After years of chasing him I finally caught him. The man who fucked with my mind, the man who got into my head and played my strings as If I were a puppet. But here he knelt before me, on his knees begging for his life. I laughed at the fact he likely thought he would escape my clutches alive. I took a moment to appreciate the view of where I stood firmly, on the edge of a high cliff somewhere on the Scottish coast.
