This is prequel to Betrayal and Forgiveness.

Author's Chapter Notes:

"You were a psychiatrist once. You know the ugly, savage things we all keep buried, that none of us dare expose. But he'll dare. Who's to stop him? He doesn't need to care."

"He's coming."

"Hang on to being a human for one minute longer."

In mere seconds Gary appears. Jim aims his phaser rifle but it is sent flying away from him. Now, vulnerable Jim must face his best friend.

"I am disappointed in you Elizabeth. But you James, what shall I do with you?"

"Gary, listen to me."

"I do not need to listen to a mere mortal. You have no idea what it is like to be a god. I can do anything, I know everything."

"What do you want from me?"

"Your devotion of course. Oh and something else. Your statement a moment ago made me realize that even you James have secrets that you wouldn't dare expose."

"Leave me out of this. I am here as your friend."

"Oh, that's what we're now. Only friends."

"That is all we can be." Jim stared at the man that once was his friend. He had aged so quickly because of his powers. He was no longer the man he once knew.

"All because of him, am I right?"

"I don't know what you are talking about?"

Laughter echoed all around them, amplified by the huge boulders that kept the sound contained.

"You were right, I don't care and I shall expose your dirty little secret."
