I Am a Morning Person

by Dove_of_Doom

*The sun is up... Finally...* Another day, another dollar. Who's the next contestant on The Price is Right? According to the package, it's Daniel and Jennifer Wainwright.

Today's job is a family affair.

I hear the front door open and close, then Mark Wainwright calling out, "Honey, I'm home!" Christ, what a cliché.

He comes strolling into the kitchen and the stupid smile on his face twists into a horrified rictus at the sight of his wife and six-year-old son seated at the kitchen table with

their throats cut. Wainwright wails like a wounded animal, and I fire my taser at his chest, delivering yet another shock to his system.

When he wakes, Wainwright's tied to a chair, his head and eyelids taped so he can't escape the tableau of his murdered family. "OH, GOD!" he screams and starts sobbing. "Mark... Mark...

" I calmly repeat his name until he's paying attention. "Dawson says hi," I tell him.

And that's the job.

I survey the scene before I leave. The mother and son look so peaceful and rested. It makes me jealous. I wish I could rest.

*But how can a monster like you sleep at night?* I don't, thank you very much. My mind chatters away non-stop whenever I try.

I'm like a shark swimming through life, blood in my wake, never staying still.

Everyday I punch someone's ticket and I envy them and I hate them and I hate myself and every night I go drinking and drugging and fighting and fucking and I can't ever fucking stop and I

can't *MOTHERFUCKING SLEEP* and then...

*The sun is up... Finally...* Another day, another dollar...
