"Just like on this model, I will use a laser to alter the tissues of your brain, and you won't need medication anymore, " the doctor said.

"Will I have a scar on my head?"

"The laser only affects brain tissue, your scalp and skull will be unaffected."

Only an hour passed since Danny arrived in the doctor's office, a compulsive, nervous wreck. A new carefree, light hearted Danny made his way back to work. This time he took the transit tube. Danny enjoyed the ride. He smiled at the kid in front of him, who smeared some sticky substance on the glass. Danny found a certain art in it.

The operation worked much better than those lousy pills ever had. Danny did not feel the least bit concerned about the bathroom sink running, or the state of his clean laundry.

Nothing bothered him anymore.

The team leader smiled to see Danny back the same day. "You look relaxed, Danny."

"I've never felt better, " Danny Rogers said. He handed the team leader his medical paperwork. The supervisor studied it for a moment and looked Danny's head over.

"Wow. You seem like a whole new man. I should get my head looked at, work has been getting under my skin lately, " the team leader replied.

Danny gave him a perplexed expression.

"Great, Doc, " said Val with an unamused expression, "I guess I'll be back on the job in no time."

Holden Daniels paced the tiny cell, maneuvering so that his sour scowl continually faced the Colonial Security Force officer on duty. He was a mechanical engineer, not a social butterfly. That rat Nielsen always got on his back, if he had just left the hovering and criticizing to management, Holden would not have jammed a screwdriver into the man's torso three times.

The colonial starship had departed from Earth years ago, and Daniels had no idea how he would make it until he could put his feet on soil again.

Luck had held back in Hartford when he pushed Cooper, his former coworker in front of the commuter train after second shift. Holden's luck waivered only slightly when he smashed Turner's nose into pudding, which landed him in anger management training. Now Holden Daniels suspected his luck had run out completely.
