I turn, is he to the left? No, to the right?
I don't know where he is, but I know he spells my doom.
I hear her voice, the girl turned beast...
"Mr. Bubbles," she quietly starts, speaking in two voices,
"Can you hear the angels, Mr. Bubbles?"
I hear the footsteps getting louder... hm, choices.
Searching through my guns, I try to decide.
Revolver, with bullets to pierce his suit?
Grenade launcher, with explosive rounds?
As I think, I hear the thump of his boot,
I must hurry, he'll be upon me soon.
I pull out my shotgun, its barrel strong and thick.
Pressing against a pillar, I check my ammo.
Explosive shells, that should do the trick.
I switch my shells, dropping the extra.
I feel the ground shake under his weight...
Then another noise, a buzzing sound...
I smile slightly, whispering, "You're late"
The hacked drone hovers above me.
My shotgun, my drone... my plasmids, I forgot.
I lower my shotgun and concentrate deeply.

Pulling the door closed behind him, Jack Ryan sobbed, sitting down. He stared at the large, stuffed polar bear, and wearily, strode up the stairs.
"Aw, kid. You look like you're ready to keel over."
Turning around, Jack shrank against the bear. "Fontaine." He breathed. He didn't look like Fontaine, though. His face was different, blond hair falling over his head. Leaning on the balcony, Frank smiled. "Come to settle the score, boyo?" He mocked in Atlas' voice. Jack sank to his knees.
"I just wanted to be safe." Jack breathed, looking up. "This is...I..." He closed his eyes. "Frank...Atlas..." He pleaded, standing up. "Help..." He breathed.
Slumping against the bear, Jack watched as the world turned dark, and he fell into the rising black.
Frank blinked. He'd expected a much more violent reaction from the boy, not for him to pass out.
Then again, he mused, stalking towards the fallen Ryan, with so many revelation

It was nothing. There was no Atlas. It was only the conman. Back from the dead. Jack's hands tremble, it feels as if his genetic code is being rewritten again-it feels like sparks are being shot through his veins and fire is being coated over his bones. He can taste bile at the back of his throat. Not real. Imagination.
That accent that he's become so accustomed to has slipped away entirely. It's He feels cold. Colder than he felt when the plane plummeted into the ocean-how long ago was that now? (There ain't no Atlas, kid. Never was.) The voice is all wrong, too harsh and too mocking. He falls to his knees, despite the shaking of the floor and a cracked sob wrenches from his lips. No. No. No. This can't can't-(Fella in my line a work takes on a variety of aliases)-he can't breathe.

He pushed and staked the heavy crates to barricade the door even when his muscles cried out in exhaustion. Day after day of fighting to survive, fueled only on ADAM and stale potato crisps took its toll on the body. When the task was complete Jack unclipped the small shortwave radio from his belt and set it beside him on the stained mattress as he undressed.
Pulling the once-white sweater over his head, his thoughts drifted to his loving parents still waiting for him back home and how worried they must be with him still missing. The brunette wondered how he could explain all of the extraordinary things that had happened in the past few days; the plane crash, the magnificence of the underwater city, the exhilaration of each plasmid coursing through his veins, and most impor

It didn't matter who he was. This stranger with an oddly familiar face was the last person Kyle FItzpatrick laid eyes on. He wasn't the one who ended his life, he merely stood in the audience, tearing the redhead's attention from both his mentor and the piano he was supposed to be playing. And then everything stopped, a click and a flair of light as the beautiful instrument in front of him was set ablaze by the cruel red sticks shrouding it.
Heart ceasing the beating in his chest, a strange feeling. He had taken for granted the monotonous rhythm for 22 years and now out of pure fear it ended. The instrument and man the young pianist had spent his years worshipping simultaneously ended his life, and the last thing he felt was a splinter of finely polished wood forcing its way through his stomach.

The static of the fight and flurry of bullets can't stop the ache that shoots through Jack's chest. His voice cracks into a yell of pain and he falls forward, all thoughts of the splicers surrounding him forgotten at the lancing pain that's threading from the centre of his chest to every tip of his body. He can feel the sear in his temples and under his fingernails and just under the now-blistered skin of his feet. The sound bleaches out--washes away to nothing but garbled feedback--and all he can hear is the slowing thump of his heart.
Breaking dying, he never did stop to consider that he would--could die in this hell after every Big Daddy charged after him and pushed him into blood clotted water after he had survived each attack he

"I don't want to fight you, Fontaine!" Jack shouts, shooting a burst of lightning at the man-creature-thing. Hell, what was he thinking? Of COURSE he wanted to kill the traitor. But then he remembered that only an hour or two ago this thing was a respectable man, with a family and a reasonable point of view. A lie, but still a man.
"Well that just makes it so much easier for me, then." Fontaine gurgled, his voice containing an echo not unlike so many Little Sisters.
"You might be a murderer, but I'm not!" Jack retaliated, dodging a mad charge from the oversized body of Frank. Once again, he stopped to think about that. He had killed here. More than he cared to admit. All those things, those... Splicers. They were humans once, and he'd killed hundreds of them. And

What if he also watched his underlings to be sure that they didn't do anything suspicious? Also, I felt that some characters deserved a little more love and exposure.

It took a moment to register that something wasnt right; he left for some cigarettes at the local gas station mini-mart and came back to find something odd. Said oddity was sitting snugly within a plastic zippy bag upon his open computer tower. The thumb sized pastel colored shells within had now cracked under the heat of the hard drive, a thick dark substance was oozing between the fractures and collecting into a puddle in one corner of the small plastic bag.
From sheer reflex the red headed hacker slowly pulled the goggles he was wearing up to the top of his head and then leaned over the small bag to inspect it closer, prodding it with his index finger as he did so. One of the oval shaped orbs inside split, gushing out more of the brown ooze inside.

Over a million residents lived within its fortified steel walls, with at least several thousand visiting every year.
