  (Small Fry Chapter 4)


In a bright flash of light,
we disappeared from our living room to reappear in another, in a corridor of
the futuristic stronghold of the once powerful Circulate.


The headquarters was inside
a massive glass dome, which housed late 25th Century
technology.  It had black floors, open
ceilings to allow natural light in, frosted-over, sliding glass doors, and

We exchanged a look of
wonder at this news and I even touched his arms to feel them for myself.


Ki went on, “I do have a
theory though.”


“Yeah and?”  He prompted.


“In the animal kingdom, there
are males who become stronger when the female is expecting.  The male is preparing to become the provider
as well as the protector.  Maybe that’s
what’s happening now

“So, you’ve been enjoying
the European Werewolf characteristics which have arisen in Aunt B?”  He remarked.


“Hell yeah!”  My mate proclaimed, as if it were a
given.  “Not that B was ever a cold fish,
it’s just nice that she needs me as much as I need her.”


“Declan!”  I cried out louder, as I gave him a
shove. 


The Medicine Man regarded
him closely then

“Hmm.”


Ki rubbed his jaw, as he
looked on my results somewhat perplexed. 
Declan and I looked on worriedly, as he read the results on the
hand-held medical scanner. 


“What is it?” My husband
asked in concern.  “What’s wrong?”


I was lying on the couch in
the lounge room, as was the custom for my once a week check-ups.  Declan was sitting to the side

“There
you are!”  He walked out of the kitchen
with his hands on his hips.  “I was about
to come up there after you.”


“You’re
a bossy boots, you know that?”  I poked
him in the side.  Next, I fetched my
plate of toasted sandwiches sitting on the kitchen bench.  I saw Declan had made himself one too, which
I handed to him on my way out.


“What

Just
as I turned to leave, I noticed something. 
It was a red trunk which looked worn with time.  It was half hidden, underneath another
cardboard box and for the life of me, I don’t remember seeing it before.  But I felt this undeniable urge to
investigate, or maybe it was one of my all-knowing feelings?


“B!”  I heard the distant call of my husband.  “Your

I carried the box up the
staircase to put it on the floor, in the small upstairs hallway.  Next, I reached up and pulled the chord
hanging from the ceiling, which opened the hatch to the attic.  The fold-up ladder which was attached,
unfolded before me. 


Using one hand to carry the
box, I climbed the small ladder up into the dark, dusty attic. 


Immediately, I

“So this is the last of
your Dad’s stuff, huh?”  He picked up the
baby album, to peruse through.  “It’s
hard to think of your father being a baby. 
Whenever I think of Hunter Wisetail, I remember this disapproving, old
Lokoti Werewolf, constantly looking over my shoulder.  It was like he was just waiting for me to
screw up.”


“He wasn’t that bad!” I

My mate crossed over to my
side as I turned tearful at the photo. 
These people whom I hadn’t seen for over two centuries, could still
bring a tear to my eye.  I had to sniff
as my nose began to run, with my longing to see my immediate family again.


“Don’t worry, B.”  He put his arm about my waist.  “This afternoon, I’ll go to Forrest and
Caesar myself and ask

He and Walt disappeared
upstairs, as I stomped back into the kitchen whilst snarling obscenities under
my breath.


I don’t get Declan…even
after two centuries of marriage.  He runs
hot and cold more than the kitchen faucet! 
One minute he’s happy then he’s snappy. 
Who’s the pregnant woman here, me or him? 


Then I paused…my husband
has been talking to the men
