Author: Karri Thompson

Pub. Date: June 30, 2014
I was born more than a thousand years ago.
Put into a cryogenic tube at age seventeen, forgotten during a holocaust that decimated the world, I've finally been awakened to a more serene and peaceful future.
But things at the hospital are new and strange. And itâs starting to scare me.
Everyone is young. Everyone is banded and tracked. And everyone is keeping secrets.
The cute geneticist Michael Bennett might be the only good thing in this crazy new world where âlife is preciousâ but no one seems free to live it. The problem is, I donât think heâs being totally honest with me, either.
When Iâm told only I can save the human race from extinction, itâs clear my freeze didnât avoid a dreadful fate. It only delayed the horrorâ¦
Michael took a seat on the edge of my bed, rocking me toward him. When the side of my thigh met his knee, my heart rate doubled, and I drew in a deep breath.
âBefore you were awakened I spent hours at your bedside imaging what you were like, how your voice would sound, how you looked when you smiled. When your red lips pulsed, when your chest heaved, and you took your first breath, I kept my emotions in check. But now, now that youâve âawakened,â everything is different. I canât sleep. I canât stop thinking about you.â
I ignored the pain and tilted closer until the space between our faces was less than a foot. My heart, my mind, my soulâeverything yearned for his affection at that moment.
âI feel the same way, too.â
I closed my eyes, wanting this handsome, earnest guy to take me into his arms and tell me heâd make them let me go. My lungs expanded with his warm breath and spicy scent. When his lips met mine, every atom in my body danced, urging me to pull him closer and tighten my grip upon his back.
His kissing became more fiery and I reacted by kissing him harder. It wasnât until his mouth moved to my neck, that I came to my senses and drew away.
âNot yet,â I said, scooting away.
âI know,â he said between breaths, rising from the bed. His wiped his forehead with the sleeve of his uniform and returned to the chair. âI canâtâ¦we canât. We can neverâ¦,â he said abruptly. âItâs against protocol. I-I should go.â
