Some people think that the worst thing in the world is something trivial. Maybe a heartbreak. Maybe a dead end job. Maybe being poor. Maybe even death. But when your world gets turned around, and your life changes in a hearbeat, you realize, those things are trivial. Because in that reversed world, theres no one to love, no jobs, no money, and no death. All that matters in that world is power. The people with power instantly become famous. Better than any president, rock star, anyone. But with power, so much more crap comes with. And i was that powerful. I even ad the attitude. The one that said 'i know im rich and and now im gonna look down on you becaus you arent.' Life was... well.. not exactly good, but it didnt suck either. At least, until they discovered who i was. Then it got worse. I became what i had looked down on. I joined the unending ranks of The Forgotten.
