Malachi “Ky” Haworth was Chief Witness for the Prosecution. He’d witnessed was a high-profile assassination. Left unprotected, he would have been dead in no time.

The Final Night

“Will I be able to eat soon?” Ky asked his bodyguard.
“What do you want?” Asked bodyguard Phil Cooper.

“Name it.”

“Steak ‘n’ potatoes, asparagus, Texas toast. And can I have a couple of beers?”

After dinner, Ky sat with his shirt off, playing Solitaire..

His wife Emily was home; she had her own guard. She was watching Seinfeld, when the phone rang.

“Just out, this word from the Newman Federal Building downtown. An explosion has severely damaged the upper half of the building. At least a dozen persons are presumed dead. Stay tuned for further updates.”
