"Commander, we meet again." Her voice was cold, taunting. He had figured out in some of his more lucid moments that not responding to her seemed to upset and frustrate her, so he remained silent. She circled around to his right and leaned down so that he could see her merciless face. "You may have noticed that we are not in familiar surroundings, Commander. I have something new planned for you today." Something in her hand reflected the light in the room. It took Aiden a moment to realize that it was a sharp looking curved blade. Some kind of medical instrument, he thought. He swallowed hard and tried not to imagine what she planned to use it for. "I see fear in your eyes, Commander. That is good. It is a place to start, at least." She disappeared from his view again, and he expected her to continue with her sneers, but there was only silence. He quickly lost track of where she was. It was then that he felt the slight pressure of a hand on the exposed skin of his back. It was almost immediately followed by intense pain as the knife made its first slice into his skin. *** Upon returning from a routine flight mission, Aiden Hunt is captured by a Prefect who wants revenge for the deaths of her sons.
