Before humanity was established, the Ancient Founder built a sacred place during his architecture. Inside such a mysterious place was a huge mirror of an unknown purpose. The Ancient Founder, who crafted not only the temple and mankind, but the world itself, then departed to the unknown as soon as its labors were completed.
But what of the relic in the temple that existed before man?
Seven millenniums later, four children awaken inside the temple. Their past is unknown; their names, their families, their homes. Everything was a mystery to these curious children. They all saw what was in front of them though: a huge mirror. They also heard a voice, neither of the kids couldn't determine if it was a man or a woman speaking to them. This mysterious voice was impossible to define, but the message was clear.
"You are not destined to walk outside this chamber."
But ignorance overtook their minds, and not one paid heed to this voice of warning. They wanted to know who they were, they wanted to find their families again and their homes. They want to resume a normal life.
After embarking to return to civilization, they stop at a city. To their surprise, all the people that lived there looked like they had been stripped of their emotions. No happiness. No sadness. No anger. No fear. They were walking around like zombies. Sure, they appeared to go about their daily lives. But something was clearly wrong.
"Gr, what a bunch of dullheads!" said one of the children angrily. She called herself Charlie. She thought it had a nice ring to it, but was angry when the others disagreed. She seemed to be the most daring out of the bunch, the group daren't push her buttons. "I don't know, Charlie." countered Ethan, he seemed to be the most quiet out of the bunch, so it was a surprise to the group that he even spoke up as usually he lets the group talk for him. "I feel like something bad as happened here. I can relate to such a feeling. So let's not jump to name calling." "Yeah!" said the most hopeful kid of the bunch, Jasmine, she seemd to be the one to encourage the group to go on this journey in the first place. "We need to cheer these people up, calling them names is counterproductive to that." "Gr, leave me alone! I can say what I want!" shouted Charlie, in self-defense. She looked at the fourth kid, a boy named Murray. He was the most curious out of the bunch, and always stopped to check anything that catches his intrest. He seemed the most curious about the voice back at the temple. But alas, Charlie had a question for him. "Do you think I'm wrong?" Murray, was afraid to anger her further. "Y-y-yes, Ch-charlie, you're r-right!" that's all he could spit out. He didn't like to lie, but he felt it was best to do so in such a situation.
Charlie, then gave a smirk before going deeper into the city. The rest tagged along in response to her action. What could have made these people so blank? Murray wasn't the only one who was truly the most curious; they all were equally. It was scary to see everyone have their face stripped off of any form of emotion. They looked like they lacked the will to live, the hope to see another day... As more and more questions piled up with little to now answers, a familiar booming voice returned to the hearts of these children.
"See what you have done to mankind, children? You must return... and all shall be revealed..."
"What did we do!?" Charlie shouted in anger. Jasmine shushed her by covering her mouth.
"Let's not anger this person. If we want to know, he said it clearly we must go back."
And so they started their adventure back to the temple. It was a long journey back, but they desired answers and were willing to do anything to get them. They also couldn't just stand in a cultureless bland city. Through the thick forests, up tall mountains, through clear skies and hrash weathers. It took them days to find the temple from which they left. But upon finding it, and entering the dark chambers, the mirror on the centered circular alter began to shoot out light. The children were slowly dragged towards the mirror.
"You must return. Mankind can not have hope if the relfection of their emotions tread outside the mirror!" said the voice in a cold, emotionless tone.
No matter how powerful the attempts were to escape the mirror, it was proven futile.
Mankind had hope again.
The chamber of the mirror fell in silence and darkness until the end of time.
I got bored, wrote this. Took me 30 minutes, idea came on a whim. I personally see a few things to improve on, maybe I will pick this up later again? Dunno.
