Craig ST Posted February 3, 2014 Share Posted February 3, 2014 Natalias eyes fluttered open. The light above her was soft and low, so as to avoid hurting the eyes and her vision was noticeably free of the usual AROs. She breathed in and out, getting used to the rhythm of her new lungs. Resleeving was always a process. After the hour it took for the nanites of the Ego Bridge to rewrite the brain of her new morph there was the adjustment period. Before she had regained consciousness, the medtechs had moved Natalia to a private recovery room, where she could handle the initial readjustment at her own pace.,,With a blink of her eyes, her mesh inserts clicked back on. Welcome back Natalia. Everything is status green. The voice of Erika, her Muse said softly in her head. Fantastic, Natalia said in a hoarse whisper, more to herself than to Erika. She groaned as she sat up, rolled her shoulders and cracked her neck. Reserving a Morph is the way to go if you want to make sure no other ego (and their bad habits) has sleeved into it but Natalia felt like shed been lying in bed for a week.,, Standing, Natalia did a few simple stretching exercises to loosen up her muscles. Sleeving into a new Morph was always a strange and stressful experience But the Fury morph was Natalias favorite and this specific one had been hers for years. She adjusted quickly to the nuance of the Morph, and then prepared herself for the hardest part of resleeving; looking in the mirror. While logically she knew this body, this face was hers; the reality was that shes been sleeved into a male soldier pod for the last month working a contract to protect an Autonomist mining interest against Jovian aggression.,,Natalia stepped in front of the mirror and took a long look at the face in front of her. She closed her eyes and tried to reconcile that face with her own self-image. She opened her eyes again. After an hour of reinforcing her self-image and performing a series of physical exercises to make sure her Morph would respond the way it should, Natalia finally left the resleeving center.,,Natalias preferred resleeving center was just inside the border of the northern bazaar of Extropia. Extropia was a huge beehive style station built inside a massive Asteroid of the Main Belt that housed somewhere around ten million people. There were two ports, one at each pole of the asteroid and its slow spin gave it a gravity that was only around 2% of earths. From the center it only took Natalia 5 minutes to get to her tiny berth-like apartment. She quickly made her way down the twisting, narrow corridor to the Main Drag, a mammoth shaft that traveled from one port to the other, straight through the entire station and from there into her own neighborhood. Natalia? Her Muse queried as they came closer to her unit. I am reading irregularities in the security protocols of home base. It appears someone has broken in. Instructions?
