Planetary Auction Square

Hizuno // Euthenia System

Hidden in the Downtown District, a repurposed warehouse was full of potential buyers looking to own something within the Expansion Region. Of course, it was filled with some of the wealthiest people in the entire star system. Some of them were looking for new sites from their businesses while providing colonial opportunities to everyone else. Others were planning on building resorts and turning their new planet into another Las Vegas or Dubai. All of them had the money and means, but who was going to outbid who. Nearly everyone was accounted for thanks to the government's official security force. In fact, the auction square was being run by them. It was part of their plan to fill the region as soon as possible. So far, it was successful.

Another shuttle arrived in front of the square, but it got everyone's attention. Theo Ross exited out of the vehicle and approached the auction floor. He was one of a few representatives of the prosperous biotechnology company, Horizon Industries. Horizon was one of the few companies that began trading with outsiders during the Great War. Soon enough, it became one of the wealthiest companies in the world. But, their position needed to be secured. Just like everyone else, they waited for the remaining guests to show up. Five minutes later, the auctioneer appeared on stage and clapped her hands to silence the customers.

"Thank you all for taking the time to meet with us." the auctioneer smiled and then turned on the hologram, displaying several objects. "Tonight, we'll be looking at the Sargas and Beta Ithacae system. Both of them have healthy suns and asteroid belts. But, the Sargas system has four habitable worlds, while Beta Ithacae only has two. We'll be starting with the Sargas system. Our first object will be..."

Theo listened as planets, moons, asteroid belts, and plenty of objects were being sold. Acoria. Sold to Terra Resorts for 1.60 billion credits. Phorth I6O. Sold to Legendary Mining Operations for 600 million. Donion and her rings. It was sold to Aeon Exploration for 700.92 million. He waited until the ideal planet presented its self. Eventually, it did. Ciamia was the last planet to be auctioned off. It was a stable desert world with two moons. The starting bid was ninety million. Si rose it to one-hundred million. Then, someone else raised it to one-hundred forty million. It kept going up for a bit until it came at two billion.

Horizon Industries and Mustang Arms were the remaining bidders. The auctioneer waited for another bid and saw Theo putting in five-hundred million. The representative of the arms company hesitated for a moment while awaiting a response. Then, he pulled out the bid leaving Horizon Industries the only bidder left. She waited at least ten seconds and then announced, "Ciamia's sold at 2.5 billion. We will be moving onto the Beta Ithacae system after a quick recess."

Theo got up from his seat and headed towards the security guards. They escorted him to a small room, where someone was waiting for them. He was a government worker that oversaw countless planets to ensure they were following government requirements and their rules. In addition, he needed to handover and explain the paperwork to the bidder. Buying a planet within the Expansion Region was easy (if you had the money). However, maintaining and ensuring that it was running flawlessly was a different story. It took at least a half-hour to explain the whole thing to Theo, but he understood the basics.

Soon enough, Theo was outside of the warehouse and got in the shuttle. He took the time to set up a holographic call with the CEO of Horizon, Si. The izien was in the middle of work when they answered the call. "I assume that the auction went well?"

"Correct, sir." Theo responded. "All of the paperwork should have been sent to you."

"Yeah, I just got the notification." Si took a moment to examine Ciamia and read it's brief summary. "What was a useful test site. The two moons are a bonus. Good decision to skip the last audition. Horizon Industries will never forget your hard work, Theo. I will be in touch with your supervisor shortly to talk about your excellent job. Keep it up."

Shortly after the call ended, Theo threw his hands up and cheered on the possible pay rise. He decided to spend the rest of the night celebrating with some friends from work.

1.00 // A Favor
๐—ง๐—›๐—˜ ๐—ฃ๐—จ๐—ก๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—›๐—˜๐—ฅ

"I'm sorry, but he died on the way."

That was what the doctor told James Pierce after his surgery. The news left him feeling numb. He had thought that he was going to break down and start crying loudly. Just like in those sappy movies that Cole always watched. Then again, Pierce wasn't normal, unlike his lover. Cole never deserved to be gunned down in broad daylight. He worked hard to achieve a bachelor's degree in English while working. And his friends and family loved and cared about him. In fact, his entire family was at the hospital, grief-stricken over the news. Yet, they still took their time to visit Pierce.

He felt like he didn't deserve vistiors.

