about this story

As I awakened I realized I was in a small and dark hallway, beside me were two people, one boy and one girl. Both of them were still fast asleep. I decided that I needed to figure out what is going on so I walked down the hallway. Slowly I came to an end of the hallway, when I stopped I found that I was standing in front of a gigantic metal door. I tried pulling and pushing the door open but it wouldn’t work. Tired and defeated I gave up and decided to walk back. Suddenly the door flung open, I jumped back in confusion. Beyond the door was a bright ray of light, being in the darkness for a long time has made the light unbearable for me. I clutched my eyes in pain as they slowly got used to the light, once they have finished adjusting I saw that what was outside the door was a dystopia, a plain and barren city with grey houses and streets, people whose actions resembled zombies crawled around. All of them, both male and female were bald and wore grey jumpsuits; none of them differ from each other. I walked down the street wondering where I am, when I noticed that there were giant flickering screens throughout the streets and buildings. Suddenly the screens came to a focus, in front of it was a skinny and muscular looking man who wore a big black cloak, he stood still for a moment, and then started to speak. “Companions who share my dream, I welcome you into a new era, today this holy and sacred ground shall be named as an utopia, we shall live peacefully without any disturbance and be happy as long as we live…LONG LIVE MAL, OUR HOME!!!” he boomed. “LONG LIVE MAL, LONG LIVE MAL!!!” the people around me started to cheer. The man on the screen continued his speech for a long time, until another man who seemed to be his subordinate appeared and spoke quietly beside his ear and slowly disappeared again. The man on the screen frowned, and said, “I have just been informed terrible, terrible news, it seems that we have got our self a traitor in this city.” “The baker, john, who we all loved has stepped into the wrong path, he has just finished vandalizing one of my precious city walls. We have caught him but I shall remind you all what traitors deserves” The scene of the screen shifted and there sitting in a room was a man who looked terrified, he was trying to say something even though his mouth was muffled. His eyes were filled with terror as the man from before entered the screen. The skinny and muscular man slowly lifted his cloak and revealed a gun in his pocket. He pulled out the gun and pointed it at the man who was muffled. Without a second thought he shot the man in chest, after that he fired a barrage of bullets at the muffled man and stopped only once the other man was no longer recognizable. Again he faced the screen, as a smile slowly appeared on his face, “This is what happens to traitors.” Once I have realized what I saw I fell immediately and began to puke, it was unbelievable and despicable. I felt anger and rage rush through me as if someone has just taken a loved one away from me. I looked at the screen with a mixed expression of rage and horror as I decided that I have to deliver justice to the man on the screen. Though I have no memory of who I am and where I was, seeing that scene was enough to determine what my goals have become. I will set this city to peace and I will become the ally of justice…that was what I thought.
