Tuesday Teaser - Return to Emerald City by @SofiaGreyAuthor & @AllysonLindt #giveaway


Excerpt from His Reboot Girl (Return to Emerald City):


The second I started to log in, it would register in the main datacenter, but that alone wouldn’t send up any red flags. If I fluffed the login, it’d lock me out of the core network, but what would Donny do then? That wasn’t a great idea.
“What do you want access to?” I asked.
“Your vault.” The words you moron were implied.
“Which part? It’s segmented. There are different logins for each area.”
“The wetware protocols.”
Could I remember the authentication sequence? I hadn’t even remembered my own name until I heard it. I flattened my palm over the reader, and extended my hand so all four fingerprints were read at once. The login screen appeared immediately, a winking cursor awaiting instructions.
Fuck. What was the format? I swallowed hard, and then gazed at the screen, hoping for inspiration. I hovered my fingers over the keypad, unsure what came first.
“Come on, you should know this like the back of your hand,” Donny said.
Was it my name first? Or the vault name? Or a passkey? I closed my eyes and tried to visualize how it looked. How it should look.
Nothing.
I pushed at the black hole in my memory, and winced at how painful it was. Beads of sweat broke out across my forehead. What was the fucking access protocol?
I know how to make it work.
What had I been thinking of?
“Get a move on, or there’s going to be more screaming.”
I scowled at Donny. “If I fuck this up just once, I’ll be locked out of the system.” I spoke through gritted teeth.
“Well you’d better get it right.”
Think, Scott. The wetware protocols were based on the simple premise of linking up the human brain to others in a bio-neural network. Information could be shared at the speed of light. Instructions sent and received as a single thought. I’d struggled with the response times, but had cracked that problem some time ago.
 I swiped at my forehead. Think. Squeezing my eyes tight shut, I tried to blank out my thoughts. One name emerged from the darkness. Dorothy.
