Pain (Three Days Grace) #playlist #scifi #chaos

Playlist: Music for a King — Song # 8 Pain

Pain (Three Days Grace) #playlist #scifi #chaos @kayelleallenThe first section of this song says it all. This is Pietas’s life: “I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all.” He has no fear of pain. In Bringer of Chaos he is told he’ll be killed if he doesn’t comply with demands for his capture. His response? “I’ve died countless times. I do not fear death. Death fears me.” In this scene, he is preparing to meet with his enemies by engaging in a ritual.

***

On the planet Kaffir, warriors used this ritual to summon spirits. He used it to affirm his own superior strength and prowess.

Before a copper fire pit, he plucked one blond hair, and fed it to the fire. It singed and melted.

“As fire has victory over life, so I have victory over my enemies.”

He passed a hand through the flame, and hissed at the searing heat, relishing the pain. He cupped his hand over the flame’s source, and held it until the fire went out. The burns on his palm cooled, and as he watched, the skin healed. Of all the elements, fire alone had power to linger on an Ultra’s skin. He welcomed it as a symbol of victory.

“I am powerful, as fire is powerful.”

Queen’s Breach (Critical Mass) #playlist #scifi #chaos

Playlist: Music for a King — Song # 9 Queen’s Breach

Queen's Breach (Critical Mass) #playlist #scifi #chaos @kayelleallenAnother song by The Critical Mass (I have the album these came from). On YouTube, Queen’s Breach is listed as “Epic action aggressive driving rock powerful”. One listen, and you’ll agree. If this isn’t Pietas in action as a fighter, I don’t know what is. Read chapter six while you listen to this, and you’ll see him in action.

***

The stasis pod Pietas hid behind rested on the floor, and came up to mid-thigh. It hid him, but allowed no view of the door. A sudden change of light told him soldiers had entered. Grunts, they wore beams on their chests to light their way. The idiots had left them on, which let him calculate the level of brightness. At least six.

That was all he warranted? He hardly knew whether to be amused, or insulted.

He waited for a stirring of emotion, but felt none. Smart. They’d sent either androids or special ops ghosts with those new anti-emo chips. The latter would be fun to fight. When he killed them, would they experience a human death, or did they have to be terminated like an Ultra? How well did the chips work?

He’d find out in a minute.

Spirit in the Sky (Norman Greenbaum) #playlist #scifi #chaos

Playlist: Music for a King — Song # 11 Spirit in the Sky

Spirit in the Sky (Norman Greenbaum) #playlist #scifi #chaos @kayelleallenSpirit in the Sky is an oldie but goodie. been around since 1969, and I can’t tell you how many movie trailers it’s been in. Funny thing is, it rarely ends up in the movies themselves. I love the sound of this one. The minute it begins, you recognize this. It is probably the least like Pietas, but I love the song. Spirit in the Sky always makes me feel good. I needed that when I wrote this intense book. Everyone needs an upbeat song in their playlist. I included a snippet with humor for this one.

***

Pietas waited until the rain had passed and the sun had come back out before he crawled out of the water-filled hole. He dragged the waterlogged packet of blankets after him.

Six grabbed the soggy packet and helped him drag it from the puddle. They plopped onto the wet ground, side by side. Six pointed to the parachute, half covered with water. “At least it didn’t blow away.”

“You sure did.”

Six laughed. “I did at that.” He wiped his face, smearing mud. He looked over at Pietas and chuckled, but bit his lips and turned his head.

“What?”

After looking back at Pietas, Six laughed again.

“What!”

Six pointed to Pietas’s face. “That mask in the rain… not a good look, Ultra. Like a ‘weapon of mascara destruction’ went ballistic.”

“Weapon of what?” All at once, Pietas got the joke. He burst into laughter, and threw himself onto his back, into the mud. Using both hands, he wiped his wet face. Black smudged his fingers and palms. “If my people could see me right now, they’d never let me live it down.”

“What? You think I will?”
