Nemesis adjusted his
hat as he walked through the Salem forest. Although he had travelled for days
without rest, he did not feel any tiredness; on the contrary, he was more and
more energetic, feeling himself getting closer and closer to his goal.
Bringing a hand to
his front trouser pocket he reached for his phone, surprised that there was a
"Hello, who am
I speaking to?"

everything is fine. I'll leave you now that I'm busy, I'll call you back."
Although it pleased
him to receive calls from the Father of the orphanage where he spent the last
two years of his adolescence, he did not want to be interrupted.
'I'm finally close
to my parents' hometown!'
On his 21st birthday
he had in fact told him that he was actually born in a small abandoned village
near Salem, and as soon as he found out, he packed a rucksack with all the
essentials and set off.

A village that by
now could not even be called such stood before his eyes.
"I have finally
Tears began to fall
from his eyes, although he did not understand the meaning of them.
"Why am I
crying? I can't stop crying and I feel a tightness in my heart..."
The first memory he
had was of when he was sixteen, with Father beside his bed in the orphanage,
everything else was a blur. Many doctors and psychologists examined him, but
none could restore his memory or understand the reason for his clinical state.
He felt something
rub against his left leg and wiping away the last tears that were running down
his face, he looked down.
"And what are
you doing here?..."
A black cat with a
red cape and a mouse in its mouth stared at him with its amaranth red eyes.
He tried to pet it
with one hand, but the cat started to run away towards the village, only to
stop and look at Nemesis.
"Are you going
to be my guide or are you just having fun running away?"
He began to chase
the cat, running along the now-eroded roads, as the houses now collapsed and
overgrown by vegetation.
When the cat stopped
he was on top of the steps of a completely destroyed house and, leaving the
carcass of the mouse in his mouth next to the remains of other small animals
that had suffered the same fate, he lay down, finally letting himself be
"You made me
chase you all this time just to take me to your house?"
scratching his head, he squared the house, noticing a detail that immediately
caught his attention. Next to the door of the dwelling was written his name.
"This was my

'...Am I really
talking to a cat?
The cat who had

cat? Ahahahahah, at least you've been well brought up.... Nice to meet you Mr
Cat, I am Nemesis. Thank you for bringing me to my home."
squeezed his raised paw and suddenly his vision became foggy until everything
went completely black and he felt his body fall on the staircase.
"It's been a long time... Master."
When Nemesis woke
up, it took him some time to recover. His sight had not yet fully returned and
what he perceived was only a large source of light in front of him.
After a few seconds
that seemed eternal he was able to see, although he could not believe his eyes.
can see me? Ohoh"
In a room made of
light, a person with four wings held out his hand to help him up.
"Who are you?
...Am I dead?"
"An angel and
don't worry.... You are not dead, your time has not yet come."
Her smile and eyes
as calm as the sea relaxed him as she grabbed his hand and stood up.
"Where am I at
"Right now you
are in a somewhat special place, let's say it is a realm that belongs to me,
but you will only be here for a short time don't worry. "
"I'm not really

hurting, and too much was happening too fast for him to be able to process what
He began to get lost
in his thoughts, only to realise that the angel in front of him was watching
him with a smile.
Taking his hand that
was still towards him he helped himself up.
choose well the answer you wish to give me. I will ask you a question that
could completely change your life."
"I imagine you
arrived here while you were in Salem, and thus on the trail of your parents. Do
you really want to find out about your past even though you will face much
greater dangers than you could even imagine, or do you prefer to live a quiet life
without any problems?"
"Right now I
don't have many certainties, but if I am sure of anything, it is that I would
like to find out who I am and my origins."
"I like your
spirit, I hope you will never deny your decision."
Letting go of
Nemesis's hand, he took a few steps away, only to rise into the air with his
path you have chosen will allow you to know all that you do not currently know,
but currently your shoulders are not yet strong enough to bear the weight of
your responsibilities. Your quest towards the truth will be long and arduous, but
do not give up. Always believe in yourself and your determination."
As he continued to
fly upwards even the light that was dazzling began to fade, as if following
him, giving way to shadows.
"Also, I will
give you a small gift, as a token of the friendship I have towards your
"Wait, you know
something about them?"
For the first time,
the smile on her face broke for a brief moment, only to return as before.
"I'm sorry but
our paths will part here. Good luck Nemesis!"
He couldn't even
finish saying what he wanted to say to him, that darkness enveloped him
As if it had been a
bad dream he woke up screaming. Looking around he found himself in a stone room
with only a lantern attached to the wall illuminating it and a wooden door.
Standing up he saw a
strange blue box hanging in the air, and trying to catch it with one hand it
opened, becoming a writing, something he had only read in light-novels or video

Nemesis set out to discover his past, using only the little information he had obtained from the 'Father' of his orphanage. Following the trail he arrived at a Tower higher than the sky where he will face magical and dangerous adventures.
Mythological creatures and gods watch the Tower, enjoying the spectacle it offers, while others prefer to live inside it, influencing plans and even people.
