Justice is served, finally, in this short shocker.
WE CHANGED OUR MINDS
The five men and four women were hot and cramped in the back of the van, but didn’t complain. They’d made a terrible mistake and needed to make amends, even if the withholding of vital information meant they hadn’t been entirely blameworthy.
When the van stopped they opened the doors, picked up the trussed-up bundle from the floor, and threw it to the ground, where it landed with a grunt.
One man and two women emerged from the van’s cabin. The younger woman removed the hood from the prone figure to reveal a man’s face. It was handsome, despite the bruising.
She held a knife to his throat. ‘You stand accused of the murders of seven women. ‘
‘I’ve been through this,’ he protested. ‘I stood trial and was found not guilty. ‘
‘I know; it was us who gave the verdict,’ she said, severing his jugular vein.
‘We changed our minds.’
