Tachibana, Hibiki. A twenty year old freelancer; wandering from job to job, doing whatever you could to make a few bucks. Your latest job is working at B.O.R.D.E.R as a delivery boy, carrying packages from place to place. They didn't even bother to make you a proper ID card, just a guest pass. Nevertheless, they forced you into this checkup. What was the worst that could happen? You thought, and now here you are.
You hand him the card, and quietly wait for instructions. He puts your card into the machine; pressing a few buttons to get it started. "Sit down on the chair." You do what he says, avoiding the mess of wires.
The whole process takes little over an hour, the majority of which you spend daydreaming, with the occasional ?Turn your head and cough." Overall, it wasn't something as evil as inserting a brain chip into your head, and they never brought out any scalpels to cut your head open. Unless... Of course! The machines were used to mutate you into a monster! They used electrical brainwaves to control your body! ...Or something like that. Honestly, you just want to get out of here as soon as possible.
The white haired man readjusts his glasses again for the umpteenth time, he should look into getting a new pair of glasses. "Oh? This is interesting." Did he find your potential for hidden power? Maybe you have some superhuman D.N.A, or the blood of kings. Oh, oh! You're part dinosaur! That would be cool. "I'll be right back, I need to make a few calls." He leaves the room.
"I wonder what that was about." You gleefully detach the countless sensors attached to various parts of your body. It feels refreshing not to have various parts of your body covered in little white squares, it made you feel like you were wearing pasties, but without the sexiness. Ugh. The very thought makes you sick. You decide to move on; checking the monitor for what was so impressive. It was your health exam after all, you should have the right to know.

And that's all you could understand, the rest of the screen had big science-y words that you couldn't understand. What does this mean? You start to wonder to yourself as the man returns, this time with a younger girl with red ribbons in her hair. Something seems strangely familiar about her... Oh. Oh man, she's the head of the company, Hakurei Reimu. Alright, your story is that you did nothing wrong, and you're sticking to it.
"Hello, Mister Tachibana." She glances at the book that Glasses hands her. "How would you feel about extra testing?" You gulp. "Don't worry. Nothing bad will happen to you, in fact, I will gladly pay you for your time.."
You can't do anything but nod your head. The last thing you want to do is get on her bad side, you've heard stories about what she does to people. She could make you disappear without blinking an eye. "Yes Si- I mean, Boss-" You choke. "... I would be glad to." You give her a stiff salute. God help you now.
"Good." She pulls out something strange, a belt? You quietly shudder at the thought of her whipping you with that belt. She puts the belt on a pedestal, while Rinnosuke slowly backs away. She keeps around with it, before putting something inside. She gestures you to move closer. "I hope you're ready for this." Ready for what- ?TURN-UP?
A holographic screen appears in front of you. What in the world? Your boss pushes you into it. You stumble towards the screen before you crash straight into it. Shocks travel throughout your body, as your body cries out in pain. You try to force your way through, but it won't budge. Reimu lets out a sigh as the barrier disappears. You collapse to the ground, breathing heavily.
"What the hell was that?!" You scream, demanding an answer for your pain. This isn't legal, you'll sue if you have to!
"Come back tomorrow." Reimu ignores your question entirely, sighing. She looks disappointed in your performance. "Rinnosuke, fix him up and pay him." Reimu walks away, taking the belt with her.
"I'm sorry." Rinnosuke apologizes while giving you some pills. You give him a strange look before accepting the medicine. "It would be best for all of us if you returned tomorrow. Please don't tell anyone about what happened here either." You scowl at the thought, the last thing you want to do is come back for more 'testing'. ?Believe it or not, we need you to come back." You look him in the eyes, trying to tell if he's lying.
"Fine." You snarl, taking his money and leaving the building. Taking a look at the clock, it's only 7 P.M. You've calmed down enough to actually glance at the money he gave you. One, two, three... Holy shit, he gave you over 100,000 yen! You're rich! You've got cash to burn now, baby!
[x] Go on a shopping spree! You need some new threads!
[x] You're pretty hungry. Get some food first, maybe you can go to that cafe that your co-workers always tell you about.
[x] Wait a minute! You can buy that book you always wanted, plus a few more things! You need to finish your collection after all.
[x] Put this money in a safe place. You're not stupid, you need to manage your money responsibly. No fun allowed.
Sorry, it was already too late when I wrote this update. I did like the idea of a crotchety old man kicking ass though.
