Project: VOCALOID

By chiiomajesty

Action / Romance

Damned Escape


Project Rin is a cyborg masterfully developed by her father, a brilliant but crazed scientist driven with an impossible goal, which his daughter happens to be the key.

However, Rin escapes, barely alive. At the cost of her success, her memories are damaged, and is taken in by the Kagamine family. Struggling with troubles at school and trying to adjust to the complications of her newfound emotions, she finds herself in the catastrophes of teenage life, troubles, and Len Kagamine, the boy she starts to become drawn to…

Little does she know, people are after her. They want to use her body for power nd military use. Daddy's angry too… he'll stop at nothing to get her back and shut down her heart for good, so she may become… VOCALOID.

Please remember;

Italics: The language of German, since the setting takes place in Berlin for this chapter.

Bold: Stands for the language of Japanese, which Leon speaks to confuse Rin, for she cannot understand it. This isn't important until later chapters, however, during her POV.

Berlin, Germany

02:03 A.M.

Takashi HQ; Main Lab

Sssh…

In the darkness of the giant room, a single, bubbling reactor stood in the center. Inside the reactor, however, was a girl… parts of her body covered in iron armor.

Ssshh…

The calming hiss of her breathing would indicate others that she was still alive, only asleep.

Of course, for a long while now.

A shining, iron helmet concealed her face. Behind the cold exterior, were closed eyes.

Sssshh…

Ba-bump, ba-bump..

Her heart began to stir, creating a noise inside her head.

Ba-bump, ba-bump, ba-bump…! 

Her eyelids shifted uncomfortably under the accelerating rhythm.

BA-BUMP, BA-BUMP…

BA-BUMP!

Eyes snapped open, revealing a luminous shade of blue. Blue eyes.

The sound of heavy breathing was heard as she glanced around. Her lower abdomen was connected to a pair of silvery tubes. Grasping it with both hands, she ripped it from her metal attire. The blue-eyed girl looked past the bubbles surrounding her, past the invisible wall of the giant tube. Moving forward, she summoned an iron-covered fist. Taking a deep breath, she slammed it into the wall.

Glass shattered.

She then proceeded to break down the wall as the water poured out, enabling her comfortable movement. Leaping from the giant reactor, she landed onto the cold, marble ground. Immediately, she ran for the door. Suddenly, two silvery armed robots landed before her, from the ceiling. Not expecting the surprise, she backed off, only to have two more land from behind.

The four drew their pistols, aiming. The girl drew in breath, grabbing one robot's arm and busting it to pieces. Alarmed, the others began to fire, though she quickly swung the machine in front of her. Bullets shattered into the gray exterior, and the robot shut down. She suddenly leaped, drawing large blades from the gauntlets she wore. Spinning her body in a twisting motion, she split her target in half, bolts and screws flying.

The remaining robots fired at her torso, she quickly ducked, swinging her lower leg to their weakest point, their 'heels', which shattered. And she slew them.

Running out into the dark, barely lit hallways, she quickly turned left.

More robots sprang from behind her, forcing her to resort to ranged attacks. Charging energy into her palms, sparks of electricity began to flare. Twisting her body around, she shot out her arms. An array of shockwaves split, coming contact with the machines and instantly shutting them down.

Sprinting ahead, she ran past the sounding alarm, her speed increasing at an inhumane rate. Destroying enemies that stood in her path, she purged on until she finally stopped at a large, generating door.

Taking a quick glance at the code breaker on the side, she slammed her fist into it. The door groaned, starting to open its mighty gate. As the entrance widened, lights illuminated the darkness of the large room, allowing the girl to see.

Across the room, was a glowing platform to her escape, which only she could operate. The G.P.T. She took a step forward and-

CRASH..!

Tremors shook the entire room, causing even the young girl to wobble back and forth from the violent motion, spinning around, her heart could've stopped.

A large, burly man with thick muscles and shaggy black hair, smirked at her. More armed, more advanced robots coming at his side. Large coals stared at her shining iron helmet, searching for her eyes. He carried a big, mean-looking gun at his side, a cigar in his other hand.

"I see the princess has finally awoken from her slumber." The man started in a thick accent as he spoke the raw language of German. He was called 'Harkinian', her father's right-hand man. The girl glared at him through her helmet, getting into a fighting stance. The grin on the man's face broadened.

"Getting bratty, are we?" Harkinian clucked his tongue in disapproval. "That's very naughty of you, what would your father say about this?" The girl inwardly flinched. "Or perhaps you are looking for…" At this point, his eyes gleamed evilly.

