Love, Murder and Media Hype – A Twisted Tale of Two Natural Born Killers.
Watch the original version of Natural Born Killers
The media is obsessed with them. They are the ultimate outlaws, the Bonnie and Clyde of the modern age. Mickey and Mallory Knox, lovers and killers, fugitives and celebrities – they have become a symbol of everything that is wrong with our society.
But who are they really? How did they become the monsters that everyone loves to hate? In this novel, we journey back to the beginning, to the traumas and tragedies that shaped their lives and led them down the path of destruction.
Chapter One: Childhood Traumas
Mickey Knox was born into a world of violence. His father, a Vietnam veteran, suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and took out his rage on his family. Mickey’s mother was a drug addict who would disappear for days on end, leaving her children to fend for themselves.
Mickey was the youngest of four siblings, but he was the one who suffered the most. His father would beat him mercilessly, leaving him with bruises and broken bones. His mother would barely acknowledge his existence, too high on drugs to care.
Mallory Wilson had a different kind of trauma. Her father was a charismatic preacher who led a cult-like church. He believed that he was God’s chosen messenger and that his followers were his loyal subjects. Mallory was one of those subjects.
Growing up, Mallory was brainwashed into believing that her father was infallible, that his words were gospel. She was taught to obey him without question, to follow his every command. But behind closed doors, her father was a monster – he would subject his daughter to unspeakable acts of abuse and sexual assault.
Both Mickey and Mallory were victims of their childhoods, trapped in a world of pain and suffering. It was no surprise that they found each other, two lost souls searching for a way out. They met at a diner, where Mallory was working as a waitress. Mickey was immediately drawn to her – she had a toughness and a defiance that spoke to him.
They started dating, and soon, they were inseparable. They moved in together, sharing a small apartment on the outskirts of town. They were both damaged, but they found comfort in each other’s arms.
One day, Mickey snapped. His father had beaten him once too often, and he decided that he had had enough. He went to his father’s house, armed with a baseball bat, and beat him to death.
Mickey thought that he would feel some sense of release, some sense of satisfaction. But all he felt was emptiness. Mallory understood – she had been through her own trauma, and she knew how it felt to carry the weight of the past.
Together, they decided to hit the road, to leave their old lives behind and start anew. But they didn’t want to just run away – they wanted to take revenge on the world that had hurt them so much.
Their first victim was a gas station attendant. They shot him without a second thought, and the rush of adrenaline was exhilarating. They continued on their killing spree, picking their victims at random.
The media picked up on their story, and soon, they were front-page news. Mickey and Mallory became the ultimate anti-heroes, celebrated by all those who felt oppressed and powerless.
But the couple’s love affair with murder was just getting started. They would go on to kill dozens more, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. And the world would never be the same.
Chapter 2: A Love Like No Other
Mickey and Mallory Knox had finally found each other, two kindred spirits who had been battered and bruised by life. They saw themselves in each other’s pain, and together they found a way to escape their troubled pasts. But what started as a journey of self-discovery soon turned into something much darker.
Mickey and Mallory’s love was intense and all-consuming. They were inseparable, and their connection grew stronger with each passing day. But as they basked in their newfound happiness, something sinister began to stir within them. They felt a seething anger, a burning rage that they couldn’t control. And before they knew it, that anger began to boil over.
It started small, a petty argument with a convenience store clerk that turned violent. But that was just the beginning. As they drove away from the store, the adrenaline pumping through their veins, they knew they had found something they had been missing. The rush of power, the feeling of being in control – it was intoxicating.
They spent the next few days on the road, killing anyone who crossed their path. They targeted anyone who represented the world that had hurt them, taking out their anger on unsuspecting victims. They reveled in the chaos they created, the headlines they made. They were unstoppable.
The media caught wind of their story, and the coverage only fueled their fire. They were no longer just two lovers on a killing spree, they were legends. They were the stuff of nightmares, the bogeymen that parents warned their children about. And they loved it.
Mickey and Mallory’s spree continued for months, and they became famous faces on the news. People were both fascinated and horrified by them, and they developed a cult following. Groups of people would gather outside the courthouses where they were scheduled to appear, chanting their names and holding up signs.
The couple reveled in their infamy, relishing in the attention they received. They were no longer the damaged children that society had thrown away – they were heroes. The world had finally taken notice of them, and they were going to make sure they never forgot.
