    Cletus work up to the guards yelling for him to wake up. He glared at the door, pissed that he couldn't sleep when he last wanted to sleep. "Hello, boys," he said as he sat up. Of all places to end up this one wasn't the worst, and it was only because the others just left him alone for the most part. The only people he had to worry about was the guards, and they rarely got close to him fear of what he could do to them. He could sense that something was up with them, and he could almost wonder what is going through their minds. As he got up and went to his cell door. "What do you got for me today?" he asked, his voice oddly cheery. Though it was mostly to keep them on edge. The younger guards were always freaked out by him.

    "Can it, Kasady," the taller guard said. "I ain't dealing with your shit." He pushed in a tray of food and a letter. This sparked Cletus's curiosity. He rarely got mail, and it made him wonder just who it was. He grabbed both the tray and the envelope and went to his desk. "Thank you," he said over his shoulder dismissing the guards for now. They would come back eventually for him. He sat down and got comfortable as he ate his breakfast and stared at the envelope wanting to know who sent him a letter. It could have been another one of those crazy fanatics that had a thing for serial killers, a cop trying to get him to talk, or a journalist. Though all three of them drove him a little crazy. None of them understood him, or really wanted to know him. Cletus grabbed the letter, no longer able to hold himself back. He had to know who it was from.

    Cletus's eyes scanned through it quickly trying to find out who sent it to him first. He saw the name Willoh Knight at the bottom. He smiled widely remembering the name. She was his shining light in that dark orphanage. His one good thing. He went back to the top of the letter and started reading. He could feel his heart ache as he read about what had been done to her and the experiments that her guards put her through. The tortures that place was putting her through. He continued on as she started to reminisce about the day when they first met and how she saved him. He had loved her from the start. She was the only one who had saved him from the darkness around him. Then she got to the terrible day. The one he hated to remember, the day she was taken away. He remembers that day all to well, and how it still haunts his nightmares. It's the one day that he wished that he could forget. He had banged his fists on the walls for hours until they were bloody, and he still had the scars on his hands to show for that terrible day.

    Isabella was curled up on her couch when she got a craving for something sweet. She got up, thinking a trip down to Mrs. Chen's store would be worth it. She needed to get out of the house for a bit. She grabbed her purse and locked the apartment door behind her. It was pretty late as it was for her, but she couldn't stay locked in the house all week. Isabella enjoyed being able to work from home as an editor for a newspaper, but she really did have that much interaction with the outside world all that much anymore. She walked down the street, trying to keep to herself and ignoring the others around her. The activity of the city always made her a little nervous. It wasn't something that she had grown up around. She had moved to the city a few years ago, and maybe only gotten to know a handful of people.

    Isabella walked to the grocery store that she always went to. She smiled and waved at Mrs. Chen behind the counter. "Hey, Bella," Mrs. Chen said. Isabella always smiled when someone called her that, though it was rare for her to introduce herself as Bella. "Hey, Mrs. Chen. How's the day been?" she asked, walking a little further into the store, heading for the sweet section of the store. She looked at the chocolate section and saw that it was completely empty. "No chocolate?" she asked, looking over at the older lady. "No, the shipment hasn't come in yet. I've been trying to figure out why," the old lady said as the door chimed when another person came in.

    "Hello, Eddie," Mrs. Chen said. Isabella glanced over to see one of the few people she knew and considered a friend. She smiled a little in his direction. She hadn't thought that she would have run into him here, but here he was. She hadn't seen him in awhile. She didn't know if it was from her never leaving the house or what. She had worked as an editor for the same company before they let him go over the whole Carlton Drake thing. Then she had found a job at a publishing company. "Hey, Eddie," she said, smiling at the guy as he walked towards her.

    @ Theo Rossi;

    Willoh dreaded these days, the wednesdays of every week…it was when they were going to poke and prod her to get her plasma and some bits of other DNA samples there and there for their new text on seeing if her blood was the cure to cancer and bullshit like that. A week ago she sent out a letter to Cletus that he should have gotten today. She looked forward to his mail every week or two, the only thing keeping her going. The address she was at was blocked off by a P.O. Box from another state nearby, making it take so long for him to get the mail. She hated being stuck in this hellhole for decades…

    ‘My Red…’ the letter would start off ‘I am continuously poked around like a guinea pig…they want me for cures and bullshit like that. I took a guys hand with my teeth one day…I remember you always loved my fangs how I can bite off limbs like those dicks at the orphanage when we were kids…’ her letter would go on about how they would talk through the vents in their rooms at St. Estes, her talking back to the days where she beat the crap out of those kids that hurt him…how she still held the little black and red ring made out of some rope, ribbon and yarn. She sat back in the chair, awaiting the doctors to begin their painful injections and takings of her blood. Willoh feared that the day would come for Cletus when the death sentence was going to be imminent with how he racked up the body count. She felt so scared…she remembered when she first saw his face on the newspaper and found out what place he was at. If he was given the death sentence, she hoped her wish went through with the sergeant here that she would get that one phone call to hear his voice one last time.

    “Okay sweet darling,” one the guards seethed near her ear, giving her earlobe a lick that made her cringe in disgust “Time to get started.” He roughly strapped her in, the seat adjusting to lean her back as she laid there breathing heavily. It was only matter of time when the next set of experiments came since their testings have all else failed. One of the female doctors came up and roughly stuck a needle in her forearm that was already scarred as she winced out with a tear down her eye, wishing she was never a freak like this.

