There, at the other end of the hallway, stands a man. He is barefooted and is wearing nothing but a pair of grey sweatpants. His hair is long and he has a beard, both of which are unkempt.

But this isn't what catches my eye, no. It is the swirling tattoos that trace nearly every inch of his skin. Sharp lines and tribal patterns criss-cross over his tanned flesh in a kind of entrancing, intricate beauty. They wrap around and enhance his already toned muscles and complement his wild, animalistic look.

His looks, however, only heighten my fear. He is obviously not security nor an employee. No, he is a project--an experiment. He starts to stalk towards me.

His obsidian eyes, that are nearly obscured due to his dark hair, stare into my light green ones with an intensity which nearly causes my knees to wobble.

My breaths come in quick pants and I struggle to not become subject to fainting. "Someone help me, please," I beg.

"Just stay calm, Ms. Odair. As long as you don't make any sudden moves he shouldn't hurt you," a voice I barely recognize as Dr. Vanderwall's crackles over the intercom speakers.

"W-who is he?" I ask as the man stops only an arm's length away from me. The man slowly reaches a hand out to me and I flinch as his fingers gently stroke my red hair.

He steps closer and leans his forehead against mine, a low growl emitting from his chest. I can feel his breath on my lips as he continues to pet my hair.

I hear Dr. Vanderwall's voice crackle over the intercom, "That is The Tekula Project."
