Nullany's origin

Postby Kewney » Wed Aug 04, 2010 6:26 pm

The first part of a my first story, which I wrote in English. I was having lunch break as I started to fantasying about the origins of my role play Character Nullany. I couldn't stop anymore and designed a very cool plot on about 20 notepads. Hope this first part turned out as I planned, since it's really not easy to get into the role of someone with a total amnesia.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Part 1

The room was silent for way too long and the blank white walls with their sterile white indirect lightning just underlined the lifelessness of it. Already for hours the body of the little yellow furred fox girl remained still and silent on the ground and watched the very weak body of a chameleon girl lying on a hospital bed. Usually she wasn't curious about the experiments of her master, but somehow this one caught her attention. Her breathing was slow, but stable and she could watch the chest of the girl moving up and down. She didn't thought that she would make it, since she was in a incredible bad shape as they recovered her. Her hand cut off, parts of her brain damaged and almost all of her organs were ceasing their function, but it was like a miracle... she survived it barely.

Her eyes moved now for the surely thousandth time over the label, which was attached to the hospital bed. There were only four letters on it, which spelled the word "Null". She knew it's meaning, since she was right at the side of her master as he wrote it. Already there she objected against a name like that, since Null wasn't really suitable as the name of a girl. As she was thinking about it like that, she suddenly noticed a little movement coming from the little finger of her. Quickly she stood up from the ground and hopped curious nearer to her. The breathing of her slowly accelerated, indicating the little fox girl, that she was about to reach consciousness. With a greater leap, the fox then jumped onto the bed and onto the chest of the chameleon, looking down to the still unconsciousness face. The eyes of the sleeping girl twitched slightly as the surprisingly heavy fox girl landed on her, but it would still take a little while for her actually waking up. Her long bushy tail wagged wildly over her greenish scales as she waited for her to awake.

Little sensors in the fox's eyes started to scan the girl in front of her and they told her, that her condition was still stable and improving with every moment. This was just possible, because the fox girl wasn't really a fox. It was rather a shell for the one who who wanted to be watching the chameleon girl. Someone without a physical body, who still wanted to explore the world around her. It was an very advanced AI, which usually watched over the entire facility and controlled everything here. Her master build her this body, so she could keep him company, but she rather stayed with the experiments most the time.

The fox girl then suddenly leaned her ear against her chest and checked the beating of her heart. Slowly the next finger on her hand started to move slightly and she could watch her slowly waking up. Her eyelids still vibrated, but didn't open. The light was too bright and it hurt the chameleons eyes, but she still tried to open them. It took another while until she finally opened them and tried to see with her blurry eyes the world around her. Most of her body was still numb and she could hardly move herself. Still she was able to spot the little fox on her chest. Both of them watched each other motionless for a while, before the fox suddenly tilted her head to the side and looked curious to her.

"Finally awake?~" The little fox asked her and at the same moment, the chameleons yellow irises contracted surprised from hearing her voice. She looked kind of scared, but her emotions were hard to read, even with the appropriate scanners and software for it. The girl remained silent and the fox could even feel slight shivers coming from beneath her. The body of her was still mostly numb, so she couldn't even shiver properly.
"You don't have to be afraid... I am here to help you~"
The fox said, before taking a step closer to her over her chest. Just as she started to move her little body, the chameleon girl got a huge shock and desperately tried to get away. Her attempt to move was so violently, that she caused herself to fall out of the white hospital bed. She landed directly on her side while the little fox got flung a few feet further away from her. The girl was panting and looked scared at all sides as strands of her long black hair partly blocked her view. Still this didn't seemed to be her natural hair color, since her hairline was light pink. The entire surrounding was so different and unknown. But also couldn't she remember any other place, which would be familiar right now for her. The room was cubic and except the bed, which stand in the center, there was nothing other in it. All the walls were made of a white plastic like material, just one side was entirely made of opaque glass.

Quickly the little fox hopped back onto her feet and looked worried over to her.
"Nu... girl~... please calm down... here is nobody who wants to hurt you~" She said and slowly moved nearer on all fours. But it had no effect, just as she noticed that the little thing was coming nearer, she quickly started to push herself further back with her still almost numb legs. Just now she heard strange little noises coming from her ankle along with a strange body feeling. She looked down and saw that one of her legs looked different than the other. Down to the knees, they still looked the same, but there was some kind of black mechanical leg attached to her right one. Her eyes contracted again and this time she even squeaked loudly. She covered her face with her hands, so she didn't had to look at her own leg anymore, but that didn't helped at all. As she did, she noticed that her right hand changed as well and had a similar blackish machine like looking. With realizing that, she moved her hands slowly further away from her face and looked at them while shivering.

"You shouldn't move yourself so much!... you will just open up your wounds again~"
She said really worried to her and carefully tried to get closer to her. The chameleon squeezed herself against the metal frame of the hospital bed behind her and was obviously really scared right now. The little fox stopped about 3 feet away from her and started to watch her there. Her entire way of reacting was strange, she could tell, because she watched already so many experiments waking up. She acted way to different, so there had to be something wrong. Slowly she sneaked closer to her and looked up to her face. She was shocked as she saw her actually crying while sitting there, curled together like a ball. She was almost acting like a child, but even more extreme.

