However, everyone finds Sallie terrifying when she arrives in Purgatory with an infamous mask that injects fear in everyone, including the Leader and The Nine...

- Part 2 of Inside the (SIC)ness
AN ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE FROM 'INSIDE THE (SIC)NESS' SERIES.
Corey Taylor had felt like he had never existed in Des Moines, Iowa. He had always been the reject in every romance, the joke of every party, and left out to wallow in his own sorrow. Never really having any emotional attachments towards another person, he simply drifted day-by-day working at the sex store...
...then when Sallie Knight entered his workplace one day, he develops feelings for her so vividly, it's almost terrifying...
More than Twenty people were pronounced missing within the month. And one of them was Sallie Knight's best friend, Simon Starwarski.
Convinced it's connected somehow, she investigates, searching for her missing friend. Little does she know that Des Moines has a horrible secret, and that she is potentially walking into a cult known as THE KNOT, a makeshift family of misfits donned in masks. And that they are taken care of by their loving Uncles and Father, Corey Taylor.
But the family are in sorrow. They're missing a MOTHER.
It's a pity, really...
