I see the irony of it, don't think that I don't. Spend your last days fightin' for freedom - or some twisted manifestation of it, at least - and what happens? Wind up a prisoner in my own afterlife. Or afterexistence 'cause I sure as hell ain't livin' it up where I am, I can tell ya. I weren't never a prisoner of war but I passed through Castle Thunder enough times to know that there ain't just one definition of the term. Prisoners there were cooped up in dirty cells, visited by soldiers who enjoyed taking their frustrations out on them Yankees a little too much and their one hope was to be left alone in their isolation.

Me? What I wouldn't give for some contact, even if it was just for a quick punch down. At least it would be a way to keep my mind alive, to prove to myself that I haven't drifted off where no-one can find me. Hell, I'd probably jump at a chance to be confined in a cell! At least then you know where ya stand...You're in those four walls and there ain't no getting out. Here I got walls, probably 8x2, that even I can't see but damn do I know they're there. Confinement is one thing but being trapped in the same cubic space for over 100 years and being able to see the world change around you...it's a fresh kinda torture.

Even the folks here that can see me don't pay me any mind. Most of the other purgatorios ain't exactly great company so I can live without that, so to speak. But angels and demons are comin' up (or down) here all the time collectin' their charges and the least they could offer is a "Hey, don't worry, we haven't forgotten you exist!" Course, I've become an inconvenience to 'em now. I'm the glitch in the paperwork that everyone hopes if they ignore it, it will go away. Not gonna happen! This may not be a prison I can break out of but if they think I'm just gonna resign myself to this...ghost world of a hell then they've got another thing comin'! I'm not letting myself get trapped in my own head like the rest of 'em. I will see this through to the end, dammit, no matter what the hell that might be.