Only forty-eight hours since he woke up that the authorities planned on releasing footage of the shooting. Pierce was glued to the small screen waiting for something significant to be revealed. After a lengthy press conference, the footage was shown briefly of Pierce and Cole walking together in the downtown area. He remembered how Cole was so excited to be outside. Then, the murder appeared behind them with a pistol hidden behind him. That was when the fucker's face was shown. Just before he fired several shots at them. Before he killed... Without thinking, Pierce grabbed his phone and took a picture of that scumbag.

Then, he got out of the hospital and started getting undressed. Both the doctor and nurses protested the decision, but nobody was going to prevent him from leaving. Pierce left the hospital without trouble and immediately dialed a number.

<"Hey, I need a favor.">

<"Pierce? Is that you?">

<"Yes, it's me. Look, I need you to look up someone from me. Can you do that?">

<"I thought you were getting married to that fellow down south?">

<"I'm not in the mood, David. I will send you a picture of someone. And you will search for everything about him, got it?">

<"Sounds serious. Let me see how you're doing over there. I heard-">

<"David.">

<"-it's a great place to start a family. I mean, it was rated number-">

<"... David?">

<"I didn't know... I'm sorry, James. I.. I will get on it now.">

<"Thanks.">

The call ended in silence for both of them. David was a good person, but he didn't know when to shut up and listen. On the bright side, it meant that he was going to get his info quicker than usual. But, he had to wait back at home. Pierce spent fifteen minutes walking home alone with his thoughts. Of course, he was trying to make sense of Cole's death. Of all the people in the world, why did it have to be you, Cole? I should have died instead. Nobody would have missed me. Hell, my family never cared. But I will be there for your family, and I will kill your murder. That's a promise.

After walking for an extra few minutes, Pierce looked up and saw the home that Cole wanted to live in. It cost a fortune, but it was worth every cent. A front yard with the white picket fence and the perfect backyard for birthday parties and BBQs during holidays. Better than a cramped apartment. Now, it was a haunting reminder of the future that Pierce will never have. He unlocked the front door and slowly entered the house. The quietness felt out of place. Cole never was the one to enjoy the calm, always planning some kind of party or gathering. And he was good at it.

Pierce sat down on the couch and pulled out his phone. The lock screen was a photo of him and Cole at a friend's dinner party. He already missed him. Once the phone was unlocked, Pierce checked on new messages for friends that were filled with heartfelt condolences. He tried to read every single one of them. But then, David called. Pierce knew that he had found something on the killer and answered without hesitation. He heard some laughter coming from David. Next, he announced much needed good news.

<"Found the fucker.">

5.02 // Cruel World
๐—ช๐—ข๐—ก๐——๐—˜๐—ฅ ๐—ช๐—ข๐— ๐—”๐—ก

Today, the United States of America was the first nation in the world to denaturalize and bar a superpowered individual. Wonder Woman was given only twelve hours to present herself to properly be escorted. It was all bullshit. She knew that no piece of paper was going to prevent her from saving lives. Yet, she didn't want to give them any more reasons to throw the book. So, she decided to obey their wishes and meet them at the location; however, she needed to take care of a few things. The first thing she did was giving her house to Rachel Keast. Then, Wonder Woman officially announced that she was taking a temporary leave for her organization, World Veterans Federation, and putting Alana Dominguez in charge.

And finally, she paid a visit to Colonel Steve Trevor at the apple tree. He wanted to be buried in front of that tree because his father planted it after buying the land. Of course, Diana went through complications to ensure his wish was secured. She arrived at the site with some roses from the garden and her iconic sword. There was a moment of silence before she was able to speak.

"This will be the last time that I will see you for a while. I only have fifteen minutes left before the government officially has reason to arrest me. I am forever barred from this country... but I won't follow with it. I have to take a stand for people that I have disappointed... and for the souls that I have taken. I need to atone for the things I have done. To take a stand for all heroes before its too late." Diana placed the roses on the grave and faintly smiled. "I want you to feel proud of me again."

She walked towards Trevor's tombstone and planted it to the ground hard enough to stand on its own. Then, Diana grabbed a few rocks and placed them around the sharp blade. "I need to leave it behind. It has been tarnished by death and brutality. I will only pull it out of the ground if there was a threat more powerful than everything else. Until that day comes, can you keep an eye on it for me? Please, my love."

