I stood there, face to face with the man who'd killed my family, a lousy drunk driver. I'm not sure how long I've been searching. All I know is that I had finally found the bastard that had eluded me for so long.

With gun in hand, pointing at his head, I searched his eyes for signs of remorse, guilt, sorrow. They were cold tombstones, devoid of any life. My hand trembled as I steadied it and pulled the trigger.

The mirror shattered into a thousand pieces, falling like crystallized raindrops down into the sink. And then he was gone.

    Thank you, Peter. Sorry for being nine months late with a response. I see you read several of my early drabbles but I must have missed the notifications months ago. Thanks again.