    At the prison where Cletus was at, a guard was staring at him smiling at a letter “Got a new fan, Red? You seem more cheery than usual besides the normal bullshit”

    ——

    Eddie was hating having to deal with another morning with Detective Mulligan on Cletus Kasady again. “Look why does he want to talk to me” Eddie said as Mulligan continued to walk off with Eddie. “Apparently he is interested in only you wanting to get the full scoop of his story, wanting his story to get out how his life was and apparently he wants the word out that a special someone needed to be heard. Not sure who it is because he won’t tell me and he always keeps talking around the topic. Im obviously of no interest except you” he said rather bitterly as he got out a cigarette, giving the card to Eddie “Look you might want to head out there in a little while today so you can get the story before he tarnishes it. We need those bodies being told and whatever other bullshit that needed to be told about this special someone…honestly I don’t think that crazy fucker has a special someone” Mulligan rolled his eyes as he walked off.

    Venom growled “What a dick’ as Eddie felt his body being tugged a bit by Venom so the alien could get a hold of the guy but Eddie jerked his body hard enough to where he slammed a little against the wall. “Cut it out” he whispered harshly, walking out of the police station and heading to Chen’s store. Venom was blabbering on about Mulligan and not wanting to go back to the other ‘dickhead’ called Kasady. Eddie rolled his eyes, greeting Chen as he continued forward. He was soon stopped by someone in front of him…someone he hasn’t seen in a bit “Hey…” he thought deeply, pointing at her “Isabella right?” How are things?” Eddie chuckled nervously. ‘she isn’t anne…but she pretty’ Venom commented in his mind.

    Cletus glared at the guard, hating the interruption. He wanted to be left alone with his thoughts. He wanted to find a way to get to his dear angel, and he felt like there was only one way to get the word out to her. "I want to talk to Eddie Brock," he said over his shoulder, trying to sound as casual as he could. He would try to write to his beloved, but he didn't know how he would be able to. Or if the guards would even get his letter out to them. He grabbed his empty tray and shoved it toward the guard through the open slot in the door. He looked at the guard, wanting to see if he would get his promise that the journalist would be here. He needed to get his word out to the only person that matter.

    He knew that there was the talk of the death penalty on him, and there was the risk of it getting approved. He needed to get let his beloved know that he had never forgotten about her and would never stop loving her. "Why?" the guard asked, the curiosity ringing in his voice. Cletus just looked at him and glared. "Get me Eddie Brock, and you will find out just what. But someone needs to hear from me," Cletus said, turning back towards his bed. He grabbed the letter on his way and held it close to his chest. He thought about the day that he first met her. The older boys were beating him and kicking him while he was curled on his side. He hadn't been able to fight back. He remembered her voice yelling at them and then her beating them all. He missed her every day that they were separated and wished for her to be back in his life.

    ***

    Isabella looked at Eddie. "Uh, yeah. I am. I have been alright. I work for a publishing company now," she said. She looked at him, wondering if he had a long day. "How about you? What have you been up to these days?" She was a little surprised to see him again. Though she was still finding him attractive. She wasn't sure if he was still with Anne or not, so she didn't want to act on that impulse. Though she had always enjoyed his company when she was around him. She grabbed a bag of candy that they still had in stock. She was a little glad that he still seemed to remember her. Though he didn't seem to completely remember her.

    "So how's Anne? I hope that she's doing well. Well, I hope you have been, too," Isabella said as she rubbed the back of her neck. Her smile was a little weak, but she still felt comfortable around him. She was curious with herself as to why she was so curious to know. Though she was trying to be casual about it all. She could feel Mrs. Chen watching them, and she wondered why. She wondered if she was being too nosy or just bothering him. Isabella could feel her nerves getting the better of her. She smiled at him, trying to calm down her nervousness.

    Eddie nodded at her words, Venom bothering him in his head ‘you should go out to date, Anne is with Dan, you need to live your life’. Eddie rubbed his head a bit trying to focus, “Im doing okay, been working for a big scoop right now. Been told I need to speak to Cletus Kasady if you heard of him. I been kind of on my own, hoping to not be so caught up in that killer and solving his riddles he leaves for me. Im not always the best at that crap” he chuckle nervously, watching her every move and intrigued in a way. Venom pushed his body to move closer to her, making him trip a bit as he tried to better his posture to not look so strange. He chuckled nervously “Anne is with Dan now, we kind of…didn’t work out. I made a big fuck up and been going on my own for a bit hitting some side gigs. The Kasady story is big and for some reason he likes me.” he shrugged.

    Eddie noticed Chen looking at them as the woman beat her to the punch. “Blonde woman broke his heart, he been doing laziness ever since” Chen blurted out as Eddie cringed at her words, turning towards her “Thanks Mrs Chen I so appreciate your input” he sighed in annoyance, “That being said…I mean did you want to catch up? I was wondering honestly…well…you want to accompany me with talking to Kasady? Maybe help solve his clues in his cell. When he speaks to me he’s in the barred cell next to where he originally stays so its free access to look. I can make a phone call so you can accompany me” he asked “Hope Im not pushing it but I could use a little help with this guy.” he offered, smiling at her reaction as he flipped up his phone and made a quick call.

    ——

    The guard eyed Cletus curiously, wondering what was so special about that letter that made him perk up all of a sudden. The bodies were going to be discovered by someone and honestly, the guard hoped that this journalist he heard of named Brock could uncover them and put this guy to the chair. It wasn’t long when they heard a phone call coming from one of the offices down the hall, it clicking in the guards speaker to get word from Cletus “Hey Red, Brock will come today but he is bringing a ‘intern’ type of person with him to help better your story. Sure you won’t mind. You want your story out so bad for some fucking reason that is the only option” the guard barked, not caring on Cletus feeling uneasy about another person if he did but I’m sure that the story going out was going to be best either way. “I’ll let them know they can come. They will be coming within the next hour or so, make sure you behave like you ever do”

    Willoh hated the experiments, the poison excruciating in her bloodstream as they took a good portion out. They never fed her proper blood, it was this synthetic shit that would make sure she wouldn’t use her powers like teleportation, strong powered mutation to make her skin a dark grey, super strength and even the ability to use some purple matter that glows from her hands to move things like a telekinesis. But none of that powers work unless she has fresh blood…she didn’t heighten those powers until she was older in this facility and there was an accident that showed them all up in their glory. Now they treat her like an animal. After the injections and syringes, they wrapped her metal collar around her neck for immediate painful electrocution if she were to attack in anyway. She was shoved through the facility, thrown into her cell that was never dark, the darkness heightening her powers too. She hasn’t felt the power of the darkness since she was a kid…since she helped Cletus when he was put in the closet for punishment in the dark and she made her hands glow that purple to give some light when she rested by it.

