The black wood, desk that Trey and his brother sit at. The room pristine and futuristic in design yet strong hints of early Victorian architecture, the room is lavish. Seated across from Trey and Red, the blonde haired blue eyed assistant smiles and winks at the two men is Kaleema. Raven’s assistant, Kaleema sexy and flirtatious she smacks her gum routinely.
“Can I help you two boys with anything?”
“No thank you.”
“You sure now, anything you need you just holler,” Kaleema says winking at them opening her blouse a bit more.
“Kaleema, move along come on there’s work to be done, see to it these two have the proper identification cards and ID’s. Then take them to the lower chamber, and begin testing. No mistakes this time, we need them to infiltrate Westfall,” Raven instructs, leaning in to kiss her on the neck. In disgust Kaleema pushes him away looking at Trey and Red.
“Alright boys – you heard him follow me right this way.”
“Trey, you can sit in here and Art may I call you Art?”
“Yes you may.”
“Alright, come with me you can sit in this room opposite your brother.” Kaleema says.
“Uh, excuse me what kinds of tests are these, why are he and I here.” Red asks. The stale grey mirror, between the brothers its sheen allowing each other the view of the other yet still the two can’t see each other at all.
“Well how come I can see my brother Trey in there yet I can’t see him?”
“I don’t know, hun that is part of the first test.”
“What the hell, it makes no sense.” Strapping Arthesis into the chair, Kaleema, tries to sooth his nervousness and rubs his inner thigh high up as she straps him down to the chair. He leans his head back and closes his eyes. She gets up and heads for the door..
“hey wait, why am, I strapped to this chair?”
Kaleema looks back at him and smiles then blows him a kiss and leaves. Entering the next room she straps Trey down to his chair, only she straddles him, then kisses his neck. The tests will begin in approximately one hour, she whispers to him as she gets up and leaves. Her scent so invigorating, like ripe cherries on a mid-summer’s eve delightful. Kaleema walks out, and back into the control room where Raven reads the two boy’s files.
“It says here in this file, the two were abandoned at age 10. Well they have
extensive combat training” Raven reads aloud continuing. “Multiple altercations with local law, and state multiple infractions arrests, assault. Blatant disregard for authority perfect these two are just superb, they were meant for this test. Kaleema, be a dear and start the test, now, please.”
"Raven, I know you say you have found the perfect subjects and best candidates (these boys) for the experiment; but need I remind you Lord Balcham insisted they be 22 years old. These two, Trey, and Arthesis, are all of 15 years old.”
“You my dear needn’t concern yourself with that or any other matter, it does not concern you.” Raven, responds with his black leather trench coat and SBS symbol embroidered on the right breast and back.
“Yes, well how can you be sure the Auscillium and Abanthium will take to these two?”
“It’s not in your job description to question my motives; I am the scientist and greatest mind both wars have ever seen. Your job of which you were hired was to seduce these two into saying yes for this gig in the first place; that said you Kaleema may leave now.” Now let the tests begin,” Raven says
over the intercom. The doors close and the hum and click of the locks tell all there is no escape. The Gas creeps in, coughing and choking the gas has a hellish effect on both Trey and Arthesis. The two look at the other and watch the effects, deep black scars penetrate Trey’s face and body, black now replaces the blood, Arthesis not so lucky. He inhales the gas, and his
flesh burns away and leaves massive bloody scabs. As the two fall into a deep state of hypnotic psychosis Raven designates each a new name.
“Treyhag, your name is now Inkblot and you Arthesis your name is now Bloodstain,” a dark voice announces.
Burns slow painful, the gas soaks into their skin, eating their flesh, Arthesis suffers far worse than his brother. Silent screams fill the night air, Kaleema now disgusted by the sight leaves.
"Kaleema one more thing."
"Erase their memory, I don't want them to know any trace of what happened to them, remember secrecy."
"Yes sir will, do... Prick."
Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
ram123: Beautifully written novel, engrossing from start to finish. Great story, clever and imaginative adventure of two young sisters in Victorian England. Story moved at a quick pace .Looking forward to the second book. Congratulations to the author I predict that this will be a very successful series.
JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...
ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...
MegaRogueLegend666: I love this story so much. It's impossible to describe my excitement with each new chapter in words. The author has such a good writing style, very good descriptions of the fighting and character descriptions/emotions. the plot is also amazing! This fanfic could be a side anime show or novel ......
Tony Lee: Very interesting with good ideas! Would recommend it as a casual read. Been depressed for quite some time but this novel kept me occupied for about a week. If you enjoy fiction-thriller novels with some magic involved, then this is the novel for you.
Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...
Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...
Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...
Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...
FreakyPoet: "you made me laugh, made me cry, both are hard to do. I spent most of the night reading your story, captivated. This is why you get full stars from me. Thanks for the great story!"
Sara Joy Bailey: "Full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done."
