Paint a picture not so easy on the eyes
Let's give it one more try
Call on another
To make it through the night
Tell me everything will be alright
Only the lonely alone tonight
Telling the secrets they held inside
Face it your moment has long since died
But ill go on forever
Take what you wanted from me
Now you're going to leave again
It's over forever more
Is this what you wanted to see?
Rip the heart out of me again
It's lying on the floor
Direction, telling me no lies I can't decide
What it takes to die
And it seems that things have changed
Now my world is not so dark and gray
Your memory's only as good as your character was back then
So if you're going then please just take my hand
Was it hard to tell me why
Why you couldn't even look me in my eyes
Don't walk away, don't be afraid
I will show you all those things you've never seen
You've only dreamed of
I will give you what you need
What you need is what you need and that's
Release from all these demons that I see
And all your sickness killing me
Just for fun you play your games
But I don't have to tell the story or the names
It's not the time nor the place
Burning bridges burn these memories in vain
Take away this pain relieve me from these chains
That have bound me to you oh I beg you please
As my heart begins to bleed
Someone help me, someone help me I need
What have we awoken today?
This evil monster is rearing back its ugly face
It's always something, something that's been said
So I ride all night to get you out of my head (to get you out)
But you won't leave (no you won't leave) no you won't leave me at all
You are my disease
If saying words are tearing walls down
Then let em fall piece by piece
If shaking stirs are causing meltdowns
Then in the end I feel released
I want to let you know all eyes are upon you
Looking into everything you do
So watch your p's and q's
Evalyn Jacobs was a perfect girl, with the perfect family. Her mother
Emily and Step Father Andrew had provided a loving supportive lifestyle
her. Since the biological father was never around, Andrew supported the
family and came to adopt Evalyn as his own. As time passed in Eva's teen
years, her mother grew very sick. Her mom was a bit of a wild one growing
up and got into some things in the 70's but decided that her daughter
be the changing factor for starting a new better life.
6 days before Evalyn's 17th birthday, her mother passed away from AIDS that she had contracted through heavy drug use. Evalyn was unaware of this behavior in her mother's early years. She learned through all this that there were many things she was unaware of in her parents life. Her step father continued to watch over Evalyn after her mother passed. For that next year, Evalyn would encounter many horrible nights where Andrew would come home drunk, trying to drown the sorrows of losing Emily, and would take it out on Evalyn. He ridiculed her, beat her, told her she was nothing, bad mouthed her mom, etc. It was an awful feeling for her. She noticed throughout this abuse, that in order for her to zone out of the awful surroundings, she would black out and not remember certain points in her days and nights of torment.
These blackouts became more prevalent as time went by and on the anniversary of her mother's death she awoke to a knock on the door. It was the police saying someone had killed her step father. Evalyn was absolutely shocked. Even though he had done some horrible things, she would never wish him to be dead. Who would do this? No one knew of the horrors in which he caused Evalyn, and outside of that he seemed totally normal. She couldn't believe it. That whole week was spent getting things together for his funeral and preparing for whatever was next. Since she was 18, she decided to stay at this house and continue to live there and most of the money that had been put back could be used for her survival for a while. When Evalyn got on the internet to check her email, she decided to do some research on her ancestry. When she began to uncover some distant relatives, she dug deeper. As deep as she could go she searched and searched. And then she uncovered something that made her drop her glass of water right on the floor... There was a picture of her mother's sister. An identical twin living a couple hundred miles away. Eva couldn't believe it.
She had no clue of any living relatives that her mother had. It looked just like her. So she decided to take the drive to see this woman. When Evalyn showed up at the house, she had no idea what would transpire. She continuously ran the events over and over in her head, laying out possibilities of what would happen. After a few long hours of driving, she pulls up to a quaint little house in a middle class suburb on the outskirts of town. When she walked up to the door she hesitates, if only for a second, then rings the doorbell. Slowly, Bobbi, Eva's aunt, approaches the door. She looks so much like Eva's mom, that Evalyn can't help but shed a tear. Without saying a word, Bobbi motions for Evalyn to come in.
