Today, the twisted world made itself known to me—no dark humor or dry smiles to be had. Guess I should feel lucky or fortunate to be spared death after-all, but I felt no such joy.

Instead I stood waiting as fourteen shadows appeared before my very feet—or were there seven? I couldn’t quite tell, in some light that number tripled, quadrupled.

Before long a whole army of teeming, rapidly ravishing jurors stood over me, circling above—waiting to delve out a sentence I couldn’t spare to hear as their voices jeered in my head, making my pulse jolt.
