XSeries: Not Aplicable

By Kaoz

Action / Adventure

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.

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.
