THanks for the advise. I’ve already writen up two chapters. I suppose I can post chapter one just for you guys.
“…Oxygen level: normal. Blood pressure: normal. Everything seems to be in order doctor.” Said a nurse after checking a list.
“Good. Thank you Nurse. See to that the President receives my report on the experiment.” The doctor handed the nurse a booklet labeled ‘Experiment ‘Lady Zero’ nine-hundred and twenty.’ The lady nodded and walked out of the room.
On a table in the center of the room was girl. She was covered by only a paper towel and was fast asleep. Soon she would wake up and be ready for the President’s visit. The doctor looked back at her before turning off the lights and closing the door to the room.
[i]Voices sing of a legend. A legend so sweet and so beautiful, no evil could grasp it. People began to have hope of this legend that would save them from the darkness. In years, the legend died down and the people fell into complete darkness. The sun no longer shined. The bird’s lovely tunes faded away. The land died and people grew cruel. All hope for peace and love, had ended.
Now all that is left is a barren, dark wasteland. Cities that once stood grand and tall now lay in ruins. The people of Earth scattered into the underground world for the air was polluted and stunk of death. Those who stayed on the ground were no longer known as humans but as monsters. The passage between the living and the dead was no longer closed.
There is no hope for mankind.[/i]
Red eyes shoot out. It was cold and very bright. The girl felt very weak all over her body and was very tired. She shivered but that caused a massive wave of pain throughout her body. She closed her eyes from the brightness and groaned.
“Ah, you’re awake.” Said a male voice.
She couldn’t speak.
“Don’t worry, you’re safe in here. I am Doctor Jason. I created you Experiment Nine-hundred and twenty.” Doctor Jason told her.
The woman muttered under her breath words that he could not understand.
“Don’t be frightened. You are safe.” He grinned. The doctor watched her as she shifted around very little only to moan in pain. “We should get you some better clothes before you meet the President. You be a good girl and I will treat you extra special. Here are some clothing for you.” The man pulled out a small box and placed it on the floor. He looked at her and grinned even more. “I will be back later… be ready by then.” He told her. The doctor walked out of the room, leaving her to herself.
She felt her whole body freeze up. It was getting colder. The woman got off of the table and felt the hard tile floor meet her bare feet. She carefully and slowly walked to the box, each step sending a shock of pain through her body. Once there, she opened the lid and found a tan dress inside.
“Doctor Jason, it’s good to see you again.” Greeted a man. He looked over sized and very wealthy.
“Mr. President. Thank you for coming.” Jason shook the president’s rather large hand. A greedy smile came to the doctor’s lips.
“So, where is this ‘experiment’ that your report told me about?” The president asked.
“Why… this is her.” Jason reached a hand beside him. A small almost pale hand reached out and took his. The Experiment stepped up beside him. She wasn’t too tall but not short. Her raven colored hair was put up nicely and cleared her face to show the red eyes. She now wore a beautiful and slim, showing a great hourglass figure. The President only looked over her and smiled.
“What a fine creation you have created there Jason.” He said.
“Thank you. Now, shall we eat?” Jason offered, pointing at a long table with many dishes. The two with the experiment walked to the feast and picked their meals.
‘Too many people in this room…’ thought the girl. Indeed the room seemed over crowed with politics and their families. From what she could figure, they were at a ball and she was the guest of honor.
When everyone was seated with food at all the tables, the President stood up to speak. “Friends, we have gathered here today in honor of Doctor Jason who has created the perfect weapon.”
‘Weapon? I’m a weapon?’ The girl thought. The president’s words as he gave his speech slowly died away in her head. ‘A weapon… so that’s what they think I am…’ A bitter hate filled her heart. ‘I was created to be used by these… monsters?!’
When dinner was done, Jason took Lady Zero to a piano near the center of the room. The people slowly lowered their voices and looked at her.
“I will now show you how the Experiment is supreme to all other human beings. She will now play a song on this piano even though she has never learned. Please listen and watch.” Jason spoke aloud. Lady Zero took a seat near the piano and looked at the keys and music. ‘Kindred Spirits’ by Jeff Wolpert. She quickly understood how the music went, learned the notes of the keys. In a few minutes, her fingers went into action and began to play this so peaceful piece. The people gasped and listened. As she played the song, her ears filled with a sound she did not know. It sounded like water but was strong and beautiful. She wanted to see this sound, where it was coming from and what it is.
The song lasted almost eight minutes. The people cheered and clapped in amazement. Lady Zero stood up and bowed. Jason clapped and came back near her.
