It shouldn’t matter any more. 

Logan frowned down at the silk threads strung between his fingers. 

The hoopla over splicing other creatures’ DNA into the human genome had been a much bigger deal in his great-great-grandparents’ time. So it should be fine…fine to admit to his roommates that he wasn’t…wasn’t totally human. 

No one ever understands. 

He exhaled, weaving the silk back and forth, creating a pattern of triangles and hexagons between his hands. 

Nearly a fourth of the American population could name an ancestor who had participated in the fad before it was banned. Some…with better results than others. 

Some with less…horrific pasts than his. 

I do this to protect me, sweetheart.  

Logan closed his eyes, clenching his fists, destroying the web in the process. “Who am I kidding?” He whispered. Just because the recent passing of new laws allowed most of the Spliced’s descendants to come out into the open didn’t mean that he would be able to. 

It wasn’t like anyone else had their mother currently listed on America’s Most Wanted as the country’s number one threat.

EPILOGUE -Two Weeks Later

Logan sprawled out on his bed, foot tapping the sheets as he frowned down at the drawing.  “I don’t know, Ro.” 

“Oh come on, Specs!” Roman jabbed the paper he’d practically shoved into Logan’s hand. “Please! It’s for science!”

Virgil snorted from where he sat jotting down notes in the middle of the large web Logan had built for him in order to test the strength of the threads he could produce from his wrists. “For science, huh. Since when do you care about–?” 

“Since–since you said you needed to establish if Logaroo’s webs here can hold a human’s weight or not!”

“We’ve already established that it can.” Logan said, gesturing to Virgil. “This just—it’s fantasy, Roman. Hanging from a single thread upside down? When would I ever need to do that?” It would hardly be stable. He could already imagine spinning uncontrollably or swinging wildly back and forth in the wind. No, two or maybe three anchor points would be necessary to help control such a descent–

“Because it would look freaking cool that’s why!” Roman said sitting up straight, eyes shining. “Just imagine it okay? Hanging upside down in the rain–” 

“Getting water up my nose.” Logan deadpanned staring at the two figures Roman had drawn on the page.

“Getting–HEY!” Roman shoved his shoulder. “No! And you’ve just saved–” 

“The love of my life.” Logan finished. Blah blah blah. He’d heard similar speeches before from Ro. There was a good reason why Virgil often called him Princey after all. He shook his head. “I get what you’re getting at. I just don’t see why anyone would want to kiss like this.”

To Catch Up: Ch 1  Ch 2

Patton hates me.

Logan pulled the hood of his jacket further over his head to protect himself from the pounding rain as he slowly made his way from the Campus Library to…to his…well the apartment. 

It wasn’t like he could call the place home anymore. Not after…the incident.

You’re never safe. Don’t grow close to anyone, my darling. They’ll only stab you in the back.  

He grimaced, running his tongue over his fangs as he massaged his aching chest. 

Patton hates spiders. He’s scared of them. He’ll be scared of me. I can’t—I can’t hurt him.

It would be for the best. Moving out. He already had the excuses all lined up. Plausible ones even, so that the others wouldn’t ever suspect he’d suddenly left to get away from them. To get away from the nightmarish scene that haunted his dreams and kept him from getting any sort of rest these past two–no wait it was three now. Three nights. Those nightmares of Roman and Virgil attempting to kill him. Of Patton looking at him with haunted eyes, whispering ‘It’s for the best’ while the others cornered him, preventing him from escaping, from moving as the giant boot came dow—

Logan pressed the back of his hand to his mouth, silencing the whimper that threatened to break free from his trembling lips. 

Hush. Don’t cry, my spiderling. It’s kill or be killed. No need to fret over human blood. 

He’d been a fool. Logan wouldn’t be making the same mistake again. No. There was a complex across town that would call him as soon as one of their single bedroom apartments opened up. It would stretch his already thin resources, but having peace of mind was well worth it. Not having to live in fear of his roommates would be…good. Lonely. He would…would miss talking to them, hanging with them. But it was for the best. For them. For him. For his safety…for Patton–

Patton hates me.
