Gamers' Challenge – Tee

The following is an excerpt from Chapter 23: Preparations

 

'Listen up, everyone.’ Tee climbed up onto a couple of storage crates as the Outers gathered around him.

‘We’re in for a hell of a fight.’ He paused. ‘And, in all honesty, I don’t know that we can win it.’ He paused again, choosing his words carefully. ‘But we have to try. Not just for ourselves, but for all future Outers. Because if there is one certainty in this contrived, artificial, imposed world – it is that there will always be more of us. There will be other characters, other versions of ourselves –’ he looked directly at Tark ‘– who will stand up and say No. So for the sake of all these future Outers, as well as for ourselves, we now come to the point where we must again say No. We will not lie down and die. We will fight for our existence. We will fight for our freedom.’

A cheer went up from the Outers.

‘Win or lose,’ continued Tee, his eyes moving about the common room, meeting gaze after gaze. ‘Whatever the outcome, we will achieve it without the Designers. Win or lose, we are free!’
