"It makes me happy"

It's amazing how much those four little words mean. Those four little words can make you smile, make you fall in love, make you feel like you're at the top of the world. But for the first time in her life, those words make her feel sick and horrified and disgusted at the horror of the human race. What sort of man finds pleasure from hunting people down, savagely murdering them and eating them until there's nothing left but a carcass? It wasn't aliens, wasn't monsters…they were humans. Normal, everyday humans. And they slaughtered seventeen people without a sense of remorse. Who does that?! Who can do that and not regret a single moment of it?!

They may as well be monsters.
