“How dare you!” She shouldn’t have barged into General Madison’s office, but Mikayla didn’t care. This was personal.
Her commanding officer rose from his desk, his hands raised in the air. “Now calm down, Colonel Jones, and remember who you are talking to.”
She slammed the door. “I can’t believe you let them clone Daniel and then send him to me to train. I had no problem training them when I didn’t know who they were made from, but this is just…wrong. Daniel never gave permission.”
He stepped out from behind his desk, lowering his arms. “I can see how intimate this situation is to you.”
She glared at him. “Oh, really?” The only way to get more personal was if they’d created a clone of herself, and she would never allow that.
“You need to be quiet and listen, or I will have you escorted out of my office. Please sit.”
Mikayla plopped into one of the leather chairs in front of the general’s desk. She gripped the arms, holding in her anger, though she still had so much of her mind to tell him.
The general sat back down. “Just so you know, Daniel did grant permission to be cloned when he was first contracted to Onatria.”
She shook her head, unable to believe the man’s words. Daniel would have told her if he’d agreed to something so significant.
“He actually created D1, before cloning became legalized. He used his own DNA.”
“No.” Is everything I knew about Daniel a complete lie?
“Yes. He didn’t want you to know because the survival rate of the clones in the beginning was less than one percent. Now, ninety-nine percent will go on to serve our government.”
“But Daniel’s been dead for years. Why did you suddenly decide to clone him again?”
General Madison wiped a hand across his face. “Mikayla, the clone in your squadron is the thirty-second clone made with Daniel’s DNA. He’s D32.”
“And you’ve kept them from me all along?” She dug her fingers into the leather. How had she never found out? “What happened to the rest?”
“The early ones didn’t survive. Those that lived stayed in the labs to help Onatria create better and better clones.”
The information left her mind spinning, and she struggled to breathe. “So why is this one out of the lab and in my squadron? Why couldn’t he be trained by someone else, somewhere else?”
General Madison smiled, and she had a feeling she wasn’t going to like his answer. “Because he wanted to be trained by the best. You are our best instructor and have turned out our best pilots. Why would we send him anywhere else?”
Oh, he thought he’d sweet-talk her into compliance, like he always did when he wanted something. But not this time. Mikayla had her own agenda now that she knew the truth. She stood up, resting her hands on his desk. “I’m going to the labs in Geneva to see the rest of Daniel’s kids, brothers, whatever they are.”
“Colonel Jones, you will do no such thing.” His tone grew sharp. “You have a squadron depending on you.”
She couldn’t hide her rebellious grin. She’d been kept in the dark too long. “I am going and I’ll hijack a plane if I have to.” Although she’d always turned down the opportunities to tour the labs, Daniel’s research now affected her directly. She had to find out more, needed to see the labs for herself.
He sprang to his feet, his chair scraping the floor behind him. “I will be leaving for Geneva in two days. You can wait until then.”
His nostrils flared, and she didn’t consider defying him.
“You are dismissed.”
Marching from the office, she returned to her quarters to pack for her upcoming trip.
