Adventures aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 13

I rushed back to Old Scorby for help, knowing that Aurora’s medical skills while a little superior to mine would still be insufficient. Of course, I secured the door as best as I was able while at it. Which was to say lean it in a way that made it look like closed. If someoneContinue reading “Adventures aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 13”

Adventures aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 12

We landed back at the Frontier in record time. Estella parked us near the factory. Guppy was getting anxious, fearing of being nabbed by her old gang.  “As long as you stay at one of our sides the entire time you’ll be safe.”  Aurora  promised her. “Can I cut off their legs if they try?”Continue reading “Adventures aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 12”

Adventures aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 11

I found some berries and tubers that were growing aplenty in the forest. They looked edible but I wasn’t sure so I collected enough for an afternoon tea for Estella to check back abroad the Xing. Then I went deeper yet into the forest, looking for game tracks.  I found nothing. I wondered if theContinue reading “Adventures aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 11”

Adventures Aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 10

“I’m going in that direction to check out that thing.” I said before walking off. Aurora gave me a nod of acknowledgement. “Thanks for letting us know this time. If you’re not back in a couple hours we’ll come searching.” When I got close enough to see the structure for what it was, I realisedContinue reading “Adventures Aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 10”

Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 9

We decided to dig around our landing spot to figure out why it was bare. By we, I meant me and Estella. There might be a ruin lying underneath the clearing or something else interesting, we figured.  Estella marked off several spots on the ground using chalk, giving me a confident smile. “We should findContinue reading “Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 9”

Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 8

I walked up on Estella and Aurora right as Estella was calling out for H squared. “Where is he? I need him to fix up the panel on the bridge so we can pinpoint which part of the alarm has been set off. Or have you two found that out already?” I asked the twoContinue reading “Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 8”

Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 7

Full darkness had fallen, with only starlight pointing the way for wayward travellers. I could see the outline of the crater’s edge in a rough circle around the top of the forest and lights from the Xing. My peripheral vision caught flashes of light far away- a reddish firefly sort of glow, but when IContinue reading “Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 7”

Adventures Aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 6

The massive plant lashed out at me again and I returned the favour. The vines squirmed every which way but somehow managed to slip out of the range of my shot. Then I got a liberal spray of Estella’s weedkiller. As did the plant thing.  A bunch of sizzling noises and the thing starte scramblingContinue reading “Adventures Aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 6”

Adventures Aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 5

I checked in at the lounge and seeing no one, visited Estella on the bridge. She greeted me enthusiastically and tossed me a pouch of crushed flowers for the smell.  I asked her how long it would be until arrival and she gestured ahead to a moon-sized asteroid. “The ship seems set to land onContinue reading “Adventures Aboard the Chen Xing- Chapter 5”

Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 4

“What’s going on?” I bumped into Estella as she was moving towards the bridge. “No idea, either Guppy learned how to fly or the ship’s taking us somewhere important of its own will.” The Xing did that from time to time, we knew that. Side effect of the junkyard exercise. “Let’s get to the bridgeContinue reading “Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 4”
