OUT OF TIME
"We are the Watchers. We have been Watchers since before the dawn of time. We watch mankind. We were the chosen ones. We were Angels. Then God gave us Free Will. We used it to rebel against Him and became Fallen Angels.
My name is Greg – short for Gregory or Grigori, as the Greeks called us. The Ancient Greeks thought we were angels while other people called us Demons. I guess it all boils down to who is actually telling the story, right?
Today, I’m telling the story so let’s just say I’m an angel. And I have some pretty cool friends, too. Some of my closest buddies are Kesabel, the Second Angel; Gadrel, the Third Angel, and Kasyade, the Fifth Angel. You will get to know all of them better in due time, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
So, where was I?... Oh, yeah! I was introducing myself…
My name is Greg, I’m a Watcher and I have been around for longer than anybody can remember. Even longer than I can remember. And, you know, after some millennia, time becomes irrelevant. It’s just a convention that Humans seem to be so attached to. People like to count time and discuss it, create schools of thought about it. They fight over it. They live and die and kill for it. They write prose, poetry and music about it. They talk about the past, the present and the future but these concepts mean very little to immortal beings like me. So why am I so desperate because I’m running out of time?"
