4 very different kids named Messenger Deception, Baroness Lagomorph, Chase McFly, and Korra Anoethite find themselves in a barn one stormy night. The last thing each of them remembers is a flash of bright red light. Together, they must find its source.
Darkness. Darkness was all Korra Anoethite saw as he lay there. He was slightly uncomfortable and felt hard ground underneath him. He slowly opened his eyes. As he opened them, he saw he was in a barn and that it was nighttime. Cool fresh air from outside was blowing in. He then turned his head some, his neck stiff, and saw three other teens. Two girls and one guy.
The other guy was named Chase. Chase McFly. He was not hurt at all, he did not even feel uncomfortable. He just felt a bit bent out of shape as he woke up in the unfamiliar barn. He had a dark secret he wanted nobody to know. He also saw 3 other human beings beside him, but was not as confused as Korra.
Over in a corner laid a Neko girl named Messenger Deception. She shivered from the cold, she couldn't remember anything from her past no matter how hard she tried. The only time she could remember anything was when she was asleep and she would forget when she woke up. She slowly woke up to see 3 other people around her and she had no clue who they were.
Korra leaned up and opened his eyes fully, taking in his surroundings. He was in a barn, it was night time and was also raining outside. He quickly glanced over at the other teens and scooted away. He didn't like being around other people that much. He had bad experiences with them..There was only one person he ever got along with. Her name was....then it hit him. He didn't remember her name or barely anything about her. He then realized he had barely any memory at all of events past. All he could remember was a blinding red flash of light and then utter darkness. How did I get to this place? he wondered. Why can't I remember anything?
Chase felt his neck. There was a sharp object protruding from it. A microchip, he thought. But he didn't remember why he had a microchip or why there was a plasma sword where his arm should've been. His body began to beep. "Bad weather detected," he said automatically, without realizing it was sure to wake the others up. He wasn't too fond of humans-as he wasn't one. He remembered that he was an outcast. Always rejected for being too nice. Left to deactivate...he had been chopped up into pieces 10 times. He also remembered a name: Marty. There was also a bright red light, and an abandoned factory. Then Chase realized that the majority of his database was empty. It was as if he had been left with just a few memories-he had no idea how he had ended up in the barn, and could remember nothing else.
Messenger sat up and looked around her, she saw two boys and a girl. Her eyes widened as she looked around and she saw she had broken pieces of a chain around her ankles. "Where am I? What happened?"
Chase looked at the feminine entity who spoke. She had two feline ears and a long tail, but was otherwise completely human. "What is the name you were christened with? Also, we are in some red, dark, animal station filled with horse food."
"Why the heck are you talking like that?" Korra said, standing up and backing away.
"What do you mean, I am just speaking my traditional normal linguistic pattern. Is it disturbing to your skull walnut?" Chase answered, walking towards Korra.
"Nothing, dude. Simmer down." Korra backed off more as he doesn't like standing close to other people.
"I know not this odd modern slang "simmer down." Can you please use a more viable alternative? Also you may cause immense painful feelings to your noggin if you back up more." says Chase, who begins to examine Korra's taste in fashion.
Korra shook his head and backed off to look outside at the rain. "It's raining pretty hard."
"Yes, that extreme downpour of acidic precipitated water vapors is highly noticeable." Chase said, accidentally slicing a hole in the window with his plasma sword.
Korra glanced over at him as he sliced a hole in the window and shook his head.
"I am not understanding your physical state to be drastically feverish the way you continue shaking your head back and forth as if it were on hinges. Maybe you need a new oil filling." Chase said, becoming concerned about Korra.
"Wtf? Wtf did you just say to me?" Korra asked, confused.
"Ah, your simpleton human skull walnut cannot comprehend my vast intelligent vocabulary. Fine, if you would rather I communicated in your language: "Your repeated shaking of your head is making me really worried for your health." Chase said.
The last girl stood up. Her name was Baroness, like the others, she had no memory of anything before that day either. "Can you two like stop?" She asked. "We need to figure out how we all got here."
