It would come soon. It could not be avoided, not be cheated. But he had resolved himself to it, this end of his.
It was the only way he could save his family — from himself — with his monstrously powerful mind and the seed within, a tiny alien web in his brain, amplifying his thoughts and broadcasting them as physical force.
He was a detonator, a bio-explosive, a living bomb, but one that did not expend itself in the blast.
The operation was to happen soon. Seven black-ops troops, in unknown positions, had set up their equipment and were ready to shoot at any moment.
He looked down, saw the red dots from the targeting sights on his chest as he felt the charge building within. He felt himself shake as the first rounds impacted, penetrating his chest.
Everything went forever dark when the next hit him between the eyes.
