The Darkness - Redux - Final Words

Epilogue As I explained in the opening, about 60% of this story was told to me by my own six going on seven year old "Johnny."

The Darkness - Redux - Part Twenty Seven

Back at the Well's home, Roger was about to look at his watch to see how long Richard had been gone when they first heard the explosion and then felt the after blast.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Twenty Six

Richard got out of the car and went to the trunk to fetch the tank. He placed it on the rubber mat the store used as a ground while filling it to prevent a static spark and rang the bell.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Twenty Five

Richard looked up and around and saw Roger tending the meat on the grill. 'How did he not see us? How could they possibly not have seen us?' It didn't matter by then.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Twenty Three

Back in his office, Richard began to run the events of the day over and over in his mind. Rambert? Where in the name of a fiery hell had the kid pulled that name?

The Darkness - Redux - Part Twenty One

Roger gathered the boy up and carried him into the sitting room, calming him and stroking his face. Alice brought him a small glass of lemonade, his favorite drink, and finally coaxed him to take a few sips. It seemed like forever but the boy finally seemed to become normal or at least what could be... Sign in to see full entry.

The Darkness - Redux - Part Twenty

Although nearly sixteen, Mike walked over to where his father's chair and sat on his lap, obviously in need of a safe harbor. "You know how Johnny uses all kinds of voices when he plays with his trucks and Lego's? He kept asking me to show me my hand of cards. I wouldn't do it and he began to use a...

The Darkness - Redux - Part Nineteen

Once inside, Mike asked if it was alright if he showered. His clothing was dirty from trying to put out the fire and then escape and a heavy aroma of smoke surrounded him.