Bobbi explains Evalyn's mom's past. The drugs, the family disowning her, no one seeing Emily for 20 years. She also tells Evalyn of a time wheb her mother was younger that she claimed to be controlled by the powers of god. Bobbi didn't exactly know what that meant but it had always stayed with her. When Evalyn explains that her mom had passed, both women share a hug and a sad moment together. Bobbi tells Evalyn that she should look into seeing a psychiatrist because if she has any of her mom in her, the torment and hate and sadness must be let out or the effects could be devastating. Evalyn agrees that things have been hard and it would be a good idea to do so. Evalyn says that its getting late and she better go. Bobbi vows to keep in touch and do whatever she needs to do to help her new found niece. They hug and Evalyn gets in her car and heads home. When she awoke the next day, Evalyn couldn't recall when she got home, laying down, going to bed, etc. She thought that she was just so tired that the memory of last night escaped her. Little did she know...
Evalyn is not one to be very comfortable in white walled hospital-looking rooms. She knows that she needs to be here though. Soon the clerk motions for her to go back to see Dr. Valen, a mind Dr. for 13 years and a sweet frail woman with slight graying hair and glasses and a smile that could warm a warehouse. Dr. Valen begins her first treatment with Evalyn and things slowly get comfortable for her. The dr. Finds Evalyn endearing and takes very well to her.
At the same time across town, Detective Brock Myers is looking into a case of a 25 yr old man being stabbed to death in front of his non-for-profit business "Kicks for Kids" who provide free shoes and clothes for less fortunate children across the U.S. This program is government funded so a couple FBI agents come by the scene to check it out and confirm that it is Jason Stevens, a good friend of governor Lechley's, and the head of the organization. Everyone has seen the sad commercials praying on peoples emotions asking for any kind of donations, showing these children, broke, hungry, etc. Detective Myers is puzzled as to why anyone would ever want to hurt such a giving caring man. Just then another officer says, "Boss, you gotta read this" and as Brock walks into this man's business he looks up to his left to see the message written in blood along the wall. "Poor Jason, he loved kids so much that he died for them" and below the bloody wall were 3 dvds. when the Detective popped in the dvds he was startled at what he saw. The same children that had been in Eddie's commercials were taking their clothes off on camera as Jason played director, his voice being heard in the background. Disgust fills everyone on the scene and detective myers can only stare at the floor in disbelief at what he just saw...
Evalyn has been trying to stay focused and finish school. She knows that her mother would have wanted her to focus on life and continue on and be successful. She gets up late for school. She's been tossing and turning every night, with every dream becoming more wild and vivid than the next. "Sometimes it feels so real, the horrible things I dream of..." She tells her friend Jessie, a student in high school with her. "You just need to find a guy to take your mind away from all this pain! Get a lil booty in yo life!" they both share a laugh. After school they jump in the car and head home, ready to eat and study for this end of the year final that's coming up. Evalyn and Jesse show up at home and Jesse has successfully kept Evalyn focused on positive life today. they make their plates of food and sit down to watch some TV. The News is the first thing that's on. "God, I hate the news" Jesse says with a mouthful of food, "Nothing but sadness on here..." Evalyn replies, "Yeah i feel you. What happened to rescuing a cat from a tree? Haha!" Just then, the story of Jeremy Stevens the "Kicks for Kids" owner comes across the screen. Evalyn immediately became sick to her stomach. She had a nightmare about that murder. She knew in her dream there was blood on the walls and her gut feeling told her that this man wasn't as good as everyone thought. As the story unfolds, she realizes she knew all the details of the murder before the TV had given her the info. She explains to her friend how somehow she had a nightmare about the murder and knew about it ahead of time. Jesse laughs and tells Eva to calm down and tells her she watches too many scary movies. Evalyn was shaken about what had just happened. Evalyn usually saw her shrink once a week but decided to go in early this week to talk to the Dr. about these dreams and blackouts and how she could prevent them. The Dr. offered her some medicine to help sleeping and help keep her calm, but Evalyn refused, saying that those things would take her creative side away and not give her the opportunity to be creative in her writing and artwork. The Dr. Valen then suggested hypnosis. This could help regulate something in Eva's brain that might not be functioning quite right these days. When Evalyn went under, she began to act as a different woman. The Dr. noticed a sharp turn in behavior and began asking questions to find out more. Something deep inside of Evalyn was angry. Angry at the world. Angry at the evil that is all around us. This person inside of Evalyn claimed to be an angel, sent by God to destroy all that is wicked on this earth. Evalyn began to shake violently and Dr. Valen quickly brought her out of the slumber with a very concerned look on her face. Evalyn was absolutely oblivious to what just happened. As Evalyn sits at home, she feels as if the walls are closing in on her. Long ago she stopped watching her scary movies, for life had become far scarier than any fictional character hollywood could produce. She was getting ready when she decided to go out. She never went out, but she did have a fake that Jesse and her had bought at the lake last summer. She knew she needed human interaction asap so she decided to go out.
