Alexand Merek and Juba Apfvarzian have survived inside a floating asylum ship, whilst being experimented on by scientists. Others have not been as fortunate. Most die after a few days, and neither Alexand nor Juba understand why they are still alive. (See The Floating Asylum Part one) Alexand has been in the asylum for almost four years and her hopes of returning home to her family are now a distant memory. This story will be told in three parts. This is the first instalment from Alexand’s perspective. (This story features Helga Ritter, known to Alexand as ‘Ophelia’.) CLICK HERE for next chronological story.
