A Mind Like Mine: Lock Down

The name is Reighly Cain, age 17. The year is 3027, and the planet I once knew as my home has been taken over by false leaders. They have taken First Earth and it's close inhabitants as hostages, and the people of these planets aren't even aware. I will go to any lengths, and do anything, to expose them for what they truly are.

Prologue

 

I can hear it, I can hear the emptiness of my surroundings, the crippling loneliness.

Everything was so noisy to the point of irritation before now. They were poking and prodding at me like some animal in a cage, to them I am probably just that, an unnecessary pet to look at and play with then put away in a cage so they don't have to deal with me.

I'm here without regret, but with heavy reluctance. I got my voice to be heard, I let the people know who and what their precious leaders truly are.

The Leaders' appearances are personas and masks that they wear, they aren't who they say they are, but the people are merely cattle that want to conform to the ideals of those in power.

I've heard it all before, ' I don't have the time to bother with that.', 'Oh, there are many rumors about politicians throughout the years, I'm sure this is just another one of those.'

They don't get it! It's different from some moral-less, selfish, bigoted political scandal! I'm trying to warn them, to save them!

I got the attention I needed, but at a high cost, however, I did stir the pot. Some people heard, some of them learned the truth, and that cannot be undone, no matter how hard they try to erase it, or cover it up.

Words are mightier than the sword, I let my voice be heard, even if it may be my last time, I knew what I was doing was not without its risks. 

So, here I am, in the arms of the very authority that I'm opposing.

Oh, and, I'm now floating in space, on one of the most fortified ships they have to offer. The Lock Down.
