I assume it’s a trap. The escape pod that rockets across the sky is a Solcrue vessel. My scanners tell me the occupant is human. Savage warned me to be careful on our private channel, but my programming won’t listen. There’s a human in need of help.
Everything I do is at maximum throttle. I race through the forest to the crash site only to discover I’m too late. Solcrue have found and captured the escapee. She’s in bad shape yet still stuns me into a full stop. The female fights hard, relentlessly…with everything she has.
I’m overheating. I don’t think it’s because of the run this time. I’ve finally found someone else like me.
I thought with the alien Solcrue distracted by hunting CyberTitans that I had a chance of escaping the warship I was forced to serve on. But I’m not a pilot. When Solcrue shot at me, the pod’s autopilot failed. Now I’m stuck on a mostly deserted planet with a blazing headache from the crash, cyborgs, and Solcrue, none of which I like. It doesn’t take long for the Solcrue to find me.
As they escort me off toward the outpost, I notice a faint red light in the forest. A pair of glowing eyes of the same color peek through leaves. When the CyberTitan straightens, I get a glimpse of his powerful, naked structure. A wisp of smoke curls up at his feet, and he darts off into the shadows.
Titans are more powerful than any other creature in the galaxy. They have always terrified me. I want to tell the Solcrue that a Titan circles the camp because I know it will mean a lesser punishment for my disobedience. Then I hear the last words of my friend in the back of my mind. “They’re built to protect us first, fight for us if necessary. CyberTitans can’t hurt you, and they won’t want to. They’re more human than any Solcrue.”
I don’t want to serve the Solcrue again. I want to live my own life. I hope the Titan comes back for me.