Wonder Woman turned away from the grave and looked up at the clear sky. She knew what was awaiting her there. A massive crowd filled with unsatisfied protesters, calling her arrest. The avalanche of journalists and reporters asking questions despite the silence. After taking one last look at the grave, Wonder Woman took off and started making her way towards the destination. Towards the cruel world awaiting her arrival.




In other news, Empire Enterprises managed to buy the remaining Vistacorp assets with the bid of $600 million. Veronica Cale, CEO of Empire Enterprises, released a written statement about the merger. It said that Empire Enterprises has always "expressed interested in buying the remains of Vistacorp after the acquisition of WHIH News." It will mean that the multinational mass media company will have their hands in security. The statement highlights the company's expansion into security systems as "an exciting opportunity to have their hands on the security market to protect everyone from threats beyond our control." According to several...

Meanwhile, "Wonder Woman: Untold Stories of The First Superhero" remains the New York Time's Best Seller for the third week in a role. Emmett Mueller, the author, has posted on Twitter that he has started working on a book based on Captain America. It will be similar to the Wonder Woman biography, which he will highlight Steven Roger's controversies during the war and the execution of Stryfe. Critics and readers alike have said that...


Edwards Air Force Base, United States

Nearly everyone in the base was watching the live footage of Wonder Woman leaving the country. Some of them celebrated her departure while others remained silent and kept watching the screen. Then, there was General Wade Eiling sitting in his office and working on a report. Nearby, the radio was playing the news describing the crowd's atmosphere. Eiling cracked a smile when he heard the official confirmation that Wonder Woman wasn't an American citizen anymore. Suddenly, the phone rang out loud enough to catch him off guard. The General took a moment to collect himself and then answered the call.

"Hello, how can I-"

"General, it's time." a familiar voice interrupted Eiling. "Operation Achilles has been given the green light. Notify him and give him the folder. We'll talk about it at our next meeting."

Before he could respond, the caller on the other end hung up. Eiling opened up a locked drawer with his key and grabbed the folder of documents. He was surprised that it had finally been approved. Then again, it might have something to do with Wonder Woman destroying an American symbol and killing thousands of innocents. He got up from his seat and head towards the gym. It was the only place where the General ever saw him spend his days since arriving at Edwards. Except for sleeping and eating, he was always seen working out or flying around. Even today of all days, he was spotted at the gym once more.

General Eiling entered the room and saw him lifting weights with both of his hands. Captain Atom, the World War II veteran and former leader of the defunct Justice Society of America, was finishing up when he saw Eiling watching him. The soldier immediately placed the weights down and saluted at the General as quickly as possible.

"At ease, son." Eiling dismissed the sault and sat down on the bench with the folder on hand. "Do you know what I have on my hand?"

"No, sir."

"This is our solution to neutralizing the world's biggest threat before she could strike: Operation Achilles." Eiling said with confidence as he showed Atom the folder. "Before you take this folder, I have to make sure that you're committed to accomplishing the missionโ€”no matter the cost and riskโ€”for this great nation."

"I'm committed to my nation and American interest. No matter the risk and cost."

"Even if that means you might be given orders to kill Wonder Woman."

"Yes." Captain Atom answered without hesitation.

Eiling nodded and then handed over the folder. "Then, you are officially part of Operation Achilles. Welcome aboard, Captain Atom."

Character Differences
Inspired by Bounce and his Steven Universe sheet, I wish to try my hand at writing one of my favorite characters. Yet, I want for Mao Mao to fit in with the Marvel and DC universes thus the incorporation of Marvel's Earth-8311 and DC's Super-Pets and Zoo Crew. With the splash of medieval and modern to keep up with the show's setting. Plus, it would give me the chance to write out someone that has issues from his childhood (with the neglectful father) and how Mao Mao still wants his attention despite his negligent. And to write how this omniverse trip changes Mao Mao.

Brief World Background
This Earth was a universe where anthropomorphic animals and magic thrived. Instead of one defined hero, there were two types of heroes: regular and legendary. Regular heroes were animals that either stuck with being local or haven't achieved legendary status yet. Legendary heroes, on the other hand, earned that status by performing incredible feats while being heroic. There were already several legendary heroes like Spider-Ham, who used his powers to stop Swinester Six from taking over the world. Of course, some heroes had to relies on skills and gadgets. Like the legendary Bat-Hound, who used the night to protect people. In terms of gadgets, some in the hero community saw modern inventions (like bionic body parts and aero-cycles) as a blight upon the world.

