Love Undreamed Of
Composed and sung by Puabi

“A single woman dreams of sweet love.”
“And you, darling?”
“I did, then. But then I found you. Now I have a love I never dreamed of!”
Lying so close beside me
His head resting warmly on my knees
I hear his every breath
It flows like a spring breeze
He reaches his hand to mine
I lock them together so tight
Slowly the hours pass by
Slowly my sorrow and loneliness dies
Lying together with him all of the night
“Together, now and for-ever!”
“Yes, darling.”
“Awww, beloved!”
Love Undreamed Of
Romantic song for a prospective album by and for Puabi.


Part 3. The Infant

Two nights later.

Vamana lay upon the floor behind the foyer of the old mandira, unconscious from both pain and fear. Slowly, painfully, the avatar crept forth from her uterus. Her abdomen had not swollen as customary with human embryos; but after all, this was not at all a human embryo. It was a creature that nobody in all of India could have imagined existed. When it emerged, it gazed around it with deep, dark, round eyes like a toad or a lizard. Its dark pupils reflected no light, appeared dead or blind, but they saw. They saw Pandit Hari Rajpal, who stared with wonder but neither shock nor fear. They saw Vamana, who lay upon the floor and had not revived. They saw the settings of the room in which the creature had emerged. Then, it turned its head, which was half-human and half-reptilian, towards Vamana. Its maw opened and a long, thin, slimy, dripping, flailing tongue suddenly lashed out. It whip-lashed the air around it and then streamed into her ear.  A remote, alien voice spoke to Rajpal.

“Hari Rajpal, this girl is, as you say, mad. She must be exterminated. I have started the process for you now. Stand by and wait. Your purpose is now completed. When the girl dies, bury her normally but do not mark the grave. Mark my words. Nobody will search for her. Farewell!”


The infant creature which had fully emerged from her body slithered into the shadows. Vamana’s ears suddny burned with a fever worse than mere viral infection. In her inner ears, alien strains of bacteria mingled and interacted ravenously.  Vamana revived from the agony and screamed madly.Then, she went stark raving mad and died. Hari Rajpal searched for a secret plot of earth behind the mandira. He found one and proceeded to dig the grave. Then, he dropped Vamana’s corpse into the pit and filled it with earth; and then he covered the grave with earth. He made sure that it was level like the field around it. As warned, he left it unmarked.

At the moment when the embryo had emerged, a police lieutenant from the town had learned of the murders, and arrived at the condominium to investigate. He inspected the corpses thoroughly and then interrogated the neighbors. Some had not noticed the corpses. The neighbors who saw them and phoned could only report that they had seen. Nobody could identify the murderer. Nor could the lieutenant find the weapon. When he was leaving, a strange boy with large, round reptilian eyes and bright pupils emerged from the shadows and gazed at his back. Then, he spoke with a man’s voice.

“Assault with intent to kill, and kidnap--.”

The lieutenant heard him and turned to ask him a question, but the boy had vanished into the shadows. The lieutenant wondered who spoke to him and how he knew that the people were murdered. Then he returned to his post to report his findings.

AGHORA [Part 3]
Vamana's unintended infant, half-reptilian like Tsathoggua, emerges and infects her with his tongue so that she will die. Then he warns Pandit Rajpal to bury her in an unmarked grave and disappears. He appears finally as a boy and tells the police a possible motive but, when the police ask a question, he disappears again.

Case is closed.


Michel-le-fou's Profile Picture
Michael Rubin
Artist | Professional | Literature
I have been writing since secondary school where I began to receive recognition for my fiction as class assignments. In university I was a section editor for the school newspaper and continued writing stories and poetry as well as news articles and editorials. I received several awards. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from a good university and went abroad, to teach ESL to support my interests, [Writers never earn enough by writing!] I earned good pay and recognition for my skill in teaching too. Recently, I edited and wrote several dissertations. The students I wrote for passed viva voce and got degrees.
My principle genres of fiction are horror and science fiction. Conditions do not warrant me to write long stories like before, but I can manage 10 pages.
