Family is everything.
Government experiment, Chris Fletcher isn't quite certain of her own existence. Suffering from memory loss, she cannot decide what is real and what is only part of her own damaged brain. In the process of discovering the reality of herself, she will come to understand the essence of not only her but her husband and the child she has come to love as her own. She will finally be able to confront the man who created her--with devastating consequences.
“She’s awake,” Daniels said. “I want to put her back under and take her to the hospital.”
I could see Jonas nod, looking over the doc’s shoulder. Looking straight at me.
Daniels continued. “But first, I want you to talk to her. She’s a little…” he paused, thinking of the right word.
He came up with, “Freaked.”
“Is she okay?” Jonas asked.
Daniels shook his head. “She’s sick,” he said. “We need to do this as quickly as possible, but I need you to calm her down. If her adrenaline is too high, she runs the risk of waking during the surgery. You
know her body doesn’t react well to anesthesia.”
Jonas nodded and gave the doc’s shoulder a squeeze, then the man known as Michael Daniels left the room, leaving the lizard man and myself alone.
I hunkered in the bed.
He came to my side and sat much as Daniels had done. “How’re you feeling?”
I shook my head. I didn’t know what to say.
“I’m sorry about all this,” he said, his voice calm.
“But it’s necessary.” He looked away then back at me. “I can’t let you die.”
“Haven’t I died before?” I asked.
He looked at me strangely.
“I mean, if I’m her, haven’t I died before?”
He paused then said, “Twice.”
