First Light
-The Birth-

Far from the cosmic concerns, somewhere on Earth, a young couple is walking in a magnificent forest, hand in hand. The man was everything the human word “good” had to offer, taking care of his pregnant wife the best he could to ease her everyday life. She was more than eight months’ pregnant, and was going to have a boy.
But the bright blue sky suddenly turned grey. The warm shafts of light emanating from the sun were slowly occluded by a thick body of fog surrounding them, then a driving rain started to pound the ground, battering the tree leaves in clunky echoes.
The woman abruptly went into labour, on the very ground of this once majestic forest, now turned in a soaking and dripping hell. The terror-stricken man immediately tried to go and look for help, diving deeper through the woods, aiming to go and reach someone around… But this was to no avail. The crushing rain and the fog fiercely harassed him away, losing him through the green inferno. The woman was alone, suffering each contraction more than the one before, her screams lost between the branches.
After hours of intense pain, the baby finally came out of her womb. He was covered with blood stains, slowly washed away by the seemingly never-ending deluge, which was turning even more frantic, on the verge of ripping out the surrounding trees. The infernal storm then released a powerful blast of lightning, striking the woman dead… She was lying there, lifeless, over the cries of the newborn. A life taken, a life given. The circle has been closed.
As the storm drew to its end, an old woman walked by and found the baby in the mud, shivering from the cold ground he was lying on. Out of blistering love for the abandoned child, she took him home to heal his wounds up and raise him as her own son. After fifteen years, the boy decided to leave his substitute family to find answers to his relentless self-questioning. Why did his mother die the moment he was born? Where is his father? What is the meaning of his life? Where would fate lead him?
His life was made of loneliness, for he couldn’t fit with other people. He wasn’t weak nor was he shy, and was a very kind child to be with, although he did not feel comfortable when staying among his peers. He was looking for something more than just what human life could give, looking for salvation. Looking for something beyond humanity. Looking for something beyond everything.
