Summary: Gregor has been living as a Two for most of his life, but it's a lie. He's really a Third. And now he's been found out and pulled into the lives of one of the great Families.

"I am a member of the Family," Park stated as though it was everyday kind of news, and to him it probably was. Gregor was shocked enough for two people. "The Family requested that I assess you for the possibility of merging your genome with the Duadenora."

"And I passed?" Gregor hadn't meant to ask, but the words had slipped out.

Park looked amused. "So far."

For days, weeks, months, *years*, there had been a frustration building under his skin. The knowledge that whatever happened, he was powerless and his choices for his own life didn't matter. No one was going to let them matter.

Because he was a Third.

He was a viable breeder for a dying humanity, and they were never going to let him forget it. Not until he gave them the babies they demanded or grew too old. They would use him up and throw him away.Read more... )

"If I wasn't a Third," Gregor said, and it wasn't bitter at all. He'd given up the dreams of Competition a long time ago.

"Yes," Park said, because it was true.

Gregor's status as a Third precluded him from any form of Competition. After the Plague, he was considered too important to risk. Not that it meant much to him now; his time when he could have feasibly Competed was over. At twenty-eight years old, he was considered past his prime and that was simply reality.

Sometime while he wasn't paying attention, he'd gotten too old. It was strange to think about.

"It was quick," he said. At Park's questioning look, Gregor shrugged. "Sorry, just realizing my own mortality."Read more... )

He pushed himself away from the pool edge and let his feet go over his head in a dolphin-flip before swimming toward the other end of the pool and back in a quick lap. He needed a chance to regain his control. Otherwise he would end up saying something unfortunate.

His mouth had gotten him into trouble before.

By the time he looked back, Zero was gone. Probably off flirting with the pretty girls he so obviously preferred. It was a relief.Read more... )

CHAPTER ELEVEN

The wanting and the need had become a constant itch, one he'd ceased being able to ignore. The Heat was coming on fast, and his bit of masturbation had only exacerbated things. Medical figured there would only be another two days before the Madness was upon him.

Gregor spent several hours in Zero's company and heard all about his interest in botany. He learned more about cross-hybridization of differing genus groups than he'd even known existed.Read more... )

Gregor slowly read every page in the book, ignoring the heat building in his lower belly.

He'd forgotten what it felt like, that liquid heat burbling just under his skin. A potent cocktail of hormones was flooding through his veins, canceling out some of the pain of the changes happening to his body.Read more... )

Park crossed his legs and propped his glass on his knee. "Well, there's no reason to leave your curiosity unsatisfied. My childhood was a happy one with many friends and cousins, and I was free to torment my younger brother as I liked. Zero was always a good sport about it. There was one time when we were so desperate for frozen cream that we got all the cousins together and we staged a raid on the kitchen. There was..."

There was no denying the fascination Gregor felt as he watched Park be more animated than he'd ever seen him. It was like meeting a completely different man. One that was funny and quirky and obviously loved his family, even as he lived a life devoted to duty.Read more... )

He didn't like to think of the times when he'd been young and vulnerable. He'd grown up since then and learned his lessons well.

Which is why he could look at and appreciate the level of protection the Duadenora were offering. It was a better deal than he would get anywhere else, a chance for him to be risen up out of the ranks of the lesser class and taken directly to the top.

He leaned close to Park. "Well played."Read more... )

CHAPTER TEN

By the next morning he'd managed to get a lid over his emotions. He'd had his breakdown in the bathtub, then he'd stayed awake most of the night and thought his way around how he was going to handle the current situation and the future.

He was a Third. It was not something he could change. The State required him to have a number of children. That also was not something he could change. Those were the two things that he could do absolutely nothing about.Read more... )

By the time they reached his rooms, he was staggering. The pain made it hard for him to walk and Park had to hold him up by the shoulders once he started listing to one side.

He wanted to be embarrassed, but he couldn't manage it at the moment. His eyes were tearing up from the pain and more than anything he wanted to sink down into a cool bath, then spend the rest of the night with a cold pack across his lap.Read more... )

Gregor kept his expression pleasant as he followed Park around the room, letting himself be introduced to even more members of the Duadenora. It had reached the point that his head spun with names and he was beginning to resent the way they were forcing their Family on
him.

He had never been interested in a life surrounded by people. He'd always been rather secretive, and it made him feel safer if there were few people in his home. He partied at other venues. His home was the place where he could lessen his guard and relax.Read more... )

He reached his room in time to be corralled by Park. He left the book on his bedside table as he hurriedly dressed. One look at Park's no-nonsense expression and Gregor knew he better be fast.

The obvious anger wouldn't have effected him so much if Park would say something, but he was stony faced and silent. It made Gregor feel like some kind of criminal just because he'd wanted a few minutes on his own.Read more... )

There were all kinds of things going on around him, but he couldn't force himself to care. His head felt like it was cracking down the middle and every part of him was seeping out.

He moaned deep in his throat, just making the sound comforting some base part of him.

He didn't feel good, sweat already beginning to run into his eyes, and though he refused to think of it, there was a building discomfort in his groin. It felt as though something was pressing down on his crotch, a pressure against his pubic bone that didn't *quite* hurt yet.

Without much planning, he turned his head over the side of the bed and vomited.Read more... )

And now, despite himself, his biology was making itself known by wanting, craving. It gave him the sense that he was losing himself and it was only a matter of time before he was a gibbering mess and trying to crawl into Park's skin.

"How much longer do I have to be here?" he asked, trying to sound cool. His blood was burning through his veins and there was a trickle of sweat down his spine, but he refused to show how bothered he was.Read more... )

CHAPTER EIGHT

Stepping into the Nursery was a jarring experience. The youngest child there was ten years old, a towheaded boy with guileless blue eyes and bitten red lips. He was the pampered baby of the Family.

Gregor remembered a time when there had been children everywhere. People had walked around with babies cradled in their arms with no trace of fear. Now children grew up in armored prisons and those born since the Plague were as precious as any Third but rarer.Read more... )

Park came into the room after him, efficiently doing a quick search before giving him a nod.

Gregor just rolled his eyes and flopped on the couch, careless of his expensive clothing. "Can you believe that guy? I wanted to punch him in the face."Read more... )

"I never tried to fool you about my identity. It was just something that happened." Tersoe sounded so defensive that Gregor wanted to laugh.

"Neither one of us was completely honest," Gregor said. "We both screwed things up," he turned to face Tersoe, "not that it matters very much."Read more... )

CHAPTER SEVEN

By the time dinner was over and the servers were clearing away the dishes, Gregor had worked himself into a state of silent panic. He didn't let anything show on his face, but on the inside he had nearly given into despair. This whole situation was going to turn out badly.

"Are you all right?" Park asked, low voiced.

Gregor gave him a faint smile. "And what would you do if I said I wasn't?" His hands were folded neatly in his lap and he refused to spin his rings or bite his fingernails. "I can't run away from this. It is what it is."Read more... )

Gregor had yet to meet *the* Duadenora, but when Rutherford Hizel came into the room it was as though the very air began to hum. There was no confusing him for anyone but the man himself.

He held himself like a king.

Hizel was tall and thin with the papery skin of a man much older than his Sculpted face would suggest. Gregor didn't know his exact age, but Hizel had been in control of his Family for close to fifty years, and he had been an Enforcer for twenty years before that.Read more... )
