The Path II



The scene opens up looking outside of the Semi truck driving down the highway...Its a humid day, the dew point is high...the sky tints to a faint orange, a good day for tornados....Jaymz has drivin all night long, and he still sets at the steering wheel, navigating the way...We see a sign come up over the horizion and as we get closer we see it says, "Syvil - next three exits"...Jaymz passes mile marker 185 and gets off the highway at the next exit...He downshifts the truck and takes a right at the stoplight...He drives south down Gentry Street...Highland is a small town, Gentry being the towns main street...The street is filled with mosly older buildings....A few small businessees: insurance agents, daycares, attorneys, fast food resturants, gas stations and a grocery store...The people of Highland go about their daily business, cars lined up on either side of the street...Jaymz watches the people walk down the sidewalks as he sits at at stoplight...Everybody seems to know no stranger...They all mengle and chat with every person that passes..The light turns green and Jaymz continues down Gentry Road....He hits a few more stop lights and works his way up the road...He comes over a hill as the business side begins to give way to residential side of Syvil..he turns into the gas station, a Conoco...actually the last business on this far side of the street...He pulls around to the back and squeezes the semi in between two others...Jaymz glances to the back, the cameraman pans back there...

There is a cot and a tv in the back and as we look at the cot, we see that the sheets are stained red and pulled up over a lump on the cot...A shoe hangs out and we see its the driver of the truck. He gets up, takes a few steps to the back and throws the sheet up a little...we see the mans boots and pants, Jaymz reaches for his back pocket and pulls out his wallet...He turns back to the driver seat and goes through the wallet...He pulls out the drivers license..the picture is of a man in his fourties, balding with a handlebar mustache...Tyler Howle from Montana the license says. Jaymz throws it in the floorboard and pulls out the money...two twenties and a five....He takes his own wallet out, the first bill being a hundred, and stuffs it in...Jaymz leaves the engine running as he hops out and walks towards the Conoco...He goes around front and walks inside...Several people glance up and look his way....Some staring for a while, but most looking away as soon as he looked at them....He walked back to the glass doors on the right side, the one with the beer....He pulls out a twelve pack and makes his way back to the cash register...He pays for his beer and makes his way back to the truck...He gets back in and tears the case open...He takes a few drinks before rolling the windows down...He lights up a cigarette, takes a few drags and tosses it out...Earlier in the day as Jaymz driving he informed the cameraman that he wont be leaving. He now goes where Jaymz goes, his own personal cameraman...We watch Jaymz drink the beer as his eyes get heavy close a few times...He finally leans his head back and drifts off....

----------------------------------------


Everyone stands bundled up standing on the front porch...The moon is high in the sky, reflecting the light off the snow lighting up the night....The night is still and the people stand there, not speaking...We see thier breathe rise into the night as they stand silent...We hear the screaming of a woman inside the small one room house...A few moments later the screaming stops and we her a few cries for a newborn child, then all goes silent in the house....The door handle turns, the door creaks open and the man stesp out....He is shaking, sweat pours from his brow and covers the collar of his shirt...His eyes are wide and darting form place to place....a few of the people outside look curiously at him as he faces them...A smile appears on his face as his eyes still dart from one place to another...He cant keep his hands still, he constantly moves even as he stands there....

Well, Im sure I will be seeing you all sometime down the road....I must go now.

An older man begins to say something, but the man quickly silenced him...He took a few steps off the porch, stoped and turned back to face them....

....I told her....I warned her...

He put his hat on, lowered his heads and houlders...stuck his hands in his pockets and walked off into the snow....The people watched in shock as he walks off into the snow...They then suddenly forgot him as the voice from a woman came from the house...The rushed into the house and flocked around the bed...The lady lay set up in bed, a newborn clutched to her chest...She stared off into the distance, as if not even seeing them...They called her by her name, Sara. They all smiled and talked all at the same time..drooling over the new baby...She then seemed to snap out of her trance...

...where is he? ...He left didnt he?....

The olderst lady of the group, we assume her mother, spoke..

