The Z3 Project

Post by Mr. Cuddles on Sat May 20, 2017 6:28 pm

[OOC NOTE: You don't have to take part, only if you want to, I'm just in a writing mood, not sure if I'll keep it going.]


The year is 3082, a lot has changed over the years. Many advancements in technology allowing for seamless travel from earth to the moon and back, medicine had a strong advancement as well with many cures for almost impossible to treat illnesses, but some newer ones had cropped due to the wars and environments. The world was prosperous so long ago, now the the government has full control over everything, new laws were made, buildings that once stood tall are nothing but rubble, and most of the buildings are barely standing, but it is where most of the lower class took residence. It got to the place where the main district began to divide themselves away from the outside as they called it, anyone could go into the main city, but they risked jail time for anything. The government was so corrupt a person could be sentenced to life for stealing, or even death depending on how they felt that day. The issue with this is that it also led to many children being orphans, and dubbing them a menace to society because a lot of them were troublemakers. Soon, a lot of the children had turned up missing, many rumors were that they were kidnapped by the government and sealed away, or they were killed because no one would miss them. Sadly, there were even some children who weren't orphans that were taken away, leaving the families distraught and angry at the government for even turning their backs on them. None of the police wanted to bother with looking into it, and there was no way in getting them back.

----------------------------
Waking up being confined in a jail cell, or some kind of cold metal room wasn't where he wanted to be. The young boy felt along the ground in the dark and touched someone else, the kid freaked out and yelled, others started to cry. "Where are we?" they would ask, many were scared, and soon the lights were turn on full bright. Looking around, there were about eight of them were, boys and girls all held up in this same room. Within minutes the door unlocked and in walked two armed guards who grabbed two of the children and rushed out with them, the two of them kicked and screamed. It happened so fast, that the others didn't get to react fast enough. "HEY!" the young boy ran up to the door and pounded on it, others joined him as they started to get loud with their protests. Soon, the room was filled with gas, and they gagged, and choked, and coughed before passing out.

Hours went by, and by the time he woke up he saw the there were only three of them left, one was standing by the door, his hand raw and bruised from pounding on it. The other was a girl who sat in the corner sniffling "I just want my mommy" she wasn't an orphan, she had a mother. While they were out the guards had been taking more children. They were next, and there was no way out. "...Hey..." the boy scooted up to her "My dad is going get us out" "Don't lie to her..." the boy by the door looked a bit over his shoulder at them "No one is coming for us, this is what they do to children who have no families" the young boy frowned "I have a family, I have a mom and dad...they miss me, they love me very much....I Know they'll" "Don't you get it?!" The boy turned to look at them through tears he clenched his fists "THEY ARE NOT COMING! If they were...they would have found us by now...they don't know where to look...the government never cared..." the boy was older, he looked to be about 13. The younger boy was 10, and the girl was 9. The young girl hugged herself, and soon the door opened again, and a guard reached and grabbed the older boy "LET GO OF ME....UGH...ACK..L...LET GO!" he struggled and was giving so much of a fight that the guard slammed his fist against his head and knocked him out. The other goy rushed forward but the door slammed and he smacked into it. The girl started to cry hysterically out of fear, what were they going to do to them?

There he knelt at the door pounding his head on it as his vision blurred with his tears, he just wanted to go home, to hug his parents...and be a kid. Why would they do this to them? Frowning he sat back and raised his shirt to wipe his face, he had to be brave now. His father taught him to not always be scared and face his fears, but what about this? He wasn't sure on what he feared as he didn't know what was to come. Turning to the girl he crawled over and gave her a hug "I'll protect you...I...I promise" he wanted to comfort her, she wrapped her arms around him and sobbed, they sat hugging until the door opened again. It was almost slow motion when the guard walked in, and soon they were on top of them. Both guards grabbed them, the girl screamed and cried, and he reached out for her but as they were taken out of the room he was blind folded, they placed a black mask over their faces so they couldn't see where they were going. Soon her screams were going further way, they were separating them. Moments passed and he was placed into some kind of chair and straps were placed on his arms, his legs, and over his chest. It was a very terrifying experience, it was dark with the mask on, the room felt cold, and the chair was hard and cold it was made of metal. Soon he heard voices, then a voice of a woman with an accent of some kind, she was ordering the guards to leave the words she used to reference the young boy were "New test subject".

