Damnit damnit damnit...

I rush out the door through the pouring rain and into the woods.

Why’d they have to say that to me?

I keep running through the forest as branches snag at my clothes.

Why don’t they ever take my side?

I step in puddles, getting mud all over my legs. I really just don’t care about that at this point though.

I don’t ever want to see them again.

I can’t continue at this pace much longer. My lungs are already burning. I’ve never been a sprinter. I begin to slow down into a stop before crouching down behind a tree to escape from the rain.

Dang it... maybe I really am worthless.

I bury my face in my soaked hands. It’s not much solace, but I can at least pretend the wet feeling on my face isn’t from tears.

Fwooooom

Huh? What was that?

I perk my head up, looking for what caused the noise.

Fwoooooom

There it was again. I think it came from over there.

Slowly I get up and begin walking in the direction of the sound.

Occasionally the sound rings out again, and I adjust my path a bit.

After a long walk I find myself at a clearing with a little creek running through it, and most importantly, what seems to be the source of the sound.

What the heck is that thing!?

Hovering in the middle of the meadow, in spite of all clear logic, was a bright blue flame.

Now how is a flame like that hovering? More importantly how is it still burning in the middle of this downpour!?

I don’t think I should touch that thing...

But then again, I do wonder what it feels like.

What was that?!

I bet it feels nice

I didn’t think that. That wasn’t me.

I begin walking out to the middle of the clearing

Suddenly, my body begins to move on its own out to the middle of the clearing.

Wait no! Stop! Legs, why aren’t you listening to me!? I’m sorry for not using you as much as I should have! Can we just make up and go back right now? I promise I’ll take you on a nice walk later!

Eventually I come to a stop in front of the blue flame. I can only hear the crackling of the fire.

I don’t suppose this is the end is it?

I reach out and touch the fire

*sigh*

I watch helplessly as my hand reaches out and touches the flame wh-

...

...Darkness

Am I dead? I mean shoot, all I remember is that flame leaping onto my body and a bright light a moment later.

I really don’t want to open my eyes.

I can feel something under my stomach right now though.

I dunno, maybe I was just horribly burned. Uggh, that’s not much better. Let’s try moving something.

I feel a swish as maybe an arm or a leg moves through the air.

It’s really bad right now that I can’t tell.

Ugggh... I guess I’m gonna have to open my eyes and face reality.

Ok

So then, I see there’s a bunch of grass and wildflowers, but uh... I can’t really move my neck.

Don’t tell me the burns are that severe! I can’t say I was ever very pretty, but I don’t want to be scarred for life from this!

Ugggh... at least I’m not in pain right now.

Ok, I think it’s time we try and move. I don’t think waiting here will accomplish much.

Ok. Now, on the count of three again.

1 2 3!

*yip*

Instead of getting up to my feet, I bounce forward a few feet coming to a stop next to the calm stream.

Wait a second. What’s going on?

That’s when I saw it, my reflection in the stream.

Staring back at me is a small round fox-like thing!

Eeeeeek

Welcome to the game, would you like a tutorial?