He left honey, Im sure he just went up to the store

She could tell by the look in her eyes that her daughter didnt believe her, and looked away quickly...Sara then went back staring into space...Her family tried to talk her, but she wouldnt respond....One of her sisters tried to hold the baby swaddled in her arms, but she held him tighter not letting go....They stayed for a while, but she paid no attention...After a while they became worried and all waited outside as her mother tried to comfort her....She would have none of it...Eventually she gave up and told her she would come and check on her in the morning....She walked out the door and the room was silent...we see out the window that the all pile into a car and drive off into the white night....Sara sat there, then pulled the baby away from her, took the blanket away form its face...It looked like every other baby, just a little bigger than most...It had brown hair and its eyes closed...A few moments later the baby began to stir...It slowly opens its eyes, it seemed to grin...It eyes came open, solid black. No white in the eyes anywhere..She shuddered and quickly pulled the blanket back over him...She then went into a trance again, staring off into space....Her eyes filled with tears, she never cried..never made a sound as tears rolled down her cheeks..She drifted off to sleep.

A few hours later, still sitting up in bed holding the baby, who never cried...her eyes shot open..They darted around the room, then down at the baby...She pulled the blanket from its face, and there it was...smiling at her, eyes black...She quickly covered him again, set him down...She tried to make her way out of bed but she was shaking so bad she could harly walk...She left the baby in the center of the bed and staggered over to the corner...She sat facing the corner with her knees drawn up, her hands holding her head with her head down...She beagan to pull her hair and we hear a ripping sound, almost like cloth tearing...She pulled two huge chunks of hair, pieces of her skin pulled from her scalp...Her head begant o bleed instantly..She dropped the mess of hair and went back for more, and again and again....Blood poured down her entire head and a mess of bloody hair lay all over her....She withdrew her knees from her chest and began to rub on her stomach...she lifted the gown she was wearing and looked down at where her baby had been for the last nine months...

...Thats where it came from......what have I done....

She gritted her teeth, a small scream excaping as she dug at the skin on her stomach with her finger nail...instant red welps, and a few spots of blood appeared...She attacked the skin again and kept going at it untill she was covered in blood...She workedso far past the skin that she actually began tearing herself open...A puddle of blood extended almost halfway across the small one room house as she dug deeper...She sat up to her knees, became dizzy at the loss of blood and placed her hands on the floor...Her intestins began to spill out of her as her eyes rolled into the back over her head as he had virtually no blood left in her...The only sound that remained in the house was the small happy sounds the baby made...

----------------------------------------
Jaymz wakes up and looks at the clock...2:46am. He pulls out a cigarette, lights it and takes few drags..a moment later he sets it in the ashtray and steps out of the semi, stretches and looks around...Its a quiet night, just the hum of the trucks running can be heard...He steps back into the semi and speaks...


Its the calm of the night...Most people sleep right now. ...but those who dont, what good can they be doing? ...What good can you be doing at this hour in the morning? ...Mostly thieves and crooks. ...other people who indulge in mind altering substances, and get killed when they try and drive....This time of night is when the "different" people come out....I watch for them, I find them interesting. ..You are right Darkness, I am a child born on Evil. ....Is something that as a child I really wasnt aware of, but I came to realize what I was as I grew older....The powers I have, no child could control. ...I knew what was inside of me, but I didnt know how to control it, or exactly what it was....I remember as a child, I did some terrible things....Things that I didt really want to do, but I did anyway....It was like I was a prisoner of my own body...I could see what I was doing, I knew what I was doing but I couldnt stop myself....I would ask "Why am I doing this? ...And why cant I stop?" ...That was when I started to learn the things that I could do....I learned how to control it a little, not soo much...but just a little....There were nights when I would wake up and get out of bed...I would be asking myself, why didnt I put my shoes on? ...I couldnt control it, I was a prisoner in my own body..I would remember walking out on those nights, walking out of my house and down the street....but thats all that I would remember. I would wake up the next morning, my feet would be black. ...I would go down into the kitchen where my mothers family ate breakfast....They would be reading the paper....and on those nights that I remembered going out, the paper always told of terrible things...of people being killed, people being burned alive and things that authorities couldnt explain....My family never told me any of it, but I read it. ...They never spoke to me about it, because they knew. The knew who was doing it. ...The rest of the town thought a serial killer was on the loose.. You should have seen it. All throughout the day people would keep their kids inside, unable to play outside. ....People were that scared. They thought this killer would come and get them in the daylight...They thought this killer was a large sadistic man....The pictures in the papers depicted an older white man...He was rather fat, they made him wear glasses, freckles on his cheeks. ...There were several people in the town who resembled the man and the authorities questioned them vigorously. ...This went on for about two months, eleven people were killed. ....Honestly, I can tell you that I neer killed those people. ....How could I have done something that I dont remember? ....Or I should ask, how do I even know for sure that I did it? ...Im only telling you what I know. ...Deep down inside, I know. I know what happened to those people, the thing insdie of me killed those people, not me. Look at this night....There are people out there right now, at this time of night who are doing the same things...People like me, and again there are people who know what they are doing and do it for fun. ....Yes Darkness, I am a human....I know that you may find that hard to believe, but its true....I know it to be the truth. How do I know? I've died before. I've died on an operating table, and the biggest mistake those doctors ever made was to bring me back....

