L is for Love (A Serial Killer Story)

This is the first segment of a story that was nearly five years in the making. It began as a writing assignment in college and was worked on slowly but surely until I was happy ending it. Countless hours of research, bottles of wine, pots of tea and/or coffee, pints of beer, and boxes of goldfish are thanked for the making of this story. I introduce you to Scarlett, Viktor, and Cassie, my stars. A new segment every day! A love story…and killing people. Enjoy!

She had no idea she was watched. Everything about her was noticed: her long black hair, hourglass figure and long legs, red-rimmed glasses and her favorite pair of ripped jeans. Every little thing regarded as insignificant, was noticed. Tonight she will see just how important it is to pay attention to things around you.  It’s time to show her that nothing, no not nothing, but no one, should go unnoticed.