"If you insist," said Chase to everyone. "I can easily make an assumption: this experience has to do with a scarlet-colored, marvelous bright electrical current source. That is one of the few things I remember.
"All I remember is a bright flashing red light." Korra said.
"That's what I proclaimed, although some memories remain in my database," Chase replied.
Messenger slowly stood but slightly shook in fear from the two boys.
"Who are you guys?" Baroness asked. "I mean, what are your names?"
Messenger tried remembering her name. "I..I think my name is Messenger. But I'm not 100% sure. I can't remember anything. Who are you people and how did I get here?"
"My name is Cunning Human, A-I forget what the A stands for-, Synthetic Emotions MKI, creation of Marty McFly, but you can just call me CHASE. McFly should-I mean, is also my, ah, given surname." said Chase, puzzled about what the A meant. He wasn't sure the H word was right either. He was also trying to use the lingo of the loner masculine human entity when he proclaimed and explained details about everything. "It is fantastic to make your acquaintance, Messenger." He added.
"Dang, that made my head hurt." Korra said, rubbing his head.
"I'm way too confused now. Um, what was it you said and please say it in English this time?" Messenger asked.
"This natural language you call "English" is the traditional linguistic pattern of my superior people. Essentially, I too am coherently communicating in traditional English, as I was programmed for it. I was also programmed to be villainous but unfortunately failed miserably. Again, the name I was given at my creation is Cunning, uh, Human A-something Synthetic Emotion MKI, also known more simply as Chase McFly, after my wonderful creator Martin McFly." Chase explained, hoping they would understand.
"Make him stop! All this smart talk is making my head hurt!" Messenger cried.
"I am completely unable to simply alter my speech patterns, although there is a very convenient way you can change my natural personality. The button is here on my App Circuits, press it with your phalanges, thank you." Chase apologized.
"Ew, no!" Korra yelled. "I don't know what a phalange is, but it sounds dirty."
"It's the little limbs connected to your grabbing device on your natural upper-body lever, which make it especially easy to do all sorts of activities." Chase explained.
Messenger started giggling. "You two are sort of funny in a weird way."
"Do you mean fingers?" Korra asked Chase.
"Yes," Chase replied. "Let me warn you, this app makes me talk like a simpleton, but it also has other extreme capabilities I am unable to control". He stood back and was ready for the button to be pressed.
"Then just say fingers, dude!!" Korra exclaimed.
"But that word is so informal." Chase pointed out. "Now will you activate my BattleMode app or not?"
Messenger walked over to Chase and slowly active his BattleMode app. "I don't know what I'm doing, so I don't know if I did it right." She said.
"Oh my gosh!" Chase said, sounding odd. "Who dares to make me mad? It cannot be you, cat lady, because girls can't fight. I will still threaten you, as you are in my way! But I am never going to fight a lady.” His attention then turned to Korra. “Was it you? Your kneecaps might make good hockey pucks."
Messenger jumped back slightly then said: "Wait, did you just insult me for being a girl?"
"I'm just saying, girls cannot fight. I gotta say, though, you're cute." Chase replied.
Messenger smiled a bit before slapping Chase. "Girls can fight, baka."
"Baka? What's that?" asked Chase, crashing into the wall that turned off his BattleMode app and knocking him onto the ground.
Messenger's eyes widened. "Chase?!"
Chase then got up from the ground. "Whoa-what happened?" he asked. "Did I get shut off?-oh wait a minute. My BattleMode app was engaged. Let me fix my abilities..."
Messenger looked confused. "Okay."
Korra looked over. "Eh."
"Why do you utter such odd one-syllable slang, Korra Anoethite?" Chase asks. "Also the intellect that resides in my brain has returned and is here to stay."
"Wait, how do you my full name? I never told you that...I never even told you my name..." Korra said, confused.
"I have my ways," Chase laughed. "Now let's find a way out of this enclosed animal station."
"Dude, it's pouring down raining." Korra said, pulling his black hoodie over his head and pulling on the strings to make it tight.
