In the cryo-tubeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦..
The memories consumed her mind, the criminal life and the leisure life.
It was enough to keep her mind awake, to drive the horrors of the once prisoners life at bay. But, it never works; the memories flooded her mind as she slept. Even consumed her and driven her to the point of hate. Hate for the humans and for everything they stood for, but here she is in one of their ships, in space ironic no? She was there not for one reason or another. She was there, because someone took her from all that.
Still asleep, her breathing quickened, the hands curled in a tight fist, almost causing the almost tough skin to break. Shadow remembered the electricity flowing through her body. While in the prisoned life, they caught her once escaping and for punishment, well you can use your imagination.
The brows knitted in pain, tightening them as one would when trying to concentrate on something really hard, something she knew would never leave. The memories, the pain and horror she went through with Wayland from whom she was stealing from and here they are around her. Ticking her off even more, the thoughts of wanting to rip their heads off almost took over.
Shadow did her thing, slipped in and out before she would get caught. A client wanted her to get information from wayland enterprises. Where she was captured and was tortured for what she knew and who sent her. She laughed at them; a pure and simple laughter filled the room they locked her in. Laughter of the insane, but she was sane, purely sane. Just wanted them nervous so they can make a mistake and she would escape.
The man; was something else. When she attacked Kidd; from the nightmares of being tortures; thinking it was them coming back. Kidd kept his ground until he was under her waiting for his blade to be driven up to his brain, via his mouth. Kidd didn't fight back, but defended himself.
Shadow using Sinanju (a martial arts) a style that is more of a fluid movement; striking fast and hard causing those she fights against, rethink on their actions. Days, weeks went by before Shadow understood that Kidd an Alpha draconis commander; was the rescuer, not the inhibiter that caused those years of pain.
Kidd; asked her to help him to help with the unit and the thinning of xenomorphs; she agreed under a few stipulations; never ask how she got the weapons; never ask her about how the money came to be. Or her personal life, what she does wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go against Alpha Draconis He agreed with a smile on his lips, causing her brow to arch asking him if he heard her correctly. With that same grin and that scent of truth, repeated his answer with another nod his head.
Being in the container (cryo) wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t new for her it was rather old and tedious Shadow always thought. Why stay some where, where you can die rather fast, but it was required even though she kept insisting that it as needless.
A jumble of the computerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s speech squawked around her, in the room An annoying noise slowly woke her from the cryo-tube, causing her to be aware of her surroundingsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
To the present; her head tilted, as the memories thrusting towards the back, her mind. The features twisted in that of anger, which would dare wake her from this slumber of pleasantries, it was getting to the good point the point of her causing death and mayhem on the wicked.
Shadow always will be not a low life scum.Ã¢â‚¬Â The voice of an old friend rang in her mind, with that memory years before, before the capture and torture. "I am not" She would respond, "I am something more" but she never thought of her as anything but a simple person trying to get through life and have fun with it
Shadow didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like the idea of having those things on board, she wanted them off and would try to do anything for that to happen, even shoving them out of an air lock.
Snake eyes; who is a member of Alpha Draconis at the same time; helped Shadow with a mission that Kidd requested. Snake had to stab her in the shoulder, but to make matterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s worse he rescued her even though it cost him his voice.
Nikkie was snakeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s younger sister, to make up for the help and rescue. So Shadow saved NikkieÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s life moments before her car was totaled by a drunk driver causing the two kids to be sent to an orphanage, Snake being over 18, he adopted Nikkie as his sister. (A small history of the two.)
So, it was normal for Shadow to walk away for almost 6 years. Shadow was out in the world, wondering how to get back in touch with the criminals and have fun with what she likes... hiding from merc's.
Ellesa finding Shadow out, the girl wouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t go back to Alpha Draconis, to many rules and back stabbings. If she anted to stab, she would have gone and done for the shear pleasure and enjoyment of it (that is if someone attacked her). After talking to Ellesa and finding out that Ellesa and Kidd knew each other, the woman didn't go back.
But once kidd requested, nay put a bounty on Shadow that is when she went to him, for the removal of the bounty. Only when she agreed t to help him and his unit out once again, would he then remove it.
Shadow was; what kidd called a shadow
Shadow was awake and annoyed as anyone can believe. Shadow growled as the door thrust open, caused by the force of her hand breaking off the hinges.
The ship shuttered again, causing her to land on the hard metal ground like she was thrown on the ground as a child would a used toy.
The fingers dragged on the metal floor, the lips of her mouth pealed back in disgust as she felt as if she was thrown in a cell. Slowly, picking herself up off the ground, the female blinked a few times, push the dizzy spells from her mind, the eyes slowly focussed before she would do anything.
snapping her bones as she rolled her shoulders slowly popping the shoulder's back in to place. Sitting up she rolled her head in a small circle, cracking the bones back in to alignment. Growling as the ship wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t feeling like it was floating and the engines that once hummed was now silent. She lifted her body from the ground, after being thrown. She shook her head, pushing the stars from her mind and eyes, as she would swear they were there. Her hands pressed the hard ground as to pick herself up off the ground shaking her head. Something was wrong, the ship wasn't moving. She looked up, & saw the walls were a twisted mess of wreckage. Sunlight blared in through the gaping holes in the ship's hull, hitting her sensitive eyes causing her to wince and hiss in soft pain.
The hand lifted as she stood there, with a soft sigh of anger, the eyes closed and the goggles from her forehead over her overly sky blue eyes.
Shadow, walked outside by the hole by her head interesting no place to get out of, right there where a door should not be.
She watched as wounded men trickled out from amongst the wreckage, she helping them out before they collapsed and laid them on the ground or sat them down. Helping the ones, with the sever injuries, before going to the lesser sort.
When everyone was outside the crashed ship....
Ã¢â‚¬ÂQuite interestingÃ¢â‚¬Â Shadow said with an uneven voice. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The ground is semi-unstable and I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like it.Ã¢â‚¬Â She finished using her own feelings to judge the place. Pure and simple, she felt something was wrong and took an educated guess, while she leaned against the tree, her arms crossed, one foot planted on the ground, before the other lifted and planted on the trunk of the tree that she leaned on. In truth, Shadow didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like this feeling or how this place felt. Intuition, that was what it was, her mind felt like a light bulb going off as she remembered the word.
