He got home on the first day of his 10th grade to his monstrous parents who were totally oblivious to him coming home. He went up to his room and started dancing around his room because that day Christine had asked him to see a movie with just them. He was smiling and just so happy about that day until his dad slammed open the door.

He stopped right in his tracks. "What is your problem? Why do you have the need to be so stupid and obnoxious!" his dad yelled. "I wasn't doing anything." He said with a monotone. His dad slapped him. "Don't mumble when you talk to people! Now say you're sorry."

"I'm sorry." He said a little aggravated and on the verge of tears. His dad smacked him again even harder. "Don't use that tone with me boy!"

"What's going on up there?" Erik's mom yelled from downstairs as she stomped up.

"Your son has an attitude with me!" he replied.

She came in the room.

"What did I tell you about you attitude Erik!" she yelled. He didn't say a word knowing he would get hurt again. "You answer your mother when she is talking to you!" his dad yelled. He balled his hand into a fist and swung it at Erik. In an instant he had dodged the swing and had bolted for the stairs. He was chased around the house as his mother and father both threatened and yelled at him chasing him around the house.

He ran into the kitchen and tripped and fell in to the counter. He looked up and saw the knife block. His dad came up angrily behind him and grabbed his shoulder. Without thinking he had grabbed the knife and swung around stabbing his father in the heart. His dad fell to the ground gasping for air with blood gushing from his chest.

His mother screamed and ran to the dieing man on the floor. She grabbed his hand as he bled out on the floor. She looked up crying with rage in here eyes. "You're a disgrace to me! When I first saw u after birth I never wanted you!" she yelled "I should have gotten rid of you when I had the chance!"

Erik was in tears that suddenly stopped when he heard those last few words. He felt hatred over flowing his heard. With his cat like reflexes he had his mother in a sleeper hold and had her passed out after a few minutes.

When she awoke she was hanging upside down from the top of the stairs. She was in a panicked state, unable to realize the more she moved, the more the rope lessened its weak tie to the railing. She was struggling to get free. She had not thought her plan all the way through though. She had loosened the tie around her ankles just in time for the railing to give weigh and the last thing she saw was the white flash of Erik's mask who was sitting on a chair watching the incident follow through as he planned with a wicked smile on his face.
