Chapter 16


The doorbell rang. Audrea rolled over. 9 AM. She was still wrapped in Sephiroth’s arms. She rolled over, deciding to ignore it. It was probably Jenna, anyway.

The buzzer rang again, and Sephiroth stirred. "You going to get that?"

"I guess." Audrea slipped out of bed, pulling on a halter and obnoxious plaid boxers. She padded out to the door, and opened it.

No one was there. "What the –" She was cut off as 4 tranquilizer darts planted themselves in her chest. "Huh…" She fell over as the drugs took effect, and Scully caught her. "Come on Mulder, let’s get out of here." The two agents, dragging their third, crawled out of the building.

Sephiroth became aware that Audrea wasn’t back yet. He got out of bed and walked into the front room. "Audrea? This isn’t funny." He looked at the door, and saw something on the floor. He picked up the ends of several tranquilizer darts, and his eyes narrowed. He picked up the phone.

In the Sector 7 slums, Mulder laid Audrea’s limp body on a bed, and pulled out a set of cuffs. Scully looked at him strangely. "What are those for."

Mulder cuffed Audrea. "So she doesn’t beat the shit out of us when she wakes up." As if he’d requested it, Audrea stirred.

Audrea became aware that she was still in her pajamas. She opened her eyes to find herself in a strange bed. Alone. In handcuffs. She looked around and focused on Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Her eyes narrowed. She knew that there were reports of employees going rogue after the war. This didn’t surprise her.

"What do you want with me?" Audrea snarled. She knew that Sephiroth would find her. Shinra would insist on it. If they found Mulder and Scully, so much the better.

Mulder looked at her. "You have no idea what you are?" At Audrea’s stoic expression he continued. "You’re an experiment. Just like us. Is that how you want to live your life?"

"What are you talking about? Lots of people get Mako therapy. It’s what makes a SOLDIER."

"No, Audrea. You’re one of Hojo’s… side experiments. You were frozen in 1999 by a colonizing race. Hojo thawed you out… like he thawed us out. You were a good person once. Look." Mulder put the computer in front of her face.

Audrea looked at the file. "How long did it take you to make this up, Dr. Scully. I’ve seen this before."

Mulder was fed up. He punched Morgan as hard as he could in the chest. "Wake up, Audrea. The Mako won’t let you remember! Or don’t you want to remember! This isn’t you!"

Audrea wheezed as the wind flew out of her. She lashed out, kicking, aiming for Mulder’s crotch. He jumped back. "How – how dare you – I’m going to…"

Going to what? You’re just a geek

What? Who are you?

Look at the file again.

Audrea looked at the file. She saw her FBI bio, her short career. Audrea groaned and shook her head. "Noooo." She could feel the memories trying to break free. "I’m…I’m…SOLDIER…First Class…Commander…Agent Morgan…FBI…"

Audrea huddled on the ground, shaking. Mulder and Scully looked on sympathetically. Audrea was in for a rough time. As he watched Mulder became aware of sounds outside. Gunfire. Shinra troops. He looked around.

There was no way out.
