Here's the story scoop: Laina is one of the last surviving humans after earth was destroyed when the humans tried to kill the cyborgs they'd created when the cyborgs rebelled and escaped. Now the Cyborgs, with permission of the Galactic High Council have free rein to pursue the last remnants of the human race and do with them as they see fit. Rorik, a cyborg lieutenant stumbles upon Laina hiding in a ship and he captures her, thinking to get information about the whereabouts of other humans. But when the cyborg doctor on Rorik's ship runs tests on Laina, a genetic anomaly in her hand raises questions and he suddenly wonders if Laina might hold the key to the survival of the cyborg race. Can he learn to trust and love his sworn enemy if it means he might save his people?
Last week we left off with Rorik having knocked Laina out with his phaser and he's brought her on board the cyborg ship the Orion and taken her to the sick bay. She's just come around from being knocked out.
Out of the frying pan and into the fire as her mother used to say. Laina’s brain pounded fiercely against the insides of her skull. What the hell had happened after she fell out of the air duct? She’d been running…somewhere and then blinding pain and nothing.
“What did you do to me?” she demanded, but to her shame she sounded as breathless and frightened as she felt. The blond cyborg studied her, the chilly depths of his electric blue gaze taking in every inch of her to the point that she was beginning to almost feel a physical touch on her body.“I stunned you. You fell and hit your head."
