MC realizes the guy who snuck into her hotel room is not who he seems and he situation might be a whole lot worse when someone else knocks on her door. This takes place towards the end of chapter 1.
My eliminator knocked again.
Had I f-ed up that badly without even knowing it? The truth was, yes. Yes, I had.
Unlike the hotel's other patrons, I never had visitors, clients or otherwise. No one ever came to my hotel room. Except that sexy man. No one even knew where I was staying. Except Scorpio. But there was no getting around the subcutaneous microchip implanted between my shoulder blades, compliments of the Scorpio school system. When we were trained to disguise ourselves so well that not even our own families or loved ones could identify us, Scorpio needed a way to keep track of us.
If that system, if the Scorpio Database had been hacked . . . If one non-Scorpio could find me, there was no telling how many others knew where I was. Or how many other Scorpio had just been given away. I needed to get out of there, my communications assignment be damned. If I didn't, I'd be dead.
Eliminated. Wiped from the records, like I had never even existed.
I'd be the same as my brother.
Nothing I could change about what already happened. All I could do now was contact Scorpio about the system breech and let them take care of it from here. I was in the middle of sending the message to Scorpio when there was another knock on my door.
I could run. Take the emergency exit window. Use my silkwire to swing up to the neighboring roof. Since these hotels were only five or six stories high, had flat roofs, and were practically built on top of each other, escape would be easy.
