Dogs At Midnight (WT 30)

It was Halloween night, but there'd been no trick or treaters at the home of Ayden Cain. The mark warned the living. He was about to go to bed when the doorbell rang. Dressed only in boxers, he opened the door. Death, master of all living things, stood naked -- pale skin stretched over bones, tall, a black mass of curls over his thin face. Death was always welcome in the house of Cain.

This turned into DOGS AT MIDNIGHT and was published by THE TINY GLOBULE:

Ayden Cain bears the Mark.
What mark, you ask, the mark of Cain.

Genesis - chapter 4 ver 13-15
And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.

And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
