Final Judgment
By D.M. Kilgore

 

Prologue


           He surveyed the area.  The abandoned park looked eerie even in broad daylight.  The rusted merry-go-round leaned precariously to one side, stagnant water pooled at the bottom of the slide, and two of the five swings were missing seats, their chains clanking in the light breeze.  It was perfect for what he had in mind, for what he had been planning for over a year.


            He would hide behind the large oak tree as he had so many times before.  His heart pumped faster as he imagined the look of surprise and fear that would cross her face when he stepped from behind it.  Then again, seeing him sitting casually on the swings, waiting, could be equally terrifying.   And it would provide him the opportunity to see the fear in her eyes at the precise moment she spotted him. 


            She liked the swings.  He'd watched countless times as her shapely tan legs had pumped back and forth, pushing her higher, long honey hair flying behind her.  Sometimes, thinking she was all alone, she'd sing.  Like an angel.  She never knew he was watching.  The demon in the shadows.


            He smirked in anticipation as he lowered his large frame onto one of the swings, waiting for her to appear.  He wouldn't have to wait long.  Reaching down to his belt, he slid the new Madio hunting knife from its leather sheath.  The 10" blade curved wickedly and ended in a fiercely sharp point.  The encased wood grain handle was red, her favorite color.  He had chosen it with her in mind.


            He knew the knife was meant for display, but was optimistic that the full tang stainless steel would be strong enough to penetrate human flesh, muscle, and possibly even bone.  He slid it back in its sheath and turned his focus to the trail.  Unmet desires coiled in his gut like a snake, angry venom coursed through his veins, and any minute she would emerge from the wooded path and find him waiting to unleash his lust and fury.
