8 days.

Even by his standards, that was bad.

That was it. Next years resolution - no more bloody resolutions.

1999 - He’d vowed to stop drinking.
2003 - He swore he'd quit smoking.
2005 - He'd quit Katie Delaney for good this time.
2009 - He'd finally join the gym.
2012 - He'd take the anger management course.
2014 - He'd definitely stop drinking.

He stubbed out his cigarette and downed the last of the Whisky.

Reminiscing about broken promises would have to wait. This years resolution failure wasn't going to bury itself.

He shook his head, smiled at his own stupidity and started to dig.

    Never read such a chill and mathematical account of what I can only assume is a murder. Great drabble, nice to meet you
