I see now that the darkness in my head is not caused by night, but smoke. The world will burn. This I know.

You will destroy everything. Humanity doesn’t deserve extinction. Why are you doing this?

Because we have to make them see what they turned us into. This is the only way.

By setting the world aflame? Then you will burn along with it.

It’s too late for that. There is nothing left of me but ash. And when all of life is reduced to embers, my body shall fall to earth and blanket the ruins. I will be the last sacrifice. You, my love, will have the glory of building a new world.

May the gods help us all.

No, my dear. They have already abandoned us.
