Unit ID 3X51 Chapter 1 by Anthony Soltero (Pepin I.C.E. Anthology 1/8)

It was a rainy day in a base and unit ID 3X51 was going to get ready for his first mission and getting ready for what is coming to him.  He saw unit ID VX31 in the distance.

Unit ID VX31- Hey are you ready? This is your first mission. 

Unit ID 3X51- Yeah, let’s just get going. 

As Unit ID 3X51 grabbed his coat and gas mask to get ready. He also brought a few weapons for the mission and put on armor. The M.O.T.R (Mod of the Redemption) war has lasted 50 years, and it is still active. 

Unit ID 3X51- I’m in the truck, we can go now. 

Unit ID VX31- Alright, so let me explain the mission, we are trying to take down a Barren unit base to rescue subjects with pitch black skin being held captive there. We must complete this mission and when we do our leader will be glad when we take down one of the bases. 

Unit ID 3X51 soon got to the area and got his gun and was aiming to one of the barren units and the others were getting ready to fire. But then they sneak attack. The others try to fall back, but they fail. Only Unit ID VX31 fell back, and the barren units captured 3X51.

Unit ID 3X51- Hey! Leave me alone, please. I don’t want to die, just let me go!

Barren unit- No, now shut up! We finally found another person as a subject for our project.

Unit ID 3X51- What project are you guys talking about, and why are you doing this?

Barren commander- It is called “Project Plague Bringer”. Our great leader said we need a few subjects to replace the bodies we have lost. We lost a lot of our subjects, like subject 97. She escaped, but her heart was replaced with a plague bringer heart. Many have died during the project, and we kept one because we need her. She is closer to being done and she takes it seriously compared to people like you who want to escape.

Unit ID 3X51- WAIT, WHAT?!? I’M GOING DIE OR SOME CRAP?

Barren unit- Maybe…maybe not. Who knows? 

Unit ID 3X51- I WILL KILL YOU ALL ONE DAY AND GET OUT OF HIS HELL HOLE!

Barren unit- You’re funny.

When they put him in the subject room, they knocked him out and put him on a room.  They removed his left arm and replaced it with a plague bringer arm. Later in the day, 3X51 awoke to see it for the first time.

Unit ID 3X51- WHY IS MY ARM REPLACED?!?

Barren unit- To help make new weapons for our project, now let’s test you with it and if you don’t do what we ask, we will kill you.

As the Barren units started testing out the arm, as they found out it was strong. It gave Unit ID 3X51 an idea to escape through the base. He fires the arm cannon in the blast door and started running and killing the units that try to stop him.
