Is this the way it will always be?

Maybe I have my share of friends. Marie, Napoleon, Florence, Ikkyu, Freud, Elizabeth, Joan, Hitler, Mozart. Sure, maybe there are some people who don't accept me because of who I am, but I have these friends. Right here beside me.

But…I'm not like them. I'm completely different.

Sure, they're all clones. Only copies of real life famous people, given the task to exceed their former life's achievements. They aren't given a choice. And that's why Pandora exists over Marie. And that's why Joan's life ended prematurely at the stake.

It's a tough life for them, I know it. I'm friends with Hitler. How is he supposed to exceed the supposed 'achievement' of his predecessor?

But, it's a tough life for me as well. I'm reprimanded everyday for my existence at school. Being the only human and all, I can't possibly understand their struggles.

And the existence of Kai has begun to circulate possibilities in my head. Could I potentially be a clone as well? And if so, of who? Kai isn't anyone famous or well known, plus he's still alive! Nothing makes any sense.

I thought maybe for a moment that if I truly was clone that maybe I could be accepted. But it still wouldn't make a difference. I'm still different from everyone else. I don't have any great achievements to strive for, clone or not. By purpose at school is still questionable.

My status as either a human or a clone is still unknown. But no matter what, I will always be an…

Outcast.

Is this the way it will always be?

I don't have any friends besides Shiro. People will always question my purpose for existing.

Ugh, why'd they make a clone of him? they ask.

Why is he even here? they ask.

Obviously they talk amongst themselves. No one every approaches me. I guess the only good thing about being the clone of Hitler is that no one picks on me directly because they're afraid I would find some way to kill them later.

I honestly don't know why I exist myself. Whose bright idea was it to clone Adolf Hitler, one of the worst people ever to breathe air? It's hard to concentrate on anything when that question circles my head. I'm sure everyone else thinks the same thing.

The only problem with me asking that question is that I am the clone.

Shiro has become my friend recently. He is similar to me, in that people question why he is here. He doesn't look at me funny or question why the hell I exist. He talks to me like he talks to the rest of his friends, and things started to look up for me.

But…time moves forward, and eventually I will have to ask myself what my true purpose for living is. All the clones here are to excel past their predecessor's previous achievement, so what am I to do? Is my goal truly to eliminate a whole race of people to create the 'perfect world'? That's absurd! I would never want to kill anyone! Why would I be cloned just to do something like that?

But I have never been told what my purpose is. My idea of greatness would be to be a great speaker, as the real Hitler was, but to speak on the side of good. Not to brutally eliminate a group or people because of their religious views, but teach people to be accepting of others and create a better world. I want to be the one to prevent wars, not start them. I wish to be great.

But is anyone going to see it that way? I could be a completely different person, but I'll always have the name of Adolf Hitler. Everyone will think that I have hidden motives and no one will listen. I am to be shunned for the rest of my life.

I will always be an…

Outcast.


Just learn to be accepting of others.
