One look

One hard intense look caused it all

A look through the eyes and straight into the soul

A look at the face of the villain

He became restless

Panicking…pulse racing

He sort for the solution

His hardened form panicked visibly

He knew it

She was memorising his features

He decide to end it all

To leave her lifeless

No testimony

No bars

With her purse in one hand

He lifted his tool of revenge with the other hand

The fear in her eyes

The shock

Brown eyes shaking in confusion

Pupils fully dilated

The tears pooled in her eyes

Her hands shook

She was shaking her pale face

Left to right

Right to left

Silently protesting

But he had his mind made up

There was no time for a talk

His cold heart felt no mercy

Forgiveness was far from him

She closed her eyes

He assessed her frail being

He couldn’t change his mind now

She had seen too much

Tears rolled down her bony cheeks

And then he pulled the trigger

One shot

She crumbled to the floor

Her frail body now almost lifeless

No more tears

Content with his actions

He fled quickly from the scene of the crime
