Chapter 01: The Lonesome Boy

A lone male walked through the remains of an empty city.The city was large and vast, it used to be known for it's thriving life just like all the other cities on the planet.However ever since that day...most of humanity has vanished, this man doesn't know if there are others who are still here...He occasionally hears echos of the past where a bright civilization used to be at it's peak. Where children would play,and adults would work and make ends meet. Where a couple would be arguing about the most pointless things,now there's nothing but silence....this dark silence that haunts his life.He would occasionally see dark silhouettes of people far off in the distance but would come to realize that it was just his mind playing tricks on him.Knowing that he was utterly and entirely alone filled him to the brim with sorrow,he didn't know why he kept on moving why he continued to live,he just did simply following his instincts now. This city was empty a dense white fog has covered most of it.There are some glowing particles floating through the air like dust,it's not known what they are but they seem to be harmless,maybe a left over of what happened on the day when most of all living things disappeared? He wouldn't know....

This man has ice blue colored eyes that almost seem to radiate the sheer amount of will power he has.His silver gray hair was long and wild,a lot of people said it was in the style of your typical anime main character's bed head,it's coloring the result of a genetic mutation caused at birth,he was at the age of 17.He wore a black turtle neck military sweater,over it he wore a light all climate coat,it's coloring was white with black accents.He wore a pair of matching pants that went rather well with the coat,similar color scheme and effects.He had on a pair of black boots and gloves.He had a backpack slung over his shoulder that he used to carry supplies. He also had a Vector sub machine gun holstered on his opposite shoulder,the fire arm was positioned on the back side of his waist.Not that he's ever used it before.His right hand wrist was equipped with an odd bracelet,when activated it would display a holographic computer system that could be used for several occasions.He primary uses it for it's map , locating, and his most favorite discovery the internet function.When ever he stops and rest's he uses the internet function to learn of what the world used to be;He occasionally plays music off of it,so he could forget the dreading silence that was all around him,most of the time it just reminded him of it.Of course there are other functions in it but he hardly ever uses them.

The buildings were still in tact as was everything that the civilization made before him.In fact the buildings and nature seemed to coexist now in perfect harmony where plants would be growing off of them, it would still allow perfect use of the facility. He remembered that in the past wars would brake out so very often, he was afraid that war machines and such would still be active,still hunting for targets that there long missing leaders have ordered them to execute.Luckily for him he hasn't run into any as of yet.He decided to take a rest in front of a plaza, there were several things nearby,shops still filled with many things and such.As well as the subway entrance directly to his left.He activated the terminal on his wrist and decided what else he could search up, he remembered something about programs that acted a lot like real life people.These programs were referred to as A.I. they were digital clones of a person's mind and were used for many countless reasons.He decided to run a search on them, wondering if he could still find an active A.I. system.He discovered that there were several that were still active the closest one being in an apartment complex several miles away. He couldn't fathom why such a program would be inside a personal apartment room,but he'd rather not waste time and head towards there any way.
