She called me a hero. I wish she hadn't.

That's how it began. Then came the news, the profiles of both of us, the notes about Harry. The publicity, once they found my brother's corpse.

Now there's another killer on the loose. He's not as good as my brother was, and he doesn't have any standards at all. He kills the defenseless, the weak. I'm not an sporting kind of guy, but I put down those who deserve it.

This one needs to be put down. I can feel the hunger growing in me.

And yet I'm here, trapped in this ridiculous nightmare. I wonder if normal people end up here in the same way, without quite knowing why or how it happened. I feel out of control.

And know, the Democratic candidate for Major of Miami City... Dexter Morgan!

They cheer, and they keep cheering as I enter the stage smiling and waving. So many lights upon me. Why are they clapping? Can't they see what I am?

Or do they see, and want me here, want me to kill those they fear most?

Debra is next to me, smiling and meaning it. She loves this.

I don't.

But the thing inside me does.

.finis.

Dexter has had good Robin training since he was a wee traumatized kid. Besides, poor guy. He is in a jam, isn't he?

That's the weird, fascinating thing about the Dexter fandom: our guy doesn't have a bad side, he is bad.
