Ajax was shivering from the cold. It was slightly wet where he was sitting, but not as wet as other places. He’d had time to observe his surroundings in the alleyway. The light in the sky had come on finally, but he had no idea if it was time for a new cycle of food or not. His stomach was making odd noises, so he assumed it was, but he didn’t know where to get the food from, so he just sat there in the alley, looking up at the tall buildings on either side.
One building was smooth-sided and grey, with something green growing in the dampest, darkest places. Ajax had poked the soft green stuff, and even tried to eat some, b

She made it outside just in time to see Ajax climb over the fence, but before she could even get to the fence herself, she was shot with a stunner, effectively immobilizing her and knocking her out. Now s

The last meal didn’t arrive by chute that day. Instead, a couple of nurses came to prep them for surgery. Ajax had known this was going to happen because when they operated on him three cycles ago, they had mentioned something about doing a “follow-up” in three days’ time. Ajax and Bit stood nervously by the door, crude weapons in hand, waiting for when the nurses would arrive. Ajax heard the door whoosh open from behind the metal ones that housed them in the lab. He motioned for Bit to be ready. The smaller girl nodded to his signal and readied herself with her wrench, looking nervous. Ajax was feeling nervous
