Everything dies. It’s a simple truth; everyone knows it. What no one knows is what lies in store after you pass on. I had always thought that after death there was only peace –it was the final ending. But it seems that the reality is quite the opposite. When I emerged in my new post-death world, I was suddenly expected to bear the weight of the world on my shoulders (and I’m hardly even exaggerating), and if I don’t, I will not only risk the lives of everyone still living, but I might also get to have the awesome experience of being devoured by demons. Wish me luck, because it seems that death is where all the action is.
