He awoke with a splitting headache. What had happened? He was having a hard time remembering much. After shaking his head a bit, things started to come back. He remembered the dog running out in front of his car. Then there was the sliding around all over the road.
Have I had an accident? He thought.
He tried to wipe the sweat from his forehead. Then he realized he couldn’t move his hands or his arms. They were tied behind his back.
What the hell is going on here?
He tried to shake his body, but when he did he realized his body was all tied up. He began swinging back and forth. It felt odd. Suddenly he realized he was tied and bound and hanging upside down from a ceiling.
It was dark with just a single light in the corner. There was a dank odor and he assumed he was in a cellar or some sort of warehouse.
Where am I? How did I get here?
Then he began to hear footsteps in the distance. They were getting closer with every second. He started to wiggle and move as best he could in an attempt to get out of his current situation. But it was no good, he was trapped.
Before he knew it a man dressed all in black with a black bag over his head was standing right in front of him. He noticed the large knife the man held in his hand.
“What do you want?” he asked. The man in black remained silent.
“Please, what have I done?” he asked. Still silence from his captor.
“Please!” he shouted.
Without warning he was stabbed in the stomach. He shouted as his body shook and swung back and forth from the power of the stab.
The man in black raised the knife to attack again.
“No, no, no, please stop!” he shouted.
He felt the knife pierce his throat then his chest. The blood ran down his body and his face. The last thing he saw was the man pull the bag off his head. It was his neighbor, the owner of the dog.
