The Vanisher

Back a few years ago, one of the world's most mysterious crimes ever committed left everyone stooped.
To this day, the goal and the criminal are still a mystery.
But, what people don't know what that the crime wasn't meant to be a crime in the first place.
The Vanisher, after many years, has returned with a mission, one that could change the world forever.


28. Surprise

My eyes go wide when he calls me by my real name.

How does he know my name?

How does he know it's me?

"Surprised, Ragan?  Come on, you think I didn't recognize you the second I found you in my classroom, the second you walked into school?  Please, you have to give me more credit than that." He says, circling me.

"Why didn't you come after me right then and there, huh?  Were you too scared?  Too unsure?  You had so many opportunities to kill me, but you didn't."

"Ah, but Ragan, I DID try to kill you, remember?  Loyal Byron, oh, poor guy, he tried, but I should have known better than to send a fool to do a master's job."

"Oh, and you're some sort of master?  Your hideout is where this all started in the first place.  You think I wouldn't have checked or come back here?"

"See, I am a master.  I am the master of that stone in your skin right now.  I know its full power, its weaknesses, its limits, like how the injection of liquid silver is extremely painful to you, and can cause hallucinations, dizziness, illness, you know." He smiles at me.

"What-" I start but I see him pull out a vile from his pocket.

Pure silver.

"You're kinda a werewolf type creature.  Silver is your worst enemy, well, I guess with the exception of me." He opens the vile, stirring its contents with his finger.  "Now, we can do this the easy way or the hard way: give the moonstone to me, or else." He's right up on me, staring down at me.

"Or else." I say, jabbing my knife into his side.  He grunts in pain and slams me into the cave wall.

"Well well, little girl,  the hard way it is."
