The assassination

Extracts from this document...


THE ASSASSINATION Alan awoke at 7.00 a.m. just as he would on any other day. Lazily, he clambered out of bed, slowly lolloped over to the window, where he drew back the curtains. He looked down from his second floor flat, at an already very panic stricken Victoria Street, in Battersea. Alan was a very successful car salesman, although one would not have said that he was always very honest or trustworthy. Alan owned his own car show room which was situated about five miles to the south of Battersea, where he lived. He was always boasting about his car showroom.

He had been shot and nobody could hear his screams. Slowly, Sean turned around to see Alan standing twenty paces in the direction that he had just come from. Alan had cunningly ambushed Sean, with ease. Another ten seconds passed and Sean dropped to his knees, staring at Alan in disbelief. Casually, Alan began walking towards Sean and by the time that he reached him, he was dead. The pavement oozed with Sean's still warm blood. Alan removed a handkerchief from his jacket pocket and began wiping the revolver with it.
