Your alarm wakens you from sleep, pulling you from sweet dreams. You lean over and turn it off, trying to shake the drowsiness from your mind. But that fog of sleep won’t seem to lift, you can’t get your bearings, can’t get your focus.
And that’s when it hits you… Or doesn’t hit you.
You don’t know what your alarm was set for. You don’t know where you are. You don’t know who you are.
You sit up in a panic, desperately looking around the bedroom you woke in. Your bedroom? It has to be, right? You may not recognize anything, but surely it must be yours. You reach up to run a hand through your hair, and that’s when you see it… A tattoo on your left forearm.
You study it, knowing this must be a clue to who you are. It must be important if you were willing to permanently mark yourself. No matter how hard you think on it, though, the string of numbers means absolutely nothing to you. Then, the unthinkable happens: The number changes.
About the Story
The above scenario played out all over the world early one morning (EST, but in the middle of the night in other places), as every person suddenly found themselves without any memories, and with a countdown tattooed on their left forearm.
A special few also found a brand new symbol tattooed on the inside of their right wrist.
What does it all mean? Who were you before the reset? Why were your memories taken? What is the meaning of the strange symbol tattooed on your right wrist? Perhaps most importantly, What is the significance of the countdown tattooed on your left forearm?
And you had better find out quick, because there are only 14 days before the clock strikes 0.
