For the past six days, every single day, people were dying. I’m not talking about single digit, I’m talking thousands. These killings are happening in random towns and cities. The government believes that it’s one of the country’s enemies who are behind this scheme, but after just a few hours of investigation, that possibility was ruled out. These murders were worldwide, not countrywide.
Day after day, thousands die. On the first day, 4,814. No explanation of their deaths. Actually, there were no symptoms of it either. It’s like those people just decided to stop living.
On the second day, 1,413. Leaders all over the world were killed. Presidents, CEOs, religious leaders, you name it. The victims had their eyes gouged out were laid on their back with both hands on their chests.
On the third day, 41,314. These people were friends and families of those who were killed the previous day. Every single body had its throat ripped out. Right before they were killed, it is believed that they were crying. Perhaps they were grieving.
On the fourth day, 41,718. These people tried traveling to other places to escape from whatever it was that was killing everyone. They took planes that later crashed into open fields. No explanations, no survivors.
On the fifth day, another 41,718. The bodies could not be identified. Their fingers were cut off, their eyes were missing, and their faces were so torn apart that not even the family members of the victims were able to identify them. Every single person that died that day will have their identities hidden forever.
On the sixth day, 11,614. This day was different. Every single person who died that day committed suicide. They gathered the people’s attention and right before either pulling the trigger on themselves or jumping off a building face first, they said “I will keep my vows.”
Now, on the seventh day. Today is the seventh day and everyone is worried. Nobody is safe in this hellhole. Everyone’s got their own theory on whatever is going on here. Some say aliens, some say demons, some say the government. Me? I have no opinion, just thoughts. I don’t know what to do anymore. My family is with me, but for how long? Everyone has lost hope and I’m no different. We have nothing to believe in.
Just then, a bright light in front of me appeared. It was blinding, but I could see it. I looked around and everyone was just as intrigued as I was. We were all intrigued but at the same time felt panic. I looked closer and the light started transforming itself into a silhouette of a man.
“Who are you?” I asked.
“Me? That is not important. I’m merely following orders that I am given. But if you must know, I am your damnation. I will cleanse this earth of every human being.” Everyone around the room widened their eyes.
“What?! Who are you?! Answer me!”
“He’s a demon!” someone yelled.
“A demon?” he said with a chuckle. “I no longer wonder why father wants this planet cleansed. I am not a demon, but a servant of the lord.”
“Then why are you killing us?” I asked.
“Because he has lost faith in humanity. Every single commandment is broken every single day. Every human has broken a commandment. You were given free will and were asked to do one thing. Just one. Still, Adam and Eve went to that apple. What does that say about humans? This is not a ‘killing’, it is a genocide! Humans are disgraceful! For it is he who brings people back to life and is life itself. Those who believe in him will live even if they die. Everyone who lives and believes in him will never die.” He looked at me, pointed, and said “Do you believe that?”
I sat there, not knowing what to say.
“Apparently not.” On the seventh day, 112,526.
