A metaphor of ages past that not all things can everlast, for if such was the way things were then nothing new would come for sure.

New things keep you on your toes and ready to see how things will go, since no one like a boring day where everything's a bland cliche.

You're in such a rush to get out of the rain, a great big hurry made for such little gain; I bet if you stopped to think for a bit about why being wet is so dearly unfit that you'd simply give up and remit your flight and stay to enjoy nature a bit tonight.

Why run to home; what's there for you?
Is it really that bad to make one into two?
Why not turn back, change course, and see things through...
Go meet your strange watcher, have them to pursue.

A sordid sight to say the least, like some rabid beast came forth released; best make sure the family isn't fleeced and the danger has ceased.

With luck you'll find despite the mess and general distress,
That you'll find not only your guests that destroy and transgress,
But your missing family unharmed and bless'd by the gentler side of fate's smooth caress.

To worry is to falter
To falter is to fail.

Cellphones are luxuries your family cannot afford,
You turn towards something that has you floored,
The plain fish in the tank is no longer unadorned,
"Little one, it is too late to be just warned,
But there was a dark being with a glowing red eye,
Your parents are gone and I fear you will die.
The building is not safe any longer,
You must survive and become stronger,
There are powers at play beyond this plane,
In this rain, awaits you pain." "This is insane!"

You close your eyes and try to breathe,
but if the fish is right--your emotions seethe.
"Little one, get out of here."
It's harder to see with every ____.

Keep this in mind - Do not panic!

Go to your room. Swiftly, true,
but remember, careful too.

to keep yourself all safe indeed.

The closest door brings you to the kitchen first,
Where you find your mother, looking her very worst,
On the floor while making tomorrow's school meal,
Not even the fGhost Sheriff you've wanted can heal
What has happened, despite her efforts today,
The fish wasn't lying and you are not okay.

First thing please, child, look away.

Any good friends that you know?
A trusted relative to tell
of the trouble that befell

your mother? Still I would suggest
you go to your room and get dressed
in the warm clothes mentioned before,
then out again through the back door.

The worst has come to pass, it seems;
Dead on the ground, it seems, it seems.
Anger and fear together, it teems;
Welling together it teems, it teems.

A chorus of screams, red blood that gleams; why your nerves must be on the verge of extremes.

Sit back, relax, there's nothing you can do.
All you can do now is see things through.
Whatever is out there,
Whatever remains,
It's weapon is fear; it's terror that reigns.

Do not fall prey; do not look away.
What you see here you must face on this day.
For your family and friends, and all who survive;
You must steel yourself, you must stay alive.

So cast off false pretenses,
And all signs of doubt.
Man your defenses,
And get ready to scout.

You are not safe, and you are not alone;
Find the wicked, and through it's blood atone.
You owe it to those lost,
As well as those found,
Show them what it means to be crossed.

Your senses drain.

But a twist in fate did change the game.

To home you ran at the quickest pace,
But perhaps your mistake was your great haste.

You take a kitchen knife, your lunchbox and what you could think to grab to eat and drink without vomiting or crying too much. You scamper through the house and make it to your bedroom. You dump your textbooks on the desk and stop hugging your Sheriff fGhost to try and assess the situation. It's raining out, so you put on a raincoat. You put your food in the backpack, and set the knife down. All of your plushies don't bring you comfort today. You break down and cry on the corner of your bed.

Where can you go? That's not easy to say. You have only been in this family a couple of years.

They were your foster parents. Your foster siblings, and possibly their real children, are older and you just got your own room.

You could go to your "Aunt Sharon's" place. She's not technically your aunt, but this family has been extremely nice to you. You could also try to go to your friend's house. You all her Bean. The closest police station is fairly far away. Your only other option would be going to your teacher's house. Mrs. Riddlesperger had helped you through a lot since you started school.

You now need to decide on the where,
Then hope that you can make it there.

right now, though friends are fine indeed.

Well well well, what have we here?
I'm sorry dear child, but you must remain here
Or risk bringing harm to those you endear
It's tough, I know, to swallow the fear.

