Under House Arrest:
There lies my Heart. Imprisoned. Tortured. It hasn't seen the light of day in many moons. The coup d'état took place approximately two years ago. On one fateful day, the Ego could not take it anymore. He flung the mamby pamby Heart into a cold and empty jail cell. "I'M IN CHARGE NOW!" And the rest is history...
The Heart still beats (rots) in a dark and damp cell. It's fed a ration of bread and water... only enough to survive. For kicks, the Ego likes water boarding him. It's a nice way of letting the Heart know exactly who is in charge. Hey, if it toughens him up a little... then a primary goal is achieved!
One day, a Champion will rise up to challenge and TAKE DOWN the Ego. It will take an asswhooping of epic proportions. When the Ego cries for mercy, the Champion must slay it! It will be worth it. The long suffering Heart will escape it's cruel imprisonment to see blue skies and abundant sunshine once again. AMEN. :)
Word to the Brave: Good luck. The battlefield is littered with dead bodies.
