The first time I saw him, I had no idea he was created in a lab.
I’d been living on the streets for around eight months before I lost count. It wasn’t easy, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home. In all that time, unable to trust anyone, I had been alone (I knew from experience that people always failed you). Then one day, while out searching for food, I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked.
It wasn’t a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn’t a normal dog – he was crazy intelligent. I’m talking Mensa levels. And he wasn’t an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.
We were just getting to know each other when things took a bloody turn.
The vet, Sully, a troubled guy who had recently lost his wife to cancer, did what he could and I guess that would’ve been the end of our story if we hadn’t been attacked by a gang of mercenaries who destroyed Sully’s clinic and seemed intent on doing the same to us.
So now here we were, the three of us. On the run across the country against a powerful enemy. Who were they and what did they want with us?
Through the danger, terror, and pain, one thing was becoming clear to me: I had finally found the family I had always wanted and I would do anything to keep them safe…
Even if it meant risking my own life.
