Chapter 01 – Sparks of Life
A scientist woke up atop a glass desktop. The screen lit up leaving a bright blue glow into the man’s eye, startling him awake. He looked down to see the strand of genetic code he had been modifying through the software on his computer.
He shook his head a bit and rubbed his eyes. He brushed a strand of gray hair that managed to glue itself onto his face from his breathing on the glass. Some drool had collected on the corner of his lip, which he wiped off using his lab coat sleeve.
This was William Collin, a scientist in the New Atlantis regime. He had spent much his time researching genetic code and implementing his findings in laboratory experiments. His most recent projects being the Electrically Dynamic Gadget Experiments or EDGE for short.
