Cash On Delivery, Dead on Arrival
The assignment seemed odd to me at first. The client wanted a truly perfect assassination. A murder so horrible it would on forever, and yet so perfectly crated that it would never be solved. Even stranger, the target was a seemingly normal suburban writer.
But, they were paying me millions to complete the mission. I moved into the suburban Maryland neighborhood to get closer to the target. We became friends as I learned everything about his life. My plans for the most horrible murder in history continued, but the client kept making more demands.
Years passed and my friendship with C.D. continued. I went to his wedding, he was godfather to my son. To the outside world, we were best friends. Until finally, the client approved my plan.
The assassination was truly beautiful. Terrible and disgusting in every way and worthy of a 20 year friendship.
