Suddenly I opened my eyes. Surrounded in total darkness. I hear nothing. Where am I? What happened? Why am I here?
I began to look around. Slowly finding the possibility to move. First with the turning of my head, then onward with the shoulders, arms, hands and fingers, my back and finally the whole torso. Further my hips, thighs, calves and in the end my feet and toes. Now that my eyes are a costumed to the darkness; I see soft light from above.
Without hesitation I began to swim to the light. Noticing then there's the surface; I was all this time under water? As I reached the surface, I realized the light came from the city that stood tall before its shores and me but everything looked differently. These shores held no sand or pebbles but firm black metal with green-bluish light that could represent as veins. All the buildings of the city had that same colour and same architecture style as the shores. It gave an eerie effect and appeared very unnatural and well, robotic in my eyes. Knowing I am in clear conscience, yet all this felt from its appearance like out of some dream. Slowly and carefully I walked towards it.
After some while I was walking down what seemed to me to be a street but it was all deserted. I met no one. Yet that green-bluish light was the only thing that provided light. Strangely the only thing that seems natural here is the water and the air because I felt a soft cool breeze blowing through the streets and alleys. Besides the wind and the sound of my steps there was nothing else to be heard.
I did not come far as I heard a "Pssst." from some corner. I halted and searched for a face, a person, anyone who made that sound. "Pssst. Over here!" It called from behind me.
I turned round to see. There stood before me a young man with a young boyish face. He was dressed in some sort of a diving suit all in black with black leather half boots. His hair was brown, straight and short cut and his eyes were also brown, dark brown.
Before I could do or say anything everything went black before my eyes. I saw nothing but heard everything and was able to move only a bit. Realizing now something covered my eyes and bound me together. Quickly with all my strength I was able to break my bonds and removed the blanket that covered my eyes. While freeing myself I heard many voices around me. Mostly men but also a few women and children.
"Quickly strap him up! Don't let it remove the blanket! Hurry we need more ropes to tie it up again! Careful! He might be dangerous! What is that thing? It looks like a man to me. Well to me something dangerous that's for sure!"
Once the blanket was removed I could not believe my eyes. There were more people dressed in black diving suits, men, women and children.
"Everyone quick run! Hide!" Shouted a man with short cut wavy black hair. Immediately every one of them began to run away from me like mice from a predator.
"Zzz-tz-buzz. Tz-no-zzrrrr-nnnrrrzzz-harm." I gave out.
Placing quickly a hand to my throat. It must have been the water that damaged my voice! Strangely the rest of me is not damaged or malfunctioned. I must communicate with them but how when my voice is damaged! The man who gave the order to run was still close to me. Holding something in his hands and pointing it at me. Believing it would shield him from me. Gently as I could I held him by the shoulders although all those people and he were two heads smaller than me. So I bent down to have a better eye contact with him. He widened his eyes of fear and breathed through his mouth. Slowly I placed a hand over the object that was aiming me. Knowing he can harm me with it in some way. Pushing it slowly and gently down to the ground.
"rrttzz-nozz-rrzz-harm" I tried to speak with all my strength. Looking into his ocher brown eyes.
From his look I saw he is trying to understand me. I hope he does not speak a totally different language than mine. Will he understand English?
"tzzz-rrrrtzzzzzz-rrrrrrmmmm" That's it! My voice is now of absolute no use!
"Papa!" Cried a young boy in the distance running towards the man and me. His small pale hands out stretched in the air, eager to reach his father.
"No! Don't come any closer! It could be dangerous!"
"Papa!" Cried the boy again in tears and continued to run. Suddenly he tripped and fell. The man who is also a father wanted to run but stayed and looked up to me with grief. Slowly I walked to the boy and gently helped him up.
The boy gave a short giggle. "You're very warm." Spoke the boy merrily while holding my hand that I used to help him up. I smiled to his notation.
Suddenly from behind me I heard a loud roar. Quickly as a reaction I winced together and crouched over the boy in a protective position. The next a stinging pain was spreading within moments in my whole body and total darkness went before my eyes.
This music gave me the inpiration to write this (about a year ago). It is no fanfiction although the music is from a movie and TV serie. The combination of classic and electro gives a futuristic vibe. Discovering the unkown or awakening into a different world. The electrical buzz at the beginning gave me the impression as if something mechanic like a robot would wake up; wake up in a different world but it is no ordinary robot.
I started writing off a bit and named the story "Which Sides?" but I still need time to plan the details. Secondly school holds me off to continue. If you are interested in reading the first few chapters, check it out on inkitt.com.605Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVE8dEGdZyI
