A Game of You

By KH2083

Scifi / Action

Chapter 1

Prologue

The silver Moon and starlight all around it were mirrored in calm dark waters of the ocean like in a huge mirror. Two young, slim girls walked about the beach, one of them had long, green hair and the second had short hair like boy’s. They listened intently to the noise of the sea and the wind rushing above ridges of waves. The blonde very slowly approached her companion, embracing her with arms.

“How long are you going to talk to your ocean, Michiru?” She asked.

“Are you bored, Haruka?” The girl with eyes as blue as depths of seas asked.

“No, I could look at you for hours. But I worry about you. Don’t you remember that you have the concert in two hours?” Haruka continued.

“I would prefer to forget.”

“You’re perfect, you should not be anxious. Everything must came out well, if it’s you who holds the violin.”

“But the stage fright is bothering everyone. Even masters who are much better then me”. Michiru replied smiling.

“It’s not everything. The sea is trying to make something over to me...”

“What do you mean?” Haruka asked pointing the head in the direction of the edge, kind of trying to hear the voice about which the friend told her.

“It’s telling me that some changes are gearing up. Unexpected bend on the road of life...”

“Good or bad?”

“I don’t know.”

“Therefore don’t worry about it. Think that these changes will bring something wonderful. And come with me, or else you won’t manage to prepare.” The blonde touched the hand of her girl and they walked toward the car.

In one of the highest skyscrapers in the center of Tokyo, named Cygnus Tower after the corporation whose registered office was located in the building, the owner of the building was working in his study in spite of the late night. Windows in his office were huge, providing the man with the view on the panorama of the entire Tokyo and the interior was decorated with wooden furniture, some of them were hundreds of years old and other were designed by the modern world-famous designers. The man sitting in a leather armchair was about 34 - 40 years old, he had black hair and was wearing black suit. The door of the office opened and the woman with big bosom and a long blonde hair appeared in it.

“I’m sorry Mr. Tokiyama, but some man wanted to meet with you.” She enquired.

“What? There is a middle of the night! I don’t expect anybody, as a matter of fact I’m leaving right away!” The black-haired man shouted.

“But he said that he wouldn’t move from here. He told me to recall that you met with him on the old continent. He claimed that you would know what it is about.” Hearing the last sentence, Tokiyama went pale. He slumped into an armchair looking at the city behind the pane.

“Ok. Please let him in. And you can go home.” He announced. After a moment the slim, older man with grey hair dressed in an elegant, white suit appeared in the office. In the hand he held the wooden walking stick. He came up to Tokiyama’s desk, putting hand with the dark blue signet ring on its top.

“I am pleased that you are in a good health.” He said smiling.

“What do you want?!” frightened Tokiyama asked.

“You should to know it! Don’t you remember about our promise?”

“Have this time already come?”

“If I decide it, it will happen. Everything depends on me...”

“What am I supposed to do for you?” The grey man looked all around, looking for something. He noticed tickets lying on the desk of the man.

“What’s this?” He asked.

“Tickets for the concert. To the Philharmonic Orchestra.” Tokiyama answered in a trembling voice.

“It turns out that I will be searching inspiration in the music.” The man dressed in white announced. Black-haired closed his eyes. He wanted to avoid eyes of his guest as long as it was possible. When he made up his mind to look at the world again, it turned out that the grey man had already vacated his office quietly like the wind blowing above hills.

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....

Deleted User: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

jigglypuff314: Feeling sad that you can't watch your harem hentai in class? This is the book for you! No one will suspect a thing (other than your boner) as you scroll through pages of some of the best porn you'll ever be able to imagine!Spectacular details and a wonderful tug of emotions, you won't know whethe...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

TheProfezzer: This is an excellent story. The plot covers several decades and at least two generations of good guys fighting the enemy from beyond. I found it hard to put down and read the second book after the first but you should red "the Origin of FORCE" first to keep the story in line. I just could not ...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Ding Fernando: very nice read.so realistic you can hardly put it down,i really like the character so human despite posessing immortality and eternal youth.though i would prefer a better ending..i still love this novel and i am recommending it to all sci fi fans to give it a try .you will love it too!!
