    The year is 2025.
    Your name is Dave, and you never asked for this.
    Once an office clerk, you were hit by a car and spent three months in a coma.
    Somewhere during those three months, the company Emulsified Electronics found you, kidnapped your inactive body, and put some kind of prototype device into your back.
    You quickly found out that your prototype has given you the ability to manipulate and control machines, albeit with limited success, and the ability to speed up your own perceptions.

    >Dave: This is you. You're 25, and moved across the country at 20 to get away from your parents and their FAMILIAL ISSUES. Also, newly made into a cyborg.
    >Abel Rowling: Your coworker\drinking-buddy. Used to be your roommate years ago before you got him a job at the place you worked, now he's living on his own and taking care of your cat, Ishelda. Is investigating EE for you.
    >Jun Viridian: The late-30s early-40s neuroscientist who implanted you with the prototype, and from what you can tell, was the one who designed it.
    >John Grayson: A strange fellow with implanted arms and broad shoulders. He's less tactiturn than you thought, and thinks you were a volunteer for the Bullfrog prototype. Carrying a smartphoneheadset for you.

    Having just finished the exhibition of your prototype, you and Jun were talking for some time, when out of the corner of your eye, you see something flickering.

    The glass doors of the lobby shattered as something was thrown in, and then the flickering object was thrown soon after; as it loomed closer, you saw what it was- a glass bottle, flaming rag stuffed into its neck. Reflexively, your bullet-time activated, giving you time to plan out your next move.

    Hi, and welcome all.

    Well, I would try to grab that bottle. Don't we have this third arm? It will be mostly unaffected by fire.

    If we don't, well, molotovs aren't that dangerous.
    I would look for danger other than that, then pput out the fire.

    Already moving for Jun, you keep an eye out for the attackers, and suprisingly, see that there's only one of them; It's hard to see from this distance, but they're not very tall, and have long hair- Your first thought is a teenage girl- As you watch, they turn, and start to run away.

    Grabbing Jun, you leap up and skid over the table from earlier's presentation, while your third arm shoves the table over, giving you a cover from the flames that you're sure will hit any moment now. All sorts of futuregadgets fall and break on the ground, and soon after, you hear the distinct sound of a bottle shattering.

    You come out of bullet-time, and everything is hazy and confused, as if you'd just woken up from a long nap.

    Take a peak over the table edge to see how bad the situation is. Hopefully this future building has a sprinkler system. Also, ask Jun if there's a 'saferoom' or something for these sorts of situations.

    "What was that?!" Jun called out. Evidently, she still wasn't sure what was going on. It'd been less than five seconds since the glass had first been broken.
    Wiping the blood coming from your nose, you peek over the edge of the table, and see flame covering all of the future-gadgets, but it didn't seem to spread, due to the lack of flammable materials. For once, that modern 'metal and glass and plastic' decor has done some good.

    Soon enough, a fire-alarm goes off, and the sprinklers start, drenching both you and Jun. You look over her to make sure you didn't hurt her as you moved; Everything looks fine, as far as you can tell.

    Standing up, you brush yourself off, making sure no shards of glass covered you. You look around the street outside, but that person from before was gone- the street was abandoned, and you don't see anyone else hostile. You briefly consider pretending that the water was making your implant fizzle and pretend to die, but seeing Jun's worried look, you decide against it.

    "Oh my." Jun said, having peeked over the table at the molotov. She slipped a smartphoneheadset out of her pocket, and called someone. "Grayson. There's been an incident in the lobby."
    You can't hear his response.
    "Yes, immediately."

    Hanging up, she slipped the headset back in her pocket and looked to you.

    "I've. . never seen anyone move like that before." She said, before blinking and shaking her head "I mean, What exactly did you see?"

    "I saw what looked like some girl throw the molotov." You say, looking out on the street again. Still nobody. "I think we should get somewhere we can't get attacked again, just in case."

    "That's a good idea, but we need to wait for John." She said. Paranoid, you looked out to the street once more, and saw a dark figure quickly approaching.

    You sat back down, using the overturned table as cover from the figure, as they walked closer. Soon enough, you saw it was Grayson. He glanced at the overturned table, and then to the dying flame, and then to you two. "How many were there?" He asked.
    "Just one. I think it was a teenage girl."
    "Hm. Let's go to the security room and check the cameras." He said, leading you and Jun away. Every so often, he waved his hand over a door, and it clicked open. Eventually the three of you ended up in a small room, covered with screens and a keyboard. Grayson logged in, and hit a few keys, the camera screens rewinding.

