2. Season One: Last Survivor

[Sector D][2075][4/12]

Ever since the Berserks had dominated the world above, the remaining humans have been surviving underground. Humans sealed the underground terminals and connected them to create one major city by each country. Hunting has been impossible due to the danger of encountering a berserks, so farming has been the most productive method of gaining food supply. Everyone had a work in the community except for the children under 12. However, there was one person who was free from work. He was exiled from work for many reasons. 

Inside of a tent prepared for the survivors, there could be seen a nameless boy. His parents were already dead when the Scavengers, the expedition team, found him outside of the underground city. Although he could have been used for workforce like people from his age group, but he had no useful talent, at least for the underground city. Children in this city are to be educated until they are 12, but he was the only one allowed to continue his education. 

The chief of the Sector D City, Samuel Evers, gave him the authority to do anything within common knowledge. Everyone else in his age was jealous for getting such treatment, but none of them knew how difficult his true occupation was.

The boy was the one responsible for building weapons in the underground city. When he drew the designs, it was the job for the blacksmith to prepare a part with exactly the same dimensions and details as what was detailed in the blueprint. 

"Hey! Gears!" Robert Lions, one of the youngsters from nameless boy's age group, came up to the workbench.

"..." The nameless boy refused to interact with Robert. Judging from his tone of voice, he knew that Robert was up to something. Not a single person from his age group has came to him with a friendly intention.

"You building that junk again?" Robert taunted with grin expression on his face. He kicked off the workbench, causing every component in the table to fall off to the ground. He was laughing along with his friend in the back.

"..." The nameless boy sighed for a moment. He grasped the nearby crossbow and aimed at Robert and his friend. Robert and his friends weren't able to laugh now. It was the nameless boy's responsibility to send his weapons every time a new one is complete, so when he was finished, Roberts and others would come to trouble him. However, he didn't know that the nameless boy was making a weapon for himself. The pale expression on their faces showed how trouble they looked better than any words. When the nameless boy released his aim, they walked out without much words.

The nameless boy, tired by this situation, leaned backward on his flexible office chair. 

Looking toward the crossbow that he had created, he wondered what was his purpose of living. 

Was it to create food for everyone else?

Was it to save those in need?

It was to create weapons that will lead to destruction.

The nameless boy truly hated this job.
