Orbital Implant

Orbital ImplantXander looked in the mirror. It freaked him out, seeing two eyes looking back at him.

When he'd filed his request with the Council, he'd expected to get a glass eye. Something like Columbo, that he could take out and leave in people's drinks for a laugh. He hadn't reckoned with Giles pushing for cutting edge technology.

The damn thing looked and moved just like his real eye. Strange, but a good strange. He no longer felt like a player benched on account of injury and people didn't treat him like an invalid any more. He owed Giles big time.
