Megalopolis A shining Utopia that is not what it seems
Posted 23 December 2009 - 01:06 AM
In the center, the Capital Building of Megalopolis seemed perfect. Edged and beautiful. A perfect world. It seemed to have a radiance that the other cities didn't. Maverick Hunters weren't frequenting this area anymore, and the Federation Army's attempts to keep peace seemed to be nothing.
This is the perfect Utopia for human beings. The Police officers in the White uniforms are always keeping a watchful eye... The words seemed to echo. Watchful eyes.
On the inside of the Capital building, somebody in a White cloak watched his bustling and great city from his window. A smile wrapped around his pale face, and his beard seemed to look like it was going to crawl off and attack.
At the door at the opposite end of the room, somebody started to type commands and it slid open. A man in a Grey suit looked around disguisted. "You've got some fucked up interior decorators." He told the man.
The Man in white's gaze didn't leave the window. He watched a Few ride chasers fly past. "What do you require now?"
"The group at Neo Forli is back.." He said without excitement.
"So? That brings good news, does it not?" The man asked, now stroking his tiny beard.
"Sir, only one of our men came back. He started babbling about A reploid Detective and an Assassin-"
The man in white jumped around, stormed over to the grey. As he grabbed the man by his throat, he lifted him off the ground.
"You were supposed to be there, correct? And you say ONE survived? Then why are you here, coward?"
"Please, let me explain-" He was gagging, reaching for the man in white's arms. "Forgive me.."
The man in white stared into his eyes, and dropped him. "It's okay.." The white said. He came over once more to pat Grey on his shoulder, but revealed he had a dagger! "Now, time to rest."
He jammed it into Grey's chest, who started to reach out at nothing. "No, spare me!" He begged for the dagger to be removed, so his wish was granted. The blood gashed out onto the floor as he started shaking and moaning from the pain. A pool of red liquid started to pour out around him.
The Man in white moved back over to the window. This was a setback, and he had finally gotten rid of a liability. People like him were not needed in his New World. He looked at a comm on the wall and activated it. "I need a janitor in here please. Somebody got messy." And with that, he put his hands behind his back, cupping them. He walked out of the room as two guards prepared to take the dead body away..

"Price has been eliminated.. His body was thrown into the wetlands and swamps here. Nobody will know.." Stephens insisted, smiling.
"What about the Reploid Detective? Will he be any trouble?"
"If he shows his face here again, we have plans..." That's when he struck Stephens... Even from all of the misinformation he'd given Price and Omicron there was still the mystery person on the I.D. Card the detective had.
Another assassin could be lying in wait.
"Speak up," The Grand-Master said over the holo-projector. "What's the matter, you look as if you saw a ghost."
"It's nothing. Price is eliminated." He smiled. "We can start our excavations again."
The man in the black-robes studied Stephens face. This man had single-handedly betrayed Price Armani and tricked him. But He knew better than to under-estimate the enemy. Stephens was whitholding information.
"Fine. Meanwhile, I have a news report to attend to." The Holo projector shifted to a Fly-by of Abel City.
..And a massive explosion that eradicated the mystery mechaniloid creatures. Maverick Hunters seemed to be caught in the cross-fire of this explosion. They're currently cleaning up the situation, while it's odd the blast was concentrated. Why it targeted the Main Street only is a mystery. In smaller reports, the explosion busted Abel City's water maine. Do not drink any water from Abel City, it may be contaminated. Repair mechaniloids have been deployed..
"Interesting situation." He said.

"Yes, Mr. Saiban." He said, allowing a respectful bow. "You can count on our help, for what you've provided for us!"
"Your organization will be most useful to me and my Order." Saiban assured him, slowly laughing. The Body armored man started laughing, too.
"Well, with what you've provided for me, the United States Government will meet to my demands, as well as the Federation and The European Command." He brushed a part of his armor off.
"Try not to spark World War III, please." Saiban told him. "This trade-off is a good benefit, but the virus was hard to find."
"The Consortium are quite satisfied with this alliance. You won't be disappointed!" He said, as he walked backwards, to the elevator. Respecting this Old man has gained him what he needs.
Cut to - [ Washington D.C.]

