My name is Roconn Romano. I am a vampire, the very first of my kind, turned by the Devil itself. I have been forty-nine years old since the thirteenth of December, in the year one thousand three hundred and fifteen. I have a story to tell you, one that may shake the very foundations on which we live. I am going to reveal to you, the truth about God, who he really is. I’ve had many years to draw my conclusion, if you would but spare some of your time to hear my reasoning. It began many years ago, like you, I saw only the righteousness and the truth of my faith. I’d served my whole life as one of the Lord’s faithful servants. At the moment, as I sit at my desk, writing these words for you, my wife readies herself for the cinema. We are going to watch a film, yet another of my many depictions that have surfaced over the years. What I’m going to tell you will undoubtedly cause a lot of confusion, maybe anger. Some will call me a blasphemer, but I am going to tell you the true story, what really happened.
