This world has offered many things, but we never treated it well and nor did we try to save it. We just keep on destroying it as much as we want and trying to gain everything.
Roy,You must remember "That's how this world's run", Those were the last few words of my grandfather before he died.
My grandfather was a simple man. He used to tell me -"Just enjoy your life to the fullest".
But I don't know "Why did he tell me that?!"
I never had a friend or girlfriend. Because I was always alone. No one ever spoke to me. I don't why?
I think I am weak and I have a sticky figure. That is why no one spoke to me except my homeroom teacher "John''.
He is the one who always takes care of me. After my whole family died in a fire accident.
Even today I don't know how I escaped from the fire accident. It happened in
[August 8th, 2013]
Time- 7:00 pm (19:00)
It was my birthday. Everyone in our house was ready to celebrate my birthday. My dad, mom, grandpa and grandma all smiled looking at me.
That was the last time I saw them.
My father told me he bought the ticket for a movie so I waited in our car. My parents and grandparents took some time to come out of the house. Suddenly there was a fire.
Everyone who used to live around our house nearby came out and started to shout " Is someone there??". The firefighters came in time and started to put out the fire but they couldn't save any of them except me as I wasn't inside the house in the first place!
From that day I never enjoyed my life till today. I lost everyone on my birthday who used to love me the most in this entire World!

Time- 2:30 pm (14:20)
It's been eight years since my family died. I came here to visit their grave.
The priest started to chant the words and I prayed for them to be safe in another world.
You don't need to worry. I will be safe here. I will be a good boy as I told you, mom and dad.
Grandpa I will try to live my life to the fullest as you asked me to. But I don't know how to live as you told me to live. So, I will figure it out somehow in one way or another, so you don't need to be sad.
Grandma, you were so kind to me but you never told me anything, but I know you will be happy wherever you are and you will always be with me.
I am going now and I will come again next year.
Today's weather is good. I think I can go out to the park but I don't have any friends to take them out with me. I should try to make some friends to spend time with.
Saying that I got inside the taxi and seated.

Time- 3:30 pm (15:30)
It's been an hour, why hasn't sensei come here yet?
He said, Today he will tell me something very Important.
Suddenly, there is a voice calling, "Roy, Roy, I am here,come here soon"
The voice sounds familiar," its sensei John"
He told me to come to the cafe called- "New cafe". Suddenly, there was a woman who was standing with him and they came together to the cafe. He introduced her to me, "She is the woman I am going to marry. Her name is "Iris".
He introduced his fiance to me. I was surprised. She looked so friendly.
She started to talk to me" I heard from John that you lost your family in the fire accident from that day you started to live with John and he told you're his favorite student's in the class" is that true?
Yes, I think so...
I have been living with sensei for a long time, but he never told me that he had a girlfriend. It's the first time he introduced someone to me.
The truth to be told he didn't propose to me nor we have been dating for so long. He is my childhood friend. We were at kindergarten at that time and he asked me: "Will you marry me?".
I thought he will forget about that, but
A few days back he came to the village and asked me about the marriage.
I never thought a person can remember some promise that was made a long time ago, but he remembered it till now and waited for my reply and that is why I came to reply to his question.
Now I want an answer from you. Will he be able to keep me happy and safe?
Without hesitation, Roy answered.
He will keep you safe and happy because he is someone not related to me or my family. But when he came to know that I lost my family and he took care of me. He took someone like me then kept me safe and happy. He was like an elder brother to me. That's why I can say with confidence that he will keep you safe and make your life happy.
That's a surprise! I never thought that he is so responsible in taking care of a kid and it's a surprise for me as well when I came to know about it.
While we were kids, he was stupid and irresponsible and he won't take care of anything. But when you told me about him I think he changed a lot.
Then we started to talk peacefully, it looked like a small family reunion.
I asked them, If I could call them father and mother because when I am with them it makes me feel like I'm with my own family.
That was too soon to ask them that. As they are not family nor are they married couples, and I thought it was wrong that I shouldn't have asked them.
