Trouble Lurking 25/100

To Whom This May Concern,

By now,  you have obviously noted that I am no longer with this world. The trouble lurking around the corner will now have taken my life. It seems to be waiting for something, an order. I only have a short time to explain to you everything that you need to know. The most important is do not let them catch you.
They came to our world with promises of a better life, one with knowledge and peace. They claimed to be Angels sent to bring a world into a golden era. Wars would no longer be fought and we would now have the knowledge to live with one another in peace. It seemed too good for many of us; we were not willing to look the gift horse straight into the mouth. We should have; it was too good to be true. At first, everything seemed to be going for the better. Wars ended, everyone began to live in equality, and the world seemed to be a better place. For the first time in a long time, everything seemed to be going forward for the world. We were all excited and thankful for our Angel friends. However, it was too good to be true. What goes up, must always come down.
Strange things began to happen. People began to hear demonic whispers in the night and many began to get terrifying visions of a dark and bloody world. Even I got these visions; they were terrible. I almost thought I was going to kill myself during one of them. Sleep was even worse; the nightmares were frightening. It was almost like you were trapped in your own version of hell. During one, I had started scratching my forearms so badly, I ended up going to the hospital. I was not the only one. People began to show up at the hospitals more often and many, well many could not endure the strain. It was all too much; both sleep and reality was hell. We asked the Angels for answers. They told us not to worry. They told us things had to get worse before they go better.
Things began to go steadily downhill after that. People began to die and it was becoming clear that the Angels were not our friends. They were the ones who were behind this and there was nothing we could do to stop them, except run.  People would die because their souls had been taken. The soul is what keeps your body alive; it is what animates your body. It was terrible to see those who had dyed. Their faces would be contorted in masks of fear and their bodies would be ripped open. It was a bloody and cruel scene to look open. We began to demand answers from the angels. We wanted to know who they were. We wanted to know where they were from. We wanted to know what they wanted from us. Do you know what they answered?

We only want your soul.
