Katherine lies in bed, listening to Alex and Farokh talking in the other room. She feels too tired to get up and join them. Instead she contemplates her steadily deteriorating future. (The post-human man refers to Ichitumbu Jalhavi, See Amanojuko issues 1 , 2, 3 and 4. The woman who infected Katherine is Helga Ritter, see Amanojuko Part 3) CLICK HERE for next chronological story.

I really enjoyed your artwork and writing -it’s inspiring!! Do carry on…
Katherine’s voice is so lovely and touching — one of your strongest narrators. Her strength and resolve are so clear, tempered by the slightest glimmers of both fear and hope. Such a human voice; so genuine.
Thanks, Helena, yes, Katherine is very dear to me.
Hi Cheryl! This is very moving. I particularly like the detail about the clumps of hair. And Katherine and Alex work off each other so well – relaxed, comfortable in their relationship but tense at the same time. It’s a heady cocktail. Your drawings are wonderful. And, yes, another thing to look forward to on the 25th!
Hi Richard, yes Alex and Katherine are still in the honeymoon stage of their relationship, which is an odd contrast to having to deal with Katherine’s illness. It’s really natural to write for them, so I’m glad that comes across. Oh and I thought I’d make next issue into a Christmas present. Hope you have a great Christmas!
Great idea! Thanks! Hope you do too!
Gently human and fascinating as ever Cheryl…thank you for creating this amazing world…
Thank you for giving me a reason to share it. Hope you have a great Christmas, John.
Thank you Cheryl and I wish you the same…
Keep writing and illustrating. I like your style. Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas.
Thanks, Mary. Happy Christmas to you too!

Thanks, Hansi, good to meet you btw.
