Piasu is seen sitting on a rock sharpening his straight sword. He stops to take in his surroundings. He is in his favorite type of environment, a forest, for the simple fact that he likes nature and all it’s beauty. He puts his hand out so that a bird can land on his index finger. “Aw what a cutie, are you lost? Or are you hungry?” Piasu says as he gets out some bread crumbs with his free hand.
He grabs a handful and holds in towards the bird. Which jumps onto his other hand and starts eating. The bird finishes eating and flies away. A courier comes into view waving a letter in his hand and running towards Piasu. However a Loud bang is heard and the courier flies to a tree from momentum of a fast projectile blasting a hole through his head.
Piasu’s instincts make him jump behind a tree with his straight sword out. He hears loud metallic footsteps on dirt ground slowly walking towards him. Piasu sees the “man” although it isn’t a man it’s some kind of machine, black in color with two bright green lights as eyes. Piasu stands up cautiously. “Who are you and what are you?” Piasu yells at the thing.
“I am an A.i named Mark 1” Said the machine. “What is A.I?” Piasu asked as he is new to this new-age technology. “It is artificial intelligence, smart guy.” “Mark 1” stated sarcastically. “Now no more talk now you die.” He states as he starts to aim at the tree Piasu is behind. Piasu acknowledges this action by jumping up on a branch of another tree, only to use it as a springboard dashing at his enemy.
He slashes his straight sword at his enemy only for the attack to bounce on an invisible barrier. “What is that!?” Piasu growls, and jumps away when he notices the thing aim at him again. “Why, it’s a shield to protect me.” The machine said mockingly. ‘Since when did tech talk?’ Piasu thought as he started working on a plan to break that shield. However the machine started shooting projectiles at the tree causing Piasu to jump down.
He deflected some of them with his straight sword. ‘Thank god my sword’s are strong enough to stop bullets, and my eyes being able to see them’ Piasu smirked as he jumped toward another tree. The machine started flying and dashed at Piasu with speed inhumanly possible. Piasu Swung his sword at the rapidly approaching enemy. This time he hit the enemy’s arm denting it’s armor.
Piasu jumped back ‘How? That swing was perfect and only a dent?’ the machine disappeared. Nonetheless Piasu still could see his outline. Meaning it’s only camouflage. Piasu swung as hard as he could at the machine’s dented arm. This time he saw sparks and oil dropping off the arm.
‘So the shield doesn’t work sometimes, now to find out exactly when.’ When the machine came fully to view Piasu noticed a glimmer of light bounce of an invisible barrier. He focused on that and soon he could see the whole shield. ‘It reacts to light. That’s helpful.’ Piasu thought as he jumped backward and threw some knives at the shield. The machine started firing at him using the bullets to stop the knives and causing Piasu to once again be on the defensive. ‘I need to get rid of that arm.’ Piasu deflected a bullet with enough force it actually reflected into his enemy’s shield.
The machine, fed up with the length of the battle dashed at Piasu. Piasu notice the shield was dissipating. He pulled out SeverSword and slashed at the machine. This time the machine had a sword made of bright green light, the same as it’s eyes. Piasu jumped backwards ending that little clash.
“I am resistant to normal swords you might as well give up and let me end you.” “Mark” stated matter-of-factly. “If that's the case then explain that arm of your’s, and SeverSword here isn’t normal.” Piasu pointed SeverSword at the machine. Piasu and the machine dashed at each other, Piasu pulled SeverSword back and planned to slice with so much momentum that it slices directly through the machine. While the machine has his sword of light, as Piasu is gonna call it, directly in front of him aimed at Piasu. Piasu ducked under the sword and canceled his attack, jumping to the left of the machine.
He swung Seversword into the machines side causing massive damage. However the machine had other plans and slammed it elbow into Piasu’s head sending the man flying through a couple of trees. Piasu stood up on shaky legs bleeding from his forehead with a broken nose and a splintered branch stuck into his side. Piasu coughs up blood but he isn’t done. He dashes at the machine both his swords in his hands.
He holds them both up crossing his arms into an “X” style. He slashes with so much strength the shield cracks but stays firm. The machine kicks Piasu back into the trees. Piasu now has a couple broken ribs but isn't gonna give up. He dashes at the machine with new found speed.
The machine starts dashing at Piasu, whom kicks the machines jaw with so much might in flies into the air a few feet. Piasu jumps at the machine and sends SeverSword swinging down at the machine’s head. The sword smashes the head into a mess of parts and glowing green wires. However, the machine is still moving it slashes at Piasu cutting him and the branch. Piasu starts to spin on his toes so rapidly he turns himself into a sharp mini-tornado, that starts slashing the machine faster than the machine can shield.
Several parts and wires fling into the air, the machine barely manages a it’s shield in time to stop a fatal blow. Piasu’s spinning is stopped abruptly by the shield although it’s cracked even more. Piasu dodges the next hit and slams SeverSword into the machines almost broken shield, which shatters, giving Piasu a chance to end this fight. He dashes towards the machine stabbing it with SeverSword. Piasu then kicks the machine off of his sword.
However, the machine grabs SeverSword tightly and pulling Piasu close. The machine's center starts vibrating and glowing. ‘I have a bad feeling about this, but i’m way to injured to run from this, i’ve used all my energy in such a short fight.” Piasu rips Seversword out of the machines grip and begins running. He gets about a meter away when the blast connects sending him sprawling into the air and towards more trees. Piasu feels his back start to burn when he goes face first through a tree.
Piasu gets up on very shaky legs and starts walking to the dead courier. He picked up the letter and it said,
‘You have been chosen as a test for the military android “Mark 1”, this test is for the greater good of the military of the world please send feedback, if you live.
Love, your Friendly Military’
“F-f*ckin’ lying *-*ssholes” Piasu Said through teeth. Piasu slowly begins to use a emergency first-aid kit. He manages to fix himself up long enough to get to the clinic half a mile away. However, something doesn’t feel right, that fight ended to quickly for the type of opponent Piasu faced. Piasu turned to look behind him and noticed an oil trail 10 feet from him blood trail.
When he looks forward again he is punch through the wall of the clinic, causing the staff and patients panicking out the exits. Piasu manages a weakened swing that cuts the weakened metal of the bot’s abdomen, slicing it’s burnt, dented and cut parts apart. Piasu then goes to the front desk and asks a frightened staff member for help. “I-i’ll even pay for the damage to the c-clinic i have enough s-saved from… y-you don’t wanna know.” He said while coughing up blood. Piasu then fainted on the clinic floor victorious.
He awoke in the clinic room wrapped in bandages with 2 sets of flowers on the table next to him. One, a beautiful bouquet of of Roses and Lilacs, with a card from his sister, and a gift to it right. The other was black roses with a card from the “Government”. Attached to it was a survey.
