Two days passed before Matthews plan was ready to be executed. It started out fairly simply. Three teams would be sent out to complete targeted attacks on government intelligence buildings. Using the chaos as cover, the 1-stars would overtake the national broadcast and Matthew would be on every screen across the nation. Once that happened Matthew would speak to the people whilst the government tracked him down. After that, the plan depended on what happened to Matthew once they tracked the broadcast.
As the first of the three strike-teams left Matthew made his way to the safe-house med-bay. A tall doctor stood at the entrance, having expected Matthews arrival.
“We finished the weapon this morning as requested sir. You will only have one shot and it must enter his blood stream or the drug will not take. If you want it to have any effect though, it must be done publicly. Nothing will change if this happens in private. Before the news spreads our window will have passed.” Matthew nodded at the doctor’s advice and asked to see the weapon.
The doctor led him to a table with a few rebooted monitors on top of it showing schematics Matthew couldn’t read. The doctor handed Matthew a thin metal pen and showed him how it worked.
The pen was a shell holding a poison. Matthew would have to stab the point into the flesh of his target and press the cap to release the toxin. As Matthew headed towards the door the doctor called out and gave him one last piece of advice.
“It is imperative that you break the skin. If you don’t the poison will be useless and you will be in more danger than if you were simply captured.”