Magic existed for thousands of years and thrived thanks to magic users and technicians. Without them, wonders like Ruby Pure Heart would have never existed. The Pure Heart was the rare crystalline heart that sat on top of the Pure Heart Kingdom, cloaking the land for outsiders. Then, there were magic-powered weapons that can do various things, depending on the object. The Golden Spear, for example, pierce through nearly anything with ease while the Golden Hat stored hundreds of objects underneath the brim. The Legendary Golden Weapons were crafted and designed by Shin Mao.

And in a world with heroes, there were going to be villains. There were the Sky Pirates, who were Mao Mao's antagonists, that wanted the Ruby Pure Heart despite it not working. However, there were other villains around the world, like Ducktor Doom and Kingpig.

Brief Character Background
Shin Mao, one of the world's legendary heroes, raised five daughters as successors to the family name. They were taught based on their strengths and weaknesses while treated like royalty by their father. He made sure that they were instructed by him and the best teachers in the world. And he even spent years crafting their unique golden items for them. He spent so much time on his daughters that he neglected his only son, Mao Mao.

Mao Mao spent his entire childhood and early teens trying to get his father's attention. From training to showing off his skills, he tried everything in the hope of getting praise from his amazing legendary father. Sadly, Shin Mao only loved his daughters and never cared about his son. His lack of love got bad enough that he forgot Mao Mao's name. And when he wanted a golden weapon, Shin Mao randomly handed him a katana and dismissed him. Despite all of that, Mao Mao still cared for his father and kept trying to get his attention. That was when his constant need to become a legendary hero began. He thought that he would finally get the respect for the sisters and love for his father.

Mao Mao's first attempt occurred when he left his home during his teen years. During his adventure, he met with Bao Bao and became partners. It lasted for a while until Bao Bao "betrayed" him for the Amulet of Borflagon and left him behind. As a result, Mao Mao lost his tail because a boulder crushed it. The injury forced him to return home with nothing to show. He realized that his sisters already left while his father was working out in the dojo. Instead of saying words or comforting him, Shin Mao only stared for a moment before leaving him alone. That was when he started training harder.

When he reached adulthood, Mao Mao left home again for his second attempt to becoming a legendary hero. He became a nomad that traveled all over, looking for adventures and people who need assistance. It was during his travels that he met with Badgerclops and saved his life. He joined Mao Mao's side and traveled across the world until they accidentally crashed into the Ruby Pure Heart, permanently damaging it. Mao Mao vowed to protect the citizens of the Pure Heart Valley Kingdom for monsters and villains like the Sky Pirates. It was where he and Badgerclops met Adorabat, who wanted to become a hero like Mao Mao.

The trio became known as the Sheriffs of Pure Heart Valley and made their base nearby the broken pure heart. Things were going well for Mao Mao until he found himself in a prison cell. At first, he thought that the Sky Pirates managed to kidnap him. Then, he realized that something strange was going on.

William Russo. That's the bastard that murdered Cole Willis in broad daylight. With my remaining contacts, I was able to piece together information about him. Born to a family of addicts, Billy Russo was placed into the system after his mother and oldest brother got arrested for drug possession and fraud. His father overdosed shortly after losing his whole family. Russo lived throughout various foster homes before placed in the Rosas. His foster family loved and cherished him as if he was their son. It was enough to earn him a spot in their crime family.

Of course, before I tell you more, you need to know the Rosa Crime Family. For almost a hundred years, this family was able to maintain a grip on organized crime across the midwest. Their reach went as far as New York City. However, it was before the government launched several assaults against crime families across the country. And in the aftermath, Don Albert Rosa rose up to rebuild the crime empire. He even managed to reestablish communications with several families in New York City and Gotham City. During all of this, Albert met and eventually married Cecilia Arlotta after having their first and only child, Vincent Rosa.

Unfortunately, Cecilia became infertile after being in a car accident that nearly killed her and Albert. That was the reason why they adopted William Russo.

