Day-19 Free Write

‘Or was it because I talked to myself? I contemplated this a lot because majority of the people I came into contact with were never really interested in getting to know me. I promised myself I would stop answering the voices in my head but it was way to tempting. People didn’t really talk about much these days and it was only then when I started people watching that I picked up the habit. I still longed for a friendship, it was the 60s and a lot of bizarre things were happening. People were being murdered by cults, wild sex parties with lots of cocaine and heroine; it was a nightmare to some. During the day I worked at the LA Times and at night I’d hop from bar to bar. I wasn’t much of a sleeper so I always had to keep myself busy with activity because I knew if I didn’t something bad was bound to happen.

Watch where you’re going freak!

I’m sorry sir I didn’t see you there.

Immediately something snapped and I don’t know what happened next, the stick was in my hand and I was whacking the guy. I tried to stop as he screamed out but I couldn’t. All the anger and frustrations I kept bottled up seemed to ease its way out. After awhile I finally got a grip and here I was stick in my hand with blood all over my face I was confused. We were down in the valley and it was near the woods so I decided I’d dump the body there that way no one could find him it was perfect.

Was this the something I was capable of? I just committed murder and I felt more alive than ever.

Thinking to myself I grew frightened when a person kills someone they should be afraid but me? I was the complete opposite I felt as though this was the answer to my prayers. I’d usually scope out the jerks during the day and follow them in the night. In the office we begin to receive articles about the killings they had no suspect or leads which meant I was in the clear. They begin calling him the clocker. Every night I’d come up with different ways to lure my victims in.

This went on for about maybe a month until I decided to take on a new area. That was when I finally met my match.

    Yikes! Sounds like a book with big screen potential. First time I’ve heard of a reporter being the killer. Great spin.