    Isabella looked at him curiously as he rubbed the back of his head. She was glad to hear that he was still in journalism. She had heard of Cletus Kasady, and honestly she was worried about where the bodies were that people had talked about. "Oh, come on, Eddie. You are one of the best out there. I have seen you report on stories that no one else had even gotten close to breaking," she said, smiling up at him. She looked at him curiously when he stumbled a bit, making him end up closer to her. She was confused by his actions though, not afraid of him. "Oh, I'm sorry to hear that you two aren't together," she said, genuinely meaning it. She didn't want him to be hurting. She didn't like seeing anyone like that.

    "I take it that Mrs. Chen doesn't like Anne that much anymore," Isabella muttered quietly more to Eddie than the store owner. She smiled at Eddie and nodded. "Yeah, I would love to catch up. If you want me there, I'll be there," she said. She had always liked being around Eddie, and she wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to talk to him. "You're not pushing anything. I'm happy to help, and maybe another set of eyes would help," she said. She hadn't been as experienced as Eddie when it came to field work, but she could get it done. Isabella watched as he got out his phone and made a few calls. She smiled up at him curious how all of this was going to turn out.

    ***

    Cletus heard the guard call out to him. Eddie was coming to visit him, and hear his story. Granted someone else was coming, and he didn't know who this other person was. But Cletus figured that if Eddie was coming then he would get his word out to his love. He could let her know that he hadn't given up on her. He wanted to write to himself, but he didn't trust the guards to give her his letter back to her. Plus, there wasn't a return address to know where she was. "Oh, I'll be on my best behavior, sir," he shot back. Which he meant it. He needed to get his word out, and if he had to behave, then he was going to. At least up to a point. He wasn't going to act like someone else. They would know that he was in fact Cletus Kasady the serial killer that he was being convicted of.

    Cletus's thoughts drifted to Willoh. He worried about the tests that they were doing to her and what she was having to be put through. He feared the worst for her. He wanted to see her and hold her again. They had been apart too long, and he wanted to free her of her captivity. Set her free and to be by her side. "Oh, my dear angel, I wish that I could have protected you all those years ago," he muttered to himself. "I would have never let them take you away from me." He had yearned for her every day and dreamed her every time he slept. Cletus didn't like his life without her in it, and he didn't like her being separated from him. And he was still wishing for a way to get out of here and finding her.

    As ours past, Eddie decided to give Isabella a ride to the prison, luckily having having helmet to pit on her head to give her protection. He had her hold on to him the entire time, he drove over. It was tense in his mind though how this encounter was going to go. Kasady wasn't one to be very easy to talk to especially with his mentality. He was a sincerely disturbing individual and it made his skin crawl. It sounded like Cletus really needed him for sure on something urgent to talk about. Eddie had a lot of information on him but something obviously was grabbing Cletus conscience to want to talk to Eddie specifically. It is known in prison that he refuses to let anyone's story know unless it was him and he wondered why.

    As Eddie pulled up, he helped Isabella off the bike and walked next to her to the prison entrance. 'Why we back here, this is pointless, guy is a freak' Venom shoved in Eddie's mind as Eddie was trying so hard to not react in front of Isabella to make a fool of himself. Prisoners were cat calling at Isabella as he walked down the death row hallway, he hated that. Eddie wrapped his arm around her waist to keep her closer to him for protection as they finally approached the held off room that was held for all the worst criminals. Eddie let out a long sigh, looking at Isabella "ready?" He said as the guards opened the door and they walked inside. "Afternoon cletus" Eddie said with much less emotion as possible, getting out his recorder "Hope you don't mind my intern here wanting to help on your story. She is very good in cracking cases" he winked at her, keeping her near him considering how uneasy Cletus was around anybody.

    ---

    The guard let Eddie and Isabella in cautiously, making sure to stand near the door at a good distance so the two could talk to him. He watched Eddie eye hum curiously and start the tape recorder, knowing full well this was going to be a good scoop. He wondered what was so special about that letter. "I'm here Cletus...what you got for me. What's the add in" he stated, letting Isabella look at where Cletus had his whole life carved on his cell wall...even clues to rhe love of his life being the one nicknamed "draculina" by the guards because she was a supposed vampiress mutant in the Estes home.

    Meanwhile, Willoh laid in her bed, caressing the ring on her ring finger where she wished for a actual engagement ring. They wished for a red wedding...a beautiful wedding just the two of them...in a Gothic cathedral. She was more of a Gothic type of person and always enjoyed the darker side of life, no pun intended for her being being vampire type of mutant. She smiled as she looked back to cuddling with Cletus out on the lawn, staring at the stars. Oh the dreams she had...

    Isabella walked into the prison with Eddie. She could tell that Eddie was tense, and she couldn't tell if it was just from the prison or something else. Maybe he was worried a lot about Cletus and what the guy had to say. She tried not to glare at the inmates catcalling at her. She had never liked that kind of attention, but she couldn't just chew guys like these into respecting her. She leaned into Eddie's side when he wrapped an arm around her. She had to admit she liked the feel of him holding her, but she had to pull herself from those thoughts as she stepped into the room that held Cletus.

