Just another day at work.

He takes his usual perch at the park, a branch on some tree he’s grown fond of. Same kind of morning. Same old people to watch. One overdue soul to take.

He spots her, a wisp of life newly severed from its vessel, expired and collapsed face down on a bed of pink and purple flowers. Her favorites.

He abandons his tree, reappears beside her. Same old look of fear and confusion in her eyes, but she takes his hand anyway.

They are long gone when her body is discovered—

Just another day at work.
