Chapter 1


Entering the main ward, my lips part, and my eyes can’t touch on everything fast enough.

Holy crap!

“Stay at my side,” Chance says. “People aren’t as welcoming here as at the outer wards.”


Where everything is clinical and pristine in the ecocity, various colorful stores decorate the street of the main ward. Something called a tattoo parlor, a hairdresser, clothing – everything from sparkling fabrics to the black outfit I’m wearing.

There’s so much to choose from.

“It’s different. Right?” Chance murmurs, laughter flirting with his voice.

My reaction probably amuses him, but I’m too awestruck to care.

“Yeah,” I breathe, my gaze flitting around like a butterfly that’s discovered a field of flowers. “It’s incredible.”

As Chance’s fingers wrap around mine, a woman shrieks, “Chance, baby!”

He lets go of my hand and spins around, just in time to catch a girl with the longest legs I’ve ever seen. She wraps her legs around his waist and plants a hard kiss on his mouth.

My eyebrow pops up, and my lips part at the sight of another woman wrapped around the man I’ve grown close to.

The thought never crossed my mind that I might have to share Chance. Especially because there are so few women, and they are the ones who are usually shared.

Don’t jump to conclusions.

“I’ve missed you!” she beams at him, her pretty face covered with dark makeup.

She’s wearing the shortest pants I’ve ever seen. They hardly cover her rear, and the ripped t-shirt isn’t much better. Bangles clink on her wrist, and golden loops hang from her ears.

There’s an overwhelming stabbing sensation in my chest when Chance hugs her. It’s unlike anything I’ve felt before, and I don’t have a name for it.

I feel many eyes on me, and glancing around, it’s to see every man passing by us staring me up and down.

Uneasiness crawls down my spine.

I don’t like being out in the open like this, especially with the other woman shrieking with happiness and drawing attention to us.

After too many seconds have passed, Chance sets the girl down on her feet. I watch as they smile at each other, then he says, “Morgan, it’s been a while. How are you?”

Morgan. I haven’t heard that name before, but somehow it suits her.

She hooks her arm through his, leaning against him in a way that makes my stomach tighten and my heart shrink.

“Great, now that you’re back,” she beams at Chance with an expression that doesn’t sit well with me. “What do you think of my hair?”

Patting the back of her head, she twirls in front of him. The purple-black strands are cut short on one side, and long white hair hangs across her forehead and right ear.

“Ah… It’s different.” Looking a little uncomfortable, he asks, “Have you seen Warrick?”

“Always business and no time to play,” she pouts before smirking. “I wouldn’t mind watching you kick his ass to win a night with me again.”

What does that mean?

I pucker my lips for a split second before I realize I’m imitating her. Not comfortable with the emotions the scene evokes in my chest, I turn my attention away from them and decide to explore the closest store. That way, I can get away from all the men looking at me.

The past week at the smaller ward made me forget I’m a rare commodity because Idris, Kenzo, and the other men treated me like I was one of them, not some breeding machine. Or a hole to stick their dicks in.

After I learned the truth about sex from Chance, it disgusts me that all the women in the ecocity are subjected to the shock of finding out the hard way.

And none of them have spoken up about it.
