    Summary

    The creature standing outside the classroom window is something between a wild cat and a hound, with matted black fur and a disturbing mass of muscle stretched over its bones. One leg is grotesquely torn, angling outwards in a way that can only mean that it was broken by force. Hux feels a terrible twisting in his gut. The beast bares its teeth like it's ready to lunge, and Hux stands suddenly, eyes wide, and stumbles over an incomprehensible "What—" as the monster locks eyes with him.

    A few students look up at him, waiting for him to say something, but he can't seem to manage even a sentence when faced with all their bemused faces. He looks away from the class and out the window again, at the empty school grounds, the fallen leaves and the half-damp concrete, and something drops in his stomach.

    Summary

    This is the start of an improved version of "Remember the Crown" in which we restart our story. I suppose you can say the the characters inspired by Victor and Logan are, well, out-of-character because his inspired character Nathan isn't a psychopath.

    Anyways, Henry and Nathan make plans to settle down after the Korean War, but plans go awry when Henry experiences a terrible flashback!

    This work will be periodically updated and improved. Enjoy its maiden post! Please read and review!
