28. The Dark Clouds

The dark clouds were coming together on the sky, the certainty of rain was there. The wind was getting stronger and they could feel the power of nature ready to unleash on the island which has had the history of going under the sea at times. But they were sure to be safe this time as they were the chosen ones to be transported to that heavenly body which was to decide their fate and not anything on Earth.

“Begin the count” instructed the warden.

“Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero. Let the exercise begin” shouted the guard.

“Be good today. This is your last day. Don’t make any excuses or mess things up. Do your regular exercise and go back to your cells” shouted another guard.

As the tides threatened to rise higher and higher, they started running forward. The sea was just like their minds with troubles deep inside and hoping to destroy all which were the opponents. The security was a little less concerned on the day as they knew that anyone who tried to escape on that day would be a big idiot, considering the weather conditions. It was a day with almost no good way out.

“Lets slow it down a bit” whispered V221KA into the ears of C1RC221.

“Okay, but keep your eyes on the right. I shall look for anything on the left” added C1RC221.

“That guy on the right outpost is worth killing. Do you remember that guy who gave us the torture? May be we will get a chance another day” murmered V221KA.

They slowed down as the other prisoners went past them with ease and the cameras were more towards the areas which had more people concentrated around. The outposts had a small stretch without significant presence, and not wasting a second, V221KA pulled C1RC221 and went under the rusting iron railings, rolling to the area under the pavement. They were just slightly hurt as they checked for cameras around.

“It seems that we have got down at the best possible area” remarked V221KA.

“I think it is clear. Lets go” said C1RC221.

“Wait a minute” V221KA whispered as one of the security bots ran through the beach.

The security bots were the smallest among the most effective drones available to the bloc. They were quick and equipped with lethal needles which could be shot from their shoulders. They were used on the beaches because of their ability to tunnel and hide under the sand in case of emergency. But there was no history of escapes or attacks on the island and therefore they just roamed around hoping to use their old needles some day.

“Now” said both of them together as they ran to the beach after the bot was far enough.

They were running at their best possible speeds and almost reached the end of the beach which had an area which looked like a lagoon. They could see three small speed boats there with weapons, as the key to their grand escape. All of a sudden, C1RC221 who was on the front fell on the ground with hands on her nose. V221KA stopped to look for her.

“This sucks. Or may be a lot more than that” said C1RC221 while covering her nose.

“Get up, we are almost there” said V221KA.

“No, you can’t go past that” said C1RC221.

“Go past what?” she asked.

“That thing” C1RC221 said as she pointed straight ahead.

V221KA took a few steps forward to reveal the force field which was set there which prevented anybody from reaching the water. It was transparent, but as she walked near it, she could see the field becoming more and more visible with a blue shade. There seemed to be no way forward, unless may be there was something that could destroy, deactivate or override the force field systems.

“I know what you are thinking. It is made of pure energy. You can’t destroy it. As it is a permanent structure, you can’t even stop or pause it for a moment” said C1RC221.

“How can you be so sure?” V221KA asked.

“It is a deflector shield. This is not the regular force field. Otherwise it would not have harmed us, but sounded an alarm. This is a deflector meant to deflect the animals and scare them enough never to come near the barrier again. A regular force field comes with an alarm and less thickness. I have seen the models on the table of the warden” she added.

“You need access to the control system to pause or stop it, yes. But how can you be so confident that it cannot be destroyed?” V221KA asked.

“It is not made from anything of this world. So it can’t be destroyed by anything on Earth. There are many stories about the new inventions made by the bloc which spreads through the prisons” added C1RC221.

“Come on. This can’t be the end. The boats are there just somewhere within our reach. We have to think of something” said V221KA.

“What are you going to do now? Planning to throw stones at it again and again?” asked a pessimistic C1RC221.

A small team of soldiers were traveling to the spot on the deflector shield where there was some disturbance. The instruction was to check for any deviation from the usual days. A hit on the deflector shield from the inside was surely a deviation and a strange happening, especially because it happened near the beach area which was rarely visited by the members of animal kingdom.

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.
