A few weeks ago, I was heading to the Floating Island, when I was met by a person wearing sunglasses while holding a 50 Kaliber sniper rifle in a Prawn Suit. She stopped me and asked me a question.
“Do you want to work for me to help release a captive leviathan trapped in a sea base for illegal viral testing?”
“My name is Kaliber,” she says.
“The company that has the leviathan is called Kaliber, which I built from the ground. My former friend and my son work there, illegally mutating creatures for their own needs. First, making metal people for an army. Then, infecting them with a disease. And now, trying to mind control innocent creatures on 4546B. I need you to infiltrate the base and give me information.”
So, what’s it like working for Kaliber to take down Kaliber, while pretending to work for Kaliber to take down Kaliber?
To make things simpler, I’ll call the person Kaliber “Kal” and the company “Kaliber”.
To rephrase the question, what’s it like working for Kal to take down Kaliber, while pretending to work for Kaliber to take down Kal?
However, I needed to be strict. I barely was able to get this job, but the Boss saw something in me. All I do here is protect the base from threats.
I even have this robo-suit that my mind uploads to whenever I put my mandibles into a machine. As long as I’m within 50 m of my body, I can deactivate this and be back to normal. I can also see when I’m in it.
Anyways, I was in that and saw someone about to blast a door open with “Sea for”. “Hey, that’s not safe!” After further examination, I see she has sunglasses. “Oh, hey Kal.”
“*sniff sniff* Sammy, how are you?”
“Fine, I just don’t want you to blow a hole in the wall and flood the place.”
We’re outside of room 73, where subject 73 is.
“It supposedly is a Titan Ghost Leviathan. I wonder how they caught it,” Kal says.
“I don’t know, but the reason you hired me was to prevent this from happening. Oh, let me put in the code so we don’t arouse suspicion.”
I type in 73.
It opens. “All the codes for the doors are the room number.”
An automated female voice says “Warning, Kharaa-infected specimen inside. Entering is ill-advised.”
“I’ll go in and cure him,” I say.
I enter and open the decontamination chamber and continue. After entering the main room, I see the Titan Ghost. It is large and covered in large, green pustules. Upon further inspection, I realize that this is someone I’ve met, and have bonded with.
“Shriek,” I whisper to myself.
I open the hatch at the top and a bunch of alarms go off. I take a large syringe with enzyme 42 in it and plunge it into my ghostly friend. The enzyme cures him almost immediately and I hear a voice on the PA system. I look at the observatory room above and see the Boss and his lackey, Titanium Titan, staring at me. “Sammy the Safety Reaper. Stop this at once.”
I head out of there, grab Kal’s arm, and run.
Behind me, doors close. I stop as one almost cruises us under it, and we’re trapped. Titanium Titan says “I never trusted you from the beginning.”
He steps through the door and walks towards us, transforming his arms into double-edged swords.
“Titanium Titan,” Kal says sarcastically. “Why go to the enemy?”
“Sorry, mum, can’t hear you. I’m too busy killing Sammy.”
With that, he lunges at me and hacks off pieces of the suit. I launch him with a swing of my hand and pry the door open.
“Go Kal, destroy the cage that holds Shriek,” I say.
I feel Titanium Titan yank me back and tear me apart piece by piece. The door is jammed open and Kal runs.
“NOOO!” the “titan” bellows.
The door closes behind Kal.
“Now, I will obliterate this suit, so you will be trapped and your mind destroyed.”
I am 51 meters away from my body. I slowly inch in that direction so I can escape.
“Ahh ahh ahh! We’ve just started.”
He throws me at the further wall and pins me against it. He also absorbs a wall and duplicates, running after Kal.
“Let’s activate the self-destruct sequence, shall we?”
He types a password into my hard drive and red lights begin blaring.
“Have a nice life,” he says.
I grab him and say, “If I’m going down, you’re coming with me.”
I then throw him down and run towards myself as he cries out.
I hate pain. But I’m fine. Thanks for asking.
Because I was 50 meters away, I have a serious cranial migraine.
“Warning, breach detected in Orion Lounge.”
Good, I think, wincing. Time to get out of here.
As I head out of the base, I see Shriek attacking Kal’s Prawn Suit.
“Uhh, Sammy? I think I need help!”
I swim as fast as possible and ram into him and we both tumble.
“Shriek, stop this.”
He hurdles at me and knocks me down, swimming away.
Shriek says, “YOU!!!! You’ll pay for that! I will eat you ALIVE!!!!”
I then see 2 more Prawn Suits fighting each other and try to make sense of it. I then notice the collar on Shriek and try to stab it with a mandible. He swipes me away from it and attacks me.
I then roar at who’s piloting the Prawn Suits and “see” Titanium Titan in one and a stranger in the other.
Titanium Titan has a rectangle in his hand.
The stranger grabs it. Wait, I know him. It’s BlackLord101. I met him a little bit ago
Anywho, he releases the collar from Shriek.
I look at the base and see the reactor glowing and get an idea.
“Shriek, I need to blow the reactor up.”
“Sammy, you can’t do that.”
“I need to tell you something.”
I try to tell Shriek what I’m going to do, but he won’t listen.
“Take care of Samuel…”
“You can't do that! You’ll die!”
“I have to! And no one can stop me!”
I swim to it and prepare for the worst. I hear Shriek following me and realize it’s too late. I stab the reactor.
It explodes, blowing the entire base to pieces.
I am blown back and fall unconscious.
“Sammy, how you doin’? You look like you just died or something.”
“Mornin’ Kal. Ugh, being dead is the worst.”
Kal’s Sea Truck is towing me as I regain my energy.
“So, where are we going?” I ask.
“My base in the Lost River. Also, did you tell your friend the plan?”
“I tried, he wouldn’t listen.”
“Too late now. So, we beat the lackey…”
“Titanium Titan was a pawn in this equation. We need to take out the King…”
