I don’t fucking know how, and I can’t fucking explain it, but somehow Wajid has caught wind of my scent and is now after me.
I’m only writing this journal entry to let you all know that… to be honest, I’m split between being terrified and knowing I deserve this. My friends don’t, and that’s why I’m begging all of them - all of you - to stay away from him. Run if you see him. He’s dangerous, and he will do nothing but hunt you if you end up on his shit list.
I. I don’t know if this is the same Wajid that ran the Broken Hearts. The name is similar enough, but I never met the leader of that small gang, so I don’t honestly know if he’s the one I’ve wronged, but he’s the one who’s after me now, and with the small breadcrumbs I’m finding, it’s a good chance he is that same leader who…
/takes a moment to pause and breathe in deep/
Guess I better explain this shit to you so you all know what I’m talking about, right? … If anyone bothers to listen to this, that is.
Back when the Black Scythes were just beginning to come into power over the city - when I was younger, as was my wife. It was probably about… five years after we met? Must’ve been around that or ten, since my wife was, well, my wife and pregnant with our first child.
I told her. I fucking… /his voice becomes a bit teary and movement can be heard/ I fucking told her not to go out that night. I shouldn’t have…
/Another pause. Longer, filled with some heavy breathing./
Rose wanted t-to go out and patrol the territory. She used to do that back then, before this happened. Before she retired from anything outside of in-house work. I tried telling her to take the night off, but she wouldn’t have it. Three months into the pregnancy, she shouldn’t have been out at night. But, being the stupid stallion I was, I let her out anyways.
/He can be heard trying hard not to cry while telling this next part of the story./
She- she went out. Into an alleyway. Her mares had their backs turned, and th-that’s all he needed.
Broken Heart gang members came and they… They beat her. They beat Rose until she was almost dead, trying to send me a message and a threat. I found her body there when one of her girls came running back to me.
I can never forgive myself for letting her out that night. Because of it, we lost our first child, and I almost lost my lead mare.
/taking a moment to calm himself, his breath rumbles for a moment before he gets everything back in order/
I was furious. Young, furious, naive, and stupid. Bad combinations, all of them. Taking the information I had previously heard out of my son - who was a part of this gang - I had my men go out and exterminate every single one of them. It was a family run, gang. In my rage, I killed everyone.
I made that bastard pay.
Newspaper titles read ‘Bloodiest Gang Massacre Ever,’ where the Black Scythes had ‘lived up to their name, punishing those who had gone against them just as the reaper punishes the living.’
Those men whom I sent out, most of them have passed on by now. It was so long ago… though that reputation still proceeds us, and I kept up with extreme violence like that well until my accident. Although, none of them ever matched the extent of that one. Everyone in that lineage died. I committed genocide against an entire family tree…
Though… there was… one survivor.
The only one who fucking mattered. And he fucking got away, like it was nothing.
He tried to regroup and form his little ‘mafia’ again, but it wasn’t the same. No one wanted to be a part of the massacre. No one wanted to join a man who now was on the top of the Black Scythe’s hit list. I heard he went fucking nuts, but then suddenly he disappeared off the map. He and the few he managed to recruit back into his gang. All gone.
Without a trace.
Call it fucking speculation, but when a super soldier reappears with the same name of my famous enemy, I’d say something very fucking fishy is going on. Especially when his super solders are rumored to only be loyal to him, and there’s another rumor going around about how the human government is turning gangsters they find on the streets into super soldiers.
I can’t tell you what the super soldier program is completely, or why this guy’s name is Wajid, but I can tell you that if he is indeed the very same Wajid I wronged so many years ago…
I deserve everything he does to me.
