This morning I was getting so bored at the Temple that I decided to take a chance and step outside of the Temple grounds. Bad idea. As soon as I exited the outer gate, I heard the familiar sounds of that smoke thing surrounding me, and then this man in his 60's stepped out of the bushes and introduced himself as Christian, and he told me that he speaks on Jacob's behalf. I wasn't sure whether or not to believe him at first, but he told me that if I didn't walk with him, the black smoke would kill me, and he wouldn't be able to stop it, so I didn't really have much of a choice. I asked this man where he was taking me, and all he said was that he wanted to show me my purpose on this island. So I'm following him right now through the jungle, and I have no idea if I'm going to like this or not!
Well... I have no idea what I just got myself into. "Christian" led me through a bamboo forest and brought me to a river where there's a small cave with a bright glowing light coming from inside, and he told me that his job for the last several years has been to basically make sure the light never goes out, and that Jacob wants me to take over that job now! I was completely dumbfounded and unsure as to whether I'm really the right person for the job, but he insisted that Jacob knew what he was doing when he chose me, and that it's the only way to keep everyone on the Island alive. So I reluctantly agreed to it, and then Christian handed me a cup, filled it with water from the river and told me to drink it, and I did. Then Christian touched my shoulder and said, "Now you're like me." I'm not sure exactly what that meant. I mean, I don't feel any different... er... wait...
Woah... oh my gosh!! I just discovered that I can turn my whole body into black smoke at will!! I can actually fly through the air across the Island faster than any human can run! And I can rip trees out of the ground! This is so cool! I feel totally invincible!! I should have no trouble protecting the Island now!
