  • Liu woke up to the sound of gunshots coming from  inside his house. There were panicked screams.  

  • Sounds of a violent struggle. He sat bolt uprightterrified and drenched in sweat, as he heard  

  • footsteps getting closer to his room. It'd already  been the worst year of his life, but things were  

  • about to take another turn straight into Hell. And  this time, Liu would bring a demon back with him.

  • A figure trudged down the hallway towards  Liu's bedroom door, having already taken two  

  • lives that night. He gripped a kitchen  knife in his scarred, twitching hand,  

  • still dripping with the blood of its  recent prey. He chuckled softly to himself,  

  • amused at the carnage of it all. Now, he  was going to add one more body to the pile.

  • Liu's body.

  • Back in his bedroom, Liu could feel his heart  rise into his throat. The door creaked open,  

  • and he saw the figure looming in the shadows.

  • Jeff?” Liu asked, seeing the figure  slowly come into focus. “Is that you?”

  • The figure chuckled again, and raised  his index finger up to its lipless mouth.

  • Shhhh,” he said. “Go to sleep.”

  • Before Liu could get another word in, the figure  - presumably his brother, Jeff - charged at him,  

  • brandishing the blade. He couldn't help but  notice that his brother's white hoodie was  

  • already splattered with blood, and that he'd  cut a wide, Joker-like grin into his own face.

  • The awful sight of his brother's ruined  face caused him to let his guard down,  

  • just for a moment.

  • Big mistake.

  • Jeff, who'd seemingly gone utterly insane,  

  • had no intention of cutting him any slackIn fact, his only intention was to cut him.

  • Jeff stabbed Liu in the belly, causingshockwave of pain to rock through his body.  

  • Worse than the pain was the sense of betrayal  - his own brother, who he'd sacrificed so much  

  • for - was genuinely trying to kill him. Liu cried  out in pain, tears cascading down his cheeks.

  • Jeff stabbed him again, and whispered, “I  said, go to sleep! Just like mom and dad!”

  • In that moment, Liu connected all the  dots: The gunshots he'd heard earlier,  

  • they were the blasts of his father's shotgun,  

  • fired off in an unsuccessful attempt to save him  and his wife from their youngest son's wrath.

  • Jeff's mother had been the one that first  discovered him in the bathroom, mutilating  

  • his face into the nightmare we all know and fear  today. Where she saw fear and disgust, Jeff had  

  • seen beauty and potential. His mother would  be punished dearly for not seeing what he saw.

  • She ran back into her bedroom and implored her  husband to grab the gun, knowing on some primal  

  • level that her son was already gone. But  they were too slow. By the time two shells  

  • were loaded into the gun, Jeff was already  running across the room, knife at the ready.

  • His father unloaded both barrels, but Jeff,  

  • now imbued with killer instinctwas able to dodge the buckshot.

  • A few minutes later, when Jeff left  the room, both of his parents were dead  

  • and gutted on the bed. Liu would be  next, unless he got extremely lucky. Or,  

  • depending on your perspective, extremely unlucky.

  • He could feel himself getting light-headed  from the pain as Jeff twisted the knife  

  • in his guts, cackling like a madman while  he did it. Liu tried to hit his brother,  

  • and throw him off, but Jeff was too  strong. He seemed to just ignore the pain,  

  • as he prepared to plunge the  knife into Liu once more.

  • Liu reached out onto his bedside table and grabbed  the first thing his desperate hand could get a  

  • hold of: Not a weapon, but a rosary. In sheer  panic, he wrapped the rosary around Jeff's neck,  

  • and began to pull it tight, until he could  begin to see his brother strain and wheeze.

  • His grip on the blade was getting looserHis pale face was slowly becoming a ruddy  

  • purple from the oxygen deprivationAll the while, Jeff slashed at Liu,  

  • leaving a crisscross of deep  cuts on his face and torso.

  • With the last of his strength, Liu reeled back,  

  • and delivered a powerful kick to Jeff's  gut, knocking his brother off of his body.

  • Outside, police cars were converging in  the suburb. Jeff and Liu's neighborhood  

  • was a quiet place, so gunshots and screams  in the middle of the night were certain to  

  • catch people's attention. Incidentallythey'd arrived just in time to save Liu's  

  • life - but as everyone would later learnthis isn't necessarily a good thing.

  • When Jeff saw the red and blue flashing lights,  

  • he decided to cut his losses and splitleaving Liu to bleed to death on the bed.

  • Thoughts of sadness and betrayal swam  through Liu's head as he lost consciousness,  

  • expecting to never wake back up againHis entire family was already dead or  

  • murderously insane - the only question now was  which one of these Liu himself would become.

  • How had he gotten here?

  • Life seemed so normal a few months back, when they  were moving into the neighborhood. It was him,  

  • Jeff, and their parents. Liu and his parents  had never really seen eye to eye - Jeff was  

  • always the golden child, they wrote Liu  off early as a future burnout. But he  

  • and his brother were thick as thievesLiu was incredibly protective of Jeff,  

  • and would happily put everything on  the line to keep him out of trouble.

  • He just didn't expect that  he'd need to do it so quickly.

  • The incident at the bus stop changed everythingHe and Jeff were just standing there,  

  • minding their own business, when RandyKeith, and Troy - a local gang of teenage  

  • thugs - rolled onto the scene. What  started as a hostile conversation  

  • quickly turned into a straight-up shakedownas the three bullies all pulled blades,  

  • and threatened Jeff and Liu to hand over  any money or valuables they had on them.

