They say that growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional. I disagree, we are forced to become adults. We have bills to pay, taxes to do. We can try to grasp and strain to hold on to that little bit of childhood magic we have left but it is not enough. We see our childhood friends grow so far apart. Even if you still connect it’s not the same childlike energy. I so clearly remember playing with my friend laughing about the silliest stuff. I have not seen him in years… he is still the best friend I have.
To Kill a God
“Have you ever seen one before? A human?” “No.” “ I've only heard the legends.” Davin heard from two gawking onlookers as he was walking on lux-43, the 5th planet in the lombx system. He smiled to himself, he loved the agape mouths and awestruck bystanders he got when he decided to take to the streets. Humans were a rarity, an enigma that even the most well versed traveler usually never saw. This fascination was due to more than just the simple sparseness of the ancient race however. Humans were the epitome of a warrior race, every child in every solar system had heard tales of the fearsomeness, courage, strength, and endurance of humans. Living on earth for so long had molded these mythical creatures to become the peak of sentience. The high gravity sculpting their muscles, making the athletic prowess of them next to god-like. The many diseases and illnesses harbored there had made them effectively immune to all biological ailments. All features of earth had tailored these beings into the unstoppable killing machines that caused fear to all races across all lands for generations.
