Freedom : Not a Number by DestinyBlue Freedom : Not a Number by DestinyBlue

Finally free, she looks up to the sky with fear and wonder as the rain splashes her face for the first time...

Sequel to: What does cold feel like? by DestinyBlue Her wish was granted: to be human. To be more than a doll and plastic parts. Suddenly she was flesh and blood, laughter and guilt.

It didn't take long for the wrong people to notice her. Something so pristine, untouched, unspoiled, there was something so unhuman in her new found humanity.
They took her in and started the tests. She appeared to be perfect, her cells showed no signs of age, they thought she could be the cure, the cure for humanity.
She didn't speak of her past life, though it was written on her arm; in a tattoo which used to be a Makers Mark printed inside her hollow arm. They never could explain it.
They used her for years, her 'childhood' spent in a cell.
Her freedom won from the strangest of places, when they had exhausted all the tests, when they realise she was just human after all.
They dump her outside. Discarded for being only human.

Abandoned but free. Her humanity is a blessing and a curse... what will she do now?

After note: Her wound is self inflicted, hoping to rid herself of the mark that she's different, she takes the physical pain to try and remove the emotional pain...

Peace love and real freedom,
Blue x

I wanted to be real,
to feel and know and live.
But when I started living,
I slowly began to die.

I tried to rid myself of the proof,
the evidence of my difference-
but humanity knows every flaw and imperfection.
I could never escape me.

They drained me in hopes of using me,
breaking me to their advantage-
but I found a way out,
and now I will be finally free.

Can I leave my past behind?
Only time will tell.
But, for this moment, I will enjoy the rain
as it splashes on my smiling face.

You should call her "Franchesca" (Or... However you spell it)
It means "Free" and it would be perfect. =3

Heart   I instantly associate this with Alessandro Barbucci's Sky Doll. Any connection? After four albums, sadly discontinued. Why, I don't know. Perhaps the powers that be wanted it so...
Again I must say that your skill in subtly showing a person's inner soul is amazing!

The perfect being that gave up being perfect so her world would have colour and feeling, cleansed by the rain of the inhumane. The curiosity of a child has still to drive her further into what she had become.
