Helga Ritter and her team of scientists have been given a new batch of test subjects to inject with ‘Plague,’ (In an attempt to spread panic and paranoia throughout the world. In preparation for the Amanojuko takeover) Juba Apfvarzian is amongst the test subjects who have been injected, but something is not quite right about him, and Helga Ritter is unsettled.

Juba Apfvarzian is a 16-year-old street magician. He spends his days entertaining the locals of Mogadishu with his plethora of magic acts. It’s getting late and the sun is going down, and the last of the daylight crowds are dispersing, so he begins to walk home. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
Juba sat in front of a huge meal prepared by a very concerned Alexand. She gave him clean clothes, a bath and healed the wounds on his feet with a strange contraption she called a writer. He has told Alex of his wife and Son’s death. It’s mid afternoon, Abouna Panak’s gone and Alex has given Juba some wine to comfort him. She sits nursing contractions, attempting to figure out how to help her old friend. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
Juba Apfvarzian was released from the floating asylum, and found that his wife Lucy and son Ayo died during an influenza pandemic. With no one else in the world to turn to, he has traced the one person who he believes could help him clamber out of the mess he’s in. Traveling from Somalia to India, he has found Alexand’s location. He discovered she is back in the military, living in a base called Saskatoon with her husband and son. Unfortunately security didn’t let him in because of his asylum record and he is being held in a detention cell on the outskirts of the city. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
Lucy Apfvarzian’s husband Juba, went missing, whilst he was out performing as a magician on the streets of Mogadishu. Lucy and their son Ayo haven’t eaten for five days and have come to The Bureau of Complaints to attempt to find out where he’s gone. (See The Floating Asylum which is the next chronological story.)
After being given the option to take a pill which stops ageing, the group of Abouna Panak’s rebels decide whether or not to take the life altering drug, SIR2HX. (Thank you so much to Pamela Spiro Wagner, a very talented poet and artist, who inspired and encouraged me to finally complete a series of stories rather than tease the reader into gouging out their (and or my) eyes. This is dedicated to you, Pam.) (CLICK HERE for next chronological story)
After breaking into a high security room onboard the Floating Asylum, (see The Other Side Parts One and Two) Abouna Panak and Heyem Merek, race to retrieve proof of an Amanojuko takeover plan. (Note: Back on Christmas Island, the resistance includes (Alexand Merek) Inajda Rekaya, Juba Apfvarzian, Jarad Vijay, Anesidor Sumian and Toreth Rek-cho.) (CLICK HERE for next chronological story)
