Unreal: What did I do to Deserve This?
I don't own Unreal or any of its constituent parts they are the property of
Epic Games and Infograms, I think.
One: The Crash
"Prisoner 359!" The Guard barked. "Return to your cell!"
I did, the force field flickering to life behind me, I settled down on my
bed to eat the gruel.
"Damn!" I cursed as the sudden shuddering caused my food to slosh
everywhere. Alarms started going off and I grabbed the bunk above mine to
stop form being thrown across the room. Outside the cell guards were
I knew one of the men form another block was being executed in the
electrocution chamber attached to our block. Couldn't remember his name,
didn't really care.
"Everyone Stay in your bunks." A guard yelled over the intercom. As the
force fields at the doors of our cells flickered out.
Iverx, my cell companion, jumped on a guard smashing both her hands into
the back of his head, he crumpled in a lifeless heap on the floor.
"Behind you!" I yelled over the growing din of alarms, as a guard razed his

wasn't such a good weapon.
Iverx leaped at the guard who was court off guard and fell to the floor,
she twisted the laser out of his hand with her superior strength and shot

"Common!" She called to me, I took a step forward to join her when the
chains holding the top bunk snapped and it came crashing down on the top of
my head. That was the last thing I remember, Iverx left me there. Ok I
would have done the same, you didn't survive this long inside without
learning look after number one.
