Chapter IV




I am poked and prodded, cut open and sown shut. Machines replacing my natural parts. I hold on to the last shards of my sanity, nearing the point where I'd break, no longer wanting to stay human. We were a terrible race anyways, why should I wish to be a part of it?

Finally it stops, and I ebb away into unconsciousness. 

- - -

I awake in a small metal chamber, the thunder of engines pounding all around me. I cannot see, grey steel above me and grey steel around me and grey steel bellow me. I am lying down, my limbs leaden. 

"Get up!" Someone shouts, and I struggle, but I am unable to move. So much of me is now machine. How could I bear to look at myself?

"Sorry, sir!" A hoarse voice shouts in response, and I hear a scuffle of footsteps even over the roar of the engines. 

The metal above me swings away, revealing a hallway of white plastic panelling. 

"Hurry up and get out!" A gruff man shouts, his face scruffy with a black beard that looks like its last trim was delivered by a butter knife. His eyes are dull blue-grey, marking him as Modified, having implants in his eyes to protect from harsh UV rays and enhance his vision. 

I stumble out, trying to keep my gaze distant and movements robotic. I tumble down the corridor. 

"Your rooms on the left." He grunts, and I dart inside, keeping my limbs stiff.

Inside the room there is a small bed, a desk and chair, and a lamp. The floor is metal, the walls are cool white plastic. 

I collapse down on the bed, still exhausted, too exhausted, and slip into sleep before I even realize I've closed my eyes.
