Regretting Mistakes..
Alberto Pupo

  What happened was a terrible mistake. A case of
mistaken identity. Yes, it wasn't her blood on my hands, it wasnt her heart in my hand.
Blonde, leggy, beautiful all of that, she was until she ran into the blade, spilling her life source into a world not ready to receive it.
A chain of events were set in motion, wiping the blade clean once again purified hopefully. In the eyes of society stood a monster, in the heart of my family a beaten man who snapped. Yes why did this happen? all was well.
  Two O clock Wednesday a great day indeed.
The weather was fine a raise in the future.
Life was grand..... she came into the office eyes shining bright displaying, pearly white teeth a smile made for television. Gorgeous! absolutely stunning, my first urge was to fuck her senseless,
(um sorry about that) Actually talking to her will do... She began to head my way I combed back my ruffled curls trying to look decent, trying to look appealing qualities which many say I lacked.
"Hi my name is Sharon and I want to speak to
Dr. Wilson." I did not hear a single word she said, I stared deeply into emerald eyes yearning for her. Could she not see my ain this suffering?
Apparently not she simply hissed in disgust, as I stood there salivating in ecstacy. As I watched her walk away I couldn't tear my eyes away..
Wow what a total package women don't come that gorgeous these days.
 Thursday another day, boredom a terrible boredom which I could not escape from. Damn it the coffeewas atrocious headache wouldn't go away, all night I couldn't stop thinking about her, she apeared in several dreams usually naked and willing. Yes the dreams of an American pervert that would make a fine film indeed.. Right maybe I've been reading too many comic books. The day
went agonizingly slow, menial paperwork always the worst of all. Sometimes he imagines his hands around the boss's throat watching those beady eyes bulging from their resting places.
Face wearing a nice shade of crimson as oxygen flow is cut off.. Yes that would be wonderfuleven better than those fantasies with the blonde babe.
He got up started doing a little pacing it does wonders for the heart or at least that is what the medical experts say. Eyes briefly fell upon him wondering what this sad little man is doing.
Standing at an unimpressive 5'5 a short squattish nose and thinning curly hair he isnot muchof a looker. Actually many ofthe females tend to avoid his leery gaze especially when he stares idiotically at their heaving bosoms.
A fascination with breasts has always existed its the first thing he sees on any woman. Actually its kind of a benchmark test of womanhood, big and round a definite woman.. small and cherry like tend to avoid. Anyhow that is a toic best avoided for a perverse mind isquite frightening.
 Suddenly as if from a dream she appears once more golden hair flowing loosely sexual, seductive, shapely legs perfectly displayed driving him wild. Right then, right now he must take initiative she is too beautiful to let slip by that Nordic Goddess tye is a rare commodity.
"Sharon hi remember me I.." once again his palms began to sweat stuttering began to rear its ugly head and apparently all bravery has left the building. He was a wreck breaking down before eyesboth organic and electric which carefully watched his moves. Laughter! they all laughed rejection on her mind in her eyes signs of no entry aearing on her body, Access denied! and then it all came to a grinding halt.........
    Demoralized a beaten man he returned to the desk contmelating suicide eager to exit this forsaken and utterly cruel world. Too many rejections, never will he get laid.... nothing ever changes.... Sweetheart will die by the blade! Humanity leaving the body a single urpose in mind he grabbed the shining blade griping it tightly he followed the perfume trail leading to the outside a perfect oppourtunity no one saw or asked about the weapon, in fact nobody cared he is a harmless little fuck a tooth pick blessed with the ability to walk.. At last he reached her she was not alone... Standing at six feet a dark tan,and a steroid enchanced body...... The dear little slut was engaged in conversation with Paul the President's son. A little pretty who the women went wild for, a steroid pumping narcisists
who enjoyed his muscles more than he did women.
Yet.. there she is laughing, fliriting quite possibly soon to be engaging in a little tongue action followed by further actions back at his place. That's if she ever makes it that far or if that fucker lives.. With a primal yell he stepped out of the shadows blade raised in his hand, blindly he lunged at pretty boy who groaned in pain as the blade slashed the forearm.. Quickly he took controlripping the knife from his hands slamming our little would be killer into the pavement. "Ok you little pencil pushing fuck, what the hell is up with this huh?" he pressed his boot on the throat cutting any remaining oxygen, until the dark took hold........
   He was awakened by sirens the sounds of voices and a sticky fluid upon his hands, blood no doubt about it. On the other hand he helda blade drenched in blood, her body so pale and cold lay motionless, dead... Here is where we first met the man in question crucified caught red handed, memories wiped away after passing out. "No its a mistake" he repeated time and time again.......
And so he made headlines office worker goes on a bizarre rampage may face death penalty. They pleaded for mercy he knew himself to be innocent, yet this is quite a task to prove. At night he hears laughter vaguely remembering a voice promising change a voice he will never forget the voice of a demon, a killer a true friend, never to be found again. Time passes and with every hour he pays for his lust every moment he regrets meeting her, that gorgeous being.Lust has brought him to a downfall. Night and day regrets come and go, and outside he hears a maniacal laughter.