There's a club about 4 blocks down where no one, not teachers or anyone she knew, went. As she walked in she turned a few heads. Evalyn is definately something to look at, when she wants to be. She sat down at the bar and asks for a glass of wine. She sips the wine and thinks of past holidays, the enjoyment of family time, etc. Just then a man walks up and begins to speak to her and he is a handsome charming man that makes her smile in 5 seconds. He claims to be Kyle Jenkins, a poitical science major who works campaigns for the Republican campaigns. "I think this was a good idea" she says to herself as he gets up to use the restroom. The scene fades out. Evalyn woke up the next day, not remembering what had happened. She wondered whether she had drank alot but when she finally sat up in bed, she didn't feel groggy or hungover. She still didn't feel right about not being able to remember the end of last night at all. Did I say goodbye to that guy? Did we hang out afterwards? What happened? When she walks into the bathroom, she notices cuts on her hands and blood under her fingernails... This full on scares her. Her dream last night had her slamming a hammer down repeatedly. It all seemed so real. Evalyn knew somehow, this was no dream. The man had drugged Evalyn, but apparently she had escaped. Kyle, who claimed to be a facilitator for women looking to get into prostitution, was apparently trying to add Eva to his roster. She had remembered this dream and in her head the handsome mans face and the victim were becoming one... Could this be? Could she have intentionally hurt this man for his evil ways?
Detective Myers is the first on the scene where 27 year old Kyle Jenkins is found dead of repeated blows to the head. With no murder weapon the police begin piecing together a story and a timeline so that maybe they can find their weapon. The cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head. But with no fingerprints and no weapons, the police have a very unstable foundation to start from. Underneath the seat of his vehicle, police find pictures of multiple women, all who are known prostitutes. The detective begins asking questions about the man that was found. The bartender states that a girl came in and had a glass of wine and a conversation with David last night. When detectives ask for her name, the bartender tells them that he can't remember her name. The police question everyone they can about it and that evening the bartender calls the detective and said "Amy. Amy Mills. That's who was in here!" Later on when the Detective question a few of the women in the pictures, he found out that David owned these women and they were forced to work for him or be killed. The Detective then realized that maybe these two murders are linked somehow. Two scumbags killed violently. Two people of government power have been wiped up off the floor. "We have a vigilante on our hands boys!" The Detective tells his officers It was early the next morning when Detective Myers showed up at the young Amy Mills house. "I was here last night, ask my boyfriend." The boyfriend corroborates the story and Amy is no longer a suspect. They explain to her how the woman who was at the club used Amy's I.D. to get in.
Amy explained that a long time ago, her identity was stolen and used for numerous fake I.D's and other things. She's spent her whole life trying to fix that awful mess. The Police were running out of answers... Later on the detective went home and was trying to solve this mystery. "It's hard to put so much care into finding a murderer when the victim was such an awful person himself..." he explains to his wife, "Its hard to give a damn." Dr. Valen has been using hypnosis on Evalyn for quite a while now and had no episodes like we saw a while back. She talks about school, boys, clothes, music, etc just like a normal girl her age. Except today would be different. The Dr. asks a very simple question about trusting the government and the other side of Evalyn Awakes. She speaks of an evil man in power that kills at will and does what he wants. She spoke of his ties to "poisons" and "potions of death" telling the dr. "This Earth will be purified of this evil and this nature will not be tolerated in the world that God will run once again." With the reference of government triggering this violent lashing, The Dr. began to wonder if something bad was going to happen...
As Evalyn is cleaning her room she notices a notebook thrown under her dresser. As she picks it up she notices that the scribbles on the front look like that of a 4 yr old. When she opens it, she finds a language that she knows nothing of. She's never seen it or heard of it. She can tell that the pages are fresh. She had to have done this. But when? She immediately calls Dr. Valen and explains the emergency. The Dr. tells her to come see her right away. When she gets down there she walks straight in and the clerk tries to stop her but Evalyn knew she HAD to give the notebook to the Dr. immediately. "Oh my said the doctor, this language... I've never seen it...
