This is just a teaser for my new Clato story Ruthless. The first chapter release date will come later. Hopefully you all are excited as I am!
My dad taught me to be ruthless. To drop all concepts and let the mind become blank. He taught me that war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength. He taught how people thought that they knew stuff, but in reality they knew nothing. People are idiots, and that in itself is dangerous. People want to construct their own thoughts and experiences from multiple sources, though I wanted to learn from myself. Though, now I realize that power is ruthless and truth is deaf, yet I crave so strongly for both. I find something breathtaking in how one can be cunning, be ruthless. One thing that I do know, however, is that on the inside everyone is a beast, though some are stronger than others. And apparently Cato and I, standing across the ring prepared to fight in the district two training center, were the strongest beasts of them all. As all eyes are on us, disputes on who is going to win, I know that one movement is popular. So as my hand reaches down to curl around my knife, four words cross through my head. What the hell dad.
