Where do I begin?
I could tell you about my boring life. Regular, plain, unremarkable me. I lived in a tiny apartment in Montreal. I worked long hours and hated my boss. Exactly the same as everyone else in the world.
Until I was mugged. My purse was taken and in the process the man stabbed me in the gut. By the time I was found and taken to the hospital, all my blood ran out. They tried to save me, but couldnít. I died.
Only I didnít. Minutes later I strolled out of the hospital like nothing had happened. Only everything had changed, everything seemed louder, brighter, more tangible. Eventually I was told that I was different and there were more people like me. I found out that I had a life before the one that Iím experiencing now.
I was called Alexis then. She lived hundreds of years before me until she decided to forget everything. I havenít figured out why she did thatÖ and she doesnít remember either.
She talks to me. In my head. I hear her, and she hears my thoughts. Its rather disturbing, knowing Iím never alone with my thoughts.
Alexis is really aggressive. Once, she took control of my body to fight off some other people who are different. They didnít like me, and I donít know why. I suspect it has something to do with Alexis, but she isnít telling.
The people who are different call themselves Eternals. They donít die. They live forever unless their source is taken from their body. Eternalsí sources are black crystals, located somewhere in the neck. The source gives them heightened awareness and special powers too. The powers seem like fantasy, like a magic spell. To use that spell, an eternal has to sing a very specific tune. Alexis taught me one that causes excruciating pain to everyone nearby me. I donít really like anything mystic and don't like the pain that the song caused a friend of mine when she used it.
What am I supposed to do about Alexis? I don't know if I should fight the Eternals that don't like me for a reason that I don't know.
Sometimes I wish I could go back to plain, unremarkable me.
