In Her Apartment.

By C. E. Malone.

The dark-haired man walked quietly towards his victim. She was a business woman, with an attitude. She was currently in her apartment, for him to get her key was just too easy. He stepped over the cable leading to the television. She was sitting on the sofa, innocently watching television. The BBC News was on. She was watching intently, too intently. Silently he creeped up behind her. She didn't hear until it was too late. He had slit her throat with a knife he got from her kitchen. He wiped the blood off the knife onto her expensive jumper. He turned the television off with a click and moved out of the apartment.
