A Shin Megami Tensei: Persona fanfiction.
A boy sits in the back of an empty train moving along the rails in the dark night. No sound is heard except the screeching of the wheels as the train arrived into the station. When the doors opened everything was off and no one was there. The boy was confused and he saw the strangest thing a blue butterfly landed on his finger.
"Hello." A voice behind him spoke. The boy turned around and found himself facing a masked man.
"You must be the one who's moving to this city. I am glad I'm the first to welcome you." The man spoke, "But before I can let you go on I need you to sign this contract."
Now the boy was puzzled. "A contract?"
"Yes. It simply states that you will take full responsibility of your actions." The man held out a single sheet of paper and a ink quill. The boy proceeded to sign his name.
"Kyou Fujisaki. Welcome" And with that the man disappeared and the life seemingly returned to the station.
Kyou was confused from his strange encounter when a man approached him.
"Kyou right? I'm your uncle. Come on it's pretty late." Kyou grabbed his belongings and followed his uncle to his car.
"Hey . . . I'm sorry for your loss."
"He was your brother as well."
"I know." There was a long pause, "Oh here we are."
Both of them entered the home. "Its pretty roomy for a home that only I live in. But try to make yourself at home. Well it is your home."
"I should get some rest. I am extremely tired."
"You're room is the second one to the right. Remember you have school tomorrow."
And with that Kyou left to his room.
When Kyou realized it he found himself in a room with walls made of mirrors. Sitting in center of the room are two people. “Welcome to the Velvet Room. My name is Igor.”
Kyou started to panic a bit trying to find a way out.
“Don’t Panic. You are here in your dreams and your body is resting.” Igor said.
“What is this place?”
“This is a place that is between the Conscious and the Unconscious. This room is tied to the fate of our guests. Now why do we look into your future?”
Igor takes out a Tarot Deck and flips a card over.
“Ahh the Tower Arcana. This card represents turmoil. There will be danger in your future.”
He flips another card.
“What’s this? The Reversed Hanged Man. Interesting, normally a card of self sacrifice is now one of indecision.” A third card is flipped over but suddenly goes blank.
“Ah that was The Fool. But to go blank, it seems your future is not yet determined and that you are able to write it for yourself.” Igor pauses, “But for now your time here is up, but don’t fret you will return.”

Kyou slowly gets out of bed. “School awaits, huh?”
Kyou looked up to see his uncle. "I'll be on my way to work. Lock up when you leave." His uncle said as he left the house.
Kyou slowly got up and looked out of the window. "Future. Huh."
