27. Last Lost Days

V221KA noticed that they were given better food for breakfast too, and Laga had stuck to his word this time, and even did a better job. He usually promises something and doesn’t deliver anything close to it. So this was good, but the other side of that good thing was that they were going to Titan, and things were certainly not going to be anywhere close to good there. It was going to be bad in an unpredictable manner.

“So how will it be in Titan? Will it be any better than what we have here?” asked C1RC221 while biting the fried chicken leg.

“I think that it will be pretty awesome” said V221KA. “All of us will die” she added as she finished the whole plate of fish curry.

One of the prison guards poured more fish curry into her plate. A glass of pine-apple juice was also served. It was as if they were to be given more and more food, and best of the available stuff. After all, Laga had insisted on the same, and it didn’t matter if the prison guards had any food or not. An order was an order.

“Some of us might, but how can you say that about us all?” she asked after making sure that the guard had gone.

“There is no some of us surviving. We are all going to die, either by the atmosphere or by the guards who will accompany us. I don’t think that there will be the need for any of us after the situation is clear for the rich humans to come here and buy property and business to settle here”.

“But won’t those lands be ours according to the international law? Can’t we be settlers and the new citizens on the new moon?” C1RC221 asked.

“Don’t come up with any conclusion according to the little things that you watch on the television. Nobody is going to ask these guys about what they will do in their territory at Titan. To add to that, the laws on Earth won’t cover that if someone knows. There are separate laws written everywhere keeping the loopholes awake”.

“So you are sure that we are being lead to our deaths after being fed nicely”.

“I don’t see a reason why you should doubt that” said V221KA.

“Because we should live”?

“I can’t see from where you got that idea. We were never supposed to go on living. We were to die in war, but that didn’t happen. Now the only option is to die as the guinea pig”.

“But our lives should have a purpose, right”?

“Again thinking according those books you hid and read. No, these authors can write what they want. I don’t see how that can relate to us. They live free and enjoy life, and I don’t feel anything about what they write”.

“No, I read this book from a long time ago. Not those usual books these people read. I actually stole this book from the prison warden. Remember that day when I was punished for no reason? There was this reason. Nobody really bothered though, as it was natural to be punished for no reason”.

“Yes, you might have read that and found some philosophy, but that is of no value. That was from a different world, from long ago, and from another area”.

“But the story of humanity is the same everywhere and all the time” said C1RC221.

“Absolutely not. We are not the same as any other human. We are different; we are lesser humans when viewed from outside. From the moment we reached here, it became so. Even otherwise, there are different kinds of people separated by many things”.

“But this shouldn’t be the end. We should be given an opportunity”.

“The only chance is to try the impossible escape from here” said V221KA.

“Is it at least worth a try? You have seen more of this prison than I have. You should know”.

“Impossible means impossible, my dear. But nothing is without a chance to try. There is always scope in the impossible if we kep philosophy and emotions out of it”.

“Let’s give it a chance, then?” C1RC221 wondered.

“Yes, but before that, there is one thing that we have to make a decision on. It is related to dying here or at Titan. May be there will be an escape route there. Who can predict the future?” asked V221KA.

“So, what about during our run in the morning? We will have some time alone then. Or is there a security gap in the prison itself”?

“Not a bad idea there. I wouldn’t choose a direct escape from the underground prison. This one too is dangerous, but I have noticed a few loopholes there. But do remember that we will have to escape from an island. We might have to swim a long time even if we survive the forest and the guns”.

“Get up, lazy ones. It is the time for your training. You should be full by now” screamed the prison guard.

They were lead to the ground on that deserted island to which an underwater passage from their prison lead, and it was where their daily training was to begin. It was just usual stuff, but for C1RC221, it became new again. It was to begin with the long distance run which stretched from the ground to the fenced area in the forest. It was a possible chance for escape, and V221KA signalled her about the same. It was going to be a dangerous move between the guards with the guns and the wild animals which infested the area outside the fences. But it was still an option.

“This is the day we really become ourselves and decide if we are destined to live. This is the day we will be free” whispered C1RC221.

