Better Living Incorporated. (SpookOfNight)

Better Living Incorporated. The irony would have been hilarious, had it not been so painful. "Wonderful", people called it, "fantastic","a miracle", "a lifesaver."

The fools. The poor, deluded fools.

They didn't see beyond the flashing neon banners and images of happy families. They didn't see the cut-throats that stood at the backs of the smiling counsellors. They only saw what they were shown, and that was nothing. They didn't see me, either.

They had been told I was dead.
I wished it was true.

The End
