Diary of Void: The Millennium War


"I greet you Void." the man said.

A thousand things filled my mind. 
I had never given out my name to anyone. How did he know my name? But put that thought aside for later I will need to know if he is a noble or politician.Bookmark here

"Huh. Are you a high ranking noble or politician?" I asked him. Bookmark here

His face was the same as ever, only wiping off that grin on his face.

"High ranking noble or politician?" He said. "Oh dear, oh dear. My authority does not bound me only to the Sagen Republic but to the whole world. I guess in simpler terms you can call me 'God' of this world." Bookmark here

God? 
I scrambled my brain to figure out what the man could possibly mean. Bookmark here

The man self-proclaiming as 'God' seemed to notice my confusion and continued. Bookmark here

"Do I really have to spell it out for you? You, this android, this run-down storage facility, Touimai and everything to ever exist in the world, let it be from the start of dawn to current events, I and my personal hand-picked team created them." Bookmark here

"What...?" I replied. 

"You heard me." 'God' replied. Bookmark here

If he does really claim to be the 'God' of this world, then he should know about my curse that killed all of its bearers... Should I ask him about it?Bookmark here

"Ah? The curse right? Well, sorry fella, I made that curse, especially for you but somehow it affected your whole bloodline even before you were born." 'God' answered. Bookmark here

He answered my question?! Does... this mean he could read thoughts? But that's impossible even with the latest mind-reading technology!

"Yeah sorry, you weren't answering so I had to peek into your thoughts. And yes, I can read thoughts. Didn't I say I was the 'God' of this world? Mind-reading my own creations are an easy task."  Bookmark here

"Tsk. Fine. I recognize you as the creator of this world. And exchange, do please tell me more about this curse I bear." I said. Bookmark here

There isn't much of an option. The android is holding a laser-powered SMG at me and judging by the weight of the gun and the muzzle size along with this 3-metre gap between us... it would take around 3.7 - 3.8 nanoseconds for the light bullet to reach me.  Bookmark here

"Ah! So you DID locate the hidden SMG! Bravo Void, not many people can even see the SMG in this dark room, even if you have night-vision eyes." God replied. Bookmark here

"..." 
My eyes stared at the screen with a blank face.  Bookmark here

Panicking, God quickly got his thoughts together. Bookmark here

"Ahem! Anyway, I decided to put a curse on the main test subject we were following." He explained. "Now this 'curse' may seem bad due to it killing all of its bearers but that was really just me killing them myself. So please don't worry! Just think of this curse of a non-physical chip that allows me to modify yourself and things around along with communicating with you but I had to set it up, hence this meeting." Bookmark here

The explanation took over an hour to finish and covered many topics. To sum it all up, my curse was a thing that this man, Creator of this world, made and gave the curse to me, but due to something called a 'Single-Person Favor Law', the curse also appeared on my ancestors so God had to kill them himself. 
It had the power to modify the bearer and those around him/her, while also letting God and his team communicate with the bearer. Basically granting you powerful supernatural powers. 
This all sounds great, but there's a catch. After you use the powers of the curse once, the curse will act on its own and will bring all negative results at specific important times. The negative results also stack, when you use the power of the curse when your penalty hasn't appeared yet. The most powerful abilities include Time Stopping, Space Distortion and Teleportation, however, the catch for these abilities are also the most severe. Your fate will be reversed. Bookmark here

Like a promotion, if you used the curse's powers only once before, it may result in failure more, etc. etc. When you used a 'High-Tier' power, the enemy you fought should have ended up dead but the reversed fate meant the enemy will live on. Bookmark here

"Oh, one last thing. You can keep this android as your partner in the upcoming 'Defence of Touimai', and all future events so please bring her along with you. And I can't have you always calling me God or Creator since it kinda embarrasses me, so just call me Uto. Anyway, I'm out!" Uto said. 
The mini monitor showing Uto turned off and retreated into the android's chest, disappearing fully. Bookmark here

The next thing I knew, the android changed from her previous white clothes to the usual average clothes for the citizens of Touimai in a blink of an eye. Bookmark here

"Master, please give me a name." She said in a human-like voice. Bookmark here
