He was sure it had been an accident, and that it had not been his fault, and yet, he was charged with committing a gruesome crime. He had never thought he would get into this kind of trouble. In his confused state of mind, his actions had been those of libation, but the ugliness of it had now marred his future. Or was he being sacrificed by someone with an ulterior agenda? He kept asking himself how long he would be able to handle the pressure. How long would it take before he would have to settle for the deal before him? The other side seemed to have plenty of time, just waiting for him to break down, and the slow passage of time was really taking it’s toll on him now...
