The Sorrow King
Ooh! I was soo rubbing my hands together for this one and rightly so! Prunty has brought forth a delectable piece so vivid I almost felt like I was seeing it with my own eyes at times. A great piece!
What would you call him? Who, you ask? The person, the thing you are most scared of. What would he look like to you?
The only person that seems to have the slightest clue as to what might possibly be going on is Steven Wrigley and even he isn't so sure. Everyone is calling it "The Suicide Virus." Steven has now found out that he knows the names of the people who die before anyone else knows. Before it's made public. How does he know this? All he wants is to live through the year. He gets along great with his dad, but gets overwhelmed knowing so much about the kids who are dying, he goes for walks late at night to clear his head. That's where he meets Elise.
Elise has her own set of secrets all to herself. Ever since she was younger, she has had a special place to go that's all to herself, just to get away from everybody and everything. She calls it the Obscura. She only goes there when she's angry or depressed though. And when she's there, she gets this whole other feeling like never before. There is a reason for this, just like there is a reason for the suicides.
He feeds off your fear. Sadness. Frustrations. Anger and depression. Who is he?
He is whatever you fear. He forms to fit you.
He is the Sorrow King.
