The Death Cheater
"I remember the rubble. The Earthquakes that had been caused. The flashes of blinding light and the screaming. I'll always remember the screaming. Women, men, and children crying out in fear and pain. Everything is different now though. No pain, no fear, no happiness, nothing. Even the beautiful colours that I used to see are gone, stolen from me as the world transitioned into grey, white, and black. That used to be everything to me."
"I remember a time when being unique made you special. When there were worlds to explore and strange creatures just waiting to be discovered. There was a time when people used to say "I love you" and there were different cultures, races, and people. I know that I shouldn't remember, but they have never been able to take the memories from me. Never been able to realize my secret."