His body began to quiver, his nerves were starting to get to him as he swallowed hard to avoid crying, he was going to be tough, whatever was going to happen to him he was going to be tough and get out of here. As he was thinking this the mask was yanked off his head as he sat there squinting, trying to deal with the bright light over him. "Don't be afraid little one" the woman spoke, she was tall, had long bleach blonde hair that was tied up. She wore a mid-to-long labcoat, a black blouse, and black slacks over black shoes, she looked very pretty along with the light make up she wore. She reached out to comb her fingers through his soft dark reddish curls "You're going to be apart of something wonderful" the boy had a caramel skin tone, with dark brown eyes, and freckles across his nose and cheeks. "...What are you going to do to us?" The woman smiled, then took out her clipboard "From now on, you will be referred to as Z3006" He swallowed and looked around the room, his heart rate had gone up, but he was going to be strong. "...I don't want to be here, I want to go home!" The woman pouted a bit and reached out to caress his cheek "Aww, there there now...tell me, what is your name?" she went over to her cabinet and pulled on gloves, then he watched her walk over to a metal fridge. "...What are you going to do?" She reached in to remove three bags filled with different solutions. "You didn't answer my question, well...then again your name doesn't matter, I just like to be formal with my subjects". He watched as she worked on setting them up, he saw her hang them up and watched as she was handle a needle "...I'm not telling you" he frowned at her "If you cared, you wouldn't hurt me..." she stopped what she was doing and raised a brow.

Walking over she stood in front of him for a moment, then leaned into his face "I'm not hurting you, I'm saving you...you'll be the start of a new beginning. You will like it here, there will be many like you when we're done". She took a rubber tube, that was smooth and soft and tied it around his arm, then he watched her rub where she was going to pierce him with the needle. "Please...don't do this..." he begged as his bottom lip trembled. She didn't speak to him this time, she slid the bags over and took the needle and stuck it into his arm. He yelped as it stung, and the fluids started to burn. "Oh...I forgot" she said while taking up a rubber block and pushing it into his mouth "You'll scream even more once I administer the other two drugs" she leaned in and kissed his forehead "So, be strong for me, okay?"

Once she turned the dials, he felt the burn, it was the worst that he had ever felt, she had tied the block around his head to hold it in place, he was trying to scream but it was hard to do so, and biting didn't help, he had bit down so hard that his teeth got stuck in it. Soon, his sobs were faint, his head drooped as he was in and out of consciousness from the pain, his breathing was labored which seemed normal to the woman. Infact she was across the room on her phone relaying information, almost giddy about what she did. The boy looked over at his arm, his veins...his veins could be seen from where the needle site was. the veins were red from under his skin, he was fighting to stay awake, looking up he could see the last bit of fluid. After the woman talked she got up and walked over towards him "You're responding so well, some of the others didn't make it...which is unfortunate". She then pulled the needle out of his arm, and watched as the hole immediately healed up "Wonderful!" her accent was more pronounced, she sounded german. "You are strong, that makes me very proud Z3006!...or shall I say Amadeus" she smirked. The boy looked stunned "H..how did you-" "Know your name? Every person is filed into a database, we drew your blood, and got all the information we needed on you".

While he was trying to make sense of everything, the woman stuck him with a needle in his neck which knocked him out in seconds. Four guards walked in and placed him in special secured shackles before wheeling him out in a chair.

