The room was cold. I couldn't focus my thoughts. I knew where they were now. Somehow, we could stop them, but already they have stopped me... I was sitting in this cold room with a psychologist that I knew was one of them.
"Hello, Hireki. It seems that you're having trouble distinguishing what's real and what's in your mind. Is that correct?" she asked me.
I nodded slowly. There seemed to be no way out of this. If I tried to run, she'd probably say that I should be sent to a mental institution, or maybe they'd get one of the homeless guys to kill me. What do I do?! I asked myself in fear... Suddenly, a booming voice answered me. Tell her the truth, Hireki. I could only guess that the voice was God leading my lips to speak. All fear left my body. I sat up and looked that psychologist in the eyes.
I said calmly, "I have no trouble distinguishing reality with fantasy. I know the truth, and I won't be stopped."
"Oh?" the psychologist asked. "Then, tell me everything you believe."
I knew that this was what she was waiting for. They wanted to know how much about them that I knew. The information I gave her from this point on would result in the fate of me and everyone I was close to. Tell her the truth, Hireki. "I believe that in this world, there is a group of people. That group is so large, that it covers not only one country nor nation, but encompasses every major country all over the world. It is not a cult. It's become so big that it secretly influences many cultures. The types of people in this group range from homeless people to the wealthiest of men and women.
There is no escaping this group's eye. They are all around us: in our schools, at our jobs, even in our households... You can never really know exactly who they are unless they tell you, and that rarely happens."
The psychologist looked at me with a smile on her face. "There's no truth in that, Hireki. That's just a figment of your imagination, but I'll ask you one last question... Why are you trying to stop them?"
I thought for a while, then stood from my seat. I walked towards the psychologist, leaned over, and whispered in her ear, "Because they've tampered with my religion. Easter, Christmas, Sunday worship. Do you really think that all of these were mixed with Pagan traditions just to make them feel comfortable with joining the church? The word Sunday was even used in reference to worshiping the Sun god, not my God. They've been tampering with everything around us for centuries...
The people of this world have become so accustomed to these twisted traditions, politics, and lifestyles, that they've considered this to be the norm..."
I backed away from her ear to see the expression of her frozen face. "There is a better norm out there, and once I finally break down that group of demons, the true reality will be revealed."
The psychologist stood up from her chair with a frozen look on her face that terrified me and showed me how deeply I got to her. Her lips moved, "You don't know what you're getting this world into if you stop us... For centuries, we've been creating this culture; this society called the world. If you break us up, there's no telling how the condition of the world and its cultures will be..."
"I'm willing to take that risk."
"But are the people willing?"
"The truth must be shown."
"Your name is Hireki... It's symbolic that your name means 'to reveal'. Have you ever heard of the old saying 'The grass always seems greener on the other side'?"
As we peered into each other's eyes, I thought about that word. It stung my mind with a sharp, but sudden doubt. As soon as it came, it quickly vanished. What I'm doing is right. No matter how different it will be when this new norm comes. It will ALWAYS be GREENER than the world we're in right now... It will always be greener on the other side...
