""A journal?!"" Both Boyo and Jeremiah exclaimed.
"Yes... SIGH... A very long time ago, way before our formerly great nation was completely destroyed, former General Franklin Crow brought a younger me to one of his expeditions but this want just any regular expedition. It all started with him unintentionally finding the Philosophers Stone which brought about the rebirth and Emergence of our greatest soldier Anthony Wonne on one of his trips into the United States territory, allowing us to tap into a power that was only secret to our enemies. At that time and I had just been born so my father was the one who spearheaded the position I would later get when I was old enough so none of them knew that that small piece of attractive stone had such power hidden within it until years later, moments before the fall of the Old Soviet Alliance territory"
Icon spoke with vivid words so that they would be carried along to where he was heading to.
"Being a curious man and thi
Once we were brought to the back, my eyes went to the elderly looking man sitting on a metallic chair with a caramel skin coloured lady by his right hand side. In front of them I saw two more individuals who weren't turned to us at the time we entered. One of them I couldn't tell their identity from their stature but the other I knew perfectly well who it was. "Char!" Before I could get the word out Levy called out to Boyo who once the both of them turned we saw an annoyed look on his face and it was clear by that look that he didn't want us to be there. The Upriser behind us pushed the both of us, telling Levy and I to keep on walking which we did until we walked up to where Boyo and the others were. "Nice to meet you, the both of you" Icon greeted us with a gentle smile which was obvious that he was hiding something from everyone, including those who were supposed to be his comrades in there. There was still something he failed to expose. "!!" Levy
Levy who was close by and saw when Akarli was taking aim jumped in front of Boyo, trying to shield him with her body while I was beside the both of them, noticing too late until the shot had been fired.Jeremiah who the shot pulled back to his senses and he saw who she was firing at, the care he had for his best friend even though he didn't want to admit it made him lose it and reflexively he fired multiple shots at Akarli too, killing her on the spot next to Icon.All of this would happen in an instant but for some reason, because I didn't want any of my friends to be shot so badly that I dont know what happened but just like when that strange phenomenon happened back at the court during our escape and I managed to find where Boyo was because of it, it happened all over again.Suddenly everything began to slow down and the surrounding got pitch black with the only thing being as visible as day time were those in there with an angered Akarli holding on to the gu
Mirajh jumped off from the top of the drone and they walked up to the others and because Mirajh was there, Talon quickly relinquished his temporarily given authority in favour of hers."Mirajh and Malkome, you guys made it. So what's going on?" Talon asked."It's over, all our forces have been killed and from the looks of it, we are the only ones left so the question now should be, what should we do next?"Once she said that all their forces had been killed, there was a unanimous dropping of jaws and none of them expected that it could have gotten this bad. They had completely underestimated the Arc Agents and the trainees. The GHA weren't even able to send their Forces Units to assist but the trainees alone along with help from the Arc Agents were able to decimate their entire forces."What about General Icon, does any of you know his whereabouts? If we can verify his status then we might be able to come up with a plan" Talon asked but seeing the look on
"Please make it in time""If I do this then maybe it'll make up for the fact that all of this happened because I jumped back""Please make it in time"I was currently stuck in a hellish nightmare which was entirely guilt driven. Every action and consequences of said action replayed in my head, panicking, unable to find peace until I woke up with a *GASP*After forcefully waking up, I reached for something with my hand only for that to be the ceiling of someplace I couldn't recognize or knew how I got there. I would pant, trying to catch my breath when all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain in my chest.My teeth gritted and eyes squinting in pain, I reached for the source of this excruciating pain which was when I noticed the medical equipments I was hooked to and that I was on a hospital bed."This is familiar" I said internally after thinking of how it reminded me of waking up in a hospital as my host, the last time I jumped into the pas
I had called my handler to meet me by a nearby coffee shop and by the time I got there he was already seated, waiting for me. Normally I avoid contact with him because it's always him hounding me about something but this was the first time in a long time that I was the one doing the reaching out."Sorry to keep you waiting Nick" I shook his hand then sat down."No problem, so, what is the purpose of this unexpected meeting""I want you to tell me everything about the Arc Agents and what the GHA's real objective is" I didn't waste anytime to ask the real questions.Nick was shocked by the bluntness of my question then tried to deny everything I asked and said in that meeting, gaslighting me most of the time and so it ended up with me not getting any worthwhile information out of him. The meeting took place before I had to go for work so without getting anywhere we ended it and I went to work but I knew that my questions wouldn't stay with Nick but wo
I just want to say a big THANK YOU to every single reader that was able to get this far. Thanks for picking up this story and continuing with it even when the writing wasn't as good at the beginning and when the plot was feeling flat because I wasn't in a good head space or had enough free time to write what I wanted. Thank you for helping me grow as an author and tell my story and get your thoughts on it through the comments. Thank you for following me to the end of this journey. It's been almost two years since I started and finally the story comes to an end (or does it?) If you noticed I was kind of making things up as I went along which is why there are a few plot holes and things I forgot I had written before that didn't tie in well with the continuity of the story. This is my first ever book so a few mistakes are to be expected but regardless I apologise for them. I wanted to use this medium to both declare my appreciation for you guys as well as to pas
DING DONG!!DING DONG!!The entire area echoed with the constant ringing of the very dilapidated clock tower in the middle of the district whose busted gears kept it stuck at 12 noon, hence the constant ringing and no one cared or seemed bothered enough to get it fixed.It currently is the year 2059 and contrary to movies predicting that around this time period the skies would be filled with special flying cars smarter than your average Joe and capable of self operations, a world population of over 10 billion people living lives made autonomously easy with robot butlers, chefs, doctors, even something as redundant as robot dog walkers for that matter, and finally, resources so abundant that people would be able to eat four square meals a day with no worries in mind and even have enough to spare.Another addition to the list would be vast and sparse area of lands and clear skies throughout.Well
I took in a deep inhale of the air which felt way less heavy than how it was in my original time and held my two hands out, pushing them against the huge glass and metallic doors that were The Frenzy Prime Primary School's famous entrance doors and the force of opposition they gave were just the right amount even for a ten year old.Frenzy Prime Primary School, a well renowned academy which also has the form of a higher academy, for older kids, a secondary school which all became forensics hubs and medical studies institutes by the year 2047 and then by the year 2053 the formally known secondary school which also became a medical studies institute was shut down after there was the first ever reported Pyrex 9 outbreak in the District.For quick response, the entire State had to be quarantined which was a bit excessive because shutting down only the District or City even would have been enough, well to me anyway, but with what the GHA had to
