Sometimes I wonder if that moronic boy has a death wish, whatever it's his funeral. But he still had a good point I should be concerned about my family those... things are plenty capable of ending a human being's life. But at least me and, if I remember correctly, Marcus still obeyed the the teacher.
"You think he's going to okay?" He asked the both me and the educator.
"I doubt it, he's probably dead by the time he reaches half way." I bluntly answered.
"Ms. Kapieren! Don't listen to her, I'm sure Mr. Snelheid is fine, and hopefully made it to his family fine." Our teacher tried to feed him optimistic lies. "Hopefully." He softly spoke. There's no way anyone is this naive. "Whatever, look we need to get the hell out of here, we have to evacuate the school to a safer location away from those things until some military reinforcements retaliate those things and drive them out out of here." I reasoned with educator. She softly sigh with disappointment. "You're right, I don't like it, but you're right." She agreed with a grievous but willing tone in her voice. "We should hurry, before those things decide to finish what they started." Marcus heeded a warning to us. He's right about those creatures coming back, we should cut our loses and get out of here. "Follow me kids." Ms. Lars broke the moment of silence and motioned us to follow her out the classroom.
The hallways are in ruins, everything is either, blown to pieces, broken off the walls, cover in dirt, ash, or soot, or on fire. Those things have niche for wrecking things. "We need to split up the cover more ground and look for any and everyone." I spoke the group. "Are you crazy, we're safer in numbers and besides those things will pick us off easier." She opposed my ideals. "But Miss, those things can ambush us easier as well, besides the other students need to be found. It's faster this way." Marcus defending me, at least he's got the right idea. Ms.Lars stood there silently as she pondered and gathered her thoughts on what ideas to side with. "Fine, let's split up, but meet up back at the cafeteria is that understood?" She looked at us to make sure we heeded her warning and not disobey her. We both nodded and with that we all soon departured. We all went to a section of the we picked out, Ms. Lars took the upper floors, Marcus took the eastern wing section of the school and I took the western wing.
I thoroughly searched the rooms for living students they we're either empty and bloody, or not so empty and bloody. After some time wondering, I felt my phone vibrating to notify me on the current situation those things weren't just attacking New York. They're attacking major cities across the globe, Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, and Istanbul, why would they places like those? Damn those monsters are relentless!
Then I heard a spine chilling low growl, I noticed a large shadow engulfed me, I tumbled but I slowly like rusted gears on a ancient machine to face the beast that would end my life. There stood a massive mechanical monster with blank glowing soulless eyes, a massive jaw filled with blade like teeth, large, thick, powerful limbs backed with dagger like rail spike for claws, and it had a look of bloodlust. It roared a beast scream, I scream and start running away from that cousin of death. The monster begins pursuing me through the ruins of what used to be the school. I feel my heart racing a thousand miles, I couldn't think of anything but run away, get away and hide from this killer. I manage to get out of the ruins, I ran to a building but I tripped on a chunk of debris scattered around the vicinity of the area. I hit the ground roughly, it was only worsened when I fell on chunks of rocks and pebbles.
My body ached from the injures I just acquired. I push my upper body with the strength I had despite my arm being in pain. Just when I managed to sit up, a low growl with a breathe of mechanical gas and death exhaled behind my neck. I froze with fear as I knew what stood behind and what it was about to do. I close my eyes and waited for my demise. I heard a crash, crunch, and a wheeze of gas like the last breathe of life was forced out of an unfortunate creatures' lungs. I open my to see if the deed had been done, but I found my body unscathed. I look over to find the very monster, or rather the crushed and mangled remains of it. It sparked and leaked black, and other colored fluids. I manage thaw the fear in me hyperventilating a bit of precious air. I look in my surroundings and spot a black hooded figure he or she seemed to be in a pose that looked like he threw something heavy and he or she seem to be catching their bearings. I looked back to the crushed beast and again saw the very boulder that crushed it. How did that person of a lean figure throw something that massive? The figured fell to their knees in a pant, throwing that rock must have expelled a majority of their energy. The hood was lifted off to get a better breathing, and unintentionally show the figure's face. The figure was a boy, probably no older than an eighth grader, he had silvery white hair, slightly messy but spiky, and he had rust colored eyes.
He was panting but he managed to get get a question out his mouth. "Hey, you okay?" I looked to the scraps and forming bruises on my right arm and leg. "Mostly." I blatantly answered. He sighed and stood up straight after he regained his composure. I looked to the boulder and at him, he doesn't have the body and power to throw something that massive. "Hey kid how did yo-" He interjected a word before my sentence could finish. "Warhen." I paused in silence and stared at him confusion before he spoke once more. "Warhen, Warhen Selbst. Sorry for interrupting you earlier but I didn't have the breathe to use a full sentence." He told me with a candid appearance. I stayed quite and studied him a bit before he extended his hand to me. "Need a lift?" He asked with a chuckle. Oh he's as cheesy as that blonde idiot, but nonetheless I take his hand. As I did, saw him wear a black skin tight gloves or possibly part of a skin tight one piece fabric, he had white metal tipped his fingers, knuckles, the back of his hand with an seafoam green spherical gem adorn on it, he had a space between wrist for more room to more around, and the continuation of the white metal fashioned to look like a gauntlet, though it look it didn't large like it should. I took his hand and with that he helped me up. I brushed off most of the dirt and dust, when I looked up to him I noticed he's taller than for a kid... It pissed me off. I cleared my throat and spoke continuing what I said before being interrupted. "Anyway, how did you kill that... thing?" He seem to act a bit nervous when I asked, but nonetheless he clears his throat. "You wouldn't believe me even if I told you." I simply with." Mechanical alien terrorist are attacking major cities worldwide, I was almost killed by one, and you expect me not to believe what you're about to me?" He looked at dumbfounded before shrugging it off. "You have a point Ms.Kapieren. Just watch." He looked around before looking at large steel beam, he lift then pointed his arm at the beam, he open his hand and a glowing aura made itself know on his hand, then the beam began shaking before rising and levitating. I stared at him unable to process what I'm witnessing. Then in a simply push motion the steel beam went flying and crashes onto the pavment. He just sighed like he preformed a tedious task."Does that answer your question?" I had trouble finding words to form sentence to tell him is that what I thought it was, at the moment I sound like a baby speaking gibberish. "Come you can do it Angelica. Put those words together!" He cheered me on like the idiot I was rudely acquainted with earlier. "Will you shut up." I snapped. "Sheesh okay what's with you?" He asked. I just sighed and rubbed one of my temples. "Stressful day. Anyway was that what I think it was that you did?" I looked at him. He chuckles. "That depends on what you mean by 'it'."
