This story focuses on vestigial artifacts from a throwback
who emerges from obscurity. This is
a densely written manifold text which
conceals messages from a goal set long ago.
Turgid phraseology and languid smarminess deplete
the manuscript of complacency generating dogma.
English words that are excessively convoluted are
respelled discriminately, lending creative
erudition to an otherwise commonplace fiction.
An effort is made to preclude ubiquitous elocution,
however, the effort fails, dramatically at times, but always
Chapter 1: An Embarkment
Vistas of unlimited horizontality assaulted the eyes

Replete with gruntled expressions, Lois stretches
her appendages for a bevy of moments. Laxing
and relaxing, peatedly and repeatedly, she stretches

discriminately - the opposite of indiscriminately

tries to return to by relaxing.
peatedly - adverbial form of peated; peated is the suffix-free
version of repeated. The
root word, peat, means to go towards, seek (Latin, petere).

cipation - taking; taking place; taking part;
occurring; existing; perception of an occurrence
