Frowning, she lifted her head and turned to stare at the ship’s console. It was the message alert annoying the shit out of her, she realized with more than a touch of irritation.Struggling to tune the noise out, she returned her attention to the game and finally made her move.

For a few moments she hovered over her decision and finally set the piece down and stood up. “Don’t touch anything until I get back!” she said. “One of you cheated last time!”Jared and Kane exchanged a long look.“We were not programmed to cheat,” Jared responded.“You’re sure Pops didn’t tinker with your programming?” Chloe threw back at him. “Because that move looked a lot like something he would’ve done.”“Pops cheated?” Kane asked blankly.Chloe turned and grinned at the two cyborgs as she reached the console and punched the button to silence the alert buzzer.

“Don’t tell me! He told you it was a new rule, right?”Jared and Kane shared a glance.“It was not?” Kane asked.Chloe chuckled. “I knew it was you, Kane!”His olive complexion darkened with a mixture of discomfort and anger—well, simulated, she reminded herself. She shook her head at herself. What did it matter, really? If they seemed real enough that she had to keep reminding herself that they weren’t, then why do it?Because she worried, that was why.It had been different when her father was alive. Working as deep space salvagers, they spent a lot of time in space, just the two of them after her father’s last two crewmembers quit.

As her father often said, they kept each other sane. The loneliness of spending weeks or months in space without seeing another soul could fuck up a person’s head if they didn’t have someone to interact with.She didn’t know what she would’ve done if they hadn’t picked up the two cyborgs, Jared and Kane, on Xeno-12. They’d been seriously fucked up at the time, horribly! Her father had been more inclined to leave them than to gather them up with the other salvage but, as it turned out, the cyborgs were the only thing they’d picked up that were worth anything.

Most of what they’d collected had been so degraded by the frigid temperatures they’d had to sell it for scrap and they’d been damned lucky to get anything for it.Jared and Kane—well, they’d ‘recovered’ amazingly enough—so well it was impossible to tell, looking at them now, that they’d been so damaged that they’d looked downright nightmarish. Even before they’d fully recovered, they’d proven they could pull their own weight as crewmembers. Theywere cyborgs, designed as soldiers, which meant they weren’t much for conversation but then again the two crewmembers they’d replaced hadn’t been either.Truthfully, they were way better company than the two jerk-offs they’d replaced, worth their weight in platinum, especially after her father had died.

She’d had reason to be grateful she’d talked her father out of selling them for scrap!Shaking her thoughts before she could get caught up in her grief over her father, she turned her attention to the computer and pulled up the incoming message that had set off the alert. She’d been expecting junk mail since she didn’t know anybody who would actually send her a personal message. She skimmed through the message the computer pulled up skeptically and with very little interest. The alert at the top caught her attention, however.
