Day 12: Greed

He waited until dark. It took him weeks to get this information, and he wasn’t about to let this pass up. He had to give up a lot, but that was okay. He would have it all now. It was like a disease. Even after this event, he knew he wouldn’t stop. His mind would constantly go back to the thrill of beating someone within an inch of their life, threatening to take out a whole family, promising to give them half. All for just a little bit of information. As he used the key under the mat he knew he didn’t have to worry. They were on family vacation. His hands wrapped around the priceless statue, he knew it wasn’t that priceless. He had six more just like it hidden in his house. But he couldn’t help himself. He just had to have it.
