FYI: I am not fluent in English, I’m trying to be at least. Sorry for the potentials mistakes. Feel free to correct me in the comment section.
You know the saying : searching for a needle on a haystack?
Well, I am the needle, and the haystack is hundred and hundred of miles of snow, and I doubt someone will ever try to look for me, ever. They’re absolutely nothing except a gigantic blanket of thick white powder.
See, I’m an explorator, this isn’t my first time being all by myself, far, far away from civilisation.
But how the heck did I landed here you might ask.
Have you ever heard about the Dyatlov Pass mysterious incident?
If not, here the big lines for you : a bunch of experimented explorators take upon themselves to explore a deep, snowy and, of course, deserted area of the Oural in Russia in 1959.
Those guys never came back. When authorities finally decide to go search for them, they found a ripped tent, bloods, naked dead explorators, some badly injured, one near a tree with shredded feet, he probably tried to climb a pine tree, and the others are ether dead or missing.
They’ve investigated the area and they can’t explain what happened. A wild animal attack? No trace of bites nor lacerations. Lost? No! Like I said, those guys where experimented.
One of them going haywire? Probably.
Why naked? See, when you’re in serious hypothermia, something happens in your brain that make you loose your mind and confuse the coldness with hotness. And, in your tormented mind, you strip yourself from all of your clothes to try to cool yourself down. And you die. I’ve heard from survivors that hypothermia wasn’t the worse way to go. Once you lose your mind, the departing is painless. And, you know, the snow and the cold weather keep your body intact. So if you die in that way one day, your loved one will found your body preserved (if the snow hasn’t melted because wild animals and Mother Nature will feast on your body) and know that you departure was relatively peaceful.
Nah! Don’t thank me! I see the positive side of things whenever I can!
But wait, let’s go back to the dead explorators. What about this guy, found with atrocious injuries?
Well, this is not a normal thing. Did one of his comrade did this? Did he do that to himself ? Your guess is as good as mine.
During the investigation, some people living near the area said they saw a green light, a big one, flashing in the area where those poor dudes were supposed to be.
This wasn’t the first time they saw this flashing green light over there. And strange tales have been plaguing the area about what was behind this beam of light.
Military experiences? It’s Russia after all. they need to test their future death weapons somewhere! Every country as their own little testing ground for their weapons of mass destruction tries.
Those strange phenomena were occurring since a while back, from ways before the creation of weapons of mass destruction.
Those creepy tales where the reasons that this area was never explored.
What are those tales about? Strange creatures, strange noise… and like everything humanity can explain rationally, we blamed extraterrestrials beings.
And your truly narrator, respected mountain climber, explorator and all that jazz got caught in some stupid project.
Which was ; let’s try to understand once and for all the reasons of the death of these explorators.
We have gone, myself and five other adventurers, to fulfil this mission, sponsored by a big energy drink company, to solve these mystery.
At the beginning, all was fine. This isn’t mountain climbing. Just walking in deep snow for miles to a designated area, wich we reached.
While prepping for the night, we’ve heard this deep humming sound. It was resonating in our body.
And then the green light.
Screams. Of terror? Surprise? Excitment?
Well maybe, I remember swearing profusely until… I only remember being surrounded by green, a warm feeling and… nothing.
Until I woke up here, in the middle of nowhere. I have no clues about what happened to me or my pals nor where I am.
As I wrote those lines, I’m feeling very, very warm.
Too much warm !
I’ll take my cloths off, and go back to writing after cooling down.
I feel at peace.
