An Interesting Idea - Chapter Two
“You’re supposed to be in jail,” Will said, his voice quivering.
“I was, but I escaped,” the man replied with an evil grin.
“Why do you want kill me?” Will demanded.
“I don’t want anyone to know where I am, or who I am.”
“But I won’t tell, I swear,” Will pleaded.
“Ha, I can see right through you,” the man said with a smirk, “You’d go straight to the police.” Will was silent. The man smiled, “That’s why I have to kill you.”
“No, please don’t kill me,” Will pleaded.
“It’s too late, you shouldn’t have tried to stop me,” the man said with an evil grin. Then he raised his knife. Will cried out, the pain was unbearable. He wasn’t sure what made him do it, but Will started saying that Jake would get his attacker.

Jake watched wearily as the ambulance pulled away. Jake had already spotted the police officer coming up to him. He could tell it was going to be a long night. ‘I just hope they catch this guy,’ Jake thought angrily.
“Sir, did you see who did this?” the police officer asked.
“No, but I know who did,” Jake replied firmly.
“If you didn’t see him how do you know who it was?” the officer asked, quite puzzled.
“Because this has happened before.”
“You mean, this has happened once before?”
“Yes, that’s what I said,” Jake said irritably.
“Was anyone hurt then?”
“I think there may be something else here, I’m not sure what it is yet, but I’m going to need your help,” the officer said sternly.
tell me what you want me to do,” Jake said quietly.
