Once upon a time, there was a boy who dearly loved a girl. She dearly loved him back. Although many wars raged on in the chaotic world around them, their love was strong.
One day, the boy decided to propose to the girl. She ecstatically accepted. However, shortly after, the boy was dragged away to fight in the wars fought on ideals he did not own. The girl was then left alone in the tragedy that was set before her.
Far away from home, the boy fought in the wars for many years. Fighting many battles, and killing many young and innocent boys like himself, the boy eventually became a man.
After several long and hard years, he returned home, having finally seen enough of war. He slowly trudged to his house. He stood for a long time, taking in the reality of the sudden change in surroundings. He made his way to the door, and the boy who was now a man, knocked several times on his old lover’s door.
The door opened, the man took in a sharp breath, and managed to form a smile for the girl that he loved and proposed to all those years ago. When the door opened, he saw a small child staring up at him. The smile he was forcing then became real. But the smile quickly vanished. For right behind the child, out from behind the door, stepped a horror too awful to even imagine. For right behind the child, out from behind the door, stepped another man.
