She had a pretty good life, to tell the truth.
Working as a trauma nurse in the emergency room of her town had been engaging and rewarding, and nightly dinners with her family had been the highlight of her day after a long shift of beating back death and saving lives.
The keyword was 'had'.
Ever since the Monsters took the liberty of overthrowing the human government and demoting mankind to the bottom of the food chain, things have gone to shit for her species. Especially for her and her younger sister.
Now no longer able to do what she loves as a full time gig, Riona scrapes by day to day working in a food packaging factory to keep her and her sister afloat in this new world.. all the while patching up an injured human here and there, since physicians for humans were no longer a luxury.
Things had been fine for the past few years in this new world, both she and her sister had finally adapted to their oppressed lifestyle.. at least until a certain injured Beta is quite literally deposited on her couch.
