It was another cool autumn day in Germany. The summer shops were closing their doors early. It was as if they were trying to shun the oncoming frozen air by the locking and jingling of their master’s keys. At the same time the colder month shops excitedly opened their doors. They were welcoming the season with open arms and enticing the cool breeze as if it were an old friend or a new customer from another country. For the people however, it was another typical day in town. Cars bustled down the road and, occasionally, honked at the early morning jay walkers. While the people, safely on the streets, chatted loudly over cups of coffee or on their bluetooths and cell phones.
However, this wasn’t any “typical” day for me. In fact, I don’t think I’ll be having anymore “typical” days from now on. As I write this, I begin to wonder what actually caused these vile turns of events to happen. Was it the unexpected betrayal that had been planned behind my back since the day I made the Promise? Perhaps…..maybe…….possibly it was the “thing,” the poisonous mark etched on my face since the day I was born. My birthmark, my curse, the X.
My name is Jaeger and I was once part of a special organization called the Elite III. Though, I should warn you, I am not going to speak of how “wonderful” the organization is. Oh no, I’m going to tell you how I finally broke free of the organization’s puppet strings and followed my heart…..my soul, to find the true evils that lurked in the organization. This all started on a “typical” day in town, where I finally got to see the girl of my dreams once more. Where I found where I truly belonged in life. Where the true meaning of the X that still plagues my left cheek, was learned.
I am Jaeger AliXine, and I refuse to stay quiet any longer. This is my story.
