In a way, I did cause all this. Does that make me the villain?
| None of this was supposed to happen. I never meant for all of this; the bloodshed, death and chaos. I was just a
hungry girl --desperate to survive. Yes, I stepped one foot into the wrong road. Does that give you the right to blame me? I'm
not saying that I should have done it. I know I shouldn't have. Even so, wouldn't you have done the same? I saw my brother
and even my parents starving. I watched them as they slowly slipped away, right before my eyes.
I guess I could have been the hero. I could have been the girl who saves her family from starvation and even
death. No, I could never be the hero. You must know that I never meant for everyone to die like this.
In one way, it seems like I caused all of this, and in some ways it's true, but does that make me a villain? Am I
evil? No. I don’t believe that. All I did was save myself from this swamp that I was slowly sinking into.
For once you won't be told about the perfect hero who did nothing wrong and swooped in to save everyone. You
won't be meeting the celebrity everyone loves, has loved and always will love. No. You're stuck with me. I’m the girl who just
made an honest mistake. But even so, I’m still the girl who everyone says is the villain.
