They need me to save them; just one look at their faces tells me as much. The journey Ive taken through my life has been an unusual one but Ive come to accept that this is where my destiny lies.
Going from orphan child fighting to get by on the streets to the new Messiah in a matter of months is a change great enough to make anyones head spin. Never before have I felt this wanted; this needed Felt useful and loved I have a purpose now. I know that this is my destiny and my duty. To walk amongst the weak and poor and help where I can. Bring hope and light and warmth to dying eyes.
My conjugation has grown and I now have followers in the thousand around the world. In the darkness of my mind I wonder if what they say are true; am I an angel like the white wings I proudly show says I am or am I something else? There have been rumours of beings, humans, normal humans of flesh and blood, evolving into something more Something with powers which can be mistaken for something out of this world No. I can show no doubt. I am their leader and their hope; they need me. I must be the angel and the saviour they say I am I have to be.
I can save these people Its both my right and my duty. I can save them I have to be able to save them. From poverty, hopelessness, oppression and pain even from themselves. Operating in the shadows, worshipped among my people I can build a better world. I know I can. Let people whisper in awe about the angel who has fallen to Earth; let them wonder and then then let them seek me out so I can show them that Im as real as my dream is real. It has to be real. Even among my worshipers I stand alone but I stand tall; this is my burden and my destiny. I have to make my dream come true one way or another. I can do this.
Come to me come closer. Come and kneel before me Come and bring me worship. I can bring you hope, I can bring you a dream Come to me.
I can bring you all salvation for I am an angel, fallen to Earth by Gods grace and mercy. Behold my powers and then come and join me in my fight for a place so much more and so much better than this. I know what is best; I know this world can be so much better than this.
I am the new Messiah who brings with him a dream of a better world that he must see come true.
It was hopefully clear that Scott had Warrens powers.
