[Fan Fiction] Tom the Fighter: Chapter One

Tom the Fighter
Chapter One: The Awakening

Tom suddenly wakes up. "What the hell was that?" he says. "Was I dreaming? I can only remember the rain, the thunderstorm and someone moving in all that darkness..." He gets up and examines his surroundings. He can barely recognize them: that place doesn't seem familiar to him. Actually, nothing seems familiar to him. He can barely remember his name. Finally, a light shines upon his darkness: he notices a chest right next to the bed. He opens it, excited, but all his excitement fades away rapidly when he examines the inside of the chest: it only contains a very rusted iron dagger and an envelope. He picks everything up and then uses the dagger to break the seal of the envelope. It opens to reveal a letter, apparently addressed to him. He reads it. Basically, the letter tells him to search a "secret spot" (apparently, the person who wrote the letter didn't know he has amnesia), look for "Maddock" in a nearby village called "Aridell" and advises him to be careful. In a burst of anger, he pierces a pillow with his dagger. He notices a nearby sconce, and decides to take the torch ("No one will ever need it, and it will come in handy for me"). He decides to visit the house's backyard through a missing wall. The air is humid. He catches sight of some abandoned buildings and a broken fence. The backyard is pretty small, but he immediately notices an old, rotting wooden barrel. He looks inside and spots two torches. "A couple more will be welcome", he thinks, and picks them up. He also notices a well in the middle of the yard. He walks up to it and begins pulling a rope. The bucket rises, revealing some mold and smelly water. Shocked by this sight, he drops the rope from his hands. The bucket starts falling, and moments later he hears a loud crash as the bucket finds the well's bottom. He keeps examining the yard, when a tree stump catches his eye. It seems to be sealed, but he spots some hinges right next to the lid. As he approaches the stump, he starts to recognize the place. He feels he's been here before, but he can't remember when or how. He still can't remember how he got there. So he decides to try and open the lid, and it does! He looks inside and sees a couple potions, a pair of sandals and a short sword. Upon closer inspection (and after taking everything out of the lid) he is able to recognize everything. He deposits two Healing Elixirs and two Mana Potions inside his pocket, he puts his Leather Sandals on and decides to wield the Iron Short Sword, leaving the dagger inside another pocket. The sword feels a lot more comfortable, he almost feels it like another bone in his arm. He does a few test swings, which leave him satisfied, and decides to exit the house. After bypassing the room where he woke up and another small room particularly neglected (grass growing freely, a chair and some hay strewn about) he exits the house through the door frame (the actual door is missing). Reality soon strikes him: he woke up inside an abandoned town. Most buildings are ruined, some are burned out, others are completely abandoned. He notices some rusted swords, dented shields and destroyed bones around, suggesting this town was a battlefield some time ago. He starts inspecting this strange town, unaware that a giant red lizard is crawling towards him...
