Seeing something through a different perspective can affect how someone views something even if they use to love it. For example, Arthur knew Cory for years, but he saw him through a different perspective, and started to change his view about Cory.
"I looked at Richard and they looked at Richard. I saw a face I had known for five years and come to love. They saw a distorted, living monolith."
"'Run! Run, Richard!'"
"There was a huge, blue-white strike of lightening that seemed like it could end the world. It struck Richard, it enveloped him. The last thing I remember is the electric stench of ozone and burnt flesh."
The author creates suspense at the end of the story by revealing information about Arthur that explains what happened to him after this event.
First Arthur burns off his hands to get rid of the eyes.
The eyes disappeared for awhile, but then they started to appear on his chest. Arthur decides the only way to end the thing inside of him is to kill himself. The author reveals this to the reader, and ends the story abruptly to keep the reader on their toes.
"I don't expect to have any trouble putting the shot gun in my mouth or pulling the trigger...It started again three weeks ago."
