IC: I opened my eyes, and was temporarily blinded by the sun's light shinning in through a broken window. I was forced to slam them shut and get up slowly. I slowly reopened them to see the room I was in. It was a mess, the light fixture in the ceiling was broken and there were rather large holes in the walls. Broken glass surrounded the window. 'Where am I?...Who am I!?' These where question I couldn't awnser, I tried to remember but I couldn't. It actually hurt to try. It only took me another moment to notice I was naked. Thank god no one was around to look at me. I walked over to the window careful not to step on the glass that littered the floor. Looking outside I saw a ruined city. It looked familiar but different at the same time. There were buildings lining the streets, from high skyscrappers to small apartment buildings. All of them were either half destroyed, had chunks missing, or had small fires on several floors. Rubble littered the street as well as something shiny that I couldn't quite identify from as high up as I was.
I walked over to the only door in the room, I turned the rusty knob and pushed the door open. Behind the door was another room, this one however had crates piled up on one side of the room. I walked over to the crates and removed the top off one. Inside was clothes, they were heavy and had camoflauged patterns on them. They were colored grey and black, I quickly put them on. As I took a vest out of the crate I saw a helmet underneath it. After putting on the vest I put on the helmet as well. It had a monicle on the left side that went over my eye. When I secured the chinstrap the monicle turned on and lit up into a bright green. Numbers scrolled down the small screen for a few moments then they vanished. A message scrolled down the screen and I read it carefully.

'This can't be good.' I heard a creak behind me. Somehow I turned around and pulled my pistol out of its holster on my right thigh. Both of my hands held the pistol aimed directly at two men in black uniforms with machineguns. Both had dark faceplates covering their faces from view. The monicle Identified their weapons as MP5 submachine guns.
"There he is! Kill him!" One said. But before they could get their guns on me I slipped the safety off and sent three rounds at them. The first round hit the closest man in the chest knocking the wind out of him and the seccond round hit him again in the chest. This time it pierced his body armor and cut through his heart dooming him to death within a few moments. The third round tore through the other man's jugular. He clutched his throat in a futile attempt to stop the blood gushing out of the wound. Both moved a bit on the ground before giving in and going stiff.
'How did I...' It was all reactions, I knew what I had to do and I did it. How I knew was beyond me but I knew. Shaking the feeling off I walked over to the two corpses and took one MP5 off the first soldier and the clip out of the seccond soldier's weapon. I also took the 9mm Bereta pistol from one and took all the ammo they had on them. Both weapons had flashlights built into them under the barrels. I put the Bereta in my left sidearm holster, and held the MP5 in my hands. The ammo counter was set at, 30/120. I switched the saftey to full automatic mode as I decended the stairs. When I reached the bottom of the stairs and went through the door I enterred a lobby. A receptionists desk was against the wall next to the doorway, glass doors were infront of the desk. The glass was on the ground, I walked over the glass into the street with my MP5 in a ready position. I had a thousand questions whirrling around in my head but I could awnser none so it was pointless to try. The only thing I could do now was search for some kind of clue as to what I'm doing here and what Im here to do...
