A Thousand Threads Outside of Eternity
Author: Sarinom

Chapter 12
Relative evil

            I suppose the truth is that I don’t care enough to do anything for them. Inside, I want to care, but the drive just is not strong enough to create action. X followed through with the plan. The Russian was murdered in a way fitting of his future atrocities. Before the eyes of the world he was slain, and a distant crisis was adverted. Regardless, the end is still the same only now; more die since this man that would have brought the second mass genocide of the world has been eliminated. They say that someone that watches evil being done and does nothing is just as evil as the one that is actually acting in evil. So am I evil?  This is why I have grown tired and melancholic of the human condition, It all ends the same, every thing else is just airy filling; it may seem important, but it is worthless. I hate that I have this need to belong. The other half of me wants to just exist, without the thousands of threads that connect and entangle us. To simply be left alone without fickle human conflict is what I truly need, but I’m not sure it’s what I want.
