Despite what you may surmise, I am NOT an overtly religious person.
This storyline has been floating in my head for awhile rent-free and I need to release it. It is my first post in this category. I hope you enjoy it
and open to ANY critique / criticism.( I realize the futuristic terminology leaves much to be desired but I focused more on the story concept.)
Thanks for letting me share. Sincerely.......KK
THE FROZEN ONE
The faint ping grew louder amidst the din of the aircraft’s audible telemetry.

Captain: “Roger, I’ll descend for a closer look.”

from the ravages of war. Priceless antiquities, works of art and thousands of pounds of pure gold. Among the plunder, a small clay vestige
containing a withering, crumbled piece of cloth……The shroud of Turin.
The contents of the U-boat were distributed among various scientific and research facilities nationwide for examination and review. Working at one
site was a Jezzer, her name was Mary. Utilizing the technology of the day she was able to clone a DNA sample from the cloth and was artificially
inseminated. 9 months later, a baby boy was born.
