I was always hiding in the shadows, but under nightfall, all five of us would go out to a hiding area and think of ways to defeat F.E.A.R. I was in a alleyway and watching for them. I heard a crash and looked around. Behind me, I saw a young girl, about 14, and she was dirt covered and grimy. "Hey..." I calmly said. She gasped and looked at me and was about to run. "Wait. I'm not F.E.A.R..... Please, come out." She was weary but soon walked to me. I knelt down to her. "What are you doing out here? You should be home and inside with your parents." "M-my parents are dead. F.E.A.R. killed them." I was somewhat surprised. "What is your name sweetheart?" "E-eve." "Do you have a last name Eve?" "I dont know it. I-I've been in hiding for 3 years, my parents died 8 years ago, and I was living with my Aunt. Until she died of disease those 3 years ago. So now I have been living in different houses that will open up to me, but lately I haven't been able to find one that will take a dingy little thing like me. They have fed me, but could not house me. I have stayed in sheds and barns among livestock." "I'm so sorry Eve.... If you want, you can come with me and stay with some of my friends." "B-but I don't even know your name." "My name, has been forgotten and lost.... I am the prophet.. I fight against F.E.A.R. because I have had people that I was extremely close to, be taken, or killed in front of me by them..... Please Eve, come with me...." I held out my hand, and she wearily took it.
I didn't know this man, but I knew that he would be able to help me. In more ways than one..... My health, a home,.... and revenge on F.E.A.R.... From this day on, my life would change dramatically......
The Prophet led me to an area and through what seemed to be a dump or a place for old or crashed cars, at least they looked like what I thought a car is. We haven't had them in years because we must hide in the shadows.
I had met all of the men the Prophet told me about. I had bathed and eaten and then Prophet made me a place to sleep and stay with them. I went to sleep and prepared myself for tomorrow because I was told tomorrow was my training day.
I woke up and the Prophet, Destroyer and Mourner were sitting by a fire. "Ah you're awake... Eat up and we can go on to training." "Wait." The Deviant came out of a place. "She needs to be marked so she will be like one of us." He grabbed black paint and made marks along my face and arms. "Now you're ready.... Go on ahead and eat so you can train."
After I had eaten, he led me out into the desert and taught me how to use my weapons. "This is pretty much all the basic training you will need. The rest is all complicated things for the others and I to do. But maybe we can teach you someday when you are sure as hell ready." He reached from behind him and grabbed something.
"Here." He placed a black mask on my face. "I swear these words are true..... I believe in you..... You're now of the Legion of The Black..... From now on you're Eve Black....." I adjusted it and nodded... "We are all the Legion.... And any of those who must hide but who choose to rebel, will be of the Legion...."
From this day on, my life would change dramatically......
