Introduction

ImageClose your eyes for a moment and imagine yourself standing in a sandy beach without shoes, and the salty yet fresh air is blowing across your face as you feels the grains of sand between your toes. Imagine the sounds of seagulls flying overhead. Imagine staring out at the sea, as the waves crash against one another. Can you imagine a forest now? Imagine the nature sounds, such as birds, wolves, the sound of the breeze rustling through the trees, imagine the distant sound of crickets during the night and the echoing of the hoots from nearby owls. Can you imagine a life without such luxuries? Can you imagine a life without the brightness and warmth from the sun overhead? Can you imagine a life without the worry of time, worrying if its too early to make noise, or too late for sugary sweets and alcoholic drinks?

Well, there are human beings that can tell you that they don't know any different. There is a whole economy, an entire society that live beneath the flower beds of the Shire, a large garden that seemed to spread and grow into a meadow and into a jungle of flowers surrounding one single well next to an abandoned green house.

This has been a life for a few decades, perhaps a few centuries though the meaning of time was long lost. It started out when a town heard rumors of a horde of dark creatures were to take over the neighbor hood and destroy every living thing, so they built tunnels downward, beneath the ground for safety. It was likable, an escape from the worries that the outside world would push these individuals to endure. It wasn't long before that became the next life, and the life after that. Many generations of ages built homes beneath the ground, far under that the rest of the outside world was forgotten.

Old fashioned times grew into modern times, and no one questioned the meaning of life (Or at least, not out loud). Now, I know that this raises questions... what about food, water, clothes, the necessities. This city had invented what they called Scouts, people who had created a passageway to venture out of the underground city, steal and find ways of survival such as food, water and ect. The others never questioned it, for this was a life they only knew. The Outside was just a dangerous place, a dark story that frightened young ones to not venture the Tunnels, for they would be snatched and made for dinner. The Officials were that of a mayor, of leaders, the Wise men who keep peace and harmony together.

However, curious minds lead to questions. What else was there? There was no sunlight, no echoing sounds of cars or neighborhood dogs. Many people have discussed entering the tunnels, few actually did.

One by one they gained the courage to venture, finding a way up a well, through a flowerbed which grew over the lid, for the well was inside the ground, not above. Water had dried out, leaving the mud moist and messy. Pale beings with tiresome eyes who've never seen the light of day, had found themselves witnessing a whole new world.

Young adults, ranging from the ages eighteen to twenty four had unknowingly started an adventure, traveling the Tunnels which had been a sacred, old and strong rule to avoid, and witnessing their first light of day, their first breath of fresh air, with no knowlege of technology, except for the simplicity, such as foods, candied goods, and beverages. Some more than others.

How would they take to the Outside? Are they for it or completely against it? Would they return back home? Would the Officials and the Scouts hunt them down and bring them back away from society? Would they get punished? Oh, it's up to us, the writers, to figure that out ourselves.

Those underground are pale skinned, somewhat fragile unless they've excersized on their own, some malnutured due to their class. The upperclass to lower class ranges are...


1.Officials
The Wise men, those with much knowledge.
The Leaders, those who control their class. Three to each class.
The Scouts, those who venture out to the real world for food, clothes, items, anything valuable, and those who punish those out of line.

2. Upper Class, those who are rich, who were born with a wealthy bloodline, those with better clothing, better homes, better lifestyle. Those who have others
work for them.

3. Middle Class, those who work for Upperclass, or those who do work hard for themselves and live a fulfilling life, those who are satisfied. Those who do not ask for more. Those who learn to be doctors, nurses, cooks, ect.

4. Lower Class, those who have nothing, hardly anything or a little more than they should. Those who are willing to do anything to live. Those who work for both Middle Class and Upper Class, those who are more daring, but more careful as well.
