Sounds like fun! I thought I would try it out! I decided to write about my evil villain - Everett Schnitker from my novel, "To Love Without Hope". This is just a little snapshot of his beginning as a creepy evil genius. Hope you like it!
The face of the tormented young man, forever captured in black and white, stared up from the first page of the scrapbook. His eyes were fixed on the unseen photographer and they were wide with fear. His hands were chained, hanging from a cement wall, and there was a dark trail of liquid down his face from an open wound. Words were scrawled beneath the photo in an uneven handwriting.

Everett flipped to a clean page, holding the new photograph in his shaking hands. He dabbed the glue on the fresh page, pressing down the picture and being careful not to leave smudgy fingerprints that would ruin it. Black and white photos were best, but he could change. The boy’s eyes were bright blue, staring back at him. He had fought harder than Peter and his face was bruised. Imperfect, but it would heal. Blood was in his brown hair and it was messy. Maybe this one would be more appreciative and a better companion. Everett quickly wrote a name beneath the picture.

He had stalked the boy for two weeks, watching him walk to school, getting dressed through his bedroom window, and talking to his mother on the front porch. Always yelling. This would be better for him. Taking him from his family meant nothing. Easy. Everett smiled to himself, brushing the greasy hair from falling in his eyes.
“This one will be better. I will not be forced to kill him as long as he obeys,” he whispered, caressing the picture.
So many empty pages… Everett closed the scrapbook as he listened to the sound of Ryan’s screams, echoing up the basement stairs. Time to begin again. He wouldn’t give up until he found the perfect companion.
