Angela was born with two hearts, but was unable to love the world. She was tired of being a guinea pig for scientists, who kept measuring the impact of various simulated conditions, on her unusual body. She was strapped with monstrous machines, or draped in multiple layers of smart fabric. The money helped her parents make both ends meet, and she let them earn returns on their investment.
The angels watched in awe, as a human figure floated across the sky, without any help. It was only Angela who could have shown the courage to jump out of a spaceship.
