Gasps, gasps, and more gasps... I've been running for 30 minutes exacts, 30 minutes since I've left Sinny, 50 minutes since the alarm was given. Before leaving, I stole an STP-4, one of the guns of a soldier, a gun that made the fat asses notice someone was escaping from their war. Shit... The more I run, the hardest the snow gets.
Fuck! I think I saw a vigilante! The tree! I have to hurry!
As a trained soldier, I climb up the pine the faster my body allows me. I try to contain any whining my body could let go, before leaving the town a loyal dog stabbed my left leg. However, I've already cleaned the wound, stopped the bleeding, and covered the wound with half of my sleeve. Do all those things took 20 minutes... What a waste.
The dogs bark, the mumbles and slur of human and vigilante are getting closer. The weather is in my side in this operation.
I tried convincing my friends to come with me, but they decided to stay on Sinny and wait to become one of the thousand luckless citizen that have been forcibly sent to the battle flied. I don't understand them, I never did. What's the difference with staying and leaving? We are going to die anyway. I had everything planned since Clerish declared Eunji war for Sinny. EVERYTHING.
-What it is?! -A vigilante screamed to a dog barking to my tree. The temperature is so fucking low that I feel my bones are freezing. Their "thermometer", as I call it, only shows things who have +35,0 of temperature, after all, they were made to hunt the demons, and the surrounding humans only hang off them and don't try to do anything helpfully. For now, I have to stay quiet and hope for that barking shit to be killed. -Human! Go!
-Yeah, yeah... -Fuck, he's going to climb the pine.
I have to move, I have to ignore the pain... The pain is just an... hallucination... Hallucination? Where is it? There has to be something I can throw. Bingo. I grab the bag filled with rocks, I decide to take the bigger one and threw it the more far I can, the rock hits against a pine, a couple of snow falls from the pine where it bumped.
-Go! Go! -The vigilante made signs to the soldier climbing the pine.
-God! Take a fucking decision!
Seems like they are leaving. It was worth thinking about everything, night and day. Mostly nights.
I carefully start to get down the pine, trying not to make a sound. I successfully got down the pine and take back my running.
Fuck... How much time has it been? I don't think I can keep going with only a coat... But I can't risk myself to get a temperature above 35,0. I'm sure I am close from the border, two vigilantes with dogs passed by 5 minutes ago, one thing's for sure, it has been more than 20 minutes. Which means the alert is already in the ears of the Kak's. If one of them see me, I'll be sended to the first line.
Agh! Fuck my leg! I'm fucking losing the control of it, this is the 5th time I fall. I'm sure the wound is rotting... I don't know, I've never had such a big wound in my life. But... Once I arrive to Koty encampment, I'll get it treated. Just a bit more and I'll be free, again.
11 minutes have passed, I've been counting this whole time... I think the wound opened... But my fingers are too shaky to make a good cleaning or whatever the wound needs. I don't even think I'll be able to shoot the gun when the time comes. Yeah, no. I always dreamed with shooting an STP gun, doesn't matter if my fingers are all frozen, I am going to shoot this weapon.
North? South? East? West? I don't know. The compass stopped working 3 minutes ago, I feel stuck on a circle.
The pines are getting scarce, it means I'm getting close to the border. Just a bit-
-7258! Stop right there! Drop the gun! -Is a human voice. Is a human voice... I have a chance. -7258, don't make me repeat myse... -I turn around and shot at him on the head.
I hear how the heavy steps of a vigilante gets closer to my location. The pines! I have to run to the pines!
I got warmth, I fucked it up. I messed my own plan. I'm just a fucking idiot! No wonder they decided not to come with me, because they knew I'll mess things up! Wait, Joseph was acting weird when I told them I was leaving, as if he wanted to say something. Were those idiots making they own plan?! No, did they just handed me over?! Why I'm thinking about this now?!
-N...! -Something is biting me! There's more, they are getting through all my... A stun gun.
My body falls to the snow, I hit my chest with a rock covered in snow. It smells like crap down here.
-7258, you're getting arrested for betraying your country, continent, world! -Right, Sinny is one of the last city that didn't fell over the technology nor is it full of demons, but it is doing it now. The other parts of the world are in ashes, there are no humans in the majority of the countries. But I've heard the machines take care of the found humans. Fuck, why did I have to get born on such a place?
A vigilante grabs me by my hair, a second one covers my head with a bag.
It has been 19 minutes, we are on a big vehicle, because we are going slow as fuck. If I'm going to die, then I want to die as fast as possible. Once I get to the battle camp, I am going to shoot myself, not because I am a coward, but because I will not fight for people that didn't care about me.
A cold hand removes the bag from my head and throws it again. I see how a vigilante offers me a cigarette.
-You're the first one that gives such a big problem. Congratulations, you lasted more than the average!
-Fuck. -Fucking shit, so fucking fuck.
-Put a brilliant face on that smile, 7258.
-It is a "brilliant smile on that face". Dumbass. 7258, I'll give you a cake if I could, but I can't. -The vigilante that first greeted said, with a melancholy tone. -You've been chosen for the Red mission. Where only cripples go.
-Ehem, if I could give my opinion, Eve, the Red mission is so fucking stupid. I mean, we are just giving more power to the "Antichrist".
-I don't want to hear your conspiracy against boss Eunji, Fox. Oh my! Looks like we arrived. Get down 7258.
The vigilantes points at me with their gun and pushes me to a look like concentration camp. The gate opens, and a human decided to show himself.
-7258, get inside and get yourself ready for Red operation-102. You have 30 minutes. Go!
I walk inside the camp, there's no lobby or nothing like that, the first thing I find myself with is a couple of people, half of them have lost parts of their body, the other half have their bodies full of scars.
I walk to a empty locker and open it, the first code I can think about is "7258", and who could have guessed it? It opened. The armor seems heavy... It looks like just like the exterior from a Kak's. Black, heavy, and fucking impenetrable. At the side, I see a sniper rifle with venom bullets. It is half of my size, and it has 5 different sights and 2 different types of shot. Good, because maths are my specialty.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15... I can last 15 minutes with the armament on.
-AHHH!!! NO!! I CAN'T LEAVE! I HAVE TO COME BACK WITH MY SIBLING! -A redhead screamed, he had a scar on his left eye that provided him from seeing, his neck was full of wounds, looks like a glass exploded in front of him.
I honestly was waiting for someone to calm him down, but no, everyone stayed on silence and kept on their own stuff.
The gate opens, the human on black and who had the face covered with bandages, I know it is a mask, appeared once again and screamed: 15 minutes! I'm already ready. Those guys are taking their time, though some of them are understable...
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15. Let's see if I counted them right. The gate opens again, a black bus was on the road, it had the windows with racks.
-Everyone, get in, the ones that aren't ready will be terminated.
Clerish declared war to Sinny, a city in the middle of Clerish's other wars. After Clerish started to get serious, Sinny closes his borders so that no soul can escape from the monsters out of the Clerish's sleeve....
