They dragged Kat, kicking and wriggling, down the docking bay and into the spacecraft. Everything she saw was colored black; a black ship crewed by black clothed men. They towed her, still struggling, through the ship’s passages to a storage room. No one spoke to her. One man searched her dirty overalls, removed her knife, and then, he flung her into a small featureless room.
Kat was left alone in the room. The familiar noises and vibrations marked the ship disengaging from the dock, and lifting into orbit around the spaceport. She stared around the windowless room. A simple bed platform on one side and a utility pot relieved the monotony of the white walls. The vibrations damped as the ship entered the eerie vacuum of hyperspace.
