Chapter 1 Chapter 1: The Man Named Freed
In the dead of the night, on an old broken down suspension bridge, a malnourished man staggered himself forward into a darkened city. Guided only by the fading light of torches, he moved forward with nothing but the raggedy clothes on his back; a long-sleeved shirt which original white color could only be guessed and jeans that had survived many harsh environments. Growing slower with each barefoot step he took, the man nearly resulted to crawling before the ravishing growl of his stomach did him in. He fell to ground weak from hunger, miles away from any assistance. Using the small amount of strength that remained in him, he was able to glimpse up at the flickering lights that had been guiding him towards the blacked out city, only visible by the full moon’s light.
