Re: All roads lead to Jesselton

The rain outside was one of those great tropical rains that seemed to force everything out of its path. In the Jesselton of yesteryear, it would have caused a great flood, but in the new Jesselton, the floodworks were working, and there was no danger. Yet it was heavy enough to stop wholly the life ...

Re: All roads lead to Jesselton

Is this real? Is this really happening? Harper stared in the mirror. The Lieutenant-General pips stared back at him. Brevet, of course, but still. A Lieutenant-General. He held a whisky glass in his hand and suddenly dropped it; he swore very loudly, and there was a knock at the door. He picked the ...

Re: All roads lead to Jesselton

'Your report, Corps Commander.' The King's Cousin sat upon the chair backwards; his stomach leaked out of the chair's spine. Lieutenant-General Maximillian Colton-Kelsey stood very still. His cap was underneath his arm, and he had only a wisp of hair. Hampton was a fighting man. His grandfather had ...

Re: The Scouring

Somewhere in Uiri's Mountains He splashed tepid water on to his face, twice. Drew his razor, went to work on the expanding stubble. Brushed his hair back with a service comb, the same one he'd had for years. There was no wax or oil, and he made a mental note to find some when they came to a settlem...

Re: All roads lead to Jesselton

When he was a boy, Harper's father had taken him to Jesselton. It had been a long ride on the train from Kuantan. They had stood outside The Mall, that huge open air green shopping centre, and Harper had eaten ice cream. This is the largest shopping centre in the Western Commonwealth. Maybe in the w...

Re: All roads lead to Jesselton

There must have been about thirty people in the room; somehow Harper felt he was the lowest of them all. He was certainly the youngest. The King's Cousin had told him that he would do all the talking, and everything would be fine. Somehow, after everything he had been through, Harper found it hard t...

Re: All roads lead to Jesselton

When Olivia came home from work, she unlocked her door, greeted her cat, and then found three men sitting in her living room. She recognised one as Harper. The other two burly and bald Malays she did not know. At first she was in total shock, then she feigned continued shock, then she sat down and c...
