ONE THOUSAND & TWO LIES
When the truth hides beneath a layer of lies, it's hard to decide what is more important: The truth that's hidden from the eyes of the world, or the lies piled on top.
As a Reaper, I never dreamed of what freedom would feel like. To be able to walk down the street without looking over my shoulder or to even love a man. Or men...
Gaining a chance at a new life feels like I've taken a deep inhale of fresh air for the first time ever, my head through the surface as I rejoice at my new living circumstances. Yet, tragedy has a way of dragging one back down, especially when your dream of happiness attempts to be a reality.
Mourning my loss is harder than I could have expected, and it leaves me wondering if freedom is truly worth it. I must decide to either fight for this chance at life or return to what I know as a Reaper of Beauty.
My roommates want the best for me, and before they'll allow me to try returning to my old ways, they give me a glimpse of what love is. A taste that leads to a dangerous addiction.
The lies won't end because the truth hasn't been revealed, and with a new group of enemies after me, it's time for me to continue the lying game and fight for the sake of remaining free.
Will I survive? Maybe not, but I guess I'll die trying.
Let the game continue...One Thousand and Two.