    "Ah." Jun said, pausing the footage when the attacker arrived. In one hand, the attacker held a small sliver of something silver, and in the other she held the lit molotov. As you watch the footage, she slammed the sliver into the glass and it shattered, throwing the molotov soon after.

    "Actually, no. Since we first moved into the building, there's been nothing like this. . terrorist attack." Jun added.
    "How would you know something like that, anyway?" You ask Grayson, raising an eyebrow. "Who are you?"
    He chuckled. "I've been around a while." He said, deflecting.

    For a moment, you realize that you probably won't have another chance like this to be freely in the security room. You close your eyes and focus...

    "Wait, why? What does that thing do?" You ask, looking from the gun to him.
    "Are you afraid of needles?" He asked, grinning. Then he shrugged again. "All of our employees have small chips in our hands, for identification purposes, and so that we can open some of the electronic locks. For example, I have security access, and Dr. Viridian has executive access."

    You focus on the syringe gun, and soon enough, you see what he means; there are a hundred small points of light, and they each contain ID information. Focusing on Grayson's hand, you see the same thing; a small RFID chip in his palm that claims his ID number is 2441.

    While you're distracted, Grayson presses the syringe gun to your palm, and with a hiss, you feel a slight pinch. "There; now you're added to the system. To unlock doors with your access, all you need to do is wave your palm over it."

    "How much access does this give me?"
    "Not actually that much." He admitted. "You have as much as the basic desk monkey would have- Basement parking, all of ground floor, entrances and exits, of course, and I custom-added access so you can get to your room and back."


    Soon enough, you arrived back at your room, rubbing your hand. Could you. . could you hack the chip? Normally, it would be impossible, but your implant did a lot of things that were considered impossible.

    You sigh, and lay back on the bed. Failure, you think, as you start to doze off. But you think more about that girl from earlier- the one with the molotov. You have a strong, foreboding feeling that you would see her again.

    Your eyes snap open. You are, very suddenly, not tired anymore. After everything that happened today, you can't just sleep like that.
    You sit up, and sidle over to the door. With a glance at where the camera should be, you decide that it shouldn't be a problem, as you wave your hand over the door and slip through, into the hallway of B-3: Augmentation testing center.

    The elevator ride is uneventful- You simply go up two floors, to the basement parking lot, and it stops with a 'ding' that is much, much too loud, and the doors open into a great, underground structure, complete with pillars every twenty feet or so.

    Looking around, you notice that there aren't many cars in the parking lot. But then again, it is in the middle of the night.

    You're about to start jogging when you see something in the distance; A large black van, rolling in, it's headlights off for some reason. You hide behind a pillar and look around at it. This. . can't be normal.

    Peering through the darkness, after the doors open, you see three people- Two large men wearing balaclavas, and the third was one of the men from the exhibition.

    You ping the area with your technospine, giving everything in the area a 'light touch' and seeing what reacts. The van, already disabled, gives off no such reaction. . But one of the masked men do give off a reaction. As you mentally reach further, you can sense that they're augmented to a completely rediculous degree; Both arms, both legs, and you think he may have steel plating of some kind implanted in his torso.

    Seeking for alarms, you close your eyes and focus- There's a small motion alarm near the entrance to the parking lot, but it had been disabled. You keep up the connection so that you can activate the alarms remotely at any time.

    You check your pockets for the smartphoneheadset Abel had handed you, when you facepalm. You had given it to Grayson before to hold it for you. There was no way you could call someone without a device.

    The three men approach the emergency stairs, and the man from the exhibition shakes the handle, trying to open it. Shrugging, he brandished a hand to the heavily augmented man. The augmented man stepped forward, and put both palms on the surface of the door, ready to tear the thing off of it's hinges.

    You decide what to do immediately. As he braces himself, you quickly reach into his augmentations, and with the flip of a mental switch, turn all of them off. His knees lock immediately, and his shoulders dangle.

    He hisses, and starts cussing in a low voice, hardly stopping for breath. Soon enough, his knees unlock, and he regains control of his augmentations- you stopped him, but not for long. This in mind, you activate the alarms- They sound somewhat like a klaxon, the 'brrringing' echoing throughout the building.

    The three men look to one another, and simultaniously bring out rifles, long electromagnetic coils wrapped around the weapons' barrels.

    You focus on the guns they hold, and as time slows, you see them as small points of light.