    Isabella looked at him curiously. She didn't think that she had ever been this close to a serial killer before, and she didn't think that she would be in a position like this. She kind of always assumed that she would have just been listening to true crime podcast that sometimes had recordings of the serial killer talking. She told herself to get her mind in the game. She was here to help Eddie discover where the bodies were. She looked over Cletus, trying not to make it look like she was a target. She stuck close to Eddie, feeling safe next to him, and he seemed to sense that. She looked around the room and saw his cell that was covered in carvings of phrases and drawings. There was something familiar about one of the pictures but she couldn't figure out what it was.

    ***

    Cletus smiled widely as he watched them step into the room. "Hello, Eddie," Cletus said, and then turned to the intern. "And hello to you." He watched Eddie set up a recorder. "Oh, I don't mind too much. As long as she isn't the one running the show," he said, looking between the two. He noticed her looking around the room they were in. He ignored it, doubting she was actually looking for something. "Eddie, you gotta make a deal with me. There is something I need you to do for me before I just give you my whole life story," he said, looking up at Eddie and meeting his eyes.

    Cletus could see the guard in the back of the room, watching them. He knew that the guard was listening to them, and he didn't care too much. "I need you to put 'broken angel, it will be a cathedral I will give you, I won't forget' as the headline," he said. "I need your promise that you will put that on the front page, and I will tell you everything." He looked at Eddie wanting to know that he would get what he was promised. He didn't even care that Eddie wouldn't understand it. He knew who it was intended for would understand it. He needed that message to get to her.

    Eddie listened carefully to his request, wanting to know more and it was obvious that with his job he couldn't just put one quote on the page. There was more to be said and he had to trick his way into it. He was going to put the quote there...but it probably wouldn't be the headline. "I can put it on the page Cletus...but the deal is this...considering there are ways for me to do this quote, I need more of a better offer than that." He eyed Isabella examining the room Cletus would be in overnight, her secretly taking notes and some photos with no one but Eddie noticing. Eddie looked back at the killer "You have to tell me more about who you are speaking of. Not this name of this broken angel you call...but what link it has to your past. I figured...if people knew your past the quote will make sense and people can open their eyes. I need more than just what you say about this person."

    Eddie grabbed a chair offered to him, sitting in front of the bars with eyes focused on the dark stare of Cletus Kasady "Look, I can only help you if you help me. You want that out so bad...you need to tell me a bit more". Eddie wanted to know more...but in his mind, he wanted the key links to those missing bodies that haven't been discovered yet. Isabella was doing her secret "observation" of his room, hoping that would be key. 'The answers are in that room' Venom growled in his mind. "This broken angel...had this person been someone who was key into your childhood that was at the orphanage you spoke of? You mentioned someone was there but was vague, speaking in metaphors....what went on there Cletus?"

    ---

    The guard stood watchful on the two doing their job, wondering if Cletus would crack to Eddie which honestly since he was so desperate about getting a word out there and he was stuck on death row, the crazed man would do anything to make sure his wishes are completed. The whole prison hoped that thus duo of journalists can crack the case and put Cletus to death, giving a comfortable closure to the family. It didn't help this guard had a sister that was missing as one of the possible missing bodies of Kasady.

    Willoh laid on her back, tracing her finger tip over her fangs that were sharp to the point. She remembered how scared she was to show the vulnerable side of her starving and wanting to feed, her body lookin so demonic in a way. But cletus never judged it...he made sure to find animals around the orphanage to help her out. Sure they didn't give full abilities but it kept the developing hunger at bay. The hunger was more prominent when she became an adult. Willoh remembered the first kiss when they had a moment outside, how she wanted to save herself for Cletus. Willoh was obviously still a virgin since nothing sexual went on at such a young age when they were teens. Cletus would hold her, stroke her hair, warm her ice skin...and make her jewelry from the art sessions. It was a match made in hell.

    Isabella was trying to be as unnoticeable with her pictures. She didn't want to warn Cletus onto what she was doing. She had heard what Cletus said that he wanted for the headline. It was a strange headline that was sure to get attention from everyone, but it wouldn't make any sense to anyone except for just the one person. She continued looking for clues in obvious places. She wasn't going to dig into any of his drawers, afraid she was going to be blatantly obvious in what she was doing. She ended up walking closer to Eddie when she wanted to hear more of Cletus's story. Or rather see if he was going to talk.

    Isabella had looked at her notes from his wall, seeing a lot of mentions of a broken angel or shinning light. It was someone that Cletus cared deeply about. She had to guess it was from St. Estes. That was the only place that she had known him to have any interaction with others. Though she didn't know who he was referancing. She had just heard some mentions of his background. She didn't know if she could warm him over because he had asked for Eddie, and she was just here to help Eddie. "If it's to get a message to an old friend, what is it going to hurt to talk about them?" Isabella asked.

    ***

    Cletus looked up at Eddie. "I need that as the headline. I promise that if that's a headline, what's mine is yours. My whole life story," he said, looking directly at Eddie. He ignored the question from the girl, deciding that she is just an intern not worth talking to. He leaned back in his cell and stared up at Eddie. "You know we are a lot alike, Eddie," he said. "We both had terrible daddies that would beat us." Cletus knew that he was going to have to get that promise before he gave away too much of his story, but he didn't see the harm in getting Eddie to be on his side.

    "I wonder sometimes what the world would have been like if they hadn't resuscitated me. I wouldn't have pushed my grandmother down those stares, and I wouldn't have dropped that hairdryer in my momma's bath," he said. He looked at Eddie as he talked. He wasn't going to give him everything just yet, but he would give him a taste. "My dad, that heartless bastard, sent me off St. Estes for unwanted children. The kids there were bigger and meaner than me. They beat me up everyday until my shinning light came to save me." He looked at Eddie as he talked, trying to get a reaction out of him.

