For years I have had power and no choices, yet the course I am taking will leave me powerless, with every choice I could wish for.

I have made decisions in the past and escaped the consequences. I had the luxury of receiving reports second hand of the orders that eclipsed lives and changed others in terrible ways.

Sitting here with your sister, I am forced to witness first hand the cost of my collusion with forces I realise I did not understand, to see with my own eyes, the extent of my need for vengeance.

Certainty is a powerful thing, for when the objective is clear, you are willing to make any sacrifice, at any cost, to seize that goal.

That goal was revenge Alisandra, revenge for taking my heart and soul, revenge for making me believe there is love in this world.

Two months that seemed like an eternity, when you burned your love into my mind, a fire that left terrible scars. Two months when I believed I was the luckiest man alive, that love between a human and a Lazloi was possible.

Two months of deception.

You used me as breeding material, taking by deception what your sister Kleneptra seemed compelled to take by force. What else could I conclude when you disappeared without warning, telling me only that a wonderful thing had happened?

It was years later that I learned the truth about the Lazloi, and then, only from my new associates. I learned about how your race was fading, about the great flaw in your creation, a critical error by those that made you. Perhaps I understood then why you loved me.

In a curious way, I owe you Alisandra for the successes I have made in this life, for were it not for my need to harm you, I would not be the man I am now. That man however has become blind to what he has become. He is not a responsible wielder of power; he is no more than a servant, one who must obey, one without choices.

I took Kleneptra away from Hycaron II against the express orders of the Guardian, a deception that will soon prove hard to conceal.

It is time to make choices again.

-- Karl Wolmark, CEO of the Sansica Corporation

This picture came to me while out cycling, and I couldn't think of a better way to cover this part of the story. One of those 'so so, in between' pictures, rather than the usual set pieces.

Stephanie Petite with Sapphire Fox hair and custom texture. Customised skin texture in Photoshop. M3 with Safari shirt.

Tables and walls created in Hexagon, cover sheet created in Poser cloth room.

Thanks for looking, comments appreciated.

Definitely a interesting piece even if only somewhat of a sidebar to the main story.

The panoramic crop gives it a cinematographic dimension, very fitting to the concept. Good work.

Very nicely done. You definitely convey a sense of loss and pensive contemplation. The skin tones are very well done, as is the great sense of space provided by all those empty tables. The fabric looks a little awkward to me, but I really like the texture, which looks exactly like those paper medical cloths they use in hospitals. BRAVO on work well done!
