Amarokette

Post  Tryscar on Mon Oct 10, 2011 7:17 pm

In the bustling city of Tyton, home of the slave market headquarters of Tryscar known as ServaCorps, one of the auctions is being held in a busy marketplace.

The large room is lined with interactive LCD screens mounted onto computer terminals where the crowds of potential customers can browse through the "product selection" screens and shop. Each product, or slave, is pictured and listed along with basic information such as gender, age, race, height, weight, working capability, tier, and other statistics.

A man neatly dressed in sharp-looking business attire mingles with the crowd, checking to answer their questions and ensure each customer's satisfaction. He seems to work there, and his identifaction card reads "Alain Josson, Assistant CEO." One customer asks about a specific product, ID #5137-T3, and the man comes over to check.

"What is this "Amarok" tribe? I've never heard of it before."

"Interesting, I believe that's one of the tribes of Shilain. I wasn't aware we had any available from there. Perhaps there's an error in the system. Let me take a look."

Alain steps over and brings up the product selection page to look.

The product selection screen would show a young girl wearing tattered red robes. Her hair was a dusk-brown and in the lighting of the photo it seemed a grayish-black. Her ears were that of a beast, long with gray fur running down from and at the ends the fur turns white. She had a matching tail though it would not be seen in the photo. She was not smiling or showing any kind of emotion, she look as if she were looking into a different world, looking through the man's soul.

The Product Selection screen would read:
"Gender: Female
Age: Early Twenties
Race: Amarok" and so on...

Alain studied the photograph carefully, as if he saw something in the photograph that no one else did. He knew that there was something...different about her, and for some reason, he felt like he had to know more about her. He looked at her picture for a few moments, then cleared his throat to turn back to the customer.

"I'm sorry, sir, but this is an inactive listing. She's not for sale." He was lying straight to the man's face.

"Are you sure? It says she's for sale. I'd like to buy her. Name your price, I'll pay anything that you'd like... - "

"She's not for sale," Alain repeated.

After some more debate, the customer sighed and walked away, slightly irritated. Alain turned back, looking at the picture again, and tapped the "Select" button on the screen and typed in some more information.

Meanwhile, a few minutes later, one of the guards of a holding cell in Tyton entered the sector where the slaves were held until they are sold. He wore a dark uniform with a handgun at his side and came up to the cell where ID# 5137-T3 was held. He rapped on the wall outside of her cell.

"Fifty-one thirty-seven, get over here. Time for you to go."

She stood with a quiet strength about her, she had accepted her fate as a slave and had prepared herself for it. she approached the door where the guard had called from.

The slave would be bound by cuffs behind her back, with a slim silver collar around her neck and plain white clothes.

The guard entered a code into a security terminal at the side of the cell. The powered cell door un-sealed itself and slid open, disappearing into the wall. He stepped forward, taking the girl by the arm and pulling her from the cell. Another guard waited outside and while the first guard held her, he slipped a small card into a slot built into the back of her collar. He had updated her tracking information, although he didn't take the time to explain what he was doing to her.

Next, they led her down a long hallway and into a sealed room with dozens of other slaves, all of which were accompanied by guards. The slaves were of many different ethnicities, shipped here from all over the world. Most of them looked scared, some were crying or even sobbing uncontrollably, and a few tried to fight against their captors but were overpowered and grappled, taken to the ground, or tasered until they were subdued. They were all being filtered through a large doorway on the opposite end of the room, leading down yet another hallway where they were sorted and then loaded into vehicles to be shipped to their destination.

5137 was led through the same process as the others. The guards and processing officials were fast and efficient, moving each slave through the processing station as quickly as products on an assembly line. She was searched, checked over, and had her collar's tracking device updated several more times. Paperwork was verified, a few photo references were taken, and her fingerprints and a DNA sample were taken. Earlier, when she was brought in, she had been branded and tattooed with her ID number at the back of her neck - this was double-checked frequently as she passed from guard to guard in the processing station before finally being brought and loaded into the back of one of the vehicles with a few other slaves.

Suddenly, one of the officials stopped a guard to check 5137 before she was brought to the vehicle.

