XSeries: Not Aplicable

By Kaoz

Adventure / Action

Prologue


It's been 9months since the Transgenics barricaded themselves in there, inside Terminal City. 9months since any one has heard from Alec, Max, Joshua or the others. Why humans would want to stay behind that barricade with those genetic test tube mutations is beyond most people. Not me. Nope, I get the why and the how, just wish I knew they were still alive but maybe now, with her I can.

Ever since Max took out Manticore all those little Transgenics with their barcode identifier have been running around Seattle stirring up the public. It's a whole new generation of x-men out here. But this aint about me and its not about Max or Terminal City. This little story is about her, Nÿx Sawyer, another X-5 who didn't exactly make it out on her own two feet. This X-5 was dragged out, drugged up and loaded with no idea what the hell she's supposed to do or be. Not that I know what the hell she is either. I mean, she's got no barcode.

So, how do I know she's Transgenic? I have her files. Everything that was in the lab we blew up right after I put her in the back of our truck. Like I said, Transgenic. How do I know she was drugged? If you'd seen her the first time you'd get the same impression. She didn't even know her name, at least not at first.

There wasn't much she could remember about herself besides her name and the files we had mentioned two 'excursions' into the world of Manticore espionage. Everything else was a map of her DNA and some notes. There was a reason she was in the tank. The geniuses at Manticore couldn't control her so they dumped her in a water tank. Why water...?

Yeah, she was completely blank and living with us at the ranch we managed to buy just outside of Los Angeles. So why did I take her? I don't know, not really. Somehow seeing her in the tank with all those tubes- I thought of Tinga. They put her in a tank and killed her.

So what did I do with her once we got her home? First off I got her dressed; she wasn't exactly ready for a public appearance not that she's hideous or any thing like it. As a matter of fact, she's a hottie. Goddamn gorgeous! What do I do after that? I make sure she knows how to behave in public. Do you think I need her going off on a soldierly rampage with those nutsoes out there? I'm not crazy! Neither are the rest of us and we didn't need her calling attention to us. We're safe at the ranch, self sufficient with no need to go into LA or not much need to go into the city.

'Eyes Only' stopped his broadcast for most of those 9months. There was no one to tell the truth about what was going on but I hear he's back again. Some people are beginning to think he's one of us, a Transgenic because he's telling about what goes on behind the fence. I heard he loaded some pretty embarrassing feed of the raid at JamPony the night Max and the others left.

I missed a lot since I left after we blew up the DNA lab. Max was dead, Zack got captured, the lab was gone and Lydecker... we left with him, Logan knocked out in the back of the truck.

He never gave up, though. Now here I am trying to convince Nÿx she needs to go to Seattle and help the others. Help me find my sister and some how help the others too.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Lorena Boothe: A few paragraphs in and I was immersed into a new world.I wasn't expecting that at all.I thought it might take a few more chapters for sure.

Grace Mendoza: It took me around 3-4 days to finish reading this story and it feels like I'm watching a movie while reading this. Everything is so eloquently written and this MUST be published as a book and turn to a movie. There are minute spelling problems BUT nothing to bothered about. Hands down to the amaz...

Rebecca Nollen: I absolutely loved this story!!! So exciting and the movement of the story was an absolute thrill ride. I hated the ending. I need the second book like tomorrow. Can't wait to share this story with my friends and daughter.