Very very carefully she placed her furred palm onto her thigh and she felt her shying away. But shortly after it her leg moved slowly back and her hand was touching her
"Please calm down~ I am your friend now~" She said with a very soft tune to her and started to hug around the thigh of her. The Chameleon took a few more deep breaths and then looked down to the little fox with her eyes red from crying. She remained like that for a little while and it seemed like that the near of the little girl really calmed her slowly down. Finally she seemed to be halfway okay again and so she whipped the tears out of her eyes and sniffed. The little fox girl then looked up to her again and smiled friendly

"My name is Ruby? What's your name?"
She suddenly asked, but all she got was a confused stare from her. With another sudden leap, Ruby hopped up to her lap and looked up to her again.
"Me... Ruby... and you?" She said while gesturing first at herself and then to her. The girl sniffed again, but then slowly cupped her hands under Ruby's feet and lifted her up to her face. Ruby carefully and slowly brushed a large strand of her pink and black hair to the side and inspected her looking some more. Slowly the suspicions of Ruby hardened and she placed slowly her hand onto the chameleon's cheek

"You can't remember your name right?... sounds like your brain took too much damage..."
She said to her caring and started to rub over her cheek. The girl closed her eyes and snuggled very slightly against the hand and calmed slowly even more down.
"Still, a girl like you needs a own name~"
She said quietly and her eyes moved again over the label of the hospital bed. The 'Null' still bothered her and she refused to accept a name like that for her. Her master gave her the this name not because he liked it... rather because she was the very first experiment, where he used cybernetic parts. But unlike most people, he started to count with zero instead of one, so he simply called her 'Null', like the digit.

"I know! We just call you Nullany then~ that's a pretty name for someone like you~" She then said suddenly overjoyed to her. Still it took a little while until the Chameleon girl realized, what Ruby actually means with it. She pointed with her forefingers at her and repeated the name Nullany a few time until she started to also point at herself

"Nu-nu-lan-y?" She suddenly said shyly and looked down at Ruby at the same time. Ruby just smiled and nodded with her cheerful expression to her. Slowly also Nullany herself started to smile and seem to like her new name. She might have no idea who she was or where she was right now, but it was a very calming feeling to know that someone nice as her was around.

At the same time someone else was watching them. His palm was placed on the glass plate, which separated the two rooms and he was watching Nullany as well as Ruby all the time already. From the outside it was possible to look into the other room, but it was made to prevent the ones inside to see the outside. His palm then slowly slid down and then he started to move again, walking away from the cage.
'Didn't thought she would make it... not after that hit' He thought picked up a lance, which was reclined against the glass plate and leaned it over his shoulder. With a last glimpse to the two girls in the room, he walked off.


----------------------------------------------------------------

Part 2

With a silent click, the flashlight was turned on and the light was shining directly into Nullany's right eye. Her yellow iris contracted immediately and vibrated, before the flashlight was pointed into her left eye as well. Ruby was standing on Nullany's palm and she held her carefully in front of her own head. With her little fox hands, she held a flashlight, which was almost as big as she was and checked the reactions of her eyes.

"Looks pretty good as well. ~Seems like your body will be recovered in no time~" She said happily with a smile as she turned the light off again. Nullany smiled back to her slightly, even though she couldn't understand her. Still her friendly and warm smile was calming her down and she was already feeling much better. It took a little while, but the little fox girl managed to check Nullany's entire body, despite her being just the size of her palm. After that, Ruby suddenly jumped off from her hand and over to the white bedside table where she laid down the big flashlight.
"Now I just have to check your nerve pathways~" She said as she hopped again, this time directly onto Nullany's thighs as she sat upright on the hospital bed. With a pointing gesture, she tried to tell Nullany to reach her cybernetic hand down to her. First she just looked at her hand, which still was giving her a weird feeling in her tummy, but then she slowly moved it down to her.

The black cybernetic hand was shaped exactly like her other one, but the joints of the fingers were designed to be far more flexible. There was also a very thin transparent layer coating the metal, which felt kind of like scales. Ruby looked at the opened palm of Nullany and then slowly moved her forefinger over the tip of her huge thumb.
"Don't get frightened by this, ~ Nullany~" Ruby said. Hearing the sound of her new name helped calm her down a bit. But then suddenly a little spark shot from Ruby's finger into her thumb and Nullany pulled her hand away. She was surprised since she could actually feel a piercing pain at the hit spot. She held her artificial forearm with her other hand and wiggled the hit finger around and then looked at Ruby with a startled expression. She didn't know why she was hurting her all of sudden and she really didn't want to believe it. She was so nice to her until now, why would she just want to hurt her now.

Ruby saw her reaction and sat down on her thigh slowly.
"Nullany~... I really don't want to hurt you... I have to do this to test your nerve pathways..." Ruby said to her with a very calming voice. Nullany still held her cybernetic hand with her real one and had a distrusting look on her face. Slowly Ruby moved a step further over her thigh, but the chameleon girl already distrusted her. She shied away another bit with her upper body and Ruby stopped moving again. It hurt deep within her artificial heart, which lied deep down at the lowest level of this lab within the mainframes, to see that her newest friend was afraid of her.
"Null...y~..." She said silently and went down on all fours on Nullany's thigh and gently caressed her to calm her again. But it didn't seem to change much, the chameleon girl already felt deceived by her.
"I really have to test it now... if even one nerve is still damaged... you won't be able to move your hand properly ever again." Ruby said and suddenly held her palm up into the air and showed it to Nullany. The confused chameleon girl watched as Ruby sequentially ran her forefinger over all of her fingers and caused a little spark to shoot over at each of them. Nullany watched as the sparks hit her own fingers and was slightly irritated, but tried really hard to understand the actions of the little foxgirl.

"Nullany... please trust me~ I just want the best for you~" She said and repeated this procedure a few times. Shyly she looked into Ruby's eyes and even if it was just a shell, a robotic puppet, she could sense the honesty within her actions. Slowly and carefully she moved her cybernetic hand back over to Ruby and closed her eyes. She still didn't understand what she was trying to do with the sparks, but she wanted to trust her.

Ruby carefully moved nearer to her hand again and tried to reduce the intensity of the shocks to as little as possible. Still she had to make sure the shocks were strong enough that she could analyze the data received from the nerves. She continued shocking Nullany"™s other fingers and watched her worried reactions. She still had closed her eyes and shivered slightly, but she seemed to endure the shocks willingly. After she was done, Ruby was relieved, since the results were positive and her new hand was working properly. Carefully she poked into the side of her forefinger and Nullany slowly opened her eyes again. Despite the hand being mechanical, she could actually feel the slight poking on the thin transparent layer, like it was her former scaly skin. Ruby then suddenly snuggled against her finger and looked up to her.
"I am sorry Nullany~ I hope it didn't hurt too much~" She said to her and hoped, that Nullany would forgive her for her little shock testing. But after just a few short moments Nullany started to smile as well and brushed her finger against her furry cheek.

