ACT OF WAR
They were all lined up against the walls, their hands tie together, their eyes screamed with fear and hate. They stared down the women leading the witch hunt. Her cold blue eye’s never once showed any sympathy towards them, their muffle screams and begs for mercy just slipped off her. “ Is this all of them ?” She shouted at one of her troops.
“ Felice is still missing, we’re scanning the area to find her madam!” He yelled through the racket.
“ She’ll be long gone by now, Christina.” A voiced yelled behind her. “ They’ve compromised everything we’ve built, everything your father believed in. “ He was a tall young man name Brice. A soon to be leader to the corporation they both serve under.
“ I killed their leader, they’re lost now.” She said to him, without turning back. Her eyes remained on the people lined up against the wall, old friends and colleagues who she once used to trust. . “ Tell me Brice, is it true what they say,” She turned to meet his gaze. “ you’re trying to rebuilt the L.N.S.A?”
He chuckled at her. “ No, never.” He brushed back his amber hair, clearing away the ashes that were falling on his head. “ We spent all our resource to kill them back in South Africa, why would we recreate another batch of those demons?”
“ God damn it, Christina, don’t do this. Constantine, was trying to stop them,” One of the victims was able to undo the cloth from her mouth. “ You can’t trust the company, please listen to me! “
She raised her hand and motion her troops to aim their weapons. “ You knew the risk of turning your backs against this company. Now all of you have to pay the punishment for it.”
” God damn it, you have no idea what we were trying to do, find Felice, she’ll tell you the truth.” One final plead.
” I’ve heard enough.” As she brought her hand down, her men let their weapons rip into each victim, the bullets sliced into them, their blood painted the walls a bright red, their bodies toppled over one another and seconds later it was over.
“ Bravo,” Brice enthusiastically clapped at the spectacle. “ I knew the company could count on you in it’s time of need.”
Christina gave him a cold stare. “ Why isn’t Mao apart of the dead?” She asked.
“ Don’t be silly, a mind like his is too valuable to waste. After today, we won’t have a problem in keeping him under control.” He wrapped his arm around her. “ The company is in your debt, anything you want, you shall receive.”
“ I want his body.”
Brice stared at her oddly for a few seconds. “ If that’s what you want, then you’ll have it. But what would you want with the body of the man that killed your father.” She said no words.

Brice: It’s good to hear from you sir, how’s the wife?
Whitmore: Cut the shit, Brice, I want to know about
Brice: I’m afraid I can’t disclose that information, your clearance level doesn’t give you access to this project.
Whitmore: I’ve been faithful to the company for years.
Brice: And we thank you for that.
Whitmore: Let me finish.
Brice: My apologies, please continue.
Whitmore: But still I’m treated like shit on someone’s boot.
Brice: Colorful analogy.
Whitmore: It’s the Goddamn truth. This has to change, Brice, I’m tried of being left in the dark.
Brice: I understand your frustration, and I agree. You’ve been loyal to the company for almost twenty years, and it’s not fair to leave you out of the loop. So, Mr. Whitmore you have my word that I will fight unrelenting to change this travesty.

Brice: Why are we so angry today?
General: I’m freezing my nuts off in here, that’s why.
Brice: Well, don’t worry; I’m sending you a package that should warm your heart and those testicles.
General: And what that the fuck could that be?
Brice: A basket full of porno vids, wine and cheeses.
General: Shit, you know me too well, Brice.
Brice: But is that a good thing or a bad thing?
General: Hell if I know. So what’s on the agenda?
Brice: James Whitmore.
General: The monkey you boys are planning to groom as President?
General: Shit, the guy who cleans the toilets is higher ranking than he is.
Brice: I know that, but all I need from you is to keep him occupied.
General: So you want me to feed him bullshit and make him thinks he’s worth a damn.
General: I’ll do it for the porno.
Brice: Good man.
General: Whitmore is a Republican, right?
Brice: You have a problem with republicans.
General: Yeah, I do.
Brice: May I ask what that is?
General: They’re nothing but homo’s, shit spews out of their mouths and they have a stick up their asses.
Brice: (laughs) isn’t every politician that way?
Brice: He’ll be there on the 17th
General: Fine, I’ll humor the bastard.

Brice: The new President of the United States of America.
Whitmore: I plan to make some changes, Brice.
Whitmore: I want more control over the company.
Brice: Is this a joke?
Brice: Whitmore, don’t think for a second I won’t kill you.
Brice: I put you where you’re at, I can take it away in a heart beat.
Whitmore: No, you won’t do that.
Brice: How do you figure?
Whitmore: I know too much, Red Strom, you wouldn’t want anyone finding out about that.
Brice: Poor, silly James.
Brice: Did you really see Red Strom?
Brice: What you saw was a fake, something to keep you satisfied.
Whitmore: No, that’s not true.
Brice: Oh, it is.
Whitmore: I… I… I…

New York City
December 31, 2020
Times Square was packed with people shoulder to shoulder, standing in the cold night as couples, friends, love ones and complete strangers, prepared to ring in the New Year. Because tonight you said farewell to the past 365 days and said hello to an all new.
Ten seconds from now, people were planning to make resolutions to lose weight, spend less, save more, become a better person and even make a commitments to clean themselves from past demons. One out of ten of those would stand, the rest would be broken within the week. Putting them back to the same routine as before, though none of that seem to bother anyone, because tonight wasn’t about preoccupying yourself with the future, tonight you party like there was no tomorrow with the people you loved.
” Ten… Nine… Eight… Seven… Six… Five…”Every person at Time Square began to count down as the New Year’s Ball began to drop. ” Four… Three… Two…” Couples embraced in a passionate kiss, hoping to start the new year with their lips locked around their lover’s. Friends placed their arms around one other, just thankful to have such a great company that cared for them so much. ” One… Happy New . . .”
The voices of thousands fell silent. The cheering, laughter and singing had been replaced with the sound of a dead echoing grave. It was as if time itself had come to a sudden stop, only to be quickly replaced with a thundering roar, and a blinding white flash that consumed and brought every man, woman and child to their knees.
Some victims had no idea that their lives had come to an end that night, others, who noticed the blast, had no chance of escaping from it, or even say a quick prayer before their demise. For those around America watching the event on television, they witnessed the first Nuclear Attack on American soil.

Brice: You monster!
???: Funny, I could say the same thing about you.
Brice: Those people!
???: Were already dead before this event, and you know it.
Brice: What do you want?
???: Your blood.
Brice: . . .
???: As of right now, Los Nino’s Sin Alma declare war on the Companies. We’ll make sure to do what Constantine couldn’t, five years ago
Brice: You should be dead, I saw you die!
???: Still on that? Well, You should have done a better job in trying to exterminate us.
Brice: I’ll fix that, I’ll make sure to put you six feet underground. You have my word on that.
???: Talk is cheap, Brice.
Brice: I’ll find each and every one of you, If it’s the last thing I do.
???: I can’t wait. Monsters vs Monsters, who’ll be the last one standing?
Brice: cut off the commutations, these fuckers hacked into the base computers!
” Guess I wasn’t the only one listing.”
