Rate this:
Following the suicide of his lover, the last of the 'old-ones' ancient immortal beings, as clever as they are ruthless and unable to withstand the light of the sun has decided to end his immortality. As he sits on a bench on the edge of a council estate to await his demise with the rising of the sun, he is mistaken for an old man, held up at knifepoint by a young man and stabbed before the sun burns his body to ashes. His assailant scurries back into the belly of the estate with the knife in his pocket, the blood of the old-one seared into its sharpened edge. But once the blade cuts another person, the congealed blood mingles with that of its victim, and awakens in them the old-one's consciousness from the depths of the afterlife.
