After losing her hair, Alexand Merek has been removed from her cell by the scientists who have been experimenting on her for the past four years. She has been taken to an isolated room, where all she can hear is the sound of inhuman breathing. (See The Floating Asylum parts One Two and Three) There’s an uneasy feeling in the lower deck. The wallpaper is peeling, and Alexand feels very exposed and frightened. She has no weapons and her body is close to collapse. Hopes of returning home one day, and seeing her husband, Jarad and son, Samuel, are replaced by a strong need to return to the safety of her cell. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
After returning from the science laboratory, (read The Floating Asylum 2) and further experiments, Alexand and Juba manage to remain together, but something is happening to Alexand, and she needs Juba to help her as her hair begins to fall out. This story is part of a series which concludes next week, and is taken from Juba’s perspective. (Trivia: Hair-loss is associated with a ‘plague’ sweeping through communities on the outside of the ship. Alexand’s wife Katherine De Somme died from it after being ‘silenced’ by the military, but Alexand is convinced this is not the same condition.) CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
Alexand Merek and Juba Apfvarzian have survived inside a floating asylum ship, whilst being experimented on by scientists. Others have not been as fortunate. Most die after a few days, and neither Alexand nor Juba understand why they are still alive. (See The Floating Asylum Part one) Alexand has been in the asylum for almost four years and her hopes of returning home to her family are now a distant memory. This story will be told in three parts. This is the first instalment from Alexand’s perspective. (This story features Helga Ritter, known to Alexand as ‘Ophelia’.) CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