"Is she T3? Looks like a T5 to me. Never seen one like this before." He checked over her information again. "She's listed as 'Amarok'...what the hell is that?"

The guard shook his head. "She was sold as a T3. Don't know what she is, or how she got here. But she's sold already."

After some more inquiry from the official and yet another update of her information listing her as a "T5" she was brought to the loading dock. The vehicle there was the size of a large truck, and there were about ten slaves stuffed into the back. 5137 was the last one loaded in. It was like a crate inside with only a few benches at the sides, armored and without any windows or chance of escape besides the hatch at the back which was tightly sealed and latched after a few armed guards loaded up into the truck. After everyone was loaded, the engine started up and the truck rumbled deeply as it got ready to pull away from the processing station.

She struggled very little when they were updating her tracking information though she didn't know what they were doing. She walked slowly, watching the movements of the guards who accompanied her and also observing the other slaves. She sighed quietly, regretting that she could not help any of them. She remained silent until the man jerked her back to ask if she was a "T5", she groaned a bit and struggled as he pulled her hair back to see what her listing was. After that she calmed herself again and, looking off into the distance, she aloud them to load her into the vehicle without any complications.

A dark-skinned, heavy-set man with a shaven head and intricate, swirling scars curving around his face was sitting next to 5137. He looked angry at his imprisonment, and the girl might have recognized him being one of the slaves that had resisted the guards in the processing station. In addition to the slave collar and the cuffs, he was shackled. It seemed like this man and most of the other slaves were from the same region.

He looked around at the other slaves with a deep sense of sorrow, pity, and fury at their captors. It seemed as if, given the chance, he would burst forth at any moment if he would be able to free himself and the others. He especially seemed upset that the young girl sitting next to him was enslaved. He quietly spoke to her, trying not to attract the guards' attention.

"You there...where are you from?"

One of the guards heard a voice, but he didn't catch which of the captured people were speaking. He banged his fist against the side of the truck as a warning.

"No talking!"

The truck's engine rumbled a bit louder as it started to pull out of the loading dock. The slaves couldn't see where they were going, but they could feel the vibrations of the engine as the truck started rolling.

She noticed the other slaves staring at her, she bowed her head a little, they were sure to notice her ears were different. Her tail was hidden by her robes, so at least she could pass them off as a religious practice. She spoke quietly to the man even after the guards had reprimanded them.

"I'm....from Amarok....a small forest tribe to the east of this nation."

The rumble of the engine was loud and the guards were talking amongst themselves, so they didn't notice the slaves whispering from each other.

"I'm from Kyanon. It's...gone now."

He glanced around carefully, watching the guards.

"My name is Akhmar. Do you know where we're going?"

She kept her head down so that her ears would be covered by her hair.

"I've never heard of a kyanon in these parts. I don't know where they're taking us....I suppose to another holding facility."

"No, Kyanon is far from here. Very far. I heard that we've all been sold here in this city. Most of the men are being put to work. The women...I don't know..."

Akhmar trailed off, as if he didn't want to think of their fate. Even the hardened Kyanite soldier was disgusted by the thought of slavery.

"What's your name?"

The truck came to a stop briefly. The hatch was unlocked and opened for a few seconds, and the people inside the truck may have been able to see the side of a dark building and a street for a moment as two of the slaves sitting inside were hauled off by a guard and "delivered" to their destination. The guard returned quickly and sealed the door behind himself as the truck started moving again.

She was starting to trust Akhmar and lifted her head, revealing her animalistic ears.

"My name is Kona...I'm glad to have met someone here that I can trust....though I wish it were under different circumstances."

One of the guards glanced up as Akhmar was about to open his mouth to speak again and caught him.

"Forty-one seventy-three, I told you to be quiet!"

As he approached Akhmar and pushed the man back against the wall of the truck, another guard came up behind him and stuck him with a taser for a few seconds. Akhmar jolted wildly, slamming back against the truck as he was shocked into submission. The guards were now satisfied that Akhmar would shut up, and they stepped back towards the hatch of the truck after tasing him. It took Akhmar a few seconds to recover and he was visibly shaken and weakened. He reluctantly kept quiet, giving Kona a sad but reserved glance now and then.

