The world was dark at the beginning. Then there was a burst of light and everything became alive. Worlds of wonderful color and amazing coincidences. And life began that way. Darkness, and sudden light. However, nobody knew how it ended. It was a question pondered by everyone. The truth is, life ends the same way it begins. Darkness and a burst of life. All the souls experience this. Adeline Pearfly was no different. However, when she awoke in this strange new world, she remembered nothing but basic information. Her name, her family, who she was. Why she was there was a mystery. Upon waking from the burst of light she found herself in a strange and unfamiliar land. It was barren and the color of ash. Despite the sky being pitch black, she could see she was alone for the time being.
