[Short Story] - Murderer - 5minute freewrite challenge
Standing in front of the judge and jury, he showed no signs of remorse.
“Do you confess the murder of 16 women?”
“16?” A smile formed on Robert’s face. “You know of 16?”
His question took the court room by surprise. People’s jaws dropped in horror and the room became wrapped in quietude.
The lawyer then pierced the silence with a follow up question everyone wanted to know the answer to.
“Were there more than 16 victims?”
“I don’t know, you tell me,” he replied with a cocky smirk.
The lawyer lost his cool. He had never seen such a callous individual.
“Tell me! How many people have you killed!? Tell me!” he yelled.
Robert slowly looked toward the judge and reminded him such behavior isn’t to be accepted in the court room.
“Calm down and have a sit Cavanaugh. Robert, did you murder more than 16 women?” Asked the judge.
“Yes. But I will not tell how many.”
“You are hereby sentenced to death in prison. Take him away.”
Robert stood up and slowly nodded, then peacefully waited for two police officers to take him away.
Ding. Time is up.
