I let out a sigh as I stare out of the window. I never imagined that things would turn out this way. However, I suppose it was for the best; I can’t go back in time and fix it now.
Nothing but skyscrapers fill the sky; my office is in the tallest building in the city, so just looking out of my window makes me feel like I’m looking down from in the clouds. I can barely make out even the simplest of details about the people walking along the ground, but I can see waves of cars speeding through the narrow streets. As I’m looking down at the streets, my eyes catch a glare on the glass and a clear image appears in front of me.
A white suit and tie outfit with black stiletto high heels, shoulder length dark brown hair pulled back into a tight ponytail, and emerald green eyes hidden behind black rimmed seeing glasses. The woman in the reflection folds her arms under her chest and puts on a cynical smile that sends chills down my spine.
“Look at you, CEO of an amazing pharmaceutical company dedicated to ‘healing the inner pain of everybody.’”
A painful churning sensation arises in my stomach. I look at the woman and give my reply.
“A pharmaceutical company is suppose to help citizens with any ailments and issues they may have. We’re the backbone for the medical industry when somebody can’t afford to see medical professionals.”
“Is that why you ask unsuspecting people to join ‘experimental drug tests’ for various illnesses? You and I both know that’s just a cover up for something much more important.”
I can’t fathom the words that this woman speaks. Not because I’m unaware of what she’s saying, but… I have a split moment of doubt, but I bring myself back and keep arguing with the woman.
“Everybody who joined experimental drug programs knew all of the facts before going into the program. All we wanted to do was figure out the side effects and results of different drugs on a wide array of diseases, both physical and mental. We’re doing this for the well-being of the entire world!”
The woman in the glass points straight at me in a fit of rage, “Bullshit! You know your true intentions are a lot more sinister than your public facade!”
“You have no idea what you’re talking about!”
The window glass begins rapidly cracking, branching out from around the woman. Even though she’s in the mirror, she starts taking steps towards me, that smile still on her face.
“I don’t know what I’m talking about? I know exactly what I’m talking about! I know everything, seen everything. Why?” She throws her hands up into the air and bears her fanged teeth, “Because I’m the Grand Conductor behind the approaching Symphony of Madness and Despair that will lead to my rule!”