An old 21st century semi-trailer truck drives through the hectic traffic of the illuminating city of Megalopolis. Ezekiel rides his truck all over the city, avoiding numerous vehicles compact together within the busy streets, making navigation tedious. He looks at a piece of faded blue paper, reading a request from one of his clients, "An energy cart this size huh?" he asked himself, thinking loading such a massive device may attract too much attention, and that could possibly lead to the Maverick Hunters. Ezekiel then rubs his chin, having second thoughts about this mission; stealing an energy cart as cruises through the bright city, but realizes he loves money too much and so he continues, and steps on the gas.
After awhile driving, a shadow casts over his truck's hood. He takes a glance outside and looks up; nothing but hover cars. "Of course this city is known for having a herd flying cars, So many pollution.." said Ezekiel disappointed. "Ugh....this means the Maverick Hunters could patrol around these parts too." he says. Ezekiel later see's a factory, flashing fainted lights. He smirks and droves closer to that particular area.

The security cameras down below the busy levels of the skyscrapers seemed to zero in on the large package the newcomer was delivering. It's lenses turned, as if zooming in.
Posted 25 June 2010 - 07:56 AM
He shrugs a bit, feeling slightly uncomfortable by the sight of these humans, "Alright....that is just too weird. Better keep my distances between these creeps" Ezekiel said to himself. Soon he reaches towards a large fence built as a gate for a electrical facility. The elephant-reploid shifts into different gears to change his course and speed, pursuing to park somewhere. Ezekiel then looks over his shoulder again as a sudden chill went down his massive body, "Somethings funky is going on around here, feels like I'm being watched" he says, then shakes his head a little to refocus on his mission, "Gotta get that money though..." then parks his truck near a security guards booth.
Posted 26 June 2010 - 01:37 AM
Inside the security booth, the human eyed his package carefully when a message came onto his communicator. A beep-beep that was low caught hit attention. He turned around and brought up his dominant hand to press down on the device.
"Yes?" He waited a few moments as his expression became more tense. "Um, yes sir!" Returning to see Ezekial as he was exiting the vehicle. "Excuse me, sir. What's inside the supplies?"
( to set a mood)
There were several other security booths in the area. Next door to this complex was a large building with a large sign that read NeuroSyn. It must've been a the pharmaceutical corporation that is spread up around the globe. The White uniforms were present there as well, still no sign of any Maverick Hunters and few reploids.

Ezekiel quickly steps forth, showing off his superior size; towering over the human, making the human appear like a mere child."It's probably the new electrical generator I have that set this place off" said Ezekiel, trying to hide his true intentions. "The electric frequency on this baby is higher than your standard powered-generator, so it could probably be mistaken as an energy weapon" He then walks down to the rear side of his truck and clicks off the locks and opens the shutters of the load; revealing what he got in the back of the truck. Ezekiel waves to the human to come over to show proof, "Come on, the generators in the backside, the...uh...this medical company asked for this to be delivered and installed. The elephant-reploid calmly waited for the human to come over, then Ezekiel steps back a little to give the human some space to observe the so-called generator, that is if the security guard ever took the time to look at it himself.
The large reploid clinched his fist softly, readying to "deal" with this human.
Posted 26 June 2010 - 09:17 AM
This area was an industrial complex, in any case. NeuroSyn was just a medical building across the main street. He could tell this reploid was making it up as he went.
So, he walked around the side of the car, examining the vehicle. His eyes shot back to the reploid. "Let me have a look, then." He knew he was perfectly safe. He ran his finger against the edge of the vehicle, then gripped it suddenly. He looked passed Ezekiel's hulking frame, and saw someone in the NeuroSyn building- across the street, in one of the windows. A Man in a bright white cloak, who had a tiny black rugged face. He seemed to be smiling, with his hands hidden. He held out something into view, unveiling both his hands and a large silver cube.
Suddenly, the security guard's eyes were turned a bright silver. He quickly marched around the vehicle, and peered into the supplies...
Posted 27 June 2010 - 12:24 AM
The large reploid then hunched over behind the security guard, making sure he wasn't trying anything funny. "Sorry gotta keep this inspection short buddy...I'm on er...a tight schedule" Ezekiel whispered into the humans ear while presenting his hand behind human ear. Knowing that his physical strength is twenty times greater than any human, he instead forms his fingers into a flicking gesture to avoid a killing blow to the security guards head....Ezekiel slowly reaches his hand out, ready to flick and knockout the security to sleep. "Nighty night...."
Posted 28 June 2010 - 12:43 AM
"Oh, by the way," another voice cut in as a young and handsome man came onto the scene followed by two more security guards, "were you intending on harming Mr. Flecher?" He directed at Ezekiel. "Don't make me call the Maverick Hunters."

