The ping echoed in the darkness. The man rolled over, pawing for his mobile on the nightstand.

‘Come to Dallas. Shoot Oswald. Big $’

Past due rent. Bare refrigerator. He sighed, got dressed. He stuffed what he needed in the backpack, leaving the Nikon on the dining room table.

History, misunderstood.
