Mr. X described what happened when he touched found her and touched her dying body: "...truth be told, I wasn't truly born until that fateful day. The day I met her. As she lay there dying, my mind, as it was put to me, 'opened.' And with her final breath, all her thoughts, her dreams... everything she desired, everything she thought, everything she feared... were now mine. I sucked it all out of her like yolk from an egg. And I was truly alive for the first time. It was a feeling I would spend the rest of my days trying to capture."
