Disclaimer: I don't own any character from Darkman, somebody else does…
After he gave Jenny the synthetic skin he was finally able to
complete, instead of deep depression, he feels more enlightened for he was
able to save a very precious child from endless misery that he usually
feels when he often remembers the state his in.
Peyton Westlake thought as he reminisce the development of the past
months. It as been nearly half a year since that incident and yet he
wonders if he would feel being appreciated and cared for again. It was the
only time that he felt that he mattered and did something special, not to
mention being accepted after the event that forced him to become Darkman.
He was nowhere near in completing his work than before, although he
was able to move on a new level on his skin, he wasn't able to complete it.
If in the past he's synthetic skin was able to hold up after 99 min. and 99
seconds now the skin can hold up in 3 hours giving him more time to prowl
the streets and keep an eye on danger.
And speaking of danger, Peyt was broken from his reverie when his
alarm censors sounded "INTRUDER ALERT". He looks at his monitor screen and
saw an intruder leaning on the walls for support before dropping on the
ground. From the angle his watching he can't tell for sure if it's a girl
or a man or even if it's a trapped to lure him out from his hiding place
like before. But the doctor inside him is still strong and the call to heal
is urging him to see if the intruder is indeed hurt.
With a grunt he strode to the door and into the intruder. When he was
on his way to the intruder he noticed the blood painted on the walls,
definitely that wasn't there before, it seems that the intruder is indeed
hurt. But he was not sure if the who it was and how did he arrive on his
place, he wondered if there are people waiting for him to show ready to
jumped on him but from his enhanced senses the only thing in the tunnel
with him is the faint stirrings coming from the injured person before him.
Once that Peyt was sure that nobody is there ready to jumped at him
once he showed up, he kneeled and examine the person, when he reached out
he can tell that the person was bleeding badly and that there is already an
amount of blood had been lost. He turned the intruder to see on what is
the extent of his injuries. After he turned the person he was shocked at
what he saw.
"It's a woman."
