My name is Lawrence Morin, I was the project lead on some new alien technology that was discovered and taken to Cray Industries. My job was to understand this Bio-Morphic material that was also symbiotic in some ways too. I spent 3 years on the project before Mr. Cray walked in as I was close to a great discovery that would help the world to walk again, remove the need for pace makers and heart transplants. But Mr. Cray had other applications in mind, more militaristic ones.
He wanted me to start experimenting with fusing the technology to body armor and weapons as he had a full suit of power armor there. Mr. Cray has been studying closely to my research notes and knew the potential of this alien technology. He told me to make it work and there was an argument, Mr. Cray took up the bio-chemical compound in one hand and held me down with the other hand as his strength was surprisingly strong, but then he smashed the beaker over my head.
The compound immediately began to go to work however it sensed the other technology near by and began to fuse the armor to my skin. My god did that hurt like hell, as I recall, it burned like acid, as something seemed to be peeling my skin from me. The world went black from the pain, as I could take no more.
I awoke in cell to some water being splashed on my face, as Mr. Cray and his entourage began to question me about the alien compound and where are the notes to make more. This is when I felt smug as his look went from arrogance to fear as I told him he used the last of it, as it could not be recreated yet.
Feeling I had won that exchange but then he told me that would be okay that they will just kill me and use my body as research. It was then I truly felt the danger of how evil this man really was and there was a charge building in me. Mr. Cray walked away and left the dirty work to his cronies.
They were preparing to charge me, I was up, I will be damned if they get me without a fight. The gate opened as they charged in, but then there was a brilliant white light and something began to encompass my skin as I felt power flow through me. It was like sweet honey coursing my veins and I felt much better.
The guards stood there holding their eyes quite awhile from the brilliant light, as this was enough distraction for me to charge by. My speed was incredible; my strength easily surpassed theirs as I broke a few limbs trying to grab me. Oh crap there?s the wall but I go right though it and begin to plummet from 120 stories but something takes over and the decent begins to slow, I figure I am flying and I make good my escape.
That was 5 years ago today, Happy Birthday Shard, Yea Me!? Cray Industries is still open for business, and Mr. Cray is still rich. What have I accomplished? Nothing? Maybe I should retire .....
...but I don't think I can do that. I can't give up and let him win by default. I might be a monster now, but I still love humanity.