    @ Theo Rossi;

    Eddie stared at Cletus Kasady straight in the eyes as he spoke, noticing that the deal that he was giving to the psychopath wasn’t going to go through unless he posted first. Eddie wondered if there was going to be a clean way to get a good headline that not only had what Cletus wanted in the message but also the bodies that were wanting to be discovered. He clenched his jaw when Cletus mentioned about his dad being a abuser like Cletus’, a type of story that he never was open to anyone and especially didn’t really want Isabella to hear that dark part of his life…but Cletus was not one for a filter and left everything out on the table. He nodded slowly when he mentioned about his grandmother and mother, how the poor fucker was sent to that horrible home for unwanted kids. But this shining light he keeps speaking about…its someone obviously meaningful…yet he hears word about it time to time from the prison guards.

    “Word goes around on this shining light you speak of that obviously you aren’t going to give me the information on” Eddie cleared his throat, “But she’s some sort of…mutant? Theres been record of the home where old staff had talked about this girl with fangs that would go around and bite people, having powerful strength…something out of this world and rather supernatural. But then she disappeared..” he muttered, looking over at Isabella as he gave a faint smile but nothing too noticeable for Cletus to use as a weapon, “Well tell you what Cletus, I can get this out there…and there may be a chance where I can give you a Skype call to this…this shining light you speak of. You are going to have to let me think and do my research. I was given your file and some clues, let me do the work.” Eddie slowly nodded, giving a side plane at Isabella to see if she’s ready to get to work.

    ——

    The guards watched Eddie and Isabella look at each other all strangely, wondering if those two were hooking up or actual partners…or both. The guard nodded when he left the door open for Eddie and Isabella, waiting for them to say their goodbyes and head their way out to get going.

    Willoh heard someone entering her room as she flipped over and stared at the man coming in that looked rather…kind of freaked out. Willoh was in a glass cell that was pretty darn hard to break, a slot left for her to eat her food. Sure she needed blood to keep her powers and energy at max but regular food was fine. But these fuckers kept the food so processed and synthetic that it gave her no power or energy to build her strength to where she can attack again. At least she could provoke… As the fragile mans hands shook as he held the tray, he slid it into the slot. Willoh cocked her head to the side, staring at him with a sort of devilish side smile. She caught his gaze, leaning closer to the glass before suddenly jerking forward with her fangs bared and a loud snarl that made the man jump back. Willoh chuckled and snatched the food, imagining the food was more meaningful and tasted better.

    Cletus noticed him clench his jaw when he mention Eddie's father. Cletus knew that he had hit a nerve that the girl with him probably didn't know. He leaned back as he looked at the reporter in front of him, surprised that Eddie had heard about the girl. There had been questions about the mutant girl floating around, but it had never seemed common knowledge. Only a few of those fanatics that wrote in seemed to ask about her, but he never wrote any of them back. He never truly wanted to hear back from his fan base even though he knew that people were enthralled with serial killers, and that they would all go down in infamy.

    Cletus stared at Eddie and the girl in front of him, wondering if he should confirm it. He wanted to know if Eddie would be able to get him in contact with her. He would love to see her again even if it was just through the screen. "If you can get me in contact with her, then I will give you everything," Cletus said as he watched the two walk out the door. He was curious of the pair and what was going on with them, but they didn't seem to being acting anything more than professional, and maybe they knew how to play it off. He watched the door shut, and all Cletus could think about was Willoh. He wanted to know where she was and how he could save her.

    ***

    Isabella looked at Eddie as they walked back to his bike. She had felt the guard's eyes on them as they had left. She couldn't figure out why, but she was wondering if it was her, Eddie, or both of them that the guy was looking at. She was turning her mind over the carvings in Cletus's cell as they left the prison. "So you ready to do this?" she asked, looking over at Eddie. She didn't know if that went good or not. Cletus hadn't given them much on a report, but she figured that Cletus was going to prolong this as much as he possibly could. "I feel like there's something," she said. She was going to be searching for anything that rang a bell.

    "I have to say he was calmer than I would have expected him to be," Isabella said. She had walked in half expecting Cletus to be trying to get at them the entire time. "Though I don't think that means anything. He seemed like he wanted something." She glanced over at Eddie wondering if there was something going through his head. She stood next to his bike with the helmet in hand. "You don't think that he's just trying to prolong his stay and fight off the execution?" she asked.

    Eddie looked over at Isabella with a heavy sigh, nodding slowly at her question “Hell yeah..” he said very lowly. ‘We got the evidence to gut the bastard’ Venom growled in victory, ‘Thanks to your female friend and my photographic memory. I got something! I might have a clue…’. “Well I might have a clue to find those bodies,” Eddie stated, Venom growling to the copying of what he just said, “I think your photographs might help too. And don’t take the calmness from Cletus for granted. His mind is a lot louder than his mouth. Honestly he’s trying to…but these families are depending on me and whoever to get the closure that is much needed…” he informed. Eddie revved up the bike, getting Isabella back to his place as safely and soon as possible.

    As Eddie got back to his place with Isabella, everything was laid out and his laptop was up and running with pictures from what Isabella showed. ‘Eddie…let her show you…” Venom stated, looking at the photos that Isabella laid out and glancing at all the carvings shown in the pictures. There was a tree with a heart with ‘CK + WK’…a carving of a structure that was similar to the Estes orphanage lot….and other random drawings, even a drawing of a female with batwings and vampire fangs that had a halo on her head. Obvious that was who the ‘shining light’ he speaks of, the mutant. ‘Look closely’… Eddie heard in his mind, secretly when Isabella wasn’t looking letting Venom take over the muscles in his hand and arms to do a fast drawing of these hills…and a lake… “Isabella pull up this destination…” Eddie stated as he pushed the laptop towards her and gave the name of the many places near San Francisco.

