Hey guys going to start the same thing with Proud Infinity, give sections of a story out each day and the whole book will be done in about a month. This story is about a guy who is a start athlete and is caught and forced to play a deadly version of the game. The whole story is over at amazon for 99 cents right now.
The violent sport of Gun-Drift still endures with its popularity, despite calls to stop the game, or the occasional rumor of illegal/deadly versions. Nearly every planetary system contains an Arena that has Gun-Drift among its events and carries a tremendous public following. There have only been a few substantiated reports of these unregulated Arenas, but have proved difficult to close down the tight crime rings that keep them in operation.

“Don’t look at me with those eyes,” he warned as I kept my gaze coldly focused on the man I hoped I would one day kill. His flunky clubbed me in the stomach due to my noncompliance, shouting “Listen to ‘um!” in a drawl. I tried fighting my head and eyes upwards to him one more time, but the shock rod hit me in the back, knocking me to the floor. I staggered one knee up, starting the say the name “Fe…” before I heard the whine of the electrically charged rod hitting me one more time; I went down, blacking out before I even hit the ground, unsure if I was saying his name, or the name of the girl I loved. As my world shut down it would be the last time I saw the natural light.
Somewhere in an abyss of unconscious thoughts swirling without any guidance, a vague sensation of something slipping down my eyes eventually became overpowering. “Uhhh…” My partially comatose body rolled to the side, but the strange spilling sensation continued. Like a shock across my body, the lightning strike of awakening blasted across my physical and mental states as I opened my eyes and found myself looking at the rusting pipes of a fixture.
‘Where am I?’ I rolled to the side as I saw the teal-colored thin wall of a repulsion-field extending from the ceiling to the floor; excluding the light this produced, the rest of the locale I now found myself in was dismal, dark and dank.
