I’m Adam Link and I was born in 2124. At the time of my birth, the government was conducting experiments to create a superhuman race. Everyone was lining up to receive the cognitive enhancement brain implant.
This implant enhanced human cognitive abilities, increased longevity, and regulated bodily systems (for example: the chip would send a notification if your blood pressure was high). Those who received the implant, were known as TECH Humans.
My parents were a part of a small group known as the Purist. They believed the human race should remain pure (without technological enhancements). When I was born, they refused to allow the doctors to give me the implant.
Everyone thought my parents were crazy. How would I survive in a world full of TECH humans? How will I ever become a successful or productive member of society? Basically, everyone believed the best I could hope for was to become a janitor.
Twenty years later, a routine upgrade was being done on all TECH humans. However, something went terribly wrong. The chip started killing their physical bodies, but the chip remained functioning. Dead people were walking around, without a conscious and reduced to their base animalistic nature. This was the beginning of the TECH Zombie War.
Purist from all over the nation gathered together and tried to devise a plan to deal with the situation. TECH Zombies were killing everything in their path and it looked like the human race was about to face extinction.
It was a horrible time. We went scrounging for food or supplies, but many of us were killed in the process. Hope was failing fast.
The only way of stoping the TECH Zombies was to destroy the chip. I realized our only hope of survival was to create a virus that could deactivate all the chips at the same time.
However, the main upgrade system was in the heart of the city. To get to the building we would have to fight our way through a hoard of TECH Zombies.
My parents had put a lot of effort into my education, so I was created the virus. Every Purist that was able to fight willingly joined the crusade. We used any weapon that was available to us and created armor out of scape metal to protect us during the battle.
The fighting was fierce and it took several hours to get to the upgrade center. Finally we made into the building. We had to use a makeshift explosive to get into the main hall. A lot of people died to get us this far, but we never thought about stoping our mission.
I uploaded my virus into the system and prayed for a miracle. I was looking out the window at the TECH Zombies and all of a sudden they started thrashing about and then they all collapsed into a heap.
I was screaming, “It worked. It worked.” The human race will be saved and now we can start rebuilding.
To all the people that thought I would grow up to become a janitor, in a way they are correct. The TECH Humans left a mess that I will be in charge of cleaning. However, I am not just a janitor. I am also the savor of the plant. I am Adam Link, the hope for future generations.
