Old Ghosts

I'm stupid. Goddammit I am so stupid sometimes.

I left the hotel room for five minutes and I ended up running into Jake.

He's not the same as before. I can at least tell you that. He's just out for blood the only reason I'm alive is because of Glyph.

I decided to leave the hotel room for a bit on account of being stuck in one for the passed week. I was getting a bit stir crazy so I needed some fresh-air. Well I got to the gas station with no problem but when I was leaving I noticed someone walking behind me.

I turned at at first I didn't notice him because it was so dark out. He waved and I waved back. I was more concerned he was one of Glyph's people.

Then he started walking faster and I turned again and I saw his face and the look in his eyes told me he was not there for a lovely tea party so I booked it.

He almost caught up with me once but I managed to duck into an alley. Unfortunately that alley came to a dead end.

He asked me where Elaine was the look in his eye and the smile on his face told me this wasn't the man I met months ago. I told him I didn't know. He hit me in the stomach

I fell to my knees but I wasn't ready to just give up. I thought about ghosting or phasing and I realized I'd prefer this than attracting the attention of tall dark and faceless.

He told me I deserved what I got if I was willing to be hurt for her. I dont' remember what I said but he punched me in the face and told me she destroyed Cam then asked why I defended her.

I told him its because she's a friend, because I care about her and he kicked me in the ribs and aimed a gun at my head.

He asked me again where she was and I just told him I didn't know again. I looked up at him and I saw a glint behind him that caught my eye and a harpoon landed between him and I.

He turned around to see Glyph hop down from the building and aimed his harpoon gun he still had for whatever reason. Glyph said "Get the fuck away from my daughter." and promptly shot Jake in the shoulder.

Jake said something to Glyph but I don't really remember because I was distracted by my ribs hurting like a bitch. Glyph pulled me up and told Jake to get out of his sight. That he wasn't going to murder someone in front of his daughter.

Jake finally ran off and told me Konaa was next.

Glyph looked me over and looked at me sadly and concerned. He gently touched my cheek and sighed and said "Oh dear... look at what he's done to you..." and then hugged me. I was so tired... so hurt at that point. I just let him. I knew from the look in the eye he wasn't going to try anything.

He stroked my hair and then left an arm around me as he led me to a truck and sat me down. He got out a first aid kit and bandaged me up a little. "Dysis should take you to the hospital... just in case." He said as he looked at me.

I looked at him and watched him fix up my cheek. The smell of fresh band-aids. The sting of antiseptic. All of it reminded me of how things used to be and I couldn't help but cry. He hugged me again and told me everything was going to be okay.

I asked him why this was happening and he looked at me sadly and said, "Because sometimes, Maggie, fate just plays our cards for us."

I hugged him and asked him if I could go back to the hotel room. He said yes and helped me along to the hotel room. I got there and explained everything to Dy. She hugged me and took me to the hospital

Nothing wrong so far... just bruised side, my cheek is swollen, and my stomach hurts.

Konaa please be safe. Jake isn't the same as he was. He's going to kill you if he doesn't get what he wants... He almost did it to me without hesitation.

So please, dont' hesitate. Don't reason with him. He's too deep in his own pain to see through it.

All the rest of you... keep on the look out as well.

Take care of yourselves.


  1. ...Fuck. Old man, thanks..Thanks a bunch.

    Lia. I won't forgive him for this. He comes near me, he's gonna lose a LOT of blood.

    You hear me, Jake? You're scum. You're just as bad as Prosper. You reacted to this by becoming the same thing that took your husband's life? You think Cam would fucking want you to kill his friends? You're just another monster, and I WILL take you down. Count on it.

    Lia, I...fuck. I'm so sorry I wasn't there for you.

    Old man, I owe you. Big time. Big fucking time.

  2. Its okay, Konaa. It wasn't your fault.

    I don't want you to get hurt is all. Okay? I'll be fine.

    I'm not going to let this hold me back.

  3. Oh, jeez. I'm glad you're alright. Be careful.

  4. I reiterate what Nick told you before: Baseball bat beats bare hands. You won't have someone around to take hits for you forever.
