It was my first day at the compound. Everything was a sterile shade of grey, from the walls to the staff, everything seemed so controlled and clean. I believe I arrive late but I can't quite remember if I arrived at all. All that I do know is that I was in a room, not unlike a high school gymnasium, filled with people waiting for the days events to being. The instructor emerged from what seemed like thin air and began, well, he began instructing. As he was talking a Mech, a humanoid machine with enough room for one pilot, emerged from the back of the room. It was attached to a crane with was holding most of its weight. Once it came to a stop a small group of men removed it lower half, its legs. As a class, we were shown the entrance into the mech. There were no stairs just a bubble of clear fluid, that protruded from its waist where the legs had been removed. We were to reach our arms into this fluid and once contact was made we were sucked slowly into the cockpit. Once we were comfortably secure in the cockpit the lower half of the mech was put back into place. The rest of the day was spent learning how the control the various functions of the mech, walking, running, and most importantly fighting. To the shock of my instructors and classmates alike I excelled at all the fore-mentioned activities. They said I was a natural. I was going somewhere.|
The next day I showed up wearing jean shorts and sandals, this apparently is banned and I would not be allowed to participate in the days activities wearing the clothes I had on. I had to find a new outfit and quick. The only problem being is that we were not allowed to leave the compound and that seemed to be my only option if I wanted to participate. I snuck out. Out into the world which looking surprisingly like Derby Connecticut.
The First thing I remember is being in a large parking lot which lay between a rundown strip-mall and a deserted highway. I made my way to the sporting goods store and asked the clerk a thing or two. He seemed to be attracted to me but that wasn't important, even thought one would think it would be. I had to buy socks and a new pair of shorts which I found rather quickly. i paid and was soon on my way,
I must have hitched a ride with someone, trying to get back to the compound, but found myself at a large entertainment center. It had movie theaters, a reception area, which was being used for a wedding, and an ice hockey rink. The compound was below the Ice hockey rink so thats where I headed. Not knowing exactly where to go I wandered around the rink for a while. I must have found some ice skates because I was skating with well trained hockey players and holding my own. Soon I tired of this and left the rink and entered a small room off the rink.
It is here where my world collapsed. When I entered the room I found some friends and some strangers, all of whom were waiting for my arrival. Before they had time to explain, things began to crumble and fall from the world. The ice skating rink was the first to good, falling down into the world, revealing cliffs and an abyss that I could not see the bottom of. The stadium was next to go and with it the walls of the stadium. The new world was starting to come into picture, My company and I where balancing on what remained of the floor of the small room off the rink. We looked around at the open sky above and the emptiness bellow. Fear started to set in. Soon we saw the creatures of this world flying overhead, Some of them were dark and foreboding while other possessed a certain levity about them. One of the creatures came down to meet me and my company. It looked like a very large manta-ray from a distance but as it came closer I could see that instead of the sleek skin possessed by it water-bound brethren this fellow had a coat of soft blue fur. It came to a stop and motioned for us to mount it. Obviously we did as this creature requested for who know what would have happen if we did not. It took off in a slow gentle motion.
As we flew into the wintery sky I could see where we previously resided. The small room off the rink was smack between two ancient looking mountain. As we flew past the mountain I witnessed the marriage between the Goblin Queen and The Mountain King which took place on the face of a cliff. They stood side by side, not touching but proclaiming their union to whomever had the ears to listen, maybe to the sky or to the earth itself. This union was not holy and I had to do something. I jumped off my furry blue sky manta-ray and landed in between the royal newlyweds. I proceeded to grab the cliff they were standing on and rip the mountain in two as I fell steadily to the ground. I remember repeating this action a few times. I woke up before I could suffer the wrath of those I have wronged.
Someone tell me what this means
