"Tool" - Scream, Billy Loomis (2020)



Heโ€™d spent ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ด searching for it.โฃ


Perfectly weighted. A smooth, black handle that fitted the form of his palm. A sleek curve that gave way to the sparkling, chrome blade. An edge sharp enough to slice through flesh like ๐™ข๐™š๐™ก๐™ฉ๐™š๐™™ ๐™—๐™ช๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง.โฃ


This โ€” this would work. One swipe, and heโ€™d gut his prey, insides slopping onto the checkerboard linoleum floor in gory ribbons. Another, and heโ€™d open her chest, expose her dying breaths to the tepid air of the kitchen. Perhaps a third would carve her throat, fatal gurgling splashing crimson across the countertops.โฃ


Of course, he wouldnโ€™t work alone. No, that would be ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ. Too easy to pin a motive to a lone killer, too easy to trace and track and catch. Instead, heโ€™d be accompanied by the gangly, clumsy fool of his affections โ€” his tall, mousey-haired accomplice. An idiot, no doubt, but ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ idiot. They had it planned meticulously, each twist and turn scripted with a ghoulish glee.โฃ


Distraction, diversion, chaseโ€ฆ and a ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜บ๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ.โฃ


Oh sweet Sidneyโ€ฆ She had ๐™ฃ๐™ค idea of her ๐™œ๐™ง๐™ž๐™ฏ๐™ฏ๐™ก๐™ฎ ๐™›๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š.
