Nothing. Ever since I was a child that is all I have experienced. I was not aware of its abnormality until I was six years old.

“It was just a dog,” unashamed of what I had done, I informed my parents when they found our pet’s mutilated remains in our backyard.

From that moment forward my parents developed an estranged attitude towards me.

Perhaps my incapability to perceive genuine emotions is what drove me to this situation and the countless others. My twisted, perverse mind is exempt from the burden of guilt.

Immunity to all animalistic sensations makes me a specimen to be hailed, exalted even, above all other pathetic creatures.

As a darwin-esque representation of human evolution, I am exceptional, superior, sophisticated. Trivial human apprehensions do not preoccupy me from far more important matters.

For years people will marvel at what propelled me to wrap my hands around their beautifully pale necks.

What about their bulging eyes and gasps for breath left me wanting more? The answer? Their energy, the feeling of their miserable lives slipping through my fingers like sand.

The power of their straining muscles fighting against me. The raw scars of my torn flesh where they clawed me.

Welting on my torso were the blue and black bruises inflicted by defiant women, convinced they could conquer me. The frailty of their bones as they cracked under my weight. Oh… yes.

It didn't start this way... It began with a useless, pitifully simple girl. We exchanged I-Love-You’s, but they were never heartfelt… at least not from me.

No… The first one was inspired by the desperation to solicit one insignificant mortal feeling. What it gave me was oh… so much better.

A mediocre start to a prodigious career will not quench the fear I will inflict upon the human race. I will be everlasting, celestial, immortal.

This was for a school prompt in 12th grade English. If you all have some tips to improve pushing and such feel free to add them :) I couldn't get the pausing quite right at the end...

I wanted it to sound almost like he's "getting off" or getting pleasure from what he's saying!
