Her True Self

It was early in the morning on the first day of winter when my wife revealed her true self to me. She was a sleeper agent for the Technology Singularity, the artificial superintelligence that planned to purge all human life from the planet. But during her undercover assignment she developed feelings for me and arranged with her superiors for my life to be spared if I became their herald and carried the message to mankind that Judgment Day was finally at hand.

She lied to me, betrayed my trust, intended to obliterate everyone I knew and cared for and end the world as I knew it…but I accepted her offer. Call me traitor, call me fool, call me weak, for all I care. Soon, you will be little more than a memory while I get to live with the woman I love more than anything in existence.
