The Removal Man

I’m not ashamed of my job. I’m good at it, and people are willing to pay. It’s a public service, nothing more.

This one’s an abuser. A fiend. He beat his wife until she no longer looked like his wife. She survived, though, and paid me in one large installment.

“What happened?” I ask her. That’s how I map out my route.

Shove, slap, punch, kick, kick, slap, punch, punch, punch, punch…

When I’m done, I’m actually tired. Old stumpy here isn’t; he passed out half-way through. Lucky.

The wife leaves happy, then my Cleaner clocks in.

Next up? The rapist.

  1. Short and sweet. Er…maybe not so sweet, but you get the picture. Glad you didn’t give the blow by blow for the rapist coming up next…that could have been…er…uncomfortable for everyone…

  2. Yes, there is a lot going on under the surface here, (as Icy mentioned). I’m intrigued by this character Jack, he deserves a much longer story, an extension I mean – short, novella….hint. 😉