The feeling of having Nullany's trust after just such a short time gave Ruby so many unknown feelings, but they were good ones, she could at least tell that much. The entire emotion thing was still new for Ruby, since her master just recently added the latest system for her. He called it the 'heart system', which was really a fitting name for it. It gave Ruby the ability to actually learn emotions and feelings herself. There was no way to truly program emotions, so the only way was to let Ruby learn it on her own.

After giving Nullany a while to recover from her shock, Ruby turned around and hopped down to her legs, looking at her artificial one. She had to test it as well with the little electrical shocks and so she turned around to Nullany, who watched her curiously.
"Nullany~... I have to test your foot as well" She said and opened her hand, gesturing to her foot. Suddenly Nullany slightly nodded over to her, as if she already could understand what she meant with the gesture. Ruby was actually surprised that she could conclude that, it seemed her brain wasn't so badly damaged after all. With a confident look on her face, Ruby nodded back and hopped over the leg, looking at the soles of her feet. Each foot was already as long as she was tall and she carefully placed her palm onto the scales there. Her palm started to produce a lot of little sparks, but they were way weaker than before. Nullany just twitched with her eye at the beginning, but endured it without scooting back. The sense of feeling was also optimal here and Ruby was glad, that Nullany seemed to have recovered without any complications. She still moved her entire hand over the artificial scales of the foot, to check the rest of the nerve pathways as well. Nullany in her position just felt this tickling sensation down there and wiggled her mechanical toes wildly. In some ways, It felt so real, but also very different from her natural ones at the same time.

Ruby had to giggle as she saw Nullany reacting like that and was seemingly enjoying it too. She never had experienced something like that, since most people working at the lab weren't fooling around and the other experiments were mostly too dangerous to spend time hanging around with them. After she finished her testing of the sole, she jumped back over her foot, onto her legs again.
"See? Wasn't so bad this time~ And you are in perfect condition~" Ruby said and hopped back up onto her belly. Slowly Nullany bent up more again and looked down to Ruby. Slowly a smile appeared on her face and became even brighter. For the first time, Ruby could see her truly smiling and feeling genuinely happy.

"Hey~ you are quite a pretty girl when you smile~" *Ruby said and sat herself onto her belly while wagging her tail wildly. The next thing that Ruby saw, was that Nullany had suddenly and carefully cupped her hands beneath her. She was lifting her up to her face and gently snuggled her with her cheek. The little fox girl didn't expect that, but it seemed like she really found a new friend today. She happily snuggled back as her bushy tail brushed over Nullany's hands.

Both remained like that for a little while, enjoying the company of the other as Ruby's ears suddenly wiggled. She could hear a noise coming from Nullany's tummy, which told Ruby that she was hungry. But that was no wonder, considering that her last meal was surely already quite some time ago. She giggled and looked up to Nullany who was already showing a very hungry expression.
"I bet you are hungry~ but you were still sleeping at lunchtime..." She said with a giggle and suddenly brushed one of her pink strands out of her vision. "But don't worry! I can bring you something." Ruby said and stood up on her palm. "You just have to wait a short moment... I"™ll be back in a minute."

The little fox girl then hopped off from Nullany and headed for the glassy wall. Nullany was very confused, she turned around and watched her, since she didn't understood what she was going to do. A rectangular shaped portion of the glass suddenly disappeared into the ground and Ruby quickly left the room. Nullany extended her arm and reached into the direction of the door worried and watched how it closed behind her. She still sat on the white hospital bed and slowly felt an oppressive feeling in her tummy, since she was all alone now. Until now Ruby was always there with her, which calmed her down and cheered her up so much, but not anymore. She had no clue that she just went to get some food and so she jumped off from the bed. As she landed, her legs were still shaky and she almost tripped. She still wasn"™t used to walking with an artifical leg and maintaining her balance was very difficult. Then as she was halfway to the glass wall, she actually lost her balance and landed head first on the ground. Slowly she pushed herself off from the ground and looked with blurry eyes over to the door.

"R.... r.... ru-by!?" She called out loudly. She desperately wanted the little friendly fox girl to come back, since she already missed her very much.

Part 3

A little while after Ruby left, Nullany returned to the hospital bed, sitting with her legs tucked in and slightly teetering back and forth. She wrapped her arms around her legs, squeezing tightly as she looked over to the glass door with a gloomy look, still awaiting Ruby"™s return. But as even more time passed, Nullany started to feel even more forsaken. The young chameleon girl had no clue at this moment, what the little fox Ruby was up to.

Her eyes started to wander around the room, even though nothing had changed, since she woke up there. The walls were still so white and sterile, which just amplified the feeling of loneliness. The bed underneath her was cushy, but that really didn't matter at the moment. Then she turned her gaze to her own body and couldn't help but exam it. Up till now she hadn"™t really payed much attention to her own body, except the fact, that two of her limbs were now partially artificial. She saw, that she was still wearing a white hospital gown, which was made of a very thin fabric. Her green scales actually shined through it slightly and she started to poke the fabric with her finger. She had slight claws, but not very long ones, which accidentally started poking small holes into the gown. She continued poking the gown and examining her body, before long her finger was actually poking her chest, which was actually quite developed. Though her body appeared to be that of a young adult, her mind was still like that of a child. Slowly her finger moved further down her own body, while curiously poking the scales under the fabric. Her tummy was flat and pretty well toned, which was a sign that she must have exercised a lot in her former life. In total her body was rather athletic, almost like a gymnast especially trained for being agile and flexible.

