Location: A New York suburb.
"Wake up Jeremy you'll be late for school, again!"
"Ugh, my head hurts, can I just stay home mom, seriously, I feel like a car just hit me."
Suddenly my mind was racing, going every which way until I finally looked at where I was, it was my old house in New York, why was I going to school, why wasn't I going to the academy. I got up and headed downstairs when I looked at a calendar outside my sister's room. January 31, 2009 was the only circled date on it. I didn't care enough to see what it said.
"What's today mom?" I asked hoping not to sound too stupid.
"It's the 21st, why?"
"Just making sure of something." I went down into our pantry to look for some good food to eat but I didn't really find much, then I turned around and realized I had triggered something, A light blue hue filled the area behind the freezer, I looked around the freezer to see how I could get to it, finally, it just moved and there was a doorway. That was lined with blue lights all the way down it. I stepped into the doorway and I was quickly whisked down to the other end. There I found a huge room, it had 3 mounted pulse cannon turrets, as well as a missile turret, it was all controlled by a panel on the far side of the room. In front of that panel was a very comfortable looking chair, on the chair was a remote of some sort, I grabbed it and started pressing buttons. The first button I pressed turned out to open the roof, when it opened, a lot of dirt began to fall, so I closed it.
Then I realized my mom was going to wonder where I was, so I looked around trying to find the exit, it was a staircase going up to the surface. So I went up and it brought me to the field right outside my house, so now I knew where my secret lab was, now, why was it there?
So I then ran back into the house and told my mom I couldn't find anything to eat, she tossed me a granola bar. I went to my car; not sure how I knew it was my car, I just knew it was somehow. I headed off to school; for the first time ever I felt utterly confused, and hoped that I could get out of this situation. When I got there everyone knew me, I just didn't know anyone.
Nothing interesting happened during the school day, but after school, that was the interesting part. I was in the guidance office to get a new schedule for classes, and then I saw four guys in military attire. I figured that they were just recruiters, but then one of them said, "We're looking for Jeremy Brinks. I walked out into the corridor to try and escape their sight, it worked, but then I saw another 2 walking my way, so I quickly turned around and walked out of the main doors, I jogged to my car and started it up, trying not to look suspicious. I also turned on a police scanner that I had for some reason; apparently I was wanted for arms dealing, and there was a military roadblock between the school and my house. So I drove off, thinking of a way to get around it as I drove. There was a creek right by my house, well, close enough, so I decided I was going to swim to my house, or walk along the edge of it if I didn't get spotted.
I got to an intersection, stopped my car on the side of the road and got out. I started walking towards the creek; once I got to the edge of the creek I heard a loud voice screaming at the top of their lungs. I got a glance of his face, and then thought he looked familiar just not sure where from. So I began walking along the creek, stopping every once in a while to catch my breath. I then saw up on the road a man with a gun of some sort, obviously military make. So I just kept walking and hoped I wasn't spotted, of course that didn't work. He saw me and motioned for me to come up there, so I slowly walked up the hill to the road, not sure why I was listening and not running, they thought of basic combat training in Starfleet. Once I got to him he asked for ID, so I reached for my wallet, he of course held his gun on me as I reached for it. I pulled out my wallet and handed it to him; as he was looking at it, I grabbed his gun with my left arm, and thrusted it into his face, he stumbled backwards at which point I hit him again with the butt of the gun and ran. I ran back down to the creek.
I clutched the gun like it was a lifeline, and then realized that it would be better for me not to have it, they know I took it by now, so if I kept it, it would be obvious as to who I was. So I tossed it into the water.
Then as I was getting close to my house I heard a loud whirring sound, like a really big saw cutting down the creek bed. I then saw what it was, a helicopter. An Apache to be exact, the officer manning the turret saw me quickly, I knew I had no choice but to get wet; I jumped into the water as far in as I could, and dived as often as possible and only surfaced to get a breath every so often. I then saw the bridge that led off to my house, and also saw my escape. I got to the bridge and stopped and got out once the Apache passed over the bridge; I then climbed the bridge to the road, and ran as fast as I could, and remembered the remote, I hoped and prayed it still worked. I clicked it once, nothing happened, then frantically pressing the buttons it opened the roof of the lab, the Apache by then realized I wasn't in the water anymore and got over to the road. The bullets started flying by as if they were warning me. I started running to the field and where the opening was, I made a running leap and made it to the edge, I then realized it was about 15 feet to the ground, and realized I was committed to the jump, and had no choice but to continue it. I then hit something, but it wasn't the ground, it wasn't even there, it was empty space, but it slowed me enough not to hurt me.
Now in there I closed the roof as military officers began running to the edge. I ran to the weapon control platform and activated all four turrets. They lifted off the ground and went through holes in the roof made just for them. At first I was manually targeting officers until I realized it would auto target, so I let it do that. For one of them I kept it on manual so I could pick off the ones that were real nuisances. The turrets had physical shields that blocked the bullets, so they weren't receiving damage. Then they brought in a tank, and it targeted the closest turret, I activated a thicker shield for it and the tank round dented that severely, I then took out the tank with 2 missiles from the missile launcher. This blockage made it very difficult for the other tank to get through. I then decided I would just put up all the metal shields and let them shoot it up, I just needed a way to live.
I then heard a loud knocking on the door to the basement of my house, they must have found the passageway, I knew I had no chance. I just sat there and let them blow through the door and awaited my doom, the door blew open, I welcomed the officers by saying, "well, hello all of you, would you like a drink?" They all raised their weapons, and the room began to zoom past me as if at light speed.
