Pity and Rebellion,
Pain is Real,
and Articled to Error by Vanzetti
"Some days I wonder why I even bother to shut the door in the mornings
when I leave for work. Whoever had broken into my apartment had also
left the front door unlocked; this implied that he (or she?) was still
in there, and didn't want to surprise me.... I
thought about walking away, going out for dinner, going over to
Scully's. But why put off the inevitable? Whoever was waiting was there
for a reason, and I needed to know what it was.
"I started to open the door. 'Ready or not, here I co--' Something heavy
hit me on the back of the head, and the world went black."
