“Just”

murder of a shadow

“Have you ever killed a man just to watch him die?”

“Man, what kind of question is that?”

“What do you mean? It’s a pretty straightforward question.”

“No, I mean, why would you ask me a question like that?”

“Why shouldn’t I?”

“Because I’ll have to answer it!”

“That’s what I want, dammit! So…have you ever killed a man just to watch him die?”

“No, not ‘just.’”

“Then why…?”

“Because he asked the wrong question.”

“Oh.”

“Yeah.”

“Jesus Christ.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Nah. It’s really my fault. You tried to warn me.”

“I really did.”

“So…nice knowing you, I guess.”

“I guess.”

  1. Hilarious. It’s very unusual to find a short-short that’s actually benefited by the lack of dialogue tags and description. Good work 🙂

  2. GREAT!!! I like your sense of humor ; )

I know you have something to say, so say it!
