Its a place that shouldn't exist...a place that should've been destroyed, thousands of years ago and yet it still existed and I had stumbled upon it...forever keeping its secret.

Its the silence we crave more than anything and its peace that we try and find but what one doesn't know is that neither can be achieved.

I've tried for many years...for centuries in search of silence, in search of peace. I spent endless months of torture, I've witness death and contributed to the death toll. I've done many, many terrible things and no one was able to stop me and yet all of this rendered me to nothing. For all those years I had been searching for something that didn't exist, for something that never will.

Yet I kept on. My will to find the impossible overpowered my will to live, holding me prisoner to my own salvation. I wanted to find it, I needed to find it. For all those years only my perseverance kept me going, kept me breathing; it was that, that lead me to find the one place I thought never existed, the one place that shouldn't exist yet it did and I had so ever mistakenly stumbled upon it and now was burdened with its secrets.

It was now my duty to protect it, keep it safe from those who would abuse it, from those who sought power and fed on greed. I was forever the guardian of a place that should've been destroyed thousands of years ago.
