Indiscriminate (A flash fiction bit of writing, originally meant to stand alone.)
Take a look at the following excerpt…
“All said and done, I don’t discriminate. I kill whoever the fuck I feel like.
Sometimes it takes time, planning, stalking.
Other times, it happens at the drop of a hat.
Plus, once I got a chance to look over her still-warm corpse, I noticed that bitch looked a lot like my ex; she got what was coming to her.”
Thesis + Antithesis = Dissonance
There’s dissonance in every different situation, set of options, desire, compulsion, and state of existence. The question is, what kind of choice do you make? I say it depends on what you want more, and on how far ahead your looking for motivation to make your decisions in the present. In essence, it boils down to desire.

Instinct comes into play for the perpetrator, in deciding the side-street was a good enough place to act on his impulses. He trusts his gut, and he’s bold. Though he doesn’t want to get caught, he’s also not restricted by a fear of it. To him, it’s more important to act on his urge, and to figure out if he can get away with it and – if so – how best to go about it. It’s really as simple as that.