“Lady Zero, Experiment nine-hundred and twenty is a successful creation. She is my best compared to my others. Lady Zero is to be-“ Jason stopped. People began to whisper and stare at them. He looked around at the faces of the people. Then, he looked at his experiment and gasped. She sprouted a black tail. The doctor dropped the wine glass in his hand and it shattered into many pieces on the ground.
Lady Zero bent down to pick up a broken piece, only to have it cut her finger. She stared at her finger and watched as a bead of red blood came out. Her eyes widened in horror at the color. She felt her heart rate begin to beat harder in her chest.
Jason stared down at her in horror. “She is a failure! A failure!” He shouted. The doctor kicked her in the ribs and she tumbled over in pain. “So fragile and weak! Get me a gun or something so I can destroy her.” He yelled at one of the bodyguards near the president. One threw him a thirty-eight special. “I can’t believe I thought you were a perfect being. No matter. I brought you into this world I can surely take you out of it.” Jason pointed the gun at her head. Lady Zero stared at her finger. Blood.
Jason fired the bullet but his experiment rolled out of the way. People screamed and began to run away. The doctor quickly got another ready but didn’t fire in time when Lady Zero kicked the gun out of his hand. He looked into her eyes. Those red eyes flared in anger. Jason took a step back. “I didn’t bring a perfect being into this world… I brought a monster…” he mumbled in fear. Those were his last words before he fell to the ground, dead.
Lady Zero watched as his corpse became soaked in a puddle of blood. People cleared out of the room with the president escaping through the back.
“Kill her.” He muttered to a ground of guards. Men wearing black armor and suits walked in with guns. The started to fire at Lady Zero but failed to hit her for she dodged to the sides, running at an inhumanly speed. She slammed one of her fists into the nearest man’s helmet and blood splattered. The experiment jumped off him and snapped the next neck in two. The men kept firing, only to miss her.
She finished them all off in a matter of minutes. Blood was all over the place. Her once beautiful dress was now torn and stained with blood. She slowly calmed down and stood there in the mess. Her eyes wide and now, stained with tears.
But her peace was short lasted. More of those men stormed in in bigger groups. Lady Zero stared and gritted her teeth. ‘More? More wants to die?!’ She yelled in her head. Her sore and red-coated fists clenched tightly. “Bring it on!” She shouted as she ran towards them. More gunfire echoed in the room. Some over roared the screams of pain coming from the ones Lady Zero had killed.
She had almost half of them defeated without a single bullet wound. But Lady Zero did not expect more coming from behind. This time they were equipped with tazers. A shock wave was sent through her back and she arched forward, gasping. More followed through, sending her into unconsciousness.
“Man… so much paper work.” Sighed Captain Zeno. On his desk was pile after pile of reports from the most recent murders, Lady Zero’s attack. He reached up and grabbed a folder. After a quick scan through it, the captain of the elite forces of the government dropped it and sat back in his chair. “Who is this ‘Lady Zero’?” He questioned himself aloud. “I better go check this out…”
Zeno stood up and stretched. “Boy my back hurts. I’m only twenty-one and I already have a sore back. This police work is difficult.” Zeno said to himself. He straight his dark blue uniform and grabbed a belt from the chair behind him. Attached to this belt was a black handle sword with a long almost round blade. Not many people have swords these days, in fact; Zeno is the only person in the area with one. On another belt at which he strapped to his waste was a silver plasma pistol. (A new gun that was also developed by the now dead: Doctor Jason.)
He walked out of his office and pulled on a long leather trench coat. Even though the city was buried under ground, it was still cold. He walked through the streets as other people and cars drove by. The air was humid for there was no sunlight. Only a never-ending pitch-black roof like thing above them. Old buildings stood around them with many machines and old devices. Some of these long buildings lead to the above world. But nobody ever dares to go anywhere near the highest levels. There was hardly anything clean in the area. No color but black, brown and whatever dark hew was around them. The people have long since forgotten the taste of clean water, the smell of beautiful flowers and the warm rays of the sun. People no longer even know what these things are.
Because of no sunlight and little plant life, there was also very little wild life. The only living animals are cats, dogs, a few chickens and a few fish that would fall from above. Some how the people found ways to live without most of these things. Though, diseases and virus’s were very common. A child couldn’t be born without the chance of being infected. Scientist and doctors have very little medication for the infected. Most of the old research had been lost many many years ago. If the illness were not treated with the first sign, the person would be killed or locked away to die slowly. The so-called government did not want other’s to be harmed.
The government of this underground world is said to be very corrupted. People despise the officials including the police. Many say they are evil, only after what little hope and life there is. Even if there were any life, it would surely fade away in a matter of days. Politics, police, leaders… who needs them? In a world like this, there isn’t anything to steal, nothing to give and no one worth killing.
Zeno arrived at another old building and walked in.
