The Girls From Alcyone II: Vengeance
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 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: Uh, oh. Looks like Sigrid's gone and gotten herself into another sticky situation. Will she ever learn? (Next week - Sigrid, Suko and Leta hit the shops and clubs of Crucis for a girls night out).
Sigrid sat up, and instantly regretted it. The confines of the grey cell swam in and out of focus. Grey permacrete walls, grey floor—if grey could be a smell it would perfectly describe the odor.
Mercifully all of her internal systems were functioning and worked to stabilize her, easing the vertigo and the pounding she felt between her ears. She reached back with a hand, feeling about the back of her head. At least the bleeding had stopped. The nano swarms had clearly been busy, working to cauterize the large gash. Sigrid struggled to remember; the terrible explosion, the shower of debris, the chunk of permacrete that had very nearly taken her head clean off.
Clearly, she'd been lucky. Lucky to be alive, at least.
But where in the blazes was she—and who was this woman…?
"You…!" Sigrid said.