As they continued their killing spree, they grew closer to each other. They became each other’s lifelines, the only ones who truly understood the darkness that lurked within them. They shared everything, their fears, their hopes, their twisted dreams. They were a match made in hell, and they knew it.
But even as they reveled in their success, a part of them began to wonder if it was all worth it. As they lay in bed at night, the weight of what they had done would start to press down on them. They would look into each other’s eyes, searching for some kind of absolution, but they knew deep down that they would never find it.
Their love had given them power, but it had also made them untouchable. They were no longer bound by the rules of society, free to do as they pleased. But as they looked into the abyss they had created, they wondered if they had gone too far. If there was any turning back.
Mickey and Mallory’s love was like no other, a twisted romance that grew out of their shared pain. It was the only thing that kept them going, the only thing that made their lives worth living. But as they continued down their path of destruction, they realized that it might not be enough. That their love, like everything else in their lives, was destined to burn out in a blaze of glory.
Chapter 3: The Chase Begins
Mickey and Mallory’s killing spree continued, leaving a trail of death and destruction behind them. The authorities were hot on their heels, but the couple remained one step ahead, using their wits and cunning to evade capture.
As they drove through the night, Mickey and Mallory knew they needed to keep moving. They had already left several bodies behind them and knew that they couldn’t afford to slow down. But their adrenaline-fueled high was starting to wear off, and the reality of what they had done began to sink in.
Mickey turned to Mallory, his face etched with worry. “Do you think they’ll catch us?” he asked, his voice tense.
Mallory shrugged. “Maybe. But we won’t make it easy for them.”
They had no idea where they were going, but they knew they had to stay on the move. They had ditched their car and were now on foot, making their way through the back streets and alleys of the city. They were cold, hungry, and exhausted, but they knew they couldn’t stop.
As they walked, Mallory noticed a man following them. She nudged Mickey and nodded in the man’s direction, and they both quickened their pace. The man followed them for several blocks before they finally lost him.
They found a rundown motel on the outskirts of town and booked a room. They knew they needed to lay low for a while, but they were both restless and anxious. The room was small and dingy, and the walls were paper-thin. They could hear every noise from the rooms next door.
Mickey paced back and forth, his mind racing. “We’ve got to keep moving,” he said. “We can’t stay here.”
Mallory sat on the edge of the bed, her eyes fixed on the door. “We need a plan,” she said. “We can’t just keep running forever.”
They spent the next few hours discussing their options. They knew they couldn’t keep killing people forever, and they also knew that they couldn’t just turn themselves in. They were in too deep.
“We need to get out of the city,” Mallory said. “Maybe we can find someplace where we can hide out for a while.”
Mickey nodded slowly. “Okay. But how do we do that? We don’t have any money, and we can’t just hitchhike our way out of town.”
They both fell silent, lost in thought. They knew they had to come up with a plan, and fast.
The next morning, they left the motel and walked to the outskirts of town. They saw a truck parked by the side of the road, and Mickey had an idea.
“We’ll steal that truck,” he said. “We can use it to get out of town.”
Mallory looked at him skeptically. “Are you sure that’s a good idea?”
Mickey grinned. “Trust me. It’s our only option.”
They waited until the owner of the truck was out of sight, then Mickey broke into it. He hotwired the ignition, and the truck roared to life. Mallory climbed into the passenger seat, and they drove away as fast as they could.
The stolen truck took them out of the city and onto the open road. They drove for miles, taking turns behind the wheel, never stopping for anything. They knew they were getting closer to their destination, but they also knew that they couldn’t keep this up forever.
As they drove, they saw a roadblock up ahead. It was manned by police officers, and they knew that they couldn’t just drive through it. They pulled over, and Mickey turned to Mallory.
“We’re going to have to abandon the truck,” he said. “We’ll have to continue on foot.”
Mallory nodded. “Okay. But where are we going?”
Mickey shrugged. “Anywhere that’s far away from here.”
They climbed out of the truck and started walking. They had no idea where they were headed, but they knew that they had to keep moving. They were fugitives now, forever on the run.
As they walked, Mallory took Mickey’s hand. “No matter what happens, we stick together,” she said. “Always.”
Mickey squeezed her hand. “Always.”
