What a Nightmare! Part One

Mission: Mission 7 - Sabotage
Location: Deck 4 - Quarters
Timeline: MD03 0023 Hours

It been a long day, as most days seemed to be these days. Dodian had lay down in bed and began to get ready to the sleep she'd been yearning for since the early hours of the afternoon. As soon as her head hit the pillow she was out, usually it would take hours for her to settle but not this time, not today. Last she read the clock read 0023 as her eyes slammed shut.


Flashing lights but a dimly light room, the smell of unwashed bodies, sex and machinery filled her nostrils. For a moment she felt disorientated, unsure of where she was as she searched the horizon of a small room to recognise anything. She was sure a minute ago she was just on the Mary Rose but this certainly wasn't that, the smell would be one dead give away.

"SLAVE!" she heard the blood curldling yell that always made her freeze. Slavemaster Lor, the one who stole from her people all those years ago and put her to 'use'. She began to feel around her neck, the shock collar resting upon her.


She fell to the floor in agony. What was going on?

"When I call for you slave you will answer me! If you don't it'll give me just the same pleasure to shock you into submission." he said with a toothy grin.

"S-S-Sorr--" Dodian began.

"What?! I can't hear you woman!" he yelled smacking her across the face. "Speak up!"

She had only just gotten to her knees and was once again on the floor, now holding her face which bore a read mark from being struck across it. Tears had began to form in her eyes but she knew that would give him great satisfaction and often she tried not to make him enjoy beating her more.

"Sorry Master... I have no excuse for not answering you." she stated rising to her feet rubbing her face to ease the pain.

"I should send you to see the boys..." he began.

'The Boys' were his loveable term for the people that filled the sex slave rooms and it always sent chills down her spine as often what she wanted was never taken in to any consideration. She began to open her mouth as if to plead, she would say anything to avoid that, anything.

"I'm only messing with you!" he began to belly laugh, almost roaring throughout the complex. "For a supposedly enlightened people you El Auzzians are really quite gullible." he again started to laugh.

"Well at least I'm not stupid." she muttered under her breath, decades of abuse tended to lead to her thinking his threats were more often quite genuine.


"What?! What did you say slave?!" he yelled at her, getting right into her face.

"Nothing Lor…" she started shakily, "I live to serve." she added hoping to distract him with some Orion propaganda.

"HA!" he laughed in one short burst, a devilish look in his eyes. "You'll serve 'The Boys' today for your insolence."

"What? No! Please Lor!" Dodian pleaded as she began to shuffle backwards.

Lor was having none of it and swung his large arm round and grabbed Dodian by the hair. "MOVE!" he yelled as he began to pull her towards the door.

A flash of light.


She woke up, sweat pouring from her body, her chest rising and falling with breath barely even entering her body. Looking around in somewhat of a frantic panic she noticed she was back on the Mary Rose, in the bed she'd laid to rest in mere hours ago. The clock now reading 0345 and she stared at it, touched it to make sure where she sat was real and not a fantasy.

She grabbed the covers, wrapped them around her as she began to shiver. Hopefully it was just a nightmare, having these memories come back to her was something she'd long resisted.

Why had they surfaced now?

To be continued...
