Daddy knows best...

It wasn't a day like all the other days. Today was special. I woke up. Late again - but only by a mere half an hour this time. Quick now...gotta grab my coat and forget about the nice, hot shower that i was fantasizing about all night, and had postponed it for this morning...which wasnt turning out to be quite like i planned.

I've always been good at making coffee. I might be one of those people who think they can make the best coffee in the world...given the time i make it in...which is precisely 5 minutes...yeah, that's right, you heard me...5 minutes. The milk in it doesnt taste that fresh, since its never heated properly, but i gulp it down anyway, thinking how it would have tasted if it would have been made by...........................by............Eva......damn.

Yeah, that's right. I, me, an earth-bound misfit, once had a woman...oh, her words still ring in my head...words she said when she left me.....

Yeah, I love you too, Steven...but it's daddy....he won't let me come near you...and i always do whatever he tells me to do...you know i can't make an exception when it comes to him...besides...you are working at three jobs already and you still dont make enough to win his heart...i dont know what should be done about us...i think the best thing right now will be for us to not see each other again...i'm sorry Steven...i am sorry...

The car made a silent screech as it pulled over besides Eva's mansion...I'll get that damn thing fixed...after today, Eva, I'll get everything fixed...

Whoa...!!...wait a minute...what the fuck do I think Iam doing...Iam a normal guy having a less than average pay...I never take risks...I can't take risks...I could never...but could i...??...I reached inside my coat and felt the cold body of the revolver in my hands...could i really do it?...could i really kill a man...?

I walk silent steps towards the big hall which is right there when you enter the house...it's raining hard...perfect...no one will hear the silent 'bang' of the gunshot when i finally...oh god...he is standing there...right there...with his back turned towards me...he is a big man...old, but big.
Did he hear me coming...?...does he know i have a bullet for him tonight...he has a wine glass in his hands, held like rich people always hold it...the fool's been drinking.

I let him hear my footsteps...he doesnt seem to be breathing...for a minute, everything goes dark and quiet..i can hear my own heart-beat...focus man, focus...dont let him see your face...just pull the trigger...aim for the head...and then he turns...

Like a hunter lying in wait for his prey, he turns...giving me the feeling that he had been expecting me...a thunder bolt outside lights his face...man, i've never seen such an ugly face...i guess i would be doing him a favour by shooting him...

I reach for my gun and pull it out...not knowing what to do next...he seems to think i don't even know how to use it...and then he laughs...very loudly...booming like the thunder outside....

HOA!HOA!HOA!...You don't have the guts...

I let him know what i am made up of and fire one shot that makes a sickening sound as it makes an impact with his big chest...I think i got him good Eva, I think i hit him somewhere near his heart...or what would've been left of it...

Then Eva comes running in the room...

Daddy! Is everything ok...? I heard a gunshot...are you...oh no, Steven...!!...what have you done...why the devil did you....

Wham! A hammer-like fist hits me in the head and i fall down...i see Eva's father's big body hovering over me..but how did he...?...is he human...??...i shot a bullet in his chest...I'm sure it went through his heart...he even fell down...how the hell did he........

Ever heard of blanks, son?...I think you just fired them...

Oh no...oh no....this can't be happening...but i planned everything out...i loaded the revolver right before i left...oh no...Eva.....damn...

Then Eva's father lays his fists upon me...he talks...but he never opens his mouth....his fists do all the talking...and i dont know when they will go silent...

Whuff!Whuff!Whuff!Whud!Whud!Whud!

From what seem like miles and miles away...i hear Eva saying something to her father...as he continues to hammer me into a pulp...

This one just won't react will he daddy...?

No..i believe that makes him much more easier to deal with, sweety...

Will you be dealing with ''someone'' else after you are done daddy...?

Sure sweety...tonight i am all excited...this boy here...Steven,rite?...has made me so...hey baby, I gotta say...you sure know how to pick him...

Hee...Hee...stop it daddy...just deal with him quickly...

Then she bends over and whispers into my ear like she did when she told me she loved me...

Daddy is an old man, Steven, it takes a lot to get him excited...thanks...

I feel the big guy's hands tightening around my throat...i don't even try to resist...
