The Mind Chronicles – Volume Three

THE MIND CHRONICLES – VOLUME THREE

Old Blue Eyes;

EASTERN CANADA 6 – NOVEMBER, THE YEAR 2075

200 MILES NORTH OF US 5

Jarod Black heads North From W-One, or what was called Washington State, into Canada 6

The Forests are Charred, and have never recovered from the Great Collision of 2039… When the Skies were on fire.

Jarod is Riding his White Mechanical Horse, Johnny Carson… Though he just calls him Johnny.

“The Sky is edging towards night, as I get closer and closer to a supposed Western Outpost deep in the charred forest of Canada 6″.

“That’s where I’ll sleep, and not a moment sooner…”.

“I know The Mind has determined that many of the Mutants don’t like the cold, but I don’t feel like running into one or more of them at night…”.

“Especially those Glowy Blue Eyed ones…”.

“It doesn’t help that they can see at night, and their skin is as black as these Burnt Trees…”.

“Nothing but Glowing Blue Eyes, and dark shadowy forms… Wretched things”.

As the sun goes down, Jarod pulls down his Night Goggles, and secures his great leather coat, as the cold comes quickly behind the darkness…

WESTERN OUTPOST – 7:57pm

When Jarod arrives at the Southern Gate of the Western Outpost, he is searched over thoroughly by the Guards…

One of them looks at his ID “Says here you’re a Mercenary…”.

Jarod simply nods.

This catches the ear of one of the other Guards, a larger one “A Mercenary eh…”.

“Would it kill yah to help your Country out without Charging for it… Where you from, US 5?” he questions Jarod.

“Canada 6 couldn’t afford me..” with this Jarod brushed by the men. The larger one acts as if he’s going to go after him, but the other Guards stop him.

“There must be Two to Three Hundred Civilians in here… And their Gates seem pretty fortified… I think I can actually get some sleep in here tonight”.

Jarod notices a large gathering of Civilians over at a large Video Monitor. He approached one of them.

“What’s goin on…” he asks.

“Haven’t you heard?? The Mind is going to be making a Global Telecast to the whole planet in just a few minutes here…”.

“The Mind… Really…” with this Jarod sticks around.

And then it begins…

“Mind are you there? The N-One Media Representative asks.

“I am…”. Both the N-One Media Representative and The Mind can now be seen on the split screen.

“Is there anything you’d like to tell the people of the World…”. With this The Mind puts on a Hearty Grin and leans forward very closely to the Camera.

“Yes… Yes there is… There’s a whole Sh$@# Load of Mutants out there, so get off you your Pathetic Asses, and kill the Fu$#’rs!!”. Suddenly The Mind’s half of the screen goes black.

The N-One Media Rep. is shocked “Uhhh, we seem to have lost our Signal from The Mind… Please stay tuned for our World Status Reports”.

Jarod smiles… “I like this guy…” and heads to his sleep zone.

2:48am

Jarod is abruptly awoken by three Outpost Guards “Hey Merc… You appear to have lead a Blue Eyed Breed right to our Outpost… Now get out there and kill it…”.

Jarod rubs the sleep from his eyes, and pulls a huge Single Canon X12 out of his bag “Ahhh, Sh@#!!”.

NEXT TIME… EH, YOU’LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE…
