Chapter 2: The Doctor Scorned

The Doctor stitched and sewed.

The corpse, it was now as a dark monstrous epitome, of the one man's insane obsessions.

Of the one doctor's insanity and madness.....

Disbanded twice, from any civil professional medical career in- practice; The Doctor, you see; he had nothing more- productive to do with all of his free time, than that of a strange bit, of black market, twisted research and development; that was to be paid- by the highest bidders from the chopping block, of his regular commitments.
