“’What do you mean; you don’t think he was gay?’ I asked, interrupting. ‘Well, when we got back to my apartment, he took off all his clothes and I began to go down on him, but he made it clear he wasn’t a fag and stated that if I didn’t pay him the money I offered (to pose for pictures), he would kick my ass and take everything i had.’
‘Wow, Jeff, weren’t you you afraid?’ I said starting the second page of his confession. ‘No, not really, you see he had already drunk the potion of halcyon and I knew that within minutes he would be mine. After he fell asleep, I made love to him for hours. I enjoyed him so much that I kept him alive a little longer than usual. In the morning, I could tell by his breathing that he was coming out of his drug-induced state, so I began to strangle him; but the drug had worn off and as I choked him, he began to struggle with me. I panicked realizing that I was not strong enough to overcome him, so I grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the carotid artery.’”
