The Witness

Walking alone.
Walking alone and yet… someone’s there.
You are a witness.
You are a witness to something unmentionable…
An unmentionable crime.
An unmentionable crime that will forever scar your belief in ethics.
It’s illegal.
It’s illegal and incredibly stupid.
Watching alone.
Watching alone as a masked man darts out from a store, pockets stuffed, shortly after gunfire.
Alarms rise through the air, traveling far.
The sounds find his ears.
He runs faster.
The sounds find your ears.
You stand there.
