Part 51


Ryan almost retched right then and there but he held himself together. The sight before him was enough to confirm to himself that the decision he was about to make was the right thing to do. This poor soul who this creature was now devouring had lost his or her life, because of the monster that he and Andrew had created. Ryan knew what Andrew clearly couldnt see because he was blinded by love. Tracy was gone. She wasn't there any more. All that was left was a hungry animal willing to kill whoever and whatever in order to satisfy its insatiable hunger. That is why, this all had to end. Ryan took a deep breath and stepped toward the bed. Opening the gas canister he doused the bed with gasoline, splashing Tracy as well. She looked clearly confused as he emptied the can around her. He took three steps back, struck a match and tossed it on the bed. In seconds the bed was engulfed in flames. Wild screams escaped from Tracys throat as she thrashed about. She tumbled off the bed, rolling around on the floor, trying to fight off the flames that licked at her body. All Ryan could hear were her high pitched screams as he ran out the door, dropping the empty can to the ground as he went. He jumped inside his car, started and up and took off down the road so fast he almost ran into an on coming car. He managed to swirve out of the way in time. His heart thudded a thousand times a minute. Steadying himself on the road, he slowed down to a normal speed. Concentrated on breathing deep as he focused on the road again. He didn't know how he was going to tell Andrew, or what he was going to say to him. But he couldn't afford to think about it now. His nerves were shot, his mind racing. His hands shook and his heart pounded in his chest. His only goal at the moment was to concentrate on the road until he made it home safely. Once he got there..well, he'd deal with that road when he came to it.

Great imagery and a perfect ending. I'm not sure if I'm missing something though with the chronology of your posts, as this is labelled part 51? Is this part of a series?

Very well done,
Valerie.
