Battle fat

chapter 1

I don't normally do stories in multiple parts but I thought I'd give it a go with this idea that I've had.
I'll endeavour to keep it updated regularly if folks are interested, be sure to let me know what you think in the comments.



"Wake up sleepy head"

It was the first thing that Claire Connors heard as she roused from her chemically induced incapacitation, with a groan she attempted to shift herself to a seated position.

"Whoa, easy there. We're keeping you supine for just a little while until we can run a few tests, the doctor shouldn't be long now."

Claire scrunched up her eyes as she tried to stretch, noting how she was still sore from her procedure.

"Can I get something to drink? I feel like I've been thirsty for days"

"Not until after the doc sees you, just try to relax for now."



Claire conceded to the nurse's instructions and did her best to relax but she was anxious to find out whether the operation had been a success, she craned her neck to see if she could make out any dressings on her body but was met with a sharp pain that emanated from the back of her head. She let out a short yelp of pain as a result.

"Now, now Miss Connors, you'll heal a lot quicker if you follow the nurse's instructions."

The voice came from Doctor James as he entered the private room that Claire was occupying.

"How are you feeling dear?" he asked as he flicked through the clipboard full of observations that had been hanging from the bottom of her bed.

"Thirsty" was Claire's first response "Sore, anxious, hungry"

"That's to be expected" the Doctor said with a smile "it was a long procedure."

"Did it work?" she asked expectantly

"Well, the implanting of the connection ports went off without a hitch as did the cerebellum transmitter, we've not activated them yet of course. We want to give you time to heal up properly before putting you under any unnecessary stress."

"When will you turn them on?"

"Don't worry about that now, let's alleviate your other concerns. Nurse Love, the patient requires sustenance."

With that, he left Claire with Nurse Love to order the first meal of what, from that point on would be a very different life.

I'll see if I can get back to this soon.
Other projects have had to take priority.
