THOTD series: World Collapse (6)Chapter 6: Among the Rabid Wolves
The whole place is like a very huge dome. It's quite unbelievable to see this place. How can a place like this...this big...exists underground? It feels like walking in to a...greenhouse...only with no trees or real sunlight. The cabins were built in rows and seems to stretch far away like a rode. The air around here...it's oddly cold even with the burning bright lights above.
...What do they call this place again? SS...What does that even stands for anyway?
"C'mon! We don't have whole day!" the soldiers push me with the tip of their guns. Man, this is getting annoying. "What's your cabin number?"
"Guess Clarke and Johnny will have a new housemate." they scoff and...probably sick of me walking slowly so they pull me by the arm and stomp their way to my cabin. They swing the door open and--
"Woah!" I exclaim as I fall down on the cold floor.
---they shove me in.
"You better behave, new guy! The Observers are on thei
THOTD series: World Collapse (5)Chapter 5: Eagle returns home
My head is filled with curses right now. I know it's a protocol but I'm getting sick of this system. SS for Sorting Sector, eh?! It should be ASS for Absolutely Suck System! Daniel went through enough hell for 19 years already and he came out from one hell for another? Well, welcome to our new world, Daniel...
"Hands off me!" I bark at the guard that grabs my arm. "I can walk to the car like a 'normal' guy!"
That's the thing about these SED morons. Normal. They have their own definition of 'normal'. I want to hurl. Normal means that you're not a zombie, that you follow orders, that you are perfectly healthy in both mind and body. If they see a scrawny guy walking by, they shoot him down...because they think that he is infected... If a woman screams from a nightmare, they think that she's crazy. Perfect in mind my a-
"I SAID HANDS O--" I yell out...and see the person who put an arm around me.
"...dad?" Lisa withdraws her arm and
THOTD series: World Collapse (4)Chapter 4: Curtis
The guards brought Daniel in the security booth. There was another tough-looking guard that almost reminded Daniel of Robert back in EFI facility.
"Yo, Cambell! That ex-AMS idiot brought in a survivor." one of them pushed Daniel forward the counter that separated him from the tough guard. Daniel glared back in spite at the guard who just called Rogan 'idiot'.
"Whatcha' looking at, four-eyes?" he barked.
"...nothing." Daniel mumbled.
"Well, well..." Cambell the guard spoke up, "Another survivor,eh? Just one survivor?" the last one was a question for the guard that pushed Daniel. The jerk just smirked and gestured to Daniel. "Just one." he said.
"Ha, told ya that those incompetent ex-AMS whimps are getting bad at this. We rescued like thousands of survivors while they got only a few." Cambell snorted. He grabbed a pen and opened a folder.
"Well, enough of that." Cambell sighed. "Tell me your name, lad."
Everybody looked at the newcomer at the fro
THOTD series: World Collapse (3)Chapter 3: Fuming
The whole situation didn't get any better when the guards trained their guns at Daniel. Rogan was still struggling in G's grip, yelling at them to put their guns away. At least Lisa finally stopped struggling and stayed still. She looked confused when she glanced at Daniel who didn't react to the guns aiming at him. It was as if he got used to it.
Or that was what she thought...
As soon as Daniel let go of Lisa, one of the guards pummeled him at the back and knocked him down on the ground. Daniel froze when he saw the muzzle only a few inches away from his face.
"You brainless idiots! He's NOT a zombie! Dammit!" Rogan barked. G grumbled to himself. ("They're not zombies, Rogan...")
"Put the guns away! Didn't you hear what he just say?!" Lisa screamed. The guards didn't move. "Put them away, you brainless morons!" She screamed but nothing changed. They won't take any orders from her.
"For God's sake, Peterson, tell your men to put their guns down! H
THOTD series: World Collapse (2)Chapter 2: Cold Welcome
"Lisa, wake up." Dad calls. I stretch out and yawn.
"Five more minutes, dad. I promise that I'll--"
"Lisa, we're here!" G and his serious voice always makes me shiver.
I open my eyes and frown. So, we're back to this place that I call the 'World's Largest Jail'.
SED guys are on sight and I can tell that a huge fight is coming...since dad never get along with them. EVER. This is going to be a long night...
When the guards see our car, they lower their guns and let us through the gate. G parks the car and steps out...and sees a couple of guns aiming at his face. Darn guards...
"I swear if any of you make any stupid move, I'll make sure that you all have only an arm to drag yourselves back to your superiors!" G...is being a frightening guy like always. If those guys are AMS agents, they would cower in fear when G threathen them. Dad and G seem to have a lot in common. They really don't like the
