Summary

What if you discovered you'd been sold?

For Mason Guthrie, a sudden arrest, railroad trial, and quick conviction for the "vandalism" of fixing things around his tenement building come as a shock.

For Rosa Fuentes, it's just more confirmation that, to Earth's rulers, they're nothing but commodities to be bought and sold.

Together - along with Rosa's disturbingly capable AI - they break out and make their way off Earth to start a new, free life.

Unfortunately, the folks they stole a billion credits from along the way would like those back.

Disappointed

The story had potential but lacks depth. There's not much backstory, was Mason dropped on his head when he was a baby? He acts like a 12 year old. The end is contradictory to the basis of their goal. This story is too simple, which makes me think the writer lacks creativity.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
