A Main Characters Biggest Secret:
Watching as the rope grew taunt and began to gently sway, I wanted to throw up, but how could I? I was now apart of the Devil’s army and his men did not get sick after killing someone. Especially when you specifically asked to be saved so you could kill that somebody.
I pretend it didn’t phase me, that it was just what I wanted to do. No one knows that until I met Alexandra that I woke up from nightmares every night. Reliving the look in the man’s eyes, the apology that laid within but he was too proud to speak. I do wish that I could go back to that time. I would have warned my mother, I would have made her run away with me and we could have been happy.
I could have been a husband, a father, a good man.
Perhaps with Alexandra I will get that chance, but would I want to outlive my love? My children? My children’s children? Maybe getting recycled wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen to me afterall.
