I looked up. Rosanna was in the doorway to my room. She offered me a sad smile.

I could see her hand held out towards me, an offer for comfort perhaps.

Hotshot - 3There was a nervous silence between Rosanna and I as we stood in the elevator. We'd been given sealed orders at breakfast, and they'd told us to gear up and proceed into the hive for our training exercise.
