Fort Bragg, N.C. — An organization commander is expressing shock and dismay that after six years within the Military a future murderer has but to journey again in time and try to kill him, sources confirmed in the present day.
Capt. Ben Hawkingson, an organization commander with the 82nd Airborne Division, has completed each objective he’s set out for himself to this point so far together with: being promoted beneath zone, taking high honors at West Level, main the scout platoon, intriguing in opposition to buddies throughout Ranger Faculty ensuing of their getting peered, and instantly taking command of B Co, four/325, third Brigade, 82nd ABCT upon arriving at Fort Bragg. Regardless of all Hawkingson’s successes so far, the longer term has but to achieve backward to cease him.
“Boundless ambition? Test. Contempt for subordinates? Test. Rejection of enlightenment values mixed with a burning need to usher in a fascistic, military-style dictatorship with myself on the helm? Test, and test,” mentioned Hawkingson. “Why haven’t I been focused for elimination by a temporal agent determined to cease my inevitable rise to energy?”

Regardless of all Hawkingson’s successes so far, the longer term has but to achieve backward to cease him.
“It wasn’t till after I acquired a silver star for heroism in fight that I noticed my true potential,” Hawkingson mentioned. “At West Level, I knew I used to be destined for greatness, however every thing started to fall into place for me after the award. Now, I do know what I’m meant to be: chief of then newly-formed United Federation of American States. So why has no temporal agent from the longer term been despatched to destroy me whereas there’s nonetheless an opportunity?”
Hawkingson mentioned that he compulsively checks his rear-view mirror whereas driving, anticipating at any second that leather-based jacket-clad, sub-machine gun wielding operatives despatched into the previous from a dystopian future will pursue him on Kawasaki Ninjas. He retains a loaded pistol within the glove compartment of his truck because of this. Hawkingson additionally enrolled in a defensive driving course that taught him easy methods to keep management of a car that’s being attacked by a single well-trained martial arts knowledgeable with cybernetic implants or waves of monomaniacal assailants.
“I don’t do drive-through any extra,” mentioned Hawkingson, “not since my awakening. And I attempt to keep away from tolls, too. I’d be a sitting duck.”
Whereas Hawkingson admitted that there are most likely different threats he’s lacking as a result of the motivated and fanatical resistance his regime will inevitably provoke has but to invent them, he tries to maintain his thoughts open.
“Science fiction movies and tv programming appear satisfied that the longer term will embody directed vitality weapons, and it’s already fairly straightforward to make use of drones proper off the shelf,” he added. “Subversive assassins might have entry to the kind of expertise obligatory to regulate teams of them to rain down loss of life from above or beneath. Submarine drones! Give it some thought.”
One other chance, which Hawkingson thought of briefly earlier than dismissing it, is that point journey isn’t doable.
“I suppose it’s doable that in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later, my daring scheme is thwarted, there may be that,” he mentioned. “My plots have by no means failed earlier than in fact, together with once I sabotaged one other platoon chief’s packet for Particular Forces choice. But when I did fail, I suppose there can be no want for an enterprising, ageing quantum physicist to dedicate his life to vengeance after I someway trigger the loss of life of his solely beloved daughter.”
One factor is definite, in line with Hawkingson.
“In the event that they don’t kill me, in 15 to 20 years, you’ll be able to count on both a presidential run from yours really, or a no-holds barred navy coup,” he mentioned. “In some way. It’s occurring.”
“Except somebody thinks they will cease me!” he shouted, turning to the sky.