"Well, logically, judging from my advanced hi-tech weather system, the acidic liquid water vapor will cease to fall in 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1!" Chase concluded as the rain was stopping.
"What the f-" Korra said, stopping himself. This is weird. He thought. He backed away from Chase and the others, hating to be near people.
"I'm a bunch of wires and electricity in a metal body, I am not a person." Chase revealed. “Now that the falling acidic liquid water vapor has ceased, does anyone want to venture out of here? I see a very beautiful lake." Chase noticed, looking out the window.
"Eh, I don't really care." Korra said.
"Personally, I think we shall all exit the premises now," Chase said, walking out the large entrance.
"What?" Baroness asked.
"We need to go taste the great outdoors," Chase said as he dropped his plasma sword.
"What?" Baroness said again, confused.
Korra headed outside, the grass was still wet. "Eh," was he said.
"That's just my plasma," Chase explained. "Now, who wants to know more about where we are?"
"I do, I guess." Baroness said, crossing her arms.
“'Basically," Chase said. "We all just woke up here with no memories.”
"That’s not what ‘basically’ happened,” Korra said, “that is literally what happened.”
“True.” Baroness said, shrugging and feeling cold as it was still damp from the rain.
“Also, why are we still just standing here at the entrance of this abandoned enclosed animal station? " Chase asked.
"Don't ask me." Baroness said with a blank stare on her face.
“Why must you speak like that?” Korra asked?
“It is probably because my brain is like a microcomputer. A micro is a computer that is tiny enough to be embedded into a person's head. Underneath my false hair is where my microcumputer lies, sending all sorts of information to my android body.” Chase explained.
"Your existence makes my head hurt." Korra said.
"What did you just say?" Baroness asked, looking mad.
"I was talking to Chase." Korra said.
"You guys have such walnut-shaped spongy brains." Chase said, sighing.
"Oh really?" Baroness said, ready to push Chase into a ditch.
"Yes, that fact is absolutely correct," Chase remarked.
Korra slowly backed away, wanting to get away from the group.
Baroness then kicked Chase. "Come at me!" She yelled.
"BattleMode Engaged! How dare you kick me... " Chase growled. Chase grabbed Baroness' head and began flopping it up and down. "I will make your kneecaps hockey pucks!”
"Wtf?" Korra said.
"Hey, I'm not some toy!" Baroness yelled, kicking Chase away.
"Ow...what happ--" Chase began as he fell in one of the water puddles located next to the barn and deactivated.
"Ummm…." Baroness said, worried.
Korra looked over. "Eh, he deaded."
"Error-error! Circiuits disconnected. Please reconnect circuits." The wristwatch on Chase's arm beeped, it was the only part of him that was still sticking out of the water. "Bad substance detected. Please remove."
Korra stepped back. "Whoa, we actually broke him."
"We know, Captain Obvious, we know." Baroness said, rolling her eyes.
It was then that Chase's android arm crept out of the water and wrote in the mud: "Please reactivate me."
“How??” Baroness asked.
Chase's arm then wrote: "Pull my body out of the water and dry it."
"Dude, that is freaky as hell." Korra said.
"Hey Korra, aren't you gonna help me carry 190 pounds?" Baroness asked.
Chase's arm then wrote, "Then restart me by pressing the restart button. I will be good as new. I have moved my consciousness to this wristwatch, but need my body back."
"Please? You know I can't carry this by myself." Baroness said, rolling her eyes.
Korra walked over and began helping her.
"Do it fast," Chase's arm wrote. "Pull me out. Also, using small words is especially hard when I write."
"Are you going to put me on land and reactivate me or not?" Chase's wristwatch telepathically communicated to Baroness.
"Okay, Okay, geez," Baroness said, dragging Chase to land with the help of Korra. Korra then proceeded to reset him, with Baroness and Messenger watching.
"Th-thank you for your assistance." Chase said, as soon as he was reactivated. A flash of red light then stroke in the distant, highlighting the already dusk sky in an eerie red glow.
