The Star Beast: Birth

by Michael Brookes
Originally published by on 01/09/2016

We watched our brother fly into the star, and we knew not why. His wings blazed, and his skin blackened as he was consumed by its fire. We were shocked by his sudden suicide.

Without warning the star exploded. For a brief moment we too feared incineration. A great hush filled the universe as the boiling plasma stopped, and then collapsed – too quickly to be by gravity’s hand.

The firestorm condensed into the shape of our brother, and his eyes filled with nuclear fire. As he approached, we also saw a terrible pain, and a greater hunger in those eyes.
