Nicko slapped the blaring of his alarm clock off. Hadn't he just gotten to bed? He looked at the clock. 7:00, it was time to get up. He groaned as he rolled out of bed. That had been happening over the past week. He had absolutely no trouble falling asleep, but he'd wake up feeling like he'd gotten no sleep at all.
Xena stared at the computer screen in front of her, and sighed. She was a bit exasperated with this new schedule of hers, but she could make due. She had recently brought the test subject in and placed a small tracking chip in his left forearm. It wasn't easy making it seem like nothing had happened, but she did pretty well. This was her first trial run, and it was already off to a good start. She looked at her watch and smiled. It was 7 o'clock. It was time for her to head to the briefing office and talk to her boss, then head back down to Earth and keep an eye on her subject.
The screens in front of Xena continued to run as she left the room amd headed down the brightly lit corridor. She felt confident in this, and that her boss would continue to fund this project of hers. She stepped onto a brightly lit platform that descended to the first floor. She took a deep breath as she walked forward, and turned right. This was his office....and today was the biggest day in her life. This could make, or break her future. She placed her hand on the door handle and turned. Inside sat a male of her species. His skin radiating a bright blue and yellow. She could tell he was happy, by the energy radiating off him.
"I know what you're going to ask." he said, clasping his hands together. He face looked straight and serious. "I have watched you grow into a talented scientist, and by your progress on this project; you will be fully funded by me." Xena give him a wide smile. "Thank you so much! I promise I wont let you down!" He nodded and gave her a curt salute. "Noe get back on the field missy."
Xena turned away from him and gave herself a quick victory pump and made her way out of the building. She had to start her recordings of the subject.
In no time at all, Xena was on planet Earth. Her blue jogging outfit seemingly blending in with the morning crowds. Her subject was seventeen years old, the same age as her younger sister. She took a deep breath and held it for a moment. She missed her sister, now that work had taken most of her time. She jogged her way toward the school and stood outside. Now was the fun part, waiting.
Her protocol made it where her actions were very limited. She had to maintain distance while keeping an eye on her subject.
(Would it be okay if I added in her younger sister as a character?)
Xena watched as her test subject got out of the car. So far, everything seemed to go perfect. He wasn't showing any signs that the chip was bothering him, so that was good. As he headed inside, she was thinking about how she would be able to closely moniter the subject; then an idea popped into her mind. It was risky, but it could work. She would have to talk everything over with her boss when they were doing the extraction tonight.
Xena tapped on her watch and sighed. She was going to have to talk about this plan to her boss sooner than she anticipated. She pulled a cellphone out of her pocket and dialed his number. "Hello." she said, her tone urgent amd serious. "I need to talk to Doctor Salvani. It's about Experiment AX-241." The person on the other end got eerily quite and agreed to transfer her over. She stood still for a moment, and decided to make her way away from the school.
"What is it?" Dr. Salvani said, his voice slightly annoyed. Xena was taken aback for a minute, but proceeded to explain her plan, and why she thought it might work. He took a deep breath, and proceeded to speak. "Fine, but know that whatever happens it's on you. Not the company, not me; but you."
Xena stood there for a moment in complete silence. Should she go and brief her sister now, or should she wait?
Nicko refrained from snapping at one of his friends for acting stupid. He had been like this for awhile. He blamed the lack of sleep.
Science class was next. Nicko actually almost fell asleep. He never fell asleep, especially at science class.
He decided he would finally go to the doctor about this. He had tried taking pills that would help him get a deep sleep, but nothing was working.
As she stood for a moment, her watch started to beep. It showed there was a spike in the subjects heart-rate. Xena shrugged it off, and made a mental note to chart his behavior patterns amd vital signs when she got to the lab. For now, she was going to leave Earth and try to brief her younger sibling. This was going to he the most interesting project she had done by far; but it was also the project that held the most complications.
