Who was she?
Floyd stared with great interest at the slumbering young woman as she was slowly freed from the silky gray cocoon.
She was quite striking Floyd realized. But more importantly, she was the first new person to be generated in more than fifteen thousand years!
For eons, the strange fibrous life form known as “The Cotton” had regularly produced nearly innumerable copies of the same seven people. The group members lived rather ordinary lives and, when old age or accidents interceded, died ordinary deaths.
But Floyd and his companions always started out in the same very unusual and unhuman-like way as cocoon-bound twenty-five year old adults in full possession of their past memories.
Everything would change with the arrival of the intriguing young woman.
