Title: Vessel

Author: greedyslayer

Character: Ana Lucia, Esau, ?

Rating: R for adult situations

Spoilers/Warnings: Again, adult situations, but not super explicit. Spoilers for whole series up to season 6 in general, but with emphasis on 6x09 “Ab Aeterno” and going all the way back to season 2.
 
Summary: AU. Jacob fails to get his representative in 1867. Ana Lucia Cortez still loses her baby. Esau has a plan to give them both what they want....

Notes: Wow, fitting this into 108 words was tough. For lost_in_108 prompt “Force.” This is was originally supposed to be a longer fic, but the challenge inspired me—so this will be sort of like a preview snippet, actually.

The smoke shifts between Jason, Shannon—finally a graying man.

Ana doesn’t dare move.

That smoke fucker flicked that ancient ship away like it was nothing.

The monster rests his hand on her belly.

“Such an empty thing.”

He smiles.

“I can fix that—give you that which you ache for....”

She closes her eyes.

“It’s not charity—I lost someone once too. But he can come back—he just needs a mother.”
He caresses her cheek. “Reincarnation, you see.”

She fights, but he takes her all the same. Presses into her hands an old cross. Whispers, “When he’s older—when he remembers—tell him my offer still stands.”
