My name is Emily and I’m a Soul Breaker, and in five days’ time, I will be unleashed upon the world to destroy your soul. Don’t judge me yet though, because I didn’t choose this. I know nothing but violence and manipulation; that's all I’ve ever been taught. Empathy and love for the human race are perceived as emotional weaknesses in my culture, which is why we are kept away until our eighteenth birthday. From the age of eight, we were all assigned an elder, each with different powers of their own. My elder is Veronica, a retired Soul Breaker, a teacher in mind manipulation. She’s destroyed many human’s souls before I was even born. Please don’t ask me what happens to you after I’ve broken your soul, because I don’t know; only a few of the elders get to know that, I think it has something to do with my Guide. We never get to see him, but we know he’s watching us, observing our every move. Sometimes I can feel him close to me; a strong and deadly presence closes in on my soul when I’m alone, and I just know it’s him. Anyway, enough with the self-justification, what I’m trying to say is, is that I’m different. The human race intrigues me; with its love and lust and moral high ground, I found myself fascinated by the story's Veronica use to tell me. So even though I’ve spent the last ten years training to be your Soul Breaker, I just want you to know that this isn’t what I wanted to become, and I hope that one day you will be able to forgive me, Emily.
