I should probably feel guilty for the sins I've committed. It occurred to me at least once that the road I was on was not the best. The drugs, the money, the killings, it was not considered normal in society; especially for someone as young as myself. But the second I had this reflection, I looked down at the naked redhead draped across my lap and forgot what I had even been thinking about.

I was not a good man. But I never claimed to be.

A monster, she and many others called me. It was easy to place that sort of label on someone such as myself. After a while, it stops being an insult and more of a factual statement. But if I really thought back to it, life wasn't always this way. I wasn't always this way. Pinpointing exactly where everything took a left turn was difficult to say, but in truth, I'm not sure I was ever destined to go a different path.

"Yes, darling."
