A villain that sees me for what I’m worth and wants the pound of flesh I’ve offered up as repayment for my sins. The burden I carry is heavy on my shoulders, but as pieces of me are stripped away to bare the horrors within, I can feel myself becoming worthy of the pain.
I’m not a monster.
No matter how much it hurts to admit it, and no matter how terrible the truth will be when brought to light, I know that I’ll end this cleansed and whole again.
It’s what I truly want and that’s why I’m here.
The nights are long and full of torturous deviance and yet I still manage to keep a smile on my face, because while the ultimate prize at the end of this game is to claim my life, there’s a secret my tormentor doesn’t know.
If I go down, it will mean the end of both of us.
