A sound distracted him. He gazed out of the window, his mind troubled.
He couldn’t get last night out of his mind. It pricked his conscience at what he did.
He was just leaving the bar, that he saw her by chance. He got chatting and bought her a drink.
New in town, with her trustful eyes, thinking him to be genuine, she asked him directions for a safe place to stay the night.
Taking advantage of her modest nature, he brought her to his place instead. What happened next, he could never forgive himself. The animal in him ravaged her.
