Chapter 1: Matthew


I had been carrying hot chicken soup when I saw the news. A girl named Sara had been kidnapped, blond hair, blue eyes, it couldn't be. But it was. Sara Goodmen had always been a crush of mine, and now... I drop my bowl in shock, the pain is nothing compared to what I was really feeling.


"Thomas you idiot! I just cleaned that damn floor!! You clean it up right now!" My mom yells, and my own temper flares.


"No you didn't! I'm always cleaning up your messes! You don't even work anymore! I'M PAYING FOR YOUR SOAPS!" I storm over to the front door, and slam it behind me.


I walk over to my tree house, located in a huge oak tree, which conceals it well. Me and my freinds always hang out there. My dad, who went missing when I was five, built it for me, against mom's protests. I climb up, and walk over to the mirror, and look at myself. I have long, shaggy black hair, dark brown eyes, and a fairly light build. Because I live in Florida, I maintain a decent tan. I have a slight cut scar on my left cheek, from a fight in middle school, the kid involved had a knife.


I look out the window with a view of the street, and I fondly remember that this is where I had first seen Sara, several years ago. Memories flood my brain, they turn bittersweet, and before I am even aware, I am sobbing bitterly. I had actually planned on telling her how I feel about her... and then this. Today was the day, my chance! Damn those men in black...


I stare out into the sunset, and wonder what has become of Sara.


Amist the sobbing and babbling of the girl's terror, there was always one thing she said. Just one, that the Director didn't understand.

"Matthew," was what she would cry at random whilst crying, but when confronted about this, 'Matthew', she would not seem to know what they were talking about. This intrigued the Director to no end.


"Find out who this Matthew is. He may be important." The Director looks at his monitor screen, the dim light barely illuminating his face, only enough to give it the appearance of an apparition, which was fine by him. Only the government knew he was alive, he left his family to start this program. Family long has been forgotten, he no longer cares for it, only his work sustains him.


She shivers in her cold dark room, the only sentinet activity was from the video camera constantly surverying her. She flinches, as her skin burns again, but what really burns is her mind, her memory and sanity all but gone. The metal door slams open, and a cocky lab assistant with a needle starts walking towards her, and her vision blurs...


So... she in a split second, killed that man without effort... how interesting, the Director thinks to himself. She is suffering from multiple personality disorder... the experiment on her DNA must have terrifyed her to insanity... and her mind split to protect itself... An innocent girl, with no memory, only fright and terror, and an aggresive, murderous killer personality with the only key to the child's memory.


He gazes on the sixteen year old experiment, and he says to himself,


"You need a name, my little experiment... you'll be EX0L8. Experiment-Zero-Legion-Eight."


The girl, with her red eyes and great mane of blond hair, glares up at the camera, full of hate. It is always the same with the created, they always hate their creator.


The Director chuckles, as he notices something different about her: she'd grown bigger. She had much more muscle, although not of interest to him, her cleavage had grown as well.


"You are full of surprises, the experiment made her alternate self more mature..."


He couldn't wait to reattempt to inject Gene UhAo. He just hoped the military wouldn't experiment on her without authorization. After all, she is his private project.

I liked this chapter as well. One thing I was confused about was when it switched from Matthew's point of view back to Sara/Director. Some stars running across or a chapter break in that spot would help. I really like the story - it is getting interesting.

Matthew sounds like a good guy!He seems physically attractive, but not in the way you would think.And at first I didn't like Sarah's name, but now I see it creates contrast to her experiment name.Great job on this!
