This is the first part of my new Time Trappers story. Feel free to leave your feedback and criticism. Enjoy.
Where am I? I thought as I looked around. I couldn't for the life of me figure out where I was. Green grass, trees, a sunny sky. I'm not in Kansas anymore. Then again, I didn't even live in Kansas in the first place. Suddenly, it all turned dark.
I was awaken by the unbearable sound of an explosion. I rushed out of bed and took a look out of my window. Across the street was a burning building. I could feel the heat from where I was standing. I immediately got dressed and rushed outside. Figures. It takes an explosion to get me out of bed. I saw a man standing next to me. He looked a bit suspicious, but I'm not one to judge.
“Do you know what happened here?” I asked him.
“Yes.” He answered, then walked away.
What an odd guy. I thought
“Help!” A woman yelled.
My attention quickly turned to the woman shouting as she ran out of the burning building.
“Someone, please help! My son's still inside!”
“Where, exactly?” I asked.
She turned to me and said, “First floor. Room number 3.”
I ran with haste into the burning building. Didn't realize what I was doing until it was too late. My adrenaline was going crazy.
“Door 3, door 3, door 3.” I repeated to myself.
There were too ways I could go, left and right. I wasn't sure which way, so I just took the right way/ It is the opposite of wrong. One, two, three. I reached the partially opened door and entered. I didn't see anyone, so I checked the whole room, but still no luck. The heat was becoming too much. The smoke was filling my lungs. I needed to get out, but the window was blocked. I ran for the exit, when all of a sudden a large chunk of wood dropped on me. A sudden flash of light hit me like a train. I wasn't in the building anymore, I was... in a city. It looked familiar. This is Metropolis. I could tell by the old Daily Planet building. Something's wrong though. It looks like it was just hit by a bomb.
“Get out of here!” Someone yelled.
When I looked behind me, I saw a young blonde teenage girl. She had the symbol of Superman on her chest. She bolted to the sky, then it happened again. The flash of light. Suddenly I was outside the burning building.
The hell just happened? I wondered.
I looked for the woman who asked me for help, but she wasn't here. Everyone around me was staring at me like they just saw a ghost.
“I'm not a ghost, am I?” I asked.
“What's your name.”, the suspicious man from earlier asked me.
He began walking away and said “Follow me.”
I was very sceptical about the situation, but anything beats standing here with everything giving me those weird looks. He entered a car and opened the passenger door.
“Get in.” He said.
Again, I was sceptical, but more curious. I asked him who he was and what he wanted.
“Get in.” He repeated.
I entered the car and we drove off.
He looked at me and asked “How did you escape that building?”
Honestly, I didn't know what to say.
“Well, honestly, I don't know. One second I was in the burning building, then I was in Metropolis which looked like hurricane went through it, then I was back.”
“I see.” He said. “You are the one I've been looking for.”
“Excuse me?” I asked.
“Everything will be explained when we reach our destination.” He said.
Okay, now I got really suspicious. I was in a car with a guy I don't even know, unaware of where I'm going.
“Can you at least tell me your name?” I asked.
“You can call me Zod.” He said.
