Naomi woke up in a middle of a forest, she had no idea how she had gotten there. When she got up she also noticed she was hurt, but did not remember what had happened, her head throbbing her body ached all over. But she did not remember! Slowly the young girl stood up though soon felt dizzy and woozy. She then leaned on a tree as she tried to remember what had happened.. But her mind was a plank. " What is happening to me.." She said weakly. Then with just pure will power alone the young teen started to walk. She knew she could not stay here she had to find someone. As she walked though fear started to set in, she could not remember anything! Her family, friends.. Her life nothing, she was truly alone..
Only thing she could remember was her name.. Though only her first name.. Naomi.. But at least it was something. Soon the young girl came to a town though before she could get to it she collapsed, She was weaker then she had first thought and her vision started to blur. " Someone! Please... He...Help...' Naomi was able to say before fainting.
A old man looked at his research, it had taken him many years but he had done it! He had learned how to open the door to the other world! Now he just had to use the alchemy that many would see as taboo.. He then drew the alchemy circle. He then placed a crying baby he had kidnapped. Baby's links to the door where still strong, he could use that to call the door and hopefully nothing would happen to him. As for the baby he did not care what happened to it. As long has his plan worked nothing else mattered! He then activated the circle. At first everything was going well the door of truth had appeared but then he heard a voice and he did not like what it had to say. soon the man and the baby where sucked in.
Mean while in the other world teenage girl was minding her own business was walking home from school, she stretched her arms a bit with a smile on her face. " Another school day done. And another day closer to summer! " she said rather happily. She did like school but she also like the freedom summer gave. But the girl was not going to make it home. Suddenly it seemed like time froze around her, startled Cora stopped and looked around. Her heart started to beat faster as fear started to set in.
"H-hey whats going on?" Cora said as she looked around, then it appeared the door of truth, Cora stared at it taking a few steps back. "A door? what??" Cora said, really not wanting to know where the door lead. Soon it opened but at first all she saw was darkness, but then within that darkness a eye opened. Cora's eyes grew wide as she screamed and started to run, something about that door was not right she had to get away! But she did not get very far.
long black tentacles shot from the door and wrapped around Cora's arms and legs and waist. Cora gasped as she then started to fight with all she had."Nononononono! Lemme go!!"" Cora cried out as she struggled as she started to get pulled back, Cora screamed and fought as hard as she could as she resisted the best she could of the pull of the door. But it was all in vain and she was pulled in, and for a moment all was black.
After a moment Cora found her self what would best be explained as a white void, she saw nothing and heard nothing besides the door that she had been forced through. "What?" Cora asked as she stared at the white void around her. Where was she and why was she here?? She then turned around and saw the door. Cora then started to pound on it. "Open up! Let me go back! Please!" Cora cried as tears of fear started to run down her checks. But the door remanded close, "Well hello there!" said a voice. Cora quickly turned to see what looked like a person but it was more of a thing and this thing was just as white as the void around her, she could only see it thanks to a black outline around its body.
Cora stared at the talking thing, she wanted to say something but no words would come out of her throat. She just stood there frozen with fear, " Speechless I see! Well listen up, you have been summoned by a foolish Alchemist. He is now in your world and you are going to his. Part of equivalent exchange. don't try to understand as you will forget about this anyway. Time for you to go now." Said the thing, and before Cora could say anything she was sucked into the door once more though this time knowledge started to pour into her mind, though as this happened she lost the memories she had of her home, her life everything she had known gone. Then everything went black.
Cora then slowly opened her eyes, her vision was blurry she then sat up and rubbed her eyes. Once her vision was clear she looked around and saw she was in a house but she had no memory on how she got here. She saw some odd drawing on the floor, though for what ever reason she knew what it was. a transmutation circle what it was for though she had no idea.. Cora then blinked, How did she know what it was? As she tried to remember she saw flashes of memories came but they hurt. Cora held her head as she winced.
" Whats going on.. Whats happening to me?" Cora asked as she then got up. There seemed to be no one here, was she really alone here? "Hello anyone here?" Cora called out but all she got was silence in return. Cora then got the courage to start looking around. She looked in every room in the house, there where not many as the house was small. She found no one and no clues to who lived here. She then went back to the main room and stared at the door the lead to the outside.
Cora was a bit hesitant, she had no idea what she was going to find out there. But she could not stay here ether. Cora then walked over to the door going to open it just to see it was locked, Cora frowned but then saw the latch and unlatched it. She then slowly opened the door slowly and opened it enough just to see out side. It looked like she was in some sort of town. Good at least she was not in the middle of no where. Cora then poked her head out to make sure no one was around, it would suck if someone saw her coming out and asked why she was there.. She had no answer..
Cora then walked through the door and quickly started to walk down the sand covered street. First thing she needed to do was find out the name of this town. She would feel better knowing where she was at least. After walking around a bit Cora was able to find someone, as she walked up to him she asked. " Excuse me! Can you tell me the name of this town? " She asked. The man smiled and nodded, "This is lior young lady. Are you a traveler?" He asked. "Y-yeah I just got here and did not know the name. Thanks so much." Cora said as she then left the man.
Ok so she was in lior, but what was she gonna do now? She has no money and she is a stranger here.. "Perhaps if I wonder around I may find someone who knows me.." Cora muttered to herself. Having no idea where she came from or even if this place was her home it was her best shot. After wondering around a bit Cora came to what looked like a outside bar or restaurant. Nothing really stood out about it besides two people she saw there. A short blonde boy with a red jacket and a guy wearing armor. Just as she was about to leave the big guy in the armor bumped a radio sending it crashing to the ground.It was nothing really so she started to go on her way though stopped when the blonde boy started to do something.
