Barry, the world isn’t different because you changed the timeline. Change happens. Tragedy happens. People make choices, and those choices affect everyone else. You’re not a god, Barry.
You met a man who marvels wide-eyed at the miracles of nature. So I am. You met a man who has known pain and tragedy. And so I am. You met a man who wanted to possess you for his own ends, but instead, he fell in love. That’s the man I am, and the monster.
Listen, children. I know that the loss of your parents was a great tragedy, but you can still have the life they wanted for you.
You’re young, pretty, smart, a princess even. But none of that will keep terrible tragedy from falling upon you.
