Cyborg 009: Generation X

Chapter 1: People Missing?

~ New York City, United States of America, 24th August, 15.13 pm ~

A young girl named Rose Bane made her way to home from her soccer practise. She had long, red hair and lavender eyes. She was wearing a gothic/punk outfit: black sleeveless shirt with red and white lined cross printed on it, dark grey shorts and black-and purple striped sock on her right foot and black-and pink striped sock on her left foot. On her arms were black sleeves.

Rose had headphones on her ears, and she was listening rock music. She wasn't paying much attention on her surroundings, her mind on her very own world. Suddenly she noticed a black, expensive-looking car parking right next to her. Two men in black suits stepped out of the car. She took headphones off her ears when she noticed that the men trying to get her attention.

"Excuse me miss, but could you help us? We are kinda lost." the taller one of the men asked her. The shorter and fatter one was holding a map on his hands.

For some Rose got creeps from those men. But she didn't want to be impolite, so she walked over to them. When she got closer the shorter man showed her the map. But as she was taking a closer look at it, the taller man got behind her and put a cloth on her mouth.

It smelled weird, and Rose was having difficulties to breath. Eventually, she fell into unconsciousness. The two men dragged her into the car and placed her onto the backseat.

Then they drove away with her. The only thing left from her was her soccer-back lying on the street, telling about her unpleasant fateā€¦

~ London, England, 24th August, 15.27 pm ~

A boy named David Smith sat on the park-bench. There was no one else in the park, and he was bored out of his mind. He just wanted some kind of action, to do something awesome.

He saw a car parking near him. It was black one and the driver, who stepped out, had a black suit. He seemed to be checking the car like there was something wrong with it. Then the man turned to him.

"Hey, lad, could you give me a hand? I could use some help with the old girl." he asked.

David didn't have anything better to do, and he knew a thing or two about cars, so he walked over to the man.

The man asked him to check the wheel on the back. As David bent down, he suddenly felt pain on the back of his head. The pain was so great, that he blacked out.

The man chuckled evilly before lifting him onto the backseat and driving away.

~ Tokyo, Japan, 24th August, 15.48 ~

A little girl was walking beside her father, holding his hand. She had no idea where they were, but it was some kind of hospital. She had never liked hospitals, so she was feeling uneasy.

"Otousan, where are we going?" she asked, squeezing his hand more firmly.

"To see a doctor, sweetheart. He's gonna make you better." her father answered, squeezing her hand back.

"But I don't wanna see anymore doctors! They haven't made me better before!" she protested, stopping her walking.

Her father sighed before kneeling down to her level. He placed his hands on her shoulders and made her look at him.

"I know you're scared, but this is different kind of doctor. He can cure your illness, and make you better for good. Then you don't have to go hospitals anymore, and you'll have new life after that. Isn't that what you want, Mitsuki?"

Mitsuki nodded her head slowly. No more hospitals, she thought. That sounded good. No more illness. That sounded even better.

"Promise?" she asked her father. Her father was silent for a moment.

"Hai, I promise. Now, let's go." he said and took her hand.

Mitsuki followed him into a hall. Soon they reached door. She still couldn't help but feel uneasy. This was nothing like the doctor's office in the other hospitals.

Her father opened the door. There was a lot of light and the room was filled with doctors and nurses and in the middle of the room was a operation-bed. The one that looked like the head-doctor turned to look at them.

"Ah, doctor Kamiya. We've been waiting for you. Is the test subject ready?" he said. Mitsuki could swear there was a smile behind his mask. But she didn't know if it was good or not.

"Yes. Here she is, as agreed. Make sure you'll make good work." her father said, his tone suddenly cold.

Now Mitsuki could see what the doctors had. Knives and other scary things she knew doctors used to cut people open. Fear filled her.

"Now, come here dear, and we can begin." the doctor said as he reached for her.

"No, I don't want to! Otousan!" she screamed, taking a hold of her father.

"We don't have the whole day! Come now!" the doctor ordered, getting angry.

"No! Otousan, make them stop!" Mitsuki was holding her father for her dear life.

"Mitsuki, let go. And do as you're told." her father said, his tone cold and unfeeling.

Mitsuki had never heard her father talk to her that way. Tears were starting to fall from her eyes. Fear was taking over her as more doctors were pulling her away towards the bed.

"No, Otousan! Please, don't leave me! Otousan! OTOUSAN!" she screamed and tried to struggle, but in vain.

The doctors managed to pull her away from her father. She was forced onto the bed and a mask was placed on her mouth. Sleeping gas filled her and she fell into sleep in seconds.

Doctor Kamiya turned to leave. A single tear ran across his cheeks as he heard his daughter's crying turn into silence.
