Author's Chapter Notes:
disclaimer: Riddick belongs to David Twohy, etc.
spoilers: none, pre-Pitch Black
Fingers in a flame should hurt.

Riddick, at ten, knows pain. He remembers what it’s like to be strangled. He wakes up some nights and bites back screams until his throat aches. In his nightmares he can feel the umbilical chord against his skin and hears laughter even when he’s almost awake and sleep is fading. Riddick knows how cartilage feels when it breaks beneath his fist and how easily skin splits on the edge of a blade.

He pinches the fire and it fizzles out. Riddick looks at his fingertips, makes a fist, wonders what else he can end.
