" Doug stay ba- " Too sudden to react. Too quick to fight back. Too soon to be taken. The man who had survived so much. Survived the hurricane. Survived the trials. Escaped the Skin-Walker. Endured nature's wrath. Saved from the Trickster. Outsmarted the ticks. Made it through the hospital. Fought their way to the fire department. Taken in the vents. Story left unfinished, but the ending written. Not Dead Yet.