26. Speech of Death

C1RC221 and V221KA stood in the middle of the central line among fifty such lines. They were bound to each other and the end of the chains were held by guards who held automatic guns. There was special security arrangement which included an extra thousand elite guards with advanced weaponry and electric shields. The old emperor, Laga slowly moved to the podium to deliver his speech.

“I hate this cold. It is like being in a mortuary. Remember when we were trained under the ice floor?” asked C1RC221

“Still the dirty old man, isn’t he? Look at the pride on his face, like he owns everything and everyone” asked an uninterested V221KA.

“Yes, and still the bloody fox that he used to be” remarked C1RC221.

“I am waiting to see him rot in hell, and something tells me it is going to happen soon” said V221KA.

“I hope I can personally send him there. It will be awesome” said C1RC221.

“Silence, prisoners. The great emperor of the Northern Bloc and the destined ruler of all worlds known to man shall speak now. Listen and be glad about this opportunity to see him in person and hear his words” a prison guard announced.

“Greetings, my soldiers. I hope you are all doing well, and I don’t see a reason why you wouldn’t. You are my favourites. All you should be aware that we have a colony to take care of in Titan. For the same, we need volunteers to go there and make sure that the place can be used for human life. Due to the same reason, I am personally selecting nine hundred of you to go and make sure that life can exist there. The rest are rather incapable and we shall deal with them later. There is a chance that you nine hundred shall thrive, but there is more chance that you will die. Yes, most of you are going to die a painful death, but I have my hope that some you shall live by finding a way. After all, you are highly trained super soldiers”.

“No, we don’t want to leave Earth. No way” shouted a man who was instantly brought down by the guards.

“He won’t be in the list now. Think about it, my soldiers. It is near impossible to keep you here as the concentration camps are said to be already decommissioned, and finding you here will destroy my reputation. I am already considered too cruel. It is so much true, but it doesn’t do me any good when gaining allies. The only chance for me to keep my reputation is to send you to Titan where they won’t be able to find you that easily. After all, you are doing mankind and science a favour by doing the same. It is easier now, isn’t it? I am asking a few of you to die, and not to kill anyone – it is an easier job”.

“Please, can’t you just send us home then? There is no war, right?” asked a girl.

“Pleading? Seriously these people don’t understand anything even after so much of experience” murmured C1RC221.

“Send you home? You have developed some sense of humour for sure – I wonder from where you get that. There is no home other than where you are now. This is where you have been living since you had memory. The war is always on, and it is just that it is not clearly visible outside. We are always fighting for control, and another world war can always happen any time. It is in our blood and we cannot live without it. Setting you free is a big risk to me as people will know that you were my prisoners all this time and were experimented on. Free super-soldiers roaming around in the streets is not good. You don’t belong in my bloc, and when you reach your nation, they will have super-soldiers along with some news that will work against me. Am I dumb? I don’t think so. You cannot attribute that quality to me, which is why you have to be dealt with, in a way that is profitable and not affecting us in a negative manner”.

“Leave us alone; let us go; you have no right” two women and five men protested and tried to grab the weapons of the guards, but were immediately shot down.

“Such defiance doesn’t suit you, dear soldiers – especially after this many years of training. You were not trained to riot, but to obey the orders. So please try to co-operate. I have spend so much money in creating you, and won’t like to feel that I committed a mistake and wasted my cash. I have even arranged a special dinner for you in seven days, which you can consider your last supper. You will also have special food every day, and shall be given more freedom, but be careful not to misuse it. Happy last week, my dear soldiers”.

“It is the way of the world, dear” whispered V221KA.

“Meeting dispersed, prisoners” announced another prison guard.

The prisoners were lead back to their cells where the chains were removed. The casualities of the speech were soon disposed off, and Lago was quick to return to the world meet which was to discuss the new additions to the human rights which were to be implemented across the globe. He was to become the leader and in charge of the rights of human beings across the planet, especially the war prisoners. He was slowly becoming a world leader again in politics even if not in the control of territory.

