Step through the pages and join the Revolution.
Kaizen approached, Newsfeed lies assaulting his ears, anti-psychic Thought Crime propaganda ringing out blasting through the streets as he snuck up on his target stopping in the middle of the dank alley.
Voice pitched assaulting, Kaizen spewed threat viscous like artillery fire.
“Faid Callen, Cyberterrorist Leader of the Packrat Hackers. Violating curfew?”
Faid confronte stopping dead holding his ground as kaizen pushed.
“Still rebelling against the government?”
Faid smirked snickering pinching his fingers, eyebrow twitching as he dug his black painted nails into the wrestled hilt of his Packrat knife,
“Got nothing to say to a hacker turned hired killer.”
“You just jealous I don’t have a Zone Police Shoot to Kill order on my head like you do.”
“ZenZen’s lapdog barking orders on command. Honoured he sent you to kill me. What, he scared of me? CEO of the SenseNet, milions of credits and accolades, powered investors can’t control a group of renegade hackers?”
Kaizen snarled. “Killing the leader of the Hacker Revolution will be a pleasure. Bet the Newsfeed will even broadcast it live.”
Smug, Faid chuckled. “Tempting coming from Kaizen the Immaculate, first Level 9 Hacker recognized by the Elite government. But I have something else in mind. Owe you some payback….”
“Why Faid, you were thinking about me. I’m flattered…”
