Zez’s ability to lock time makes her the ideal partner for a man who holds her past against her.
Zez joins the Citadel at age eleven, with a colourful history behind her. Her skills grow with every year, and in a decade, her ability to stop time in a confined area draws the attention of the Sector Guard.
Immune is paired with the young woman with the dark past, and he sets his mind to keep her under control and save the innocents she might sweep away with her actions.
Somewhere in the mire of distrust, a partnership is formed. The partnership has the potential to grow into something else, but resentments and accusations will slow the development.
Instead of a Citadel vessel, a Sector Guard ship was sitting on the launch dock. A shadowy figure stepped into the open expanse of the cargo ramp. “Specialist Zez?”
She stepped forward. “That is me.”
A man in shades of dark purple emerged from the shadows. “I am Immune.”
“I beg your pardon?”
“My Sector Guard call sign. I am Immune to exterior influences.”
“Oh. Right. Well, I am just Zez.” She stepped forward. “May I come aboard?”
“Please. We have gotten a mission that requires your services.”
She blinked. “Really?”
“Yes. You can selectively freeze time?”
“Then come on. There are some issues that need your attention.”
She stepped onto the hatch, and it started to rise the moment she touched it. She hopped inward and stowed her bag in a cargo compartment.
Immune went to the command deck, and she followed him, settling into her seat for takeoff.
“Your folder is in the data screen in front of you. You might need to read up on the situation I am flying you into.”
She leaned forward and took the thin, transparent screen, using her thumbprint to activate it, and from there, she spent two hours going through the details of the riots that she was going to walk into the middle of.