"... Miriam?" At mention of the name, the project snapped.

With a furious, inhumane cry, she charged towards him. The man kept his smirk, pointing directly at the target.

"Fueur!" Harkinian bellowed, the sounds of guns going off at his command. The girl leaped, the armor protecting her. Swinging her leg, concealed blades flew from the base of her boot. The blades drove clean into the programmed machines, electric currents suddenly flared from the core of the blades. "..!" The machines sounded before collapsing to the ground.

An amused Harkinian let out a chuckle, tossing his cigar into the nearest corner. "Oh ho ho, this is going to be good." He spat, rubbing his hands together. The project defiantly raised her fists, ready to defend herself.

Before one could advance on the other, a voice cut in;

"Stop."

The project took a sharp intake of breath.

From the shadows of the entrance, a figure stood amidst. A tall, handsome man walked into the light. He had pale, unkempt blonde hair and sharp green eyes. A deep frown creased his mouth. The project felt a boiling feeling towards this man as she watched him approach.

Leon Takashi, her father.

With a sharp glare towards Harkinian, he said. "Were you planning to hurt her?" Fumbling for words, the burly shook his head vigorously, murmuring in embarrassment Turning to his daughter, a cold smile grew on his face.

"My daughter… Angelface." Leon approached with a sickeningly gentle tone. Disgusted, the project took a few steps back, holding out her weapons. "What are doing up so early, honey? You know you're not supposed to wandering and about." Leon drawled, removing a specially-created rifle from behind him. Then, he stopped.

Behind the screen of the helmet, he saw something.

Her eyes…

Her blue eyes… were filled with rage.

And utmost loathing.

"No…" Leon's eyes widened in shock, staring agape at the sight before him. "Impossible! It can't be...! Your heart...!" Seeing his open display of shock, the project took this chance. She sprang for the portal like a wildcat.

"NO!" Leon shouted, chasing after her. Beams of nuclear blasts shot past, which she narrowly dodged. Panting, she opened the glass screen door, locking it behind her. "NO!" Reinforcements charged in, but it was too late now. She was getting away. "STOP HER! WE MUST NOT LET HER ESCAPE!" Leon roared in Japanese, frantically commanding the machines.

With one word, the G.P.T portal could easily send teleport her body to any place she wished to go. She just had to say where.

But… what other place was there for her to go?

Then, everything starting to shake. She turned, her father was pounding at the door with a crazed expression.

Gasping, she turned back to the control panel, she had to think of something quickly..!

"My dearest, Japan is the most wonderful place in the world." A soft, flowing voice suddenly spoke to her. Her eyes widened.

A picture of a woman with long beautiful yellow hair and a shadowed face came to her mind.

Japan…?

"DESTROY THIS MACHINE!" Her father ordered in a furious voice, trying to hack the connections.

"Japan." The girl whispered, and immediately the G.P.T. operated.

"Destination accepted." A computerized voice stated.

"NO!" Unfortunately, this time, Leon managed to break the glass. In desperate attempt, he fired at the control panel, but missed and ended up shooting the back of the girl's helmet.

A sudden pain ripped through her head and into her brain. "Aaah..." She sank to the floor, clutching her head.

"50%…"

Leon's eyes widened, watching the girl sprawl across the floor.

Another throbbing pain ripped through her optic nerve, but this time, it was far more intense and permeated her down her spine. "AAAH...!"

"89%..."

What was happening? What was this weird sensation filling her head? It… she hated it..!

Electricity danced around the base of the helmet, she could feel its shocking, penetrating impulse. Beads of sweat formed her forehead, running down the side of her head. "Nnngh… Nnngh!" She tried to grasp onto something, but to no avail. Her brilliant blue eyes dulled into a dark, murky color. Her other senses began to numb, and her breathing became raspy.

"Aaah... aaaaah...!"

Another head-splitting sensation clouded her head, she let out a bloodcurdling scream that silenced her father's shouts.

"AAAAAAHH!"

Then, everything went white. The pulsing sensation stopped, her mind starting to go blank.

"100%...!" A whooshing blast fired the engines below, her father's screaming protests were useless now… Wearily looking past, the last things she saw, was her father's angry, helpless face.   A flash of blue light….

Then, her head collapsed to the ground.

Ba-bump, ba-bump…

Ba-.. bump…

Ba-...

bump...
