When I Laid My Eyes on You
Arc 1: Chapter 2
Castiel coughed, Eyes glinting dangerously
he took in his surrounding. He was currently
at the middle of an abandoned building, sitting
behind a flipped desk. He thought that the
original was probably hiding from something.
[Host, Please receive the memories of the
His current body is Bastian Valentin, an actor.
He was a very popular one at that. The world
he was in is currently in an apocalyptic phase.
The humans were no longer the predator. The
animals turned into man eating species. The
dead did not remained dead for too long, They
started changing and turning into something
that craves flesh. The world is currently
purging the toxicity of its inhabitants.
Bastian Valentin is now in an abandoned
factory, hiding behind the office desk. He was
supposed to go to his home when suddenly,
chaos and madness descend. A dog suddenly
turned crazy and started attacking the people
around it. All the animals run wild, biting and
eating the humans they come across. The
people bitten convulsed, then started to turn
into a living dead.
Bastian did not panicked at first, he had
bodyguards to protect him well. however,
having a bodyguard Is not enough. They started
being killed and turning into monsters one by
one until no one was willing to protect him any
more. Some of the bodyguards left, leaving Bastian alone.
Bastian ran by himself, fending and
fighting for survival. He felt lost and unable to
accept the situation the world was currently in.
That was until he met Martin Arden. A soldier
from the military base camp not far from the
city he currently resides in. Bastian saved
Martin from being devoured by the night
walker. A night walker is an infected
that has the ability to see and move at night. Normally,the undead seems sluggish at night. probably due to the fact that the muscles of their body starts to harden due to the cold temperature, as well as the fact that they don have their senses except for their sharp hearing.
Apparently Martin led the nightwalker away
from his bestfriend and his lover. Both civilians
and apparently ”too weak to fight ”. Martin
saved the two, saying that theyll meet at the
camp, believing that it should him who had to
sacrifice. Martin was supposed to die but
Bastian, unable to watch just like that, decided
to save the man.
The two became friends and made a name for
themselves. During this time, the humans
also started to change. theres no such thing as
super powers and magical elemental abilities.
What changed is their physical prowess.
The humans now have a Supermans body
instead. They can fight with their physical
Bastian and Martin are also one of those
evolved human. Both able to fight continuously
for days without rest. They returned to the
military base camp where Martin was
supposed to be.
There, they were welcomed with such an
enthusiasm, they felt It was unreal. However,
they learned that they were now famous for
their outstanding fighting prowess. Thus , they
were entitled for such grand welcome.
There, Bastian also met the lover, Eusto, The
man simply looks petite. Bastian felt that he
can probably snapped the smaller mans neck
with just his hand. Eusto is the best picture of
a twink. It might sound offensive but it was the
truth. The man has light blond hair, Light brown
eyes framed with such thin yet dark lashes. His
nose cutely looks upturned and his lips the
color of strawberry. His skin looks so pale and
soft, it almost made him look sickly. Standing at
56, Bastian had to lower his head slightly just
to meet the others eyes. Eusto is the cute type. The one to be protected in a group.
In short, he looks weak.
Then, He also met the current son of the heaven, Allen.
The man is tall, almost reaching Bastians
height. He has bronze skin, black eyes, and
handsome countenance. He looks like an
exotic model. The type of man, categorized as
tall dark and handsome. Hes the typical alpha
The two were currently standing at such close proximity, it made you question whos the lover
Bastian felt that the two seem intimate.
However he stopped thinking any further,
Martin explained that the two were close
because Allen is an adopted brother. Besides,
he had no interest in such issues.
The four of them decided to team up. Every
week, the people at the base needs to gather
supplies and take on missions assigned for
points to buy materials and rent for the homes
allocated. Living at the base is not for free.
They took in missions that seems impossible
to accomplish and each Time returned with
success. Eusto learned how to survive as per
Martins teaching. And Allen seems to finally
become a superhuman just like the two.
Bastian felt that its good to have such a team.
So he let his guard down.
One time, they had a mission. It was a mission
for two teams to work together. Eusto
suggested to team up with a lieutenant, Along
with four others.
The team seems friendly. They laugh, joked
and even talked about Lives.
and thats what led Bastian think that they
such a good people. Unable to really defend
himself from the betrayal after the success of
Bastian died, he was thrown as a bait. He was
eaten alive by the undead, unable to fight
because his limbs were cut off. It was so painful
dying like that. Due to having a super body,
his regenerative ability is much higher than
normal humans, he heals while being eaten
then he died a miserable death. The sad part is? He wasn able to protect his only friend Martin.

Castiel blinked, truly surprised at the mission
interface. It was such a simple mission, it
almost made him think that it was a bonus

Castiel stared at the gift pack, eyes lingering at the storage space item. ” Such a good gift ” Castiel whispered, his voice had a smooth and sexy baritone, it can make the listener turn soft just from hearing it.
He really felt satisfied. He stood, patting his clothes as he walked towards the exit.
[Where are you going, Host?] System 25 mechanical voice ask. It watched as its host walked without a Care in the world. His gait filled with such lazy elegance, it made it think
that this world is simply a walk in a park.
”Going to find Martin. Wouldn it better to follow the originals memories? Why make things harder when theres already a well laden path to take. ” Castiel answered, hetero chromatic eyes, one blue and one hazel green, filled with mirth. ”Now, let me see how much interesting this world can be. ”
