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.

I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Nichole P. Conard: The characters are well created and pull you along through the story. The plot is well thought out, with some interesting turns. I was unsure what was going to happen, several times in the story, which is a grand point, as who wants to know they have figured out the story correctly...once they ge...

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...

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

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

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...
