The prophecies have spoken of a teenage boy who will bring about the fall of Cesarius' regime. His name is Marcus.
"My lord. The prophecies have spoken of a teenage boy who will your demise."
"I WILL not be forced to go on my knees and beg!!!!!!!!"
"Y-y-y-y-y-yes my lord"
I turned around and headed to the balcony of the arena. I was looking foward to the final games.
I headed into the catacombs below the stadium and grumbled as I headed towards the arena. I was the first one called to fight. Anyway, as I reached the stadium, two automatic doors swung behind me and a automatic female voice said, "Choose your weapons: Ancient or modern" I was shocked. I had expected to only be able to choose from weapons like swords. Still, I favored those ancient weapons so I said ancient. Then I was shown a variety of weapons and I chose a double sided spear and a circular shield (all shields are resistant to guns). Mechanical arms came out of the ceiling and dressed me in full battle armor and gave me a shield and a double sided spear. As I headed towards the arena, I heard the blood-thirsty crowds cheering. I looked across the arena and saw my opponent. He was armed with a laser gun and had no armor. At the balcony at the top of the arena, I saw Cesarius' ugly face and he said, "For this heat, it'll be a classic battle, no restrictions. Let the battle begin!" He fired and started spraying at me. I raised my shield and held my spear over it, in an offensive one man phalanx formation. I continued going slowly at him until he ran out of bullets. Then, I ran at him and bashed him on the head with my shield. He collapsed and dropped the gun. I raised the spear above my head and looked to Cesarius. He gave me the sign to kill and I plunged my spear down at him.
Later, I learned that the pairings and winners for round 1 were (People who died are crossed out):
Kennethy and Dawn
Taurence and Cesar
Tanya and Alice
Kurt and Jonathan
We were given a few days to "cool off" before round two began. Everyone who had survived immediately went to Otaru Beach, the most beautiful spot place ever.
