City of Souls

Can a city possibly have a negative, sinister legacy?
London used to be a heartfelt city, until one person entered the streets of London, and turned everything to ice with the bitter chill of his soul. He clutched the lives of many, and stole their futures.
London has become the City of Souls.
Entry into the Create A Legacy competition, please listen to the song I have attached to this as you read it, it only adds to the atmosphere. I wrote this story as I listened to it. Hopefully, we will share the same images I see in my head. Word count 1489.

1. City of Souls

I’d never thought I’d return. I never thought I’d get the chance. This town had everything from luscious grass and well grown crops to a booming economy and incredible technology. Until one person, dressed in a long black coat and top hat, entered the streets of London, and turned everything to ice with the bitter chill of his soul. He clutched the lives of many, and stole their futures. 

He was a man of many words, a clever man, so they said. He’d lurk in the night, grasp a being and with ease, he would snap their neck. Without thought, without emotion, he took what wasn’t his.

And like a collector, in many ways, he stored their spirits in jars, memories of many, and locked them away forever.  

With the doings of one man, the life of London perished and ceased to exist. Now only barren lands and ruins stand in place. So easily, the city has been forgotten, no longer populated, no longer there

Because of one man, London has become the City of Souls.
