Babyrhinos: No clue whatsoever

"No clue whatsoever." I said, as I answered the phone.

"Find it!" the deep, filtered voice said, "Find it!"

"I don't understand!" I said angrily.

The voice seemed to chuckle, "The day is bright, but night is coming..."

"Please, just explain to me, what am I supposed to find?! You told me I'd know once I got to the bar, but I still have no clue!"

The voice laughed louder. I heard the sound of a gun and almost had a heart attack from horror, "NO! Don't touch her! DON'T TOUCH HER YOU-"

"Find it by tonight, or I shoot her."

"HOW AM I EVER SUPPOSED TO FIND IT IF I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR?!" I yelled, tears streaming down my cheeks.

Other people who were in the bar were giving me glances of worry.

I walked outside the bar and paced back and forth.

"You'll know." the voice said, "Ask the bartender for a drink. When he gives you a cup, empty out the liquid, but keep in all the solids. Then take out the solids, and you'll know what to find."

I heard him hang up.

I burst through the door and sat down at the table, "GIVE ME A DRINK!" I said angrily to the bartender, "Now!"

The bartender half-smiled, "Sure you need another one?"

I reached out and grabbed his shirt and pulled him really close to me, "Give me a drink or I'll cause a riot. Trust me, I know how to cause those."

The bartender now showed a full smile, "Of course." he disappeared behind the counter, then came up with a cup and set it in front of me.

I picked up the cup and did exactly as the voice had told me.

The only solid in there was a piece of ice.

I squeezed the ice cube so hard it melted in my hand instantly.

I threw out my phone, "CALL YOU SON OF A-"

The phone rang. I answered, "HELLO!?"

It was the voice, "Hello... do you know what you must find?"


"Shut up and listen. I don't want you to find me anything. At all."


"LISTEN! All I want, is for you to suffer like I did."

"What are you blabbering about now you-"

"I'm going to kill your wife, then your sister, and then your brother. And then finally, you."

I heard the sound of a gun again and screamed, "NO!"

I heard a gunshot, "NO! Sharan?! SHARAN!"

The voice laughed, "She's gone."


"Wait." the voice said.

I heard the sound of a gun again, "NO! NO NO!" I screamed, feeling helpless.

I fell to my knees and began to sob.

I heard another gunshot, "MOM!"

Another one, "DIANE!"

And one last loud one, "JAKE!"

I stood there for a moment, completely taken over by grief, "I'M GOING TO KILL YOU! I'M GOING TO SLAUGHTER YOU!"

Then I heard another sound, it was the sound of a gun, but not the one I had heard previously. It sounded like a bigger gun.

"Ever heard of a sniper?" the voice said, practically reading my thoughts.

I gasped.

Suddenly, everything went black, as I heard the sound of a gunshot.

The voice laughed...

The End
