There I was ... waiting for the perfect moment; to strike my enemy… who's life should have been ended long ago. Looking through the scope of my gun; lined up perfectly between his eyes, I slowly pulled the trigger...

... But only half way. Odd. What was stopping me? I hated this guy more than anyone else in the world, yet I couldn't do it! He was there, sitting all alone, eating his lunch. I almost felt bad for him, he'd had a difficult life. However, the sympathy I had for him was over run by anger from what he'd done in the past. I just couldn't let it go. Killing him was the only way to put my mind at ease.

I prepared myself to shoot, one … two … three ...

Nothing.

Maybe I wasn't meant to kill. I wanted him dead, but because of the small (very small) amount of sympathy I had for him...I couldn't. Damn my caring soul!

I packed up my gun in my carry-on and walked to my car, like nothing had happened. Or was going to happen. I thought I would just forget about the whole thing, and forget about him. Maybe I'd get some anti-depressants? Brighten up my mood? I definitely needed a better outlet for my anger.

I just wasn't sure how i'd stop myself from punching him in the face If I came in contact with him. I might have not be able to kill him, but I could sure hit em' without a hint of guilt!

I pulled into my driveway. I was happily greeted by my dog, Pib , at the door. Normally, I would smother him with love; I just felt like being around nobody but myself. Considering I was about to kill someone earlier... it was something that would take quite some time to forget. I needed to be alone for a while...
