Dead meets Lead
My birth is destined to be a tragic ending, which leads me to a road to death. I have memories of past lives, even though I am a high-ranking robot now. A host of intelligent Scientists spent nearly half of lifetime to let me get the second life, but they did not let me choose the way of life.
From my previous recollection, I gradually realize I used to be a crazy biologist. It is beyond belief that I paid of all my efforts to create a variant called “Lillian” and she killed numerous human beings cruelly. Nowadays, the world security agency finds that Lillian is hiding in an uninhabited island and orders the execution of her. Nevertheless, people who carried out the task were all dead. A few days ago, scientists still detected Lillian’s activities. Therefore, they remembered me and required me to perform it as the blamed maker. At the thought of those innocent peoples dying of horrors, I should have come to an end.
After equipped with the most advanced weapons, I drive the red Mercedes that came over by airlift with me. I do not know why I ask for the car, is it the intuition of heart? There is no more time to let me explore the correct reason. The leaders only give me three days, or the automatic explosion in my body will be started.
This is an extremely peaceful and deserted island. Fabulously, Lillian could survive in this place for thirty years. Constant circle drives, I cannot find any marks of her.
Suddenly, a sudden change in the situation with lightning flashes and thunder rumbles. The sea is roaring and the sky is crying. With a flash of lightning toward the central of island, the ground begins to crack abruptly. I control the car into the biggest land. At the moment, the island splits faster and faster, it already becomes a myriad of fragments. With a severe shake, there is no doubt that my car will fall into the sea. I lost consciousness in the falling and wake up in a fragrance, open my eyes slowly. A person is moving forwardly. Listening to the noise, she runs to me quickly. Based on the memory, I recognize she must be Lillian.
“Mark, are you okay?” She says.
“Not so bad.” I cannot control my mouth to answer.
With a close look, she is more charming than my memory. Does she the killing spree that I made?
“Lillian? How long have I been sleeping?”
“About two days. I recognized our red car so I can save you.” She thinks for a while. After a while, she stands up and walks away. As I understand only half a day to complete the task, she throws herself into my arms that her action makes me at a loss, but I can feel my clothes were wet.
“Thirty years later, you finally found me. Mark, I am sure you will come. I miss you so much.” She is choked.
Why are you so sad? Do you want to kill me again with a gunning test? I think in my mind. “I am here”, I try to act fondly and say “Do you live here? Where is it?”
“This is the underground of the island. I am sorry every time when I get out of here to the outside, it will cause the island to division. Don not worry, I can fix it with the ability that you gave to me.” She answered happily.
Why she performs so naturally? Her ability is so strong that I cannot delay the time and have to kill her when she is unprepared.
“Lillian, what the food you cooked in the pot? I do want to try now.” I tell her expectedly.
“That is your favorite fish soup. I bring it here.” She said gently.
As she turns to get the soup, I take out my micro pistol and press without hesitation. “Bang!” A bullet included highly toxic hits into her heart.
She looks back at me and says with a eye-catching smile, “This is the island that belongs to us and I am satisfied with the result. The truth is on the wall behind. The last time I say I love you, my Mark not you.”
Then she falls down forever.
The feeling of broken heart fills my heart beyond control.
I am going mad to find the wall, looking at those familiar scenes on the wall. The frescoes recall my true past times.
As a genius in biology, I secretly created a new varietal people named Lillian when I was 18 years old. We spent the most pleasant three years together. Unfortunately, as the news was leaked, some scientists want to make the technology to illegal ways. Because of my strong opposition, they planned to kill me. It was too late when she found me. The murderers were ready to take me away. Bought with all my research, she began to flee. In order to catch her, those men murdered lots of innocent people and incriminated her. There was no way for her except fled to this uninhabited island and waited for me to take her home.
I know, from the beginning when Lillian saved me, she knew that the real Mark never come back again. The real Mark had been tortured to death. It is time for her to accompany her lover.
The salvation of myself is opening.
Self-destruct mechanism is starting，“Ten, nine, eight……one.”
Mark proudly looked at the words on the screen, “Game over. Congratulations on completing the last link of Dead meets Lead, my dear player—Mark!”
