Chapter Twelve


Aria shrieked over their frequency. “Help! I need help!” She tried to control her trembling.

“Where are you?” Mordjan’s reply was quick.

“In the engine room. Take the blue corridor all the way to the end.”

Logically, she didn’t know why she was reacting so strongly to Roihan’s injury. But it had triggered something overwhelming inside her, a pain she hadn’t known she was capable of feeling. She was dizzy, nauseous, with pain beating at the back of her head where the chip was placed.

Somehow, he’d become her one constant in this new world—the one the Ardaks had lied about. The thought of never having his eyes on her again, never seeing the emotion behind them, made her want to die, too.

The emotion was threatening to overrun her processors.

She stared down at him, disbelieving, and suddenly she knew. Her mind might not remember him, but her heart did. This was her husband.

And he had just died to save her from the laser.

She tried to clear her mind, to think.

He was unconscious, but his body was still trying to suck in air through one of his lungs. He wasn’t dead. At least, not yet, so she had a chance to save him.

She grabbed him by the arms and began to drag him from the chamber, her grief giving her superhuman strength.

By the time she got him to the door, Valdjan and Mordjan were there. She ripped off their helmets, and when they took in Roihan’s condition, their faces turned grave.

“Fuck!” Mordjan’s eyes were hard as he looked down at Roihan. “Are you there, man?”

There was no response.

Mordjan slapped him—hard, and Roihan groaned. “Stay with us, man. Don’t close your eyes.”

“Let’s get him to the med bay,” Valdjan said. “Quickly.”

They took Roihan from her, carrying him between them as they all raced through the ship.

She led them down corridor after corridor and up several flights of stairs. Tears streamed down her face, and she brushed them away, trying to think of how to help him. She stopped. “I don’t know how to use the equipment.”

“You don’t?” Mordjan’s lips twisted into a frown.

“No. And the files on cyborgs are all password protected. I haven’t been able to crack it.”

Mordjan stared down at Roihan, who was pale, barely breathing with his other lung. “Then he doesn’t have a chance. We can’t fix him.” He looked up at Valdjan, who shook his head.

Aria shrieked again and sank to her knees, grabbing Roihan’s hand with her own, her heart shattering, her hope dissolving before her. It finally overwhelmed her and she recognized it for what it was. Despair. She’d been trying to push it down, but it bubbled up until it overpowered her. Tears slipped down her cheeks even faster.

She brushed at them with her hand. She could see the wetness, along with dirt and smears of blood. Roihan’s blood. Setting him down gently on the floor, she touched her forehead to his and scanned as fast as she could through every file she had ever uploaded into her own chip.
