The Mind Chronicles (Volume VIII) – Chillen With The Mind
Chillen with The Mind;
FAIRBANKS, ALASKA – DECEMBER, THE YEAR 2075
ABRAHAM BENDO TOWER
The Abraham Bendo Building is taking a beating from the Snow Storm outside. Visibility is nil.
DAY 37 – THE MIND COMPU-JOURNAL
Ah where was I… Oh yes, it’s only a matter of hours before the Mutant-Cide Robotic, or M.C.R. 1, will be complete. I will then transplant, configure and integrate the Caraboon Weapon, and she’ll be ready to role.
The whole thing seems rather Barbaric in approach, and I’m sure Canada 6 will send their lowly Mounty E.I.P., or Earth Inhabitant Police, after me… But by then I will have had a decent test, and taken out a thousand Mutants or so along the way.
Nuff said… Mind out
ABRAHAM BENDO TOWER – MEDICAL ROOM
Jarod Black opens his eyes, vision blurred, almost naked, laid out on some sort of medical bed.
As he looks down he sees that his Mechanical Cyborg Arm has been revealed, and there are several bandages all over his body from where shrapnel has been removed.
As his vision slowly returns, he tries to sit up, but finds he can’t as his head throbs profusely…
“Sorry old man, I’m afraid I’m at fault for your injuries…” The Mind speaks as he enters the medical chamber holding a glass of scotch and hands it to Jarod.
“I can’t sit up” Jarod replies. “My head”.
“Right…” The Mind then sits down the drink near Jarod’s bed.
“I’m afraid I set the Wreck-Bots to fire 10yds from targets, but did not account for Mechanical Horses being laid out as blockades you see…” The Mind explains.
“Sorry about your horse by the way… Did he have a name?” The Mind questions half heartedly.
“Johnny… Johnny Carson” Jarod manages.
“HaHa!! That is clever… Pretty cool chap that one…” the Mind replies.
“And it wasn’t your fault… The N One gifted this whole Zone to you… We were trespassing” Jarod speaks, unable to keep his eyes open because of the pain in his head.
“True enough… Still, with as few humans as we have left, it’s not exactly in the best interest of any of us to “Blow Up” one another needlessly, Ha…” The Mind finishes.
“I’ll let you rest…” just as The Mind is about to leave, Jarod calls after him.
“The Girl?? Is she alright?” Jarod inquires.
The Mind looks back towards Jarod with his ever frequenting Maniacal Smile “Oh heavens yes… In fact she’s most likely wet and naked in my room about now…” with this he leaves.
“What?!” Jarod exclaims, but then passes out.
THE MINDS BEDROOM
Meanwhile, inside The Mind’s Bedroom, which The Mind has given Farahi to use during their stay… Farahi has just gotten out of a warm bath, and is drying, and getting dressed in fresh clothing left for her on The Mind’s bed.
NEXT TIME… MORE SNOW STORM SURROUNDED BUILDING CONVERSATIONS…
