I slash the air with my dagger; the blade comes in contact with Javier’s left cheek. He cries out in pain and clutches his slashed face.
“Don’t call me Jonathan.” I say. “My name is Leviathan. My name describes me as formidable. I cause fear, dread, and apprehension.”
“Please, Leviathan.” he says. “Don’t kill me. I lived a short life.”
“So, twenty-four years is not enough?”
“How did you know I’m twenty-four?”
“The same way that I can read your fear: Through the eyes.”
“I wanna see my parents again!!”
“Twenty-four years old, and you live with your parents?”
“Yes. I don’t care!! I wanna stay with them forever!!”
“You’ll see them again………..on the other side.”
Javier hides his face in his hands.
“Please,” he begs. “I’m begging you; don’t kill me!! I don’t want to die!!”
Ah, the magic words: I don’t want to die. It’s my turn to speak............

Only one person, his mysterious next door neighbor, sees him for what he really is. Will Leviathan's compulsion to kill lead him to an unexpected twist, or will he gleefully slip past all those who wish to end his reign of bloodshed?
