As I gazed into the mirror, my reflection’s eyes blinked out of sync with mine, and a chilling smile spread across its face. I heard a door slam and turned away to a whisper that said, “You have to escape.”
I always thought my baby sister hated me because she cried every time she looked at me. Until i realized that she was looking behind me.
After a global pandemic, World War III, Civil War 2, numerous riots, rebellions and society eating itself; I was able to finally close my eyes after a long life and give into death’s embrace.
Three words entered my vision: “Tutorial Stage Complete.”
