Disclaimer: Just a historical fanfiction that I decided to write after watching National Geographic Channel’s “Killing Kennedy” last Friday night and being inspired by Will Rothhaar and Michelle Trachtenberg’s acting as Lee Harvey and Marina Oswald. This is a fanFICTION, I am not trying to say that this is really what happened with the whole JFK assassination conspiracy, this is just a little “what if” fic idea that I thought might make a good story. As usual, anything recognizable isn’t mine and all questions and feedback can be directed to my ask box.
Chapter 1: Foolish Actions
He had seen the gun before it had fired. Seen the gun and knew he’d never reach his trial, never be read his sentence, never be able to explain to Marina why he had done what he did, or tell his children not to make the same mistakes their father had.
Jack Ruby’s gun fired and Oswald heard the shot, felt the sudden pain in his abdomen and recollected what he’d learned in his Army days: that a gut wound is almost always fatal. Yet still even as he fell Oswald found himself feeling for his stomach, placing his hands over the slick, torn spot in his sweater where all his pain seemed condensed, and applying all the pressure his hands could allow. It was a foolish thing, really, a cowardly act unlike the young Louisianan to make, for even as he knew he was dying he still resisted.
