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.

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

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

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective. I think that they would be more than a few people that want to know what happened at Hogwarts during that last year.As far a...

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 ...

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

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.

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...
