Cruel but Gentle - Herobrine X Steve
Back before there was anything, two brothers faded into existence. There names were Notch and Herobrine. They began to create a world together. Notch created the day, with the sun while Herobrine created the night with the moon. Notch created animals like pigs, chickens and sheep while Herobrine created trees. They built a castle to rule over the land they made, to make sure all was well
Then Notch made life. He gave humans intelligence and free will so that they could decide their own fate. The humans built villages, churches and farms. Notch created rain to make harvests successful. Unfortunately, when Herobrine found out what his brother had done, he was furious.
The two brothers began to argue. Arguing lead to the fight. Herobrine made monsters to aid him. There were Zombies, Skeletons, Spiders and Creepers. Oh how Herobrine laughed at Notch's horrified face as he transformed his pigs into destructive Creepers.
Thankfully, Herobrine ended up losing the fight. Notch couldn't bring himself to kill his brother so Notch banished Herobrine to the Nether forever.
Steve is a young Minecraftian, made in Herobrine's image. Steve hated having to kill and avoided doing so whenever possible. He waited for the monsters to attack him first, which lead to injuries and scars but Steve didn't care. He was happy.
Until Herobrine had begun to stalk him. Steve suffered from terrifying nightmares and struggled to get to sleep. Sleep came with fear. Why would Herobrine even waste a second on Steve? He wasn't anything special. Why didn't he go for a stronger target? Herobrine wouldn't waste his time on Steve...would he?
