Of all the things I wanted to do today, killing Billy Baker wasn’t one of them. He was my best friend and had been since we were snot-nosed kids with skinned knees burning ants with a magnifying glass on the sidewalk. I loved him like a brother. Hell, I loved him more than I loved my brother. I talked to my brother maybe twice a year, but not a day went by that I didn’t talk to Billy. We were inseparable and always had been. But now, he had become nothing more to me than a rock in my shoe, annoying at first but really starting to piss me off.
