"Does it really matter?" Bryce said and took hold of my waist.

He pressed me hard against his chest, to the point I could not move. His lips crashed back on to mine. His hold was suffocating, my heart was beating uncontrollably. I could not think properly, as butterfly feeling filled my stomach and chaotic thoughts about his sudden body heat filled my mind. There was a complete chaos inside of me, a turmoil of emotions mushed up together, making me so confused, as I could not make up my mind about my next move. His kiss was still gentle, but the hold on me was so strong, like he did not want to let me go, ever. I needed some air as my lungs and heart was denied of oxygen. Finally, after some struggling, my hands got free and I pushed his face away from mine to, at least, get some air. His eyes locked with mine, his - full with emotion, mine - the same, but I had no clear understanding of what he really felt.

"B... Bryce! This is not funny! Stop!" I said quietly, still breathing hard.

He did not reply, in turn, he tightened his grib, though, there was not even atomic space left between us.

"Bryce! Let go of me! You are hurting me!" I said in much stronger tone.

He let go of me, but did not back off. His eyes boring into mine, deep into my soul. That feeling seemed to be familiar, but I could not remember, where I have experienced it.

"What is the meaning of this, Bryce? Why are you doing this to me? I did not ask for it, I am not asking that kind of services from you."

"I am doing it, because I want to. I want to be with you. There is something I feel, I don't know what it is or what it means, but.... I feel a desperate need to be close to you, to .... kiss you...." he trailed off.

His huge palms come back to my face, cupping it gently and looking into me. I close my eyes, as tears start to appear in them, just in time, before he has a chance to see them. Before he lays another kiss on me, I stop him.

"Bryce, this is not right, this cannot happen."

There is a moment of silence. I take a deep breath and feel my lip quiver slightly of the conflicting emotions I am having.

"There are more important things right now. What is wrong with your body temperature? Why is it so high? Is it some side effect of your power shortage? What is it?"

"I don't know. Does it bother you?"

"Yeah, it does. Because I don't know if it's bad or good for you. What if something happens to you because of it. It scares me, Bryce. I don't know, what to do." Few tears finally escape, as I can no longer hold in my emotions. "I will call CyRo! This is too much for me. I want to know answers."

I leave Bryce standing and walk to my table next to my bed. I pick up my ring, put an connecting earring and I am ready to call. As I have found the contact number that's needed, I feel my wrists grabbed.

"Bryce! What are you doing! Let go!"

"Don't do it or else...."

"I have to! Let go of my hands, now!"

I feel his grip tighten and I can no longer hold the ring in my fingers. It slips through them and falls on the floor, rolling to the far end of the room. His hold is still strong, almost painful.

"Ahh! It hurts! Bryce! Bryce! It hurts! Let go of me." a whimper leaves my mouth.

He releases my wrists and I immediately turn around to face him. His face, his eyes... There is an angry look painted on his features.

"Don't do anything stupid, Kyra." he says calmly, but I can feel a threat in his voice.

A long forgotten emotion appeared in me. Fear. All new again. Like it was never gone.

"Don't come near me!" I backed away a little bit from his huge form. "What's wrong with you? Tell me! I want to know! And don't lie this time! I know you are infected, Bryce!"

"Oh, you know! So, there is no point to hide it anymore. ... Yes, I am infected. I have been from the very start, from the very first moment, I laid my eyes on you. And you know what? And I felt this feeling, that grew stronger and stronger ev

n my heavy sobs.

"Please! Is somebody there? I... I n..need help. Quickly. My robot is attacking me. He ... he is going to kill me. Please, quickly, get the help. I am on Amberstone avenue 40, apartment 156. Please, come as quick as possible."

Before I could finish I heard Bryce yell at me.

"Don't you dare to call them Kyra! Believe me, you don't want to do it."

Hearing his words my hands started to tremble even more and I lost a ring from my weak grip. It fell right into the sink and dropped in the pipes inside. It was gone. Oh no.... I have no way of escape now.


After like ten minutes I heard somebody on the door outside. Few voices could be heard, but I could not distinguish any word. For these ten minutes Bryce was quiet, he did not say anything nor did anything to the door separating us. The whole time, I was sitting in the corner sobbing uncontrollably.

A knock on my bathroom door. Is it Bryce? Oh no... Please leave me alone....

"Hello, is somebody there? Ms? Are you there?" an unknown man's voice could be heard.

I slowly stumbled towards the door, still extremely cautious.

"Wh... who is there?"

"It a rescuing team you called - we suppose. Your android is removed from here. You are safe to come out."

Slowly I unlocked the bathroom and peaked through the gap. I saw a man in dark heavy west, helmet and a gun in his hands.

"Ms, come out. You are safe. Come." he said in a calm voice.

"Where is... is he? My android?"

"Don't worry about him. My team have taken him back to CyRo."

"What did you do to him? Is he hurt?"

I could not understand myself, why I asked such questions. Like I cared about him. He almost raped me and hurt me badly. But still I wanted to know, what happened to him. I cared about Bryce and I cannot change my feelings on the spot just like that.

"Hmmm.... He is alright actually. He came with us willingly, so we did not harm him or did any damage, if that is what you are worrying about, Ms. But.... did he really attack you? Don't get me wrong, you look like he did, but he seemed very peaceful, when we came here. He did not show any signs of aggression or anything else in that matter."

A fresh stream of tears appeared. I did not say anything else to this man about the incident.

"Could I call somebody? My ring is gone and I want to contact my father."

"First you should visit a doctor. Are you hurt?"

"No. I am fine. I just need to contact my dad."

"Ok, ok. Here."

He gave me his device to call my dad. I told him what happened and he said, he will come and pick me up as fast as he can. I wanted to see him badly.

My dad.
