Your Turn

Your Turn

He’s been shadowing me for two weeks now. We’ve talked about the job and what it entails. Today it’s his turn. The straps are tightened, the curtains drawn. All he has to do is pull the switch. Nobody’ll know it wasn’t me.

  1. The most intriguing part of this intriguing piece is why he wants people to think he killed the prisoner. I can’t think of a reason, but I’ve been reading you long enough to trust that there is one.

    1. The thoughts going through my mind were that he was just glad to be pass the executioners job on to someone else. Though, as nobody ever saw the executioner, the fact that he was no longer pulling the switch and a newbie was for the first time, would go unnoticed.
      Does that make sense?