---------------------------------

Hours had gone by, and he woke up to find himself in a different room, it had a bed with white sheets, a desk, chair, a vase with a plant in the corner. There was also a bookshelf with books on it, as well as a television hanging from the ceiling, and there was even a toilet in a corner. Waking up was hard as his head was pounding hard, it felt like someone was taking a jackhammer to his skull. Nausea came at him like a train as he stumbled out of the bed and rushed to the toilet. After emptying whatever was in his stomach, he slumped over against the wall and covered his face from the light. What was going on? Was it all a dream?" There was an open sound, like a sliding mechanism and soon a tray slid in on the floor. There was food, good food, it was a plate with well seasoned salmon, steamed vegetables, some rice, and a small bowl of fruit and some juice. All of it looked healthy, it seemed they wanted the best for them, but like this? His stomach was hurting from hunger, so he immediately started to eat. As he ate he started to think about his parents, and stopped. They were poor, they couldn't afford food like this, and here he was eating food from his captures...Amadeus kicked his tray towards the door and went back to sit by the vase, he buried his face into his knees and started to cry. There was nothing wrong with crying, it was okay to cry when things were bad, it was the only way he could release how he felt at this moment.

Days would pass, and the tests continued, they told all those who made it so far that they were going to be the most perfect human beings. They would ascend to the next level above being human, that they would have great power. Each day, they would put them through trials, these trials were more torture than anything else. Being tied down and shocked repeatedly, they said it was to calm them, keep them from feeling too many emotions. A lot of them had checked out by now, they were like zombies just going along with the flow. The girl he met the first time, she sat in her chair with her head low, her eyes fixed on the smooth white tiled floor, strands of her hair covering part of her face. The older boy from before barely made it through some of his tests, some of these tests pushed on the boundaries of pain, and endurance. Amadeus felt exhausted, it was like something in his brain had snapped, he was starting to see things, and hear things he couldn't make sense of. At one point, death would have been a better option, one of the children committed suicide the other day. He wanted to die, he smashed his face repeatedly against the floor as they were trying to drag him away, he fought and ran himself head first into the wall. The blow was what had killed him, all the other children watched when it had happened, everyone was stunned, but it was so hard to feel sad since it was what all of them wanted.

Today was programming day, they strap you to your seat and force your head back, and strap it in so you can't move or look away. They make you watch different images on the screen, there would be some white noise playing, but they would keep showing these same images, and throughout the white noise certain words were said. Each day they endured this for two hours, then they would all be led to the cafeteria to eat with guards holding their guns, ready to shoot. None of them asked for this, it wasn't fair, but this was their life now.

"Ama...deus..." the voice came weak, it was from the girl as she sat a little ways from him while picking at her food. They gave them special nutrient type foods now, they said it would help keep their brains safe, and allow them to work better. The boy looked over at her as he was trying to spoon the dark green mush into his mouth, he managed to get some in, and ate it. "...I want to go home..." she whispered, then he saw a tear slip down her face. "...Livia...you can't say that...shhh" they couldn't bring that up anymore, some of the ones that kept going on about home were taken and not seen. She quickly reached up and wiped a tear and started to scarf down her food. Amadeus too had to play along, the tests were trying to break them, they couldn't feel anymore, they were making them into machines. Those who held onto their emotions were deemed too weak, and written off, they were taken and never came back, and there was no telling what had happened to them. "MEAL BREAK OVER! RISE!" They were only allowed so much time to eat, and if anyone was caught eating when told to stop, they were placed in an isolation chamber for a week. It was enough to drive a person mad, they did everything to break them. Livia did not stop and kept eating, Amadeus watched in horror as a guard approached "STOP RIGHT NOW!" She grabbed her plate and licked it clean as others watched, soon she was snatched up from her seat. She flailed, and kicked at the guard as he held her firm. Another approached and butted her in the head with his gun, and she was taken away. Amadeus was angry that it happened to her, but he couldn't show it, there was nothing he could do for her.