    ——

    The guard back where Cletus Kasady was walked over to him and banged the nightstick against some of the bars. He stood there, staring at him while chewing some gum and of course doing the usual of gazing upon the serial killer like he was trash. This was a different guard for this shift, someone bulkier in muscle and full of tattoos. “So…your girlfriend supposedly was a vampire chick of some sort, some sort of freak…thats whats going around with your buddies that have some talk from the outside world” he chuckled “Don’t worry buddy, sure you will see her on the other side. It won’t be long before the death juice comes to you and the families get a good show” he smirked, standing against the wall and sipping his coffee he placed on the table next to him.

    Willoh was resting on a bed at this point, being forced to go to bed at a curfew that she hated. They kept the lights on even when it was time to sleep. Hell, there was a backup generator just for her room to make sure the darkness never comes for her to give her light of an escape and strength. Her stomach hurt for not having the blood she needed, something she got used to at this time of day “My Red…” she whispered, wishing his arms wrapped around her and placing lips along her cheek and neck.

    Isabella smiled proudly at Eddie. She was glad that he had been able to find a clue. "I'm glad that they will be of some help," she said. "Oh, trust me, I can see that and believe it. I guess I didn't know what I was going to walk in on. Maybe like a bad horror movie with him just going grazy and using something else instead of anobject to carve the drawings on the walls." She shrugged her shoulders, not sure how to explain herself. She nodded in agreement. She understood how important it was for the grieving families to get their much deserved closure, and she was glad that she was helping doing that.

    Isabella had to admit to herself that she liked riding on the back of Eddie's bike. There was just something about being able to be that close to him. She had always wondered what it would be like to ride with him, but never gave it much thought since he had been with Anne back then. She went with him up to his apartment. Isabella pulled up the pictures from Cletus's cell. Isabella looked at what Eddie wanted her too, and then did as he asked. She went through quite a few of them. The land formations were familiar to her, but it wasn't until she found the place that match that made her realize why. She had been there once before on a bad date. It was a mostly remote beach that hardly had any people go there to swim since it was so rocky. "I think I found it," she said, spinning the laptop towards Eddie.

    ***

    Cletus glared at the guard, pissed that the man had been listening to his conversation. None of that was for this lowly man's ears. He was only telling Eddie because he felt like he could trust that reporter. "I will talk her before then," Cletus said, assuring the guard of his intentions. "Even if I have to use your phone to do it." He hated these guards. It was because of the way they talked, how they walked, and for the way they acted. Some of the guards needed to be on the same side of the bars as Cletus, and that was being a little generous. When it came to the guard in front of Cletus, he needed to be knocked down a peg or two.

    "You never know," Cletus said. "You might never know what happened to those bodies." He laughed darkly. He stood up and walked to the barred door. "I want to go bed." He just wanted to think about his shining light and think about her in his arms. He wanted to be with her wherever she was. He watched the guard huff as he went through the procedure of getting Cletus back to his room. He went straight to the bed and grabbed the letter. He held it to his chest and muttered under his breath, "Oh, my sweet angel." He thought about her there with him in his arms. He would kiss her all over, letting her know just how much he loved her.

    Eddie noticed her find the place that fit the drawing in Cletus little prison area where he rested. ‘Bingo, i like her’ Venom chuckled as Eddie nearly dropped his mouth “Holy shit…Isabella we just found it…”

    FOUR DAYS LATER, it was all over the news…the findings of the missing bodies from Cletus Kasady that have been missing for years. ‘The gruesome findings of Cletus kasady has been cracked by none other reporters Eddie Brock and his friend, Isabella Rhodes. The families and the FBI are more than happy to finally bring closure. With all those findings, the judge has agreed to move Cletus Kasady to be put to death immediately. He was held on death row but it has been decided from the findings of the gruesome deaths that he needed to be put death by the next day at the stroke of 8:00 at night. “ Eddie and Isabella were standing with the FBI, rather him being so happy to have Isabella on his side with the help of Venom in his mind to crack the case.

    “Eddie your headline on Inside the Mind of Cletus Kasady has been selling off the stands and certainly brought you back in the spotlight” the news reporter smiled “And brought bigger attention to Isabella. The families and we of San Francisco are more than happy for all you did in bringing peace and now soon justice.” Eddie wrapped his arm around Isabella, smiling at her for how much he appreciated her help in getting this figured out “I couldn’t be thankful enough for Isabella to help me crack it. She’s been amazing” he said truthfully.

    ——

    Willoh saw the news pop up on the TV that was afar from her glass cube of a cell, her hands to her mouth as tears flooded her eyes. She was too late…she was too late…. The one chance she was given was too late for her. Willoh looked over at the dungeon wall to see the scientist she dreaded stand there with a smile “Kind of intentional to have such a late letter given to your boyfriend…now you will never have to deal with him again. He will get what he deserves” she seethed, making Willoh crunch the newspaper of the same headline on the TV in her hand. Tear drops hit Cletus’ picture as her sadness turned to rage. She snarled with fangs bared more, grabbing a chair next to her bed and throwing it against the glass wall towards her direction with a roar of rage.

    “Its better for the world darling…” the scientist chuckled as Willoh slowly sat down on the floor, glancing at the TV with fear. She wanted to see him one last time…and now that might never happen. “My Red….I just want to see you so bad” she whispered, holding on to the ring he made against her chest.

    Isabella didn’t quite know what do do with the attention that had come her way since they had found the bodies. She stood next to Eddie as he interviewed the news reporter. She smiled what Eddie’s comment about her. She had been loving the time she spent with him, and honestly with them having cracked the case, she didn’t know what they would do now. She smiled at the reporter who turned towards her. She leaned into his side a bit, loving the feel of him next to her. “So you have gain a bit a of a following, Isabella. How did you think of this place?” the reporter said.

