BEEP. “Situation update, army defense mode is proving to be ineffective.”I heard in my head. “Didn’t I tell you to shut up already, I can see that!” I yelled out angrily, losing my balance and stumbling forward to a ledge that was sticking out of the ground. BEEP. “Useful information update, a new mode has been added with your recent upgrade called Total Defense mode. It is an upgrade to Army defense mode, it has a one thousand percent increase in weapons fire rate would you like to activate the new mode now.” It said, and I could almost hear 24’s smirk attitude in it, but at least this was useful. “Yes, that’s useful now activate it.” I said back to it hoping it would activate and not have any glitches in it.
“It is recommended that total defense mode be used at the center of the attacking force at the highest point you can find.” The system said, then I felt something pulling at my chest like it was trying to pull my Star-core right out of my chest. I started to move to the top of one of the buildings so I would have a clear firing path to all the enemies. Then the voice came back as I struggled to move, trying to fire and climb at the same time.
“Activation beginning, increasing the maximum number of active weapons.” This is new. I thought as I reached the top of the building I was climbing and started running to the next one so I could get even higher. “Maximum active weapons increased from 88 to 125.” The voice said as I limped from building to building. I could see new weapons appear and start firing all around me, but none were disappearing. I could get used to this, I thought. “Maximum weapons now at 175 accessing all available weapons from army defense mode and enabling them.” I was almost there just a few more buildings to go, then would be at the highest one in the city and I could stop. “Active weapons increased to 200, now starting weapons rotation. Please release main weapons now.” The system’s voice said.
Now I was a bit confused. I always held my main guns in order to aim and fire the rest. But if it’s part of the new mode, I’ll do it. I just hope it works. I open my hand and dropped my two guns. As I released them, all the others stopped firing and fell to the ground all around me. “Yep glitches. Just like I thought, I hate testing new upgrades in a battle.” I said, watching the rain of weapons fire heading right for me. “Weapons rotation engaging, maximum active weapons increased to 225, resuming fire now.” Just as the rain of weapons fire reached me, my weapons lifted off the ground, started firing, and then beginning to spin around me in rows, each spinning in a different direction. “Weapons increased to 300 active weapons, rotation speed increased to three rotations per second.”
I looked all around as my weapons spun around me firing, with more of them appearing with each passing second. “Active weapons now at 400, total defense mode is approaching Fifty percent activation. Would you like to disable overdrive mode now?” The voice went off in my head, I looked around at the army above. They showed no signs of stopping, so I was going to give it everything I had until they were all destroyed or they ran off this planet altogether. “No, keep overdrive active.” I answered.
“444 active weapons now reached, 50 percent activation now reached.” They still weren’t on the run yet. In fact, I could see more ships coming in for an attack, which meant if they got in range, they would do some serious damage to the city. “Warning total defense mode can only remain active for 30 seconds at 100 percent activation, would you like to active to 100 percent or remain at 50 percent activation.” This was bad now if I could only fight at full power for a few seconds, I might risk the city if they held out. But if I don’t I risk the city now.
I took a deep breath and spoke, hoping it was the right choice. “Activate to 100 percent.” BEEP “Removing all safety limits, releasing energy limit output, warning this is going to hurt.” The Nannies voice said in my head, then it hit me, knocking me to the ground, then instantly pulling everything out of me. “500 weapons active, rotational speed slowed to one rotation per second. Firing speed has double.” I could no longer see out of the hundreds of guns surrounding me, all I could see was a faint light coming from where they were firing to, and the light from their barrels as they fired. “600 weapons active, releasing final safety and drawing all energy from Star-core. Damage to Nannies will begin to occur in 45 seconds.” The system voice said, and with that I knew this wasn’t going to be fun.
Pain ripped through me worse than the pain of being shot, I was approaching my limit, and all I could do was hope it was working. “700 active weapons, Nannies will begin to be damaged in 20 seconds.” The pain increased more than I thought possible, I lost it and began to scream out. The armies began to flee as the ships let loose with everything they had all aimed right for me. “800 weapons are now active, activating Nannie ejection fail-safe. 100 percent activation in five seconds.” Those five seconds moved by slowly as if time had come to a stop just to wait before the end. My screams grew even louder as I floated off of the ground in the center of the dome of weapons floating around me. Energy was pulled out of me in huge bolts of lightning into my weapons as the final 88 appeared.
“100 percent activation reached, 888 weapons are now active, weapons are now entering overdrive mode. 30 seconds remain until Nannies reach critical damage levels.” My weapons spread out more and began firing faster than ever before, as I did my best to hold out for the thirty seconds. “Firing rate has reached its maximum at 20 million rounds per second. Incendiary range has been set, all incendiary rounds will now detonate once at rage. They are 15 seconds remaining before shut down.” The voice said as the skies light up as if the sun was at the rim of the dome as the rounds exploded and destroyed everything. The armies fled, and the ships that had opened fire were now being ripped out of the skies. Even the dome that covered the city was being ripped away.
“Five seconds remain, Nannie ejection fail safe is now prime for use.” All around me my weapons were glowing with heat as they fired, I could see out from behind them, and all I saw was a cloud of fire pushing out in every direction. “Nannies have reached critical damage, control has been lost of all weapons, Nannie ejection will now commence. All systems will be unavailable until Nannies have been restored, have a nice day. Goodbye.”
A sudden shock went threw me and then a blast from all around me, sending all my weapons flying out. I hit the ground and heard a massive explosion as my weapons exploded, wiping out the rest of the attacking fleet and blowing away the dome over the city. “Coco are you…” Everything went black as I blacked out.
