Young Baron Laroux reminds himself that he needs to stay calm.
Having heard the window break, he was able to turn on his homemade Internal-Noise-Insulation suit before the roaming herd of Assassin’s Needles could detect his presence…
Sent by the Robots to clear out any remaining organic life, the Assassin’s Needles could detect not only movement but heartbeats, joints creaking, quiet breathing, stomachs grumbling, and even the sound and pattern of blinking— the human body is inherently quite noisy. The Internal-Noise-Insulation suit dampens these tell-tale signs of being alive, and makes a human somewhat invisible to the Robotic eye.
Baron has seen these Needles kill his family, his friends… even if they were wearing an INI-Suit sometimes. As one of the Needles passes mere inches in front of his face, Baron desperately wishes he could just grab it and snap it in half— the other Needles would certainly kill him, but so what? What sort of life is this, anyway?
He promised his parents he’d stay alive as long as possible, but this isn’t really living… it’s only a matter of time before he makes a mistake, is detected, and feels the sharp poisoned Assassin’s Needle pierce his skull, ending it all. It’s inevitable.
Everyone seems to die quickly, at least… efficiently. It can’t be that bad.
Baron fights the urge to sigh as he decides that he will just have to wait for that mistake to happen, and he won’t make himself die on purpose.
At this rate, he won’t have to wait long anyways.
