Matthew’s plan was simple. He would get captured and serve as a distraction whilst a rescue operation for Kiara happened. When he first told his advisors of his plan they called him insane and contemplated his removal as the face of the revolution. He laughed at their worries and cryptically replied that he had no intentions of remaining captured, only of removing the leverage the government held over him.
Over the next couple of days Matthew met with scientists, ballistics experts, doctors, and ex-military. When asked about his meetings he smiled at his advisors and said he was preparing a contingency, just in case he wasn’t able to escape capture by the government.
Less than a day later 1-stars everywhere were working tirelessly. Preparations for Matthews capture and Kiara’s escape were keeping everyone busy. Soldier training intensified, weapons were mass produced, and the medical wings were expanded to account for an influx of injured soldiers. If Matthew’s plans failed it would be the perfect opportunity for the 1-stars to invade. With the government focusing on his capture it would be easier to slip past their defences and take out larger targets.
Matthew knew that his arrest would distract the government enough for 1-stars to target some of the more important government buildings and was organising an assault on the central energy plant. What he didn’t know however, was that some members of his cabinet were more than willing to let him go to jail if it meant that another assault could be mounted, and perhaps one of them could take control in Matthew’s absence.
Hey! So this post has taken a while to get out and honestly, I can’t wait to finish this story! There should only be five more posts from Uniform and I’ve written the next three already so we’re almost there! They should be up over the next couple of days and I’ll also be posting about writers block and my experiences with that throughout the writing of Uniform so keep an eye out for that post!
