Uh... I FORGOT TO COPY THE LINK BUT CHECK THE THIRD PAGE!
A little backstory info. One afternoon I was bored, so I wrote this back in December 2011 based around the holiday festivities that were going on in the forum at the time. I posted the story in the Skype Chatroom where it was mostly met with positive feedback. But I never bothered to write a second episode so this project really died. But after some events that happened back in early June I decided to upgrade what I had and I started working on a second episode which at the time of posting I'm about to finish.
Anyway, I apologize for any grammar mistakes, hope you enjoy and I'm glad to listen to any complaints or criticism you may have!
The elevator's door opened, revealing a magnificent silver city with citizens walking from here to there. The rookie stepped outside the elevator and looked his surroundings, he watched a young couple, each wearing a T-shirt of a blue hedgehog, that were talking about some "newcomers" to the city.
Without any regrets, the rookie walked to the main district doors before him that were guarded by a pair of heavily-armed soldiers.
"Halt! If thou wish to enter the Main District of the city, thou shalt say thy name." one of the guards said as they kept the newcomer from entering.
"I'm just a visitor, I wish to enter the Main District!" the rookie said.
The pair of guards said nothing and allowed the rookie to pass who was smiling as he walked to the now-opening city doors.
As soon as he entered, he was greeted by a ginormous white city full of happy citizen walking around and enjoying their times. There was a police officer guarding the streets on every corner, staring silently at the public.
Out of nowhere, a flying blue creature crashed with the newcomer that sent both tumbling down to the floor, after getting back to his senses the blue creature stared at the newcomer.
"Watch it you dodo bird! I'm in a hurry and you broke my pace!" The blue creature asked.
"Oh I'm really sorry! I just got here..." The rookie replied as he stared at the three yellow eyes of the creature.
"You don't have an username yet? That can be arranged. Here, follow me."
The blue creature started walking deeper into the city with his short and stubby three legs, before turning backwards and saying "I don't have all day!"
The rookie followed the blue creature across the city until they reached a giant building in the middle of town.
"This building is the Forum Server, it will give you an username and job on the city. It's the most busy building in the whole damned place! Come on, let's go inside."
The Forum Server was a tall silver building, it was nearly deserted but it had a lonely computer on the center that gave people an identity, the rookie walked to the computer and stared at the blue creature floating over his shoulder.
"So what do I have to do now... Uh...?"
"Call me Blue, pleased to meet you." The blue creature said as he pointed one of his three tentacles to the rookie.
The rookie grabbed the tentacle of the Wisp and shook it, after doing so he shivered and cleaned his hand, and then stared at the computer.
"Press your finger in the monitor, it will check your IP and generate an username and job for you" Blue said as he boringly floated in circles.
"IP?" the rookie asked.
"I'm not going to explain it now, it's tough and uh... I don't really know how to describe it either. Just do it!" Blue replied.
Without thinking twice, the rookie pressed his fingers in the monitor. The monitor screen started to scan the fingers of the rookie with a cyan laser, after a few seconds a voice informed, "Please, check the monitor for the scan results."
The rookie stared at the monitor, and then at Blue who was floating in circles again, Blue stopped and stared at the monitor, and looking at the username of the newcomer he commented "I'm still gonna call you Rookie if you don't mind..."
Blue and the Rookie stepped outside the building and stared at two guys who were arguing about... Girls.
"What are you two babbling about?" Blue yelled as he approached the pair.
"Oh nothing, we're just uh... Talking I guess..." One of them said.
The two of them stared at the newcomer, and stared at Blue.
"Who is he?" One of them asked.
"He's my son, what do you think." Blue replied sarcastically.
One of the pair walked to the Rookie and stretched his hand at him.
"Call me Chibi, pleased to meet you. The dinosaur standing along me is Rawrdom, he's a nutjob so don't mind him."
Rawrdom smacked Chibi's head but Chibi instantly punched Rawrdom in the crotch as a response.
"Blue calls me Rookie, pleased to meet you two."
"Don't mind them, they're the lover couple from here." Blue muttered.
Rawrdom heard that and punched Blue as he said "Screw you Blue!", sending him flying to the Rookie's hands.
The group stopped talking when they witnessed two fugitives getting caught by a pair of police officers who had dogtags in their necks with their names.
As they dragged the two fugitives through the road one of them said "This is what happens when you go nuts in the Marketplace Zone!"
The two guards opened the doors leading to the outskirts of the Main District and threw the rampaging pair outside.
Blue hid behind the Rookie's back as the two guards returned to their positions on the corners of the street.
"Who are those?" the Rookie asked.
"Those are Moderators, they enforce the law in the Main District and keep the district safe from uninvited guests." Blue said, he pointed at one and said, "That one is Sean and that one is Carbo... Or was that one Carbo and the other one Sean? I don't remember. Anyway let's move on, I'm gonna show you the rest of the city"
Blue showed the Rookie the hotspots of the city, including the Showcase Zone, the General Discussion Zone and the Marketplace Zone. At the end of his journey Blue showed the rookie the giant tree on the District, where the various citizens of the District could decorate it with something from their belongings.
Standing on a staircase was one of the Moderators, her dog tag said "Flyboy Fox" and she was placing a piece of artwork on the tree.
Blue's body started buzzing, he stared at the Rookie and said "Gotta leave right now, I'll see you later. Have fun!" as he started floating away.
The Rookie stared at the leaving Blue and back to the Christmas tree, he grabbed a sketch he had drawn before he entered the city and left it on the tree, the girl that was above the staircase looked at the rookie and waved her hand saying "Thanks for your contribution!"
The Rookie waved his hand in response and walked away from the tree, he had no idea what to do now that Blue was done with his tour, he started asking the citizens for a place where he could spend the night.
With no luck, he sat on the corner of the main street and tried to get some sleep on the hard floor. One of the citizens approached him and asked "You alright mate?"
"Yeah, I guess. I don't have a house here." the Rookie asked.
"You should go to the Blur Hotel, it's over there near the Showcase Zone!" The citizen said as he pointed to a building crossing the street.
The Rookie said thanks to the citizen and started running to the hotel, after a few minutes he reached the hotel doors, it was a giant building with easily over fifty floors. Taking a deep breath he opened the doors and entered the building.
The manager of the hotel greeted the Rookie, his name was Rock the Place and he worked on the hotel for years now.
"Welcome to the Blur Hotel! How may I serve you dear friend?" The manager asked.
"Um... Yeah! I'd like a room please." The Rookie said.
Place grabbed the keys from an inventory and handled them to the Rookie.
"Here you go, Room 63-B. Enjoy your stay!" Place said.
The Rookie entered the elevator and went to the very last floor, walking through the hall he looked at the different paintings on the hall until he found his room.
It was a medium-sized room, it was comfortable and had a bed near a table. It had a beautiful view of the Main District and the ocean that contained unknown lands thanks to the wall being made of transparent material.
The Rookie sat on the bed and thought I'm gonna enjoy this place as he lay down to take a nap, as he closed his eyes Blue appeared outside of the room's windows flying in circles again until he crashed with the window and fell to the floor below.
To be continued...
