“The chemical is out! Someone has sabotaged the containment unit.”

The little man with glasses looked highly distressed as he told his news to the General. The General turned his head and paced for a moment, deep in thought.
“I had hoped it wouldn’t come to this, but there is no other option. Put this facility on lockdown, and start the self-destruct sequence. The work done here, must never be found out.”
“Like h---!” replied the man, “I’m getting up outta here.” He turned and ran for the door. BANG. A neat little hole appeared on the man’s forehead. His body slumped to ground as blood started to pool around him.
“You won’t be going anywhere,” said the General coldly as he walked to a door at the back of the room. This led to a long corridor, in which the General opened a strangely colored door. He walked through the door frame and faced an enormous computer. The General typed a code on the keypad.

I liked it... especially for a beginning of a novel. Just wish there had been a little more explanation, but maybe that's your idea... to leave us a little bit confused and explain it as you go along. Love to read what you continue! (By the way, I think we're neighbors. Raleigh native also...)
