* Chapter 19: Finally, the End *

Indalecio looked out the window toward the night sky sadly. Thoughts raced through his head as quickly as you could blink.

"Hey," Cyril said, walking into the room. "What're you doing?"

"Just...thinking..." Indalecio said.

"Didn't we already have a reflection scene?"

"Oh hush..."

"Well...what're you thinking about?"

"Nothing..." Indalecio said.

"You're sure you don't need anything?"

"Nah, I'm alright..."

Cyril turned towards the door. "Alright," he said, opening it.

"Wait..." Indalecio said, opening a nearby desk drawer and taking out a small, silver object. "There is something you can do..."

"What?"

"You can burn in Hell!" Indalecio shouted, aiming the pistol at Cyril.

"Wait wait wait wait wait..." Cyril said nervously. "Just...put the gun down..."

"No!" Indalecio screamed. "I've had it up to here with you! Constantly annoying me and ruining our plans!"

"W-w-w-what about our truce?"

"To Hell with the truce!" he screamed, holding the gun as steady as a rock. "I'm going to deal with you once and for all!" He fired multiple shots, which ripped through Cyril's body like it was made out of paper.

"You...bastard..." Cyril said as he hit the far wall of the room. A bloody smear was left where he slid down. Indalecio laughed the laugh of a madman, drunken with rage and insanity.

"What the..." Filia said, bursting into the room. She saw the pistol in Indalecio's hand, and the corpse of Cyril, which was sitting against the wall. "Daddy! How could you?" she shouted.

Indalecio then turned the gun on her. "Don't tempt me," he said coldly.

"Daddy, please, snap out of it!" Filia pleaded. "Daddy!"

Indalecio fired. "Daddy!" Filia screamed, just before the bullet hit her.

"Daddy," Filia said gently to Indalecio. "Get up, you were sleeping."

Indalecio opened his eyes slowly. He was lying face down on the desk in front of the window, where he was sitting. A bright ray of sunshine went through the window and illuminated the desk. A small puddle of drool sparkled in the light.

"That was one odd dream..." Indalecio said.

"A nightmare?" Filia asked.

"No," Indalecio said. "In fact, it was strangely liberating..."

An ominous chord echoed through the halls. "...The hell?" Indalecio thought aloud.

"Oh, that's just the band," Filia said. "They were up all night working on a cover for that one song of Uncle Cyril's."

"Ah," Indalecio said. "That's good...maybe I should join them?"
