A\N: Betaread by fififolle. This one just naturally turned out a drabble even without any challenges!
In the end there is nowhere to run, the door locks behind him, he has his last stand firm-footed on concrete. Teeth and claws crawling around, in a spiral ever closer. With devious eyes observing him, picking him to bits pre-emptively. They'll pounce on him and it will descend into pain, before darkness. He knows the darkness, the bliss after the agony, will not come soon enough but this is how it has to be. He was blinded by paranoia and a foolish love that led them all here - and he can't let anyone else pay for his mistakes.