Of course, they dont know that. They didnt know what infested me deep inside....I can recall in very well....Back in my hometown...I went on a break from the WAWF and decided that I needed to go back to my hometown. ...A few of the people there remembered me...Most of them from my childhood moved away, the parents fearing for their lives and thier children as well....Anyway, I went to a bar sometime as the sun was going down...I walked in and sat down at the bar, ordered a beer. ...A man tapped me on the shoulder..I looked around to see him, and I knew the face...It was older, but a face from my youth....Only then his hairline has receded, he had lost a few teeth gained a few wrinkles...I saw his hand come around with a knife, he plunged it for my chest..I moved, so he didnt get his desired spot. ...He got me in the chest..I rolled off the bar stool and grabbed his foot. I pulled him down, took the knife out of my chest and and stuck it in his neck...The took me to the hospital, told me I was very lucky to survive...the Law never became involved...Too many people saw the incident, so they claimed me killing him as self defence. ..Oh yes, I am human. Never doubt that....because one day I will die, and so will you....But the difference is, is that you will die before I will. ....And when you die Darkness, you will go straight to Hell....and Im sure that you know that....And hopefully, when I die. You will be standing there waiting for me, welcoming me to the Pits of Black fire....I look forward to the moment and I cant wait for it. You can keep on name calling, its nothing new to me....Ive heard it all my life....No, Im not using scare tactics Darkness....as I told you earlier, I dont do this to please you or do it for your own enjoyment....I do it for myself, I dot it beacuse I like it....I do it beacuse I get joy from it....Its ok for you not to understand what is real and what isnt...Most people, as like yourself, are confused as well.....Most people here in the OWC seem to doubt me, and thats fine....I will just make an expamle out of them all. ....I will start with you. ...I wouldnt call it an advantage either Darkness. Im sure you lay in your bed at night wondering how I do these things, laying awake till all hours in the morning, staring up at the ceiling...following the cracks with your eyes, tracing them all along the ceiling....Dont let it bother you too much, the things that I can do to you I cant do in the ring, and you know why...I allready told you. ...Why would I join the circus? ...So I can have people line up and point at me? ...to poke at me with sticks? ..To become nothing but a side-show for people to laugh at? ...What fun is that? ...Why do I wrestle? Well, Darkess..its easy...I love hurting people, its my passion, its my favorite thing to do. ..I would have no power at a circus, it would be a boring life. Wouldnt it? I wouldnt get to mangle people there, and plus the money here is much better as well, and thats always a deciding factor, right? ...Where else would I get to hurt people and get away with it? ...where else could I have people screaming in pain and not have to worry about who will try and track me down and lock me up? ...Where? ...I dont know of any other place...I know this is wrestling...I do know how to wrestler even though I more of a brawler