    “Oh, there was a carving on his cell, and it looked kind of like a much of rocks. I looked up beaches it that were similar in the area. This place matched what was drawn,” Isabella said, smiling. She glanced over at Eddie. “I’m just glad that we were able to find the bodies for the families.” She smiled as the interview started to wrap up. She didn’t mind helping solve the case, but she didn’t feel like the right person to be doing interviews. But then again this was her first interview, and she was overthinking.

    ***

    Cletus glared at the screen that the guards had put on for him. Eddie had ignored his wish and condemned him to death row. He was pissed, ready to hunt him and that girl with him down. Of all times to get TV permission, the guards had made sure it was when Cletus was going to see Eddie betray him. He screamed and kicked the cell door. “No, no, no! That’s wasn’t how this was supposed to go down. You were supposed to talk to me and get my story out,” Cletus shouted. “No! No!” He started to pace around his cell, feeling exactly like a caged animal.

    “About time they found those bodies,” the guard said, ignoring the tantrum that Cletus was throwing. “You deserve what you going to get.” Cletus glared at the guy. “I want to talk to Eddie now,” Cletus growled lowly. He wanted to look Eddie in the eye and hear him try to explain himself over what he just did. He needed to know why Eddie hadn’t even mentioned his words out for Willoh. How he wished he could talk to her. He had tried to write a letter last night, just talking about his memories and how he missed her, but didn’t know if the guards had actually done anything about it.

    Eddie was enjoying the paparazzi of the press with Isabella, them asking questions on how they cracked the case and honestly, Eddie gave pretty much all the credit to Isabella. Sure Venom would have helped in a way but she was there to really use her detective skills and he was proud of her. Eddie decided to take Isabella out on a quick dinner date after getting all the TV press of the city on to their success. Detective Mulligan was pissed though, he could tell because he and the FBI wanted the first to get Cletus after being on his case for so long…yet it took so much shorter time for Eddie to grab the answers. Cletus was about to be put to death tomorrow night and honestly, in a way he felt bad about him not talking to his “shining light”….the one named Willoh. He did his research the past few days and found her under top secret files, thanks to Venom hacking the internet basically through his laptop ports. Eddie did only one needed deed for Cletus and that was to speak with him before he was given the consequence. So Eddie made a set up for Ravencroft to get her to talk with him briefly through a monitored phone call. It was only right to give closure to those families over his wishes…those people have suffered long enough.

    Eddie sat in front of Isabella at the diner, sipping the soda he ordered as he smiled at her “I guess this makes us partners huh? I wouldn’t have done it without you..” he said honestly as Venom growled ‘where’s my credit?’. Eddie rubbed his ear in reaction to Venom talking, smiling at the woman in front of him. Over the days he really noticed his liking for her. Isabella was beautiful to his eyes…he loved that dark hair, smooth skin and that gorgeous smile. Fuck, Eddie was literally falling for her at this point, especially with how much help and support she has been with him. It was only a matter of time before he had to show Venom in his full glory and Venom was getting antsy “Gotta say, we make a pretty sexy team” he said as ‘a matter of fact’ “All Cletus is going to get out of this is that phone call, which should be in minutes from what they said they would do it. Those families needed the closures…I don’t know if that makes me heartless for deciding that over his girlfriend but…i didn’t want the families to suffer longer.”

    ——

    Willoh was sitting there crying for hours it seemed, her eyes red from the emotional pain of losing the one person she never wanted to truly disappeared. Sure Cletus was kind of off the radar for a while but she was desperate in her search. Willoh stared at the wall, the TV shutting off thankfully as one of the staff people that was watching over her for this shift when the scientists left was the only decent person to help. “Hey Willoh…” the older man said “I got this uh…request….for you to talk to him one last time…just to say your goodbyes….its only right, dear…say what you want to say….” he said, gaining her attention from the glass cube cell as she felt her heart skip a beat. Willoh hasn’t heard his grown up voice and it made her excited beyond belief, tears still staining her cheeks. Even she knew that her voice would sound different being grown up and all, it was about 10 to 20 years.

    “Im going to hook it up to the intercom in your cell…you can talk to him while you sit in there…just be careful, all ears are around” the older man smiled weakly, connecting her intercom line to the designated phone line where Willoh sat on her bed, playing with her fingers a bit in excitement for him to pick up the phone. “Thank you…” she whispered towards the older man, rubbing her arms with her hands as she sat down waiting for his voice to play. She hoped that the guards would have him sit down somewhere and talk on the phone to her, even though it was monitored. Willoh was anxious, rubbing the area under the metal collar that was around her neck, making her feel like an animal.

    Isabella wasn’t surprised to see Eddie so comfortable with the attention, and she was kind of glad that he was getting his attention for the work that he did. She smiled back at him, sitting across from him. “Yeah, I guess it does,” she replied, kind of liking the sound of it. She had liked working on the project with him. She looked at him curiously as he rubbed his ear. Isabella wondered if something was wrong, and she did hope everything was okay. She had been noticing him tense up every once in while. She was curious if there was something up, but she didn’t want to get too much into his business. She was enjoying his company, and she was assuming that he may just be nervous.

    “Yeah, we do make a pretty good looking team,” Isabella said. She blushed a little at his words, but she was enjoying the comment still. Isabella shrugged her shoulders. “I don’t think you are being heartless. Those families deserved the closure that they got, and why should it matter? He is getting his call that he wanted even though technically he didn’t give us the information too. We were the one who dug it up,” she said. “He can say his goodbyes, and the families get their closure.” She shrugged her shoulders, feeling like that was the best it was going to get in the situation when it came to Cletus. But she didn’t see Eddie as being heartless when he was concerned about the victims’ families.

