First Lines Contest 2018: Murder In The Bush

CM October 15, 2017
First Lines Contest 2018: Murder In The Bush

Blood splattered the walls of the grimy tenement flat as the petite, brown-haired woman was punched from one wall to another by a large drunken man. A sixteen-year-old boy, his face pallid from under-nourishment and lack of sunlight, watched in horror from behind a torn curtain, as he had done since he was a small child. When the beating stopped, the man undid his trousers, straddled the woman and took her by force.
