we open up in a small room that is lit only by a small light bulb hanging from the middle of the room by a few wires, the light flickers as a we look around, we can see a twin metal bed that seems to be rusted and from a mental hospital as metal rings with a few leather straps can be seen. A plastic looking mattress sits on top of the spring filled bed the bed squeaks and the mattress rustles as someone on top of the bed throws a pillow as it lands with a harder then normal thud, we can tell it to is plastic, we focus on the bed as two feet swing over the edge and land on the floor as we can see a dark figure hunched over with his head in his hands.
The figure slowly stretches his arms out to either side as it can be heard yawning, the springs on the bed squeaks some more as he shifts, lowering his hands to assist him as he stands up, a different noise can be heard as he shuffles his feet while he makes his way to the jail house style sink and toilet combo, we can see a heavy duty chain shackled from the bed to his right leg as it slowly moves following his steps.
He pushes a button and some water flows in a water fountain style as he cups his left hand letting it feel with some water, he releases the the button and the water stops about three seconds after the button raises back up, he pours some of the water from his left hand into his right hand as he splashes water unto his face then runs his hands through his hair. He then rubs both his eyes as he looks into the polished metal mirror that seems to be riveted to the wall, he looks at the reflection of his face, inching closer to the mirror we can see it is what used to be Nic McGregor but something about him has changed his eyes are black along with his mouth being sown shut.
Nic know's it's him but something is just different as he looks over his face, all he can wonder is what Deacon did to him, slowly shaking his head as if trying not to believe that the past few weeks of torture didn't exist but somehow knowing what Deacon did was not for his own good, but something darker that Deacon and his master had in plan, but Nic just wonders what that could be
He touches his face as it seems he winces he moves his hand back and then retouches his face more gently this time, his eyes seem darker as if he hasn't slept in days maybe even weeks, his face is covered with dark bruises some even dark enough to have a green tint to them, dried up blood covers the bottom part of his nose and mouth area as he looks closer into the mirror as to try to recognize who he is. He grabs a small wash cloth that lays on the edge of the sink with his left hand as he pushes the water button repeatedly as to get some warm water, he places the washcloth into the sink and holds the water button down to fill up the sink portion, he places both hands into the water and splashes his face a few times to try and get the blood stain off it.
He then looks around the room he looks up into one corner where he can see a small t.v bolted to a stand which is attached to the wall with a camera next to the t.v with a red light flashing as it records his every move, he walks over to the corner with the t.v, the chain around his foot tugs at his leg as it's stretched to it's limit as he reaches and turns the tube on it shows a woman that when Nic looks at it he steps back with a seemingly shocked looked as the name “Celeste” escapes his lips as a slight grin replaces the shocked look as he remembers some of his past with her.
The screen fades to black while he watches the screen a video starts to play showing his son Devon, his eyes widen as he lifts and extends his right hand towards the t.v a single tear falls from his eye as the video show's him and his late son playing football in the front yard, yet another smile crosses his lips as a few more tears begin to swell in his eyes and fall down his cheek. He steps back a few feet and hits the wall behind him, as he slowly turns around we can see pictures of him and what can be assumed as his first wife Melinda who appears to be pregnant, she is wearing gray sweat pants that read “Texas Longhorns” in a deep orange down the left leg, she is also wearing one of his old shirts that simply reads “The Gentleman” and other pictures showing his second wife Celeste and his son from his first marriage Devon.
he smiles as he see's different parts of his old family but knowing something is wrong and wondering why Deacon would kidnap and beat him to the point he would snap yet would have good memories for him to remember
As he takes in all the pictures, he can hear a blood curdling scream he turns around to see where the scream came from, seeing nothing but darkness he hears the scream once more as he looks up to the t.v, where he see's his old house burning down while in the middle window of the second story we can see a older kid around 8 years old screaming and hitting the window, he tries to scream his son's name but all that comes out from his mouth is a loud moan. He hits the floor landing on his knee's as he hides his face in his hands, the t.v fades to black. A loud metal on metal clank can be heard as door swings open letting in a flood of light, Nic looks up and see's nothing but two large figures standing there, he tries to scramble to his feet but before he can to a erect stand one of the figures rushes him and another sound can be heard but this time more steel on bone sounded as Nic falls back to the ground in a limp state and the scene fades to black
we open inside a much larger room then where we first seen Nic, this time is different as there is a wrestling ring set up in the middle of the room all though there is no ropes lining the sides, around the ring there is a single row of chairs on two sides of the make-shift ring and on the sides with no chairs someone has set up two tables on each side, in the middle of the ring lays Nic all though in some sort of black ring gear pants with green stitches in different places, his left foot is chained to one of the ring post, this time with a lot more chain as if to have a wrestling match. We get closer to we can see that he has a half mask on that is colored green and black in different places, as he starts to stir and move around, he turns his head to the other side to try to figure out where he is
he wonders “why the hell did they bring me here”, as he takes in the environment he thinks “damnit to hell not again, what is so important about bringing out the Phreakish One again?” though he tries to deny knowing why Deacon is doing this to me, he knows deep down.