20. Fate’s Weapons

Seventeen years after the execution of Dion and his wife, the same Southern Bloc was no longer under the control of the Northern Bloc, but the military bases of the Northerns remained in the Southern lands, and the former concentration camps were now known as bases for military training for which the Northerns paid a specific amount of money every year.

Among the military bases, there was one, which went very far down the ground like never before, with its world coiled around like a snake and would have been the biggest sky scraper if it was built straight up above the ground. In the middle of those coils, there were a group of rooms, and in this section, there were twenty five and on the left side of the section, the writings on the door read as C1RC221 and on its right, it read as V221KA.

“Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, may God bless you” said the voice.

“Thank you my dear” said the shorter girl to the other.

“It is your eighteenth birthday dear, say something”.

“Are you sure about that? I mean, how can we be sure with our brains so much tampered with”?

“I am telling you, so believe it and say something, make a small speech”.

“I feel that these people will have something to say when they come to know that we have tampered with the camera wires and even managed to steal items from the kitchen to make a cake. Was this necessary? I couldn’t do the same for you on the day of your birthday. I feel ashamed of being not good enough”.

“No dear. It was because you got caught when you tried. This time, it was accomplished by us together. I don’t think that anybody in this prison has suffered like you did when you tried to get me that cake on that day. Such defiance was always going to get you brutally tortured. They had broadcasted that tape to silence the other prisoners, but let me tell you that it did not. They have successfully created a lot of perfect robocops without emotions, never questioning their instructions, but people like us are growing in number. Well, you earned an year of solitary abuse and humiliation just for me. Today, we will earn the same, may be for an year and a quarter, but this time together sharing the pain of each other”.

“I heard that all the concentration camps by the Northern Bloc has been decommissioned officially. May be we will survive, and you can go for that world journey which you always wanted, and I can get married to someone like that guy whose head was cut off for eternal defiance in the men’s prisons. May be we will be people, and not creatures”.

“Yes, concentration camps have been decommissioned, but we are not in one of them any more. We are in a military camp and we are soldiers. We might be walking experiments, but we are also super-soldiers on paper. I wouldn’t deny that though, from the way you almost brought that cake to me and suffered all that torture which no normal human being could have. We are stronger than these prison wardens are, but we are less in number and without weapons, even deprived of our nails and our tooth locked in this smooth covering. Meanwhile, we are highly vulnerable to these special weapons which they hold. We are to be unleashed one day, may be as part of a war or as part of a dangerous expedition to another planet or even another dimension. Until then, we will be grown to become vegetables, submissive to these people”.

A violent burst sent the door to the ground. Five wardens entered the room.

“Prepare Subject V221KA for the extended shock purgation. Put subject C1RC221 in the Ice Age Aquarium for now. Her skin can take a lot, and we shall soon decide to what is to happen to that repeat offender. Until then, a frozen brain and body shall do a lot of good to her. She is becoming my favourite. I should actually kill her, but I am forbidden from doing so. But if she gets killed during one of these torture sessions, I am pretty sure I won’t be held responsible” said the voice through the loudspeaker.

“You are spending too much time together. May be you will love to spend time together while tortured? It would be so cruel of me to separate you, because you are my favourite fake twins. You will like that, won’t you?” asked the warden with the skull mask.

“There are a few other things that we will like. This is only until we get out of here and make each of you suffer. One day, it will be you hoping that you were not born. We have better plans to torture each of you. This skull mask which you are wearing will be your face. And for these things which are your fingers, you can find another name to call them. The Northern Bloc will rot in hell, and this inferno shall be created by our kind whom you have tortured. Yes, I have more plans for you, skullface, and we are still working on it, and so I am not going to tell you more”.

“Fine, do what you want when you go out of here alive, drama queens, but for now, just suffer and learn to follow orders. Don’t part with your emotions though, as you will need it in the torture chamber”.

At the time of torture, they were not alone. Another guy was there, being stuck between two walls of spears and another girl who was stretched. Two dead guys were also there, one eaten by vultures and the other mutated beyond recognition by radiation. There was red light in the room and a fast, dreadful music was there for listening, as if it extended the torture.
