The prisoners called it the Goliath. A massively tall, red brick building reinforced by steel walls and bulletproof windows. The Sovereign flag was mounted on top. It waved forcefully above its conquered subordinate, the American flag. A large yellow star was placed in center with four smaller stars resigning in each corner and a red back drop to signify the five countries that dominated the world. The entire power of Krono Prison rested in that building. Lillian Kim had only entered it once.
Seven years ago, she was stabbed multiple times in the torso. Enough holes to catch herself in desperate need for an intestine transplant. A miracle to find in itself. Lily always thought that whosever drain pipes she owned now had belonged to someone who carried all their nerves in their stomach. When her anxiety kicked in, she could go without eating for days. Before the operation, she could eat like a hog. It would be no surprise that her donor was a bad stress case. But who wasn’t.
After the incident, the officers in the Goliath interrogated her. But Lily refused to give up her attempted killer’s name. Robin Monrovia. She guessed at the time that they were trying to make a jailhouse snitch out of her. After all, Lily was a new fish with a Life sentence, an invaluable resource. It wasn’t long before she discovered that the prison guards were strongly divided themselves between those who were actually loyal to the sons of bitches who subjugated them, and those still loyal to their nation. The Resistance.
