Last week in my weekly snippet from my WIP Rodrigo discovered that there were Zombies in the rainforest, created by his former partners who were testing experimental drugs on the forest natives. In this snippet, Isis has arrived and is observing Kirin at work.
Her lavender silk gown flows softly behind her as Isis approaches the bedside on noiseless leather sandals.
A young forest maiden thrashes upon the gurney. In an effort to prevent her from injuring herself, they limit her movement with the use of a multitude of strappings at her neck, mid-drift, waist, thighs, shins, ankles, biceps and wrists. She conducts an orchestra of click-clanks with the metal O-rings of her padded restraints, playing them all at random, disjointed intervals. The sound is disturbing in the small chamber.
Kirin seems impervious to the metallic melody as she instead stands before a machine putting out more measured electronic beeps and studies jagged, moving lines on an illuminated display next to the bed, her face pale from weeks underground. She taps the screen of a personal computer tablet in her hand, scribbles a notation and sighs. Fine lines of concern furrow her porcelain forehead as she frowns. Dark smudges under her eyes bear witness to the countless hours she has spent in the lab and in this and other clinical rooms nearby, trying to reverse the damage caused by the serum Set’s minions have administered. For most of them, my help will mean little more than allowing them the dignity of death, Kirin admits sadly.
I blog there the 18th of each month!
