Michael claims to be selling suicide to minors. With every exchange you can see the guilt and regret spawn across his face. Similar to the way I view my current form, he believes he has transformed into the entity he grew to despise. It pains me to hear him compare himself to the man that damn near ruined and ended his life. Introducing him to heroin and supplying him with what he swallowed in hopes of ending his life.
That’s in addition to that of many other ignorant, young souls that now lay forgotten in the dark. I try to provide reassurance that he will never be as horrible of a person as Erik.
I hope his sentence serves him well.
I know he never will spiral that far because the fact of the matter is that it is clear how much it pains him to do these things. He does them simply from necessity, entirely aware of the consequences of each pill and prescribes warnings with his hesitation. Erik, on the other hand, felt no remorse for his wrongdoings.
He fed the stigma and status to these lost children, recruiting them to do his dirty work and target an even younger audience to hook them in young on heroin.
Michael, you will never be as horrible a person as him.
