When Shepard wakes on Lazarus Station, surrounded by strangers wearing an enemy’s colors, she knows things are very, very wrong. She’s willing to do what needs doing for the sake of the disappearing colonists, but not at the cost of losing herself or becoming something she hates. Which is, she finds, easier said than done.
Once, when she was little—four, maybe five; just old enough to have memories of it—she’d nearly drowned. Her parents had warned her again and again and again about the spring rain and the fast water, and she wasn’t stupid. Still, one moment she’d been picking flowers or chasing frogs, safely distant, and the next she was in the swollen creek, little body buffeted by the current, unable to tell up from down and sky from earth. Her fingers clawed futilely, unable to find anything to grip as cold water rushed into her nose and down her throat.
She was never sure later if she actually remembered her father’s large hands pulling her from the stream, his desperate mouth forcing air back into her half-drowned lungs, or if those things became memories filled in by hearing the story told and retold in the years afterward. She remembered the cold, though, and the helplessness. She remembered thinking the words I’m dying and knowing it was the same thing as the McMillans’ dog or Julie Stark’s grandmother and she wouldn’t be coming back, not ever. And she remembered her father’s warm arms curled around her, her trembling body pulled close to his sodden chest, as his hot tears dripped into her hair and he whispered her name over and over and over again like a prayer.
When Shepard woke with no memory of having fallen asleep, palms flat against the cool metal of a slab, it wasn’t her father’s voice calling her, and the woman saying her name over and over didn’t sound like she was praying. Even over the tinny comms, the command was clear—get out of that bed now—and Shepard found herself reacting with military-honed instinct even as unfamiliar pain screamed along her nerves—your scars aren’t healed—and her breath caught, her lungs willing to take in only a fraction of their usual volume. Raising a hand to protect her eyes from the glaring overhead lights, she gasped as her feet hit the ground and sent another shockwave of pain up her limbs. The woman told her to get a gun, so Shepard did it. The woman told her to move, so she moved.
There’s A Lake Where You Can Swim With Jellyfish That Won’t Sting You
There is a magical lake in the Rock Islands of Palau where you can swim with the jellyfish worry-free.
The lake became a tourist attraction and people can go swimming and snorkeling with them.
The jellyfish lost their stingers over the years because they don’t need them to fight off predators.
Learn more about the land of friendly, magical jellyfish.
