So you want to know what happened? Ok, I’ll tell you. Tonight was the homecoming dance. I went, I danced. Happy? (Beat) Oh you want to know about the murder? Ok fine. I came home to find out my boyfriend was brutally murdered. It’s a funny thing you know? Death. My boyfriend was a good guy. He was captain of the football team, straight A student, debate team. You name it, he did it. Maybe a little too much. You’re not really buying this are you? All right then, tonight I came back from the dance to find my boyfriend with three drunken cheerleaders, one who might have possibly been a bleacher bound stoner succubus, and Let’s just say I wasn’t happy. So I went into his parents’ room and I took the handgun out of the drawer and BAM!! I shot him right in the chest. He was still moving. But then in the corner of my eye was a big shiny butcher’s knife that his mom uses to make those nifty Sunday night dinners. It was so beautiful. So I took it…. and I stabbed him seven times in the back over and over again until finally he was dead. Why would a seemingly innocent girl do such a terrible inhumane thing such as that? Oh I’ll tell you why…..