As she was poking even more of her body, she suddenly noticed her finger vanishing in mid air. Surprised she pulled her hand back and looked at it with widened eyes. Suddenly her forefinger had disappeared completely, yet she could still feel it. She started to touch the spot where her fingertip was supposed to be with her artificial hand. Nullany could actually feel the two fingers touching each other, like the missing finger was still there. And indeed, her finger was still there, just not visible to the naked eye. But then all of sudden, the area around her forefinger which was already invisible, started to expand, making even more of her hand vanish into thin air. She was shocked, and began to crawl back shying away from her own hand, which caused her to accidently fall off of the bed again. However, this time her hospital gown had become tangled into the side of the bed and caused it to get ripped from her body. Except for this white piece of clothing, she wasn't wearing anything so she was now completely naked. She quickly rolled across the cold ground away from the bed, terrified as her arm continued to disappear before her. Nullany didn't know, that she was unconsciously triggering that and her panic just caused it to happen faster. Her eyes wandered over to her artificial hand and she noticed a lot of little curvy lines, which started to glow slightly in a light neon blue color. The lines were moving all through the transparent scale like layer and the way they were suffusing her hand, resembled organic veins a lot .It was almost like another system within the cybernetic hand had activated and had started making final adjustments. Then suddenly the lights vanished as this hand started to vanish in front of Nullany's scared eyes.

A cold shiver ran down her spine as she couldn't see her arms, frightened and confused she bared her teeth. She collapsed onto all of her fours and started to pant heavily, wishing she knew just what was happening with her. At that moment, within a split second, her hands suddenly became visible again. Surprised Nullany looked at them and rose up from the ground. Quickly she started to wiggle all of her fingers, testing to see if they were still functioning like they should. Slowly she calmed down again, but couldn't help but wonder what that was. On the one side she was really scared about the fact that her limbs just vanished into thin air, but she was also curious about it and actually wanted to know more. However, she hesitated at first and remained motionless on the ground, thinking about it in her mind. Thinking of it then suddenly triggered it again and her hands started to turn invisible yet again. This time she was better prepared, but still had a weird feeling about it in her tummy. She also noticed that her artificial hand didn"™t need to flash the neon blue lights this time as it began to turn invisible as well, disappearing at the same pace as her other hand. Her eyes wandered down to her body and she could see small holes appearing in her tummy, on her thighs and in the center of her chest. Her entire body started to disappear, which made her feel even more uneasy. Quickly she jumped up from the ground and turned around, looking at her body in all possible angles as even more of her body wasn't visible anymore. Her artificial leg also started to activate the same system with the neon lights as her hand did, before vanishing with the rest.

In the end only her head along with her long ruffled black hairs with their pink roots were visible.
Nullany watched a strand of hair, which was directly in front of her eyes as it suddenly became colorless and transparent. With her invisible hand, she grabbed the strand and brushed slowly down to test it if it still felt the same. It did and so she watched as the rest of her hair started disappearing it began moving slowly from the tips up to the roots, and it didn't take long until her head and face vanished completely. Finally, her eyes started to become invisible as well, which caused her vision to change tremendously in ways she had never seen before, making her even more confused. She saw colors she never saw before and suddenly was able to see her own body again. But she was still invisible to the naked eye. Now Nullany started to look around the room again, she looked everything over carefully once again, since now everything seemed different and new.

At the same time, someone outside was sauntering down the path which lead directly to the sick chambers. The only thing that could be heard was the sound of a wagon being pushed and very loud metal music coming from a pair of earbuds. Despite the fact this person was wearing the earbuds, the music was still very audible, and easy for everyone in the vicinity to hear.The person appeared to be young adult lion male, though his hair looked really weird. They were all very long and conical, like the quills of a hedgehog. Even his mane was made out of them and a few of them were colored in neon colors. Which actually made him look like a crossbreed between a lion and a hedgehog. He was pushing his wagon, filled with maintenance and cleaning tools along the glassy wall of the sick chamber and suddenly stopped. Surprised he scratched the side of his head and walked over to the terminal right next to the door.

"Wasn't this one supposed to be occupied?" He said to himself as he started to check things on the touch display. It showed him all the cameras inside the chamber, but there was nobody in it. The last time he checked, Ruby was in there, watching the latest experiment, but it seemed like both had gone somewhere else. But that wasn't the truth, Nullany was still inside and walked along the walls, checking out all the new colors she was suddenly able to see.

Suddenly the glassy door opened and Nullany quickly looked over to it eagerly. She expected the little foxgirl Ruby to come back, but it was someone else, who pushed this strange looking wagon into the room. Nullany was still invisible, but still quickly jumped behind the bed for cover and carefully watched the weird lion hedgehog person. On top of that, she still saw him in all these new colors, which was totally bizarre. He just looked around once then approached the hospital bed, where Nullany had been hiding from him. She remained crouched down behind it and looked up to him nervously. But he wasn't able to see her and simply started to strip off the bedding.

At first it was confusing, that he wasn't paying attention to her, despite her being directly in front of him, but she quickly realized that she must be still invisible. Slowly she stood up and leaned over the bed, watching him work. Even Nullany could hear the loud metal music coming from his ear buds and was slightly irritated by it. Oddly all of the loud noise didn"™t seem to bother him and even looked happy as he was head banging slightly while working. Now her curiosity kicked in and she quickly hopped over the stripped bed. He was gathering the new set from his wagon as Nullany started to walk around him, sniffing and inspecting the weird guy very closely. The perky chameleon girl even waved her hand just one or two inches away from his face, but he still wasn't able to see her at all. Curious Nullany followed him and watched him making the hospital bed. The feeling of being invisible seemed to make the chameleon girl more confident and less afraid of her surroundings.

"Oh yeah! That's the best solo ever!!!" The lion guy suddenly yelled and threw the spare bedding set onto the bed. With a frisky grin, he started to hammer with his hands into the air, looking like he was playing an invisible drum. He was definitely acting this way since he thought he was alone, since he surely wouldn't do something freaky like that while in the company of others. Nullany scooted back as she heard him yelling, but then tilted her head slightly to the side and watched him curious and confused at the same time. Slowly she lifted up her hands as well and started to copy his movements, acting like another air drummer right next to him.

