Twisted World - A story from the Apocalypse
Entry #1 - Pain and Memories
The cryo pod door slides open releasing the cryo fluid inside. It was rushing out, carrying my unconscious body with it.
The cold fluid spreads around the floor, it hisses, then disappears.
I regained consciousness a few minutes later after I thawed off and stood up. I was disoriented and groggy, and my vision was blurry so I blinked hard trying to clear it and at the same time trying to wake myself up.
My mind was completely blank, no thoughts flowing through my mind at these moments and the dizziness didn't help. I tried hard to remember who I was despite this but nothing would be revealed.
Then I felt something wrapped around my wrist, I tried to make out the strange markings on it and eventually made sense of it.
It was my name.
"William Shaw" I read in my mind
I felt a extreme headache shortly after as my head was filled with small but useful bits of information of my past.
I remembered what my name was, where I was...
This carried on for a while revealing a tiny bit more of myself and and my current situation. It wasn't much but it was something, and it was definitely better then my blank state of mind earlier.
I got up and decided to examine the room, I noticed dust streaks on the floor which lead to a dark and quite spacious room.
The door's frame is heavily dented and there is a dried pool of blood on the floor. Like some thing was smashed here, and bled to death later. Something big.
Aside from that, the door had a plaque on the top door frame that said "EXAMINATION ROOM 17"
I entered and quickly scanned the dark room and found a few cabinets, I searched through them and found they had a few hospital gowns in them. I took some and did my best to cover myself from the cold.
I returned to the main room and was greeted by a strong gust of wind which blew through the broken glass window. I was glad to have covered myself earlier.
Without wasting anymore time complaining how cold it is in the room, searched the console for records. I fished through the records and found information about the other inhabitants of the pods except for mine.
A little more searching mixed in with some desperation allowed me to find some security footage some time later.
I looked behind me and saw half of a small black orb sitting in the corner of the room behind me. I turned back to the footage and watched...
A muscular but naked man holds up a fighting pose as a werewolf-like being enters the room. He charges at it and locks it in a choke hold and when it slips unconscious he repeatedly bashes the beast's head on the door. He then leaves and comes back with a few glass shards, skins the beast, wears it's pelt as some kind of coat, then leaves.
It's brutal, violent, and hilarious all at the same time.
"Well at least I know what happened" I said to myself in my head, giving a slight smirk.
"Looks like the only way out is this broken window."
I uneasily slide through the glass trying not to cut myself and I am greeted with a large field of grass and yet again, a cold breeze.
"Hmm... Strange. It looks like this grass hasn't been cut in years. But maybe that's just to try and hide the facility from curious eyes."
I do a complete perimeter check of the facility before continuing on, the gravel is a bit uneasy on my feet, so I quickly head inside the facility and tie torn hospital gowns that I retrieved from the examination room to my feet as a form of padding and protection and headed outside.
After navigating the jungle of grass, I hiked up a small hill to scout out what's ahead of me. Hopefully find a town and get some answers.
And just my luck, I spotted a small town about a kilometer away, and while turning behind me a forest not to far away from the point i'm standing.
After about a minute of thought I went on to head to the town and find some help, and with that a warm meal and some answers.
But something doesn't sit right. I'll have to just check the town and hope everything's fine.
End of Entry #1
In this twisted world, I found myself slowly vanishing.
It's been a long time, but I'm back.