Kona was infuriated by their how the guards treated him. She stood from her seat and called out the guard.

"How dare you, your sickening!" her fire of anger burned in her eyes and she was baring her fangs to the guard. She waited for the man to react, having already thought of a strategy for subduing him.

The guard didn't seem intimidated by Kona. He held up his taser again.

"Shut up. None of you are allowed to speak. One more word and you'll get exactly what he got."

She refused to back down, the pride of her people would not allow such cowardice. She maneuvered for wrist in the chains and pulled one hand part way out of the cuff, dislocating her thumb in the process.

"Your people survive off of forced labor and disgusting trades, I don't care if you hurt me. I'll get my words in by and by." She shifted her shoulders to pull her hand further, this was unnoticed by the guard.

Just as the guard was able to lunge forward and tase Kona, the truck slowed down to a stop. One of the other guards called out.

"Come on, get over here and quit fucking around. Help me unload the next ones."

The guard reluctantly left Kona and helped the others. The situation was diffused for the moment, as several more slaves, including Akhmar, were quickly unloaded just like the first group had been. There were only four slaves left in the back of the truck now, including Kona. The guards resumed their position by the back hatch of the truck.

Kona sat down and returned to her cold expression from before, she was merely waiting to arrive where she knew she would be enslaved for the rest of her life.

Akhmar looked back, his eyes gleaming with sorrow and fury as he looked upon his fellow slaves - especially the other Kyanites. For a split second that seemed like an endless moment, Akhmar's eyes met sympathetically and helplessly with Kona. He wondered what would become of his people, but whatever this young woman would have to go through would certainly be worse, he thought. For once, fear streaked through this proud Kyanite's soul - fear that he would never know what would become of these people, and he knew that there was nothing he could do about it. As Akhmar was shoved out of the truck, he disappeared from view and was gone.

The truck shut its hatch firmly again after the other guards returned. As the vehicle started rolling once more, the silence was consumed by the rumbling of the engine and the steady vibration of the wheels against the road underneath them. Seconds would seem like hours as the truck rolled on, with only a few slaves left inside to be "delivered" to their new owners.

Kona saw the fear in Akmar's eyes and felt deeply saddened that she was not able to help him. She sat silent and solemnly until the doors would open and she would be shoved out like the rest.

The truck made a few stops to drop off the rest of the other slaves. After an agonizing wait alone in the back, finally it was Kona's turn. The truck pulled up to a stop, and Kona would be able to overhear the driver speaking.

"Delivery for Mr. Josson?"

"Yes sir, this is the delivery from ServaCorps."

"Pull up to the front, please."

One of the guards checked her ID number again and commented to the other guards.

"This is the one going to Josson?"

"Must be, she's the last one. Damn. He's got good taste..."

"Come on. Let's unload her. Careful, now."

Unlike the other slaves, Kona was unloaded gently. The guards took her by the arm, standing her up and guiding her to the back of the truck. She was unloaded carefully, as if they didn't want to hurt or bruise their "product" as she was led out of the truck.

The landscape that Kona was led out into was shockingly different from everything she had just gone through. Set against the skyline of a city in the distance, there was a large, welcoming estate home with crisp, clean, white architecture and sprawling green lawns with finely trimmed trees and shrubs. A paved cobblestone driveway gracefully circled around a softly gurgling fountain lined with flowers and mural stonework that led up to the front terrace steps, spanning a line of strong, slender pillars arching across the large glass double-doors of the home. The guards handed her over to two men in dark suits and sunglasses who were waiting outside the front of the home as they calmly approached her.

"Hello. Welcome to your new home. Please come with us."

She stayed silent and walked with the men. frightening thoughts ran through her mind and she trembled. Thoughts that she had been purchased for her looks and for her body and not her strength. She thought that could be the only explanation for the serine environment she was going to be living in. However, she had already thought about the chance that this may happen and had come to terms, no matter the fear inside her, she swore she would withstand her treatment. She kept her head down again to try to hide her ears, she hadn't known her picture showed them and she didn't want her owner to have more reason she was exotic and foreign.
