Serial Novel. Fake Game. Chapter I. By Martin Cid

Day I

I look out the window and I am here, I can just remember that. Somewhere in Manhattan. I think we are on first years of XXI century, but I cannot specify the year. I am ill, stupidly ill, who gets ill in the United States. I can answer that: just an idiot does. There is a black receptionist, called Tim, who brings me the medicines. I just look out the window for hours and hours. I am trembling. I am scared. Scared of who or what? I cannot remember, sorry. I just can remember I am in a hotel room in Manhattan, XXI century.

I have one suitcase near the bed: ten shirts will be enough. I’m not American or English and this is not my language but this is all I can remember right now. Manhattan. XXI century. It is me shivering; it is me imaging a cold mountain plenty of Sun… I can breathe calm waiting for another day. What’s the objective of this game? I cannot remember anything about my mission but I can feel that I really have one mission. I am here for one reason and the actual objectives of the game in this point are:

1.- Who am I.

2.- What is the mission.

I just know one thing: the objective it’s fixed by my identity and my identity it’s fixed by the objective. I must work on that, I must work on me. I’ve been in similar situations many other times. You know who are you? Really, I’m in a hotel room in Manhattan, XXI century. You sure? Are you really sure this is not a dream again?

I need to sleep again.

 Day I, later

I’m still here. The suitcase is still near the bed. I need to approach it, maybe the solution it’s there. I move up, I’m weak, I’m tired… outside, the lights turn on. Someone is there. Who? There’s a note under the door, I will read it later. Now, I am near the suitcase. It’s opened. There’re some clothes, man clothes. Yes, I am a man: my first stupid conclusion. I find a passport and I find my name: John B. Mirror, what a stupid name! It cannot be mine! I cannot remember to be John Mirror but that’s the only clue in this deal. According to the passport, John Mirror had been here from 1st September 2010. At least, I had one date and one name. But my mind is still confused: I’m not John B. Mirror. I continue seeking in the suitcase, just a travel book: Poland, by John B. Mirror. Am I a travel writer? It would explain some, but not all. The book is not special: some photos and some descriptions about Poland, where to eat… same stupid book, same stupid words by John Mirror… but I am not John Mirror. I am sure of that.

I advance some steps across the room. City lights over my face. It’s late at night. It’s Manhattan, maybe if I read the note under the door I will understand something. I’m there. The envelope is open. Inside, just that:

Game’s not over

I can hear steps outside. I’m ill. I cannot think, I cannot move. Run? Steps come close. I need to move faster. The temperature is getting up. I cannot move. I fall.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