But then he suddenly stopped as he spotted something. Both of his eyebrows bobbed up and down as he suddenly leapt over the hospital bed. As he landed on the other side, his ear buds with the loud music fell out, but he was too preoccupied with something else right now to notice. Nullany climbed onto the bed and looked down to him as he was picking up the gown, which Nullany was wearing a little while ago. She still was stark naked, but luckily for her, she was still invisible, so nobody could peak at her.

"Hmm... What are you doing here on the ground so totally alone..." He said with a smirk as he started examining it. Nullany on the other side just laid down with her belly onto the bed and watched him, despite the fact, that she didn't understand anything that he was doing.
"Not a bad size at all...." He mumbled and then suddenly started to look at all sides of the room carefully in order to check and be sure that he was still alone. Since there was nobody in plain sight, he felt safe and slowly lifted the gown up to his muzzle and started to sniff it. But Nullany had already lost interest in watching him and began looking around the room again.

Suddenly she noticed, that the glassy door was still open and a broad smile appeared on her face. With a happy snicker, she leaped off from the bed and headed for the exit. The lion guy startled as he suddenly heard a female voice laughing and he started looking around obviously embarassed.
"Ah- i-is someone.... there???" He asked with a deep blushed face into the room as he quickly hid the gown behind his back. But there was nobody to be seen and Nullany simply left through the door, leaving him in the room alone for the first time since he entered. She knew that Ruby had to be out here somewhere behind this wall of glass which, until just a few moments ago, had trapped her inside the sick chambers. However, she didn't expect to see what she was seeing right now.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Part 4 - Added 27th August 2010

The size of the room beyond the door was simply stunning and the curious chameleon girl slowly stepped ahead. Directly in front of her was a metal railing, which she quickly used to lean on while looking down. She was pretty high up there, since there were actually three more floors underneath her current location, which were also filled with chambers like the one she just left. It looked like a huge corridor about 100 feet high with 4 levels of chambers on each side. Her head slowly turned to the left and she saw that the corridor lead to a huge gate, which was currently closed. There were also 3 sets of rails on the ground, which surely were used to transport bigger things.

She started to follow the railing and looked up to the ceiling. There were no windows or other openings for sunlight to come in, but the entire ceiling was covered with light tubes, aligned to form crosses. Huge shiny metal fans, which were mounted to the ventilation system were spinning at high speeds, supplying the huge hall with refreshing air. There were even rails on the ceiling, but just a single track and it was most likely for the crane installation, which was currently sitting stationary a bit further ahead of her location. Except for her, there was nobody else walking around so it felt like a really desolate and lonesome place.

Slowly she placed one leg in front of the other and looked to the side, where she spotted more of the glassy chambers like the one she just left and she could actually see inside. But when she looked in she only saw a couple more hospital beds, the people lying in them were covered by large white blankets. She could only see the shape of the people lying in there, but not one of them was moving. The next chambers were similar, a lot of motionless people in beds and all of them were covered with white sheets. But then she stopped, finally finding a room that seemed to be different. There was only one operation table in the middle and a person lying on it. A lot of surgical tools were laying on trays around it and unlike the rest of the rooms, this bed"™s blanket was not only white, but had red on it as well. What Nullany didn't realize was that this was blood and it looked like someone just underwent surgery in there.

On the table was a girl, her species appeared to be that of an armadillo, everything looked normal, only her eyes were open, yet she wasn't moving. Most of her body was bandaged and covered with sutures. Her body was also covered with countless wounds, a large cleave on her neck was the tip of the iceberg. Nullany pushed her muzzle against the glass wall and looked into the room, having a strange unwell feeling inside of her tummy. Her eyes didn't move one inch from the girl and she felt weird, like she kind of knew her, but didn't know from where. She remained like that a little while longer and looked at the blank greyish eyes of the dead girl on the table. Some distinct pictures of an armadillo girl smiling and sitting next to her flashed in her mind, but she couldn't connect it with any memory or emotion. Just a little bit of sadness as she saw the poor girl lying there.

But then she suddenly heard something coming from further off to the left side. She jumped back from the glass wall and looked over as she could hear someone's voice very silently talking and echoing through the corridor ahead of her. Unfortunately Nullany couldn't tell, if it was Ruby or not, but she couldn"™t let go of a chance to find the nice little fox girl. She was running pretty fast and left the huge hall, heading into a corridor which lead directly into the wall. The walls here were all white and a lot of medical stuff was lying around, but it was all very well sorted. This felt much more like a medical unit, since the sterile smell of disinfecting spray was in the air. The voice was coming from around the corner, but now Nullany could tell, that it wasn't Ruby. She noticed, that the voice was a bit darker, but still feminine and she was talking to someone. Slowly she snuck around the corner and saw an open door to her left.

"Now take a deep breath"
The voice said as Nullany slowly looked peaked out from behind the door frame into the room. The first thing she could see was a desk, covered with a lot of papers, clipboards and an energy drink. The person working here must be very busy and most likely some sort of physician. There were two shelves on the walls, filled with all sorts of medicine bottles and packages. As she moved further into the room, she noticed a half transparent curtain, which separated the room into two and there were two people on the other side of it. She could hear one of them breathing in very deeply, just like the other one asked them to.

"Also sounds good... could you repeat the name again please, I"™m not very good at memorizing new faces"
Nullany could hear her saying, while perkily moving her head through a little gap in the curtain. Now she could actually see who was talking there and it looked like a medical examination. A pretty tall dragon woman, wearing a white medical scrub and pants sat there on a revolving chair while taking off her stethoscopes. Her long smooth hair was white, making her look almost like a grandma from behind, yet from the front she actually appeared to be a young adult. Her scales were a dark purple and made a huge contrast to her outfit.

