The Retirement Plan

Where a Hunter for the City, Kex Atto, approaches her retirement. But in the City, circa 2254, retirement means death: you don't work to live, you live to work. After this, the City has no furthur use for you.

[Friday, 10 March 2254 | 1 Day Until Retirement]

What the fuck is going on?

There was that needle, and now I’m drifting in and out of consciousness…


…I can’t move, and that light on the ceiling is filling my vision with sunspots…


…That Animal. Is that a buzz-saw she’s holding?

Shit, is she moving it towards my chest…?


…Like seriously? What the fuck?

What the fuck is she doing…?


…Where’s Rikkard? Does he know about this?

Is he letting them do this to me…?


…Still no Rikard. Where is he?

“Rikard? Rik? Honey?”

I hope he’s okay.

Rikard?

I love you…
