You might look like a beast, or maybe you control rats and spiders, or perhaps you are uglier than a witch, but you are a monster, at least in the eyes of most people. It's not your fault, of course, this happens to one in every thousand people or so, maybe a little more or less in some places, and really most people don't have it so bad, do they?
Maybe we should rewind. At some point in your life, maybe when you were born, or when you hit puberty, or just some random day, you got powers. That would be so awesome! Iiiif they hadn't made you into the monster you are. People avert their eyes when you pass, and frankly jobs that will take you are not the highest position, usually. Sure, you're not technically allowed to discriminate, but can you blame people? Look at yourself!
Well, you still live a relatively normal life, but a few weeks ago you got a flier for an anonymous help group for people like you, and why not? Tonight's the first night and it's not like you had plans to go out anyway.