"Winter... the name is Ibis Winter"
Said the other girl who was sitting on a chair right next to her as she buttoned up her uniform again. Nullany was able to get a short glimpse on her exposed chest, but since it was covered with red feathers there wasn't much to see, except the shape of her slightly underdeveloped breasts. It was surprising, but she had feathers, since she appeared to be a crimson colored canary. The curious chameleon girl examined the bird a bit more unable to look away since she looked so unusual and colorful.

Unlike the other people Nullany had met today, she had a beak instead of a muzzle and also had wings attached to her arms. Since she was just wearing a tank top as a uniform, it was very likely that she was even able to fly.

"I"™ll call you Ibis then, hope you don't mind my being so informal... And about your physical assessment, you can easily join flight training. Here, this will tell Kocunna, that her worries are unnecessary"
She said to the canary girl as she handed her a document, which she just tore from the clipboard she was holding.

"Thank you very mu..."
Ibis answered with a slight bow to the dragon as she suddenly stopped. Both of them heard something and looked over to the half transparent curtain. Nullany had accidentally bumped the desk with her tail causing a ballpoint pen to fall to the ground. Ibis quickly checked the area with her sharp eyes, yet she couldn't see anything. The dragoness was also surprised and turned her head, expecting the worst, since wherever naked breasts are in play, the odds that a certain someone could be around were pretty high. But her eyes only twitched with surprise, as she was actually able to see the curious Nullany standing at the curtain. Since she was a dragon, a natural predator, she had very good eyes which were even able to see far into the infrared and ultraviolet spectrum of light. Because of that she was able to see Nullany, but she appeared to be made of a very weird pattern of colors. With a smirk she looked over to Ibis and already knew, that she surely wasn't able to see the invisible reptilian girl. Some birds would be able to see her, but mostly predators among the avian species.

"Stupid pen... almost thought it was a peeper."
The dragoness said as she slowly stood up from her chair, secretly examining the little invisible girl. She already knew her, since she assisted in the surgery which made her what she is now so she wasn't really surprised to see her invisible. It just proved that the light bending technology worked out, but not for the infrared and ultraviolet frequencies of light. Usually she would activate the alarm after seeing an escaped experiment walking around the lab, but she thought it was kind of amusing so she just decided to play along and have some fun as well.

As the two women were walking over to the other side of the curtain Nullany quickly hopped back so they wouldn't accidentally bump into her. She knew very well that she was still invisible and even though she had very little knowledge of her surroundings, she quickly learned to abuse this fact. She now stood with her back against one of the shelves and right next to the desk of the dragoness, watching them some more from there. Ibis walked through the curtain and now Nullany could see that her legs didn't fit the rest of her body. They looked Grey and were furry, just like those of a wolf. But she was a bird and shouldn't have had wolf legs in the first place. At least her waist seemed to be that of a Canary"™s, she could tell since there was a little gap in her uniform at her back through which long tail feathers were poking out, which just increased the suspicion that the colorful girl was still able to fly.

"Still thank you very much, doctor Paragon."
Ibis finally answered her while picking up her bag, which laid right on a chair next to the exit. At the same time, the purple dragoness moved over to her desk and leaned with her butt against her desk while standing right next to Nullany. She tried not to smirk down to the little chameleon girl, but she couldn't help but take a short peek before looking over to Ibis again.

Nullany's eyes also wandered up to the very tall purple dragonesses body and she couldn"™t help but be surprised by how tall she was. In this position, she actually had a good look at her sizable chest, which was fairly well hidden under her medical scrub. Nullany didn't know too much about it right now, but she started to compare her own bust with the dragonesses in front of her. She definately lost big time against her, but before she could actually continue with her little exploration of the female anatomy, the dragonesses tail suddenly rubbed against Nullany's thigh slightly. Nullany felt her touch and her hair started to stand on end a bit as she quickly pulled her leg back, since she didn't want to get exposed. The dragoness did it on purpose, just to tease the little infiltrator a little bit.

"Just call me Pestrell like everyone else." The doctor said to the bird girl, "I"™m glad the results lived up to your expectations"
However, she was more focused on watching Nullany's reactions at the moment since it was really funny. Just as Ibis said good bye to Pestrell, the perky chameleon girl spotted the energy drink on the table and could smell it from her hiding spot. Curious as she was, she quickly extended her arms and reached out for it.

"And don't forget to give my compliments to the other girls of the Valkyrie Unit"
She added as she suddenly grabbed the top of the drink with two of her fingers. Slowly she pulled the energy drink up and caused Nullany's hands, which were also holding onto the it, to move up as well. But Nullany had to let go off the can, since Pestrell was lifting it up to her mouth to take a sip while watching the Canary as she left her medical room. Nullany"™s gaze was fixed on the energy drink, since she wanted to taste the interesting smelling stuff as well. But then she suddenly felt something moving over her back and stopping right on her shoulder. Surprised she looked to the side and spotted the tail of the tall purple dragoness, following the tail she found herself looking up to her again. The dragoness was smirking down to her and now Nullany knew for sure, that she was actually able to see her.

"You"™d better leave now, Or else I"™ll have to recapture you."
Pestrell said as she suddenly handed her the almost empty energy drink and pushed her with her tail in the direction of the door. As Nullany looked back, Pestrell just crossed her arms under her chest and looked at her demandingly.
"What are you waiting for? They might already be searching for you."
She added. Pestrell knew very well that she probably wouldn't be able to escape from this place. But she was still curious about how far she would be able to get with her stealth.

Meanwhile a certain little fox girl was sitting on a tablet, which was placed in an automated elevator, which was currently moving through a tunnel within the walls and ceilings. It took a while, but she organized the perfect dish for a still recovering chameleon girl, whom she knew would need a lot of energy and vitamins now. It might be outside of the regular lunch time, but being the lab's AI gave her some pretty good advantages like having the ability to mess around with the chef"™s alarm clock. She went through all that effort to get her cybernetic hands onto a healthy meal for the cute little chameleon girl with no memories. Quickly the automatic elevator stopped and another opening in the wall of the sick chamber opened. The little fox girl quickly leapt out of the elevator and landed on the floor of the chamber.

