"The train on platform one goes to Redfern, Penrith, Weston Creek then all stations to Shukumei Space Port." A friendly female voice boasted over the platform speakers as the sounds of a train echoing through the tunnels could be heard slowing down slightly and metal against metal rung through the air. The station was completely spotless, no person from the public had set foot on it except for the occational watchman and station guard.

The first train entered the station newly opened only mere hours earlier. So many people had already began populating this city already even though it had only been a few days since construction was finished and it was officially open to the public. The sleek metallic shine of the metal bulk danced around the platform walls from the tunnel lights and eventually came to a stop as the train halted. The speakers inside the train let out a soft melody and the conductor spoke.

"Bahnhofs Central, I hope you enjoyed your journey, please make way out of the train in an orderly fashion."

The doors slid open emitting a hiss as the hydraulics were depressurised and a mass crowd quickly formed on the platform, all eyes eager to catch first glance of this new city and the new life that awaited for them. Among the crowd of casually dressed people stood out a rather distinguished gentlemen gratuously overdressed compared to his scenery seemed to glide through the crowd out the train doors while the friendly plain male voice echoed quite clearly of the speakers.

"The doors are now closing, please stand clear." All the while a an alert beeping rang through the train as the doors closed fading into a single hum before cutting out and the train letting another hiss of gas as it  slowly lurched forward.

He stood in the middle of the platform and took a casual glance around him, looking back to the train in order to see his reflection and fix his suit and tie up while he removed his sunglasses from his trouser pocket and fixed his sleek brown hair before placing them carefully over his face. He straightened his coat slightly down more and patted down his chest before taking his first step into the city up the stairs onto the sidewalk.

A little away from the trainstation exit a woman stood, dressed in long flowing black robes, her hair long and black, a long necklass around her neck had a crystal and some other symbols on it. Silently she watched the crowd dispurse.

Suddenly, she broke out of her trance-like state and walked slowly towards the entrance, robes flowing behind her.


She shouted, pointing  a finger at David.

The man, regardless of the expression on his face, quite happy to be in this new city. It held more prospects for him, a better life from what he came from. A gentle breeze whisped through the air around him shaking the trees only slightly to make a constant low rustling almost like a friendly hiss. His mood was lightened even more so as he shifted his eyes to the side and noticed the suns rays shining off a nearby building, giving the dark blue tinted windows that covered it a surreal look.

He almost smiled at this scene orchestrating itself around him like he was a part of some stage show he was veiwing and wasn't aware of it, none the less, he seemed to enjoy it. He leaned against the nearby wall and looked up to the sky, showing that he was in no hurry to get where he needed to be or perhaps that he didn't need to be anywhere at all and was visiting for pleasure. His current dress stated otherwise though.

His mood was shifted dramatically though at the woman revealing herself in a far from orderly fashion. Getting up off the wall at her dramatic appearance, the air around him seemed to almost darken shown by his body language and the fact that any overly dressed man with a scowl on his face was more menacing then you could imagine until you had seen one face to face. His right hand twitched only a few slight millimetres before common sense took over and reaching into his jecket pocket wouldn't do any good for his or the city's reputation.

"Are you here to tell me that another 'Big Daddy' has moved in on new territory and doesn't want me ruining his plans with my lone gun and or rogue like attitude?" David spoke in an english accent so thick that a knife couldn't cut through it. "Or perhaps you just happened to want to move here aswell, heard that I was moving here and are too immature to admit that you just don't want to be in the same city as me?"

A small hint of a smile emerged from the corner of his mouth as he spoke in a seemingly mocking tone.

"The guides wanred me of your arrival!"

She told him, still over-dramatic as was her nature. She had no idea of what 'big daddy' he was talking about, she was relaying a message from the spirit guides, they had shown her a vision and told her to look out for the person responsible.

She swayed slightly, under the influence of the spirits.

"You will bring death and destruction upon this peaceful city. You must LEAVE!!!"

She warned him over-dramatically, pointing into the direction of the trainstation again.

The scowl on his face, due to his unpleasent welcome into the city, shifted suddenly into a more lighter mood as it became a frown with a slight hint of confusion splashed across his partially covered face. He noticed out of the corner of his eye that the building with the brilliant shimmer of light painted over it seemed to fade and become a dull shine. The sky above dimmed slightly as an unexpected cloud came between them and the veiwing range of the sun and strong but brief gust of wind and he looked up cautiously at the sudden change in weather.

"Miss, I haven't got the foggiest idea what you are on about. I have never brought any destruction on any place and I sure as hell ain't bringing death anywhere." He stepped forward, pushing her to the side gently and continued walking to wherever he was headed, ignoring her warnings of anything as they seemed downright silly.

"I have seen the future! Your arrival here has condemend this place"

She told him, even though he was now ignoring her.  What stopped her following him was the people she spotted who seemed to be right in his path.

"You should listen to the advise of the spirits"

She chided him before backing off.  The people up ahead were christian fanatics, the kind that took religion to a whole new level. They stood there, every saturday, and preached to the masses to repent for their evil ways and be saved.

She watched as he walked straight towards them, only to be confronted with one of  the men doing his 'heavenly duty' of informing the guy that..
