Caustic (part 2)

Submission type:


It's gonna take more than that to stop me.
This shit won't even slow me down. Burning eyebrows and stomach turning 'round. Please... I'm a clone. Even if I am not built to endure such horrific torment, I am expected to, and that's what keeps me going.

Every step forward brings pain, and yet I have to make it. There is uncanny willpower behind this staggering movement forward. And it's hard to please, hard to obstruct. This is not a dream, this will leave scars even if I make it.
Not the cool kind of scars that you accentuate with clothes and tattoos: "Oh look - he is tough, but he is also deep, you know?" Nah. Corny as it sounds, these scars will make you wish you were dead.


Things look bleak now in this sandstorm.

The other pilgrims have given up.
The baby in my arms is dead but I still carry it.


I used to be solid. Where the fuck am I headed to? Am I finally losing it?

(( I am passingly reminded of a CHOTA story from the origional staff about following a madman promising a land for themselves and those who followed him... I suspect Engel's story wont end up so 'nice' though. ))
