it was just the three of us. the rapist, pedophile, murder and - the agent.
the agent in charge had no clue what i was after. he was the one that caught the bastard after a long hunt. i guess someone, somewhere was laughing his sick ass off assigning him to me.
"now - you will answer questions by this man, or they will carry you out of here. i was told you are to answer whatever he asks", he pointed at me, "or i am to use any means possible to make you talk."
"i ain't telling you shit!! what the fuck can you do to me. i'm serving seven life sentences. so fuck you", he told the agent.
"fuck information", i said, "i need you to kill a guy for me. publicly. today. he's in prison with you - different ward. we'll move you."
"what?", they both said at the same time.
"you deaf? i won't repeat myself."
i told him.
"are you fucking insane. do you know what they will do to me? nothing you can do will ever save me. i'm dead - fucking today. no fucking way, you feeling me? fuck you both!!"
"you do it - - you get out..."
"WHAT? ARE YOU FUCKING INSANE??? HE'S A FUCKING PEDOPHILE, MURDERER...", the agent jumped up and interrupted.
"you do it - - you get out. no questions asked. clean slate. you get pension and relocation to wherever the fuck you want. deal?"
"YOU CAN'T FUCKING DO THAT. I WON'T LET YOU."
"really? - read this."
"IMMEDIATE RELEASE? WHERE THE FUCK DID YOU GET THIS. WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU. THIS IS THE SIGNATURE..."
"yes it is."
i pulled out my gun. pushed it across the table.
"take it. we have a deal?"
"SHIT. FUCK. JESUS. HOLLY MOTHER OF - FUCK. HOW CAN YOU DO THIS?? HE FUCKS CHILDREN. HE IS AN ANIMAL. HE WILL DO IT AGAIN, THE SICK FUCK! JESUS FUCKING CHRIST."
"not an issue."
"NOT AN ISSUE??? NOT AN ISSUE??? NOT AN ISSUE??? HOW IS THAT NOT THE FUCKING ISSUE?"
"yeah, we have a deal. is this legit?"
the door opened. his lawyer walked in. she was pale. scared.
"yes. yeah... i verified it with the state's attorney. you do this, you walk - today."
"ARE YOU PEOPLE FUCKING CRAZY??? I HUNTED HIM FOR YEARS. YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S DONE, YOU FUCKING DEFENDED HIM... AND YOU - WHAT THE FUCK, I'LL KILL THE FUCKING GUY MYSELF - DON'T DO THIS!"
"it is what it is."
"honestly? i have no idea", i lied.
"JESUS MARY AND JOSEPH."
"fuck it i'll do it. RIGHT FUCKING NOW!"
"great. unlock", i pointed at the cuffs.
"we'll arrange for him to be in the yard. you'll be taken out as soon as its done. now get to it."
"YOU ARE A FUCKING LUNATIC. WHO DO YOU BLOODY WORK FOR?"
"like i am going to tell you."
i sat there until they brought him back. not a drop of blood on him, breathing heavily. the agent was yelling at someone on the phone outside the room.
"it's done. now i walk?"
"your country thanks you."
"you are really going to let me go? i thought it was a fucking long shot, but..."
"nobody cares about a few children", i answered, "that is the world we live in. enjoy."
i left. the agent caught up with me outside, slamming the cell phone against the wall.
"WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU DO?"
"it had to go down like this. thank you for your help."
"WHAT THE FUCK. FUCK YOU AND YOURS. FUCK YOU."
"your country thanks you."
"FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKER. ASSHOLE... YOU FUCKING SON OF A BITCH...", the torrent of abuse continued while i walked away.