"Nully~ I am back~ and I"™ve got something good for you~"
She called out overly happy into the room, but then looked around confused. There was nobody in sight, which was quite odd. The door was locked, so she couldn"™t possibly have gotten outside. But then she heard something moving behind the bed and she reacted quickly. She hopped over to the side of the hospital bed and then onto it, finally looking down on the other side.
"Aw there you are my little cut...."
She said with a playful voice and smiled, before realizing she got the wrong one. Instead of a chameleon girl, she saw the good for nothing janitor Santos, who was laying on the ground and playing around with a handheld.

"Wait... you"™re neither little... or cute... what have you done with Nullany???"
She yelled down to the lion hedgehog guy, who was still listening to the music from his ear buds. He didn't respond and Ruby was waiting impatiently for him to answer. With a slight sigh she suddenly lifted up her hand and flicked him with her fingers. Suddenly his music player stopped for no reason and he looked around confused. His eyes then wandered up to the bed, where the little fox girl was looking down at him with a serious expression. He got quite a shock and quickly scooted back a bit.

"R... ruby!... I swear I just took a little break....!"
He answered nervously and pulled out his ear buds and packed them away along with his handheld.
"Yeah... I know but right now I want to know what you"™ve done with the chame..."
She said and stopped as she suddenly spotted the hospital gown right behind him. She even saw the little holes in it, which appeared to be pushed in by a pair of claws. Quickly she jumped over to his shoulder and looked at the gown a bit more closely.
"What have you done... you freaking pervert!"
She yelled at him and looked up to his face angrily. He just blushed and waved his hands in front of himself out of embarrassment.

"I...I didn"™t do anything! I swear! This room was empty when I arrived!"
He answered as sweat started to roll uncontrollably down his forehead. He knew that he shouldn't mess around with an AI, that could literally control every machine in the entire lab.

At the same time, after leaving the room Nullany continued her little field trip strolling invisibly down the corridor. It was a good thing that nobody else was around or else they would have seen a flying can of an energy drink floating around. Now Nullany was staring right into the empty can, since she already drank the last remains of it. Unfortunately now that it was empty she couldn't have any more of the delicious drink. It wasn"™t long before she left the medical unit, once again reaching one of the great halls with rooms and chambers lining the sides. Nullany couldn't help but look all around the hall again leaning over the railing in front of her.

She bent over as far as she could, since she noticed that one of the crane installations was actually moving, carrying a huge metal container along the middle of the large corridor. As the crane was placing the huge red container onto some kind of train she suddenly lost hold of the metal can in her hand. Like a reflex, She tried to grab onto it again but actually just caused herself to slip over the railing. Everything moved in front of her eyes in slow motion as she shockingly noticed how she got forced down by the gravity and how she wasn't able to stop it. She just could see how the can in front of her fell as well down to the even nearer coming ground, which still was roughly 60 feet away.

very good start, looks like Nullany did have a pretty rough start after all, and I get the feeling it only gets tougher for her from there.

It's a good read, can't wait to see more.

Errors everywhere, but that ok, English wasn't your first language, right?

That aside, it had an interesting plot to it, I would like you to continue it sometime if that all right, it is quite interesting.

Part 2 is finished now, hope you will enjoy reading it =3

PS: Also added part 2 to the original post



Part 2

With a silent click, the flashlight was turned on and the light was shining directly into Nullany's right eye. Her yellow iris contracted immediately and vibrated, before the flashlight was pointed into her left eye as well. Ruby was standing on Nullany's palm and she held her carefully in front of her own head. With her little fox hands, she held a flashlight, which was almost as big as she was and checked the reactions of her eyes.

"Looks pretty good as well. ~Seems like your body will be recovered in no time~" She said happily with a smile as she turned the light off again. Nullany smiled back to her slightly, even though she couldn't understand her. Still her friendly and warm smile was calming her down and she was already feeling much better. It took a little while, but the little fox girl managed to check Nullany's entire body, despite her being just the size of her palm. After that, Ruby suddenly jumped off from her hand and over to the white bedside table where she laid down the big flashlight.
"Now I just have to check your nerve pathways~" She said as she hopped again, this time directly onto Nullany's thighs as she sat upright on the hospital bed. With a pointing gesture, she tried to tell Nullany to reach her cybernetic hand down to her. First she just looked at her hand, which still was giving her a weird feeling in her tummy, but then she slowly moved it down to her.

The black cybernetic hand was shaped exactly like her other one, but the joints of the fingers were designed to be far more flexible. There was also a very thin transparent layer coating the metal, which felt kind of like scales. Ruby looked at the opened palm of Nullany and then slowly moved her forefinger over the tip of her huge thumb.
"Don't get frightened by this, ~ Nullany~" Ruby said. Hearing the sound of her new name helped calm her down a bit. But then suddenly a little spark shot from Ruby's finger into her thumb and Nullany pulled her hand away. She was surprised since she could actually feel a piercing pain at the hit spot. She held her artificial forearm with her other hand and wiggled the hit finger around and then looked at Ruby with a startled expression. She didn't know why she was hurting her all of sudden and she really didn't want to believe it. She was so nice to her until now, why would she just want to hurt her now.

