Today, Zack decided, struggling fruitlessly, was not his day.

He’d been walking through the slums, minding his own business, when he’d been attacked. Odd enough that someone was crazy enough to assault a SOLDIER — though it was odder still that this guy was stronger than he. And Zack could feel the strength ebbing from him, once the guy’d sunk his teeth into his throat.

The world spun, and suddenly his attacker was gone, blasted away. Zack stared, dazed, up at the boy who’d saved him — barely fifteen, but his eyes were so old…

“Oh, hell,” said his rescuer.
