THE DARKNESS CAME SLOWLY AND PAINFULLY, BURNING ITS way in from the corners until it consumed everything. “I’ve shot Dr. Brown,” he said. “And I have come to shoot you.”
While the lawyer scrambled to hide under his wife’s desk, Margaret stood up and confronted the intruder.“You can’t shoot him,” she said firmly. “You’ll have to shoot me first.”
For an instant everything stopped.
Oshuk looked at the woman, and she returned his gaze, unblinking. Then he lowered the gun. He was suddenly very meek and calm.
“No, I can’t shoot you, Mrs. Regan,” he said.
With that, Oshuk broke open the weapon, took out the spent cartridge which had been used against Dr. Brown,and dumped out five more unfired rounds onto Margaret Regan’s desk.
“You’re saved,” he told Oswold. “This woman has saved you.”
Oshuk sat down and talked quietly with Margaret until the police arrived to arrest him. He talked to her about the problems with his eyes. #vsco #familyhistory #moosejaw
