Truth: Fiction ~ Day 20 #AtoZChallenge

Xaun touched Amberr’s arm “How are you holding up?”

Amberr looked tired and more than a little nervous. “I just feel dazed. My head’s so full of questions. I mean, how much of this did she know and why didn’t she hang around for when I woke up?

“Leave to Lantau to know how to use stolen research better than the people they stole it from. Ya gotta admire the talent in that.” Drew admitted grudgingly.

Slider nodded. “Here’s the real kicker. If I’m right then Amberr is the first and only actual SHELL to have been taken from concept to completion.

Levi and Lucy: Anime A to Z ~ Day 12

Sadistic, Cold and Cruel due to the hand fate dealt them. Yet underneath the monster each of these characters displays a deep love and devotion for those that they consider family. They each develop strong bonds of affection toward people who wile not blood related come to mean more to them than any blood bond can signify. The tragedy is that each has had those they loved and their chances for a normal life yanked away from them by circumstances beyond their control.

Are they monsters of their own making or merely tragic figures brutalized by the cruel whims of fate? Could they have chosen a different path?

A T M Spells Jackpot

While skimming attacks – where a skimmer is attached to an ATM card reader to gather PIN data – which steal an individuals personal data, this attack enables the attackers to empty the ATM machine itself one fell swoop.
