James Chapter 1

“Save us sir hero! You’re our last hope”

That was the dream James had been having for the past week. Oddly enough, he never did dream, so having the same one appear again and again was a strange experience to him. He couldn’t remember what happened inside of the dream, save for that one line.

He shook his head to clear it and begin to start his day anew. He was tired of life at this point. He had been going through the motions day in and day out but what for? The world was going downhill faster than anyone was willing to fix it. He was tired of everything that happened around him, and of being rejected by jobs, lovers, and friends.

He was tired of it all and just wanted it all to end.

He decided that enough was enough weeks ago and already was enacting his plan.

He had dropped out of college the week before, and given all of his things to his one good friend before going dark for a week.

Today was the day he was going to see what was on the other side, whether it be heaven, hell, nirvana, or whatever else was in store.

He broke onto the roof of a building, and opened the bottles of alcohol and pain killers that he brought with him, before pouring the both of them down his throat.

After giving it two minutes, he walked onto the edge of the building, and looked down. There were hundreds of cars and people on this street, but none of that mattered anymore.

He closed his eyes and leaned forwards…

He opened his eyes, and he found himself in a strange room filled with marble pillars and flooring.

“It looks like it was successful” he heard some man say.

He was confused. He was supposed to be dead. Why was he still breathing?

He looked around and found that he was surrounded by knights in armor and a young girl of about 16? 17? He wasn’t sure, but thought she looked familiar.

She began to speak to him, “For a long time, we have been under siege from the demons under the Demon Lord. He has plundered and murdered countless towns and villages, and we have no more means to stop him, no matter what we’ve tried. Save us sir hero! You’re our last hope.”

He was about to say something but immediately began vomiting onto the ground. His head was aching and he felt his body begin to shut down before finally fainting.