Now that you know a bit about the Rosa family, it's time to wrap up Russo's background. He joined the crime side of the family at fourteen, then became the family's hitman at eighteen, and finally went international at the age of twenty-one. It was when he gained a reputation for being effective but messy at his jobs. One of his infamous works was the assassination of Toby Dixon, a war journalist featured in the Daily Planet and New York Times. Dixon obtained information of a known dictator that caused him to become Billy's target. Obviously, he was successful at the mission; but, he started a fire that spread several blocks and killed dozens.

Years later, Billy went back to the states to help out his foster family during a tough time. He decided to stay permanently and stood side-by-side with Don Albert and Consigliere Vincent. However, my contacts said that he worked with dozens of crime families across the country. Even worked with a rival family about a few weeks ago. It means that there isn't a clear motive for the shooting. That's where you come in.

Head over to His Majesty Club, a nightclub that Billy frequently visits, and find out why he tried to kill you. Then, you can kill the son-of-a-bitch. I will be heading over in a day or two, depending on the traffic. I should be able to help you with getting the... necessary equipment.


>>file.delete ('russo, william.mp4')

Pierce approached the nightclub and saw the long line of eager customers wanting to take a break for their lives. He knew that the place was going to be busy since it was a Friday night. But, he needed to get inside as quickly as possible. That was when he noticed a group of well-dressed elites walking towards a nearby alley. Pierce carefully followed them and saw them talking to the bouncer. There were about five people in the group, looking forward to celebrating; however, the bouncer stood in front of the door and told them to leave. It was a perfect opportunity for Piece to take.

The bouncer put his right hand up and said in annoyance, "Look, you have to wait like everyone else. It's that simple."

"Come on, dude!" the young man cried out and attempted to convince him. "Tonight, we are supposed to celebrate my friend's twenty-first birthday! You have to let us in, mate!"

"I honestly couldn't care less. Now, if you could just-" the bouncer looked behind the group and saw an older man approaching him. He took a moment to examine the man, wondering if his name was on the list. Based on his attire, he seemed flushed with enough cash to afford VIP membership. The bouncer pulled a fake smile and pulled out his tablet. "Welcome. How could I help you out, sir? Are you looking to join our VIP program?"

Pierce avoided the bouncer's attempt to spend more money than needed and turned his attention towards the group. "Actually, I was wondering if there was any way of letting the birthday squad in and me?"

"Sir, as I said to them moments ago, there isn't anything that will convince me."

"Oh? Are you so sure about that?" Pierce questioned while he got his wallet out and pulled out two one-hundred-dollar bills slowly. He made sure to shake it for a bit before the bouncer grabbed it. Then, he looked down at his tablet to see if there was an unoccupied room. He faintly smiled. "Actually... there is a room available. But, are you sure you want to take them with you?"

Pierce nodded. The bouncer looked over at the ground and sighed, "Tonight's your lucky night, gentlemen. Know the rules next time, and this will not happen again."

Pierce and the group entered the nightclub and saw a waitress waiting for their arrival. She greeted them with a warm smile and guided them to the available room. But for Pierce, he had to find where William was spending the night before it was too late. During the walk, the birthday boy thanked him for paying off the bouncer and even offered a free drink. Pierce couldn't help but smile at the young man's energy. "It's no problem. You only celebrate your twenty-first birthday once."

"At least let me give you a free drink."

"Nah, I have enough cash to buy my own drink." Pierce insisted. "Besides, you should be more worry about having fun!"

The birthday boy chuckled. "I would feel bad for not paying back your kindness... Um, what's your name anyway?"

"Aaron." Pierce properly introduced himself. "Aaron Paulson."

The birthday boy tried to say his name, but his friends and the waiter were waiting for him. "Oh shit! Look, I will make sure you're paid one way or the other, Aaron. I hope you have a good night."

"You too." Pierce murmured to him as he ran over to rejoin his friends. As soon as the waiter escorted them into the VIP room, he went down to the dance floor to start his search. There were dozens of people dancing to the latest trending song about summer love. It brought back memories of Cole and it hurt. He tried to block out the music while making his way to the bar. Taking a seat, Pierce asked for a Blood Orange Jalapeรฑo Whiskey Cocktail and the bartender nodded and began making it. From the corner of his eye, he saw a waiter talking to someone on the phone.