he moves his legs as he can see four pair of leg's, as he lifts up to his knee's the chain can be heard dragging, he looks back at his foot and the chain and shakes his head, when all of a sudden one of the guy grabs Nic from under the arms and dead lifts him to his feet, Nic is standing and looking dead in the eyes of his tormentor Deacon, he moves his head slightly to either side, seeing to the left his friend of many years Brandon Bishop to his left the man he once trained with and has hated with a passion in the man named Omen, Nic then looks to the right and see's Gage Gannon, a man he had a few matches with
Gage looks Nic over and motions to the other three with a slight nod and grin, the other three each step off the platform that was once a wrestling ring, Omen and Brandon each grab a couple of chairs, while Deacon grabs a table, each of them step back onto the platform with Deacon leaning the table onto on of the ring post. Each of them is grinning ear to ear as if they will enjoy what is going to happen next, while Nic shakes his head in fear of knowing what they are going to do.
Deacon points to Brandon and Omen and then to Nic, as Gage and Deacon step back both Omen and Brandon start swinging their chairs which connect with Nic's head and body, Nic is able to with stand a few head shots from Omen, but the fourth head shot combined with a few shots to the spine from Brandon, all he can do is collapse from blunt force of each chair shot. Both men drop their respected chair and starts putting boots to Nic
knowing he can't let them win by turning him into the monster he once was, he tries to think or for one why Brandon would do this to his best friend and what Omens motives were joining in and beat him like a step-child
he lets out a painful groan as he can feel each boot to his chest, back and head, he rolls one way only to get kicked harder, he tries to move the other way but is met with a painful chair shot to his head once more. Nic lays limp we can see Deacon walking over to him, he puts his foot on Nic's ribs and slowly rolls him over to his back, Deacon then bends down grabbing Nic's right arm as Omen grabs the left, both men drag the limp Nic over to the corner with the table, lifting him up the lay Nic propped up against the table, Gage then walks over and pulls something out of his pocket and places it under Nic's nose who abruptly wakes up.
Gage: Nic you may wonder why I had Deacon do what he did and if you believe our reasoning our not it is for the better good, not only for you but for everyone involved. What you do need to realize is that you were only hurting yourself trying to hold back the true freak of nature you are, being your so called normal self wasn't getting you anywhere
Brandon: except maybe a one way ticket to the nut house
Omen: or a grave
Nic shakes his head in disagreement even though he pauses knowing that what they say is true, but then again he knows that the reason he tried to be “Normal” was because he had gotten scared of what his darker side was becoming
Gage: Now even though you have no reason to trust me much less anyone here for what they have done to you, you do need to know that last week was just the start of what I have planned for you and at Numbered Days, when you and Omen take out the so called “Italian Infusion” in a violent fashion that it will set in motion the plan's of the KarnEvil. Now you will have to decide for yourself between pleasure and pain.
Deacon: You see Phreak if you pick and to be honest I'd pick it if I were you and that is the Pleasure route, in which you and the rest of the KarnEvil do what we want and take over by capturing all the belts and you can destroy anyone that steps into your path with the bloody violent passion that you once had.
Omen: or you can pick Pain in which I honestly hope you do and that is where every single day until you embrace your old psychotic ways, we will beat the shit out of you, which I will enjoy, but make no mistake about it Phreak, we do have a tag match coming up, so we won't beat you to the point you can't compete, but we will beat you non the less.
Phreak starts to think over the options knowing on one hand he will be able to be as violent and psychotic as he wants to be if not more, he remembers the things he did as the uncontrollable monster he once was as a big smile crosses his lips, but it fades just as fast as he remembers both of his wives and his son even his friends and people that he has hurt and crippled over the years and shakes his head as if to be disgusted bout his past and knowing why he had to hide his demon that is Phreak deep down inside his soul
all three men stair at Phreak awaiting for his answer, Omen tilts his head as if he knew what Phreak was thinking, he takes a few steps back then runs full speed and spears Phreak through the table and rolls off the platform as Phreak is not moving, just gasping for air
Deacon: did you think we were fucking playing with ya? All I can say and its from the rest of us too. Come Numbered Days, you better be ready, you better be the Phreak that you are and for your sake, You better pray to whatever god you have, that you and Omen win
all three men surround Phreak and start kicking and punching him as the scene fades to black
