CALLIOPE: oh. CALLIOPE: i'd want to listen to as mUch as possible! CALLIOPE: in whatever amoUnt of time i have, if yoU please. CALLIOPE: from the true beginning, then, and moving swiftly. CALLIOPE: i began the same as you. CALLIOPE: vulnerable, weak, but without the comfort of others, to whom those flaws would endear me. CALLIOPE: so i became strong, and killed my brother. CALLIOPE: i wore him down. i ate his soul. i dressed my words in his blood to hear victory every time i spoke. CALLIOPE: i consumed his strength, too. it was always in me, just as yours was in him. CALLIOPE: but being strong was not enough.
