"Let the games begin!"
The crowd lost their minds, the roaring deafened him, and he cursed to himself in annoyance. Retards.. The fools thought nothing of these events, never for a moment believing any of the contestants were in actual danger. Never even considering the danger they were in. Well it did not matter.
Today's games would go differently than they had ever before.
He let the thought roll around in his mind.
Soon these foolish people would find their worlds broken and cracked open, lost in the frantic chaos that would soon come.
He checked the sky, the blimp was almost in place now, the tower team was read to go, and he his team had successfully taken the announcers booth.
He raised his radio to his mouth, "Joey, you and Cassy are cleared to begin the distraction, I want the Seekers off my back for this one, so make it big."
He clicked off his radio before listening to the response, he knew they wouldn't disappoint him, they never did.
Five minutes passed.
A large explosion confirmed their success to him, he checked the horizon. He bore witness to the top half of the capitols' 'Watch Tower' falling to the city streets. I guess that works, he thought to himself absently while he readied the depth charges. He had salvaged them from an old war vessel, they were used to counter sub's in a time long before this one, but a few adjustments made them work as perfect C4. He was rather impressed with the outcome himself, very seldom did a singe explosion destroy and entire city block. These things had extremely unpredictable explosion radii, but that made them all the more fun to work with, they were his babies, and tonight they would light up this Colosseum, setting his comrades free to lay waste to the city. All was going according to plan,he prepped his phase gear and prepared to evacuate.
He looked to the rest of his team, there were three of them., all were allies he would trust his life with. And all of them were likely to die tonight. I really am sorry guys... He shook the thought from his head and checked if they were ready to head out. They confirmed operational status and they all headed to the roof.
The Colosseum measured 5000 meters in radius and circled around the massive battle feild, down their his people fought without reason, only because some damned AI chip told them to. Today he would save them, him alone..
The Colosseum bleachers were filled with his enemies, they rejoiced in the outright slaughter of his people, leaning over the railings, yelling insults, betting on their lives and who was most likely to win. It disgusted him. He would take it no longer.
Him and his three comrades looked over the edge at the display, it was sickening. He stood 2500 meters above the bleachers and he could still see the face of each and every member of the crowd. He imprinted each in his mind and then looked to his men. " Alrighty boys, lets drop em'. "
He launched himself over the edge.
