<p align="center" class="MsoNormal" style="text-align:center">MHAF Chapter 1: A New World <p class="MsoNormal">It was a normal day at the beginning of winter. I got up at around 6AM because I usually don’t sleep in. I decided on an old, faded black shirt with “America” written on the front with an eagle flying I front of the Statue of Liberty on the front and a pair of dark blue jeans with the knees turned almost white from use. Today was the 21st of December, 2012. I had heard on the news about how there was to be a so-called “apocalypse” today. I didn’t believe it because of all the Doomsday predictions I hear from people about every year. After all they were all false so why should this one be any different? I brushed my teeth, got dressed, went downstairs to the living room, nearly tripping on the stairs, and got on my computer. I got on the Monster Hunter Wiki like I do every morning when I wake up and talked to some of my internet friends. I got some cereal and was browsing YouTube for new videos and Minegarde to see if a certain story was updated. Around 8AM I walked outside to get some fresh air (that and it was 90 degrees Fahrenheit in my house), sat on the porch and started playing MHP3rd. I was hunting Jinouga when I heard a deafening roar, which I thought was coming from the game, but then I heard it again it sounded like a wolf’s howl. I heard a growl and then another howl, and then a yelp and everything became deathly silent. I looked over at my neighbor’s house and saw a dark red, wolf-like monster eating their dog. “Dark Jinouga?” I said under my breath.
