Blocking another swing from the robots, Akira's sword grinded with the robots' bladed weapons again. There was no stopping with all the robots coming towards her direction. Although they weren't the stronger versions, Akira had been fending them off for the past hour. Everytime she destroyed one into nothing but broken heaps of metal scraps, more popped out of nowhere with their hostile eyes glaring at her. She had already used up one of her two smoke bombs on her left hip, but the smokescreen still didn't provide enough time to let her escape.
"Do not resist arrest," one of the robots called out in their monotone voices. "You will not be hurt."
"Can you even land an attack on me?" Akira taunted back, before landing a devastating swing onto the robot, destroying it instantly. "Not like you will hurt me with those flimsy arms of yours."
But can I really hold them back much longer?
Akira found herself asking as she continued to put on a fight, while running deeper into the alleyways of the city in an attempt to shake the robots off. The reason why the robots had been chasing after her for the past hour or so was because she was incomplete. An incomplete Augment. Before being the thing
that she was right now, Akira was a human being. A human being that had blood flowing inside her instead of the electricity currents that was keeping her alive now. Now, all that's remaining is her human face and her hair, and even so she dared not to leave her face fully visible to the public eye. She cannot let her loved ones see the 'person' she is right now. However, who were her 'loved ones' anyway? Why did she cared about that matter when she doesn't even remember her own kin? In fact, what are her roots? What are her memories? What is my identity beyond 'Akira'?
Not the time to think about that, woman, there's another turn you should take.
Immediately, Akira took a turn left with lead to a fence that she could flip over. Just then, she finally thought of a way to escape. Grabbing onto the last smoke bomb that she had, she took it off and activated it, before throwing it onto the wet concrete that was slightly cracked. After a few seconds, it went off, hurling a huge wave of smoke directly to the robots in front of Akira. As the robots stood there startled, Akira took no chance to breath and climbed over the fence, before taking another turn so that the robots couldn't find her when the smoke vanished.
"Jesus Christ that was close..." Akira panted, while facing her back against the wall to feel a small sense of security. "Ever since I escaped the compound a month ago there has never been a time for me to even catch a wink of sleep."
She then turned to look at the high-rised building that she had leaned her back on. Guess I gotta go up then.
Clipping her sword back onto her back, Akira jumped and grabbed onto the pipe that was running along the building, before scaling up the pipe quickly to reach the rooftops. After a few seconds, she was finally on the rooftop of the building, with the cityscape view right in front of her.
Well...where to now?
