I'm writing this journal to make note of the events that lead to my permanent grounding on Chernarus. In case if you ignored my pleas to not read this book and return it, I guess it cannot be helped.
My name is Alyxis, and I'm 16 years old. I used to live back in Bulgaria with my parents. As a single child, I was usually never lacking any attention from my parents... that however doesn't mean we had a perfect life. My father often harassed me or my mother even when I was young and systematically drank alcohol... My mother would often put up with my dad, even though she wasn't particularly happy with his actions.
I've always tried to be on top of my class, both grade and effort-wise. it happened on occasions that I would receive bad grades, but that usually was because my father was abusing me or my mother. I've very rarely skipped studying unless I wasn't feeling too well, both emotionally or healthily.
Two months after my birthday, our family was invited to my aunt's home. She was also from Bulgaria, her husband was born Chernorussian, so she had moved in with him after they were married. Occasionally, they would visit us back in Bulgaria, most often during the summers. My aunt was what most people would refer to as a 'housewife', and her husband used to be a professor in linguistics, I believe. They had two daughters, both over 18 years of age, and they both had moved away from their homes, one is married and lives with her husband in Germany, while the other is still single, and I think she moved to Australia. So when we arrived, I had little to do but to take small walks occasionally around their house and enjoy the pine forests that were scattered around their small village.
One of those days I was exactly taking a longer walk, I had packed in my bag a few sandwiches and a bottle of water, along with a map, because I didn't want to get lost in a foreign country. I didn't speak their language (even though I could comprehend it a little). On the trip back, I heard loud cries, of people in great pain. I kept quiet to myself, as I panicked. Carefully going down the hill, finding my way between the pine trees, I saw what was the source of those screams. That day was the most horrible event that I've ever witnessed - people were... eating... other people. I could not explain this to myself, I've always thought zombies were a work of fiction and not... real. I couldn't even dare go down into the village. I just stood there... frozen. I couldn't move. I just stayed there, slowly curled up until the cries went silent. After an hour or two I saw how a car drove off, being chased by a group of those things. I ran back to the house where we were staying at, only to see it was covered in blood, and the remains of my parents, as well as our relatives were scattered all over the living quarters. With nearly a broken heart and with so much on my mind, I just huddled into a corner... it felt like nothing mattered anymore. I found myself at a loss of words... literally. I couldn't say anything. I would open my mouth and try to emit a sound, but nothing would come out, except for the hot air...
Ever since that, I've been alone for as much as I can remember, living up into the mountains. I managed to find a small tent in one of the abandoned houses, and on occasions I would go down to those villages, quietly and quickly, scavenging for supplies so I could continue on going... I just don't know how I'll get through the winter... I hope I find someone who's trustworthy and I can tag along with them. I hope...
//OOC: I would like to apologize to whomever will have to read my whitelisting application. Please consider this to be somewhat of an apology and it would hopefully give you a better understanding of my writing abilities. I will expand this thread and keep adding more information whenever I can, if I get whitelisted, according to the chain of events that occur after I start roleplaying on the server.
P.S: Any sort of insight or ideas how to improve this, as well as comments and opinions are quite welcome, positive OR negative. I see nothing wrong when people point out certain mistakes you make. I prefer to improve rather than be mediocre. :3
