Mercury Ice—The Journey
(Book Two of a Trilogy)

CHAPTER ONE—MAY 2020—60 MILLION LUNATICS

Her painting was destined to someday become a masterpiece on Earth, that planet two sky-spheres downrange. That painting was of course BLUE—EARTH, painted by an alien, from a perspective view originating 49.3 million miles away.

Even now, at its incomplete stage, it was coming alive with a certain motion and chiaroscuro. In the last few days of the artist working the oils, the light appeared to sparkle, surreally illuminating the surface of the canvas-captured orb.

Most recently, the painting had begun to take on a three-dimensional feel, as the Leveron artist continued adding various shades of blue deep into the canvas, both shades opaque and others seemingly transparent.

But the young Leven artist, Darklin VanLacy, was not finished yet. Now the hardest part—adding the starlight and the Sun Star’s enhanced airglow which lit up Earth’s planetary atmosphere. It was a sight she had seen daily for seventeen years. Although she was finding it difficult to duplicate, Darklin was determined to paint it precisely.

On this night, hours of painting had finally calmed her from the previous day’s events on Leven. It was in the dim-dark hours when she put her brush down, sleep overtaking her.
