Children of GrimAct I, The land of twisted tales
Somewhere, there is an island, surround by seemingly endless ocean. With five night sky black blimps hovering above amoungst the clouds. The structures on the island appeared to be leveled as if a fierce storm with strong gales and violent lightning swept across it. Not a sound was uttered by man or beast as it remained erieely silent .
Amongst debris in a leveled building, sat a television. The television, was old fashion as it had nobs and a huge crack on the upper left corner. A song
started to play, a classy tune and the television suddenly came alive. It depicted of a young man with black hair and golden colored irises. His teeth, pearl white as he smiled to the audience. He was dressed in a red velvet shade of suit, with black gloves and leather shoes. Embroidered on the right breast was a yellow crescent Moon with a black capital V overshadowing it.
The room, he entered was completely white from the ceiling to the fuzzy rug on the floor. The furniture was metallic and black, in a Gothic style. He sat in one of the chairs that had a table in front of it. " Do you feel depressed lately? Constant anxieties? mental fatigue? And other ailments?"
This energetic young asked to the audience. " My name is *static* , and like you, I had similar issues. I felt, I was a lost cause, no amount of therapy or medications could help, until I went to Everafter Island. "
The young man addressed as he wanted the audience to know that he too was a regular joe that had troubles. The screen signal scrambled for a moment, the young man had a different appearance. His head at one glance was an endless tunnel with what look liked fangs, thousands of them, spinning around.
It returned to normal, the young man, was the young man again with his handsome features. " Everafter Island, has been declared to possess some of the finest psychologists and medical science, this world has to offer."
The young man on the screen declared. The television now, depicted various scenery around the island. An older gentlemen and lady playing tennis, which then it switched to them having their heads on a pike on the tennis court. A young man laying on a crouch talking to a doctor, then became the same doctor removing the young man's brain on a metal table. A couple in love in an open field suddenly transformed two people hung on crucifixes, surrounded by scattered body parts on a bloody street. " Thanks to our Grimmoire Institution..."
The young man went to say. The television screen displayed an Ivory complex, that was four stories high and had several gardens around it. The screen scrambled again, and that ivory complex, had huge thorns ripped into it, piercing its walls. The once beautiful gardens, were now black earth as the grounds were scorched. " And Aesop Hospital."
The hospital was red and black checkered with roads and sidewalks that matched. Much like the other it was four stories high, but when the scrambled, the hospital was a pile of rubble and the roads and sidewalks were barely recognize with the damages and the debris.
It switched back to young man, who suddenly reached out towards the audience and said " There is hope, and that hope is at Everafter Island, come join us, won't you?"
A robotic foot suddenly stomped down, crushing the television. " I have to keep running, I have to escape !"
A man shouted as he ran down the ruined streets. His clothing of a jacket, t-shirt, and jeans were tore and burnt as if he had survived an explosion. He had bandages wrapped around his entire head, and covered his left eye. The giant robot turned its head, in its eyes it targeted the man that was fleeing. Its chest popped open with robotic tentacles that had eyes. They lunged forth like hungry beasts right after the running man.
It was chance, that the man glance back towards his hunter. However, the only thing he could manage was a scream "NOOOO!"
The tentacles were catching up to him. Yet as a reaction to his scream, his left hand began to glow with a ghastly green. Out of reflex, he turned to the tentacles and sprayed a burst of gaseous substance at the tentacles causing them to rust immediately. Yet the rust wasn't finished as it started to spread towards the Robot, rusting it so it will shatter like glass.
The bandaged man stared at his trembling hand. " What the fuck, did they do to me?!"
He pancied but before he could say anything else, he was silenced. A metallic hand was sticking out of his chest. "They made you better."
Answered the man who stabbed the patient through the back. He pulled out his hand, from the man's body. The metallic hand became flesh and his identity was the young man with the red suit and the crescent moon on his chest.
The young man then, looked up towards the skies. Where he spotted several blimps in the air. He shook his head and reached into his jacket. " What a naughty doctor, trying to escape with research materials, are we?"
The young man commented while he was reaching into his jacket. He pulled out, what looked like a denator. " Can't have that, that will ruin our plans."
The young said as he pulled the trigger of the denator.
Like fireworks in the sky, the blimps exploded, and then fell from the heavens. In hellish fire, they all crashed down, some into the earth, and some to a watery grave. The young man chuckled and said " You and everyone here needs a reminder, there is no escape, not for anyone."
You find yourself in a pod with the door jarred open. As you managed to get out of the pod, you look around to find yourself in a crash site, near a cliff, surrounded by other pods just like yours. All you can hear is crackling flames and the crashing waves below the cliff. What do you do now ?
