Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 86: Eldenath Balsara Part 3

Eldenath uses chores as cover for time with her own memories. Something she would get in trouble for if anyone else in the House of Plenitude and Mirth, could read her mind. (Apart from her friend Samuel Merevija, who is also an inmate) (CLICK HERE for next chronological story)

  1. Do you suppose they still listen to CCR in 4039, darling? Because I had “Born on the Bayou” stuck in my head before I ever reached the bottom and learned it was set in Louisiana. Very well done.

    1. Music’s banned in The House of Plenitude, but Alexand would know that song, (as she’s obsessed with music) Glad you enjoyed Eldenath’s story. She’s one of my most precious characters too and also under used in these short stories (unlike in the books, where she’s a main character.) Thanks Helena!

  2. Eldenath is 14 now. I cannot wait to read more about her when she is abducted by Alexand and told her father is not the monk she had thought he was. She seems to grow up to look as beautiful as Giselle. And possibly as talented. Also, Samuel! Boy, isn’t he gorgeous!

    1. Hi Vera, I’m glad, in fact I may write another story about Giselle (You’ve inspired me to do so) and the story about Alexand abducting Eldenath and Sam, I’ve saved for the book, (along with other things I can’t mention here) so I’m really happy this interests you. (and yes, Sam is a handsome man!) πŸ™‚ Sam’s story is next week, and I can’t wait to share that with you.

    1. Hi Eric, yes Eldenath’s a very practical and adaptable girl, but misses her mother a lot. I wouldn’t want to be trapped in the House of Plenitude, either, *shivers*

  3. Hi Cheryl! Eldenath’s great. This is such a nice, touching scene. And I love the way you describe the bigger picture with such small gestures.

    1. Hi, Richard, yes, Eldenath’s a hidden treasure for me and there are so many things I’d like to tell you about her but can’t! I’m glad I’m able to share parts of her story here with you and that you enjoyed reading.

  4. So lovely to relax in the morning here and read this slice of Eldenath’s journey. You make the scene so easy to picture.

    1. Good to meet you, I love the idea you have to read a book from every country in the world! Thank you, glad you enjoyed stopping here and good luck with your journey. You’re welcome here any time!

  5. Hi, thanks for the follow! Did you draw all these pictures? They’re wonderful – I can’t take my eyes off them. Looking forward to more of your posts. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Soul, you’re welcome and good to meet you. Thank you, I’m glad you’re enjoying the stories (yes they’re my illustrations) and good luck with your writing. Best wishes, Cheryl

  6. Dear cheryl, I am always in awe when I see your sketches, you are so talented. This one really caught my eye as it is exactly what I had in mind for a raised walkway in my mythology called the Imperial Highway that links up the towns and cities of various islands in my fantasy world, high above dangerous terrain where certain monsters and other hazards lurk. This was a stark visual that refreshed my imagination and made me smile. Thank you so much, Cheryl. Best wishes from Baldy πŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad Kieran, good luck with your work, I know how much it means to have the world inside your head grow more prolific and images can set things off. Imperial Highway sounds fascinating. I’m seeing semi arboreal superstructures, mixed with urban buildings. I love the Japanese style architecture which blends art and buildings together. Best wishes to you also. Cheryl πŸ˜€

  7. I am reading your stories all out of order!! I’ve got to straighten myself out.
    As usual, I am totally captivated by your illustrations. Their faces and expressions make your stories so REAL!
