Phase 8

I didn’t visit Lucas in the hospital for two days after my realization.  Although I wanted to, I just couldn’t bring myself to face the truth again.  It’s not that I don’t want to visit Lucas because he killed his sister, it’s what comes after that that scares me.  Mercy.

As I sat at my desk that Tuesday a bit startled.  I had finished Mr. Braren’s novel with the many, many typos, sent him a long email discussing it, and he finally responded with the corrections.  The novel was complete!  Now to send it to Jillian for the final edit.  I pressed the print button on the copier to print the selected pages on the computer, and it began buzzing and slowly drooling out the paper.

This is bigger than I ever imagined.  Yet, I’m not imagining.  Believe it or not, I was never imagining.  The pills I took never helped because there was nothing I saw that was fake.  It was all real.  Every bit of it.  And that note that I found in the bottles that night after the alley attack, did Denzel leave that for me? 
I feel like such a puppet, under Denzel’s complete control.  I wonder how Lucas is doing…  Speaking of Denzel and Lucas, I forgot to mention something.  I’ve put the pieces together, the puzzle is complete.  I can’t believe that I didn’t see this before…

…Mercy is Lucas’s Denzel.