Get to the phone, you have no time to waste;
Call up everyone you can, with all post-haste.
Let everyone know of your dire straight;
Let everyone know what might await.

It's better to remain here, for all it's worth.
Who knows what this situation might have unearthed?
Lighting rarely strikes the same spot on earth
So here would be best to give a wide berth.

Whatever caught your family caught them unaware,
So please keep that in mind.
The best you can do is let everyone beware,
So that they can respond in kind.

Though the tragedy is great, and unknown is your fate, the simple fact remains:
This is your home; there's no need to roam; I'm sure you have the brains.

This is your Alamo; your stand of the Spartan.
This is where David stood up to Goliath.
Hold strong,
Hold fast,
Stand tall,
Stand true.

There's no cause for worry when we're right here with you.

Your current goal is to make it to Bean's house. However if you can get a hold of a phone before then, it might help. You take hold of the knife and step out of your room and into the hallway. You close the door behind you, not wanting to leave behind all your precious collectible stuffed animals.

Your body freezes for a split second. That isn't blood. It's a hand or at least something similar enough to one. It is attached to an arm, which is attached to a body. Your eyes open wider and you grip your knife tight, racing across the hall into the bathroom and closing it behind you.

Tonight is looking quite the fright.

Ask through the door, but do not tarry.

Keep an escape or curtain close,

the curtain serves to pin it down,
keep it blind and flailing 'round.

You stumble to the ground and you pick up your backpack and the knife. Almost as soon as you start to scamper to the sidewalk you see another one of those red creatures with no jaws. It doesn't seem to notice you yet. Its legs make it oh so very tall, and its arms are lengthy and slender. You hear a crashing noise from the bathroom in the house you abandoned. You run as fast as you can towards Bean's place.

You rush into Bean's house and explain you need to use a phone. Bean hands over her cell phone and explains that land lines are oh so obsolete.

You hurry and dial 4-4-4, and the phone rings once and crackles. Someone answers, so you begin to tell your address and that your parents are dead, before you are cut off with a wet raspy voice.

"No one can help you from us, child. The Watcher sees all. My name is Doctor _______. You will be mine, the question is how many people will you get killed beforehand?"

The line cuts off, and the phone service is dead. The display is a fuzzy red.

You stand there holding the phone, Bean is very concerned, "What'th wrong? Why do you have the knife, ________?"

Find the police. You can't stay here. Right now it's for Bean's life you should fear.
No. 129121 ID: 3a4593

First we will need to come up with a plan.
Be careful and run out as fast as you can,
after you tell Bean to ask mom and dad,
to go to a hotel, a temporary pad.

Tell her someone scary is on the loose.
That safety is distant, time tightens the noose.
Then leave here, escape on the path back to school.
Perhaps the red-eyed fellow is not a fool
in regards to these happenings. Find him and see
how you can fight the Watcher or break free.

If you go to the police I am afraid you will find
yourself and dear Bean in an even greater bind.

surely your smile will turn into a frown.
Explain to Bean what has happened to you, and then,
flee from this house, don't forget to bring your friend.
That umbrella you dropped, the boy in black you saw,
Seek them out, or perish in an evil red maw.

"Bean, my parents are dead, and I can't even get a hold of anyone to help from your cell." Bean's expression seems like she wants what you are saying to be a joke, but over time she seems to express and react from what is going on. "I don't know what's going on, but I need to go. You need to get away from me and hide. I don't want you to die because of me, you are my best friend."

"I just don't understand, ________, why would someone want to kill you and your family? What did you do?" Bean is very upset. So are you, having to tell her of your situation has brought you both to ____s.

"I would bring you with me, but it doesn't even look like they want anyone but me. I'm going to try and find this doctor."

Bean sobs and wraps her arms around you. You use one arm, you keep the knife away.

Your quest to try a phone is at an end,

Lose him, search for the stranger and make him pay.

You value your friend more than your own personal fears right now. You go to the door, and throw it open, diving through the horror's legs. You catch yourself with one hand and recuperate.

