A Weapon's Journey
by Frank Martin
Living in poverty with his abusive father, Adam Judson never considered himself special. Not even when the authoritative American government abducted him to be part of its secretive weapons program. But becoming a highly-trained child soldier was just the start of Adam's journey. After being condemned to undergo the program's most brutal procedure, Adam became a super human of unimaginable power. Now he faces the burden of deciding if his newfound abilities make him a god or just another weapon.

She fired a single shot with her M4 and the bullet pierced straight through the wall as a scream came from the other side. Breaking their tight formation, Wolf kicked in the apartment’s front door and discovered Adam in the living room, leaning against the wall and bleeding from his shoulder. “I see you have new toys.”
“Just for you,” she replied, her weapon trained directly at his head.
The other two soldiers followed her into the room and Colt smiled as he squeezed the trigger. “Too easy.”
Diving over a hail of green gunfire from Colt’s weapon, Adam sprung up and kicked Colt straight back into the wall. The injured super-soldier then raced around the room as Wolf opened fire, her shots trailing just a split second behind his movements.
Aiming at a spot ahead of Adam’s path, Raptor timed his shot and fired his launcher as Adam passed him by. The grenade round connected directly with the super-soldier and exploded in a green burst, blasting him straight through the wall and down to the street below.
Impressed, Raptor held up the lightweight weapon with a smile on his face. “Damn. Can I use this thing all the time?”
Barely paying attention to the question, Wolf answered him while helping Colt up to his feet. “Stay focused. We still have to finish the job.”
Wolf and Colt wasted no time leaving the room, but Raptor trailed behind, confused by her comment. “Finish the job? But I just hit him with a grenade launcher.”
