The Journey Begins


It was a brisk afternoon. A brisk, cold, and miserable afternoon to be exact. The little sunshine that did peek out from behind the clouds was overshadowed by a bitter breeze that would cut your skin in razor-sharp microscopic ways, unseen to the untrained eye, but registered nonetheless in the highly functional computer system we call a brain. I had packed my bags and was finally heading back to where I should have enrolled when I first awoke here on Earth: Hero(Earth) Academy.

Right now, you’re probably trying to figure out if this is a real story, about a real person, and I assure you that assumption is correct. However I must warn you, I cannot write with conventional labels as a registered student at Hero Academy, nor can I associate with this current Earthling system outside of ventures off campus. Oh, and by “awoke I do mean when I first awoke, or became conscious of my standing, position, and duty as a humanoid superhero candidate on this planet.

Before I lose you, I must introduce myself. My name is James, but my Hero Academy code name is BlackRhiino. I do live a very real life here on Earth, in the United States, and have very real interactions with very real people in my city of residence. I received my code name from the Source of information at Hero Academy. I suspect it has something to do with my status as an African-american male, I’m vegan, and my spirit animal is also that of an African black rhino. Yes, the gallery is me, in different chapters of my previous existence as a human on this planet.

If you’re still reading, thank you. As I send these letters from Hero Academy, I hope to share some of Earth’s best secrets in human interaction, brain function, achieving your higher self, and other courses of study from the Academy. Look for the information on a weekly basis. I will be telling you the stories of my quests, given to me by the Academy, and friends that I meet along my journey. My quests will give me the experiences I need to reach my highest form, and when I can, I will share with you those experiences as well.

Due to the strenuous nature of the course workload and lofty experience goals(up to 300,000 experience points for Level 20 Hero), students at the Academy are given extreme warnings about contact with the outside world. Having failed out of the Academy once before, I plan to only send these letters out to this site once a week, as I was told this was my last chance to pass the trials. If I pass the trials, I get granted whatever wish I desire, along with whatever superhero power I want.

Until next week.


p.s. The Source at the Academy states that 1 in every 10 people score the weekly experience points necessary to reach Level 20 hero when in the outside world. Enrolled in the Academy, the process can take anywhere from three to ten years for varying powers to manifest.
