TMM 32TMM 32 I followed behind the short fox down various hallways, still incredibly curious. Eventually when we came to an elevator, I asked "Are you native to Earth, or did you come from another planet?" "Do you really want to know?" "Yes, I'm curious." He chuckled a little "I read your book." "Wait-wha-huh? How? I only shared it with friends." "Then I was right, you forgot all about me." "I guess I did, enlighten me." "We met at the library four years ago, you gave me a copy of your unpublished book and made me swear not to share it. I was absolutely enthralled from page one. It wasn't the most professional work, but it sounded amazingly well thought out. I tried contacting you countless times, but never could, then years later you show up right in my lap." "But
what? I've never seen a Vulprenian in real life before all this happened." "I was human back then. The cr

I should just tell this in present tense, it'll be easier for me. I started running as fast as I could, chasing after the sound of thrusters. I knew the ship had to be just ahead. I just kept running and running. By time I got to the clearing, it was already airborne, and they must not have seen me signaling, as they kept on going. I grumbled, partly in dismay, partly in self hatred that I managed to forget my communications equipment onboard, even my tracking device. It would be hours before they realized I was missing. I sat down on a rock and sighed, waiting for them to return. I waited for
IdentityIdentity"You keep staring out the window like that they'll think you malfunctioned again.""Huh, what?" I was snapped out of my daydreaming by Tabitha, one of the few security personnel who really understood my mental struggle. "You were thinking about it again, weren't you Tanya?" "I can't help it. It's a logic loop that refuses to die." She walked up and placed a hand on my shoulder. I could feel the much colder surface of her alloy skin on my simulated living tissue, and it only made my thoughts redouble. "Tan. It doesn't matter, you're immortal now, let the past go." "I just can't. There's every possibility that the real Tanya died down there when her brain was scanned, and I'm just a robot programmed to emulate her." "Well
technically that's exactly what happened." "You're not helping." She giggled and replied "Look, we'll be on a new homeworld soon enough, and you'll

TMM 31TMM 31I'm not sure how much time passed. Minutes, hours, days. The blackness around me was absolute and the silence was deafening. I eventually saw a shaft of light. I had to clench my eyes shut tight as it nearly blinded me.Somebody came into the room hastily and put a new lightbulb in. There was a weak green glow that came with them. As soon as the light came back I caught sight of them. It was what looked like just a child, a little girl, a vixen. The small fox saw me looking at her and quickly recoiled, retreating back to the door before leaving again without a word.I shook my head "No, it couldn't be a vulpren." But, the thought was planted, and that entity, whatever was hiding in my head, it's words echoed "Remember your novel, it may save your life."I was still trapped in thought as the door opened once more. I heard heavy footsteps before the bed I was on shifted, tilting up, bringing me somewhat into a standing position and eye to eye with a man in a black suit. He sneered
