Challenge #03864-J212: To Cease Evil

A mummer kept a slave, beaten and terrified, in their tower. The slave thought this mummer was actually Wraithvine, for they did not know better. The mummer, outside the tower, was completely different from inside. Then the real Wraithvine heard weeping in the tower. -- Anon Guest

Would you choose to suffer for the betterment of the world? Would you sacrifice for people you've never met? Would you surrender comfort? Would you surrender warmth? Would you endure as much as you could without dying?

Wraithvine told me I was selfish for wanting comfort. For wanting the barest minimum of food. For wanting more than just barely enough water to drink. In winter, I am selfish for wanting warmth. In summer, I am selfish for wanting a breeze.

Most days, I am selfish for wanting the pain to stop.
