Introduction to Me

Introductions are stupid.

Real mature, I know. But it's true. If I were to judge every kid with the dark clothes and colored hair that tells me he's gonna "Move to New York and become a poet" I'd have an ad on Craigslist right now asking for a new best friend.

There's no such thing as a second first impression but there is such a thing as a second chance, and I'm asking for at least 10 of those before I swear or something.

Sorry.

Let me get to the part you want: the blood.



You want me to be broken. You want to see the gore and the pain and the trials. You want the girl who can't stop remembering the way her hands suddenly became alien objects when she sat next to the kid who was too busy reading to know she was there. No one wants to hear about a sunny day in the park. You want a story.

And I'll give you one hell of a story.

    You don't need a second chance, your first impression leaves me out of my mind stoked to keep reading.
