You flourished in shadows, disappearing into them at will. At first, this was an accidental discovery, but then, it became a way of life for you. Often a head would turn, deceived eyes imagining they invented the figure standing in darkness.
It was the light that undid your secrets. It brought forth all that you hid and displayed it naked for any to behold. That is why you embraced the shadows and night, slipping unnoticed through the unseen void, disintegrating like smoke.
You were a voyeur, a shade, watching the lives of others as you pondered over your strange ability that seemed to be yours alone. Then, you intervened on behalf of a stranger, rescuing them from misfortune. No one recognized your hand in their salvation, and you found yourself a specter capable of twisting lives, even fates, at whim. Looking from the stillness of your cloaked world, you observed the city anew—each block its own conquest.