A full month had gone by, and there was word of what they call the final injection, it was going to "open their minds" and let them know true power from what the head scientist mentioned during the meeting. The injections that were given were catalysts, they sat in their system waiting for that one injection, but that is all they get to know. Once they would be given the injections, the real tests would begin. The television had locked channels, they couldn't watch anything on the news, only cartoons, and carefully chosen television shows. It was a luxury, but what were they to do? He sat on his bed just staring up, waiting for when the door would open and he would be taken away for his needle. Hours would go by, it was now in the afternoon and all he ever wanted was to see the sun, something they hadn't seen since they got here. In that moment of thought, the door opened and in came six guards who pinned him down and shackled him, the treated them all this way to avoid fights. Amadeus was carried out face down, they marched them to a special room where each child was locked to the wall, their shackles were tightened preventing them from moving their arms or legs much, all they could do was wiggle.

Soon the two large metal corridors slid opened, in came the german doctor that had given him his first injections. "Good day children" she smiled as she was wearing a special suit this time, all the guards had walked out and different specialists walked in wearing hazmat suits. They pushed in a metal crate that had frost on the outside of it, they opened the lid and reached in with large special tongs to pull out a red metal box. The doctor had pulled on a shielded mask, and some long black gloves before opening the box "Remember how I told you, there is great power...how, all of you-my children will serve a greater purpose?" She waited till the box was unsealed and reached to take a vial, the vial swirled on its own, something just didn't seem right about. "Years of research, now...I can prove them all wrong! I can prove that it is possible to go beyond the limits of mankind! You are the start of a wonderful thing, history in the making!" she raised the vial for all to see. Of course all the children were scared, but they couldn't show it, they just looked on smothering their fears.

"Now, let us begin!" her words filled with eager.

The other specialists opened a case with special syringes inside, they were much bigger than other needles. The question was where were they injecting it, it left Amadeus feeling very scared. Soon she had all the syringes filled with each vial of this solution, it was going to be a quick long process since she had to stick all twelve of the children. "You may scream if you have" she approached the first one, which was the older boy, he looked right at her, there was a lack of emotion on his face. "Oh, you're so brave!" she took the syringe and held it up to squirt out any air "That's my boy" soon one of the specialist pushed his back and pushed his chin up. She then turned the syringe and slid it right up his nose. The scream that could manage to escape his throat was excruciating, and then he was gagging and trying to scream. "There there now, almost done" she was inserting the needle in through the nose directly into the brain. Once she was done, she pulled it out and his body slumped upon the specialist letting go. They moved down the line to each child, it was horrifying, he could see that Livia was next. She also screamed as it was pushed in, it was probably the worst thing to witness. To hear them scream and for their bodies to go limp afterwards, this wasn't a new beginning, this was a genocide.

Amadeus was the second to last child, it was his turn as she approached and took up the syringe and smiled at him "Ah, there is my brave boy" she said this to all of the children, she considered herself their mother. "After this, you'll love me more" he couldn't make sense of what she said all the time. Soon his head was pushed back, he could feel the coolness of the steel, then the agonizing burning pain that came, soon a loud pop in his head and everything blurred before turning black.

When he came to, he found himself in an isolation chamber, his clothes were removed entirely as he was sitting alone in the dark. But, he discovered he could see in the dark now, this was a surprise, but it was causing him to freak out a bit. His head was sore, but not his nose which he found strange. The room was dark, but he could see his hands just fine, he could even determine color in the dark, this wasn't right. Being completely naked was uncomfortable, he felt violated as he curled up on the floor and hugged himself. The room was sealed, so no light from outside could come in. As he laid there he started to think about his parents, he wanted nothing more than to rest his head on his mother's lap and feel her comb her fingers through his hair, and hum. His eyes closed, and he thought hard on it, soon it was like a dream, he could feel her gentle strumming against his head, and her lovely voice humming. There was warmth, he could smell the food she was making, hear his mother hammering outside, and the wind passing through between the buildings. If only he could just transport his body and go home, it didn't matter if he died and became a ghost, he just wanted to be home with them.