The I.D. had an ugly mug shot of him. However the text was neatly printed reading "Mark's Electric Installation and Repair" and the card was evenly laminated around the four corners, plus a bar code with long digits on the back of it. This card made it convincing to most people, though Ezekiel considered this piece of work as his trump card if he ever run out of answers. He stands back and patiently stares at the other three, seeing if they buy his little fake I.D. But before anyone could say anything else he says, "I'm just here to fix the generator of this here building. " he points at the basement floor of the entire structure, "I've got a call from my boss about it, so he gave me the address here. . . I hope I'm not mistaken about this..." said Ezekiel. covering up his real occupation.

He then lowers his arms and tightens his hands into a fist out of anger, slightly frustrated by their constant questioning. He examines around the group for a moment and came to realize something, "I can actually crush these humans with my bare hands alone to get my mission over with, but I'll be labeled as a Maverick and that be the end of my arms dealing forever. . .Dammit I'm stuck on both ends no matter what I do" he thought. Ezekiel realizes the irony of his choice, so he stands there patiently for their answer.

The rolled over the bodies, readying the wrist blades. It was a female under the black hood! She held blue eyes with long dark black hair concealed behind the hood. Her mouth and nose were covered by a dark cloth.
"The assassin!?" The left one lifted up their pike as the other backed away to assess the situation. The Assassin grabbed the weapon-wielder's arm as they tried slamming it down on her. A struggle over who was stronger occurred, besting the man over the woman. She predicted this, then shoved her wrist blade into his gut, shanking him.
As the second to last fell slowly, dropping the pike from his hands, the last White-suited man reached for his holstered pistol She jumped into the air like a panther, tackling the gunner to the ground. He already had it gripped, and it slid out of his hand and against the pavement as she pinned him, and lifted up her right arm with the blade extended. His eyes were wide, along with his mouth, prying to scream for help. She quickly pushed the blade through his neck-"Riposa in pace, bastardo!", ending his life.

She jerked to her left to hear another alarm sounding, probably from the security camera's picking her up. A setback that could be used to her advantage. "You might not have even moments."

Driving out of their way, Ezekiel glances at his rear view mirror and realizes that his large truck could easily be spotted by them. He tightly grips the steering wheel, feeling upset as he headed for the back entrance of the Neurosyn building. "Fat chance the soldiers are gonna catch me if I take too long....Gotta make this job quick!!" he whispered in haste....Soon he shift his gear into neutral and stomps on the brakes to park, but he was in a rush and parked in a diagonal position; triple parking in different spots.
He then jumps out of his truck and unloaded his weapons to get ready for his mission; to retrieve an energy cart and pillage other goods along the way. Ezekiel looks around for a bit to make sure he wasn't followed by anyone, but thinks back about that stranger that aided him, "I wonder why she did that for, helping me?....There's gotta be something in it for her probably? Meh, I'll take my chances" Ezekiel thought as he dashes towards the back door of the Neurosyn building.
