Is that last bit accurate, Archie?”“Yeah, according to his weigh-in this morning.” “And it has…turquoise eyes?” The doctor gave Archie a funny look. “What on earth for?”Archie shrugged.“Just to see if it would take. You should have a look—Dr. Zephon’s pretty proud of himself. KL-62 is the only one of his birth group to have that color eyes.”“Dr. Zephon did this one?” the young doctor gasped, staring at the Monitoring Officer. Archie grinned crookedly. “Yep. Everybody says KL-62’s the masterpiece.”“Wow,” the doctor gasped.

He’s the complete package.”“So…” the doctor rapidly tapped the edge of his screen. “It has no need to shave face or body…and it would demonstrate the height of mental perfection as well as physical exceptionalism.”“Theoretically,” Archie shrugged. “He doesn’t talk much.”“What, haven’t you looked at the results of his learning regimes?” the doctor frowned. Archie snorted.“Yeah—if I’m trying to put myself to sleep.”“Can you pull them up so I can see?”“Doctor, he’s right there,” Archie gestured. “Why don’t you just ask him a couple questions—you’ll find out faster.” Clearing his throat, the doctor stepped closer to the plexiglass of the cell, then stopped. “You.

Then, like liquid obsidian, he rose slowly to his feet, and straightened to his full, towering height. Lean and muscular, he stepped soundlessly toward the plexiglass, settled his feet…And lifted his stunning eyes to the doctor’s.“Good lord,” the doctor breathed. “It’s magnificent.” read more
