The boiling liquid metal spun down the tube spiraling as if in a laboratory headed to a beaker, he danced around elated at his newest creation. He could hardly contain his excitement as the liquid metal picked up speed, twisting and turning as gravity became his new best friend.
Holding the black mask to his face he made sure the closed circuit camera would catch every moment of the action. Surely this would make him nationally famous. Nine times before and not a peep out of the national media. Sure it should have taken at least four or five to get the ball rolling but even after eight no one was talking about it.
Steam comes off the tubes as the liquid descends downward towards number ten. A woman about 20 years of age. Tied up and blind folded sat awaiting her fait. The tubes in front of her looking more like a science experiment then a means of ending a life. She couldn't know however as she never saw this contraption.
The crackling getting louder and louder, muffled groans from number 10 getting more frequent which only fueled his elation further. He dances and hops around the table and number ten watching as the liquid metal made its way faster down the tubes to a small opening pointed at her chest.
He freezes as he sees the liquid getting closer to the end, he moves out of the view of the camera so the real star of the show can have center stage. Off in the shadows he waits as the molten metal makes its last few turns at incredible speeds. He watches holding his black mask tightly to his face which is concealing a smile. The liquid finds it final destination and target.
Just as he planned, it happened just as he planned. Now for a quick call to a news crew. Surly this would make national news. His frustration has been growing since number six. Each one getting more creative. This had to be the one that pushed it over the edge and gave him the sweet relief of fame he so desired.
