Memories of the ARK

By C.M. Hernandez

Scifi / Fantasy

Chapter 1

*Prologue: Incurable Disease*

Professor Gerald had tried hard. He did. For 12 years now, he couldn't find or create a cure for his granddaughter's disease, the rare NIDS (Neuro-Immuno Deficiency Syndrome). Before Maria Robotink was born, her mother, Hope Robotnik caught the disease when she was 2 months pregnant with her during the hunt for the evil doctor who's been stalking Hope. Gerald took the baby from Hope who requested him to take her with him up in the ARK to be away from Veldon and away from people since Maria had the disease that is very contagious.Hope was never heard after Gerald took his newborn granddaughter up in the Space Colony ARK. He tried to contact her, until he recently found out that she has been murdered. Of course, the culprit is Veldon. Gerald will do anything he could to protect Maria from him or any of Veldon's people who wanted Maria to "experiment". Good thing the Space Colony ARK is full of protection such as guards, and many cameras in certain areas.Gerald had once meet the President to create the immortal creature to use as a weapon, but Gerald at first doesn't seem so interested until he was told that immortality can cure all. Gerald doesn't know what to believe or not. Immortal. If Gerald could do that, he could cure his granddaughter. But, how will he able to create something that is immortal and never age? Will it really work?And now, Gerald had plans to make a cure for Maria, no matter the cost. He had to try to create it. Maria doesn't have many years left.

Maria isn't the only child up in the colony, she has two friends who go to classes with her. Mardic Flynn who is 17, and Abraham Tower a 7 year old boy. The three are close like family, and never want to be separated at some times. Though, Maria couldn't be around for much longer because of the disease, and Mardic and Abraham will live on to have their own future.Growing up with the disease, Maria has some side effects. Nosebleeds, breathing problems, dizzy spells, and coughing up blood. Losing blood was the worst for the body of the young girl, and the doctors and nurses always keep Maria healthy whenever she was in the emergency room. She must be in the medication to slow down her side effects.Maria's disease never stops...

The old professor is in his lab working on the files by his computer. A man in the lab coat walked in with a clipboard and hand Gerald the copy of the project. After Gerald took the paper, the man looked at him in worry.

"Professor, you need some sleep. You can't go on with this project without rest." He told him.

"I'm fine, Ven." Gerald said, never taking his eyes off the files.

"You keep saying that every time I tell you to rest." The man said. "I know this project means you well, but it's been years, professor. Maria is 12 years old and she doesn't much time left." Gerald slammed his files down to make Ven jump.

"Dammit, Ven! You sound like my wife who left me years ago when Maria was 3 years old! She left me! Joanna left me because she thinks I've gone mad! Mad as a hatter!" Gerald said. Ven only stared at him in silent. Gerald sighed a little and sat down. "I'm sorry..."

"It's alright, sir. But, I didn't mean anything like that. I'm saying is that there is no cure for the NIDS." Ven said.

"That's why I have to create one for Maria." Gerald said. "A project for those who had the NIDS. I will call it...Project: Shadow." Ven stares at the professor in silent. How could this work? How could a man could create a cure for Maria's disease? Gerald came towards the empty capsule and touched the glass. "I create so much, and now...this project won't fail. Maria will be alive for...decades."

"Will it be...a living thing, sir?" Ven asked.

"Yes. It will be." Gerald said. "This project is different. It will be the Ultimate Life Form."