Grossly outnumbered, one-hundred to one

How much different can they really be, then?
Except, of course, how much blood they need.

An eye for an eye,
Ten lives for a life.
Cry a sweet tear
And brandish your knife.

He'll be your companion,
For as long as you need;
He'll wipe away all your fear,
As long as you let him feed.

A grisly reminder, before you go;
Those around you will die.
No matter friend or foe,
I'm not going to lie:

You're a danger to yourself and others.

Will you give into the rage?
Succumb to circumstance?
Will blood stain the page?
Like a grisly romance?

The next horror to you is mostly denied,
Its left hand stabs into your chest,
Something grows, and begins to nest.

There's three closing in, and more surround,
The desire to fight, to stand your ground,
Something inside of you guides your blade,
A strength behind your weapon of kitchen grade.

You look around the room, but it's hard to move. You are heavily restrained, and barely dressed. Your eyes finally open, and there's a strange man wrapped in messy bandages in front of you. You recognize the voice from the phone.

You decide to act possessed, but the Doctor merely cackles in response.

"Surely you felt it, little one,
When your knife was making life undone,
There's a killer in you I want myself,
Surgery to put myself on the Gods' shelf."

You're bald so I can access your brain,
Not planning to rape you, though I am insane,
I have The Builder's eye, ablessing indeed,
But I want The Builder's arms, be it greed,
That I pursue. To see, create and destroy,
I have to take them from you, like a toy,
Swiped from a defenseless child. You'll live,
If I allow you to, that I can promise to give.

Only that.
Maybe his hat."

The horror seems to lose his joyous posture at the notion of losing his fine hat. You shiver from the cold, and the pain in what feels like a powerful infection in your chest.

"Then again, I suppose your life is meaningless,
So I might find a reason to kill you, but here I digress."

The horror cheers up. You being dead means he gets to keep his hat.

While the horror's monocle pops clear off.

Your senses blur as you feel such strength. You begin to see butterflies at great length. The doctor remains extremely calm, you growl angrily, he killed your mom.

What Mneme said! Go out, see Bean.
I hope her instincts were quite keen.
Those monsters, they may have been mean.
At least you had fled the scene.

Bean is still your best friend, of course. She comes over to your place and you play games. You don't completely depend on her for your collection anymore. It keeps growing.

The games Bean wanted to play as a team,
You enjoy them a lot more, it would seem.


And before we fade out on our story,
Anything from Apathy and all his glory?
The house is safe and Serenity is happy and well,
What of the Pitfighter do you want him to tell?

Silly sir Delta, a mistake I've detected.
Those controllers both have a wire connected.
The Playstation 3 has few games, it is true,
but what they are playing is Playstation 2.

Anyway, I agree with Samefag (Or Not).
What happened to Apathy before this plot?

Apathy: How do you spend your spare time? Do you have a job?

It's been several years since the incident you are thinking of.

You spent a while feeling miserable and living in the gutters of cities.

She had lied to you before, especially when it would hurt you, so you finally decided to investigate for yourself. You checked the hospitals.

It took some time, but being the possible father someone eventually told you that she had been in with due child twice. The first was put up for adoption.

So you scoured the Orphanages and adoption agencies. It took a couple years before you managed to find her.

You couldn't just go in and ruin her life, so you've just been keeping a protecting eye on her for months. Just watching your butterfly.

But now you have each other to take care of. You're working hard in a warehouse with a prosthetic arm.

There's a knock on the door.

Open the door.

Were you expecting anyone?
Perhaps it's time to have some fun.
Either way you must know more.
Go ahead and get the door.

After the knock on the door, it only takes a few seconds for it to open. Inside the door stands a tall furry touched with grey hair and an eye patch, and a little girl. I lower my cigarette slowly now that I have their attention.

"How can I help you?" The man asks me, no surprise to me, he's never seen me before in his life.

"Excuse me for bothering you, I am Kuiskata Tywyll, but you can call me Detective Tywyll. I'm here for a pending investigation, and since you two are involved with the case surrounding Doctor Sincere, I was hoping you could answer a few questions for me."
