Night And Silence - Chapter 2
"And she's your bunkmate?"
My tray had been cleared of all meat and I was now pushing around my overcooked vegetables. It was dinner time in the North American Congress (NAC) Heli0n Base. Children and teens were seated in a cafeteria-styled setting; lunch tables stretched across the room and were filled with Isotopes. Well, Generation 2 Isotopes. Generation 1 Isotopes were privileged enough to eat in staff rooms, considering they made up a bulk of the staff, anyways.
"Well, yes, but she's my little sister."
Molly was going off again. She had dressed me in her very cutest outfit, a black shirt and white turtleneck, and adorned a large red ribbon in my hair. On Thursdays, she would sit with the older G2s and always brought me along to make her look older.
"No way!" a boy a few years older than me countered. "Except for the twins, they don't make us siblings. And they were accidents! You're totally full of it!"
"I am not!" Molly retorted. "They used som
Night and Silence - Chapter 1
I sat up suddenly in my bunk bed, smacking my forehead against the metal bar above me. With a silent groan, I threw my feet off the side of the bed and rubbed the pain away. I would probably have a massive bruise on my head for the next few days, so I was grateful that my long, strawberry-blonde hair had bangs to cover any marks.
That was the fifth time I had relived my memories in the past week. These nightmares were getting ridiculous. How many times would I be forced to experience the panic I had felt during my first few minutes of waking existence?
When I had been created, my body was about eight years old, a little young compared to other Generation 2 Isotopes, but thankfully I was created early enough to grow up at the same age as my peers. It wasn't like that made a difference, though. Most G2s still avoided me because, well, why would anyone want to waste their time trying to carry a one sided conversation? That didn't really bother me, though.
Night And Silence - Prologue
My eyes blinked open.
"How do you feel Zero-Seven-Five-Nine?"
My mouth moved silently.
"Who's there?" I asked in confusion.
"Hello? Zero-Seven-Five-Nine, can you hear us?"
"Of course I can! Where are you?" I hesitantly questioned. "I can't see you!"
A sharp snap sounded next to my ear and I jumped in surprise, looking for the source.
"Say something Zero-Seven-Five-Nine."
"I am talking!" I exclaimed. "Why can't you hear me?"
"We've got another dud," another voice announced with disappointment. "You know the orders."
"A dud? What do you mean a dud? Where am I?"
Now the first voice argued back, "She can obviously hear us! We haven't even tested her powers yet."
"She can't even talk. And from that film over her eyes, I'd assume she's blind, too. You know our orders. We have to terminate any fluke Isotopes."
"Terminate?" I'm shouting now. "Blind? Can't talk? I'm talking perfectly fine! You can't termi
