I was born in a small town called Millford in Ireland. My mother was a nurse from Denmark, and my father was some kind of a soldier in Ireland.
When i turned 1 my mother decided that it was best that we moved back to Denmark. My father didn't agree - As he wanted to stay in Ireland with his family and everything that he had fought for.
My mother understood his decision, and took me back to Denmark. My mother got her old job back at a private clinic. She had long hours and meanwhile i was taken care of by the kindergarden and babysitters when she had to work overtime.
My mother stayed in contact with my father, they still loved each other incredibly much, as my mother stayed single, and so did my father.
It was finally my 16th birthday, and i was excited. My mother promised me that i could go back to Ireland to visit my father when i turned 16. So she helped me book the plane ticket and i was on my way.
When i arrived at the Airport, my father was waiting for me, he seemed kinda twitcy when i saw him, i didn't think much of it, i was just excited to see him.
On the way home, we talked alot about me, he didn't really say much about himself. We arrived at his house in Millford and i wanted to see my room!
A couple of weeks passed by, and it was time for me to go back to Denmark, which i really didn't want to. So i begged my father and my mother if i could come and live with my father, i always have loved the Irish culture and everything that came with it. I wanted to stay close to the family i had left over here.
After hours of intense negotiations, they finally let me move.
I was holding my girlfriend, that i had met 2 years prior, she was a beautiful angel.
She looked at me with her cutting blue eyes, and said to me "Thomas, i would really like to visit a place called Chernarus"
I looked back at her and and responded with, i don't know that place darling, and why do you wanna go there?
Apparently it's was a place with amazing natural life, beautiful and you would see things that you rarely got to see here.
I was convinced, and we looked up the plane tickets online, they werren't that expensive, so we thought that we would invite my father to come.
Two weeks prior, my father had given me a family ring, i loved it.
My father accepted the invation, to join us at our vacation.
We had a fun trip going over there, we were all sitting next to each other in the plane, and my dad would tell us stories about Ireland, and some of his bad dad jokes.
When the plane landed, and we stepped out, it was beautiful sight, and the fresh air was fantastic to breathe in.
We rented a car and started our journey into inner Chernarus.
We woke up one morning in our hotel, we looked outside and the sky was filled with something, we all looked at each other in confusion - We then hear something banging on the door outside, even more confused with the situation, my girlfriend wen't out to open the door, she looked though the peeping hole, and she spotted a man with deep wounds on his face, and tattered clothing.
She thought that the man was in dire need, and as soon as she opened the door - The man knocked her down and bit her in her throat - there was blood everywhere.
I was freaked out, i lost the love of my life - My father acted fast, he took the lamp and bashed the man over the head with it - it was too late. My girlfriend had died.
As soon as my father got up, four men ran in from the street, they were hurt just as badly as the last man, they all jumped on him and started to scratch and bite him. My father yelled to me that i should run as fast as possible, and not look back - before his last breath, he told me to stay strong and stay true to the O'Connor blood.
With tears running down my cheeks, i yelled that i love them and i disapeared into the forest.
