A sign reads, "Welcome to the Underworld. Yes, you are in fact dead. Do not try to escape. As it will automatically send you to Hell. You will soon be sent to be judged. Do not fear. Hell and Heaven are always spent with people you have known. ^-^ Whether they're hateful or loving depends on whether you were a good lil kid.


- Your Loving Underworld Guardian."

Serenity opened her eyes and saw nothing but a large plain of white. She couldn't remember anything except for who she was and how she lived.
How did I get here? she thought I...I don't remember anything. "Wait!" she yelled aloud. "The shrine! The priests and the father! They...they were all killed by monsters!" Serenity's eyes opened wide and she teared. 'That...that must mean that I'm dead too. And, this must be...Heaven? Or is it Hell?
"IT IS NEITHER. IT IS A PLACE INBETWEEN WHAT YOU WOULD CALL HEAVEN AND HELL." a booming voice uttered, seemingly from nowhere.
"Who's there?" Serenity said. She was scared, but inside she could feel a warm feeling of comfort.
"I AM THE GOD YOU HAVE BEEN WORSHIPING ALL THIS TIME. I AM THE EMBODIMENT OF THE FOREST AND NATURE. AND, I HAVE CHOSEN YOU, MY CHILD, FOR A VERY SPECIAL TASK.
"What? Why me? I'm no different from the other priestesses. Please I only want to face what's before me. Please let me be!
"I SHALL NOT! ONLY YOU CAN FULFILL MY TASK!"
Serenity quivered at the angry voice. It was quite for a while, but the voice spoke again.
"FORGIVE ME MY CHILD. I DID NOT MEAN TO FRIGHTEN YOU. PLEASE HEAR OUT MY PLEA BEFORE DECIDING FOR YOURSELF. FOR COUNTLESS CENTURIES, I HAVE WATCHED MAN DESTROY THE FORESTS OF THE WORLD FOR SUCH FOOLISH LUXURIES. I WANT TO STOP THE SLAUGHTERING OF THE FORESTS AND THEIR INHABITANTS. YOU SEE MY CHILD, I WANT YOU TO BE MY IRON FIST.
"What do you mean by that?" Serenity asked.
"I WILL BRING YOU BACK TO LIFE IN A BODY THAT IS NOT YOUR OWN BUT A MERE IMAGE OF YOUR OWN. I WILL GRANT YOU THE POWERS OF THE EARTH AND YOU WILL USE THOSE POWERS TO STOP THE SLAUGHTERS. DO YOU ACCEPT MY TASK?
Serenity thought long and hard about the voice's plea.
"Tell me! Do you know what awaits me in the afterlife?"
"I DO NOT"
"Then...then I accept your task! I'll be your iron fist! If only to protect the forests which i love so much. Now please! Take me out of this place!"
"THANK YOU, MY CHILD. YOU SECOND LIFE SHALL BEGIN SOON."

The voice uttered some strange words that Serenity did not understand. After that, Serenity began to feel light headed. The room got blurry and she fell to the transparent ground.
