Steven would walk around in the lonely woods behind his house, looking for small animals. That include squirrels, rats, rabbits and even skunks. He would catch them and then burn them alive. He would sometimes decapitate them and wait to see how long it will take for them to stop moving. Any type of torture that you can imagine, he performed it on them. It was entertaining to him, their cries made him laugh and their suffering energised him.
After watching them die, he would take a souvenir. Whether it were an arm, a tail or even an eye. He had no conscience. No sympathy. He had very long and sharp nails, he would use these long nails in order to dig a hole and bury the poor animals, as using a tool would leave behind 'evidence'. You see, Steven was a 'crime Junkie', after killing his first animal he wanted to make sure that no one will find out. He remembered his mother watching a crime documentary and so when his parents were not home, his curious self would watch and learn.
Steven was not the only curious member of his family, Tiana, Steven's sister(12), would always wonder why he was invested in these shows. So she started closely watching him. She would always wonder why her brother would always go out into the woods for hours and come back reeking of death, why his nails will be dirtier than a teenage boy's mind, why he would always look at animals with a hankering eye.
She wanted to get to the bottom of it.
