A Walk In The Park
"Once you've done it a couple of times," they said, "it will become easy. The weapon will become like an extension of your body, of your being. You will disassociate yourself with any emotional implications that often follow such tasks. You will feel nothing, you will be numb. It will be like a walk in the park."
I press my finger gently on the trigger, not enough to let the round off, but enough to stop myself from trembling.
I begin to wonder if my first kill will ever happen . . .
