“What were you doing there?”
“Jethro, please believe me…it is not as it seems.”
“Convince me, Duck.”
“I did kill him…but I did not murder him.”
“I was the Medic on call. They, and I am sure you know who they are, made me come in and examine the suspect.
Oh, Jethro, he had been tortured dreadfully. They asked me to revive him. To make sure he was fit….
He seemed unconscious, but then he opened his eyes and looked directly at me. And in a low voice, so low that they could not hear it, he asked me to kill him. He knew that he was ready to break…that he could not stand any more. I had the means …and I did. Right in front of them…oh, god…I killed him…”
“No Jethro… I killed him. I am ready to accept the consequences.”
