I am Zerno
"The urge to run became a thirst. I wanted to leave, but there was no place to go.
Then all of a sudden, a man whispered and the other voices hushed.
Silently, we stood there in the dark.
They knew him, but I did not. They were all dead, and I was not. It was obvious that he was the strongest one. He was keeping them imprisoned.
Anxiety poisoned my bloodstream, and my heart could not keep up with the new substance.
Behind me, I felt the presence of everyone backing away, but in front of me was a force that I could not understand.
What was going on?
On the other end of the hall, I saw a male figure.
I could not see much of who he was, but his presence was strong. He was laying there, watching me.
His skin was darker than the darkness itself. I did not see a face. I did not see hair. This guy was not human."
