Regards from a Dying MonsterJared, As you probably guessed earlier as we were running at 100 miles per hour through the town away from my twin brother, Jack, I'm not a normal person.

All I know is that my brother and I were a complete and utter accident; and we were a disaster waiting to happen. My father is a monster both physically and mentally. The reason my brothers and I (Yes. I have two brothers. I'll get to my older brother, Kai, in a moment.) even exist is because of his selfish ruthlessness. According to my mother's brief description of how he manipulated her, I've always guessed that he was fascinated with humans. My eldest brother, Kai, was born to another mother about twenty years before Jack and I came to exist. Even though I was born about 1,000 miles away from Kai, I could sense his existence. Monsters can do that; sense ea

Meeting Simon On the outskirts of town, I saw someone new cross the border. He had no spring in his step, unlike the normal citizens, who always seemed upbeat. He was trying to look normal, but I could tell by the look on his face that he was very nervous. His clothes were torn and dirty, just like his black hair, which had poorly cut bangs that were hanging over his eyes. He carried a large piece of bamboo with him, which he intensely gripped, as if it was important to him. At the time, I was very confused. Why was all he had a simple piece of wood?

Maybe he was like me, a simple kid who traveled around in search of food. He walked past me and said nothing as he examined his surroundings. Noticing a store that a lot of people were entering and exi
