I never thought killing would come to me quite that easily.
It began as a hobby, during the Summer. Started so innocently too. I just lost my temper when I heard Spike barking his head off next door. Nobody was home so I just walked over there and shot the dog through the screen door.
The barking stopped but the taste of blood was tantalising! I decided I would do it again. The very next day, a skunk wandered into the yard. He didn’t get a chance to blink when my gun went off. That stench will hang around for a while though. Took quite a bit of cleaning too!
From there, an animal a week didn’t seem out of place. I fancy myself a vigilante of sorts. All those annoying creatures, out to disturb someone’s peace, well, they’ve got it coming now.
I suppose I should feel some remorse. What do you think?
Dennis looked up, smiling at Marianne.
Marianne stopped in mid-stride, cocked her head to one side and said, ‘Hmm, it’s not bad. But I would rewrite that last line. It takes the edge off the rest of the piece.’
Dennis reviewed the excerpt and nodded. “Yes, I think the killer should be ruthless. Thank you, my dear!”
