The Twilight Twenty-Five
Prompt: rapacious
Pen name: starshinedown
Pairing: Edward
Rating: T

a/n: Edward, the rebellious years.

In the two years since he left Carlisle and Esme, Edward has touched the minds of truly repugnant individuals.

The mind of this man, on the side streets of San Francisco, is one of the worst he's encountered. He takes indiscriminately, uncaring of the damage he does to those who survive, thinking only of his own need to dominate, to punish.

When Edward hears his thoughts, he physically recoils. This is why he's left Carlisle's guidance. This type of human is the type he is meant to cull.

Of the two of them, Edward wonders, who is truly the monster?
