The Rain outside fell hard, but for reasons unknown it almost looked like it was blood red in colour or maybe that was just all in his head, the head of a man unsure if  his intentions when he was younger were for good or evil, were the people that died at his hands the bad one's or just innocent lives taken by him, a man with a cold dark soul. He moved closer to the window of his hotel window, looked at the rain and for a second he heard a voice in the back of his mind which sounded like the voice from his past. "What the fuck are you doing staring out a window "  asked the voice, he put his head in his hands then replied to the little voice in his head "When after all these years did you decide to come back now I don't listen to you anymore, not now not after you took over and made me kill" after talking to himself he went back to staring out the window at the red rain, as he did though he could feel a pain in his head just above his eye "Oh fuck no, please not again not now" he yelled out before falling to the floor and blacking out.

The dreams he once dreamed had come back but why now at this time in his life, He opened his eyes and instead of being in the low budget hotel room he was standing in a long dark hallway with grey walls and a bitch black tile floor he could see a door down the end of the hall which was open a just a crack but still just enough for him to see a shadow move past the door, as he got closer he could hear footsteps behind him then a voice that said "Ah Rain-Lee Melora I see you have finaly returned to us" Rain turned "Returned I did not return you fucking brought me here again, why?" Ha-Ha laughed The Mirror image of himself "In case you forgot I am you remember you brought yourself here, it was only a matter of time did you really think you could escape who you are" Rain scrached at his cracked bottom lip and stayed silent "That's what I thought, now wake up" contunied 'The Mirror' With that Rain woke up laying on the floor of his hotel room.

Rain left the room and got into a Jeep that he used to drive to the hotel, laying on the back seat wrapped up in a white blood stained bed sheet was his last victim, as he drove out of the hotel parking lot he started to remember what it felt like when he first killed, his first taste of taking another life, a second later he heard a truck horn in the distance which was when he relised his eyes were closed he opened them to be blinded by the bright lights of a semi he quickly tured the wheel, the Jeep hit some gravel on the side of the road then slid down an embankment the pack end hit a tree flipping it onto his roof, Rain blacked out and when he awoke he was ten years old again all he could hear was his drunk father breaking empty bottles against the lounge room wall. He had gone back to the beginning of his deranged life, after a few minutes he had forgoten about his growen up life, forced to relive his horrid and troubled past...
