The Three-in-One, pt. 5

He grew more and more agitated as he talked. His pacing back-and-forth heightened my nervousness beyond what it had first been when he suddenly showed up.

His increased distress also caused Buddy to grow restless. The dog’s low growls had become louder, and I found it impossible to keep him quiet by then.

“So, what now?” I asked.

“First, I destroy Johanna and John,” he answered.

“Don’t you mean murder?” I asked.

“No,” he said. “You cannot murder what is replicated, only destroy.”

“I don’t understand,” I said.

“You will,” he said. “Right now, I must go. They are tracking me.”

“Where will you go?” I asked.

“A mad man named Mel, who disappeared in 1978 your time, went to Venus,” he said. “I shall join him.”

Suddenly, he began to vibrate and glow before evaporating into nothingness.

Buddy sprang to his paws, his white and brown hair hackled from neck to tail, and barking in confused terror. His fading from sight left me disoriented and with a deep sense of nausea, leaving me wanting to vomit.

I found it hard to keep my balance as I tried standing, and in the end, I sat, remaining there until I came back to my senses.
