The cold water hits his head as if to confirm that's it a new day."music please",he shouts out.A loud pop sound starts running through out the house.Mumbling along to the music he walks around the house like a guest and not an occupant.His naked body prances over a male and female body in the passage,as he keeps mumbling to the music playing.He picks up his lighter,gets dressed then kisses both the cold corpses passionately.Out the door he goes,blending with the busy morning city crowd.

Television,"Breaking news,another couple found dead,this makes it the 8th couple in a month to be found.We have no confirmation if its one person who is responsible for these killings but please be careful and if you see any suspicious characters call the cops,better safe then sorry.We have Cedric with the weather report up next"."Switch off",a voice from afar screams.The T.V goes off and a dead silence hits the house.A lighter flickers,he puffs all his guilt up in smoke as he holds a meeting with his shadow.Laughter echoes throughout the house as he stands up and picks up his weapon of choice,also not forgetting his lighter.

The sun sets as the city night life lights up.Groups of people walking the streets,innocence fills the clubs.People just out to have a good time.Amongst the loud music and busy street,a lighter flickers.He stumbles upon a couple in the alley rolling up some weed."Need a lighter?",he asks them."Yeah brother,perfect timing",the man says while his girlfriend is giggling in excitement.He stretches his hand out and lights up the neatly wrapped spliff,as the smoke hits the air a sudden darkness seems to surround the trio."So what's your name stranger?",the lady asks."Just call me your lighter angel and that will do",he says while playing around with it.The couple laugh at the response and don't bother to follow that up.The trio end up finishing up they illegal deed and start walking towards the light of the busy streets but before they can reach it the man with the lighter strikes the guy in the head and knocks him out,the lady screams but her screams are swallowed by the masses on a busy night.He takes her by the neck,and whispers something to her.Suddenly there's a calm,they both pick up the guys body and move towards the light.

The lady opens the door to what seems to be her apartment,"lights on",she says.The place lights up,right behind her a body is being dragged into the house.No one speaks,Its as if she knows her death is imminent but for some reason she can't find it in her to try call for help.Right before her eyes he kills the man,then looks up at her.Standing very still and calm as if she's about to win an award,she meets her death!"lights off",he says.Then walks off into the dark.The next day cold water hits his head as if to confirm that's it a new day."music please",he shouts out.A loud pop sound starts running through out the house.Mumbling along to the music he walks around the house to the sight of two bodies.He drags the bodies into a cuddle formation before passionately kissing both the cold corpses.He picks up his lighter,gets dressed and out the door he goes,blending with the busy morning city crowd.
