Betrayal by Alain Gomez

Those fools!

They had no idea what they were getting themselves into.  The young knew nothing.

Well, he would show them.  He didn’t care if they ignored the plan he had presented.

A few hushed steps from behind.

What’s this?  Had one of them come to say they had changed their minds?

The cold metal slipped between his ribs and pushed into his lungs.

If felt like hours had gone by before he finally realized what had happened.

Blood seeped down his back.

He felt out of breath.

It was so much effort to stand.  Maybe dropping to his knees would make things a little better.

Still hard to breathe.

He would lie down on his side.  That would definitely make things better.

Just a little sleep was all he needed to feel better in the morning.