But they both didn't get angry nor shouted at me. They just blushed and started to smile looking at my face, they told me, "You can call us as you wish from now on as we will be your father and mother".
Suddenly a waiter brought a cake to our table.
I thought it was for their wedding celebration, but on top of the cake there was "Happy Birthday Roy".
I know Roy after your family passed away! You never wished to celebrate your birthday. You have always been alone from that day.
Even though I tried to encourage you, you never listened to me. I thought it's natural for people after they lose their loved one's and they will not forget that day, also what happened to them.
Naturally, you don't need to be sad from now on. We will always be with you!
That is right from now on you, me and John we are all going to live together. So you don't need to worry about anything!
That was my happiest day ever after I lost my family for so many years. I got a new family.
That's what I thought without knowing anything about what was going to happen next.
Time- 4:30 pm (16:30)
After the celebration of my birthday. we were on our way to home as Iris went to her house. While we were crossing the road I heard a noise.
"SO, YOU'RE THE CHOSEN ONE!"
I heard the voice through my ears and I asked sensei, "Did you hear any voice sensei?"
He didn't respond and once again I asked, "Sensei, didn't you hear my voice?"
He didn't reply and the traffic signal changed suddenly. A truck was coming at full speed towards the sensei. I couldn't stand still and I pushed him but in the process I was the one who got in front of the truck.
After that, I don't know what happened to me.
Suddenly It was dark all around and when I opened my eyes ,I found myself lying on a bed. It looked normal to me. I stood up and went out to look outside. When I got out, I found myself in a village.
It looked like the village which sensei and I used to play in a video game.
I just started to look around the village. Suddenly a Boar was heading towards me and started to chase me. I don't why but I had a doubt and I started to run.
I didn't feel anything while I was running. It felt like I was just jogging. I couldn't stop myself and there was A man who was standing in front of me and I just dashed him and he shouted looking at me -"Aarush why are you so naive that you can't fight with a boar?!"
I don't know what to say, when he was calling me Aarush but my name is Roy.
You skinny fellow often runs from danger. When will you ever learn to face the danger?
He called me a skinny fellow, then I noticed that my body looked skinny and I didn't grow at much height or weight. But why is the color of my hair "WHITE"?!. I had beautiful black hair , now why has my hair color changed?
Suddenly, my mouth opened itself and said, "I am sorry,leader! I will fight back without fear".
Now go there and fight that Boar. I don't know what to say but my body didn't listen to me. Instead, it listened to the man's voice. I also don't know what to do?
I was standing there and the boar came at me with its full strength and I didn't have any sword or weapon with me .What am I going to do now?
Someone, please save me from this crazy man and the boar.
Suddenly there was a voice saying- You don't need to worry about anything. You will be fine as long as I am here.
I asked the voice- But how will I be fine with it?
Then it replied, I will tell you about these matters later, but for now just take this pendant.
I don't know what is with that pendant. After wearing the pendant the voice told me to spin the pendant
It's a pendant that I had never seen before. It had two sides with two figures .one figure looked like a demon and the other figure looked like an angel. I don't know what these figures indicate but for now, I can only trust this voice because this voice just brought me to this world. I don't want to die even in this world.
After wearing the pendant,I spined it! The voice said it looks nice on you and my name is red. You can call us red and I will help you from today onwards
Ok now, just what I should do to defeat this boar.
Red told me to just relax and focus by closing my eyes thinking of the Boar.
I just closed my eyes to focus and there was a sudden feeling of heat when I opened it. There was fire in my hands and I didn't know what to do with that!
Red said: Just throw the fire towards the boar and the boar will die.
I just followed the instructions given by red and threw it.
Then the man came and told me it was a good catch. You shouldn't run by looking at danger! Rather you must chase the danger away!
Ha ha ha…
It's good, you have improved, you must get ready for this year's ceremony.
Huh? What ceremony?!
Did you forget what we were speaking about yesterday?
Get ready, we only have three days left until then!
He just told me to get ready and gone. I called out "Red" but it didn't reply to me!
Red, red are you there?
Where am I now? Red please speak to me!!!.
I must know what is happening here, what in the world is this place and where am I?
