[Prefectural Public Radio] ...after the recent information provided by the RCI, they have claimed responsibility for the pandemic that has taken over the southern states and bioregions of Old Trialyson. Survivors from the OT region have also supported this claim upon their arrival at the Secured Ujiah Peninsula Regional Border (SUPRB) six months ago. A total of 81 survivors were rescued and treated accordingly for safety precautions before dismissing into the Prefectures. Word from some of the survivors stated that they had taken refuge on a massive-scale cruise ship near the docks of Lemurian, where they remained isolated from the infected and surviving on the ship's self-endorsement system and hope. More information will be provided after these messages...
I turned off the radio and massaged my face, taking long deep breaths. I'm starting to be convinced that this is hell. I leaned back in my chair as far as it could go.
I leaned back up and turned around in the chair to see third-year Anton holding a tablet and stylus. "What can I help you with?"
"Do you think I can have you participate in a quick poll for me?"
"Uh, sure." I took the clipboard and looked at the list of questions. What future do you see yourself in five years? Is the social structure of Servlaź corrupt? Will the world be at ease? What do you think you could've done differently before the Panic? Do you wish for a savior of some kind? Are you willing to do anything to have your most meaningful questions answered?
I looked up at Anton with a disappointed expression, "Mr. Jukkatiken, what is this?"
"Well, you see, since the last three years, the people of Servlaź have felt to have lost their quiet lives and fear the worst, day and night. I'm having people with strong convictions answer this poll to see if we can change the way we are struggling now. Surely, you too have been wanting a better solution than what's happening now?" I couldn't deny him. I'm unsatisfied with the way the system works now. The Prefectures have declared martial law just after the Panic started and now curfews have been added. The Prefectural leaders are even treating the social classes unfairly based on wealth and heritage. It's Earth all over again. As much as I would love to change the system, it isn't in the interest of government and they have made the rules very strict. Defiance isn't tolerated. They claim that it's for our own safety and protection and that everything will go back to normal in due time, but I don't believe the horseshit they feed to the people.
