Tamarax was acting strange. Well… stranger than usual. Her sharp black nails punched numbers into her alien calculator as she went back and forth down the long corridor. It was like she was on a treasure hunt and her calculator was the map.

KC2203 followed meekly behind her in his green button-up jacket and tight black pants. Apparently a jacket with tight pants was the new fashion so that was exactly what Tamarax made him wear. He was not very well-liked by Tamarax's personnel seeing as she had basically put him on a pedestal to be admired. Her henchmen did not know what she did to the poor guy behind the scenes, they were too ignorant. It was strange how much of an interest Tamarax had in her slave, and yet she had never bothered to give him a proper name.

One of her expendable assistants stood to one side and watched her go back and forth like a madwoman. It's finally happened. He thought. She's lost her mind. The fact was that Tamarax had lost her mind long ago, but she was just very good at hiding her true insane self.

Tamarax stopped abruptly and stared at her calculator and then the floor. A sadistic smile spread across her face showing her rotten fangs. Her smile vanished for a moment when she examined the numbers again on her calculator. Then she took one step backward and smiled again.

"Vel, " she glanced at her assistant, "can you come over here?"

Her assistant hesitantly walked over. The job of working for Tamarax was very dangerous, but he needed the credits. Tamarax's workers were from all over the Milky Way. She worked alongside pirates and terrorists, bought many slaves and hired alien

ation for it, but it just got worse every time she did something bad in front of him. It would have been easy for her to just kill him and get a new slave, yet she didn't want to do that. In spite of everything, she had feelings for him. It was an unhealthy to have a relationship based on one partner having all the control. Unfortunately Tamarax didn't know how to have any other kind. It was not as if KC2203 could complain. After all, she had 'saved' him from being sent to the deep space mines.

The blue boy stood there like a deer in the headlights. He was worried that she would go for him next. Tamarax took her nail out of Vel's head and let his body drop.

"Sorry sweetie." She said as sincerely as she could. "It's just impulse."

KC2203 nodded in understanding, but avoided eye contact. He saw no way out of his hellish life. All clones feared the USM as much as they feared their own masters. The USM did not recognize them as people and therefore weren't afraid to shoot them conflicts. Slave clones only trusted their siblings and KC2203 was alone, so he trusted no one.
