Aly held Eva in the corner—for she had blacked out again. Now the longer Eva remained under consciousness—the stronger the flames burning Seven became—with every passing second.

"Leave me!" Seven begged Olin, matching his gaze of helpless horror.

Olin stood up, dumbstruck as to what to do. He tensed in determination.

It turned his stomach to think of leaving his brother there, but he was noble enough to grant Seven's wish.

He started to back away, as Seven buckled and convulsed in the final spasms of a life force leaving a corpse-elect—until his body finally became limp and lifeless.

Eva resurfaced then—and seeing that Olin was leaving Seven to die—she then cried out in a loud sudden dismay:

"What the Hell are you doing?!?"

Aly held her back, but Eva's love was so strong, she would not relent without a fight before abandoning Seven.

She soon broke free from Aly's grip—and tried to dash past Olin. But he was too fast—caught her up—and carried her away. Aly followed behind—all the way down to the first floor—even as Seven continued to scream for help behind them.

Eva beat Olin's chest, breaking into tears, wondering how they could betray.


"Nothing we can do for him now."

"God damn you!!! LET GO OF ME!"

"Eva, please ..." Olin growled, setting her down—but he underestimated her—and she kneed him between the legs as hard as she could—buckling him to his knees. Her aim was true and force swift.

He could have used his otherworldy strength—and she would have been unable to escape—barring crushing her bones—but part of him knew she was right—despite Seven's wishes. It was only then that he thought of the River Payne.

Eva quickly dashed back upstairs.

"Seven I'm coming!" she called out, but she did not know what she would do when she got there—and when she hit the next landing, Seven's screams stopped al

would betray him, in a final show of will over his body, Seven began to let go, wishing it all were over now, rather than to be laying there at the end of the tunnel of existence, without even dear Eva by his side to send him off. He prayed for death come early.

'That's right, Olin. Such a good boy, doing as you're told … Come to Me now … Through the trees you will see a light … Follow it and there you will find Me, where we will share eternity together at last.'

So Olin started to march toward the trees and the light beyond, more under the influence now of his basic motor functions, than of his higher faculties.

In the back of his heart, he knew it was wrong what he was doing, but his soul had lost its clarity of voice in the sudden onrush of Faye's influence upon his heart.

It was these moments of decision that could ruin common man's soul for all redemption, but Olin was already a tainted scripture, never to lose eternity twice.

If he betrayed his brother for all of time, he could be Hers for the same. However, in the back of his mind, he knew, he was not truly her kind at all.

There was a second level chess game going on in the depths of his deliberation between whether he were more being played or in love with betrayal.
