I know what I'm not. Human.
I can't remember my life before Earth, but I've grown up hearing the stories of a planet ravaged by war and a people in need of a leader who will bring them out of the darkness. I'm supposed to be their light.
My future terrifies me.
I have one ally.
His blue eyes haunt my memories. Like a ghost. A memory I've forgotten. He's a stranger, but also the only comfort I have left.
They tell me to wait.
But I'm done waiting to have a real life. If I ever want a chance to live free of the Shadows, I'll need to fight for it because freedom is never free. No matter what galaxy you call home.
