"Stop complaining so much and just get it done..."
"Are you crying again? Twelve years old and you cry like a little girl!"
The sound of mostly what stuck with him throughout the years as his father struck him.
"I wont have the this families name and legacy be soiled by a fuck up. Get your shit together."
There was a silence as Alpheus stared out of his office window out into the city
"Sir, are you alright?"
His assistant asked again. It took a moment for him to even notice the young man "Yes, what is it?"
The young man shook it off. A real fear in his eyes as he knew if he pried he might lose his job. "The board needed you to sign off on a few things before friday... And it's friday sir"
"Alright, just leave them on my desk. I'll hand them back to you before the end of the work day"
That was all I could remember. The rest was a complete blur. His family, his families legacy. All of it was gone in the blink of an eye. When he awoke he was freezing cold. The sound of waves crashing behind him. "Where the..?" he said aloud. It took a moment before his eyes had finally adjusted and he saw him. The man looked just like him in every way "You'll have to forgive the appearance. But you are the only template I have to work with for the time being as you are the first arrival here."
"Where the hell is here?" Alpheus demanded. But the man seemed to ignore him and only continued his message, as if it were pre-recorded.
"You will be here for a very long time. Perhaps the rest of your life. This is my ark. The things you did in your life, the leadership you displayed, I want you to utelise that to help me build this ark into something amazing."
Alpheus kicked a rock and watched it soar through the illusion before him. "A hologram. Figures..."
"You will hear of other arks like this one. Arks where such things as mass murder and mass destruction are all that serves to amuse my peers. I however want to see something different. I want to see a different side of humanity. Show it to me."
The hologram vanished and so it began.
((This will serve as the introduction to my character and his arrival on the island. Different stories will be told in strange orders. Alot of it will be a very first person approach. However occasionally I may tell them in story form, but they wont be journals at that point, nor will they be wrote down ICly kindof like these journals will be. They'll basically just serve as small stories for you guys to learn about the islands lore a bit :).))
