Paradise island

Chapter 1 - paradise island - chapter one

My eyes open. I remembered last night. The flashbacks were horrible. Both engines failed. We had to crash in the water. Everything was chaotic, everyone was fighting for their lives in the cold water.

How did I get here? I lay in a bedroom. There were drapes around the huge windows that reached the ceiling and at the back of the room there were two doors that overlooked the bright blue ocean. A warm breeze circulated in the room. I was in paradise. But how?
I was rescued, clearly, but why was I taken here.
There was a knock on the door.
"Um, are you awake?"

"Yes, where am I?"

A tall man muscular man walked in the room. He was wearing some pants that appeared to be home made.

"No one knows exactly where we are. Im serious. We all just wake up here, or at least some of us. I was born here to the king and queen."

"So you are saying that I'm stranded here, and we haven't had any connections with modern society?"

He could tell the worry in my voice. "It's not bad here, trust me. We never fight, everything is peaceful. Everyone is taken care of by their partners."

"So, uh, whats your name?" He asked.

"Im Quinn, and yours?'

"Max. I'm Max."

I like Max. I don't know what it is about him, he just appeals to me. Anyway, I have nothing to loose. If I am forced live in paradise for the rest of my life for free, so be it. I have nothing to loose. Especially since I am not wealthy to begin with. It looks like he is probably one of the more influential figures in the community.

"Do you mind showing me around?"

"Sure. Its going to be a lot to take in, but you'll get used to it. Also, um, don't be surprised if you are being watched. You are sort of a celebrity, since I chose you."

"Okay." I responded. As soon as I tried to sit up, electric pain shot through my body. He could see my discomfort. I looked straight at his deep blue eyes.

"Do you need some help?" He asked.

"Yeah, but because my back hurts I think that I'm just going to l-"

He walked over to me and picked me up, being gentle. It took me by surprise.

"What the hell do you think you're doing!" I yelled while simultaneously pounding his back with all of my strength.

"Getting you some help, like you asked," He replied with a smirk on his face.

As soon as he took me out of the room, my anger dissipated. I was astonished by the detail and craftsmanship that went into his manor. It had to be most luxurious place in this entire paradise land. He carried me through a kitchen, a dining hall, and a living space before he reached a small room.

"This room has a bunch of oils, herbs, and anything that we have available to us."

I watched him do the magic. He took out a bowl and filled it with a concoction that was very elaborate. It almost looked like he was just putting in a lot of random plants and fluids. I was laying down on an elaborate couch that had to have been incredibly expensive. I was in trance when he approached me.

"Hey, Quinn!" He was standing next to me. "Is everything alright?"

"Yeah, its just a lot to take in."

I mean't it, though I was just really amazed by the sheer detail put in this place. Surely it couldn't all be like this.

"So, Quinn, where does your back hurt?" He asked, like a doctor would.

"Well, pretty much my whole back is in pain. But right here is where it hurts the most."

'Can you lay down with your back facing up?"

I lay there and started to relax as he massaged the ointment into my back. The pain was fading, but so was my consciousness. I was more relaxed than I had ever been in my life.
