This is the place where they all go. In fact I’ve been waiting here too long. I’ve started to see them all. I thinking worst of them, the regulars, the buss riders, the coffee drinkers, the bums….they’re all liars and no one can tell. They know of course, after all they have to, they’ve sent each other here. They work together in dark, subtle ways, intricate, evil and somehow beautiful. I would know, I used to be like them. Most of them have forgotten and of the rest, few of them know- but I was third one.
I remember how it was too. Bright and empty, the snow would fall like cheap plastic wine bottles and melt on the asphalt. The ground was always so warm. I’m still not sure if it was the hot springs or the fallout… Anyway the first one came and he saw that the city could be used. It was far from everything but full of incredibly stupid humans. They didn’t even notice when it started. The dumb bastards thought it was another plague. By the time there were there of us we had learned to practice restraint. Even if the town couldn’t tell what was going on, someone else might and it would have been worse for us. I mean if the white rose had known we were operating out there when we were only three I’m sure that even I would have died. I’ve done that twice already and I had no intention of doing it again.
Anyway the second one, she killed theorist. He was the first. He made all of the plans. The second, she butchered theorist but she kept his plans and she put them in place. That was when I disappeared. In response she started bringing more and more in from the cabin on the outskirts. Maybe she was scared of me and wanted back up, or maybe she just wanted to watch the whole damn world burn. That was what started happening. Our numbers were too great,I’d watched it all for too long. Now it was to the point where, if I was going to survive and keep feeding,they were all going to have to die. Every last one of them had to burn and it had to start with her. Then theorist’s plans could be mine and I could know the truth he had always hidden from meC
