"You can't go in there! Mr. Dominic said no interruptions..."

"Screw Dominic!" Boyd pushed past Laurence's secretary and stormed towards the Chief Security Officer's private office. "I've read Echo's mission folder and there's no way in hell I'm letting her go out on this engagement!"

Boyd shoved the double doors open and stood gaping on the threshold.

Laurence had Sierra bent over the desk, dress pushed up to her waist, his hand at the back of her neck, keeping her pressed down, unable to move.

"You son of a bitch," Boyd breathed, fuming.

Two burly security guards grabbed him by the arms and dragged him away.

"Mr. Dominic can't see you," one said snidely. "He's busy right now."


"You can't go in there! Ms. DeWitt said..."

Boyd slammed his way into Adelle's office.

"Mr. Langton!" she exclaimed, but he cut her off with a curt gesture, interrupting.

"Do you have any idea what really goes on in this place? Did you know that Dominic is right now fucking Sierra - one of your precious Actives? Being physically abusive? Basically raping her under your roof?"

Adelle stood up painfully straight, icy cool as always.

"What Mr. Dominic does is none of your business."

"Well, it's certainly yours, because for this engagement?" Boyd spat out the word, treating it as if it were as distasteful as the act in question. "He's got her in a brunette wig and she's wearing your dress..."

If you think I'm horrid/creepy/mean with this fic (and I *like* Reed Diamond!) consider what my beta asked of me and I couldn't do.

Show that Sierra was really *in there* during the rape.

I couldn't. Not because it would attention draw away from the main story, which is Laurence's secret hatred of Adelle, or the fact that Boyd's the conscience/protector of the resident innocents, but that I firmly believed that if Boyd saw the real Sierra suffering - as in no wipe to save her, this is the real her? No way they could drag him away even with two guys.

And that would have been a whole other story.

Very special thanks to beta melissima for her assistance with this fic.

This is creepy and dark and fascinating. I especially liked the twist in the gut that comes at the very end.

Thank you! I figured I'd take Joss' existing creepy tone and nudge it into the adult realm for a bonus creep out factor.

Oh, this is awesome (in a really disturbing way anyway). That last line really pulled a punch. It's such a creepy feminist twist. Adelle might be in a position of power but being a woman, she's also in danger of being violated, even if it's 'only' by proxy. Very impressive, and also amusing in a dark way.

I'm glad you didn't draw attention to Sierra because otherwise I couldn't have read the fic. :) It would have been a very different story too. I see I'll have to be cautious and read the warnings when I read a new fic of yours.
