I tried to sleep…
I got no resty
When I awoke
She was staring at me
I dreamt a dream
A distant memory?
I’m not entirely sure what it means
There was Sara again
Speaking to me in secret
Telling me things in her life
Perhaps it was in death depending on your reasoning
She just wanted a friend to talk to
Someone who would listen
She needed a friend
That was that then
I listened…my unrequited thoughts
Dying inside, like my shattered heart
In that memory I was given the proverbial
I had no real idea if that was actually the case
I didn’t know why I cared since we were Reapers
At least that seemed to be the case
We were based in a town known as Black Winter
These dreams…were they memories of my actual past?
I was starting to suspect so
Like leaves on the wind this scene faded
Soon forming another memory
We were talking though I could hear nothing said
Sara was crying
I gave her a hug
I was greatly conflicted
I’m not sure I should say what I thought
I couldn’t hear if I did but…
She looked up at me, tears in her eyes
It appeared she apologized
Wake up handsome
The facade…I was more than sure of it now
I didn’t know how…but, I knew this to be true
She smiled at me with that deviously perfect smile
Are you feeling okay?
You’ve been out for a while now
I wanted her warm embrace
I wanted to tell her I was okay
However…I knew, she was an illusion
She leaned in to kiss me, I dodged out of the way
That kiss…it always made me forget
I rushed outside only to find
The sky was black, lightning flashed
That beautiful field of sunflowers…
It had all wilted and the flowers were black
I turned around and it began to rain
The most twisted smile had now formed
On what was once, a perfect face
You want me…don’t you Ren?
The truth was I did…at least…I wanted that perfect reality
I didn’t think this was that though
I’m sorry, your princess is in another castle!
WHERE’S SARA! I’M SICK OF YOUR FUCKING GAMES!
I’m sorry, Sara isn’t able to come to the phone right now…
Don’t bother leaving a message…we are breaking her as we speak!
The field shook, and lightning began to violently strike
The figure before me smiled
Behind this wicked face a castle rose up
All black, made of skull and bones
A darkness resonated from it that I’ve never felt
I guess we’re through trying to fool you
We couldn’t break you psychologically…
Rest assured though, that means we will try other methods!
You want Sara?
I’m betting you die trying!
Something to that effect
I think it’s time I give you some truly fun news
Remember that suicide Sara committed…
It was murder!
Oh sure she was on the edge…
She kept holding on
We tired of this
Taking control of her…
We happily finished the bitch!
I felt a rage instantly take me over
I needed to control it but I was seeing red!
You are awfully quiet Ren
What, nothing to say?
Okay, well know
We have been having all kinds of fun with Sara
Sexually, psychologically, all kinds of things
Soon, she will be with us truly
I think then it will be fitting to have her suffer some more
Maybe we’ll even make you punish her?
Fun fact Ren…
This time you’ve spent in this place
Most notably this fantasy
It’s been slowing eating away at you
You may have noticed multiple memories, yes?
My scythe materialized and I came for this monster in Sara’s image!
She disappeared and reappeared closer to the doors of the castle
I don’t think so Ren…
You want revenge, you want the real Sara…
Then you’d better listen
Your having seen through our facade was unfortunate…
However this will be even more fun!
You have to go inside this castle to find Sara
She’s in the deepest depths of the nightmare before you
Here’s the fun part
Once you enter, and you will…
Every hour that goes by, you won’t get a reset
Nope, this room and place is safe from that…
Instead, you’ll lose a memory
Every hour, a memory gone
Eventually you’ll be a clean slate
We’ll make you whatever we want to!
It’s perfect really!
I’m betting I’ll reach Sara and escape this hell hole…
Long before I lose myself!
Oh yeah…about that…
Step foot through that door and you’ll find
A special rule applies as well
Every hour you don’t get to Sara and escape…
Well…I’ll let you discover that soon enough…
Just know Sara will pay as well…
So, soul, you up for it?
The moment you step through those doors…
THE MEMORY GAME BEGINS!
