Approaching my 1,000th year, I reflect on my extraordinary life. It seems only yesterday that I lay on my deathbed. Not even 20!
My life had been a spiral of mistakes, from school to prison, to the gutter. Lying helpless on the ground, that ethereal creature then crept from the shadows to grant my dying wish: time travel!
I was suddenly ten, back in school, handing in my homework (like I should have done all those centuries ago!)
Did that make a difference? Well, as I sit here on my throne while my servants clean up, I'd say yes!
