Part 3

“Nunah! Gugah is coming and there’s something coming with him!”

“Come away from the window then, Baisah,” said Gesah, her mother.

Gesah made an excuse for looking through the window as she took an extra bowl and spoon from the shelf. What have the gods sent us? she asked.

Another look out the window revealed Greefr picking up various tools and objects and showing them to the two-legged stranger.  She knew what that meant. (more…)

Part 2

Engrem climbed out of the landing craft after the other two.  The fresh air was a welcome respite to the canned atmosphere of the ship.  Even the acrid smell of manure on the nearby fields was preferable to sweaty bodies.

“I see one of the locals over there,” said the commander.  “You say you’re good with languages, Barinium. Go to it. We wanna mine that mountain.”

This is the first installment of what I hope to be a series of ‘glimpses’ from the first contact between koplushiandand breehahs.  These are not meant to be ‘chapters’ in a larger work, nor full blown, necessarily complete stories.  Depending on how things go, I may be able to sew them together one day.  We can hope.  To see the other installment (once there are some,) look for the link in the tags for ‘hihemide’.

Kernel of an idea for the look of a Koplushian landing craft of the period.  They don’t have transporters like on Star Trek.

Been thinking lately of trying to write a bit of fiction again. It would be a short piece about the first contact between the Koplushians and the breehah. I’ve gotten as far as naming a few of the characters and (perhaps) deciding where the story would begin. Stuff like that remains up in the air until it actually gets written in. The problem will be deciding where to end the story as if the whole entire tale were told, it might be novel length and I do NOT want to try that again, at least not now.

The title of this post means ‘the first meeting’ in the breehah language.
