Banquo's Murder from the Murderers Perspective

Extracts from this document...


Arun Bir The Murderer's perspective I don't understand how it got to this! I was living normally just under a week ago and now this. Is that even possible? My name is Lucas Smith and the past week has been the most hectic week of my life! First I should tell you what I do, so you know what happened from my point of view. I am a murderer or more of an assassin. Don't judge me with my job as I am actually a decent bloke. It's just when my life got hard and I had to feed my seven children, where else could I make money. I looked all over for a job but couldn't find one so I had to resort to this. I have been doing this for three weeks and then King Macbeth called to meet me.

We then made one of our our well camouflaged traps. We left a tree that was loose hanging up and when they went past it would collapse either killing them or blocking their path.

Then as soon as Macbeth was out of sight I fled home. I quickly gathered my possessions and my family and within a couple of hours I had fled Scotland. Leaving all my life and most of my valuable items behind on the run within one day! Now its one week later and I have heard that my house in Scotland has been burnt down. I have sold my father's gold chain which he passed down to me to get somewhere to live. It was hard giving that up as he was not a rich man but he managed to build up some money and buy me that just before he died. Now I have sold it and it is all thanks to Macbeth. I here there may be an army coming to revolt against him and if it is I will be joining it in order to get Macbeth off the throne. ...read more.
