Abstract of Story: -
It was winter in London, calm clear skies, rooftops layered over by snow and vehicles crawling along the road, hoping to get to their destination without crashing into a tree. It was a typical Monday morning and for Ray, the start of a long dreary day.

With almost two years' bus driving experience under his belt, Ray was a skilled driver and that was apart from the other talents he possessed which would come in handy during the next couple of months. Because he was assessing the weather, Ray failed to notice his arch-enemy sitting in his office with a stick up his ass. The guy was named Dave. Ray tried hard not to cross his path because he was the type of person who nit-picked everything that was out of place. It was a shame, the garage used to be a nice place to work but it had became a war zone with mundane infractions the biggest weapon. Dave loved rules and he followed them to the letter.

A smooth start to the day always determined how the rest of Ray's shift was to go. He could relax or put up his defenses, depending on how things went within the first ten minutes. Being met by a six-foot obese man in a suit was not a good sign.

Abstract of Story: -
One feels a sense of power when they drive a twelve-tone vehicle around the streets of London. Ray knew that if he decided to hit one of those lowlifes on the road, he would escape unharmed. But he couldn't do that. He was a professional and today was no different.

Day in and day out he would go to work, do his rounds and return home to his empty house with a fish tank in the corner with his new addition to the pack, the angel fish he collected from Dave's house.

When he cracked open the fish food and sprinkled the flakes over the surface of the water, he thought back to the night he invaded the man's house.

Now, that was a man who deserved what he got and Ray loved dressing for the occasion. But once that initial adrenaline rush had left his body, he was alone once again with his trusty clown uniform and red plastic nose. It was a routine for him to dress for the kill, not to disguise himself from the authorities, but to demonstrate that a clown's appearance was more than just funny jokes and smart stunts. The clown was the ultimate terror and he loved the novelty. He wanted to put the red back into the image of a clown. He found it thrilling, even when he was a young man terrified of clowns. One could almost think he was a clown inside, waiting to come out.

However, no matter how he tried to display the funny side of his actions, no one laughed when he strangled the life out of Dave. It was a disappointing end to a carefully thought up plan. But it was devised in a hurry. Nothing funny comes from rushing.
