“Do you think it’s that easy? One day you will make a mistake and you will get caught. Don’t you care even a bit about your future?”
“What’s the point of worrying about the future if it disturbs your present? I prefer not thinking about it.”
“What present are you talking about? You’re an addict. There’s no coming back from the path you’re on!”
“I can’t help it. It makes me feel good, it’s the only way I can live with myself.”
“And what about everybody else? Did their present not matter to you when they were screaming for their lives in front of you? Did their voice not make your conscious bleed?”
“No. It soothed me instead.”
“Even that little baby girl?”
“Specially, that little baby girl.”
“You do realize you are everywhere in the news, don’t you? Not much time and they’ll know who was behind all those murders. You need to stop for good.”
“I will. Just… not today… I promise I won’t do it tomorrow…” he smiled.
“Alright…” he smiled too.
This whole serial killer tag was too heavy for him… This everyday conversation with the mirror was the only way he could redeem himself.
