iPhone Notes Story 10.27.15

He took. Never borrowed.
Lives lost to his personal brand of mayhem were never returned. Gone forever.
He skipped, turned sideways and ducked behind a corner before they came around the other. They were under the mistaken impression that they were tracking him, driving him into a dead end. They were right on that point; the dead part.
In each hand, he held a Sig Sauer 9 mm pistol. When he takes double aim, people fall, collapse, die immediately or minutes later.
The four following him would soon learn this last life lesson.
It was never easy. Taking everything from another changes you. His continuing evolution resulting from this chosen life of death transformed him into something he could not explain, couldn’t decipher.
Taking a life is transformative. Extinguishing dozens, hundreds of lives results in mutation. That is the closest word he can find. His mutation from one organism to complete other was visible to any who have known him for any time.
Where once there was smile and love and wonder in hopeful eyes, there is now only black. Empty black.
The lives he had taken across these many years never filled this void. He felt that with each, the black further consumed the remaining elements not yet mutated. Still he perpetuated. He continued down this endless and unlit path. Four more would fall into that empty blackness within minutes. One day this will end. One of them will take his life. Then he can become the black.
