It's a Wonderful Death

by VJWild

The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.

Blood is everywhere.

It drips from the branches of a small Christmas tree that sits on the nightstand; its white lights now glow red.

Most of the deceased's head is missing- the right jaw shattered, the eye sockets empty, the entire frontal lobe, gone.

The smell of iron is heavy. The smell of death is even heavier.

The TV is on, muted. It's A Wonderful Life.

A bell on the tree jingles. "Teacher says every time a bell rings, an angel gets its wings."

The child smirks as she sets down the gun and watches the winged shadow fly away.
