In My Next Life

I knew my life would never be the same once I had to leave. Everything I knew and loved was at this beach and because of unforeseen circumstances, I could no longer stay. I knew it was partially my fault, but I also knew that if Steve hadn’t reacted the way he did, I would not be in this situation. I began to form a plan – if I could just get rid of Steve I could stay. He was the only one who knew I was responsible for the murder in the first place. If only he hadn’t interrupted me.

  7. Once you’ve killed once, it’s probably not that hard to just let Steve have a little accident with a cliff, no is it? Nice mystery here. I hope Steve is forewarned and already at the police station!

  8. I think it’s already too late. If s/he expected a different reaction from Steve, he’s probably already told someone. There’s a lot of story here, I love it.

  11. It’s all Steve’s fault then. Some people just can’t resist telling others off when they murder people.
