That was our family. Just the three of us. All of Mom and Dad's relatives had died, so there was no-one but us. We didn't mind though. We didn't need anybody else. We were happy together.
The dream had finally ended. It was all real. And I had to stop him. The obvious answer was to tell someone what he was planning. But I couldn't do that. I loved him even if he had gone crazy.
It's all a big lie, you hear me? I think we need to run away, just for a little while. Until he gets better. Sooner or later Dad's gonna kill somebody and you know it.
Nothing that crazy could be real.
Dad told us that there were moments when people could just disappear without anyone knowing where they went or why. He said those were the moments when God's Hands could take you. According to Dad, nothing, not even a camera, could catch us. We were invisible when we were God's Hands.
I started digging that goddamn hole, but I did not pray. I would not. I hated God, I despised Him. My hatred helped me dig, kept me going. Dad's or God's or whoever's plan it was, it would not work on me. I knew what Dad was doing was wrong, and nothing was gonna change that.
I wanted to run away... far away, but I still couldn't leave Adam, no matter how crazy Dad was turning. Besides, there was nowhere to go.
He can make me dig this stupid hole, but he can't make me pray, you hear?
Sometimes truth defies reason.
I'm just yolkin' with ya, egghead.
Boys! Boys, look at this. We got them all. It won't be long now. The angel came again last night and told me that God will be sending us a list of the first 10 demons soon.
Get down there. It has to be done. It's God's will. Come on, do it like I showed you, the neck first, Fenton.
You didn't think anyone knew about that, did you? But God saw you! And you can't escape God's wrath!
What has to be done has to be done. So kiddo, does it have to be done?
Are we gonna go get us a demon, Dad?
It's not fair! All I get to see are demons and Fenton gets to see God!
