The temperature was unusually high on this sunny Rotterdam day,especially if Dutch weather was taken into consideration,the several rays of light simmered through the curtains and lit up the hotel room in which Aiden slept, accompanied by the fresh scent of freshly made cakes and coffee but a sharp knock on his door woke him up,his ears then picked up the sound of a female voice with a Dutch accent from the other side of the door saying loudly "Mr Strauss,room service" Aiden immediately darted to his bedside table and retrieved a military knife from the drawer and hid it behind his back while stealthily walking towards the door and opening it half-way in order to stick only his face outside,the lady was surely in her early twenties and had well-styled brown hair and the standard Dutch light eyes,he glanced at her name tag that read 'JANSEN' and thought (She's probably what normal men would regard as very beautiful)
"I didn't request for this,Miss Jansen"
The lady was surprised by the man's blunt and almost harsh reply and to make matters even worse his icy blue eyes made him look even more hostile,after a long pause she managed to regain her composure and said "The manager specifically told me to send this to you" while she spoke,she dragged a table with wheels on her left that was out of view and said "May I?"
Aiden simply nodded and stepped aside while carefully placing the knife into his sleeping shorts and covering the hilt with his shirt,Miss Jansen walked in while pushing the table that had a single covered plate on top "Should I also arrange the room?"
Aiden stared blankly for a bit while trying to remember if he had left any weapon lying around before finally nodding and then grabbing the remote to his room's TV and switching it on,he punched in the digits for the international channel and a live report came in.
TV REPORTER:This is now considered the biggest civilian violent outbreak in the history of modern human kind,with entire communities worldwide indulging in violent acts and flat out cannibalism right in the open before the public's eye.
Images were shown of men,women and children simply attacking other civilians for no apparent reason,Aiden then whispered "These incidents have been frequent in the last two weeks" Miss Jansen who was spreading the sheets stopped and placed her hand over her mouth as the clip showed a lady in Birmingham filming from her apartment as a man rushed out of his house and straight towards a young child who was playing on the street and bit her cheek off instantly.
"OH MY GOD,LET HER GO YOU SICK BASTARD!!!!!!! SOMEBODY HELP THAT POOR CHILD" The lady recording screamed,several people came to the child's aid but the man simply bit whoever tried to hold him down like a mad dog until three men tackled him to the floor.
Another clip from Turin,Italy showed the city centre of Piazza Castello overrun by humans chasing other humans as if in a frenzied state,a sole priest kept screaming from the balcony of his cathedral "LA FINE!!!!!FRATELLI,SORELLE,I DEMONI DI SATANA SONO TRA DI NOI (THE END!!!!!!!BROTHERS,SISTERS,SATAN'S DEMONS ARE AMONG US)"
TV REPORTER:Some sources claim that these attacks may be the sick gestures of a new cult based on cannibalism,the subjects that are captured seem to struggle endlessly and bite or attack whoever comes close,while refusing to speak,some international governments such as Russia,China and Nigeria are already placing the martial law on their states,this is Chad Piper with the twelve o'clock news from World Wide News,stay safe and see you this evening.
Miss Jansen watched in utter shock "How horrible,oh my God,how could people be so cruel to each other?they deserve unspeakable punishments" She said while walking towards the TV and then looked at Aiden with teary eyes but this pained feeling vanished as she stared into his icy cold eyes once again she didn't see anger or sadness,she saw.........nothing.
Aiden stared back at the crying lady and then asked "Is there a problem? you seem upset?" Miss Jansen's face passed from sad to enraged "WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY 'IS THERE A PROBLEM?' DIDN'T YOU JUST SEE ALL THAT-" She suddenly stopped herself and cleaned her tears as she noticed that despite her rant the man was unmoved "People like you sir...... are the absolute worst" She then went back to work.
Aiden still couldn't understand what he had done wrong (Did I miss something?) he thought while walking towards the tray and opening the covered plate but all he found inside was a hard drive and a code written on a piece of paper.
