Brett. How had he gotten away from Jason?
"So close to getting away, so, so close." He grinned, holding up his knife. "It ends now."
Was this how it was going to end, by Brett's hand? After all that she had been through, this was it?
She backed up. He walked towards her, smiling a cold, merciless smile. From behind him, Erin saw a shiny glint, a reflection of sun off cold hard metal. Within seconds, that cold hard metal had cleaved itself between Brett's neck and shoulder, cutting him almost to the chest.
Erin covered her mouth, horrified. Brett's eyes were wide with shock. He stumbled a few feet and fell to the ground. Jason stepped forward, put his foot on Brett's back and ripped the blade from his neck. Blood streamed out. He groaned. He wasn't dead. He wasn't dead! Jason looked at her, then back at the fallen man. He seemed to consider something for a minute, then brought the blade down on the man's skull. It cracked loudly, splattering the grass and trees with blood and brain.
They stood together for a moment, blood dripping from Jason's machete. It was over. It was really over. Brett was dead. Amy was...dead. A cold pang hit her heart. She had lost one of the best friends she had known. She was down in Brett's basement, rotting away. She wouldn't let it go at that. She would give her friend a proper burial.
And Jason was here now. She was safe. They could finally go home.
A/N: It's been a long time coming to finish up the story. At first, I had wanted it to continue for only a few chapters, but one turned into three turned into...god, how many now? 45? They were short chapters, updated only when I could, but by some of the reviews I was given, a few people really enjoyed the ride.
Thank you everyone for your reviews. And thank you to the other people who PM-ed me mercilessly until I updated another chapter. Seriously, it helped keep me on my game because I wasn't even going to finish the story. But, now it's done. Story closed. The end.
I'm currently trying to work on another one of my stories- some of you have read it. 'Where'd You Get Those Peepers'- under Jeepers Creepers. It's not an obsession love story like this one was, though I shamefully admit that's what I really enjoy. Well, maybe it'll turn into one...you never know. ;)
