There is somebody looking at my house. Why are you doing this? I just wanted to have a calm life, why are you threatening me with your presence, please stop. I bought this house because it is far from civilization (not exactly away from it but it was located in a deserted area with few houses), far from all those eyes which look at you with hate and hypocrisy, yet even though I’m far away there is somebody outside of my house. I opened the window and shout “Go away or I’ll kill you” but the man was unmoving, like hypnotized, no it wasn’t hypnotism or some paranormal activity, he was threatening me, so I have to do the same. I went to my room and grabbed a gun that I bought online, I’ve never learned to use a gun, but I think it is time to learn.

I was too scared of society to step outside my house, and also it was really cold since we were in mid-winter, so I opened one of the windows and aimed the gun at him. “Don’t make me do this” I said but he was there, staring at me, looking at me, provoking me. I couldn’t see his face since it was kind of dark outside, but I know he’s smiling, he thinks he’s funny, he enjoys the suffering of a man who is only looking for peace, and so I shot at him. It was a warning shot, yet that man remained calm in the situation he was in, so I knew I had to kill him, but is it really correct to kill a man, can I accept the fact that I will become a murderer; will I be the one who ends up destroying my own peace?

I shot at him, I didn’t care anymore, and any sense of moral values was destroyed when he decided to interrupt my everyday life. “Since my day was already ruined, it gives me the opportunity to ruin his too’’ So I continued with the shots until the magazine was empty, I was too afraid to look at that horrible scene so I closed the window and went to my room, while laughing hysterically because I’ve finally managed to return to my peaceful days. “It is all over now“ I said before falling into a deep slumber.

The next morning Bobby and Jake were surprised to see the snowman they built had bullet holes all over his body.