  • That's when Jeff had his first little snapJust recalling it terrified Liu. It was the  

  • first time his sweet little baby brother didn't  seem himself, like a switch had been flipped in  

  • his brain. He gave Randy a brutal punch in the  nose, before grabbing and snapping his wrist.  

  • Jeff then effortlessly disarmed him, and  used his knife to stab Keith in the arm.

  • It was almost like some outside force had  taken over him. Liu had known right then,  

  • on some level, that things would never be  the same again. But there would still be  

  • a lot of pain in store for Liu before  Jeff the Killer would truly be born.

  • Randy and Keith needed to go  to the hospital. As a result,  

  • the authorities soon came knocking on Jeff's  door. However, Liu had no intention of letting  

  • Jeff go to Juvie for this. His brother may  have been frightening in his brutality,  

  • but he was still acting in self-defenseThe bullies had threatened them first!

  • Liu did the only thing he could to protect  his brother from his own impulsive actions:  

  • He confessed to Jeff's crimes, and accepted the  charges. Because his parents had always thought so  

  • little of him in the first place, they were happy  to believe that he was behind the assault, and let  

  • him take the fall for it. Liu was sentenced  to a year in a brutal correctional facility  

  • for his trouble, but at least he'd done what he  believed was right, and kept his brother safe.

  • His time inside wasn't kind to him. Liu may have  been innocent, but many of the teens around him  

  • were hardcore criminals in the making. He was  dealt regular beatings by the other inmates,  

  • and the sadistic guards. Night  after night alone in his cell,  

  • separated from anybody who cared about  him, was beginning to take its toll.  

  • Everyone thought he was a monster, and  sometimes, a tiny voice inside him would  

  • whisper, “If they already think you'remonster, why not start playing the part?”

  • In these moments, he'd always fantasize  about committing violence - about getting  

  • back at the people who hurt him, who put  him here - but he'd always suppress the  

  • urge. He had to be good. If he becamemonster, what would Jeff think of him?

  • Little did he know, Jeff was becoming a monster  in his own right. He'd been grappling with his  

  • own urges to kill, and when Keith, Randyand Troy showed up for revenge at a birthday  

  • party Jeff was attending, the floodgates finally  opened. They'd arrived at the party with guns,  

  • fully intent on killing Jeff, but things ended  up very differently for the would-be murderers.

  • Giving in to his darkest urges, Jeff  slaughtered each and every one of  

  • the bullies with increasing ferocity. His mind  snapped, he became an entirely different person,  

  • with only one directive in mind: KillHowever, as almost everyone knows by now,  

  • Jeff didn't come out of the conflict unscathedDue to a mix of fire and chemical burns,  

  • he was left horrifically disfigured  and barely clinging on to life.

  • When Liu heard the news in Juvie, he was  horrified. He regretted every decision he  

  • ever made - if he hadn't taken the fall for Jeffhe wouldn't have been left in harm's way. But  

  • there was one silver lining: Before his deathRandy confessed to attacking Jeff and Liu first  

  • in front of several reliable witnesses. Their  testimony was at least enough to exonerate Liu,  

  • allowing him to return home to  his family and support Jeff.

  • When the wrappings around  Jeff's face were taken off,  

  • and his new disfigurements were revealed for the  first time, Liu was the first to comfort him,  

  • telling him it didn't look too bad. And he  got almost slashed to ribbons for his trouble.

  • When Liu woke up in the hospital, he practically  looked like Frankenstein's monster, covered in  

  • stitches all over his face, arms, and torso where  Jeff had been cutting into him. Something felt  

  • different - not just physically, but mentallyHe felt almost as though there was a different  

  • person trapped in his brain with him, watching  him, trying to take control of his actions.

  • There was a single nurse in the room, attending  to his injuries. He asked her what had happened,  

  • and she replied that he'd been in a coma forfew weeks now. His brother had murdered his entire  

  • family, and since then, he'd been on a nocturnal  killing spree across the country. He'd been behind  

  • a number of murders and disappearances, and  has consistently managed to evade capture.

  • You're very lucky to be alive, young man.  I've seen the police sketches,” the nurse said.  

  • The little freak looks like a demon. I'd  hate to run into him in a dark alley…”

  • Demon? Something about that word, and the  tone she took, really got under his skin.  

  • He may have been a murderous psychopathbut Jeff was still Liu's brother,  

  • and he didn't want anyone badmouthing him  after what he'd been through. Liu suddenly  

  • felt this burning rage inside of him, andlittle voice inside his head spoke up again.

  • Kill her. Kill her now. She deserves to die.”

  • That's when Liu noticed a pair of surgical  scissors on a table next to his bed. With a  

  • sudden surge of almost supernatural strengthhe reached over and grabbed the scissors.  

  • As the nurse approached to restrain him, he  stabbed her through the eye with the scissors,  

  • piercing her brain and killing her instantlyHe had finally given in to his darkest urge.

  • And it felt...good. Fantastic, evenHe hadn't felt so alive in years.

  • He climbed out of bed, feeling like a new  person. The voice inside his head told him  

  • he needed to run now. If they caught himthere would be no more victims. There would  

  • be no more fun. And most importantly of allif he got caught, he'd never see Jeff again.

  • The now-Homicidal Liu climbed out of the window of  his hospital room and slinked off into the dark,  

  • that little voice inside his head encouraging  him all the way. He needed to kill again,  

  • and he needed to find Jeff. Perhaps he'd kill  him. Perhaps they'd kill together. He wasn't sure.

  • But one thing was for certainhe thought with a twisted smile:  

  • When he ran into Jeff again, they'd  have plenty more in common...
