The Mall Ninja Chronicles
After years of economic dependance on China something was just asking to go wrong. The problems started when China began supplying us with fewer, and more expensive products. After President Obama was re-elected things only got worse. He botched every negotiation, he signed papers he didn't read that were devastating to our already fragile economy. Americans everywhere wanted him out of office, but without breaking any actual laws, he was untouchable. Things came to a head when Obama finally stood up to China's leaders and told them to reverse their policies and give America fair trade. The Chinese laughed him out of his own office. Several weeks after Obama's very public embarrassment, the Chinese made a proposal that read more like a threat. They wanted an embassy the size of New York city, and 25% of America's annual income. The country was outraged and for the first time in our nations history, everyone cried the same thing, "No!". Obama went over the House and the Senate and agreed to the "proposal". Not a month after the signing China wanted more, judging Obama by his performance so far, they knew they could get whatever they wanted. On July 5, 2017, The Chinese landed a 3.2 million man invasion force on the shores of California. Obama called for them to withdraw to no avail. In less than 3 months, all but three states had been occupied and effectively conquered. Texas, Hawaii, and Alaska, were all that was left of the United States of America. All across the country, malls had become refugee centers for the rebellious and the poor.*
Hartsville, Louisiana, October 1st, 2018
Hartsville is a small town about thirty miles from the Texan border, in Hartsville, there is a mall. Like every mall, it has it's own security guards. It's a small establishment, maybe fifty stores spread out over two stories and roughly 50,000 square feet. Two guards were on staff at all times, known affectionately as mall ninjas. Axxe Fiften had been working security for the mall for 40 years, he was a respected member of the community before and after the occupation. Axxe got his strange name from his father, Hatchet, who had worked security before him. Hatchet taught Axxe everything he could about being a mall ninja, and Axxe was damn good at it. Chinese soldiers patrolled the building in regular shifts, but Axxe was still the respected authority in his little world. The mall was a permanent home to over 800 people, shelters had been constructed with materials from Bed, Bath, and Beyond, persian rug stores, even wicker stores contributed to help make the mall feel more like home. People of the Hartsville mall lived good lives during the first year of the occupation, until one of the mall's security guards was killed. Axxe investigated as best he could, but he uncovered nothing about MrMcCool's sudden, violent death. He had been stabbed through the heart, the entry wound was unique though, it had an almost wavy pattern to it. Accusations ran rampant, the favorite was, "The Chinese! They're getting rid of us one by one!". Axxe quickly dispelled such tumultuous accusations, chinese soldiers didn't carry blades like that. After months the case had gone cold, people settled back into their everyday lives. On October 1st, 2018, a young woman, wearing very torn jeans, and a dirty blue wool sweater stumbled through the front doors of Hartsville's little mall.
