‘Be careful around the mall today’ , the stranger warned Bernadette.
‘I have never received such a friendly advice from a stranger before. Thank you’, Bernadette chuckled.
Bernadette was now cursing the stranger for having dampened her upbeat day. She was in a fix.
‘Should I call the police?’, she thought and turned back to check if he was still there. The know-it-all stranger was feeding the pigeons.
Relieved, she went about with her crammed weekend shopping schedule.
The mall was a carnival with play tattoo booths and fun rides for kids. Enthralled audiences swayed to the popular band performing at the center stage.
‘I love the life here!’ Bernadette exclaimed.
Humming a popular tune, as she was preparing to exit, the blood- stained white marble circle grabbed her attention.
The clamour pulled her back inside the mall. The guitarist had been shot dead.
The message bandaged to the marble circle read ‘ drug dealer and predator, cleansed off . ‘
