1 Chapter 1 A welcome surprise

Date: 7/21/2001 6:17 AM

I opened my eyes, trying my hardest to not scream, scared of the outcome of my shouting when my mind caught up to the state my body was in.

Even though I looked normal, under my clothes, several nasty bruises, some fresh, and others gaining a yellow tint, could be seen, all placed in parts that couldn't be seen unless specifically searched for, my uncle, aunt, and cousin are stupid but intelligent enough to not straight up hit me in the face.

Without wasting much time I get up from what should be my bed but was quite simply a futon, and not a very good one.

I had gotten used to it, or more like I had become numb to this life, humans adapt and evolve, and I did just that, I adapted and understood that if I wanted to escape from this hellhole the faster and safest way is to resist.

I headed towards the kitchen, trying to make the least sound possible, and headed towards the fridge, taking out raw sausages, eggs, milk, oranges, bread, and bacon.

First thing I cut the orange and juice with them, enough for six people, and then started cooking.

After more or less five years of cooking, I had gotten used to how they liked the food, and I was also pretty good at it, being fast enough to at least toast a piece of bread for my breakfast.

After finally finishing the whole cooking session I noticed two things.

First, I wasn't in as much pain as when I had started cooking.

Second, a blue screen, similar to the windows I had seen when I used the computer in the school library, appeared in front of me.

'What the hell is this?'

I tried to touch it but just as I was about to the sound of feet nearing me scared me and instead of touching it I swiped it away making it disappear.

" Seems like you have finished cooking, then why are you still here?" A voice said from the entrance of the kitchen.

And there he is, the man, the fatso, the main culprit for my hate towards humanity, my uncle.

" I am sorry, I have just finished cooking and I was about to wash my hands." Which was the truth, but I had gotten interrupted by the strange hallucination.

" You can't wash what is always dirty." My cousin, Dudly said from behind my uncle, trying to be funny in his stupid way.

" You are right sweaty." My aunt said after coming down the stairs and hearing Dudley's words.

In all the exchange I continued to remain silent and made sure to not meet the eyes of none of the three, knowing the outcome if I were to catch their gaze.

They continued insulting me for more or less a minute and then stopped, not finding it funny if I didn't answer.

" Go to your room." My uncle said and I immediately followed his orders.

But just as I was about to pass the trio, Dudley put a foot in front of my way making me trip and fall on the ground, making the trio laugh.

This time, the hallucination disappeared by itself, thus not blocking my vision and letting me get to my room.

After I got inside I rushed to my sleeping bag and hoped that I had not gotten crazy from the too many hits while thinking about the word status.

And the same screen appeared when I had finished cooking, but I understood nothing of it if only I had a tutorial or help function.



Quest: Understand the game

Goal: Listen to the whole tutorial

Reward: 10 XP, 10 Pounds

Accept? YES/NO


I moved my hand and clicked on the yes, and a new screen appeared right in front of my face, much smaller than my status one.

Following the same logic I first clicked on the information tag.

All pretty obvious apart from one small detail... what were those question marks? Do I have some kind of strange genetic disease? Am I not human? I need answers, answers that I can't have right now, so I simply decided to continue to understand what was happening by clicking the stats information tag.

' I can be happy with most of my traits, the ones that worry me though are the ones with question marks, one of the being surely related to my genes problem and my stats difference, and the malnutrition one, am I really in that bad of a state? I thought while looking at my pale skeletal hands.

I sighed and clicked on the last tag.
