There really wasn't anything special about the place, it looked like any other normal house on the street, albeit it was placed on the very top of a particularly high hill. Not many people were seen entering, and even few leaving, but no one questioned it, they never really noticed, in fact. Everyone usually minded their own business. If it didn't affect them in any way, why would they care?
What went on in the house was a little more... peculiar than what went on in most houses. The placed looked normal enough, some signs of life, except for the thin layer of dust coating many of the various objects.
If you dared to move a little farther in, it started to get a sort of... Haunted feeling. Like something wasn't right. It wasn't downright terrifying, like that of a horror movie and whatnot, but just an eerie feeling, but not enough for you to act on.
There is a door at the very end of the hallway, the only thing that was kept pristinely clean in all of the entire house. It was just a normal wooden door, a solid brass handle in the middle and then off to the side, kept almost mysteriously clean of fingerprints.
If then you were still continuing through, the eerie feeling became just a smudge stronger, your heart beats at only a slightly accelerated pace, and you can clearly hear every breath you take.
The air turns cold, and the breaths you can hear yourself take can now be seen, a thin white mist slowly dissolving into the air, as if it were never really there in the first place.
Suddenly, the silence is gone. It was nothing loud, in fact, if it weren't so dead silent in the first place, you may not have even heard it at all.A slight buzzing noise, like the whir of a machine almost. It is a steady, rhythmic pace, one soothing to the ear. Almost as if its purpose was to calm that eerie feeling you had been experiencing.
The white hallway abruptly stops at a door, one that had, instead of a handle or know, a large wheel, like the captain of a ship's, except made of pure metal. There is a hazard sign on the door, and some sort of strange coding for you to attempt to decipher. but the only thing you can decode is the vague skull and cross bones in the dead center.
And if you still have not turned back around, what greets you inside the chamber is much more surprising than what you have discovered already.
The room is large and comprised solely of metal, or so it seems. The only source of light are the flickering ones from above, hanging only by thin wires, as if it would fall and crash on top of you at any time.
And row by row, lined up along the room are... Well, tubes, like they were straight out of a sci-fi movie. Large ones full of a strange green slime you would rather not touch. They seemed big enough to house a human, some perhaps even larger than that.
You tentatively raise a hand and place it onto the nearest tube, feeling the cool glass underneath your palm. In this one, there is someone... It looked human enough, its body shaped distinctly like one, though curled into a ball. It is quite hard to see through the thick ooze in the tank, so you eventually give up and look at the small control panel nearest to it.
"Red" Was all it said, and nothing more. Was it trying to prevent some secret being spilled or similar? But what was there possibly to hide?
You make your way down, there are only seven tubes in total, each having its own control panel, and one word each.
As you near the third tube, you start to realize a pattern. You glance down and quickly affirm your theory. They were all named by colors of the rainbow! You feel proud of yourself for some strange reason, like you have just discovered the ruins of some ancient civilization.
Suddenly, you hear a voice behind you. You would have screamed if not for the fact that you found you couldn’t. Slowly, you turn around, revealing a middle-aged gentleman, garbed in a white lab coat and holding a clipboard.
“Oh, why hello there,” he says, giving you a small smile. “I certainly wasn’t expecting visitors today!”
He turns to the tubes and you find yourself looking along with him. “Ah, I see you’ve met them, haven’t you?”
You nod, unsure of yourself.
“That’s too bad,” He gives a childish pout, “I’m afraid you’ll have to be saying bye now,”
Before you can ask what he means, you find yourself frozen, unmoving, and most definitely scared. If only you had listened to that shiver crawling up your spine only moments ago. The last thing you remember seeing is the man’s face, his smile turning into an evil, insane grin. And then… nothing…
Oh yes, this house was definitely not normal. In it housed seven artificial beings, each named for a different color of the rainbow.
Their sole purpose of existence was to test the limits of human technology. But as time went, on, they developed special powers as an after affect from such experiments. It was risky… but it was decided that these seven would help as undercover agents to prevent disasters with their abilities. Though it seemed like it was all for the greater good… What really happened underneath?
And who controlled them?
No one really knew… So everyone just called him “Boss”.
