Chapter 1 Amnesia
I awoke in a forest with a book, some weird tattoo and a hammering headache. I wandered till I found a traveler.
"Hey over here!", I shouted startling the man.
"What do you want? You don't look so good, you've seem lost a lot of blood. Follow me, I know someone who can treat your wounds." The guy seemed pretty generous and kind.
"Say, what's your name traveler? From the sign of those markings on your arm, I'd say your along way from home."
"My name's Mat.... and that's pretty much all I remember. That and this book I woke up clasping to." I showed the man the book and he snatched right out my hand, looking at it like it was treasure or something.
"Great sage! This book, can you remember where you found it?"
"I'll try... ugh nothing I can't, it hurts when try to think about it."
"Hmm, I see well My names Hazer and it appears that you are something really special. I'll explain when we reach the city but in the mean time, try and think back. You're an amnesiac, so I'll what my pal Ben can do."
"Hey, Haler what do you do? Are you a traveler of some sort?"
"In a way yes but no, see I'm hero that travels passing by cities, countries and well worlds."
"Wait... I'm starting to remember something... argh I could just almost make it out. I remember me and a girl... Tyler... she.... she told to take this book and run... she said The Shrouded would get me if I didn't go." Hazer's facial expression didn't look so hot, as if he changed his mind about picking me up. "Did you just say The Shrouded, cause if you did we in more hell than I thought we were."
"What's the big deal about them?"
"What's the big deal, the deal is that you and this Tyler must have been part of the Resurrect program. The Resurrect program was assigned specific people with special "Gifts". You must have been someone important because of that mark on your right arm. If I'm right you might have been one of the leader's."
"Resurrect program? Tyler....... wait, did you hear that?"
"Hear what, hey where are you going?!"
"I hear them, shrouded troops headed this way, Hazer do you have a weapon, any kind of weapon?"
"Yeah, I have a dagger and a bow in this bag, just wait a moment." Hazer set aside the weapons while Mat grabbed and armed himself for battle.
Mat ducked into the bushes and unsheathed the dagger. He snuck up and one of them and plunged the knife through his throat and handicapped the other.
"Mat what are you doing? Now we're really in some deep stuff now."
"I'm interrogating him, he might know something about Me and Tyler. Now, your from the shrouded right?"
"Yeah, who the hell are you?"
"Some one you should cooperate with now, do you know a girl named Tyler by any chance?"
"Tyler... TYLER! That girl! she stabbed me in the eye and tried to blow up our h.q. She's the leader of the Resurrect program along with some guy and another girl."
"Keep talking or I'll slit your throat, I can't remember anything and I have a splitting headache, so talk!"
"Okay man, keep calm, She said she meet up with some guy... Mat at Pandora's Bar in Maple Drift, I swear man that's all I know!"
"Okay, but just in case, your other leg is going to have to get broken, you see we can't let you go and snitch so I'm just slowing down the process." Mat drove the knife in the troops other leg and ran with Hazer in search of Pen and more answers and also of the mysterious book that just might contain something of mat's past.
