"The Forensic tests have confirmed that the decomposed body found in the ravines is indeed of the renowned industrialist William Spencer. He was reported missing almost a year ago"
Danny turned off the TV and leaned back into his chair. A frown marred his usual good looks at the moment.
'There is no way they can prove it.' He told himself the thousandth time. He had made sure that William didn’t tell anyone about their hiking trip.
"It will be like our childhood. No cell phones, no work, no commitments. Just two brothers having fun!" Danny had made Will promise him.
His alibi for the day was rock solid. He had made sure of it.
Taking over his company looked like bailing a brother's widow out. What with all the phony debts.
Danny took out the old pocket watch from the table's drawer.
How he had hated William when their father had given it to him. Danny could still feel his nerves flare at the memory of forever being humiliated by his father. Old moron always took Will's side.
Snatching the watch from his twin's dead body was the best thing Danny had ever done. Well, next to killing him.
He had gone all the way down to take it from his broken body. The old thing had survived the enormous fall without a scratch, but somehow it was broken inside and nothing could make it work. Still, it was his trophy!
"Well, you are as dead as your master, aren’t you, stupid watch?"
The watch was stuck for last one year, showing the exact time when he had...
He smirked looking at it...
The Second hand of the watch moved without warning. It's sound echoing like a gunshot in the silence.
Danny froze as he felt the hair on his neck stand up...
A whisper... a voice so familiar... No it can't be!
