The Termination

Once when he was seven he witnessed the murder. A family member, his best friend, his father’s brother, terminated a woman just like they do in all the games. That woman was not his best friend, nor was she his friend. He disliked her because she took his best friend away from him every night. He would hear them playing in the middle of the night- every night. This angered him because she would not let him join in their fun. Terrence swore his allegiance to his father’s brother on the night of the termination. And for 3 years not a word departed from his lips.

After the termination, whenever things humored him, he only wore a smile that could only be seen in his eyes.
