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.

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...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

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...

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...

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

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

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...

Dru83: This is probably the fourth time I've read this one. I read this a few times on fictionpress as dru83. This is a wonderful story. It still needs a lot of shining up as there are many instances of punctuation issues, grammar issues, and issues with using the wrong word. But all that still can't ta...

Karl12: This is a very unusual sci-fi mystery. I enjoyed the suspense which was present throughout the story. I loved how I never knew what to expect from the characters. This made the story thrilling and made me suspicious of everything and everyone. You have a great style of writing – one which captiva...

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.

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...
