Battery (Part 5)

Good morning!  It’s Friday!  Does anyone have any awesome plans for the weekend?  I hope to get some writing done, but otherwise I have to work.  Oh well, you do what you gotta do right?

We continue on our journey with Nick.  I thought he would’ve been caught by now, but I guess he was sneaker than I thought.  We continue on this Dark story to see what will happen next.  Enjoy!


The body of Ashanti Jones was found next to Inada Street in the early hours of the morning.  She was killed by blunt force trauma to the back of her head. Police are asking for any information about her death.  She is survived by her parents, Shaun and Dory, and 4 younger sisters.

“Hello officer.  Come on in.” Nick shook the hand of the police officer and showed him into the office.  He pointed to a chair in front of his desk. “Please have a seat. How can I help you?”

Officer Nogall sat in his chair and looked at Nick.  “We have video outside of Jo’s Bar where you let Ashanti Jones into your truck.  Is that true?”

Nick leaned back in his chair.  It had been three days since he had killed Ashanti and he was a little nervous since the police had come to him.  “Uh…yeah. I got in my car and she knocked on the window and asked if I would give her a ride. She was super drunk and she asked if I was her Uber.  I wasn’t but I agreed to take her home to make sure she was safe. She told me her address and told me to drop her off at the corner because he parents wouldn’t approve of someone dropping her off that they didn’t know.  So that’s what I did. I dropped her off on the corner of Amelia and Courtney. Once she got out of the truck, I went home. That’s it.”

“So you didn’t take her to the middle of Inada and kill her?”

“What?”  Nick was shocked.  Where they actually accusing him of murder?  “No! I am on your side, you know that. I would never do something like that.  I wanted to make sure that she got home safely.” He shook his head. “I didn’t know it was wrong of me to be a decent human being.”

The officer held up a hand.  “I know you are upset. I just have to ask.  I know you’re a good guy Nick, I am just doing my job.  And I believe you. I don’t think you would hurt a fly. Thank you for your time.”  He got up and shook Nick’s hand.

Nick showed him to the door.  “Thank you officer. I hope you can figure out who did it.”

Officer Nogall turned back.  “Me too Nick. Me too.”




“No…no…no…oh, definitely no…oh…maybe…”  Nick was flipping through Tinder hoping to find someone he could bring over for the night.  Tashia was out of town so it made things a lot easier for him to find someone to kill. It had been 3 days since the police talked to him about Ashanti and he was getting anxious about killing someone.

He came across the picture of a stunning girl named Nicole.  She had long blonde hair and big blue eyes. He snickered, she kinda looked like Tashia.  Nick swiped right and got an immediate match. He sent her a message. Hey babes.  What are you up to today?

Nick sat back and waited.  Was she going to message him back?  His phone buzzed and he picked it up.  It was a message from Nicole. Not much.  Just waiting for you to come over ;).

Nick stood up and started to get his plan into action.  What your address?  I can come on over if you’re ready.

He went into the garage and found the baseball bat.  His phone vibrated as he set the bat in the bed of his truck.  My roommate leaves for work in 10 minutes, so we will have the house to myself.  So you can make your way over.  She added her address and Nick was ready for the kill.

Okay.  I will see you soon.  He poured some coolant into a small jar and closed the lid.  Nick climbed into his truck and made his way over to Nicole’s place.

He parked in the visitor parking of the apartment complex and walked over to her apartment.  Nick smiled, it was a single story apartment that shared one wall with another apartment. It was the perfect set up, but he still didn’t think he could pull off a murder in the apartment.  Nick walked up to the door and knocked. He waited for a mere second before the door flew open. Inside was a young girl who was probably 18 wearing a questionable amount of clothes.  Nick was immediately dragged into the apartment and thrown on the couch. “Hey baby. You ready to get the party started?”

Nick slowly stood up and put his hands on her hips.  “Yes. But…maybe we should go somewhere else. Somewhere more private?”  He winked, hoping that it would sway her to go somewhere more isolated.

She giggled and smiled.  “Sure. Where were you thinking?”

He shrugged.  “I don’t know.  Just…somewhere where no one would find us.  What do you say?”

Nicole giggled again.  “Sure. I’m game for whatever.  Let’s go!”

Nick led her out the door and toward his car.  He knew he was going to take her out to the country and beat her with the bat.  He still wasn’t sure how he was going to do it but what he did know that he was going to take another life.

The entire drive was filled with non-important chatter.  Nick didn’t really care about Nicole’s life and what she wanted to do with her life.  And he definitely didn’t care about her 2 hamsters that she hoped would have babies. But when he was getting close to his victim, he had to listen to them and make them feel like he cared.

He ended up driving a lot further than he expected to, going into a more mountainous area.  It actually would make things easier in regards to killing Nicole. He pulled over on the side of the road and parked the truck.  “I think this is isolated enough. What do you think?”

Nicole leaned over the middle console and kissed Nick.  “This is perfect. We can go far into the woods and no one will ever find us or hear us.  Let’s get started.” She quickly jumped out of the truck and started making her way deep into the forest.

Nick slowly got out of the driver’s seat and grabbed the bat out of the bed of the truck.  He started following Nicole, watching her outline go deeper into the trees. He had to make sure not to lose her since it was getting dark.  She stopped and turned around to look at him. “Do you think this is far enough?”

“Yeah!  I think this is good.”  He had to yell to her because he was so far behind.  But he saw her turn around and start getting undressed.  He felt his heart jump, he didn’t want her to be found naked.  Nick started to sprint forward and lifted the bat above his head to strike her.  He got close enough and smashed the bat on the top of her head.  Her whole body crumpled and he hit her again. Nick stood there over her body, watching a pool of blood form around her head.

4 people who he killed, 4 innocent lives he had taken, 0 regrets about anything that had happened.
