The grin on his face sent a shiver down her spine.
“Who are you?” She spat as she hugged Julie in her arms. The man laughed.
“Why should I tell you?”
“Because I’m going to die anyways.” Lilac glared at him. “So there would be no harm in telling me. Would there?”
“Ah, now that is a little misconception you have there.” He grinned at her with a smirk. “No one’s dead here. They’re just... changing.”
“The first one is ready...” His smile widen as he raised one of his arms. Suddenly a moan erupted behind Lilac and when she turned around she was faced by Carl. Except his skin was now a sickly gray, his eyes matching the man’s.
“My little boy...” He hissed. “How are you?”
Carl’s mouth opened as he tried to gurgle something out. His teeth gleamed brightly, pearly white, just like the man’s. The man laughed.
“You haven’t yet developed your speech yet have you?”
Carl gurgled again. The man turned to Lilac.
“You should know who I am now.” His cat eyes shined with malice. Lilac stared at him for a moment before she spoke up again.
“A demon.” She hissed as she backed away.
“Little girl, backing away will not save you.” He swung his gun nonchalantly.
“Why haven’t you shot me yet?” She demanded.
“Because you have use for me.”
“What would I be useful for?”
“Something that you will find out soon.” He looked at a clock hanging on the wall. “I am late. I say good luck.” He smiled at her one more time. Then he turned and left, locking the door behind him.
