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."

Gregor Tierney. Magister Dylan Park. Zero Park. Judge Rulf Tersoe.

The State had instituted mandatory blood tests. He'd known it would happen sooner or later, but he'd let himself believe it was going to be more later.

Dread pooled in his belly. There wasn't a single doubt in his mind that he was going to be busted.

After twenty-eight years of playing Two, he was about to be outed as a Third. The idea horrified him.

"Whatcha staring at?"

Gregor nearly jumped out of his skin at the sudden hand on his shoulder. "Geez, Marcus, way to give me a heart attack."

Marcus chuckled. "Way to be dramatic. Seriously, what are you looking at?"

Gregor pointed at the notice on his ePad screen. "They're forcing everyone to go to the Public Health Stations and give blood. They want to find any unregistered Thirds."

"Good," Marcus said. "They shouldn't be out on the loose because what if something happens? We could be facing extinction; there's no room for them to be obstinate. We need them too much."

"You don't think it's wrong to force them to breed?" Gregor could feel a cold sweat breaking over his body. He would have thought Marcus would understand, but it looked as though he was wrong. "They're not being given any choice."

"It does feel a bit exploitative," Marcus said, "but we need them or we could be looking at the end of the human race. They are the only ones able to bear young. And it's not like they're being tortured or anything. They are allowed to pick the First they're going to breed with."

I'm looking forward to reading this when the full version comes out. I've been holding off on reading some of your work since it wasn't complete yet, but curiosity got the better of me. I'm really interested in what happens to Gregor, and to seeing things from Park's point of view. This is definitely going on my to-buy list when it's available in February.

The Park stuff comes off as a whole other story. He does lots of action adventure stuff and he's dealing with the science and development departments. There's a reason why the State is so tough on its citizens O_O. I hope it comes out as good as the Gregor stuff ^_^

love this story
