3 months after the Corpse Bride incident, Victor Van Dort thinks he knows everything about a life after death. Although his own death soon reveals to him he still has much to learn about the afterlife. Much much more.
Victor waited at home while his parents were out. Again he was to be wed to Victoria, although he didn't mind it at all. He looked forward to the next day. He smiled as he thought of it. Although he didn't know. He'd never marry her. As a matter of fact. He'd never even see her again.
As he continued to sit there, he suddenly smelt something. Looking around, he couldn't find anything. he walked voer to the window and opening it, he looked down. Only to his horror as his house was on fire! Running out of the door and downstairs, he was trying to get out.
He was avoiding catching fire until he escaped. He pulled on the door. But to no avail. It wasn't locked...It actually felt as though someone were holding it closed. But who? Barkis was no more since he died...Actually. He was beaten so badly he doesnt' even exist in the Land of the Dead at all...
Victor continued to struggle opening the door. Although to no avail as he soon caught fire. He screamed as he tried to put it out. Although it was impossible as he also found it getting harder and harder to breathe. He collapsed ont othe floor, screaming in pain. He had many thoughts going through his head at that moment...And yet his last thoughts weren't of Victoria. Or even his parents. But of Emily, thecorpse bride he hadonce married. Although by mistake. Although he suddenly let out one more scream of pain as his vision darkened. His skin burning off completely.
And soon Victor Van Dort was gone. He was gone from this world completely. He had died in a fire. On October 31st.
