RENA 733

Lisa Silverthorne

There wasn't much left of #733. Hardly enough to bury, much less autopsy. Another dead soldier from the multitude of colonization squadrons. I snapped on my rubber gloves, hating this job, and peeled back the body bag flaps.

I never called the soldiers by anything other than their tag number, but this one was so young – no more than twenty. Seeing another half-faced, burned body made me ill. I couldn't help myself, the name Rena just popped into my head. Her one eye, green, stared strangely content past me as I sloshed her remains onto the chrome table. Stale blood scent mixed with germicide. I scanned the reclamation orders on the side of the bag with a light pen: recover one microfeed and one MRC. A memory replacement chip. My hands began to shake.
