posting excerpts from Baswin,
the fifth book in my Sci-Fi Romance
series, Taxyon Space. Baswin is an alien Warrish ‘merman’ who is living in secret on Earth
disguised as a human. After masked men searched his brother’s apartment, Baswin
decided to take precautions. He has flown to a wilderness region and landed by
a creek. You can read about it in last week’s excerpt at https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2021/08/no-signs-of-habitation-exercpt-from.html
This week, you can read
about the alien attributes of Baswin, the amphibious ‘merman’.
Confident that nobody was
watching, Baswin slipped out of the flyer onto the rock. A bird screeched an
alarm from a branch overhead. He looked up. The towering trees with dark green
foliage were unlike anything on his home planet. They exuded the scent of pine
resin, peace and solitude.
He jumped off the rock slab into
the layer of brown needles at the base of the trees and laughed in delight. It
seemed an ideal place to make his next transition. He and Alarik had arrived on
Earth disguised as wealthy Belters, Rick and Basil Kent. Now, he would become
Ben Brown. Ben Brown was a common name in the northern Americontinent, although
not so common as to rouse suspicion.
Ten lines and a little
more for you to read:
Strolling down to the creek,
Baswin stood on the bank and eyed the water longingly. The dry atmosphere at
this altitude tended to irritate the delicate filaments of his gills. Crouching
on the bank, he splashed a handful of water over his face. Upstream and
downstream, sunlight and shade dappled the rippling water. Much of the creek
was too shallow and rocky for a swim. But the rock spur where he had landed
dropped into a deeper pool, an enticing place for an amphibious Warrish man. If
he jumped in, he could wet his gills.
Without further delay, he removed his shirt and boots. He unfastened the lightweight armored vest concealing his alien attributes, his gill slits, four nipples and the unhuman contours of his chest. He stripped off the remainder of his clothes and plunged, feet first, into the pool. The splashes scarcely washed his chest. When he stood erect, cold water lapped at the middle of his thighs. Grateful for the chance to submerge, he flipped onto his back and sank under the surface. His gills opened, filtering oxygen from the water. He stretched out his legs and wiggled the six toes of each foot.
