The Beat of a Bloodless Heart


Chapter One


The starless night was dark and stormy. A thick covering of grey clouds blotted out any light the moon may have cast. The sky threatened a coming rainstorm but that hadn’t happened yet. The gloomy darkened sky made tonight’s kill easier than most. No one could see me hidden in the shadows of the garbage strewn alley. I was perched behind a rusting solid steel trash bin covered with ripped and shredding political posters, biting my nails absent-mindedly and killing time until a likely prospect showed up. There wasn’t much going on in this decaying section of the city at this time of the night. It was a warehouse district for the most part, with a few shabby (and probably shady) establishments scattered here and there amongst the aging storehouses. My hiding spot was just south of a fishery that reeked of smelly, rotting fish. There was a greasy spoon diner with a bar attached right at the head of the alley where I waited. The customers that frequented it were usually rough-house type characters of no-good account. I had no mental qualms at taking down any of the clientele (if you could call them that) coming out of there. I had my standards and they were not on the high side.
