I looked at Madeline from afar. Silent cry and broken tears rolled down her face. Alderam hurt her and I couldn't fix it. Usually the mess happens because of me but this time it changed. I mean, yes I brought the devil out of him but it was never meant to mean success. Alderam is weak, or maybe I thought he was. He's like a crack on a glass floor. If you keep stepping on it, it will continue to break until there's no more to step and you fall. Thinking about that makes me somewhat nervous to be around him.
Wait, wait, wait.
What am I thinking? Why would I feel any emotions towards that creature? I am Perseus, the master of darkness. Everyone hates you. Everyone wants to be me. What can Alderam do? Nothing, he's just a lord of light. I am the master, he's just the lord, we are nowhere to be touched on the same level.
Alderam is disgusting. He thinks it only takes one action to break me. He thinks that just because he got to Madeline, he'll get me. Yes, Madeline can light up this dark soul, but she can't be my reason of weakness. It takes way more than that to break me.
I couldn't voice against her. She stood up and took her hand and pressed it against mine. Her touch were soft, but they were cold. It was innocent, like the way her eyes twinkle every time she smiles, but it was lacking something. Her. She wasn't there anymore. She promised me to never leave, but it was broken. I was broken.
No one could escape the dark during those times. My father was even affected, but I didn't care. Nobody should have to go through what I went through, but they did because I was selfish. I am selfish. Everyone forgot about the entire thing. Why? Because a part of being a master, is you have something others don't have. I made them forget it all. No one should know, except me.
Madeline reminded me a lot of Sophia. Their presences attracted me way beyond any description. It was as if anyone were to describe water. You can't. Sophia was my queen. She was my world, but she left me. Well, it was more like I left her because she left me.
I don't think she truly loved me like they said she did. The feelings were just there but Sophia didn't want me. He doesn't remember. He doesn't need to remember. I don't want him to remember.
She wanted Alderam.
