Child Of Dark, Child of Light
Start Of The Journey
Rated M just to be sure, there is defiantly some major scenes of violence between two characters, which are very young.
Summery: This is basically the life story of my Character Nozomi; I created her for an RPG, so I decided that I would write a story that evolves her. It will eventually incorporate all of the series, with the exception of TOS and ENTERPIISE however I do hope that I can come up with a way to incorporate those as well. The first part of this story is in the year, 2372. Nozomi is five years old. I hope for it to stretch until the year 2387 but it may not. Enjoy.
Disclaimer: Paramount and Via Com own the trek universe, I'm just barrowing it for now.

Tiny green eyes slowly opened, settling themselves on a familiar form. "Daddy" her tiny voice said.
A tall dark haired man ran his tanned hand over her pale forehead, brushing back stray locks of ebony hair. "I'm here my little Kaya, I'm here" the small girl tried to sit up, but found that her tiny legs wouldn't move.
Her green eyes widened, "Daddy, I can't move my legs," her small voice conveying the horror that she was feeling. "Daddy" the small girls body began to sake as tears met everyone's ears.
"What's wrong, with her, why can't she move her legs?" the man asked looking at the elderly Indian woman that had been treating her. The woman scanned her once more, and then looked at the man.
"it appears that when Emray cut off her air supply, she suffered brain damage," the woman paused and scanned the small child once more. "I'm afraid there isn't anything that I can do for her hear, the only place that I know of that might be able to assist her is Starfleet medical."
The man nodded, "In that case inform the elders, that I will be taking her there, how soon before we can leave?"
"You can leave tonight, if you want." The woman resounded.
"In that case inform them that I am talking her there tonight, also inform them that they had better deal with Emray before I get back. Let them know that if they have not, then I will deal with him myself." The woman nodded as the man's attention was drawn back to the tiny girl.
"Daddy, what's Starfleet medical?" she looked at him, her green eyes, hidden under her eyebrows as the set themselves in a curious look.
"Starfleet medical, is a place a lot like this one, there are many medicine men and women there, and they can perform all kinds of magic, with all of their tools." He ran one of his long fingers down the length of her nose. She giggled before her expression turned serious. It was a look only rarely even seen in adults.
"Why, did Emray do that, how come no one likes me? He called me a demon, am I one, I mean why do I have ears like this, and how come I have curly hair, and green eyes? No one else in the village dose, how come I'm so different?"
"Emray is just jealous of how beautiful you are, and the sprits wanted you to look like an elf, because they are the most beautiful creatures that have ever existed. You are no demon, demons can't be beautiful, but you are the most beautiful girl that has ever been born, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, you understand?"
She looked down, he was keeping something from her, and she knew it. But whenever she asked him about it he said the same thing. She looked back at him and threw her arms up for him to hug her. He embraced the small child, and she clung to him, afraid to let go.

"Tokala?" a woman said coming out of a room, "Mr. Tokala Hiroshi?"
"Yes, yes that's me."
The woman's face was grim, and he knew that she didn't have very good news for him, "I'm afraid that I don't know how to repair the damage done to your daughter's brain, However, there is one person that I know of that may be able to help. His name is Dr. Bashir however, you will have to take her to deep space nine, to see him."
"Very well" he said looking gloomily at the woman.
"I will inform call him and inform him that you are on your way."
He nodded to her then made his way into the room that the woman had vacated. Tiny green eyes meet his gaze. "The medicine woman said that I could keep him" she blankly stated holding up a small stuffed dog. "It looks like Kieka"
"Yes it does," he stated taking a seat on the edge of the bed, "Kaya?"
"The Medicine woman here doesn't know how to make you better, but she told me of a medicine man that can, but he lives, in a building that floats in space, he is really powerful, and can do wonders, but we have to make a long journey to see him, and ride in a special car that can fly in space to see him. Do you understand"
She looked at him her brow wrinkled as she thought deeply about what he said. "You mean that he lives on a space station, and we get to ride in a shuttle to see him?" she asked shocking him that she knew what the objects were called her voice not hiding her excitement any.
"Yes, how did you know what they were called?" he asked wanting to know who had been telling her about the twenty-first century items, she knew about tri-carders, being that they used them often, however their tribe tried to keep the amount of technology down to a minimal, only using medical equipment.
"I found a book, in mommies study, I was looking for a book on the stars because Mrs. Taya wanted us to do a report about them, and how the spirits made them. But the book I found didn't say any thing about the spirits, but it showed all kinds of ships. Daddy, why didn't the book say any thing about the spirits?"
"That's because many people don't believe that they exist, but we do right, we know they do because we see it every where, in the trees, the sky, the moon, and the earth, now the book probably told you that stars are made out of gas, and dust right. That are pulled together by gravity right?" She nodded and he continued, "well who do you think made that gravity?"
She smiled "the spirits right daddy, they are gravity, and just because we can't see them doesn't mean that they don't exist,"
"That's right, little cat," he ran his finger along her nose, causing her to scrunch it.
"I'm sorry to interrupt, but a shuttle will becoming to get you, in about an hour, I have informed Dr. Bashir that you will be arriving sometime tomorrow, he will be waiting." The doctor stated form the doorframe.
"Thank you very much doctor," the man stated,
"Thank you and may you be blessed by the spits great medicine woman," came the tiny girls response.
The doctor smiled, and wrinkled her all ready wrinkled nose, "my the profits bless you little one." She turned and walked away.
"Daddy, what are profits?" She asked confused, "and why dose the medicine woman have a wrinkled nose?"
The man laughed, "profits are just another word of spirits, and she is just a different species, I guess I'd better start telling you about those now hung?"
She nodded, "Am I a deferent species? I mean, I have pointed ears and you don't so I must be right daddy?"
He sighed, he'd been hoping that this time you came at a later date, but she was wise beyond her years, and she had him cornered. "Yes little cat, you are. But that doesn't mean that you aren't my daughter, you are, the spirits gave you to us, so that we could have a child, when we thought that we couldn't."
"What species am I?" she asked staring at him intensely.
"That's not important right now little cat, what is important is that you sleep before we leave, I will tell you all that you need to know when you are older and can understand better, all you need to know is that the spirits made you the way you are, because they wanted you to be beautiful, and that is what you are. Now sleep."
"Sing to me, daddy, please"
"All right, Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques, Dormez vous? Dormez vous? Sonnez les matines, Sonnez les matines, Din, din, don! Din, din, don!" his strong melodic voice filled the small room, soon the tiny girl was fast asleep, waiting for her first big adventure.
