UntitledI am alone.
Ever since I started my little experiment, I've been growing further and further apart from other people, changing to the point where I was no longer... human.
I've never had the need to ask myself what it is that makes us human. Is it our body? Our mind? Our personality? Our environment? Our culture? Our DNA?
If it is all of those things then I am human by at least one account. I'm not quite sure about the rest. Except for my body. That, by now, is nearly 100% machine.
I started out by testing one of the virtual reality modules that I helped create. Instead of a more traditional helmet or goggles, we were creating a whole new concept, one that would change humanity.
At the time i had no clue how deep the change would be. That is, if I ever decide to publish my research. Maybe I'll leave them as my legacy. Yeah, that's what I'll do, I'll diligently keep notes about my progress, but I'll hide them for as long as I'm alive. That way I'll keep them off my case and they can fin
The plotHer scream was muffled by the hand over her lips. Another one grabbed her arm, preventing her from escaping. She thrashed wildly and was about to break free when he whispred "I'm not here to hurt you, I'm here to help."
Her body calmed, but he was still careful about removing his arms. "I'm going to let you go now. I need you not to scream, because then I'll get dragged out of here before I can warn you. Okay?"
She nodded and he let her go. "Warn me?" she asked, turning around, "And how did you even get in here!?"
Kneeling down when she faced him, he lowered his head. "Pardon me, your majesty, for invading the privacy of your quarters. I was out of line and I deeply apologize, but the situation is dire."
She frowned, not quite convinced he was here with good intentions. What could it possibly be that justified such an intrusion. She could have him hanged for it!
"If you'll let me explain," he pleaded, "I tried talking to the guards and they wouldn't listen. They are convinced they can
The Biggest LieThe biggest lie I ever told,
From which a story will unfold,
Is one that I was born quite poor.
Now what to do, I am unsure.
She trusted me to be sincere
I let her down, just out of fear.
I wanted her to love just me
And not the things that I could give.
Now I want her to be my queen,
But first of all, I should come clean.
How do I tell her who am I,
When all she'll see is one big lie.
It's over now, just as I thought.
She saw the mansion I had bought
For her and me, as we grow old.
I should have never been so bold.
Now, as I walk my path alone,
I know I'll never be so prone
To hide my true identity.
I should have told her this is me.