The music made it impossible to hear him, but he could hack into the conversation with his modded phone. It used to be a standard Samsung Galaxy until David got his hands on it. He installed a program that granted him the ability to hack anything connect to one of several systems. As far as the government, they thought that it was one of their dozens classified projects. So they didn't ask too many questions. Pierce looked at the waiter and pulled out his phone. And in a matter of seconds, he was granted access to their phone and allowed him to listen in.

<...did noticed him being paranoid. Even told his guards to fuck off before entering his room.>

<Why?>

<Could be the fact that his face was on the local news.>

<I am surprised the owners allowed him to come at all.>

<You shouldn't be. He helped build this place, after all. Anyway, you shouldn't keep him waiting any longer.>

<Right...>

<Don't tell me you forgot the fucking code again.>

<Your ass is lucky that this is only your third night here. Otherwise, one of the owners would have fired you on the spot. Give a sec to get it... Here it is. Five... three.. zero-eight.>

<Got it.>

<Don't forget this time. I will see you after work.>

Pierce left the call shortly after getting the code and finished up his drink. The waiter grabbed Russo's drink and headed towards a door near the entrance. After entering the code, he pushed the door open and went inside as the door shut behind him. Then, he reappeared a few minutes later and disappeared into the kitchen. Pierce immediately got up and went towards the door. He entered the code and went inside before anyone was able to see him. It turned out that it was an elevator that automatically went down. The ride lasted about thirty seconds before the doors slowly opened, revealing something unexpected.

St. Petersburg, Russia
Several Months Ago

Issue #6.01
Across the United States, millions watched as the once respected heroine left the nation over her alleged ties to the terrorist leader, Stryfe. While the American government plans on invesigating the claim, several cities proposed barring her with New York City being the first in the nation to sign it into law. She offered no comment on the matter. The World Veterans Federation responded only saying that Diana Prince recently stepped down, effectively making Alana Dominguez the new CEO. In other news...

Wonder Woman quietly walked out of the cafรฉ before someone could have spotted her. It had been years since she was last in Russia. Now, she was looking for a ghost. A former acquaintance that disappeared shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union. Dimitri Bukharin, the first and last leader of the Winter Guard. He and the other members vanished once Gorbachev officially dissolved the country. Nobody was able to locate them until now with some outside help. Wonder Woman walked towards the Samson and the Lion fountain and pulled out a gold coin. Before she threw it into the fountain, someone grabbed her wrist.

It was a dying Bukharin, standing there annoyed. "Follow me." he only said to her.

The pair departed towards the edge of the city, where nobody would have suspected things. It was where the coughing fits began for Bukharin. Wonder Woman saw the blood on the ground and walked towards him, offering a hand. "What happened to you?"

"Chernobyl." The former hero answered coldly.

"I thought your suit was designed to withs-"

"Another lie from my supervisors, trying to salvage that mess." Bukharin wiped the blood from his mouth and saw the blood splatter on the ground. "I suppose it didn't matter in the end... Now, tell me why you are looking for me."

A holographic drone view of the protesters occupying Elliot Square was projected in the temporary headquarter nearby the park. A dozen police personnel was monitoring the situation while the captains awaited Commissioner Lawrence and General Griffiths of the Ascia Ground Forces to arrive. Each of them took notes and watched the massive protest. Official reports revealed that nearly two million people were camping in the square; however, the numbers appeared higher than described. Personnel kept on scanning news reports, online posts, and live footage to identify as many protesters as possible. It was when the commissioner and general arrived at the headquarters, still talking about the situation.

"The royalty are starting to worry about the protest. They haven't faded out like you originally reported five days ago. Instead, more and more of the common people are joining in this so-called occupation. You have to end this before it's too late." Charlotte Griffiths finished her thoughts.

"And we will, General." Commissioner Harley Lawrence tried to calm the general down. "We need to be mindful of this situation, or my men will get hurt."

"You should've thought of that at the start, Commissioner. You need to strike them now."

"But what about my men?!" Lawrence asked.

"Your men knew the risk of joining the force. They will understand one way or the other." Griffiths answered with a hint of irritation. "Now if you'll excuse me, I have to-"

"Commissioner Lawrence," One of the personnel called out. "a large crowd is forming in front of the Airwave Building!"

