Chapter 1:

Act 1: Awakening


The first thing I saw when I open my eyes were trees—tall and intimidating ones that covered my vision.

My back hurts, and my head feels like thousands of needles are stabbing it repeatedly. I held back a groan as I stand up, looking left and right to the aligned trees near me.

I can't remember how I got here. I don't know what happened before I got here. I...

I can't remember!

No...I know my name, somehow. It's Hiro.

But I still can't remember anything aside from that. I don't even know where I'm from.

Closing my eyes, I inhaled slowly, and allowed all the air I've collected. Then, I slowly opened my eyes and stare at the trees—at the forest I'm in.

Where am I? What is this place? How did I get here?

And why can't I remember anything?
