Book II of The Darius Legacy

Teddy is in a lot of trouble and strange undertones seem to be coming from Milwaukee. But is it the Milwaukee we know, or some strange urban doppelganger? For a city is a unique living organism based on people, its history, and a plethora of other variables. How long would it take you to notice it isn’t our Milwaukee? The Milwaukee we know is the city of milk & beer, but the encroaching 21st Century has left much of the old Milwaukee in the mists of time. Like London, Paris & New York, cities are built on top of their aging counterparts yet you can still see the old days of the German-influenced metropolis with old beer brewing tanks just outside the Brewhouse Inn’s second floor hotel rooms. But the brewing of beer remains but an echo of the underlying Milwaukee with its Greek & Dutch communities and an undercurrent of native. A city never remains the same. Forces of finance, nature, crime, & immigration alter it without us noticing until much later. The new is at war with the old, as modern trends create new designs while tradition resists. A city is, and will always be, complex yet fluid in nature. So, an alternate urban center has an interesting potential when time & space is being interfered with by colourful characters.

“What kind of freak house is this place?” piped up Saria, her voice edged in fear.
Skye smiled. “Welcome to my home, Saria. I’m still learning the hidden nooks and crannies myself.”

Another ruffian barked: “But I have good news to share, boy. We’re seadogs now, out on the open water. And you know what old seadogs used to do?”

“What?” asked Teddy, his voice cracking in the night air.

“Make some unfortunate walk the plank.”

Laughter and jeering taunted Teddy. A rogue wave sprayed up in his mouth, making him choke, reminiscent of the torture perpetrated by the mad guards.

“It provided great entertainment, Teddy, my boy,” another goaded. “I feel shame to say we failed to prepare properly. We have no cannonball to tie to your foot, lad.”

Hysterical hyena laughter assaulted his sanity, hope as black as the night sky.
