What's up, guys? I've had this idea in my mind for a while and finally got it onto paper. This will probably be the only part, even though the cliffhanger is obvious.


For the past 5 years I’ve been under the name, “Willis.” Everyone gets excitable when I say that, because they think I look like Bruce Willis. It’s a shame to turn down such an eager fanbase. I can’t just lie about my identity like that. I already have been enough.

Joe was my best buddy. We’d sit down at a park bench and take in the scene and actually… talk. About life and how ours would soon cease. For man to man conversation, it was blissfully peaceful. Not like any homosexual thing though… we were friends. Since college.

We shared a room for two years before I dropped out. That’s probably why I’m in the situation I am in in the first place. Joe has no idea, he doesn’t need any more stress in his life, his wife in a coma and all.

It was about 3 weeks ago when I left. Joe hasn’t seen me since. I hope we can keep it that way. He works hard enough without me interrupting everything. Anyway, his wife was found severely beaten. If they had arrived mere minutes later she wouldn’t have made it to the hospital alive. And how she looks there you’d be surprised when someone told you she WAS alive.

I’ve been on the road most of the time. Willis is a carpenter, he needs to keep his image. I had a good friend also from college who let me borrow his company’s truck so it looked like I was a carpenter. I’ve travelled the land far and wide to try and find a place to stay, but there’s no good place to live in this country anymore.

Too bad, as well, I was going to stay in a hotel for a while, but the manager just disappeared the first night I stayed. I wasn’t risking it and left right away. The town I’m in right now isn’t that cool, I think I’ll just keep moving.

Is that cop following me? Oh, I’m sorry, I get easily distracted. Yeah, the road’s been rough, but I know happiness awaits me. That’s what the pastors say, anyway, but with the way Christ’s been treating me lately, I couldn’t care less what those fools tell me.

This place looks nice. Cute little town. I like it. Well, thanks for listening to my story, where was it you needed to go again? Gas station? Cool. It was nice to meet you. Crazy circumstances you breaking down on the very same road I was travelling to escape my past.

Did I say something strange? What was it? Sorry if I offended you or something. Here we are. You know what, I’ll come in too. Could go for a drink.

Yeah, I’ll think I’ll stay here for a while. Wait, what’s on the T.V. over there?

“Hotel Manager found dead, suspect identified by tenet?”

What? She DIED? Wait… that’s my picture! Who in their right mind would think I killed someone? Video footage? That… looks EXACTLY like me! What? No it can’t be me.

“Suspect is thought to be linked to carpenter found dead outside building??”

This has to be some kind of trick! Who in their right mind? Look, it was cool to meet you, traveler, but I need to be moving on. I don’t think we’ll ever meet again, so be safe and good luck.

I just hope Joe’s wife doesn’t wake up.
