Unforgivable Sinner

He was a collector, although few people called him that. But really he was.

“You’re just a regular asshole.”

He slapped the girl. Gagged her. He didn’t like girls who cursed: girls were supposed to be proper, sweet. Of course, that’s why he’d brought her here. She was a sinner, a call girl lost in lust. She needed to be shown the way.

But she fought, kicked him and tried to escape. It took all his strength to stop her though she was tied to a chair. By the time she stopped moving, he realized he’d bludgeoned her to death in anger. He groaned. he was a collector of souls, reforming them before their final journey. Killing them before they saw the path made him cranky.

Grumbling, he wrapped her in white curtains; she looked an angel, but for the red spoiling the veil. She must disappear. Like the others.

    Wonderfully creepy, deep and dark. Use of the words striking. Your dark side is showing, and you wear it well.

    Didn’t meet his objective. She denied him that.

    1. I’m guessing it’s better that way and that his “path to reformation” might have been worse…

    This reminded me of John Fowles, ‘The Collector’ equally sinister and creepy….you conveyed the horror of it all so well…

    1. I remember there was a movie called ‘The Collector’: I imagine it was inspired by a book but don’t recall much more.
      Thank you very much 🙏🏻
