The small book entitled ‘Serendipity’ bulged slightly for three seconds inside Pip's saddlebag
and though nobody saw the odd event, it did happen. That's the amount of time The Splitter
took to find what he wanted. it was on Page 36 and as we know, that is the same number of
minutes that Tibbs, Nenothtu and Boy In A Dress were out of 'sync' on The Yydryl.
Oddly, it was the same length of time that BIAD slipped out of existence in the Dugway
Proving Grounds... weird, nuh?!
...Fallen the fruit of Petra, wrath held within sweet skins and soaked flesh.
Of the blind man that travels under such delights, eyes water with a different hunger.
Gemini weeps for her curse and heavy breast call across the void to her own.
The cask of Hope waits there and quenches of the salty tears...
The grey Being sat back among the thrumming Time Lines and pondered the words, the stars
twinkled in his eyes as he sought the answer. The 'Neo' from the future wasn't a glitch in the
system, the humanoid was real and The Splitter believed the 'mystery-man' already had a
head-start because of calling him by his true name.
The Splitter (or Yeneth) twisted his lips in annoyance as he realised a visit to Tibbs would be
in order, the arrogant-dwarf may have information that was vital -he thought.
With a glance towards the Centre, The Splitter half-expected to see the leaf-heavy Tree Of
Knowledge waiting with the four Demon-Dogs and their master, the Adara constellation
rotated around slowly in his relief.
"And what of the Devil's dreams?" Yeneth whispered to the massive circle of stars, the one
known as Boy In A Dress had taken to sleeping -that itself was a strange antic, but now he
was struggling with troubled dreams, The Splitter promised himself to ask the Man/Girl if he
got the opportunity.
The corridors of the Starship felt cramped as the Time-Mechanic arrived outside of the room
of the ancient Vithian known as Tibbs. A smile came to those thin-grey lips as he imagined
appearing on the otherside of the door and finding the bearded Puzzler-of-Paradoxes with
his Alien-lover, the thought of Dag and Adam in the Tower at Carbiox flitted by.
"To love is to err.." Yeneth whispered and tapped on the Bio-metal hatchway.
"Yer gonna have to avoid his jab, Neno... there's just two-more rounds and 'ah reckon you're
square on points" Billows hissed around the swab, but the sweating man's eyes told a
Nenothtu's left eye was almost closed and most of that side of his face was numb, the boxer
who usually showed a lop-sided smile to his Seconds merely nodded and spat more blood
into the bucket below him.
Jimmy 'The Hammer' Martino sat on the stool across from the man who wanted his title and
knew the belt was his, Neno was breathing hard and during the last Round, Jimmy saw the
taller guy rock back when he caught him with a good left. Yeah, he had him where he wanted
Neno looked back with blurry-vision and saw the man with the black flat-top smiling his
gum shield at the roaring crowd, the Vandal smiled to himself-inside... he was eating this
up with a spoon.
The guy in the white-shirt and dicky-bow rang the bell and the two pugilists rose to their feet
and began again.
The Library swam with a strange song from a croaking female-voice as The Splitter entered
and glancing at the hundreds of tomes lining the walls, he moved closer towards the middle
of the room.
A table stretched across the area and Yeneth noticed more books laid open with pages turned
at the corners, the subject matter was about myths and legends of different species.
The smile appeared again as he traced a slender finger along a page that displayed star charts
of nearby, the Adara constellation was about halfway down.
"Adara...Adara?" The Splitter said to himself, then he suddenly realised that Jenovah was
talking and he also realised that he should have been listening.
The dollar-shining eyes scanned the words and in their a twelve-point Helvetica, the answer
sat like a royal plum. ADARA: A Double Star -also known as 'The Maidens...
As the sound of Tibbs rummaging among shelves hidden at the back of the room reached
The Splitter, the Time-Mechanic turned and left, his questions weren't needed here.
Those cramped corridor walls listened as the one now known as 'Yeneth' whispered a
'Thank You' to the voice from Beyond.
"Ship...?" The Splitter said softly "...can you direct me to the room where the fair-haired females
from your last adventure -reside?" The small Being waited with his hands behind his back politely.
The Yydryl cooed "Follow the blue lights please" and Yeneth nodded, his small feet stepped
