Well, you know.
Anyway, the pictures. I have no idea how Redlight got them, but like I said comments for the last post, they're all of Daniel. Or at least, he's in all of them. Here's the basics:
Pictures 1-4: Just pictures of Daniel. Nothing particularly special, aside from the fact that his face isn't scarred in them. It's kind of weird, like seeing pictures of your parents when they were your age.
Picture 5: Daniel in a police uniform. Again, no scars. If this were any other situation, I would tell Daniel that he looks damn good in uniform, but this is not the time for jests (even if it is a) true and b) all in good fun).
Picture 6-7: Pictures of D and a bunch of people. Don't know who any of them are. My guess is he doesn't know either. Probably casual acquaintances or co-workers.
Pictures 8-9: Pictures of Daniel and his parents. These are actually kind of sad, because...well, he looks so happy in them. And he doesn't even know where they are. They don't know where he is. For all we know, they think he's dead.
...Depressing thought of the day. :(
Picture 10: This one took me a few seconds, but I realized it was of Daniel as a little kid. There's another boy sitting next to him. I'm assuming this is his brother. I guess his fragmented memories of his past were a little off; he did have a sibling, said sibling was just...well...
The back of the picture says "Three days before Lucas Smith went missing". The boys in this picture look like they're five.
...Second depressing thought of the day.
Pictures 11-15: Daniel and the mysterious person known only as Alice. Who is so obviously his girlfriend. Hell, they are kissing in one picture. I was sorely tempted to tease him about that. Then I looked over and saw he still looked like a kicked puppy. So I kept my mouth shut.
There was only one other thing in the packet that wasn't a picture. It was a library card with his face and name on it. Form of ID I guess.
Oh, and I saw Andrew's comment. The sweater itself can't be Daniel's, it's too small. More like average-person sized, not six-three sized. But maybe whoever hurt him was wearing it, so it could still be meant as a trigger. Daniel hasn't really reacted to it, though. He's just sort of stared blankly at it. Guess the other revelations about his past were all he could handle.
Hang on a second...
there was something else in the pocket.
when i looked again there was...
do you know what a claddagh ring is?
look it up if you don't.
her family is irish. i figured she'd...
i can't go back.
i can't go back for the same reason alora can't tell her brother what's going on. the minute i go back, all of them--my mom, my dad, alice--they're all dead. all of them.
i remember my family...and alice, dearest alice...but i can never see them again.
if that's what you wanted, redlight, then it worked. you win.
but there's one mistake you made. i remembered i was a police officer. so i know how to use a gun.
if i ever see you, i'll kill you.
...I should go talk to him.
