The Man Who Once Slept

Prompt: Describe a lake as seen by a young man who has just murdered someone.


Original Airdate: October 23, 2010


He looked out over the lake's still, moonlit surface, touching the intricate balcony rail tenderly. The estate really was grand and beautiful, its property stretching as far as the eye could see.

The man who had slept in the master bedroom had been lucky to own such wealth.

He looked down into the lake's waters, picking out his reflection on the surface, amongst the stars. He looked so calm to himself, so composed. No chance of making a mistake. His reflection smiled and he turned, slipping past the man who had once slept in the master bedroom silently on his way out.
