Chapter 1: Hunted

I am living a nightmare I didn’t even dream about. For what? Because I exist? Because I deserve it? Or because I was in the wrong place at the wrong time? It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t change anything.

I was on my knees. I looked down at my best friend. He had blood streaming down the corner of his mouth.

I touched his pale cold skin and closed his faint eyes. I laid him down one last time. He wore a blue jacket with a blood stain in his right side where I stabbed him.

“Goodbye… Ryoku…” I said before standing up. The rain started to pour down and touched my body lightly. Each drop making me more drenched than before.

I heard splashing footsteps and the thunder rumbled. I kept on hearing the sirens from the damage I caused.

I looked at the person that was across the alley. It was Mika. She was drenched too.

She stared and lightning quickly appeared which blinded us for a moment. I released my monster form. Letting the black shiny armor surround my entire body.

I glared as my vision became a distorted blue before turning into a clear vision. I was the monster in a split second. I quickly jumped in the air and landed on the roof. I turned left and started to jump through destroyed buildings, leaving alone what was left of my life.

I could control this monster now, but I felt incomplete. It was like I had more in me. This monster could evolve, so I could evolve.

I kept on jumping while seeing cops pass by below me. They were trying to find as many corpses as they could.

After jumping continuously I was away from the city. I was by an ocean shore. He ran through the sand and went down to a sewer tunnel.

I panted while hearing the constant rumbling of thunder behind me. I took off my monster form as my armor turned to nothing.

I was left shirtless and only wearing the black shorts I had on before the unexpected raid. I fell on my knees and whimpered. I started to crawl further away from the exit of the sewer.

I finally got far enough where I felt safe. I sat down and took a deep breath. I leaned back and gulped.

I looked at the sewer’s exit and starred for a second. My vision began to fade and my body was starting to calm.

I heard a splash and looked up. I looked left quickly and saw a small frog jumping in the water stream. I looked and saw a bright light at the exit of the sewer system. I started to crawl out. I looked out and saw an empty shore. It was cloudy, but the sun pierced between them.

A loud horn went off. I flinched back and looked to the side. I saw a couple of boats arriving on shore. They were cargo from foreign trade.

I sat down and rubbed my head. I heard another sound. I looked up and saw multiple helicopters go into the city. I stood up and turned around seeing an army of helicopters flying on the roofs of large buildings.

It didn’t take long to figure out that they were trying to find me. I went back into the sewer system. I knew I had to hide, but I also figured I was a dangerous creature. Those were the words Tomoya told him before killing my parents.

I then saw small lights and it was the actual sewer system. The light was coming from the lamps from the wall.

I walked while hearing rats nearby squeal. I had to find a way to get out of Japan. And I need to do it soon.

Jevron Macalino: You started the story after Chuck Vs. the Fake Name happened and I like your version more than I like the original one.

I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most. If that all sounds a bit vague, it's because I really don't want to s...

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging. The opening two or three chapters seem quite character-dense but they all soon come to life and there is no padding, filling or wasted time readin...

aeratheninja: Interestingly enough, this story touches on different psychological states and was very informing, on top of being a solid story. Although somewhat predictable, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this; I could feel the fear and the frustration of the characters, and was happy when they were happy.Even ...

Kastril Nomenclature: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Melderise: This is just an amazing novel that teaches you how to break the bonds of reality. It shows how the most fascinating story can start from the most regular environment and then leading the reader to the dream destinations...

Jessie: I wrote a review on fanfiction but I thought it would be fitting to write on on here too :) This story was honestly stunning. I am a budding writer myself and to read this- to FEEL this- reminded me of why I am honoured to have this passion and drive for a craft that is just so raw and beautiful.
