The client wanted Dan dead, and he was willing to pay for it.
Rejoice managed to get me into Dan’s therapy group.
My brief conversation with him quickly revealed that he was emotionally fragile, easily led and very suggestable. It was easy to wear away the last remnants of his meager defenses and convince him that the only solution to his miserable life was to ‘off’ himself.
Worked as planned. The client was pleased.
Wait! Gordon says Dan’s alive! How’d that happen?
Rejoice, we got the wrong ‘Dan’! How awful! It means we’ll have to give back the hit money.
