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.

„It’s John, what’s yours“

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