    ***

    Cletus watched the guard get things ready to call Willoh. He was surprised that he was getting that one last wish. Though he was wanting to talk to Eddie one last time, just to see why the reporter had betrayed him like he had. But he was glad that Eddie did seem to keep this request at the very least. He was closely as to what the guard was doing wondering if he was just making a show of things to get Cletus’s hopes up just to take it away from him. But he was excited to hear his shining light again. It was a need that he didn’t think he would ever satisfy. Or even think he could. He needed her voice every day, but he had bee depraved of it.

    “Remember we are listening to every word you say,” the guard growled as he glared at Cletus. Cletus just nodded, knowing better than to provoke him right now. He heard the ringing and then the answer. “Willoh,” Cletus said excitedly, wanting to her reply. Though he knew that this would most likely be their last time, and he wished that it wasn’t. “My darling, are you there?” he asked, not wanting to wait longer to hear her voice. Though he wondered just how bad her conditions were, he knew he couldn’t do anything about her treatment with where he was.

    Willoh heard his voice through the intercom and it was the biggest smile on her face she ever had. Tears built up in her eyes as her body was literally shaking at the sound of his voice. Her hands rubbed together as she spoke up "Cletus?" She answered. Obviously her voice more velvet and elegant with her being older and more mature. Cletus sounded older as well and she loved the sound of his voice honestly. She remembered his voice being slightly not so deep and soothing but she still loved it. Willoh smiled wide, her jet black hair flowing against her shoulders and a little frizzy. "Its been so long hearing you, so much...has happened...and I'm sad I can't see you one last time..." she sniffed, wanting to be strong for Cletus since his death was tomorrow and she didn't want him to worry.

    Willoh listened to him speak, smiling everytime he spoke. "I just...think about our time at that orphanage...our first kiss in that cold dark closet when you were in trouble and I snuck in...when we laid on our backs at night, sneaking out from our beds and staring at the stars...when I first discovered that when I am fed well, I have this magical telekinetic energy that glows this light purple from my hand...I miss having that...I miss us..." she sighed, rubbing her arms "They treat me like an animal here...especially when I used my fangs to tear that man's hand off when he tried to sexually assault me in my own cell when I was the most vulnerable being starved of any blood or food...this collar wraps tight around my neck...giving me shocks if I disobeyed..." she rubbed her neck "What about you, red? Still got that rusty red hair i like or did they make you shave it off?"

    ----

    Eddie nodded at Isabellas words, smiling "Yeah you're right. He needed to be behind bars and when you do bad deeds, you get what's coming". 'Guy is a freak' Venom growled that made Eddie's eyes flutter a bit from annoyance of Venom messing with his head. Eddie finished his drink and food, smiling up at her as she grabbed the tab for her order "I got it, remember? I pay for it...think of this as a date." He winked as he used his cash to pay both of their food. He heard his phone ring and went to go grab it out of his pocket, pressing the answer button "Detective Mulligan" he spoke as Venom growled 'Dick'.

    "Eddie you need to head to prison in the next hour, Cletus wants to make final remarks to you as his last wish before hitting the chair. You need to head up there now unless you don't want the last of that scoop on your big story. Hurry your ass up" he hung up the phone. Eddie stared at his phone with a raised brow, putting the phone away "Guess we are seeing the crazed killer one last time before the injections tomorrow...you ready? It's not going to be a pretty encounter so if you want to stay back you can, I don't want you uncomfortable.." he said with true concern and a soft smile "Maybe he won't be so cruel if he got that phone call in but be prepared for the worst."

    Cletus smiled when he finally heard her voice. It was a relief to hear. He leaned closer to the speaker as if he was getting closer to Willoh. "I'm here, darling," he said. He wished to actually see her. Her voice was a little different from the last time he heard it, but he could still recognize her. It was just from her maturing up, but he still loved her voice. He would love it until the end of time. "I know it's been ages since we last talked, and I'm so thankful to at least hear you. How I wish it could be a video call. I could look at you again," he said, hearing his own sadness in his voice. He didn't what her to hurt or cry for him because he didn't like the thought of her in pain.

    Cletus listed to her talk about their past at the orphanage, and he could feel for her. He remembered everything she talked about like it was yesterday. "I miss you, Willoh. I wish that things have turned out so differently. I wish that we had run off together before they had separated us," he said. He felt anger build in him as she talked about how he was treated. How dare they deprave her of her needs? He was wishing for a way to save her and to end her misery, but he was locked in a cell and about to be executed. "I still have my red hair that you love so much. I had fought them brutally so that they wouldn't cut it because I had remembered how much you had loved it," he said, wanting to give her something.

    ***

    Isabella ate the last of her food, enjoying the fact that it was mainly just them at the diner. It made it just a little more intimate between them. She smiled when Eddie made the move to pay for it, and honestly she hadn't expected him too. "Well, I think this was a good date," she said, smiling at him. "Thank you." Isabella watched as Eddie's phone rang. She was curious to hear who it was. Of all people, she didn't really care all that much for Detective Mulligan. She had met him a handful of times, and each time he always acted like she was in the way. She couldn't figure out what it was that she had done to him to make him feel that way, but she found it in her best interest to just avoid him.

    Isabella raised an eyebrow in question until Eddie spoke up. "I'm not going to stay behind. I started this out with you; I might as well see it until the end," she said, shrugging her shoulders. Though she had to admit she was a little bit freaked out about going to see that serial killer again. She was curious as to what this was going to be about though she could guess Cletus was pissed that we had found the bodies and totally ignored his wishes and didn't talk to him all that much. "I'm prepared for the worst when it comes to that guy. I know better than to expect him to be well behaved, but I want to be there with you at the very least," she said.
