Author's Notes:
This is my second drabble for Week 3 of Challenge 288 – Reverse fandom – Last of the Summer Wine at tw100. It's also my only canon-based drabble this week. Well, unless I write another. There's still time!

Summary: Jack reflects on Abaddon’s release as he goes to confront the beast. Spoilers for End of Days.

Abaddon the devourer, freed from his prison to walk the earth, bringing death wherever his shadow touched.

And it was their fault. His team, the people he’d picked, the ones he’d trusted the most. Somehow he couldn’t find it in himself to blame them.

They’d been used, manipulated, tricked into believing that only by opening the Rift could they save the world from certain destruction and get their loved ones back.

Manger had played them all, one monster bound and determined to release another.

Jack could only pray that his overabundance of life would be enough to defeat the beast.

The End
