Alone in My Darkness - 1
Volume 1: Birth
Somewhere in the north of France.
” This party is really great ouhhh we’re gonna get high tonight. ” (unknown )
” Dude you’re already wasted slow down there. ” (unknown)
” Shut up Mike and enjoy yourself, you haven’t touched a drop of alcohol. You’re the only one who hasn’t been drinking. ” (Unknown)
” I remind you that I have to take you home, I don’t want us all to end up in a wall. I have a feeling you don’t remember what happened last time, Jimmy. ” (Mike)
” Killjoy! Come on, let’s go fuck some chicks, at least you’ll have some fun. ” (Jimmy)
Suddenly a red glow appeared in the sky.
” Wow, it’s so beautiful! ” (Crowd)
“Instinctively, everyone looked up at the sky under this festive night. Blue lightning started to show up in a loud roar. This startled the people present.
The sky was now filled with this phenomenon that was unlike any known phenomenon in the history of mankind. Everyone was watching all this with curiosity, but also with a small ball in the stomach.
Then a flash of lightning fell with a heavy crash, leaving a kind of circular door of blue color.
There was now this door that stood in front of this group of young students. It moved in a swirling pattern and gave off a brilliant glow. The less drunk and the more reasonable called the police to warn of the phenomenon. But who would believe it if they were told such a thing.
” Let’s go and see what it is. ” (Jimmy)
” You are crazy! Stay here, you’ve had too much to drink, it might be dangerous! ” (Mike)
” Oh, leave me alone! Hey guys let’s go see this thing. ” (Jimmy)
I watched them walk towards that door. I had this feeling in my stomach, but the people around me must have felt the same way. My friend finally put his hand through under our worried looks.
” Hey! Guys my hand is going through! It’s a lot of fun. You should try… AHHHH! AHHHH! SOMETHING GRABBED MY ARM! ” (Jimmy)
” HOLD IT, HOLD IT! “, (Friends)
I saw my friend disappear into that door despite the efforts of the others to keep him from being swept away. WWe were all unable to look away. The seconds at that moment seemed to last for hours.
Then an arm came out, to finally see my friend coming out covered in blood with one arm missing.
” Ah ah… Ru… Ru… RUN FAST! ” (Jimmy)
Her head was suddenly ripped off and flew into a bloodshed. She fell at my feet, and I couldn’t help but look at her. You could still see the fear in the expression on her face.
Fear instinctively seized me, preventing me from moving, and I looked up to see creatures coming out of that door. And they shouted as if to sign the opening of the hunt.
” Is this hell? ” (Mike)
” We received a call from young people testifying that a blue door would be opened. ” (Police officer)
” It’s probably a party with a lot of alcohol and drugs. ” (Police officer)
” Today’s youth are truly a calamity. ” (Police officer)
” You’re telling me! Come on, let’s do a bit of an arrest. ” (Policeman)
They then headed towards the place. When they arrived the sky was starless and the moon was hidden by clouds.
” There is no noise, it’s pretty weird for a party, isn’t it? ” (Police officer)
They walked for a little while and finally.
” OH MY GOD! ” (Policeman)
I then saw my colleague’s face turn pale and point to a tree. I then turned my lamp in the direction indicated, to see the body of a young woman dismembered in the branches of a tree. The guts hanging in the air. One of them vomited at the sight of this body was unbearable, accompanied by a stench of blood and shit. We finally moved the light a little further, we saw mountains of corpses, bathed in a pool of blood.
They then heard a noise, they then all turned around with fear to see a young man this directed towards them the eyes and the face of a bright red.
” DON’T MOVE! ” (Police officer)
” Run to the car! ” Now! (Teenager)
Behind him appeared creatures revealing blood-covered fangs with pieces of human flesh.
The young man was already far ahead of them.
” How he? ” (Policeman)
Shots rang out, two of the policemen were firing their weapons. But it seemed ineffective. They were overwhelmed by the creatures. Their cries of pain then resounded as they were devoured alive.
The young man and a policeman reached the car. The young man was in the front seat with him. Somethings crashed on the windshield. The body of his last colleague flattened on it.
” Save… Save me… “(Police officer)
His face covered with blood begged to be saved, but his colleague started the car to run away. His body slowly slid under the wheels. The sound of his body being crushed under the wheels sent shivers down his spine. But it didn’t matter to him, he had made it. He told himself that it was already too late for him.
He went back to the station with this young man and warned everyone. Seeing the blood on the car and on this teenager, they had no choice but to believe them.
During that night, many policemen, gendarmes and soldiers died to kill these beasts. And one of these creatures turned out to be much more powerful than the others.
But this was not the only portal that appeared that day, for it was all over the world! This has led to several massacres.
How did this young man survive that night when all his friends had been devoured?
He said he had managed to kill the creature that had attacked him. By ripping off its jaw and then running for his life while my comrades were being torn apart. He had felt something awaken in him.
The years that followed this disastrous event changed the world as we know it.
The portals or rifts continued to manifest, but some other things emerged. The awakened ones who were able to fight against these monsters, they represented hope. Then they became celebrities adulated by the world upsetting the hierarchy of our societies.
This first event was called the breaking point!
