It was a dark and stormy night.



No, it was not.



It was a dark and foreboding time, where evil is good and good is evil, and evil and good are non-existent. It's a hundred years in the future, but it is now. It was two thousand years ago, but
it's in the future.



Nuclear war. Terrorism. A violent overthrow of world powers, all succumbing to one thing, ancient yet modern. Elementary, yet so complex.



Alpha. Beta. Gamma. Delta. The Greek alphabet, transformed into the name of an oppressive world government, one doomed to fail, yet so powerful in its life.



For Emmett, his life has been split. As a boy, he was relocated from a comfortable residence in Bellevue, Washington, to a cramped and tightly controlled space in a high-rise in downtown Seattle.
His mother left their family shortly thereafter to serve the evil world government, and left on their own, the rest of his family struggles to live.



Yet, Alpha has another trick up its sleeve.



They need a new leader. The General has been ruling for ten years now, and its time for a change in leadership. How to elect a new one...



Death. Risk. A game. Real-life strategic warfare to prove who's the most qualified for the job. The family game of Risk has been transformed into a horrific system of recruiting and killing, all
under the name of Alpha.



All under the name of authority. It has destroyed Emmett's family, his friends, and himself. He must destroy the system somehow, but to do so, he needs to enter the system first.



He needs to play The Match.

Friendship

I feel like this chapter isn't as good as my previous ones. Expect some revisions! I hope you get what I was trying to say in this chapter. Emmett relies heavily on friends that he regards as
family, which is not limited to his immediate family. Enjoy!
