Surrendered : Everyone wants to be free.
I’m no exception. I dream of the day when I no longer answer to anyone else. But to achieve that dream, I have to kill another. And we’re running out of time.
Despite the support of countless new allies, things aren’t going according to plan. We’re waging a war with impossible odds. I’m falling for a dragon who’s promised to someone else. And the voice I’m hearing? She’s more important than I first thought.
I’m losing track of what I’m fighting for. With everything on the line, failure isn’t an option. And if I make the wrong choice, it will doom us all.
“Yours is really soft, though—more so than mine, if you want my opinion. Consider yourself lucky to have such naturally soft hair.”
Peacekeeper Ryoko smiled wide and the two began talking about similarities and differences between them. Amused, I listened in while paying attention to the dances the Southern and Northern Tribes were performing around the fires.
The two women had quite a bit in common, but they also had many differences, and I could tell this talk with Peacekeeper Ryoko made Ryoko feel a lot better about herself. She had always thought less of herself because she was a clone, feeling that being a clone marked her as unable to be her own person.
“I just hope they don’t try to dress the same. Then we’ll have a problem.”
“Oh, don’t even suggest that. I don’t want to deal with that again.”
“Those twin assassins you trained?”
“Yeah, that was stuff of nightmares.” Psychic assassins—the first of their kind. I was glad the project ended and they resumed standard psychic training.
Ryoko’s ears twitched as the two went back and forth. “Off topic, but I’m going to forget if I don’t ask now. Peacekeeper Ryoko, did you actually end up dying alone? That ending to your life always seemed a bit fishy to me.”
