He said he couldn’t believe that he had spent time with someone that would even think such things.
There isn’t a person alive that doesn’t have dark thoughts. Those thoughts may not be a murder mystery plot, but there are still all kinds of dark thoughts.
There is the guy down the street that lusts after the underage girls as they walk past his house. There’s the guy that sabotages his supervisor so that he fails a drug test. There’s the creep that fantasizes about his own daughter. The guy that will torch his house for the insurance money. There are lots of examples.
These are terrible thoughts, right?
But do we act on them? THAT is what separates us from the truly deranged individuals. Our actions.
My stories are just that, stories. I would no more act on them than I would jump off the Golden Gate Bridge.
Are you immune to the Dark Side? Do you have Dark Thoughts?
