The Assassin

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

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!

"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.

Conclusion

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!!!
