Here he was, at the end of his journey. Facing the man he once knew as his uncle, in a cold, broken down house. The man had a scar over his left eye, a golden tooth, and a crooked smile.

He was just sitting there nonchalantly, as if he had not a single care in the world.

“How’s life been treatin’ ya, kid?”, chatted the strange man as got up to move closer.

“Not so bad.”, the boy said. “Could’ve been worse than how you treated me back then, old man.”

The man had shared a small, onesided bitter chuckle. As he approached closer, the kid moved back, slowly inching himself away from the man.

“What’s wrong kid, you scared of your ole’ uncle here?” he taunted, moving closer at a faster rate.

“Scared of you? What’s that supposed to be, a bad joke?” The kid snarled back.

Finally stopping, the man had extended his arms and looked at the kid with a twisted grin.

“C’mon kid, don’t ya miss me? Your only family?”

“As far as I’m concerned, my family doesn’t include you. I am a family of one after all.” He said, slowly getting hostile with each step his uncle took.

The man’s smile had faltered.

“You know kid, you’re really pissing me off. I gave you a house when you needed one, I took care of you when your parents died. Where’s my thanks? You didn-”

“Your thanks? Your thanks?! You think I wanted to stay with you? You think I don’t know what you did?!” He exclaimed angrily. “You killed my parents just so you could have another expendable pawn. I told you this once, and I’ll tell you this again...”


The man’s smile had completely shifted into a frown.

“Well then, we’ll just have to see how true that is." He said as he lunged for the boy.
