Chapter One

Waking from the tendrils of sleep, Armaros found himself in an odd place. The room in which he lay sprawled was massive, an architectural marvel crafted entirely in marble. It formed a fine circular dome, reminiscent of celestial constellations and grandeur. It was daunting yet alluring. Four distinctive corridors laid in opposite directions like arms of the cross, each promising its own tale.

Armaros tried to gauge his surroundings for clues about his location, or his past, but his mind was as blank as the unblemished marble walls. He was shrouded in the fog of lost memory, a knight without his armor in an enigmatic labyrinth. His past was a blurred canvas, a void clawing at him to unravel. The only two fragments he clung to were his name, Armaros, and a vivid image that constantly danced in front of his closed eyes - the picture of a girl.

Her name was Aura. He knew it as undoubtedly as his own. Her face lingered in his thoughts, becoming his beacon in the engulfing darkness. Her golden locks weaved themselves into the intricacies of his memory while her cerulean eyes twinkled like distant stars. Her smile was a sonnet he wished to comprehend. He saw her, not as a mere image but as an emotion he yearned to explore deeply.

Standing up, Armaros looked around once more deciding which corridor to take. The one ahead felt formidable, like stepping into the mouth of death. He shuddered, shying away from its oppressive aura. The corridor on his right radiated a deceptive light, promising safety yet whispering danger. Behind him, he felt sharp unseen daggers of anger and hatred tearing at his soul. Head swimming, he turned to the left, towards the sense of peaceful direction it promised.

His instincts propelled him forward, toward the left corridor. He barely crossed the threshold when iron bars crashed down, caging him from his chosen path. His heart thumped wildly in the silence, a drum echoing in the forgotten halls of the marble dome.

Armaros stared down the now blocked corridor, defiance flaring within him. He mumbled to himself, his voice a disgruntled murmur echoing amidst the hollow silence, "I will get out and find answers."

With Aura's image etched in his heart and a newfound determination surging through his veins, he took off down the corridor he had initially found oppressively dark in order to put together the pieces of his past, to find the girl and the life he no longer remembered, but knew he had once deeply cherished. Who was he? Who was Aura? Each question wrapped him in a web of deep mystery. A romance lost, awaiting rediscovery.

AI Prompts

Prompt: I woke up and looked around. I was in a massive circular room made of marble with four corridors leading in different directions. I tried to remember how I got here but then I realized I couldn't remember anything except my own name Armaros and a picture of a girl's face who had blue eyes and golden blonde hair and her smile and her name, Aura. I took a deep breath and looked at each doorway. The one in front of me felt oppressing and heavy like death. I looked at the one on my right, light but dangerous so I turned around and it felt like someone was scraping a knife made of anger and hatred down my back. I looked left and I knew it was the right way to go. I turned and ran toward the left corridor and just as I reached inside the door, iron bars dropped down blocking it. I looked in front of me down the corridor. I muttered "I will get out and find answers" and then I took off through the maze.
