The TV screen flickered. On it, a grainy, black and white screen displaying the side of a street. Several black SUVs suddenly pulled up on the side of the street, blocking off the entire street. Men in black suits began spilling from the vans, guns drawn. They turned their attention to something off screen, and regular people could be seen running away in panic. The men in the black began firing at something off the screen. Something began firing in return, bullets could clearly be seen firing back at the men, who ducked out of the way quickly in fear.
One of the enemy bullets struck one of the cars and it suddenly blew up. Smoke filled the screen. In it all a dark figure could be seen walking through the smoke, more bullets flew but something seemed to be deflecting them, a strange glowing light appearing through the cloud. It stopped, and appeared to turn slightly. There was no way to depict anything about the figure, except that it appeared to be rather short. There was a moment of pause and suddenly the figure jumped and was gone. A second later the screen cut out and was replaced by static.
The flat screen was switched off and a woman who appeared to be in her early thirties stepped in front of it as the lights slowly faded back on. She was in a smart looking three piece suit, holding a clip board in her arm, her sandy blonde hair pinned up into a bun on her head. “The footage you just saw was taken from a security camera in East Campton. It shows a confrontation little over a week ago between our men and Subject Angel.” She said simply, looking up and to the man sitting in the chair in front of her.
“As you can see, Subject Angel is an extremely destructive force. It must be dealt with as soon as possible. You, are Subject 2 6 8, and it will be your mission to seek Angel out, and secure it. It is a matter of the utmost national security that it be retrieved. Now, Angel has some strange abilities, most of which we are unsure of as of yet. That is why you shall be undergoing a series of upgrades over the next few days, which will allow you to stand up to Angel. They will make you faster, stronger, your senses sharper and yourself more proficient with any kind of weapon you may find yourself needing.”
She stopped for a moment and looked up once more, studying the man before you. “You have been chosen, because you have shown fierce loyalty to the military through your service, as well as excellent marks in every field you undertake. You, are subject 2 6 8. Do you accept this mission?” She snapped the clipboard closed and looked up once more. There was a clear tone in her voice that signalled that there was no room for questions here.
