This is gold.Mack had spent a long time in Sector 13, a place well known to breed virulent conspiracy theories. Mack believed them all. There'd been odd things about this girl's behavior, and her story, but he hadn't put two and two together until this latest statement. A cold terror swept over him.
He knew what she was.
He'd heard the rumors. The stories the rambling old man on the corner told to the kids. But he'd thought he'd heard enough to know one on sight. Clearly this was a disguise of some sort.
The super strength.
Being experimented on by her 'uncle' in a locked basement, without ever garnering even the slightest basics of interaction.
Didn't see herself as a person.
And now this.
The girl known as Eisen was a killer robot. And only Mack knew.
He couldn't spill the beans right here, in front of her. Who knew what she'd do once she was exposed. Go into berserker mode, probably. He'd heard about that. They all did that. But he knew he'd have to tell someone when he got the chance. Probably Axel or King, he figured. They'd probably heard the stories too.
He surreptitiously sidled away from the group with the robot girl.
