A RUDE AWAKENING
CHROMO'S PL: 2,000
In this dimly lit laboratory nothing but the machines met the gaze of the dozens of passing beetle drones. There was no movement and no odor of any kind to come to their senses as several began to buzz, a good dozen hiding in the shadows and eyeing the few who walked these hidden halls. There were lights, but like the stars in a night sky they did little to lift the blackness, showing only the activity of the hardware- plasma screens of gigantic proportions with text that's too small to make sense of. The feeling inside was more of being in a high tech cave the size of a stadium, black metallic roof above, black metallic floor below. The hum of machinery was like a soft whisper in the background. Every footfall, every machine clunk and every bug buzz echoed around, not loudly, but enough to give away a passerby's position to anyone who happens to be concealed in here.
A pair of brown eyes, narrowly and weakly opened, surveyed their surroundings. He could move, but only barely. Chromo's eyes glanced about the tank he was concealed inside, eyeing the many bright holographic panels dotting around the room. He twitched his wings, several wires and tubes attached to his form shaking as well while several monitors surveying his vitals began to beep and buzz. How long had he been here? Chromo had been drifting in and out of sleep and unconsciousness. He felt so weak- so frail. His form felt ready to give in at any moment, and his stomach could cave away from hunger right about now.
Chromo's red abdomen flashed bright for a moment as his eyes closed again. Scarlet specks of energy crackled around his form while his head lowered. The budding bio-android's atennnae twitched as a low alarm began to ring while his energy began to condense and charge... In the midst of the low alarms, he could hear the familiar echo of footsteps in the hall. The bug opened his mouth and eyes again, glancing down to see who entered his confinements...
