Hi! I'm back again with a sequel to Life Begins Anew. I thought I'd make the first chapter an author's note to explain some things about the plot instead of having a ridiculously long author's note at the beginning of the first real chapter.

Okay, this story takes place approximately four years after Life Begins Anew ended. Seeing as according to this plot, Amanda would no longer be a part of the games after Saw II, a few things from the series are different in this story.

Eric eventually made it out of the bathroom and was found and taken to the hospital, where his foot was fixed. Therefore, he was not found by John, so he was not part of Rigg's test. Rigg only had to "save" Hoffman, but he still failed and died from blood loss. Allison Kerry was never tested and therefore is still alive.

Now, on with the story!

P.S. I'm not really a fan of this title, but it's what I was able to come up with. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. :)