Cora then watched in amazement as the boy used some sort of power to to fix the radio, she then moved closer along with the crowed. Soon after the channel the radio was on came to life. Music started to play soon followed by a voice of a man, Cora looked around and saw everyone around her start to prey. Only her and the two other boys did not.
Later that day there was a gathering at in front of a church, a man called Carmelo. Just listening to others Cora knew who he was and what he could do. Cora watched as a young girl brought a dead bird to him and he brought it back to life and it flew off. As amazing as that seemed something in Cora's gut told her that was not right. But everyone in the town was eating it up. Though soon her eyes feel on the two boys from earlier and they seemed to think something was off as well.
After that Cora decided to follow the two, perhaps they where to look into this guy. Cora knew this was none of her business but it was better then wondering around doing nothing. After a while Cora's efforts paid off, soon there was a confrontation in the church with this Carmelo. And It was a woman named Rose that lead the boys into this trap and a battle started.
Though the battle started to down hill and it seemed the two boys where going to lose. Cora had no came over her but she rushed in and as if it has been a life long habit she clapped her hands together making beams shoot out of the ground hitting the monsters the man Carmelo had made. "What!?" Carmelo said in shock, The two other boys where just as shocked. But Cora did not kill the monsters and they attacked again and the Blonde boy held up his arm.
Cora winced thinking the boy was going to be badly hurt but the lion monster did not seem to hurt him at all. Ed then knocked the beast off and tore off the coat he was wearing to show a metal arm. Cora looked at it in shock, how was something like that possible? " See rose this is what happens when you play god!" Ed shouted. Carmelo laughed, " So you commentated the ultimate taboo! Human transmutation Not even I can do something like that I would end uo just like you!" He said, Cora reminded silent as she had no idea what they where talking about.
But soon back up for Carmelo came, Cora turned when she heard them and was not sure if they could take them all on but it seemed Ed had a idea. " Come on this way!" Ed shouted, Cora nodded and followed though quickly noticed they where headed to a dead end. Carmelo laughed, " Your headed to a dead end!" He said. Ed just smirked, " If there is no door make your own!" Ed said as he clapped his hands and transformed a door and the three of them went through.
When it was clear they had lost them Ed came to a stop and looked at his brother. " Al, I have a idea I will make a duplicate of you as a decoy And you I need you to come with me. We are going to allow ourselves to be caught while Al sets up a trap." Ed said as he went on to explain his plan. Both Cora and Al nodded as Al took off to his part in the plan and Ed made a duplicate. Cora then followed Ed back into the streets of lior. Cora did not like the idea of getting caught but if it helped to show the people of lior what kind of person Carmelo really is it was going to be worth it.
It did not take very long soon Carmelo voice rang out saying a boy with blonde hair, a boy wearing armor and a girl with red hair had just tried to kill him. It did not take long for them to be surrounded. Cora gulped a little taking a few steps back, she really hoped they would not mob them.. But thankfully all they did not attack, but suddenly statutes of the sun god came to life and surrounded them. Then they attacked Al knocking him out. "Al!"" Ed cried out only to be whacked on the back of the head. Cora reached out her hand, "No!" she said to also to be only whacked on the back of the head by a sun god statute and once again all went black.
Cora then slowly woke up and the pain of being whacked started to rush in, Cora groaned and shook her head. "That was a bit much... Hitting us with a statute.." Cora grumbled as her vision cleared and she saw she was in some sort of a dungeon and her hands where shackled over her head as she was sitting on the cold floor. " Glad to see you'er awake, he did clock us pretty good huh.." Ed said. Cora looked at him and glad they where put in the same cell. " So we just sit here till Al is ready and when Carmelo opens his big mouth?" Cora asked. " Pretty much I hope he works fast. But seeing as we have some time to kill... I have some questions.." Ed said as he looked at Cora.
Cora met Ed's eyes when he said he had questions, of course he would.. Some stranger comeing out of nowhere to help and to add to that he did not know her name or where she came from. Sadly Cora did not know if she had the answers. No she knew she didn't right now she did not even her own name.. She really hoped that would come back to her soon..
When Cora did not say anything Ed studied her a bit before asking his first question. " I would like to know your name." He said. Cora sighed and looked down at the floor. "I.. I don't remember.." Cora said as she then tightly closed her eyes. Ed blinked in shock, Cora then went on to explain how she woke up in a strange house and the events that lead up to this. Ed listened having a nod here and there.
" I see so you woke up in a house with no memory with a transmutation circle.. Hmm Hey when this is over Al and I will help you out. You did help us after all" He said with a smile. For the first time since being here Cora felt some hope. Though she did not tell Ed everything. She had started to remember a strange door and a white room. And this faceless thing. But she did not want Ed to think she was crazy so she said nothing about that.
Ed then looked at the door, "Someone is coming." He said. Cora looked at the door and hoped it was not Carmelo. When the door opened relief flooded through her. It was that Rose girl and she had some food. She seemed to glare at Ed though. The two of them exchanged words and Rose left food for the both of them before she left. She sure had a lot of faith that Carmelo could bring her dead boyfriend back to life.. Cora could tell Rose is a good hearted person but knew she was being mislead. Even though she had no memories Cora knew the dead could never be brought back.
Cora then stared at her food wonder how in the world was she gonna eat it when her hands where locked up.. Guess Rose forgot about that detail. Oh well she was not all that hungry anyway. And soon Cora heard digging sounds, she knew it was Al he was stepping up the trap. "I hope this idea oh yours works." Cora said with a sigh as Al then finished then left. Some time passed and then the person Cora did not want to see walked in.
Cora could not help but shoot a glare at the so called holy man. She was just so angry that he was tricking everyone. But if Ed's idea worked all that would soon come to a end.
