Bullet Hole

One day while I was in the break room at work I decided to pull up the blinds to see what the weather looked like. I ended up finding a bullet hole from a failed robbery attempt. 

I always wondered why I could hear the traffic from outside so well. 

I have never once gone to work afraid, but I have to admit it was sobering to see it. The fracture stretching over the glass just above my head. The person who left it is most likely still locked up. No one was hurt, no money was taken. All they left was the bullet hole.

  1. I wonder how long ago it was left there? I trust it was well before your tenure!

    Upon closer examination, the webbed hole with its pure white nucleus looks like a stylised comet as portrayed in Middle Age iconography, and the smoking 'trail' of the clouds beyond, its' burnt off energy as it ignites in the atmosphere.
