“Get out of here!” I found myself struggling to utter words those words. Sooner or later, I knew that I would no longer be able to speak. I saw her staring directly at me, trying to understand what was happening to me.
She began walking towards me, but I swept my hand at her to shoo her away. There was nothing that she could do. I looked at her, my eyes filled with desperation. I didn’t want her any closer and I was afraid of what I might do. It took every ounce of energy to hold it back, to hold back the ghoulish personality that was trying to break free.
“Dick! Don’t give up! Please!” Tears streamed down her face and her voice filled with sadness.
“I’m sorry Trish… Please forgive me.” I saw red energy streaming out from my body. It filled the once pitch black room and soon Trish’s face glowed red. She shielded her eyes as the energy emanating from my body grew brighter.
“It’s too late. This is the price that you must pay for abusing your power!” A distorted voice rang from behind me. It was the same voice that first talked to me and gave me my power. I turned around and saw a man cloaked in black.
“What do you want?!” I pleaded to it, hoping that he could reverse what I’ve done.
“I’ve warned you about what would happen and now I’ve come to take control. I’ve come to kill you.” Kill?! Was that really the only way? Then I felt myself fading. Fading from the red room into darkness. It began to surround me and soon I was engulfed in it.
“Goodbye Drake. It looked like you too were engulfed by the power that I’ve given you.” The energy around Drake began to settle around his body and the terror on his face was replaced by a ghoulish smile. “This is worse than I thought. It looks like the power has completely taken over. Talk about a pain in the ass.”
The creature who was once Drake let out a monstrous roar and lunged towards the man cloaked in black.
