The Devil Went Down to Portland

I had just stepped out. I was just getting groceries for diner. We'd been so worried with the way KK had been since she woke. I guess the worry was really something to be concerned about. I mean, for love of the Gods, she started walking with no problem as soon as she woke. Looking at her blog entry she made, she took a gun shot to the stomach like it was nothing.

Maybe I should go back and explain how it happened. How it all went down. As I said, I had just run down the street to the grocer for some stuff for dinner. I came back home from the run and entered the apartment. It was a mess. Things were missing, now that I've had tme to cool and calm down to some degree, I realize it's all of KK's weapons. The place was also a mess. And.. then I found Derek. And I lost it. I could hardly contain my fear and was afraid to get to close or I'd hurt him more and afraid that if I weren't close enough he'd die without knowing how I really feel. I love you Derek. I really do. And I'm sorry this happened.

Next thing I know there's this woman hovering over us. Scared the shit out of me. How she just appeared from nowhere. Then I realized who it was. It was Andromeda. I should have turned and killed her. Hell I probably would have. She just watched, the look on her face. Pity? Worry? I don't know. She kneeled over Derek. She seemed very sincere. "Let me take him, I can save his life." Ans she picked him up. And started to leave. And then I started screaming.

"I'm supposed to trust you?! How the fuck do you expect me to trust YOU. Of everyone on this planet I hat you more than anyone else. I want you to die more than anyone else. I want to see you fry in hell and I want to see you tortured and cut to pieces and killed slowly. You took my husband away from me! He was my life! How do I know you won't do the same to Derek?! I love him! I LOVE HIM! I swear to the Gods above if you kill him, take him from me as well, the it is on. I will find you and I will fucking KILL you!"

She moved and retrieved his hand from the floor and looked to me. "I'm afraid I can't waste time talking to you, dear. Mr. Collins here is about to die, and if I'm to save him I need to get to work immediately. Don't you worry, though. He'll be quite safe." And then they were gone. And I was left here.

I've been trying to keep an optimistic view on this. Derek will be safe. I'll have him back. I'll have him here. won't I? I hope. It's empty here. I feel alone. they're both gone and I'm again alone. I've been cleaning and trying to just keep my mind on the thought that they'll be back. They're just out. KK had a doctor's appointment. Yeah, that's it. I've been cleaning up and then I found this note. From KK. "Aiden can have all our shit." just scrawled and signed by her. I'm so confused. And scared. It's almost like I'm right back to where I started. I'm trying to keep my mind to the future. But all I can think of that keeps me going is the fact that we're all fucked. I knew this was coming. I need to take things as they come. We've seen the Slender Man, ad all we can know for sure is that in the end we're going to die. So let's make the most of it until we do. I said it before. I'm a fighter now, not a runner. I'll figure out what to do about this and see about moving this place to my name and taking charge. I'm still alive, Derek's going to be safe. I'll see him again. We'll be find.

I love you Brennon. I love you Derek. Love will keep us alive. It's the best weapon we have anymore. Let's use it to the fullest.


  1. Dia, please, stop blaming yourself. You've no reason to. So please just don't. Otherwise I might have to try and find you and smack you till you admit that you're not to blame. Chin up dear. We're doing out best to do the same here.

  2. That wouldn't be good, so.. alright. I hope Derek's okay. I know if anyone could save Derek right now, it'd be Andromeda. Good luck.

  3. Irony starts with an A.

    Andromeda... the person that killed my husband and my boyfriend... now expected to save Derek. I hope you're right and he does pull through this. I don't want to lose him. I'll keep you updated best I can. You be sure to take care of yourself as well. I've not been so busy that I've not been able to keep on top of other's blogs.

    Stay safe Dia, be safe.

  4. I'll be visiting a friend for a while, and if he tracks me there... well, I'll know a few things. I'm trying, I really am.

    Irony is in everything.
