"What?" Vlad stared at Danny in disbelief. "Ho-"

"Jazz đã đưa ý kiến that the car sped out of control. That's all I know. I don't know when, I don't know where. Now stop asking me questions." Danny muttered. He began to stand up to go clean his dishes, but Vlad stopped him.

"I will handle this. bạn look like bạn haven't slept for weeks, and knowing how ghost hunting usually keeps bạn up every night, bạn probably haven't slept in a month."

Danny looked up at the older halfa. "I don't w-"

"You WILL rest, Daniel. There is no argument." Vlad's duplicate said, grabbing Danny bởi the arm. He brought the young halfa upstairs to his room. He then sent a certain energy into the boy, making him fall asleep. He tucked Danny into giường and left the room.

After a few hours, Danny woke up. As he got out of bed, he remembered that Vlad was there. He weakly walked to the door and opened it to see Vlad waiting outside. The young halfa sighed. "Why? Why are bạn being nice to me? We- we're enemies. So why?"

Vlad rose an eyebrow. "Why wouldn't I? In the viewpoints, bạn saw me as your enemy, whereas I saw a child with the same curse as mine."

"Oh really? Then why did bạn try killing me? Dani? My friends? Answer that."

"Daniel, if I wanted bạn dead, bạn already would have been. What did bạn expect I could do after twenty years? Only go intangible, invisible, fly, shoot lasers, duplicate, create shields, and teleport? My boy, I have many thêm powers that bạn cannot even imagine. If I wanted to, I could have killed bạn whilst sitting in my chair at my bàn in Wisconsin."

"You don't have the Ghostly Wail."

"Indeed I don't, as that power is unique to you, however the rest remains the same." After a few moments of silence, he asked, "Where have your Những người bạn been during this time?"

"Sam was forced to go with her parents to California and Tucker is grounded. And when he's grounded, bạn can expect his parents to keep an eye on him like hound dogs. Why?"

"Just curious since it's obvious that no one came to check up on you, considering the state bạn were and are in."

Danny glared at him. "What state?! I'm perfectly fine!"

"No bạn aren't, Daniel. bạn are thin and pale."

"Yeah? WELL AT LEAST I AM NOT DAN! AT LEAST I STILL HAVE MY HUMANITY! AT LEAST THAT WASN'T RIPPED OUT OF ME LIKE MY FUCKING HEART!"

"Daniel, language! And what does your humanity have to do with this?! Y-"

"EVERYTHING! HELL, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF I DID DIE! AND DO NOT SAY THAT I DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE I DO! bạn DON'T KNOW WHAT I KNOW! AFTERALL, IT ISNT LIKE bạn HAD TO DEAL ANOTHER TIMELINE! NO, bạn GOT THE EASY thuyền WHILE I DID ALL THE DIRTY WORK THAT NOBODY HAD THE GUTS TO DO! I SAVED PEOPLE AND USED MY POWERS FOR GOOD WHILE bạn SIT ON YOUR đít, mông, ass AND DO THINGS bạn WANT! AND WHO IS DESTINED TO DIE OF THE TWO OF US IN THE ORIGINAL TIMELINE? ME! NOT THAT bạn CARE! YOU-" Danny bursted out in tears. "Saw me die only because bạn wanted to help."

Vlad looked down at Danny, completely flabbergasted. He never even knew that there was another timeline. That Danny was supposed to die. And that it was his fault. At the sight of boy crying and the information he was given, Vlad cradled the young halfa in a hug. "Daniel, I won't let that happen. I promise." He told Danny softly. It was then when the young halfa broke down, sobbing the time away.
