Chapter 1: Where I began

My first memory is of lying on a table, staring up at the brightly lit, pure white ceiling.  Above me a man with dark skin and oddly pale eyes stood, staring.  He was staring at me.  "Well just look at you.  Definitely my best so far."  He caressed the side of my face.  It was the first time I'd ever experienced human contact.  "You really are beautiful."  He slapped me and I flinched.  "Good, very good.  Automatic responses seem to be working.  Now how about those vocal cords, well," he snorted, "what acts like them."  He glared at me.  "Come on then," his voice was angry now, "say something!"

"I'm not sure what you want me to say."

"Ha."  The short burst of laughter made me tense, "man, I really like you.  Soon as we're done testing you I'm send your pattern straight to mass production, assuming there are no problems."  The next part was said in a mutter that to this day I'm not sure was intended for my ears.  "Though I'll have to change the skin pattern, you're just for me."  He walked out of my line of sight and I tried to turn my head to follow but found it restrained.  This was the first time I found myself unable to move my own body but it wouldn't me the last.

He walked back into my view holding a thin, metal device.  I did not like that device, I had no idea what made me so sure but I knew, I hated that device.  “I have a few more tests to run but don’t worry” he smiled at me.  “We’ll see each other in a week or two.  Sleep well my little beauty.”  He turned the device over so that it pointed directly down at me and pressed his thumb into a small panel near its tip making a blue light glow on the end nearest me.  I jerked my hands up to cover my face but again I found I could not move myself; my arms like my head was secured to the metal work table on which I lay.  “Don’t worry my little beauty, this won’t hurt at all.”  He was lying.  He lowered the device, inserting it into my eye.  I tried to shut it but his fingers were on my eye lids keeping them wide.

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...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob.

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more.

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

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...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here.
