The Truth About... Souls (part4)

- So... You said you were six, then seven, then six Ekirs. What's that all about? She said while chewing. Orlando swallowed his last piece of cake.

- Well... He scratched his hair. He let all the air out of his lungs and took a deep breath. - Well, there's a kid too.

- Who is he?

- My son. He didn't have to look at her to know her jaw had dropped. - Go on. Just ask. He could almost see the questions forming inside her head.

- How old is he?

- He's about your age I think.

- Why didn't you count him in as one of the Ekirs?

- Because he ran away.

- Why?

- I don't know. To be honest, I didn't have much to do with him to begin with.

- That doesn't sound like you. What happened?

- Juna wanted a kid. I gave in, he said shortly.

- The long version of the story, please. She asked nicely. He looked at her debating how much to tell a little kid. She was waiting patiently for his reply. And he knew he had to tell her, because it was important that she knew.

- You know about virgin souls?

- No...?

- After a soul is made it will fall pregnant after the first time having sex. Or in the case of a boy, make someone pregnant. It was made like that so that species would expand rather quickly. So we were six Ekirs, three couples. If we got the thumbs up we would multiply rather quickly just by having kids. In addition, God would make adult bodies for more new souls. You see where I'm going with this?

- I think so. She looked rather pale.

- We were young. Had been to so many places. Seen so much. We had developed into this group that others liked to call Ekirs. And we were waiting for the thumbs up, along with a lot of other groups of animals. Waiting to go to live on Chava. And suddenly Juna said she wanted to start expanding our kind. She wanted a baby. I said no, at first, but she nagged and nagged. So I gave in. She argued that it would happen eventually, and I realized she was right.

            Orlando stared at the snow in front of him.

- You don't have to tell me if you don't want to. I can see it makes you sad. He looked Marinja in the eyes and smiled sadly. He sighed.

- That's when I understood Juna wasn't interested in me. She didn't care about us. It was all about her having her baby. It wasn't about us. It was about getting it over and done with as quickly as possible. Then she was done with me and she left. She didn't care about my feelings or my needs. It was a big mistake. And I told her that. She took the kid and served him lies about how I didn't want him. Wouldn't let me near him. She wanted to punish me. He believed her, who wouldn't believe their mother? I didn't know what to do to make things right with him. We were all just fighting constantly. All of us. And I felt everyone was blaming me for everything. Then we got the news about Godessa and I left. Looking for something else. I had enough lies. I wanted to see if there was a place for me somewhere else. Juna was set on leaving. If she couldn't be what she had worked for her whole life, she would rather die. And she got everyone to agree with her. I guess I wanted a reason to live. Or just a good reason not to go back. Something like that. I don't know.