....People try to downgrade brawlers, but look Darkness....Who hold the OWC World Title? A brawler. ...Not some stupid "techinal wrestler" ....Those days are done. The change has come and now it is here. The OWN is no longer the days of a "techinal wrestler" holding the Title...I hold it now, and its in the hand of a brawler. Dont be worried about my business. It concerns you none. ..I have things that I have to do, but dont worry Darkness....I'll still be there to see that you understand you are not championship material. You want to know weher I am? ...Ok, I'll tell you. I'll be headed to Philly in a few days...There you go. Dont worry about it. And I bet that you wont even touch me before then, how much you want to put on it? ...So come to Philly and get me. ..I'll be waiting for you. I'll be the first one here....Dont you know that as Supreme Overlord I get to decide where I want the events to be held? ...I dont have to be back in Steel City, because you, and the rest of the OWC will be following me. ....You are almost like my Minions, my followers. ...You will follow me as I travel, and I will decide and pinpoint where I will be, and thats where you and the rest of the OWC will be at. You will follow me, for you have no choice....Now, in the event that I wasnt Supreme Overlord, then I will have to come back to whereever the event is being held. No problem. An Airplane is pretty quick. ..I almost laughed when you said that I will "get down on my knees and bow to the new Supreme Overlord." ...Come on Darkness, you act as if your someone that I should fear....Well, I dont. Someone who does not deserve this title wont have it very long is they soemhow manage to win it....Oh wait, thats a perfect example of you, isnt it? ...That was allready happened hasnt it? ...You won by cheating, right? ...and you lost in quickly, right? ...Well, I think we have come to a conclusion on that issue. ...The facts are right there in front of you, in fact..your the one that told me the facts. ...You are a sad man Darkness and I feel sorry for you....You have such high expectations that will never be reached....You have one huge hurdle standing in front of you, and your looking at it right now. ...Have you been hanging out with Erik Black? ...Thats not a good thing...Maybe he can tell you how bad he hurt the next day after I dropped him over twenty feet onto cold metal. I see, you want to jump on the bandwagon and tell me that I drink "bongwater"...Wow, now your using Eriks material...As may times as he told me that last week I figured that he would have copyrighted the term by now. ..If your smart, you will...That way Erik can pay you some money everytime he says it....and trust me, you would be rich...he says it alot. And do NOT ever comapar me to 8ball. He was a weak man, I got to him inside his head and he had that whole week to think about what the was getting himself into.....I will never give up Darkness...I may step into that ring and lose someday, but I will never give up....8ball would have had to kill me, because "I Quit" would never be uttered from my mouth....I would have killed myself before I said that. I am confident, and I always will be...Every time I step into the ring, I think that I am going to win....What other mindframe would you want someone to be in? ...a mind-set that they are going to lose? ...You will that way....And you, like me, are going to go into the cage expecting to win.....

I have no dreams of hope, or happiness....Therefor there is nothing for you to shatter in that department...The only thing that would bother me is that I would lose to a weak soul that you are...and that you would take my Title from me. ...Thats what I would lose Darkness...There are no dreams for me...I know what I must do in my life and nothing can change that, and no one can stop me. I do know what it takes to be Supreme Overlord, Im not half of it as you say....Im all of it. I will be the Greatest Supreme Overlord that you have ever seen...I know that you have been around here for quite sometime, and you have seen many World Champions....but you have never seen one of my caliber...I will run this place in a whole different direction than anybody has ever done...Evil runs the OWC now, and this evil knows how to do it. Dont question me on how to do my job, who are you? ...Who are you to sit back and tell me what I cant do? ..You cant win the title, so you better shut your mouth....Why dont you try and spend some time as Supreme Overlord and see how you do....I dont think you will do a very good job....You will be the same as all the others before me...You will claim to be the highest power but never really do anything with the OWC....I will. It starts this week...The OWC will follow me, will travel where I go....Thats just one of the many things I plan to do as Supreme Overlord....and I hope you like Philly, because as I told you, thats where we will be....I'll be there tomorrow. So come and find me. I'll be waiting for you....You are below me, and you will do as I say in the rules of the OWC power from the Supreme Overlord....I will never bow down to you Darkness, it will be the other way around and that will never change....Im not a prisoner of peoples expierements, im not going to be kept in a room with needles and tubes stuck in me. ...Im not here to provide answers to the worlds questions, Science is nothing but an organized system of ignorance...I will not provide anything to them...Like you, they may think of me as a freak as well...But to each man is his own. Call me what you want, its nothing but explanation of me inside of your own mind....You think like them, you call names and blast away at what you dont understand. Do you honestly think that I care what you think of me?

Jaymz looks at his watch one more time, kicks back in the seat and goes back to sleep
