The Laptop

He laughed as loudly as he could.
He could not believe that everything had happened faultlessly.
He had spent hundreds of hours brooding over it; reading every kind of material he could find on internet; worrying that somehow he was bound to make a silly mistake and get caught.
But in the end it was nothing but a child’s play.
He looked at the burning dead body and laughed. 
His phone rang.
‘Hello, has it been done?’
‘What do you mean?’
‘You didn’t switch off the laptop. I could see and record everything.’
His hands trembled, his nightmare had come true.

  1. Oh, no one can plan a perfect murder, it seems. You always leave a trace, in this case, digital one! Good story!

  2. I think the caller is bluffing. Otherwise he wouldn't need to ask whether it had been done. Either way, things are not going smoothly.

    1. i read somewhere that hackers can switch on your laptop camera and see everything happening in your room. thanks for stopping by.

  3. I think someone will haunt him...
