Chapter I: Cold Cries

It was cold...

Cold beyond belief...

I stood there in the freezing never-ending snow. It covered me as I hunted for just a small amount of food.

Then I heard a large crash.

I ran towards the area only to stumble upon... Another human? “Could it be,” I asked myself. He was covered by rocks and stone. I lifted them off them to find out he was not a human. He was an entirely different race. One I have only heard of as a child before the ruins...

I carried him home and waited a few days. I prepared his bed and made him some food. Later that day I went to my room and grabbed the letter my mother gave me thirteen years ago. I read it for what felt like the hundredth time.

I soon lay down on my bed to fall asleep. As I fell asleep, I was in my old house when I was only a child. My mother was covered in blood and the house was on fire. Though there was fire I felt cold. Trees were destroyed; the sky was forever black as the crimson moon sent terror to all. My mother then gave me a small box. with a letter inside. She told to run and never look back. Then I was surrounded by fire.

Then I woke up from the dream. “Ah!” I screamed as I got up from my bed. I went to check on the person I found. He then woke up and looked around.

“Ah! Where am I? What the hell!” He said in fear. “Calm down, it’s alright,” I said to calm him down. “But ma’am I was in the middle of a forest now I’m in a small house! Did you save me?” He spoke.

I then replied by saying, “Yes, yes, I did. I couldn’t help seeing you hurt like that. I was once in a situation, but no one helped me.” “Oh. So that’s why. Well next time don’t waste your time doing this for me, I don’t deserve this kind of treatment. You even made a meal for me, and I can’t help but feel bad that you used up your food and materials for someone you don’t even know,” He replied to me.

“Well, that’s what I do,” I said to him. Then all of a sudden, I heard a massive explosion. “What was that!” He said in surprise. “Hold on let me check it out,” I said. As I ran to the explosion, I saw blood? “Why is there blood, there’s no one alive?” I asked myself. As I investigated, I heard a growl. Then I was attacked! I hadn’t brought my crossbow, so I was alone. I ran to a tree and got a stick to defend myself. The creature jumped at me, but I stabbed it. I used its remains for food, so we don’t starve.

I went back home and brought the raw meat. I then mildly cooked it, so it was more flavorful. I prepared it however had to remove the head. I then grabbed the small dagger and sliced its head off. After we finished eating the meal we had looked around.

I couldn’t help but wonder what the explosion was. As we looked around however, we found a temple. “Is that the temple of the horsemen of light?!” I asked. He said that it was.

“By the way, what is you name sir?” I asked him nicely. “Oh, my name. It’s Shiro Ishida. What is yours?” He replied. Of course, I replied to him. I told him my name which is Sayori Nakagawa. He said that it was a good name however he quickly got back to the point.

We need to look around for any remains. If there is a weapon near the explosion, we will be in good luck. He wasn’t wrong. In fact, we did find a weapon. A weapon from thousands of years ago!

“What the hell is this?!” It has a handle and trigger like a crossbow, but it looks, so interesting. He tried to shoot it at a broken tree when it started to glow and then shot a beam of light.