"What?!" Both the General and the Commissioner said simultaneously and went towards the hologram table. It was true that protesters were surrounding the front entrance of the drone company. Their security was outnumbered and in dire need of protection from the police force. Unfortunately, protesters had blocked the roads with barricades to protect their makeshift camp. Griffiths began texting her supervisors on the sudden update while Lawrence started panicking. The captains were trying to identify the leader behind this protest until the drone malfunctioned. That move caught everyone in the headquarters offline. Until another drone was able to take over, their only reliable source was the news. And it didn't look good.

Airwave Building

"We need to go now!" Stella Baxter, the secretary to CEO, cried out in terror while the news was playing in the background. Most of the floors were filled with scared workers, trying to pack up and destroy anything significant to the company. Eli Bernard, the CEO of Airwave, exited out of his personal office with personal bodyguards and met with his secretary. Both of them were critical to the company and its assets. Now, it was time for them to escape thanks to the private elevator. All four of them entered the elevator and waited while it started descending.

"Are we safe?" Baxter asked her boss while watching the number of floors decreasing.

"Yeah, we are." Bernard smiled at his secretary until the elevator suddenly grounded to a halt. The doors opened to reveal that they were the first level. Local security was attempting to blockade the door with anything not nailed to the ground. Protesters were slowly approaching the main entrance with the look of anger, shouting at them. And when they saw the CEO was in front of them, things went south in an instant. The bodyguards dragged them into a nearby elevator and slammed the 'thirty-first' button. As the doors were closing, the crowd managed to overwhelm the security and tried to catch up to them. Thankfully, the doors closed in time, and the elevator started going up.

Bernard took the break to comfort his secretary while one of the bodyguards called for a helicopter to save them. Once they reached the floor, they processed directly towards the other elevator avoiding pleads and questions from workers. On the second elevator, the bodyguards overheard that the protesters broke into the security room. On the third elevator, the pilot alerted them to their arrival on the helipad. In the ninety-third floor, workers were blockading hallways while some of them tried to get their attention. But, their calls had been avoided. And after two minutes of climbing the stairs, the helicopter was awaiting them with the pilots ready to leave.

As the blades began spinning around, the bodyguards went ahead with Bernard and Baxter behind them. One of them went to open the sliding door and didn't take into account that someone was waiting for them inside. Before he was able to react, a man kicked him away and shot him in the head. The other bodyguard raised his pistol at him but was gunned down by a masked individual. The pair exited from the helicopter as its blades slowly stopped spinning. Bernard tried to run, but a nearby gun impact to the ground caused him to stumble.

"Going somewhere?" the man asked him while walking over the dead bodyguard.

"Get away from me!" Bernard yelled at the man while crawling towards the elevator.

The gunman laughed at his attempt at escaping and just tugged him off of the ground with his hair. He grabbed hold of the CEO's neck and said in a soothing tone. "Not so fast, Mr. Bernard. You are needed here to answer the question of the century. What's the biggest drone manufacturing company hiding out in the open? Of course, you're an answer. Your secretary... isn't. So you get to decide each of your fates: Let her live, and I'll pry the answer out of you. Or let her die, and you'll be able to leave."

"What's your-"

"Kill her!" Bernard answered quick enough to surprise the man, leaving Baxter horrified and angry.

"What?!"

"Are you sure?" the man pulled out his pistol and aimed it at the secretary.

"Yes!" Bernard replied again.

Baxter's cries got louder while her attempt at appealing the masked man to help failed. He pulled back the hammer. "Last chance."

"Just do it alre-!" Bernard yelled out in annoyance before realizing the gunman pointed at his foot and firing the shot. He crashed to the ground in agony, realizing that he had been tricked. That was when he started to curse out at the man. "You motherfucker! What do you want?! Money?!"

The man laughed at his offer and grabbed his collar. "No, I want something more important."

Airwave Building

Ylaso // Elia

After taking a lift on the private elevator, the trio stood in front of a secured door. The man ordered both Bernard and Baxter to grant them access. They refused until their lives were threatened once again, which made them comply. The door opened up to reveal massive production lines hidden beneath the city, confirming the rumors. Now, there was the matter of the guest since they had outlived their usefulness. Bernard remained silent while treating his injured foot while Baxter was curled up in a ball. None of them were innocent.

For example, Bernard laid off thousands of workers while raking in millions of credits. Baxter got into her current position by having an affair with her bosses and getting others ahead of her fired. The man already had decided their fates. He approached them and ordered them into the elevator while pointing the pistol at them. Bernard looked at him and said with a sigh of irritation, "You already have everything. What do you want now!?"

