“No. No, I can’t. They’ll send me away. Haven’t you ever seen the movies? I’ll get locked up for life. And besides, I’m not finished yet, I have to get rid of all the evidence,” I smirked. I turned away from him and took a deep breath. I pulled the gun from my pocket and loaded it. I sharply turned around, shooting him right between the eyes.
