I wake up to the sound of a machine humming. I look around the room i’m in. Everyone is gone. “Probably in other rooms,” I think.
“Wow you're smart for a 13 year old,” I hear a snide remark. Harmony I think.
“As I said, really smart.,” she says again.
She’s reading my mind! I think and then I look over and she’s grinning.
“REALLY smart I guess!” she says with a laugh.
How can she read my mind? I ask testing, that it’s real.
“Oh it’s very simple really. I am a genetically enhanced person or as my dad calls it ‘a 2.0’,” she says. Or I think she said. Then I realize she is talking to me IN my head.
“What the hell!?” I say out loud and cover my mouth. “Sorry you just…. scared me.”
“Well, basically, if you came here with the ring and since technically you all did, you have to be given the serum,” she says with a mischievous grin.
“What serum?” I ask cautiously.
“Oh just this,” Harmony says and holds up a syringe with like a 2 in. needle full of gold liquid.”Now hold still.” She says as she pushes a button and restraints come up around me.
“Well it would be hard not to.” I say.
“Correct.” She says and I feel the tip of the needle pierce my skin and then i black out again.
I wake up in a similar room with white walls and a white bed covered with white sheets and pillows and a white desk and a white dresser and two white doors. I feel like a polar bear in a snowstorm. I sit up after I realize that I am unchained. I look at the wall and see a series of metal buttons. I push one that says bed and a remote comes out of a chamber in the wall. I push the ‘fold’ button and my bed is put back to normal. I open the drawers of the dresser and find a tablet and a journal. I open the journal and there is a name page with a take-out sticker. I write my name down and then look under the sticker as I peel it off. It said something like this.
I could practically hear Harmony reading this out loud before putting the sticker down but either way I stick it on the front and it locks. I pull out the I-pad and grabbed the journal and then there is a necklace there and so I pick it up and it has an enter and exit ticket and a meal ticket on it. I put it around my neck and walk towards the door. It slides open on command. I walk out the door with my stuff at hand and into the hall as the door shuts behind me.
