f18000. that was what he was being paid for murder. She'd seen to much. She was the key to blowing the case wide open. He scanned the crowded mall, looking for the face in the photo. He spotted it, and reeled back in surprise. She was just a teenager, barely old enough to drive. He pulled himself together, then put the newly loaded gun back in his waistband. He tracked the victim out of the mall and into the parking lot. She was completely oblivious, laughing and talking with her friends. She said good bye and made her way across the parking lot, alone. Her fatal mistake. He pulled out the gun. Closing his eyes, he pulled the trigger. He heard her scream, then hit the pavement. When he opened his eyes, he saw her body lying dead on the pavement. f18000. That was the price of a human life.
