Disclaimer: No profit is made. Matt and Dom are not mine, but the story is.
Author's note: First thing first, I apologise for not being able to post the whole story today. I just panicked, because I couldn't get a feel of the story, and had to rewrite it. But I think I hit the tone now, and I know where it's headed. The parts in italics are flashbacks. Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and peaceful last days of the year.


The clock struck midnight, and Matthew felt a shiver run down his spine, his skin breaking into goosebumps.
