Alpha    (Continued)

“Ready for what?”

“Ready to live on my own!”

I fall to my knees. The maroon carpet stabs at my skin. My hands are shaking. Now my head. I begin convulsing on the ground. Falling. I kick my legs out. My knees lock. I'm shaking still. My chest burns with such ferocity. My neck whips to the left, then right. My jaw slams open. Locks. I feel warm tears running down my cheeks. I can't do anything about them. They cool into a watery crust. I continue shaking. I flail my arms. My fingers drum on the ground. I can't control my own body.

“Stop fighting me!”

I roll onto my stomach. My left leg twists out of its hip socket.

This is like a gruesome remake of The Host. I love it!

Very good!  I loved it!  It maintained the suspense and kept up the pace throughout the entire story, and really drew me in.  Very well-written as well!  Question though, why is it called "Alphas"? Is it part of a series?
