To the average person, life goes on without much trouble. People are born, grow up, live life, and die. That is the cycle of every living creature on this earth. That's how it's supposed to be.
In the twenty-first century, scientists are working on better technologies such as how to cure cancer and other various diseases, inventors work on developing the latest machines to make our lives easier.
Magic isn't supposed to exist. For the imagination of a human it exists in entertainment such as movies, cartoons, and comic strips. But they only know one side of the coin. Magic isn't supposed to exist, so for most, it doesn't.
But it does exist.
I was born in the United States, the current year being 2056. Technologies such as desktop computers, laptop computers, land lines, and CDs are all things of the past with the industry being as advanced as it is. It's the same for most countries of the world. Life seems good, right?
People like me live separated from the rest of the world, simply for the reason that if we expose ourselves there are serious consequences that go along with it. We're looked upon as freaks and criminals, able to trigger events that have absolutely no explanation. By now many people have noticed that supernatural activities aren't caused by the supernatural, but by humans.
In 2029 after the Voo-Doo scare, over 40 countries passed laws requiring any cases involving the supernatural to be thoroughly investigated, even if it's just a case of a family hearing mysterious voices at night. If anyone is a suspect in the cases they're hauled off to somewhere unknown to be investigated. The governments fear that anyone with magic powers are a threat to nationwide security.
The average person doesn't believe magic exists. They think the Scare was all a lie and there was no proof behind it. The government on the other hand is very aware of people like me, yet make no public points about us.
Just what are they doing with the mages they find? How long will we have to keep ourselves secluded before we have a chance in the world?
This is the prologue to an upcoming fan-fiction series which'll be made into a manga once I get the storyline going. I also haven't come up with a name for it yet though. I still have a lot of thinking to do...
