"Life"The doctor let his hand slide off the release command as the suspension liquid finished draining into the reserve tank. After nine months of work, sweat and tons of metal hardware, she was finally ready to be woken up. He jumped down from the doorway to the tank, still knee deep in the neon green sludge. Almost giddy from excitement, he set about turning off the machine she rested on and draining the liquid from her support tubes. He was so impatient to see her reaction to her new self that he almost imagined that she moved by herself as he turned the electromagnetic stimulators down to the 'off' position. The tubes connected to her new metal skin and limbs popped off with hisses of pressure being released. He carefull removed her respirator mask and pumped the 'liquid air' from her lungs. When she started breathing on her own, he removed a small screwdriver from his kit and inserted it into her earpiece, switching the metal machinery, now in harmony with the rest of her, into full operation. Her eyes fluttered open and her entire body shivered from the top of her head to the ends of her toes, still submerged in the tank fluids. He doubted that any scientist or mother could feel as proud and relieved as he did at that moment, when she connected her gaze with his own. He removed his jacket and pulled it around her body, helping her to sit up as she asked him questions with her eyes.
"Welcome back," he chuckled, gathering her up into his arms and reveling in the moment. He knew that in a few minutes Rastel would come barging in the doors, shrieking at him for not letting her wake up Cora so she could properly clothe the girl before he saw her. Please, he was a doctor, she didn't have anything he hadn't seen before. And-
He cut off his train of thought and gripped the girl closer. It didn't matter. What mattered was that he suceeded and that the creature in his arms, the outcast of society was his. She was his.
The First Day's word: Life.
A very few of you may recognize Cora's name. It is a story I haven't made very well known here.
I plan on coloring when I have more time. For now, onto Day Two's word!
Marked Mature just to cover my bases. You can't REALLY tell, but she will be noticably naked when I'm done.
EDIT: inked now :3
