I had just gotten off an exhausting night at work. Sighing as I sat at the bus stop. Normally, I work at the belagio buffett full time six days a week. Tonight was different though. I shifted my weight as I got comfortable on the bench. clicking my tongue i thought to myself about how pissed I was. Work had guilted me into coming in on my day off saying they had no else is one thing. scorching my wrist on a burner though, that's the last straw. "Whats another scar." I said aloud mockingly, rubbing the bandage on my left wrist tenderly. the sting of the melted flesh started to throb constantly.
The hour was late, and the streets had finally begun to die down. That didnt mean you couldnt still find several drunk tourist making their way through the streets like lost love birds. I yawned, as i reached into my purse for my phone. Might as well see what's going on on Facebook. I scrolled through my newsfeed as my eyes stopped on my girl, jennifer's, post. She had shared another one of those anti- bioweapon articles from newsfeed. This one titled, "genetX under fire by human rights lobbiyst". I reluctantly began to read half heartingly.
"genetx under fire by human rights lobbiyst by Sarah collins april 27, 2021
It was five year ago today that the global bio-company known as genetx made the first and only genetic bioweapon the parasite 1-xb. the holy grail of this century was created by their leading scientist, dr. samantha porter. An absolute genius dr. Porter graduated from Harvard at the young age of 17 and immediately hired as genetx's lead reasearcher. The 1-xb she designed is a parasite modified from the parasite toxoplasma ghondi, a mind altering parasite in its natural state. The 1-xbs objective is simple to invade a host and excrete a highly mutagenic compound that forces a hastened evolution. its highly unstable and impossible to predict how it will react on different species. every species reacts differently, but the result is the same a mindless killing machine. Slaves to genetx and our government".
I began to skim through trying to find where they finally got on topic. bored of the usual anti bioweapons bs that's been going around.
"its thanks to this innovation that two years prior president Donald trump squashed the worries of wwiii by passing the bioweapon rights act. This act allowed the government and the us government alone the right to use the 1-xbs as weapons of peace. This meant that any form of hostilities that where to be directed at the united nations or the states themselves. At the same time this gave genetx the liberaty to experiment only bound by one law. That no human would ever be subjected to 1-xbAs of march 14, 2021, 17 marines where injured and 3 causilties on a routine mission in north Korea. rumors claim that their were human bioweapons that dna sequencing has confirmed to be infected with 1-xb. The government and genetx are quick to deny these claims, with all twelve genetx facilities confirmed to be under investigated. There have been rumors that another location was being constructed and abondoned in the mohave desert. However there is no evidence to back this claim of this theory. Ceo hiro misaki has gone on record stating, "we are quick at work investigating any possible leaks of the 1-xb variants. We have always upheld to the strict guidelines provided by the B.R. Act and will continue to cooperate for world peace". THis has not stopped the mass media to latch on to the... ".
the shriek of some poor girl scared the crap out of me making me jump in my seat. I looked up to see a fit girl dressed in party clothes across the street. She looked to be in her late teens, the darkness making it difficult to really make out any details. flailing desperatly to get away from her three assailants. she manged to donkey kick one square in the chest as another pgrabbed her up from behind lifting her into the air.
no one else was in site I had to act quickly or who knows what would happen to the poor girl. I began calling 911 my hands shaking uncontrollably as i dialed the buttons. I tried to wait for an answer but there was no time. I had to help her now. I dashed across the street frantically waving my phone in the air but I was to late. They must of done something to her as she had gone limp. they threw here in a windowless mercedes utility van with no logos or even plates.
as i ran up grabbing one of the assaliants i tried with all my might to hold him back. "Hey assholes I called the cops!" I screamed hoping they'd panic and let her go. Instead, I was greeted with the butt of a gun smashing down across the back of my skull. my mind went blank as I fell to my knees. my vision blurred, I slowly looked up my eyes wide. The man pointed the barrel of a glock 17 at me. cursing myself for trying to be a hero i made a move for the gun.
The lifeless body of danelle baker was found by the Vegas police department 40 minutes later. Her whole head blown to pieces as the night came to a close. Brain matter still trickling down the side of Caesar's palace.
Awaken to a world of secrets and experimentation in this soon to be comic as science breaks free creating horrific creatures under the mohave desert. One man must find his way to escape to the surface but he is not alone.