    Gauss rifles are high-tech weaponry; you need a very specifically designed control chip in order for them to use the electromagnetic coils the correct way. With a simple thought, you do what you can to erode that control- you reprogram the chip to activate the rails at the specifically incorrect times.

    Or at least, you try to.

    You duck your head as a blue pulse of light flies above, shattering the pillar you're hiding behind. All three men are now wearing some kind of goggles, looking directly at you. The man from the exhibition points his gun directly at you.
    "You, bullfrog." He says, his voice tinged with an accent you can't place. "You're coming with us."

    You panic, closing your eyes and focusing on anything you can. Time slows, but you're still panicking, your mind unable to focus on any single point of light. The goggles, the lights, the alarms, the elevator, the augments, all three rifles, you can't decide exactly what to do.

    By the time you're done panicking, they've already approached.

    Your nose crunches as the butt of a gauss rifle smashes into it, and then everything is darkness.


    You're in the back of a moving van, going. . somewhere. Your nose is bleeding badly, possibly broken, and your hands are bound behind your back. The man from the exhibition is driving, and in the passenger seat is the augmented man. The third man is in the back with you, watching you closely.

    "Hey, boss, he's awake." The man from the back said. You try to focus, but you can't hold your concentration enough to do anything. "Should we use the drugs?"

    You hear a sickening crunch, and the car swerves- you feel the entire world spinning as the van rolls, and smashes into something.

    "Hey, snap out of it." A gruff, hoarse voice says.
    "It's not june, it's august." The annoying voice adds on, and then you're carried away somewhere, not together enough to make any kind of real action.

    You come to again in a light room, and a soft bed; the sun rising. Your nose hurts, as does your ankle, but other than that you seem intact. At the foot of the bed are two people; one, a heavyweight man with an augmented arm, and the other, a young girl with short, neon hair of every color that would blind someone.

    You focus on Amy's wrist computer, relieved that the Bullfrog still seems to be working at full capacity. Time slows, and you find yourself looking at a strange cluster of lights, all of them buzzing and moving like a swarm of bugs. Each time you focus on one of the lights, you hear a squeaking voice, saying something different. You hear one asking about who you are, and another ranting and raving about 'space'.

    With a start, you realize that her wrist computer is filled to the brim with different AI constructs.

    You continue to seek around inside the computer, and find a small folder of files relating to the 'investigation'. There are various pictures of the man who had gone to the exhibition and kidnapped you, and another of the heavily augmented man.

    You pull out of the computer, and come back to yourself. "So, who do you work for?" You ask.

    "Oh, we don't work for anyone." Amy says, still pressing keys on her computer. "We're... what's the word, that one word. Like what all those superheroes are?" She tilted her head and looked at Verne.

    "So. . .do I owe you anything for this rescue?" You ask, raising your eyebrow.
    "Nah, that's fine, you don't owe us anything. Right, Verne?"
    "I see. My buddy's coming, so he should show up anytime. Either of you like poker?"
    Amy frowned. "Well, I don't like poker. There would be four of us, so we could play pinochle?"

    You close your eyes, and enter her wrist computer again, reasoning that you could probably learn something from some of the AIs.

    After grazing along the 'swarm' of AIs, you only see three that might be any use. One that is constantly calculating various physics problems, analyzing parabolas, and, you think, would help you with various physical actions, like jumping, throwing, and running.

    There's a second AI who, as far as you can tell, is analyzing various connections of all kinds, forming and dissemniating networks as it moves. This one could help you with your hacking, probably.

    The third AI, suprisingly, is analyzing your facial expressions, and noting your subconscious body language. This might help you tell what people are thinking as they speak.

    > AIs are still quite stupider than the standard human, but they're a lot better at organizing and they're much more methodical than most people are. The more modern smartphoneheadsets contain a simple AI to use as a 'digital assistant', and those are the first example of a commercial AI. They're not considered people by any legal means. The AI inside Amy's wrist computer are basically bootlegged versions of Digital Assistants- versions she'd modified to 'Do Things They Are Not Designed To Do'.

    You decide on learning from the Network AI, and you loom mentally closer, ready to speak with it. . When you get an idea.

    You focus on your own spine once again, recalling that 'Help' program from the first time you used your new ability. With a thought, you wipe that program from existence, replacing it with a copy of the AI of your choice.

    Amy, you find out, isn't a very secretive person. In fact, as you talk to her, you find out her phone number, that Amy is in fact her real name, she lives on the north side of town, Verne is related to her- her uncle, in fact, and her legs were replaced with augments after a car accident removed them completely.
