How To Save A Life

by NeonTempo

What would you do if you could stop a murder before it happened?

The gift of foresight is a privilege and a responsibility. While I undoubtedly have to save the victim I also have to acknowledge that the perpetrator hasn't yet committed a crime.

It's a problem I've struggled with more than anyone, despairingly so at times.

In the end it took meticulous planning, perfect execution and an incredible amount of personal risk to enact a system that saves them both.

I hate the first part most; subduing the future perpetrator and taking them to a small patch of land I bought outside the city.

The bunker is subterranean and soundproofed, giving them no clue of their location once they wake.

Next they are held and restrained.

From that point on I cater to their needs until the appropriate amount of time has passed, ensuring they are as comfortable as I can make them without risking their escape.

Finally, I subdue them once more, drive them to the edge of town and anonymously send their location to the authorities. I then return to my apartment, and start planning again.

I know I make it sound so systematic, clinical even, but it takes a heavy toll. The paranoia, the stress.

I can never explain my actions to those I imprison and even if I tried I know they couldn't accept it.

Sometimes I regret ever seeking the foresight I've been afforded and bemoan the obligation it imbues.

But only I can save these people before they're murdered, and while there are still people to save I will continue my work.

Until I'm caught.

Or until the family planning clinic updates security on its appointment software.
