The Girls From Alcyone II: The Gilded Age
For those not familiar with TGfA, here's the premise in a nutshell: Taken from her home as a young girl, Sigrid Novak is one of a select and highly trained group of genetically (and bionically) enhanced girls. Both hunted and coveted (as a military asset and scientific curiosity), Sigrid and her friends have fled fled the Federation to make a new life for themselves on a secret and distant planet (a secret that, perhaps, won't stay secret for long).
This Week: Sigrid gets dressed (yes - it's that exciting!). Next week, Suko takes a phone message.
Taking care not to wake Suko, Sigrid rose from the bed, stretched, and shuffled across the floor of her small captain's quarters. She dressed quickly, pulling on the stretchy one-piece uniform. Gone, were the red-markings of Kimura, replaced by what had become the colors of New Alcyone. All the girls' uniforms bore the white and magenta trimmings, so striking on the inky-black fabric.
Her new boots were another matter; Sigrid couldn't help but laugh as she pulled them on. She would definitely have to talk to Karen. Each new pair the girl procured for her seemed to sport even higher heels than the pair before, as if Karen was determined to keep adding height to Sigrid's diminutive stature.
