Do you ever feel like something lurks,
In the shadow behind you?
Like there's always something at the end of the path,
Waiting to ensnare you in its long, serrated talons?
As if your next step could be into an endless pit.
Where you'd fall until you forgot how to scream your fear.
If you're reading this book, you should close it.
It's a dangerous book.
Don't turn around.
Don't look back
This is a story about someone with all those problems.
That's right. The ones I asked you about earlier.
I'm not paranoid.
I have a secret.
It's one that's lasted my whole life. Caused problems.
Problems you don't want.
I hope that they can't be inherited.
They say that there's a pull from people to danger.
I say it's the danger chasing the people.
I can't say what my secret is.
Though keeping a secret...
It's something my life has depended on. Too many times.
But Secrets, they tell me,
Can Sometimes be Solutions.
If you play your cards right.
