Vincent started remembering something... something from his past... something that was long forgotten and something that should have never been remembered.
7th December 1998
A kid said
"Look mom! I made a snowman!"
"Oh wow! That is a really nice snowman!"
"Do you like it?"
That wasn't Vincent and his mom. Vincent was the one destroying the snowman.
"Mom! The snowman just died!" cried the kid
"Oh no! Who would have done that!"
"I did it! Look at me!" said Vincent with a proud smile
"But mom, there is no one else here."
"Don't cry! I'll help you rebuild it!"
"Thanks mom." sobbed the kid
"I am right here! I did it! Hahahaha are you mad?" shouted Vincent
But no one responded or made any gesture that they noticed him.
"W-Why... Why is everyone ignoring me? Why just me?"
The smile disappeared from Vincent's face and tears filled his eyes as he ran away. He ran and ran and ran until he arrived at the place he called 'home'. And his 'home' was a carboard box near a dumpster in a dark small alley.
"I am home!'
"Oh kitty, there you are! What did you do while I was gone?"
"Why am I crying? Haha I am not? crying! There is something in my eye, that's all. Anyway, you must be hungry right? Here let's eat this bread!"
Sadness, loneliness, pain, coldness and starvation these were the emotions that Vincent was experiencing when he was just 10 years old. While the other kids were playing , he was all alone. The only companion he had was a cat. When he picked up the cat mask something inside his brain made him remember this part of his past. And with those memories, something bad also came...
"Hahahaha" laughed Vincent "I remember now, why I do what I do! How could I have forgotten something this important?"
A big smile appeared on Vincent's face. And it wasn't the same smile from when he met Sophie, or from when he met the mysterious attacker. It was a evil smile, one that might just cover the entire planet. One that was saying "Look at how happy I am and how sad are you!".
20th December 1998
"I am back!"
"Huh? Kitty? Where are you?"
But the cat wasn't in her usual spot. The cat or Kitty, how Vincent was calling her, was always sleeping near the cardboard box. But on this day the cat wasn't there. Vincent, worried, started looking for her.
"Hey Kitty! Where are you?" shouted while he was walking on the streets.
Unfortunately, he didn't find the cat on that day. He searched almost without stop the next days too but it was all for nothing. He tried asking strangers if they have seen a cat nearby but no one ever responded.
25th December 1998
After searching for 5 days, when he was almost ready to give up, he found her. But it wasn't a happy reunion.
"Oh! I found you! Finally!"
"Kitty? I am right here!"
The cat wasn't responding. Kitty didn't even look his way.
"Not you too! You were the only one who was close to me! Don't become like everyone else Kitty!"
In reality, Kitty was never close to Vincent. She was just happy to receive food from a mysterious force near that cardboard box. She never saw or noticed Vincent's presence, no one did back then.