"Justice." The man answered.

"Justice?"

"Yes." He walked towards Bernard and pointed the gun at his chest. "Justice for those that you have wronged. Those that were cheated. Those that have to live in this world that you and your friends created. And it starts now."

And with that, Bernard was shoved into the elevator and watched as Baxter joined him inside. He made one last attempt to escape, but the door shut in front of him. Then, it started moving up. They thought that freedom was near until it didn't stop. Bernard tried to stop the elevator, but nothing happened. It was when the doors finally opened to reveal the lobby filled with angry protesters. Both of them started to panic once the crowd saw them and began advancing towards them. Baxter tried to close the doors but it still wasn't working. When the crowd got closer, she and Bernard tried to beg for their lives.

But nobody cared.

Temprary Police Headquarters

Footage of protesters storming the Airwave Building began airing on several screens in the headquarters. Commissioner Lawrence watched smoke coming out of several floors in disbelief as General Griffiths was in the middle of a phone call. He went to establish communication with Chief Superintendent Rory Dawson, who was on the field. But, Griffiths stood in front of him after her phone call. She asked him, "What are you going to do?"

"I need to see what the Chief Superintendent is planning on doing." Lawrence responded honestly.

"I'm afraid that you can't do that anymore."

"Huh?"

"You have failed your duties as commissioner of the Ylaso Police Department. And after talking to the Royal Family, they agree with me and want to personally meet you." General Griffiths explained while two soldiers entered the headquarters with the intent to arrest Lawrence. He backed away and resisted arrest while pledging to do better; however, she ordered the soldiers to take him away. Everyone else in the room was shocked that their commissioner had been fired and arrested. Meanwhile, Griffiths stepped towards the hologram table and announced.

"I will be the acting commissioner until this... protest ends. For now on, I want to be updated on everything and everyone. I promise you that order will be restored, and those insurgents will be punished."

Airwave Building - Underground Factory

Ylaso // Elia

The man turned away from the elevator and went towards the production lines. He started to inspect everything to see if it was going to work. The other man took off his mask and threw it into the bin before following him. He started typing out something onto his augmented arm at lightning speed and then sent it to 'Dusky.' Afterward, he followed his friend further into the factory before finding the office belonging to the CEO. Well, former CEO. Both men headed straight for the computer and began hacking into it. "I hope we find something juicy."

"Even if we don't, we have enough for the sunrise." The man proclaimed before taking off his mask, revealing an early twenties man.

"Liberator! Savior!" A familiar voice called out to them. "Aren't you going to give me the grand tour of my upgraded workshop?"

Savior went to meet their friend, Creator, standing outside of the facility with their arms crossed and a smirk. They were impressed that the rumors were actually true, but it was bigger than expected. Perfect for making a shit ton of drones designed by them. "Congrats on securing the prize, mate. I never thought we would be standing here. Or that the "beloved" CEO would hide something so secretive under us. What a shocking revelation!"

"Good thing you just got here in time to see what he was hiding." Savior guided them to the office and rushed over towards Liberator, hugging him from the behind. It was rather odd that it was easy to hack, but Bernard probably thought that no one dangerous was ever setting foot here. That was he got from not investing in essential cybersecurity for the underground part of his business. So far, he was scrolling pass emails and notes with a lack of interest. Savior asked with curiosity, "What have you found, babe?"

"Nothing exciting." Liberator answered.

"Of course, you would say that." Creator stated to their friend before shoving him out of their brand new chair. They took a seat in it and began reading the emails, realizing that there an exciting discussion taking place. It confirmed that the Royal Family was working with Airwave to deal with the growing protest by producing drones approved by them. One of them was designed to drop gas onto Elliot Square to get rid of the occupiers ensuring their arrest. Another was made for gathering identities of protesters and sending them to the police to guarantee arrest and punishment for going against the monarchy. They pulled out a device from their pocket and set it on the computer, which started making copies of everything.

"Well, I have a lot of stuff to sort out." Creator said with excitement in their voice and turned to Liberator and Savior. "I'll call you guys once I start up the lines, and then I can show you what I have found in this goldmine."

With that, Liberator and Savior headed back to the surface and plan out for the future of this movement.
