The Protagonist – Julian Alistair
They asked me why I had been standing in the rain when I should have gone home an hour ago.
I told that them that, “I thought, maybe, if I stood in the rain…no one would see my tears”
I joined the Secret Service to find her. I thought that perhaps when I did, I would be able to pull her back into the light. To restore the good that was in her heart. And to show the world that she was not the villain the papers claim her to be.
But I was naive.
When I found her, her eyes were different. ‘Mina,’ I shouted. But she no longer responded to the call of her name.
‘I am the Red King,’ she stated.
And I had nothing else to say.
