In Britain there where once a ship whom was going to go out in the huge see, to search for new land and new places. They had everything for the travel and enough people to help. Everything seemed normal. The women, children and the old waved goodbye to the young men, seen as heroes and would surely come back someday from their long journey with new stories to tell and stuff to give. Out in the huge water the men worked and the captain looked around to view until one would scream. "Land ahoy!" An Island would be seen with a small vulcano, with their curiousity they set ashore to this island. It was really an adventure when the crew and the captain would go further into this island and search for something, anything and so they did. A small cave by the vulcano had been made and inside it was nothing but darkness, but the captain would get into this cave for he could sense that there was something in there, that wanted to be found. When it was time they walked into this cave, but traps were waiting them and two or three people died, yet the captain wouldn't concede. In the cave all they found was a glimming stone, pretty huge and heavy it was. Yet its light shone beautiful and catched their eyes upon it. They took the stone with them to the ship, not knowing of it's past and let it rest with the captain. After some days the captains haven't been outside from the ship at all, while the crew where searching through the island. One man named Andrew went to see after the captain together with two others in the crew and went down to deck but what they didn't count was to see the captain, all dried out, looking at the shining stone in his hand whom have grown even larger. His white dry eyes looked at the white stone still shining for him and wouldn't hear his crew calling for him and then Andrew had enough, he took the stone from the captain whom would loose his control, screaming at him and taking the stone back, even hitting him with the stone in order to let Andrew go of it while the others, shocked, stared at him. The two witnessing what happened with Andrew and the captain, they suggested to take the stone by force if they where more and so they did. As many could they went down to the captain and started their plan while the captain blindly looked at the stone. The men took the stone from him by force and almost jumped over the captain in order to stop him as he could scream like a kid whom had lost his favorite toy. The men who took the stone was now outside, wondering why he've been so weird while some suggested to throw the stone away but the one holding it wouldn't let go of the stone as it would grew larger than when they found it. A huge fith where going on and more and more men wanted the stones light until everyone was obsessed with it, no one wanted to let it go. Trying to kill each other in order to get it, shooting, slashing with swords, hitting with their hands while the stone's light grew. The men where blind for the storm that was on it's way towards them as more and more died on the ship and more got hurt. After all their fighting, it only ended up to their own death as the water devoured the ship and the stone with it. Years later in britain people would see a ship far away that would get closer with dead men, rotting, skeleton like, screaming for their shining stone. "Where is our stone?! It's light, we need it!" The dead men would yell and then disappear. Though, the people could nothing do, for the stone was now gone somewhere in the deep sea together with a sunken ship. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- YEAR 2703, ATLANTICA CITY Atlantica (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Atlantica (open) Atlantica (close) Atlantica City!

Andrew (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Andrew (open) Andrew (close) He turned of the tv and sighed while his mother cooked some breakfast. -"Yeah, right." He said to himself as his mother wondered what he meant. -"Atlantica City! New possibilities and a new future! That's bullshit!" Andrew said as his mother sighed and turned around. -"Andrew, don't talk like that at home! And NOT when your mother is around, I can't stand talk like that! And what is so wrong with Atlantica, anyway?" She asked and Andrew turned around from his comfy seat on the sofa. -"Are you kidding me, mom? Have you even been outside this place? The hobos are everywhere, our neighbours are crazy and the older ones are very weird, and to not talk about how this place is build up. The appartment is about to fall off and it stinks outside, I've to cover my mouth and nose everytime I've to go to school!" He said and turned back to watch the tv. His mother sighed. -"Well, I'm sorry I ain't rich but atleast you've a roof over your head! What if you haven't had an appartment, then your wound from the fire would've gotten even worse than it is!" She screamed and Andrew took his hand on his left eye and then sighed, got up from the sofa and walked to the door and took his bag. -"Andrew, what about breakfast!?" Mother screamed after him. -"I don't want any!" He answered and closed the door. -"Andrew, Andrew!" She then sighed and watched Olivia come inside. -"Did brother and mama fight again?" She asked and mother smiled painfully. -"Don't worry, hun. Your brother is just tired and having a bad day. Now let's eat breakfast." Andrew walked through the city and looked around the city, the hobos sat down, begging for money and no one made eye contact with each others, the place was filthy and dirty compared to where the rich lives. He was now on his way to school to meet up with his friends, atleast the school was better than his own home, although the teachers can be very strict and boring. -"Hello fire boy!" One hobo said whom is called Ectar, Ectar and Andrew where more closer to each others and why Ectar called him fire boy is because of his scar from the fire and that he is a miracle to havae survived such a huge incident. -"Going to school I see." Ectar said and Andrew smiled. -"Still no money I see?" He said and Ectar laughed. -"I'm still better then those rich bastards, also. Don't tell anyone but I've been borrowing stuff from the other in our gang and here ya go." He said and threw something at him, Andrew catched it. -"What is this?" He asked. -"It's an old necklace, donnow what it's for but I thought I had to give you something since it's your birthday." He said and laughed. -"Thanks Ectar." Andrew said and put on the odd necklace, it was golden, no more brown-ich colored and had an very odd shape, some would probably call it steampunk style if not pirate style-ish. It seemed very old though. -"Well, go to school with ya and don't tell your ma' that I've given you your birthday present this early." He said and Andrew went off. -"I will! Bye! And take care!" -"So do you, fire boy!!"
