I pointed to my badge and we both knew I would. The innocent man had no way of escaping my grasp. He had stumbled upon something he wasn’t supposed to see, and now he was in my crosshairs.
I had no choice but to take him out. I had been hired to do a job and I was going to do it, no matter the consequences. I had been sent to this small town to take care of a problem, and this man was the problem. I was to make sure he was never heard from again.
I slowly raised my gun and pointed it at the man. He shook with fear, his eyes wide with terror. He knew there was no escape. I was about to pull the trigger when I heard a noise.
It was the sound of police sirens. I knew I had to get out of there fast. I quickly grabbed the man and dragged him into an alley. I had to find a way to make sure he wouldn’t tell anyone what he had seen.
But it was too late. The police had already arrived. I had no choice but to run and hope they didn’t catch me. I ran and ran until I was sure I had lost them. I had gotten away with it, but I knew I’d never forget the fear in the man’s eyes as I pointed my gun at him.
