Fade To Black
In 1885, Leopold II of Belgium was able to procure the Congo Free State by convincing the European community at the Berlin Conference that he was to aid the natives, helping them to flourish and become civilized. However, once away from Europe's watchful eye, Leopold went mad, forcing the natives into slave labor. Leopold is remembered as infamous for his cruelty and inhumanness towards the people he vowed to save during these dark times.
This is the story of Nala, a young girl who lived a normal, happy life in Congo. Of course, this was before the Belgians came to wreak havoc in her native land. Now, Nala has to suffer through unspeakable agony in order to hang onto life. Seeing her friends and family go though brutal mutilations and whippings is enough to drive anyone mad, let alone a girl of her age. Luckily for her, one of the soldiers has taken a liking to her, so she herself is devoid of any physical pain. Psychological torture, however, is something she cannot escape.
