Extracts from this document...


The Sniper After seeing his brother's face on the slowly rotting corpse, he was shocked so much after seeing the face that he stood there for a few minutes deciding what to do he finally decided to get his brothers body off the road and away to his hideout. When he got there, his roommate greeted him, (if you could call it a room, as all it was, was a small cave-like room beneath and old abandoned cinema, with one old squeaky bed, a couple of sheets in the corner and a crate which was being used as a table) "Who's the stiff?" enquired the sniper's 'roomy'. "This 'stiff' is my brother," answered the sniper. "Wow, do you know who did it?" asked the roomy. "I did; I DID OK, I KILLED MY BROTHER!" the sniper burst out.
