Things are foggy; all I know is that this city is gone. Everywhere I look is rubble and the occasional body. My left side is all, but numb. There’s debris everywhere, I can’t remember how I even got here. Somewhere a child is crying. I see a kid standing in the open street; he looks like he’s half dead. Somewhere ahead of him there are people coming through the mess towards us. Before I can even twitch they spot him and gun him down. What’s going on? I’m hiding now, but I can hear them. “Scan’s picked up something over there.”
“Is it contaminated?”
“What the hell, this can’t be right”
Then I’m lost in the blackness of my own mind.

You know I abuse this word a lot, but in all seriousness, that was grim.

more tomorrow, when I'm awake
and it did turn out a bit darker than my usual writings.

When I wake up it seems like everything is dark and sterile. “Is this a hospital?’ I’m surprised by my own voice. Someone notices me moving and comes to check. They run off immediately. I try to look around a bit. I seem to be mostly intact. I can see my legs and my right arm. My left side is still numb and sealed from the waist to my neck. Part of my head is sealed as well. A man in white checks up on me, he sees me reaching for my face. “Everything there is fine, but I’m afraid that ear is pretty burnt and your arm is simply gone. As a matter of fact I’m amazed you managed to survive as long as you did.”
“Where am I?” He frowns.
“Someplace safe, for now. We need to run some more tests to make sure you’re not infec…” He’s cut off by a tall CAST
“You’re going to be just fine.” He says, like he’s sure he’s telling a lie. “You should rest now.” He nods to the guy in white, who goes off and fiddles with some buttons. The next thing I know I’m out. Dreaming of some female CASTs in their short metal skirts.

Too soon, my dreams turn to people running from fire and death everywhere and that kid as he’s mowed down by gunfire. I awaken from the nightmare, only to find I’m strapped to a bed in a well lit room with the large CAST male from before. I can see him better now. He’s a strange lavender color, he turns to me slowly, “Sorry about the restraints, you have a habit of sleepwalking and that could be dangerous here.”
“I know you…” I start
“You can discuss that with me later” he cuts me off. “We’ve fixed you up pretty well”
I look at my side, surprised to see an arm there. “How?” I ask.
“It’s the same tech as with us CASTs. The nerves are connected and everything should be fine. There should be no difference between that and the real thing, except it may be a bit better.”
Just as he says I can even feel my fingertips. “Why do all this for me, I was sure you’d end up just shooting me.” He seems a bit put off by this.
“I wouldn’t let them do that, but you’re still a bit banged up. You’ll need some time to get used to the arm and the… internal changes.” He just ignores my puzzled look and steps out of the room. After a day or so, they tell me that he probably meant the fact that they had to replace some of my organs where I was wounded. It’s too much of a clean story for me, I just don’t buy it, but there’s not a lot I can do in my condition.

Sleep comes rarely, this seems familiar to me. The doctors say I’ll start remembering more as time goes on. It’s been a month now, since I’ve been awake and aware of my surroundings. A nice quiet night I manage to get some sleep. In my dream I’m back in that city as all hell breaks loose. People scream and burn here in this hell. Soon it’s all over and all I can hear is a loud ringing and some kids crying. I look down and my flesh and blood arm is there. There’s something wrong though, I can see black things crawling through the skin. Suddenly, I find myself in a hole. On my knees in about a foot of warm water. There’s a massive dark-colored sword broken to my right and I’m holding two guns. I remember a graveyard with only one grave and a woman in red talking to me, “For every darkness, there is a light, you should always remember that.” And then a world of pain comes rushing into me. All I can do is try to wake up without screaming.

After another few days the docs come in to tell me I can go, but the big guy wants to talk.
They lead me to a small room overlooking a reddish desert. The large CAST turns to me and says, “Hi”
“Is that all you wanted to say.” I can remember being a smart :):):).
He chuckles at this, “You always where a smart :):):). Anyway, I called you here to ask you to join us.”
“I remember you, you’re Ki…” he cuts me off again.
“No, don’t use that name, call me Kiryu. Do you remember your own name yet?” he asks.
“Yeah, I remember everyone called me Night.”
“Well Night, we have people in all areas of the local governments. The planet you where found on is called Parum, the city was Mellvore. We still don’t know exactly what happened there. The truth is… you’ve been on ice for a few years so we could run a few tests.”
“How many years and what kind of tests?” I snap back.
“About 16 years.” He almost mumbles this. “And the tests where to see if you where infected with a virus we saw spread through the survivors. The good news is you’re clean… of that.”
“Shit… 16 years…” This is all I could say.

They set me up with a place to live on the desert planet Moatoob. In exchange I listened to what the people had to say. I learned there where three planets in the system. Parum, where I was found, inhabited by mostly CASTs and run by the Alliance Military. Moatoob, where I was living, mostly Beasts here, things are run by a consortium of rogues and pirates. Neudaiz, with Newmans making up the most of the population and being run by the Communion of Gurhal, a batch of religious nuts. And the Guardians Colony, inhabited by mostly humans, but the population was a bit more balanced. I soon found myself with a few connections within the rogues of Moatoob and keeping my benefactors informed of everything I learned. Then the SEED attacked for the first time.

I wish you would make more with one post because i get so dragged into it lol :D good job so far

It looked like all hell was breaking loose again. The SEED were alien life forms, like parasites, they where attracted to something in our system and invaded in full force. After a while a group from the Military, Communion, Rogues, and Guardians seemed to gain control of things, they even announced that the source of the SEED invasion was destroyed. Everything seemed fine, and then I got a call from Kiryu, “Meet a messenger at the pub in Dagora.” Something just told me it was going to be a long day.