"Telekinesis." I bluntly responded. He smiled. "You catch on fast. I like that. Lemme guess high marks, outstanding performance and achievements and the top percentage of your class?" He guess off like he knew me. "No you goddamn moron." I spat those harsh words to him. He was taken back by my words. "What, but that can't be right my predictions have always had a nearly perfectly correct." He looked like he began questioning his life, looks like he can't take being wrong. "What are you still doing here, shouldn't you be stopping those metal freaks?" He snapped out his trance and looked a hesitant to speak. "I would but." He stopped a bit embarrassed to say so. "I need help.." he quietly spoke. "And this has to do with me how?" I asked. "I begged for other people to help me but go crazy after seeing my powers and run away, you the only one who hasn't run away, please can't you see I'm desperate?!" He pleaded with despair. I remained silent I analysis the situation, the boy is dire need of some assistance and it's true I haven't left him because of his... talents. I sighed and drew my conclusion. "I suppose I can help." "Yes!" He hugged me. I jumped at his unexpected action caught me by surprise my eyes widen and I just look at him crazy. "Hey, back off personal space!" I tried to push him back but he's hugging me tight. Then a warm sensation started filling up my being, at this point I started blushing and started to squirm. "Hey, I said back off!" Then a blinding light burned my eyes causing me to closed them to prevent any damage.
I open my after what seemed like seconds, I was greet to the sight of a screen reading information relay at staggering speed. "What the hell is going on?" I felt groggy and tired like I've been out for a few hours. I saw past the screen seeing my hand I saw a them with black skin tight suit and white metallic like the kid. What the hell is happening?! "Want me to explain?" I heard a voice but I looked around and saw no one. I darting line of vision in different directions but I saw no one for a moment I began to suspect that I was going insane. "You're not going crazy Ms.Kapieren." the boy's voice spoke. "Then where the hell are you?!" I yelled at a possible hallucination. "Well... I'm kind of in your head." He sheepishly answered. "What?!" I both blew a fuse and was shocked. "I NEVER AGREED TO THIS!" I blew up in his face, erm imaginary face. He cleared his throat and began to nonchalantly speak. "You never ask me to tell you what would be the effects, consequences and what you being dragged into." I stood there in utter silence, he was right I never a word what I was getting involved into, I feel like a moron. "What exactly exactly are you?" I stood up on my two legs. "Well, first we gotta get outta here there could be more danger or worse, watching eyes." He spoke in a cautious manner. I looked around to make sure nothing is indeed watching before leaving to another area. "Alright, well you see those monsters that are roaming and smashing everything. Well I'm one of them." He start his explanation. " What?" I thought back to that monster earlier and then to him. "Well there's a reason for my appearance, kinda, you see those monsters you see are a fourth generation soldiers." He further explained. "I'm like this because I'm not in their generation, I'm a first generation model." Wait, a first generation, but why the huge generational gap? "Well, I was high ranking generation like the others." He realized what said he and knew he screwed up. "So there's more like you?" I started to wonder. He knew he was caught and might as well tell me the rest. "Two to be precise, one other high ranker and one that's a survivor of an war." Two other first generation androids I wonder where they are? "If you had a team how come you're alone?" I asked just to make he's not hiding anything. "We got separated when the army started to attack. I know they can take care of themselves but I don't if they can go up against high classes of soldiers." He seemed worried about his teammates. "We should go find them." I proceeded to walk. "Wait really?" He lite up with excitement. "Of course, the agreement for me to help, I don't get anything out of this but I did agree." I responded with indifference with a hint of irritation. "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" He couldn't contain his happiness. I guess this is a good thing.
"Come on Warhen, we have an entire city to look through along with mechanical terrors roaming ramped, this ought to be something." I groaned with agony in the work I have to put in. "'No time like the present' as humans always say." With his quarky quote I start searching to crumbling city, I stopped and looked behind me before continuing. I couldn't shake the feeling that I was being watched and followed.
The raven haired girl was right, a watching pair of white watch her leave. The voice behind the eyes was masculine and intimidating. "So. The traitorous Controller found a partner. It's only those two they won't stand a chance against my massive army, and they especially won't survive against me. So go on and fight, you're nothing but a pawn against an entire set." With those malice words he leaves the girl and mechanical boy to fight against his army in the city.
