Just before the hood was slipped over his head, he
looked out at the few who had gathered there to watch him die. There in
the small group, he saw Wesley Blake. Edward couldn’t miss Wes’ bright
blue eyes. Even in the dense fog, Blake’s eyes stood out…crystal blue.
Edward remembered back to when he and Lucy first
met Wesley. It was on the ship when they were all coming to America
from Ireland. He remembered thinking what a fine fellow Wes was
then...smart and funny.
The hood was placed over Edward’s head and then
the noose around his neck. Edward’s thoughts drifted back in time. He
could see the horror in his mind’s eye and hear the awful sounds. He
remembered the pungent animal smells of blood and pheromones in the
air… and then the trapdoor was opened and all went black.
