Together in Darkness (by Puchi Ann)

Summary:  Written for the 2018 Missing Man Challenge.  I have always felt that the drama of “To Die in Darkness” would have been intensified if Ben had experienced its situation with a son, rather than with Candy, much as I like him.  This challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity to explore that idea.
