I sat across from the pub, playing my flute, waiting. A poor woman threw coins into my hat; I wanted to pay her back a hundred-fold.

He staggered out of the pub, he who had driven my sister to suicide and moved on to torment another. How many others wanted revenge on this scumbag but had neither courage nor means?

He reached my side of the street. Barely missing a note, I swapped my flute for the poisoned dart bamboo and blew with all my might. He fell.

I finished the tune and walked away, tapping my white stick.
