Inlämningsuppgift 5 Tobias Wolff - "Bullet in the Brain"

Storyboard Text

  • The man with the pistol walked over to Anders. He poked the weapon into Anders' gut. The man's left eyelid kept twitching. He breathed out a piercing, ammoniac smell. Anders was beginning to develope a sense of unease.
  • You like me, bright boy?
  • Then stop looking at me.
  • No.
  • The ceiling was crowded with various dramas, but the one that caught Anders' eye was Zeus and Europa--portrayed, in this rendition, as a bull ogling a cow.
  • What's so funny, bright boy?
  • Fuck with me again, your history. Capiche?
  • Nothing.
  • Anders burst out laughing, covering his mouth with both hands and said,
  • I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
  • Capiche--oh, God, capiche.
  • The man stuck the pistol under Anders' chin and pushed it upwards until Anders was looking at the ceiling.
  • BANG!
  • The bull wore a smirk and his eyebrows were arched. If there'd been a bubble coming out of his mouth, it would have said, "Hubba hubba."
  • And at that the man with the pistol raised the pistol and shot Anders right in the head.
  • The bullet smashed Anders' skull and ploughed through his brain and excited behind his right ear, scattering shards of bone into the cerebral cortex, the corpus callosum, back toward the basal ganglia, and down into the thalamus.
  • Once in the brain, that is, the bullet came under the mediation of brain time , which gave Anders plenty of leisure to contemplate the scene that, in a phrase he would have abhorred, "passed before his eyes."
