"Xan? Xan is that you...?"


"Oh God. Oh God... w-who are you? Xander!"

"Now, now, Adrian." Laughter. "There's no need to scream."

Oh no, oh God no... Not him, anyone but him.


Run. How am I supposed to run?! How the hell do I get away?!

"You didn't think I wouldn't find you, silly boy? You had to know I'd come for you eventually."

Mommy! No!


"What's it like, Adrian? All alone in your dark little world?" A rustle. "Do you remember colors? Light?"

"Get-get back!"

"Do you remember my face? You put me in prison, but I, I put you in your own little version of hell."

"You killed them..."

"Yes, yes I killed them. Mommy and daddy and big sister. Have you forgotten their faces, yet? Do you remember the fire? Their screams? They begged for their lives-"

"Stop it!"

"Don't you get it, silly? I'm not going to stop. Not until I get what I want."

"...Wh-what do you want?"

"You of course. Little Adrian Haven, the last. My last." Click. "My unfinished business."


"That's right, beg. Beg for your life, just like your family you snivelling little brat."

"Xander'll kill you."

"Xander, Xander, Xander. You really think I'm afraid of your muscle-bound, half-wit bodyguard?"

God.. God, I don't want to die. Not like this.

"You should consider this a mercy."



"Oh... oh G- oh God... X-Xan? XAN?"

Sigh. "It's okay, kiddo. It's over now."
