The young reporter, Gaiakeya, must return home after a narrow escape from Region 2's salt mines. When a burst of blue light freezes the very air of the military encampment she left a short time before, Gaiakeya fears the worst is to come. What if the dead miners that came back to life escape? What if the black-shelled Akshaki, with fire so hot it can melt steel with a touch, finds her city? What if more Yukkob are revived? Could the Black-Shelled Yukkob break through the military? Were they all going to die?

Once Gaiakeya returns to her news station, her boss realizes she is in serious danger. The young reporter has seen the Akshaki. The Council will come for her. Just as she was preparing to flee, the fire-wielding monster and the Black-Shelled Yukkob attack the city. Her worst fears have come true. The Akshaki is coming.

This short 8,000-word story is part 3 of 9 of an 85,000-word series to be released over the course of 2023 and 2024.
