Ch 4 Norah’s Confession II

Norah: Biological Warfare wasn’t exactly what I’d file my husband and I under. Although, it does seem to be the only place to put us. Nucleotide Shufflers?Neuro-Assasins? Shit. I really couldn’t tell ya.. I just know we were some fucked up nerds. The viruses we came up with weren’t your everyday plague. When it came to a job, we didn’t really didn’t like to ask the specifics. God knows they’d almost never tell. But lemme tell ya, the US government definitely has had some major vendettas.

Although, we did do a custom order for a certain news correspondent. Remember when GNN’s Lisa Henson and her camera crew went missing covering the unrest in Syria? Yeah, well, they actually found em.

[Lighter striking]

[Inhaling/Exhaling]

Henson is a stage name. Her actual name is Lisa Gryzbowski : Niece of Phillip Gryzbowski. Phillip just happens to be the CIA’s leading Military Analyst. The head scumbag behind her disappearance was Syrian gang leader, Adad Ashear. This worthless piece of shit was responsible for her capture, gang rape, her murder, and the crew’s. ..Big mistake.

We wanted to serve somethin’ cold for this bastard. SEALS went in and bagged him, chained his limbs to the floor of a van, and injected him with a Nociceptors heightening cocktail. For those of you who need a quick Neuro lesson, Nociceptors is a pain signal. This bad boy when injected will make the breeze on your skin seem like a slug from a Louisville. Nociceptors firing at 5x’s the rate? Let’s say once they broke the third toe, I imagine you couldn’t see the whites of his eyes for the broken blood vessels. That baseball bat to the ankles prolly caused him to break a few molars, I’m sure. SEALS took their sweet time that night.

Anyways..shit like the fore mentioned.

So, when this situation was brought to us, I thought ‘We’re to manipulate the biological makeup of a bug? Are the even bugs? I meant, 8 ft Mantis-like creatures.. That should take a couple metric fuck tons’a Raid.’ That’s not what Brand was thinking, however.

[Inhaling/Exhaling]

Buried deep in Nexx Industries files was our former baby. It was a project we had worked on a few years prior after Apes A, B, and C showed little to no signs of change post injection. Yes, we ate the forbidden fruit. We feasted on the tree of knowledge. We were attempting to play God in some regards.

But because we could manipulate someone’s nervous system, DNA, and overall genetic makeup then we knew we could improve them by a couple fold. We as a human race could become something more than the bags of flesh we are. We could become a more superior class of life form.

Brand wasn’t much of a science guy but he did know a few things for sure: 1) We would need to bring the fight to them on their turf so as not to cause panic to the masses on ours. 2) is that our weapons had already proven useless against them. We simply needed to rise to their level of power. The military needed an Intergalactic branch. That’s where we came in.

He asked us to reopen Project Warlock.

Project Warlock was it’s own brand of synthetic genome that blended in and layered with that of human DNA. It was the crazy crack head of the body that seemed to blend in like the wallflower at the party. It’s aim was to strengthen neuro networks thru rapid brain Genesis..and create even more. You’d be using 100% of your brain and then some. Making epinephrine and Lysergic acid dye-eth-el-a-mide part of one’s DNA Is NO easy task either lemme tell ya. One would say it was damned near impossible..but we did it.

Unknown: Lyser-..LSD?

Norah: Vera, please.

Vera: Jesus.

Norah: We knew that the only way we were going to have a valid test a result is via a human host. We may have been some blasphemous geniuses, but we’d never throw ethics completely out the window. If not a stranger, then we agreed that we would die for the cause. I mean if it came down to that. We –we decided..

[Sniffling]

..we’d go together.

[sniffling]

[clearing throat]

Norah: I injected him, he injected me. We hooked up the vitals gear, EKGs, and strapped on our EEGs. We were so excited. We were going to “Compose a symphony with our heart and brain waves.” as he put it, “Our hearts and minds will be the modern day Psalm that would sound of hope, glory, and praise to this supreme evolution of mankind.” Before we sat in the leather reclinersI remembered he-he..kissed me and said “I love you so much..” He was “So happy he got to share this crowning moment” with me. He was so sure..

[Brief Silence]

I DIDN’T KILL JAMES!

Vera: Norah it’s ok..

NO! IT’S NOT! JAMES IS DEAD GOD DAMNIT!! I DIDN’T KILL HIM..I DIDN’T KILL HIM..I WATCHED HIM DIE, though! HE RITHED IN PAIN AND THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO..THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO!! CAUSE WHEN I LOOKED into his eyes that’s when..
