I woke up with a start, sweat dripping down my forehead as my breathing struggled to bring me to stability. I was lying in a coffin, black on the inside and red on the outside. My head was aching as I tried to take a look around. The sky was a dark purple and the floor was a similar to glass but tinted lighter purple. Crystal formations were everywhere, and parts of the floor had holes in them, some huge and some not. A little bit away from me was a throne and chest next to it.
"Where am I?" I asked, palming my face. When I did so, my hand hit what felt like a bone coming out of my head. I reeled with shock, gripping around my face and finding two hornlike bones protruding from my head.
"What's going on?! Why am I here?! Why am I like this?!" I got up and climbed out of the coffin, stumbling a bit as I tried to regain my composure. I surveyed my surroundings, but all I saw were crystal formations and holes. I slumped myself into the throne and released a breath I had been holding.
"Am I really the only one here?"
I shot up, looking around.
"BEFORE YOU DO SOMETHING STUPID LIKE SUICIDE, I WILL TELL YOU THAT I CAN JUST BRING YOU BACK AS IF YOU NEVER DID ANYTHING LIKE THAT."
"Who are you? Come out you coward!"
"YEAH, NO. LOOK, I CHOSE YOU FOR A TASK CAUSE I KNEW YOU WOULD APPEAL TO A LARGE AUDIENCE, AND, WELL, I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY LIKE."
"What are you talking about? Who is they?"
"IVE TAKEN YOUR DEAD BODY AND TURNED IT INTO A DEMON SO YOU CAN SERVE THE GOD OF TIME. TO PUT IT SIMPLY, YOU ARE AT THEIR MERCY."
"Are…Are you a god? Then that means I'm a chosen one…"
"TECHNICALLY, I MEAN, I COULD HAVE USED ANYO-"
"The chosen one, huh? I guess I have no choice but to serve my overpowered god that can probably easily give me the high life."
I was starting to wrap my head around this situation. I had always speculated that there was some kind of god at work, since science is only what we can sense, and we only have 5 senses. What about the others? How many more senses are there than the 5 we have? Now I get to learn magic or maybe become OP! I'm already a demon who came back from the dead, what kind of power dose that have?!
"I JUST READ YOUR THOUGHTS AND NO. THE ODDS OF YOUR GOD LETTING YOU LIVE A NICE LIFE ARE LOW AT BEST, CONSIDERING THEY ARE BORED. I CANNOT INTERFEAR WITH YOU AGAIN, AS YOU ARE NOW THEIR PROPERTY."
Just like that, I was shut down.
"ANYWAYS, I'LL MAKE YOU A PORTAL TO THE OVERWORLD, BUT YOU OUGHT TO START DOING PRAYERS. UNLIKE ME, THE GOD OF TIME CANT PHYSICALLY INTERACT WITH SPACE, ONLY TIME. SO LISTEN TO THE IMPULSES THEY SEND YOU."
Pray huh? I got on my knees and closed my eyes.
"Oh great time god, I wish for OP powers and stuff."
"NOT LIKE THAT! THEY CANT PHYSICALLY INTERACT WITH YOU, BUT BEING THEIR ONLY DECIPLE, YOU CAN INHERIT TIME POWERS."
"Quick question, why are you going through all this trouble for the time whatever?"
"IF THEY LOSE INTREST IN THIS WORLD, TIME WILL STAND STILL FOR ALL ETERNITY. ONLY I AND YOU, A GOD AND A GODS DECIPLE, WILL BE UNAFFECTED. SO BASICALLY, YOU'RE THE WORLDS ONLY HOPE."
The pressure is on! They were watching me right now, like a roman emperor waiting for me to die for them! HAVE MERCY!
With that, they disappeared, leaving me alone in a pocket dimension void with only a glowing rune stone in my hand.
I looked myself over, noting that I had short hair, a quirky outfit out of some manga and two swords strapped to my waist. Was I expected to fight? Maybe I can just pause time and kill the baddies all like that. I have to make an awesome looking pose at the end when I resume time though…
I spent the next few minutes practicing 'resume time' poses till I realized I had no idea how to use my supposed new powers.
"Crap! I should have asked that space guy! Or is it a girl? Dose a ball of light have gender?"
Erasing such thoughts from my mind, I lifted the rune stone over my head and shouted,
But nothing happened.
I tried again to teleport.
But nothing happened.
It seemed this was hopeless.
"OH FOR MY SAKE, JUST PRESS THE RUNE ON THE STONE!"
And they disappeared again.
I did exactly as she/he said, and was suddenly engulfed in light.
I will be recording the stats and posting them here. If this story dose well, so will our unnamed hero.
