Chapter 1

I want to know


I don’t know how many times I have been in this world. Sometimes I’m in a city, last week I was in beach and maybe next week this place can be a forest, everything around me is changing, the only thing that doesn’t change it’s me.

My hair is always black and long my skin white and pale, and my eyes brown as always. It doesn’t matter how much I eat or how many days I can spent without eat anything my weigh is always the same. I never change in a word full of changes.

“But why is that?”

“Where am I?”

“How I ended up here?”

There is another thing that I don’t know:

“Who Am I?”

I don’t know my name, where I was born, and neither when. I don’t know if everything around me is real even me, but the only thing that I know is that I want to find out the answers.

Everything is a forest right now. Trees with delicious fruits are everything around me.

I took one apple, its taste it’s like nothing, no taste.

I took a grape, the same happened.

It’s always the same.

I went to sleep.

I woke up, it’s hot. Since it can becomes night or day from one minute to another I can’t be sure how long I was sleeping but right now the sun is in the middle of the sky maybe it’s noon.

Sand is everywhere; well it’s the only thing that I can see.

Despite the fact that is really hot I’m not thirsty.

I turn around, seems that some cactus are having a picnic. Three of them are smaller than the rest and they are playing with a coconut. They are their kids maybe. They are having fun.

A little thing came running to me, a dog? He wants to play. I pet him but I ended with my hand full of thorns. I’m bleeding but I don’t feel pain.

He lost the interest and came back with his owners. I turned my eyes to the other side.

“Do you want...?”

My heart stops and I freeze, I heard a voice, one that’s not mine.

“Do you want to know?”

There’s something that I can call a rule in this world. It’s doesn’t matter what appears in front of me even if it is a living thing, I’m the only one that can talk but now that rule has been broken.

I looked everywhere but I couldn’t find anyone, even the cactus were gone, wait a minute, even the sand it’s gone, the sun it’s now gone.

Pitch black it’s the only thing around me right now.

A light appears. It was too shiny that I had to cover my eyes.

A voice came from the light.

“Do you want to know?”

Even if I didn’t know what was happening I knew my answer.

“I want, I want to know what is to feel”

I woke up.

A forest.

Every part of my body hurt. A strong pain went through my bones.

I was starving.

My hand was bleeding and the pain was indescribable.

I smiled.

I can feel again.

“How can you smile? It doesn’t hurt you?”

I heard the voice again.

Despite the pain I feel alive.

“You can know everything but the answers can be too much for you”

I don’t care, I want to know.

“I want to know where I’m”

I woke up.

A bed.

A headache hit me. My hands were really thin and I was thirsty.

The room where I was seemed to be abandoned.

I looked through the window. I was in an abandoned city.

The days passed and I feel like dying and now the days use to last 24 hours.

After days I heard the voice one more time.

“What do you want to know?”

I hesitated a little, but I gave my answer.

“I want to know, who I am”

I remembered everything my family, my friends, this world that was full of people and also my name.

Clare.

But where is everyone?

“Do you want to know?”

I knew, that this question was different, I could feel and understand what this voice meant about the answers being too much for me, but I wanted to know.

“Where is everyone? And why am I alive?”

Pitch black surround me again but this time was different this time was really cold.

“Despite everything you wanted to know”
