The Senator rented a house in the suburbs of Detroit to stay in while we work for Max. Then for some reason, three helicopters flew towards our house and dropped off a bunch of soldiers. A senator from Michigan was in one of the helicopters as well, so it seemed the government was out to get us now. How we went from trying to stop a drug trade to this is rather unclear to me.
Anyways, Gravitron and I were hiding on the roof, and we decided to run. Unfortunately, one of the helicopters spotted us and pursued us. I found a hiding spot and aimed to snipe the pilot if necessary, but Gravitron threw something and hit the pilot through the glass, and then caught the ’copter. But then, a very strange sensation came over me, and I heard a voice say, “shoot at the helicopter until your gun is empty.” Then my arms and hands seemed to move on their own accord, and I was helplessly shooting my rifle. I must have gotten very unlucky, because after my third shot, the ’copter exploded! I was flung through the air and my body throbbed in pain, and I barely held on to consciousness. A man suddenly appeared and grabbed me, despite me attempt to dodge his grasp. And the world shifted. I found myself in a van with no windows, and a woman in the van gassed me, and I passed out.
When I came to, I was in a bed in a hospital. I was wearing a hospital gown, and I had none of my gear. Gravitron was in the room too. We were both strapped to our beds. I had some strange, hazy memories that I was supposedly a convict and I was on my way to prison, but I knew them to be false. I attempted to get out of my constraints, but I couldn’t quite get my hand out. Then a nurse came in and gave Gravitron a shot and he passed out. The nurse then gave me a shot, but I resisted the drug, and I pretended to be knocked out as well. Then I heard a couple of people come in and I overheard the same senator that was on the helicopter. He and a couple of nurses were arguing about whether their plan was going to work or not. After a while they then left.
After they had gone, I tried to get out of the straps again, and succeeded. I then woke up Gravitron, but he was acting very strange, and he didn’t seem to remember me at all. I freed him from his bed and talked with him, but he still didn’t remember anything. He was convinced that we were both criminals on our way to prison. He was wearing a strange silver headband on I head and I realized I had one on too. I tried to take it off, but it shocked me when I tried to. After talking with Gravitron for a while and much trial and error with the headbands (and much very annoying shocking), he started to remember me and himself.
After a while, we noticed there was a woman in the room with us. She was strapped to a bed like we were and unconscious. To me she had silver skin, but Gravitron said he saw normal pink skin. We woke her and freed her from her bed. She didn’t seem to know anything except that she was a convict on her way to prison. She also thought she had normal skin. I’m sure there is a way to safely remove the headbands, but I can’t seem to think of it. There is a lot of things that don’t seem to make sense to me. How was information stolen from Max? Which government agency has Gravitron and I captured? And are they planning on leashing everyone with powers with these headbands? It is time to bust out of here and get some answers.
