Freak

“Gods. What egg did you hatch out of?”

I get that a lot. With billions of species to mix and match genes from the birthing eggs can produce some real oddities. I get to be one of those oddities. I could change my body, but despite its eccentricities I find I’m rather attached to it.

Still. Two legs, two arms, a single head. Bilateral symmetry even. I’m a bit of a freak.

    There’s no way you could tell this given the stories, but this is actually set in the same universe as “Gates”. There’s a story waiting to be told in that setting but I haven’t figured out what it is yet, so in the meantime I’m just exploring it extracting elements of background colour and turning them into shorts.

    I haven’t yet decided if the protagonist is the same in both stories.
