“Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked”

I stood there in shock for what felt like forever, then finally I pulled out my cellphone. I intended to call the police but ended up dialing another number instead. Sid showed up within five minutes and was horrified when he saw Eddie’s body. He turned and looked at me, “Cassie…what did you do?” My voice trembled when I spoke, “It was…it was an accident. He killed Jennie! And he tried to kill me! I was only trying to get away from him! I swear Sid! What do I do now?” He pulled out his phone and started typing into it…”Okay, we’re gonna need some stuff to clean this mess up.
