Fic: Windows to the Soul (Dexter, PG13, Prompt #18: Instinct)

Title: Windows to the Soul
Fandom: Dexter
Prompt: #18, Instinct
Rating: PG13
Warnings: None besides the fandom.
Summary: This is what evil looks like.
Spoilers: Spoilers for S1.
Word Count: About a hundred and ten.

His eyes are evil. I've seen men do terrible things, I've done pretty awful things myself, and his eyes are as familiar to me as the blood on the ground.

It's not his stillness what makes my skin crawl. That's shock; that's human. But his eyes are too alive. He has found a way to live with everything around him, a way to live in it. That means he's very strong, but also that he's not coming back.

I've seen too many ex-cons to believe somebody can adapt to hell and come back sane. So I pick his younger brother and walk away without looking back, feeling his eyes on my neck.
