‘Is this seriously happening to me?’ Shinkei looked upon her ship with panicky eyes, energy cuffs holding her body at bay. Two men of the group kept rifles pointed at her as the other thugs began unloading the cargo from her ship. Watching her job being ripped from her hands that she could do nothing against. Knowing that her company would dock her pay for months if she could even survive this event alive.
That didn’t hurt the most for her though, just small problems despite the importance of her. No, the biggest hurt for her, is what they had done to her ship.
It had been a normal courier job, despite the more risky place from her normal run. She figured this would be a publicity stunt, showering the less fortunate with free medicine enough to garner praise that wasn’t really needed. Her ship had given her just enough warning before she was attacked by the much larger frigate that captured her before she could repair the ship. It took short work, and a few rifles to her face to get her to comply.
“Alright men, thats all of it. Lets scrap them both and see what we can get.” The main man spoke, giving a nod to them both. Shinkei could feel her core drop even further into her stomach. They were going to rip her baby apart, destroy her ship and all the work she put into it. This was something she could not stomach any more.
“No! Leave my baby alone!” Shinkei shouted at the men, nearly springing to her feet. The two men besides her tried to wrestle her down with strikes from the butts of her weapons, but for once she was glad she was mostly metal on where they struck. She ignored them as she struggled closer to the men, the EMP cuffs preventing using any of her skills.
“I just got the engine core upgraded to a dio-nexus with a tri core overclock system. Don’t destroy my baby.” Shinkei pleaded with the men, even as all of them finally drew their weapons on her. She ignored the weapons while staring down the obvious leader. He blinked mostly in surprise, shocked that she would plead for the life of her own ship instead of her own. Silent tension hung in the air before finally bursting out in laughter, having to hold his side as he lowered the weapon. He turned away from the crew to compose himself, eyes glancing at the small courier ship with a new respect.
“Huh, that kind of stuff isn’t even on the market easily. No wonder it took us so long to pluck you from the sea. Ya know what, I might actually keep this myself. A personal little cruiser I can fly around.” He spoke, eyeing the ship lecherously. Shinkei blanched at the mans look, wishing now the ship could be destroyed instead of using the ship. That sense of disgust and fear finally provoked her to move, and with a guttural roar, she charged the man, wanting to knock him out with all her 5’2” body of metal.
She didn’t get far before the leader shot her point blank. Normally a bullet wouldn’t kill her, though stun her, he had used an EMP bullet. She could feel her body collapse against her will as she dropped to the ground, her mind fading unconscious slowly. She had just enough of her own mind to hear the leader speak one last time.
“Alright, lets see what other goodies this girl has on her. I got a new ship to test out men”...
“Hyup, no need for the junk.” The men spoke, dropping Shinkei’s nude form into the scrap heap. They watched as her shut down body began tumbling down the piles of junk and metal, the rumble of their ship stirring the air. They chuckled a few times before her body was partially buried under metal as they took off, leaving her body for done as they went to go sell their goods.
