A Weird Way To Kill For Justice

2009 words - 9 pages

A young charming handicapped man in college barely over the age of twenty-five, spots an older female. The swiftness of the female attracts him. The young man runs in the females direction, making the situation seem as if he had to rush. He drops his books knowingly, and in the process of bending over to gather all of the scattered books that previously escaped from his grip the female recognized the man’s broken arm. She starts to help the young man without asking. He obtained a smirk stare on his face, an unpleasant and uneasy stare.
