JC Denton was walking in a dark alley, behind 'Ton Hotel. He had to do a job for the Illuminati, he had to kill one of the people who threatened the new world order. He was seen in Hell's Kitchen, asking questions about him. But he asked the wrong people. Jordan Shea called him saying that someone was looking for him. A Mech.

He was about to get up to the fire escape ladder, to take a look on his brothers room, when he heard something falling from the roof. He didnt have time to react when Adam Jensen landed with force beside him and knocked him of his feet. With just a thought he activated all his nano augmentations, just to be ready. It was a good move. The aggressive defensive system was beeping so loud that he was going mad, but he was content. Jensen was about to make his first bad move. The mini bombs from the claymore augmentation exploded prematurely, wounding Jensen seriously, leaving him gasping for air.

"You must be Adam Jensen. Morgan Everett says hi."

Jensen gave an angry look at the young augmented agent.

"You are getting too old for this. Now why dont you spare yourself a lot of pain from our interrogation experts and tell me what i need to know right now."

Jensen's mind was working hard. He wasnt dead and it was a matter of time before his regeneration augmentation would kick in, and then he would end this young fool in a matter of seconds. He just hoped that Denton didnt know about this power.

"Well...," he paused for a few seconds, pretending that he needed to take a breath, "what do you want to know?"

"Tell me the name and were i can find two of your associates. Just two will do, I am not greedy."

Jensen felt the chemicals working through his body. He had to stall him for half a minute.

"Why are you doing this? Dont you see that you are...," he faked a cough to gain time, "that what you are doing is hurting people? You are just protecting the elite. People must have a chance to be free and be happy at long last. After all that they have been through."

"People dont know what to do with their freedom Jensen. Normal people need leaders to guide them to the light. I know that we have failed in the past, but now, the new world order will be for the greater good. People will be happy, you will see that Jensen, even if only from the prison. Now why dont you tell me what i need to know?"

"You are mistaken, and i cannot let you get away. The Illuminati must be stopped."

And with that words he kicked Denton back, and jumped back in cover. He took out his shotgun and started firing at Denton. JC took a hit at his left arm before he activated his ballistic augmentation. With the help of his speed augmentation he grabbed some cover too.
"Health Regeneration? Seriously? Didnt know you mechs could do that."

"The industry has grown before the fall Denton. Much more then you imagined. They couldnt handle the logistics of handing out medical kits so... You should have done your homework!"

Both of them were trading shots, but no one could hit the other, and even the few shots that did hit, the augmentations minimized their effect. But now Jensen heard sirens. The police was coming. He had to act fast. He cloaked and started running towards Denton. JC listened to the footsteps and noticed that Jensen wasnt firing anymore. He activated his vision augmentation. The sonar image made Jensen visible again. He was just a few meters away, blades coming out of his arm. JC didnt have any time to react. He activated his Strength augmentation and grabbed Jensen's arms. The two man were struggling to turn the blades against each other.

"Bet you thought you were invisible, didnt you?"

"And you thought you were all powerful right?" said Jensen as he started to slowly overpowering Denton. Nano augmentations were designed so that the agents could blend in to the public. Mech augmentations were much more crude, but a bit more powerful and that little bit made the difference that moment.

Denton had to act fast if he was to survive. He cloaked, let go of one of Jensen's hand and reached for his EMP grenade. Jensen with his free hand stabbed Denton in the torso but at the same time the EMP grenade exploded. Denton took a few steps back and dived for cover. Jensen knew that he had to recharge his bioelectric level or he would not have a chance. He jumped up to the fire escape ladder and from the he got to the roof of the 'Ton Hotel.

"It was foolish of me to think that i could take him on like that. I dont know if i can get out of this alive. He is too powerful, too diverse, too smart and too dedicated to get me. His augmentations are a mystery to me, but he has faced Mechs before. Damn, he even killed Gunther," he thought as he was getting to the roof.

Unbeknown to him, Denton made the exact same thoughts. The revelation that this mechs physical power was higher then his, was a shock. JC used his medkit to heal every wound from his last battle and four bioelectric cell's to recharge his bioelectric energy. He had to get him this time, because if he got away and learned more things about him, next time he might have bigger problems....

To be continued...
The protagonist from the Original Deus Ex game, JC Denton, fighting the protagonist from Deus Ex Human Revolution, Adam Jensen.

Everyone is free to use it and change it if you like as long as you include a link of the original at the end. But if used for commercial purposes, i would like to be asked first.

Very well written. Fast paced and your descriptive of their differing augmentation makes this Deus Ex fan very happy. Why? Because you have taught me much about a character I knew nothing about. I started playing this series from Human Revolution and fell in love with Adam. JC on the other hand, I haven't got a clue. So, on to part 2 to learn more about him :clap:.

Oh, thank you! :D It really means a lot for me that you liked it! 

 You should really play the first one! Put some points in hacking and stealth around to listen to conversations! The level of writing is far beyond anything else I have seen in games! What better way to wait for Mankind Divided? :D

I'd like to, but my PC is not game compatible. Heck, it'd have a heart attack and melt down. Lol. We're struggling to upgrade our XBox in time as it is. Maybe one day in the future though :D. And, I'm sorry, but I'd probably laugh at the graphics without really meaning to. I used to play stuff like that myself but to go back to it now after the awesomeness we have today... :O.

How can they meet?
DDentonas Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Professional Writer
Well, like I said in the introductory paragraph, Jensen was seen in Hell's Kitchen, asking questions about JC, so he(Jensen) could stop him and the Illuminati. Jensen would be about 60 years old by that time, but well, augmentations dont age!

Like it! Good work :D

So.... this takes place around Denton's timeline?
DDentonas Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012  Professional Writer
Yup, after the illuminaty ending. I had in mind a lot of stories, like someone hiring Jensen to stop Denton so their plan to use a copy of the universal constructor to make enough augmentations to make a small augmented army and fight back the "tyranny" of the Illuminati could have a better chance to succeed.

Sounds legit.

I love this, I want to read more. Well written and very plausible skirmish. Good job!

Thank you very much! :)

Any plans on making the next part?

I dare say I am intrigued. Poor Adam must be grey in the hair now at least.
DDentonas Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010  Professional Writer
Yeah, he is 60 years old! But the way i think about it, only his reflexes and his knowledge about modern day combat gadgets suffer (JC's augmentations included)! His augmentations keep him fit enough to fight and his years give him experience.

I was thinking about making the next part and i have some ideas, but honestly i thought that no one cared :D But since you do, i better get back to work! :w00t:
EricaLeeV Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep, I care and I am sure others do, but are too shy to speak up. C:

I would also think the future *raises hand into the air*...there would perhaps be enough breakthrough in the medical sciences so that humans could be vibrant for a longer period of time in their extended lifetime.
DDentonas Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010  Professional Writer
I hope so, not that i mind making a story for just one person, but others would be welcome!

I have no doubt that in our world medical science will advance to the point you describe. I even hope to live for one thousand years!
But in the world of Deus Ex, people have trouble to stay alive for 30 years! Such technologies would be available only for Bob Page and other really rich people!

Adam Jensen, in the fresh.
