Deimos Perennial 2127: The Day Death Came For Us All
as reported in the pages of Galactic Wrestling Illustrated
I remember that day...I remember that day that Death came for us all. The beginning of another exciting year in the GWF, the Deimos Perennial, where feuds are settled, and feuds are born. But nothing was born that day, only death, chaos and destruction. Yes, I remember that day.
You may ask what my thoughts are. My only thoughts are about those that lost their lives. Many of my friends in this business. But not just this business, throughout the galaxy, throughout the universe, for the Black Death came to claim us all. Why I was spared, while my brother was not, I may never know. Why my sister in law was spared, while her son turned into a raging lunatic, hell-bent on slaughtering her other children, finally being put down by her husband, the child's father, I may never know. But I do know this one thing: This galaxy, no, this UNIVERSE, must come together to combat this Black Death.
I remember that day clearly. And I hate what happened that day, solemnly, fearfully. I remember that day.
Here is my story about The Day that the Black Death came for us all...
I was ready to report on the annual Deimos Perennial, the GWF's huge PPV, opening the new year with new wrestlers, new feuds, new angles, and new battles. Just as the show was beginning to get started, new Commissioner, Euritar, was on his way to the ring for an announcement. That is when the chaos began.
Just as Euritar was about to step into the ring, a blinding flash of light struck everyone in the arena temporarily blind. As our vision came back into focus, standing in the ring was the man who came to be known as Harbinger. Slithering next to him was Balaal, and flanking the two of them were the eight wrestlers who had recently converted to the Black Death.
Harbinger stated that the End of Days was upon us, and that the Black Death was only the beginning. With that, a crackle of electricity, black electricity, shot across the arena, inflicting instant death to several thousand fans all at once. The building began to sway, the very foundations of the Deimos InterGalactic Arena shook, as many other fans went into a berserk-like rage. Brawls erupted over the smoldering bodies, violent fights everywhere. Later, I had learned that these wild, uncontrolled brawls and fights were happening all over the cosmos, preceded by the black lightening strikes, just as it happened in our location.
Billions died instantly by the black lightening strikes, millions more across the universe by the mindless, violent fighting and brawls. The universe seemed to quake, quiver, if you will, as the Black Death fully entered our realm of existence. The end truly felt like it was upon us. Death had finally came for us all, it seemed.
I remember looking up into the ring, the horrors all around, and seeing only the purple-red glow of the eyes of Harbinger, those eyes, those evil, evil eyes...twinkle in the chaos, they seemed to...smile...out of the hood that shrouded his face. I will never forget those eyes, to my dying day, to the very last breath, those eyes will forever haunt my nightmares, for I no longer have pleasant dreams.
What the others were doing, I could not tell you. I was too transfixed on those eyes to look anywhere else. One thing I do remember, though, I remember hearing a voice echoing in my mind, threatening to shatter any sanity I may have been holding onto. In my mind, I could see a formless shape, dark, brooding, three of them in a dark and cold mist. The Three, at least, that is what I am assuming since I have listened to The Guardian give information, was speaking to me. I cannot repeat what was said, for I fear that those words they spoke will come true. And my greatest fear is that they will. But I will say this...if The Three are permitted to enter into our realm, our dimension, then death would be too good for us. Death would be too pleasant for us. Death would only be the beginning for us.
I remember that day, I remember that day that Death came for us all...
