-I lied to people and to myself way too much for so many years. I thought that mankind still stands a chance, that people still know to think on their own, not just manipulated by psychopathic leaders who want nothing but to kill and destroy all that’s good in this world.

-Yes, I figured that.
-I hope you know what that means. Lately I’ve been going out of here, but this didn’t happen so often before. I lived 90 % of my life down here. No school, no friends, no real life, just me, my mother and the darkness in this place. Why are we living down here, you may ask. Well, let’s see. It happened not so long ago...