For twenty one days he remained in this room, it was uncomfortable, there was a grated hole in a corner he used to urinate, and defecate in. What choice did he have? Whatever food was given to them, was slipped in a tube and plopped on the floor. Amadeus felt his sanity leaving him, he was hallucinating, see things, seeing people in the room with him. Why would they keep them trapped like this? Or were the others out, but him? It started to play with his mind by day ten, he just wanted to get out. Pushing himself up he started to pound the underside of his fists against the wall in a slow and tired way, that feeling came over him again. Ever since that shot, he could feel himself change, he was able to break things without touching them, the wall was solid, maybe if he thought about getting out. That was it, he could imagine it, and it would happen! Just like it did days ago, he imagined a monster away, which cracked the floor and walls. Stepping back he stared at the wall and started to focus hard on it, soon small cracks formed, he continued to focus on it until he felt a sharp pain behind his eyes. This happened each time he did it, and he hated it, he growled under his breath and stood up to try again. Despite the discomfort he was going to fight and break out, if they were going to use him as a weapon, he was going to be their downfall.


Again, Amadeus concentrated on the wall, the door was harder since it was heavier, with a heavy bolt. He did try on it, but he found it difficult with his mental state. Then he froze, he felt something in that instant, something, someone...Then he felt someone else, it felt familiar, it was a voice in his head, a whisper. The voice was someone he knew, but how were they able to do this? Kneeling he closed his eyes to focus on the voice, he could feel it, feel the words, and know what they were saying. "Fight..." More voices came, and the same words rang, they were communicating, getting into each other's minds. Amadeus tried to find her, he felt her voice. The voices grew louder till each word was audible, they could sense one another, the remaining twelve....no, some didn't make it, there were only eight of them now. The other four had perished, or they couldn't speak. As their voices grew louder and louder, their plan was to break free, get out, and escape their captors. Some, wanted to kill them so they couldn't get anymore children, it was a good plan, but killing...was going to be hard to do.

In unison all the remaining children stood in their cells, they looked to the heavily bolted door and focused on it.

-----------------------------------------

Inside the monitor room, one of the scientists had been observing them with a night vision camera, it allowed them to watch and take note of anything. As each child stood up and stared at the door, he grabbed the phone to make a call. "Dr. Bruhn...it's the children, come quickly" he spoke with a nervous tone as he looked on. There wasn't anything he could do till Dr. Bruhn showed up, she was the one overseeing the whole project, she had to make her call. It was only a matter of minutes till she entered the room with two armed guards "Yes, Dr. Joyce" she walked over to look at the monitors "...How intriguing..." she seemed very interested. "When did this happen?" The scientist looked at his watch "Approximately five minutes ago..are they going to escape?" He saw the coy smile on her face "Escape? They can't even if they tried, I want to see what they will do". She walked over to her com "All guards, report to C deck, do not shoot". Dr. Joyce frowned "Aren't you a bit concerned?". Dr. Bruhn looked at the man "I am, these are my children and I want the best for them...I believe they are ready for their next test. Go ahead and open the doors, I want my babies to know that mama loves them" she looked crazed, she spent most of her time obsessing over them. "...Dr. Bruhn..." the scientist looked on in horror, then hesitantly reached for the button "...I just do-" before he could finished she reached over and slammed the button "YOU WILL DO AS YOU ARE TOLD! I am in charge here!".

Soon the doors opened and the light was almost unbearable since they were in the dark for so long, the children didn't come out right away and backed away. Dr. Bruhn pressed the com button "Remove the children, and take them to the wash room. As for the other four, discard their bodies ". Her voice was cold on the last part, she was weeding out the best, those that couldn't handle it were broken and she had no time for that. The guards went in after the children, but on camera it could be seen as a guard reaches to grab one of the children, but he is thrown back against the wall. Then, the child was tased and restrained before being carried out, the others were done the same way to prevent any issues. As for the guard that was tossed, he managed to get up thanks to the armor he wore, and shake it off just a little bit. The doctor smiled "Perfect...". Dr. Joyce didn't like this, he worked for her as a scientist due to losing his license in medicine so long ago, he wanted to be apart of something revolutionary. This wasn't it, this was playing god, and he thought it was something wonderful, but like this? All he can do now is play along, he feared she could see right through him.
