Prologue 1

Post by Parantheon on Wed Apr 23, 2014 7:37 pm

I remember the good old days, you know, before the entire world went to shit. Everything was peaceful back then. My friends and I were just regular people. Well, we were as normal as outcasts could be. Back then, we all got along. We all took it easy, and we never really waited for life to give us what we wanted. We saw what we wanted, and we gave it our all to make it our own. It was great.

         My friends and I were a close group. We still are, even in this shitty world we live in now. I had many friends. There was Rin, Riku, Guppy, Mira, Kyle, Mattix, Dyson…and Jai. Rin was the silent type. Rin liked to look mysterious too. With the dark brown hair, the gray eyes, and the pale skin, we could all tell that Rin’s parents didn’t let anohito get out much. And the fact that Rin was very skinny didn’t help matters at all. Rin also stood about five foot and five inches.

         Riku was from Chile, and we never really got to see much of him before the disaster happened. Our little group of friends here in America would get together and we’d face chat with Riku. He was an oddball, as well, but he wasn’t as bad as the rest of us. He had his white hair with his brown eyes, and his skin was as pale as Rin’s. Riku and I weighed about the same, and he was the same height as Rin.

         Guppy was the shortest of all of us. Standing up, his forehead came to my chest. Guppy drank a lot of caffeine as a kid. Guppy looked like a miniature me, except that at the time the world ended I had dyed my hair white with red bangs, and he had kept his hair dark brown. His eyes were brown like mine and Riku’s, but his skin was very pale. Back then, he had a slightly average build and stood about five-foot-three.

         Mira was a blonde who had tried to dye her hair black once, but it came out blue. We all laughed when we saw how that turned out. We never let her live it down. She laughed as well, but not as hard as we all did. We laughed even harder when she told us that she had decided to keep the blue hair. That was a funny day. She’s had blue hair ever since. Her green eyes mix well with that blue hair of hers. I can’t lie. She has tannish skin, kind of like mine, and she is mildly skinny. She is also my height.

         Kyle is a classic joker. When he first tried to dye his brown hair red, it came out orange. That was almost as hilarious as when Mira’s hair first turned blue. They did their hair around the same time, too. It was a bit weird, but I guess it worked for the two of them. They were quite the couple. Kyle’s blue eyes matches his now red hair quite well. He has always been fond of the gym, not to work out or anything, but to make of fun of the jocks that go there.

           Mattix was a friend of mine who I met when I went to college. We hung out all of the time. His blonde hair with its reddish tint made him stand out in a crowd, and it also made him very popular on the campus. The reddish tint also caused me to make fun of how it made his hair look orange in the sunlight. He had taken martial arts classes back in junior high, and he loved wrestling. He even challenged me to friendly fights where I surprisingly held my own. I remember when he first told me that both of his parents were dead. I felt bad, but he was cool with how things had ended up. He’s a great friend.

          Dyson was my African American roommate back in college during my freshman year. He was a cool guy. He was your basic college jock, except for the fact that he never participated in sports. He was on the wrestling team, I think. I never saw him on the weekends because he was always out at parties. Whenever he came back from those parties, he was always wasted. He would tell me of his “adventures”, and I would sit there and act like I actually cared how many girls he supposedly “tongued down”. No matter what I say about him, though, he was still a great friend, and one of the reasons that made my freshman year worth it. Listening to his bullshit always made me laugh.

           Finally… we have Jai. I met Jai during my freshman year of college as well, near the end of it actually. Jai was the most amazing girl on campus. I remember when we first spoke. It was hard for me to believe that she was actually talking to me. It was like a dream. We spoke for a while, I guess, because we had started talking about midday, and by the time we had finished our conversation, it was quite late. I don’t remember much of what was said that day, because I had been staring into her deep brown eyes nearly the entire time, but she knows that, so I guess it was okay. She and my friends had not met until about a year ago, but they accepted her into the group. I really appreciated that.

            That is all of my friends. As I said before, we are a very close group. We came up with names that we all use, and we almost never use our real names outside of the group. That is something our little group of outcasts has always had. My name that they gave me was Paran. I have white hair with red bangs, brown eyes, and tan skin. Our names were something special for all of us, I guess. I have been friends with all of them for a long time now. Not even the end of the world could break the bond that we all held together, or at least, that is what we thought at the time.

Fixed that pronoun for ya.

Anyway, it's a nice character introduction from your point of view. o: But I couldn't really call it much of a prologue. (Which is like revealing a bit of what everything is like before the main story takes place// Which you did a bit of, but I guess Riku's and my additions to it will flesh out the small things you left out)

Can't wait to see how things turn out. (Wait, we still don't know what actually happened? Therefore, we can't really write about.. it..?)
