After reading his mother’s Timeline Book, Xan had taken the captured Amanojuko agent to the Prison of Souls, realising that Inajda would be there too, and that his family desperately needed him, or rather his blood.
Generals Edith MehXian and Xan Medani look on from a distance, phased out of focus, witnessing, but being unable to take part in, a past conversation between their adopted daughter, Inajda and their granddaughter, Alexand.
After taking possession of the man who could not age, (Eric Mehmed) or rather his dead body, Gianti Dincrind has cloned his cells and the cells of his twin daughters Alexand and Heyem Merek, and his dead son Farokh so that she can find out a way of fixing the glitches in Amanojuko DNA. So far, she has had very little success. (This story is dedicated to Jinkx Monsoon, and all the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race, who have lifted me up throughout the pandemic. “A little bit of love, goes a long, long way. Lifting you up to a brighter day.”) Thank you to everyone who has supported Unbound boxes for the past twelve years. It, along with my son, Sam is my reason to feel alive.
Alex takes hold of Jarad’s hand, and walks him out of the kitchen, to where she attempts to navigate her way back onto the sofa. He helps her, and they sit silently for a few moments, whilst she gathers her thoughts.
