Whats going on?
Everywhere I looked, my surroundings were being shattered like glass and then it went all black.
Huh? Where am I?
I looked around and I was in some city plaza. I don remember having such architecture in my city. It reminded me of architecture I saw in my history book. Renaissance was it? The buildings were mostly white or off white with a bit of gold paint on parameters like rooftops and windows.
I quickly checked my pockets first. I had my phone but no signals…
It was awfully quiet for a city plaza. Not a single soul in sight. No, there was no one here. At least in my vicinity. I couldn hear anything or anyone. No humans, no cars… nothing. A ghost town? The buildings were all damaged. The windows were cracked or broken. The doors were open as well. I started walking around to see if anyone was there.
I tried looking into houses and most of them still had furniture. I for now theorize that something happened and people mustve left in a hurry. Maybe it was so urgent that they didn even bother to take their stuff with them. Houses smelled like what youd expect from a ghost town. Rotten.
One extremely important detail was that there was absolutely no technology in these houses. No TV, no refrigerator, no air conditioning units. Not only did the architecture look medieval but Im now afraid that I might be actually in the middle ages. I decided to not make much of a sound or call out for anyone. I didn know whether the location was even safe or not. Making commotion would only get me unnecessary attention. What if the city was occupied by some bandits?
I started walking in some random direction. Noticing the Sun, I happened to go in the north direction. I should remember where I started.
I heard something finally!
Footsteps? Bustling? There must be many people. Why didn I notice them from where I had started? They
e loud enough for me to pick them up back there. Whatever, I guess. I quietly kept walking. I still was not sure what kind of people might be here so I need to stay low.
I have to get back home somehow. If Im on Earth, which Im not even sure honestly, I could just ring my parents up and turn myself over to the police and see things from there.
Because I randomly woke up in this place, its safe to assume that I was kidnapped. My parents are rich so I can understand that but leaving me in middle of the city seems rather stupid of these kidnappers so I have to throw this possibility out. I want to avoid investigation so I will just lie that I escaped from the kidnappers and make up some story. I honestly couldn care less right now. Im a student and have things to worry about. Its a sad reality that we live in but getting back home on time for my entrance exam is my priority right now.
I walked into an alleyway which was probably linked to the main market road. I hid behind a trash bin which also didn seem like the type youd see in Australia. I peeked out and saw a bunch of people dressed up walking down the street dancing. Their clothes were vibrant colors like red, yellow and golden. Their faces were covered up with masks that resembled animals and mythical creatures. Tigers, dragons, rhinos and whatnot. It might be a parade. Still doesn explain the earlier silence but I guess I can walk in. I was wearing a pink hoodie and black sweatpants. I wouldn stick out with something so bland.
I walked into a parade with no spectators. Now that I was closer to them I noticed a certain smell. It has to be blood. I looked around and saw heaps over heaps of corpses. So, these were not humans then? Was I facing monsters? Are these monsters the reason there is no one in this town?
My brain came up with two possibilities.
Either people are in hiding or they were killed en masse. Frankly, I didn care about either. One noticed me then slowly all noticed me. I started running at full pace. I didn care anymore where I was going. All I hoped was that I wouldn run into a dead-end. Im too young to be eaten alive. They weren as fast which was good but then I saw a few flying over my head which was bad. If they catch me, Im dead.
I need a plan. An assumption is Im the only human here so, Ill break into a house. The problem in these situations is that when there is a big threat which is clearly impossible to beat, people turn against each other. If someone was there, I can rule out the possibility that they would attack me to either take all the stuff or well in my case, maybe eat me since I don really have much on me.
I started looking around to see if any house gets my attention. If any does, I will loop around and break into it but before I could, someone pulled me in. I fell on the floor and they closed and locked the door and then slid a cabinet in front of the door.
The lights were off but because of sunlight, I could make out my surroundings perfectly fine. So, I was in fact in a different dimension altogether. Getting back home for exams would be impossible. But those corpses… I feel sick. Its so overwhelming that I can even comprehend the scene. Because of adrenaline, the reality hadn hit me but now it was starting to set in. I was still shaking from fear and my heart rate wasn even going down. My legs felt so weak that I couldn get up. So, am I in a hopeless position? Is there no way out of it?
As I was processing all the information and forming questions, someone poked me. Oh right! The person who pulled me in. I looked up and saw 2 girls. One seemed to be the same age as me, around 17 or 18 but the other girl was significantly younger, maybe 7-8. The older one had rose gold hair which was shoulder length. She was wearing a worn out sundress with shorts underneath. Her dress was a really dull shade of blue with patches on it. She looked extremely weak. She was definitely malnourished. The younger girl was almost a copy of her. You could easily tell that they were siblings.
”Thanks for saving me. ” I finally said and stood up.
”He looks tasty! ” The younger girl said enthusiastically and the older girl nodded to her statement.
Is it some kind of kink? Do they mean it in a matter of fact tone? I honestly can tell.
”So whats your name? ” The older girl asked.
”Kara… ” I replied unsure of whether I should even give my real name or not. Though I ended up giving away my real name. ”Whats your name? ” I asked in return.
”No need to know that. You
e dying anyway. We will remember you forever. No hard feelings. ” The older girl said before pulling out a knife. She tried to stab me but I could easily tell she was an amateur. Being the only son of a rich person, I was taught self defense from a really young age. I never actually disliked it since self-defense is really important. What if you somehow run into two siblings who are into cannibalism? Anyways, I kicked her away. There was a massive gap between us. It was somewhat stupid for her to even attempt. Unlike me, who lived a healthy life, she barely had any muscles. I could tell both of them were going through hard times so I felt bad for them. Of course, they want to kill me but Im not heartless… not COMPLETELY heartless. Anyways, I snatched the knife away from her and squatted down to be on the same level as her.
”Bother to explain? ” I asked and she was confused at first.
I didn see any will or hope in her eyes. They were dead. Maybe the moment I defeated her she gave up. From the looks of it, maybe cannibalism is normal in this world. I could come up with endless theories but I hope she gives an actual answer.
”You don know? ” She asked in a confused tone.
”I.. guess. I was attacked earlier and it seems like Ive lost my memories. ” I lie as easily as I breathe.
”Makes sense… Well about 1 year ago, these demons showed up from nowhere and took over 1/3rd of the continent. Right now the unoccupied nations of the continent are trying to hold them off but they
e barely holding a stalemate. A single wrong move could result in the end
