In this fucked up world

Fuck fairytales, reality is malnourished of happy endings,

 

This is the kind of story, where the hero always dies in the epilogue.

 

Cherry red flames engulf the house, but everything is splendid,

 

Final chapter is approaching, this is a tragedy, in case you forgot.

Yes, you're probably right. A few heroes are going to be disabused before all this goes down.

Always the case, several heroes have to die before it's all over. Thanks for reading Adam!

I don't know where life's taking us, Nik, but one thing's for sure. If no one ever tries to be a hero, we're a lost cause.

No, I don't believe in happy endings either. Excellent writing, MW.
