Chapter One: Rain

I take another sip of my hot coffee while listening to the rain that’s splashing against my window and the light jazz music that I’m playing while reading the newspaper, it’s the small things in life my father always told me, I guess he was right. But now I gotta go out and look after billy and hope there’s not one of these cockroaches and scum that are all over this town that I grew up in annoying him, but I also need a donut. I take the hat of my dad he gave me before he passed and put my leatherjacket on and as soon I step on these disgusting wet streets that smell like piss, and the junkies u can hear from far yelling at everything, I just wanna get in my car quickly. I arrive in my favorite diner and talk to billy, I know him since I’m young he’s like my grandpa. „Hey John how are u this night „ billy asked me as soon as he sees me.

I love the smell of this diner, the familiar face, the music playing and the tv on the whole time, idk why. I hear the clock ticking. Suddenly this guy sits next to me,

„It’s John, what’s yours“

„Mike“ he sayd

„I was a cop“



„Why was“ I really didn’t like that, if I wanted to tell u why I would’ve sayd why.

I drifted away for some seconds, a memory of my boss telling me:

„You’re a Psychopath John, get out“. „U okay?“ Mike says louder and wakes me up.

Me:“I didn’t go after the book u could say“ I think that’s all he needed to know.

„Oh“ then a long pause

„Cops are doing it wrong anyway“

Mike sayd and I take another bite of my donut,