You did this?" the doctor asks. "I don't know, but I feel in my heart and mind that I did do this. This all scares me so much..." The Dr. prescribes her some meds to help with her mind. Evalyn goes home and decides that maybe a lack of sleep has her doing things that she doesn't remember. So in heading home, the radio in the car reports a man dead that was last seen at the bar with some friends. When they said the name of the bar, she knew that she had been the one that killed him. His name escaped her lips right before the radio reports who it was. She knew then what was going on during the blackouts... "What have I done?"
Dr. Valen lives in a small apartment with her husband only a couple blocks from her office. After their kids were grown, the Dr. knew that her and Vinnie (her husband) were getting too old for all the house and yard work that big old house gave em, so they relocated. She was trying to get work done and Vinnie was watching tv in the other room when she overheard talk of two murders that might be related. When the reporters mention the days, that strikes the doc as odd. Evalyn had reported blackouts on those same days and had the blackouts around the same time as the murders. Coincidence? The Doctor couldn't imagine Evalyn doing such awful things. Still she couldn't help but feel that Evalyn had more locked inside than she could uncover alone. As Doc sat down at the computer she went to google and typed in a few words out of this notebook to find out the language. It turned out to be Aramaic. This language was spoken by Jesus and the 12 disciples many many years ago. Evalyn had no training in ANY language, let alone a multi-thousand year old dead language. The Dr. knew that something inside of her had written that, not Evalyn. The Dr. began attempting to translate these writings, hoping to uncover its message. after hours and hours of it, she had done it. The message read:
CAPTIVE TONGUES, SPEAK FEW WORDS. I AM THE LIGHT AND DARKNESS. THE GOOD AND THE BAD. THE INNER HAS BECOME THE OUTER TO SEEK OUT EVIL. A MAN STANDS AT POWER. THIS MAN HAS KILLED MANY CHILDREN OF GOD AND VENGEANCE MUST BE BROUGHT UPON HIS HEAD. HE SITS AT POWER AND AT THE SUNS FULL POTENTIAL HE WILL SET IN MOTION THE DEVASTATION AND CHAOS THAT WILL ULTIMATELY END IN YOUR WORLDS DEMISE. THE WILL OF GOD IS AT HAND. THE HATE THAT COMES FROM WITHIN WILL RELEASE THE FIRES OF HELL TO CONSUME HIM. THE HATE IS NOT FORGIVEN.
The Dr. then knew what Evalyn's darkside would be capable of. The Governor was to speak at a televised conference today at noon at city hall.
The Doc knew she had to do something fast. Early in the A.M. Dr. Valen calls the police and speaks of a strange situation where she thinks the Governor might be in danger. The police don't take to much concern to the matter and tell her they'll transfer her to someone that can help.
"Hello, this is Detective Myers who's this? "This is Dr. Valen. I believe I have a patient that you should talk to." "Oh yeah? Who's that?" "Her name is Evalyn. And she might know a thing about your murder cases" "I'm listening..." "Meet me at the Cafe on Green st. We'll talk" "K. There in an hour." "We don't have an hour sir. I'll see you there in fifteen minutes."
When the detective hears the story of young Evalyn and the blackouts and the notebook, he can't believe it at first, but he realizes that it fits all the pieces together. He felt like this might be the culprit committing these crimes. Dr. Valen then explains the writings in the notebook and a premonition to kill again.
"The Governor is to speak in 30 minutes and he is in danger! We must do something," pleas the doctor.
"How do we know that this is what she's speaking on?" says Myers
"If we're wrong nothing happens, but if something happens, everything will go wrong," She says to him.
"Then we must find her."
So they jump in his cruiser and head to Evalyn's house. They show up to find the front door wide open. The two of them bolt from the car into the house. The house has been turned upside down and Aramaic writing is everywhere on the walls, couch, floor, etc. They knew she was going to fulfill her prophecy and they only had precious minutes left. So they take off and head for City Hall.
On the way, Emily stops by her house to prepare for the final battle. Detective Brock Myers knows that she has to return home so he decides to head her off so him and Dr. Valen head there. The police surround her house and the Dr. Is the first to enter. She tries to explain to Evalyn that they need to take her into custody cuz she's sick. Evalyn says that she's not going anywhere. The detective motions for the Dr to leave and he knows this woman is not leaving without a fight. As he draws his weapon she pulls her holy battle axe from the coffee table and pins the detective to the door with it...
(Patsy Cline's crazy starts to play along with a slow motion scene of a blood bath ensuing as well as other angels flying to earth to help clean the evil out in the world)
And that's where the story pauses with Evalyn being taken away by the angels to safety.