Ruby saw her reaction and sat down on her thigh slowly.
"Nullany~... I really don't want to hurt you... I have to do this to test your nerve pathways..." Ruby said to her with a very calming voice. Nullany still held her cybernetic hand with her real one and had a distrusting look on her face. Slowly Ruby moved a step further over her thigh, but the chameleon girl already distrusted her. She shied away another bit with her upper body and Ruby stopped moving again. It hurt deep within her artificial heart, which lied deep down at the lowest level of this lab within the mainframes, to see that her newest friend was afraid of her.
"Null...y~..." She said silently and went down on all fours on Nullany's thigh and gently caressed her to calm her again. But it didn't seem to change much, the chameleon girl already felt deceived by her.
"I really have to test it now... if even one nerve is still damaged... you won't be able to move your hand properly ever again." Ruby said and suddenly held her palm up into the air and showed it to Nullany. The confused chameleon girl watched as Ruby sequentially ran her forefinger over all of her fingers and caused a little spark to shoot over at each of them. Nullany watched as the sparks hit her own fingers and was slightly irritated, but tried really hard to understand the actions of the little foxgirl.

"Nullany... please trust me~ I just want the best for you~" She said and repeated this procedure a few times. Shyly she looked into Ruby's eyes and even if it was just a shell, a robotic puppet, she could sense the honesty within her actions. Slowly and carefully she moved her cybernetic hand back over to Ruby and closed her eyes. She still didn't understand what she was trying to do with the sparks, but she wanted to trust her.

Ruby carefully moved nearer to her hand again and tried to reduce the intensity of the shocks to as little as possible. Still she had to make sure the shocks were strong enough that she could analyze the data received from the nerves. She continued shocking Nullany"™s other fingers and watched her worried reactions. She still had closed her eyes and shivered slightly, but she seemed to endure the shocks willingly. After she was done, Ruby was relieved, since the results were positive and her new hand was working properly. Carefully she poked into the side of her forefinger and Nullany slowly opened her eyes again. Despite the hand being mechanical, she could actually feel the slight poking on the thin transparent layer, like it was her former scaly skin. Ruby then suddenly snuggled against her finger and looked up to her.
"I am sorry Nullany~ I hope it didn't hurt too much~" She said to her and hoped, that Nullany would forgive her for her little shock testing. But after just a few short moments Nullany started to smile as well and brushed her finger against her furry cheek.

The feeling of having Nullany's trust after just such a short time gave Ruby so many unknown feelings, but they were good ones, she could at least tell that much. The entire emotion thing was still new for Ruby, since her master just recently added the latest system for her. He called it the 'heart system', which was really a fitting name for it. It gave Ruby the ability to actually learn emotions and feelings herself. There was no way to truly program emotions, so the only way was to let Ruby learn it on her own.

After giving Nullany a while to recover from her shock, Ruby turned around and hopped down to her legs, looking at her artificial one. She had to test it as well with the little electrical shocks and so she turned around to Nullany, who watched her curiously.
"Nullany~... I have to test your foot as well" She said and opened her hand, gesturing to her foot. Suddenly Nullany slightly nodded over to her, as if she already could understand what she meant with the gesture. Ruby was actually surprised that she could conclude that, it seemed her brain wasn't so badly damaged after all. With a confident look on her face, Ruby nodded back and hopped over the leg, looking at the soles of her feet. Each foot was already as long as she was tall and she carefully placed her palm onto the scales there. Her palm started to produce a lot of little sparks, but they were way weaker than before. Nullany just twitched with her eye at the beginning, but endured it without scooting back. The sense of feeling was also optimal here and Ruby was glad, that Nullany seemed to have recovered without any complications. She still moved her entire hand over the artificial scales of the foot, to check the rest of the nerve pathways as well. Nullany in her position just felt this tickling sensation down there and wiggled her mechanical toes wildly. In some ways, It felt so real, but also very different from her natural ones at the same time.

Ruby had to giggle as she saw Nullany reacting like that and was seemingly enjoying it too. She never had experienced something like that, since most people working at the lab weren't fooling around and the other experiments were mostly too dangerous to spend time hanging around with them. After she finished her testing of the sole, she jumped back over her foot, onto her legs again.
"See? Wasn't so bad this time~ And you are in perfect condition~" Ruby said and hopped back up onto her belly. Slowly Nullany bent up more again and looked down to Ruby. Slowly a smile appeared on her face and became even brighter. For the first time, Ruby could see her truly smiling and feeling genuinely happy.

"Hey~ you are quite a pretty girl when you smile~" *Ruby said and sat herself onto her belly while wagging her tail wildly. The next thing that Ruby saw, was that Nullany had suddenly and carefully cupped her hands beneath her. She was lifting her up to her face and gently snuggled her with her cheek. The little fox girl didn't expect that, but it seemed like she really found a new friend today. She happily snuggled back as her bushy tail brushed over Nullany's hands.

Both remained like that for a little while, enjoying the company of the other as Ruby's ears suddenly wiggled. She could hear a noise coming from Nullany's tummy, which told Ruby that she was hungry. But that was no wonder, considering that her last meal was surely already quite some time ago. She giggled and looked up to Nullany who was already showing a very hungry expression.
"I bet you are hungry~ but you were still sleeping at lunchtime..." She said with a giggle and suddenly brushed one of her pink strands out of her vision. "But don't worry! I can bring you something." Ruby said and stood up on her palm. "You just have to wait a short moment... I"™ll be back in a minute."

The little fox girl then hopped off from Nullany and headed for the glassy wall. Nullany was very confused, she turned around and watched her, since she didn't understood what she was going to do. A rectangular shaped portion of the glass suddenly disappeared into the ground and Ruby quickly left the room. Nullany extended her arm and reached into the direction of the door worried and watched how it closed behind her. She still sat on the white hospital bed and slowly felt an oppressive feeling in her tummy, since she was all alone now. Until now Ruby was always there with her, which calmed her down and cheered her up so much, but not anymore. She had no clue that she just went to get some food and so she jumped off from the bed. As she landed, her legs were still shaky and she almost tripped. She still wasn"™t used to walking with an artifical leg and maintaining her balance was very difficult. Then as she was halfway to the glass wall, she actually lost her balance and landed head first on the ground. Slowly she pushed herself off from the ground and looked with blurry eyes over to the door.

"R.... r.... ru-by!?" She called out loudly. She desperately wanted the little friendly fox girl to come back, since she already missed her very much.
