Rain did so obediently, and winced as she put her feet in the water. "It stings," she said. "Is that normal?"
Of course, to Rain, being hurt was a normal part of her life. It was the way that the Endevour scientists tested Diclonii to see how powerful their vectors were; by firing missiles at them, or sometimes by starving them and putting food out of reach of their hands to see how far their vectors could reach.
The enhanced Diclonii were tested even more rigorously; that was how the scientists had discovered that the vectors of enhanced Diclonii were infinate and with infinate reach. Some of the younger ones had been brought up with the "mother" concept, but Rain had been far too old when she had been brought over to the American lab for this to be tried.
