You know how people say "You only live once?" Yeah, I have never lived. Or at least, as long as I remember, I had no family,no friends, or any social relationships.
Confused? Yeah I guess anyone would be, only thing is I was born from death.
To clarify things, I was born from an egg.
No, not a chicken egg, a Souless Egg.
A Souless egg is the soul of a human who has sinned, someone who had sinned, but their soul was pure and kind.
So they are reborn into a Souless Egg, and their memories and warmth are wiped away when they hatch. They once were human.
Only they all hatch at the same age, they hatch and they are 20. Even if while they were alive, a toddler, a elder, or a teenager.
You go to the age 20 and remain that way. Forever.
We are called Flesh Ghosts, in other words, we are Grim Reapers.
We appear to be human, only we are given black small wings on our backs, the sign of our sentance for our sins.
Flesh Ghosts do not feel anything but every hateful emotion we have felt in our lives.
Especially the emotion we had died from.
We remember only the blurrs of every bitter memory we had as humans.
Its our drive. Its what keeps us going.
Its what keeps me going.
The ones who had created this Flesh Ghost society and world are the Death Deities. We meet different ones when we are born depending the situation of our human life, but we only ever know , and see that single God.
The God Deity tells us our first name, what we do, and what we are.
After that we follow our orders obediantly.
We watch humans who are going to die, and we make sure they do not die until it is time. We slice their soul with our signature weapon from their body when it is time, usually they die of old age, or a disease of some sort. Never a accident, nor do we make them go crazy to kill themselves.
They die from something natural and we send their soul to the Deity we follow orders from.
My God Deity is Persephone. Yes she is the Goddess of Vegetation, but she is the Queen of a part of the underworld.
She gave me a bow and arrow, the bow a dark silverly black, with a odd glowing gold string. I shoot humans with a arrow formed by my spirit energy.
Like countries, the underworld is divided by which country they are from.
Out of the Greek underworld, she is the queen of it.
That is why I have to wear a white dress Tunic. Simple black flats, and black roses decorated into a halo to fit my head, on my (Hair colour) hair.
Black roses mean Death.
A symbol of what fate I bring to humans.
There are many parallel reflections of human worlds, many with mythical creature, and various worlds for each person that exists, what might have been depending what they decide.
Too many to count.
So little Flesh Ghosts. That is why 10,000 are put in each world for as long as the God Deity orders them to be, signed under a catagory of types of humans, such as babies, toddlers, teenagers, adults, and elderly people.
However there are odd once humans in each different world, such as vampires,were-wolves, zombies.
Zombies are usually the result of the human soul leaving the body with most of its life, why the little bit of life left feels empty.
It remembers it was once filled with something that had to do with humans. So they eat humans in hopes to fill the emptiness.
Oh right, you never got my name did you? My name is (Name), I am a girl, and a Flesh Ghost, but you knew that already.
Today I was placed in a odd little world of where everything is like the original earth, where humans believe in monsters, some don't and they move on with their lives.
Only this world, each country had a personafication of the country.
They live as long as the country does.
I wonder if they grow tired of living endlessly?
I take out my small parchement of paper and read out the black inked letters
"...Germany...Human name: Ludwig Beilshmidt. Body age: 20. Gender: Male. Species: Human/Country(???)." The rest was his relationships, he has with every country he has met.
I read out. I sat in mid air as my spirit floated in mid air.
Thankfully Humans can not see Flesh ghosts unless they know in their soul they will die, which is rare.
I bit my bottom lip as I read the last line, hoping that I don't need to watch this human...country, whatever you call them, for too long.
I sighed. "Of course...13 years...I better go find him then..." I muttered, as I flew through the clouds and looked for his Spirit Line.
Spirit Lines are different for each person, they connect a human to their soul and heart. Think of it as rope that keeps a human, human. If that makes sense.
I glided past skyscrapers and buildings, as I looked for a smoky line.
Of course, since I was given the assignment to harvest Germany's soul, I can only spot his Spirit Line.
For Flesh Ghosts, they are easily spotted, and just like that, I spotted a strong lightning blue Spirit Line floating from a tall building.
Spirit Lines also represent the Human's personality strongly, and from what I saw, Germany must be a strong sort of country-erm...Human I mean.
As I flew close,I heard a deep voice yelling angrily. The closer I got, the more louder and angrier it became.
Then when I got close to the window it suddenly stopped.
Curiously I peered into the window, but before I could get a good view of what happened, the yelling returned, stronger then ever, which caused me to flinch, choke on air I has inhaling and have a mini heart-attack.
As quick as I had been caught off-guard, I reformed my calmness, and tooke a long breat. I looked in the window and saw a tall man, with strong eyes, that held his strict personality.
He had neat,light blond hair that was slicked back, and he wore a brown suit, and was yelling, at from what I knew, a country. I remember it was....Italy?
I sighed as I watched the strong German man, yell at the cowardly scared Italian.
Seriously, this guy is ridiculous!
He's yelling at the other guy because he kept running away from the enemy...?
Oh I get it, they are in a war. Wait. War?
Lovely, I get more work, That means I have to stay with Germany to make sure he doesn't get hurt.
I hastily took out my rule book and wrote a question "How long, do I need to watch Germany everyday?
I closed the book and opened to the same page, and the answer was below "EVERY SINGLE MINUTE" In bold black letters.
I HAVE TO STAY WITH HIM 24/7?!
