"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?"
"OF COURSE NOT YOU-"
"Shut up and listen. I don't want you to find me anything. At all."
"THEN WHY THE-"
"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."
"YOU LITTLE SON OF-"
"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.
Suddenly, everything went black, as I heard the sound of a gunshot.
The voice laughed...
