The Journal of Sophia Chevalier
Do not despair, and do not forget.
Have you ever experienced near death? You come so close to something so final, that even survival has a profound effect on you. Coming within touching distance of the flames of hell causes your skin to bubble. It smoulders and sears into your flesh leaving a mark, a scar upon your soul. A mark so unforgettable that you will carry it for the rest of your life; a mark that governs your every moment from its conception, forcing you to live in the shadow of the memory that put it there.
This is my memoir; call it my last Will and Testament, my closing statement to those lucky enough to be alive. If you’re reading this then you can safely assume I am no longer among the living. For the sake of all I pray you heed my words and remember them; for the day may come when they alone will save you. -Sophia Elizabeth Chevalier
