I swear I see copper winking at me from inside the Ruger’s barrel. He attacked me while I was jogging in the park. Earbuds in and a head full of tunes, and I didn’t hear him. He materialized in front of me with the gun pointed at me eye level.
“What the hell?”
A grin stretches his face. He chuckles then begins laughing.
I throw earbuds, phone, watch and yell,
“What do you want?”
He wipes at the tears from his maniacal laughter and pulls the trigger.
Laughter stops. He runs.
