The Assassin

Extracts from this document...


The Assassin Aaron Anthon Friday, 27 April 2007 I didn't want to do it! It wasn't my fault! I had to do it! They made me! I owed them, I owed them big time! When you owed the kind of money to the kind of people I did you never became complacent! I am not talking a hundred pound or even a grand- I was in serious trouble- and I couldn't see a way out! I was addicted- I had been for years! It started out small (like these things usually do!) and slowly snowballed out of control. I spent every waking moment anticipating my next fix and every moment of my unconscious dreaming about it! When you lived on my estate you were under the ever-tightening grip of an addiction or... well everybody was on it! There was no hope; nobody had any dreams or a chance of a better life so never reached for higher aspirations! Any time I ever tried to better myself or my circumstances I fell flat on my face, so after a while I stopped trying! ...read more.

He pulled the trigger back slowly- have you ever heard that saying, "I saw my life flash before my eyes" well it's true. I saw me breaking my leg at 5, my first day at high school and going out on my... "Wait!" Mark screamed, "There must be something else we can do...surely!" At that moment Mark had saved my life! "Maybe there is!!! Ha, ha, ha!!!" Reggie replied, that evil grin had re-emerged on his face! I knew that I was going to have to do something I was going to regret! "He could do us a little "favour" maybe get rid of somebody for us.... What do you say? Ha, ha, ha!!!" Reggie snarled! I reluctantly agreed- I mean wouldn't you when you have a gun pointing at your head? I didn't know then that when they said, "get rid of somebody " they meant get rid of somebody!!! ...read more.


And I know what it's like to live without a father- Nobody to sit with you through the night when you have had a bad dream, I couldn't do that to these innocent girls! But what could I do? I had to do it! If he weren't dead then I would be! It's either him or me! But what did I have to loose? I am an ex- junkie no home, no family and no friends! But he (whoever he is!) has a nice house, a good job and more importantly a loving family! My life is already ruined...I couldn't ruin anybody else's! I have nothing to keep me here in this city that has only brought me pain and despair! I could leave, get right out. Go where nobody knows who I am or about my sordid past! As I started the engine all I could think about was where I was going to go and what I was going to do! I didn't think about how I had almost taken an innocent mans life and ruined a family- just because he was doing his job! For the first time in years I had hope! THE END!!!
