And the words: “Vengeance and retribution require a long time; it is the rule.”
― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities


Jason wasn’t a patient man. He had read somewhere that Vengeance and retribution require a long time; it is the rule, but he wanted his vengeance now, as soon as possible.

Hiding behind the wall of one of the waterfront houses, he kept an eye on Pat’s movements. She was leaning lovingly on the arm of her boyfriend and was whispering something in his ear. His blood boiled. How dare she dump him and take up this Romeo, he thought. He could feel the bulge of his gun in his waistband. He will show them both who had the last laugh.

He silently withdrew his gun, checked that it was loaded, and aimed. He felt there was someone behind him and was poking him with a blunt object in his kidney area.

Jason hastily dropped the gun and turned around.

He was staring into the steely eyes of Pat’s boyfriend!
