Summary: Family makes the best enemies.

You don’t share the same blood. You don’t even come from the same planet. Your birth family is gone, like hers, wiped out before your eyes along with the rest of your race.

Your new family is the one forged in blood and cruelty, sprung from your adopted father’s will. You and she are raised as sisters, part of the same army of child soldiers.

Maybe it’s the fall of her dark hair, or the green of her skin, or the grace of her movements as she wields a sword, but of all your sisters she’s the one you hate least.

Until your father, who is not your father, calls her his favourite. Until she betrays you, and him, by showing herself weak.

She’s a fool to think she could persuade you to go with her, to join with that band of losers she calls family now. The gods only know how any softness survives in her, but there is none in you. You would sooner cut off your own hand than take hers.

No enemy like a sister, you think as you fall through space. If it’s the last thing you do, you will have your revenge on Gamora.