Chapter 4: A Twist in the Tale
The motel room was dimly lit as Mickey and Mallory sat huddled together on the bed. The television played in the background, the news anchor discussing their latest killing spree.
“We’re famous,” Mickey said, his eyes glued to the screen.
Mallory nodded, a small smile playing on her lips. They had become overnight sensations, their names splashed across headlines and news articles. They knew they were in deep trouble, but the attention was intoxicating.
As they sat there, reveling in their newfound fame, the phone rang. Mickey picked it up, his eyes narrowing as he listened to the voice on the other end.
“Who was it?” Mallory asked, sensing the tension in the air.
Mickey hung up the phone and turned to her. “We’ve got company.”
It turned out that the person on the other end was a fellow criminal who wanted to join in their killing spree. He was a man named Johnny Vinyard, and he had been watching their story unfold on the news. He had always dreamed of being a serial killer, and he saw Mickey and Mallory as the perfect partners in crime.
At first, the couple was hesitant. They had never worked with anyone else before, and they weren’t sure they could trust Johnny. But he was persistent, and eventually, they agreed to meet him.
They arranged to meet at an abandoned warehouse on the outskirts of town. Mickey and Mallory arrived first, scanning the area for any signs of trouble. They didn’t have to wait long before Johnny pulled up in an old beat-up car.
“Hey, there!” Johnny called out, waving enthusiastically.
Mickey and Mallory exchanged a look before walking over to him. They were both on edge, unsure of what to expect.
“Nice to finally meet you guys,” Johnny said, extending his hand.
Mickey shook it, studying Johnny closely. He was younger than them, with shaggy brown hair and a scraggly beard. He wore a leather jacket and ripped jeans, giving off a rebellious vibe.
“So, what’s the plan?” Johnny asked, rubbing his hands together.
Mickey hesitated before speaking. “We’re going to hit up a convenience store on the other side of town. You in?”
Johnny grinned, nodding eagerly. “Hell yeah, let’s do this.”
The three of them piled into Johnny’s car, the excitement palpable. They drove in silence, the only sounds coming from the radio playing loudly in the background.
As they pulled up to the convenience store, Mickey and Mallory quickly scoped out the area. They knew exactly what they were doing, having done this countless times before. They walked into the store, their guns at the ready.
The cashier tried to run, but Johnny caught her and brought her back. They began to demand money from her, but she refused. She screamed for help, which caught the attention of the security guard.
Suddenly, the entire situation escalated. The security guard pulled out his gun, and Mickey and Mallory immediately took cover behind the shelves. Johnny, on the other hand, made a run for it. The security guard chased after him, guns drawn.
Mickey and Mallory could hear the shouting and gunfire from the other side of the store. They knew they had to act fast if they wanted to get out alive. As they made their way towards the back exit, they saw Johnny running towards them.
“Go, go, go!” Mickey yelled, pulling Johnny out the door.
They jumped into the car and sped off, the adrenaline pumping through their veins. It wasn’t until they were back at the motel room that they realized that something was off.
“Where’s the money?” Mickey asked, turning to Johnny.
Johnny shifted in his seat, avoiding their gaze. “I, uh, I didn’t get any.”
Mickey and Mallory’s eyes widened in disbelief. They had risked their lives for nothing. They could feel the anger boiling up inside of them.
“I trusted you,” Mickey growled, his voice low and dangerous.
Johnny tried to defend himself, but it was too late. He had betrayed them, and there was no going back. Mickey and Mallory knew they had no choice but to get rid of him.
They lured Johnny out of the motel room, telling him they had another score lined up. But as they made their way towards the abandoned warehouse, Mickey and Mallory turned on him. The gunfire echoed off the walls as they killed him, their hearts racing with a mix of fear and exhilaration.
As they made their way back to the motel, they both knew that they were in too deep. They couldn’t trust anyone, least of all each other. But they were addicted to the rush, unable to stop themselves from spiraling out of control. And with the authorities closing in, their time was running out.
Chapter 5: A Web of Lies
Mickey and Mallory’s killing spree had become the talk of the town. Every new murder they committed only fueled the media’s interest in their case. The authorities knew they had to catch the couple before they could do any more damage, but Mickey and Mallory were always one step ahead.
Meanwhile, the undercover detective who had infiltrated their group was struggling to maintain his cover. He had to play the part of a ruthless criminal, but he was disgusted by the senseless violence that Mickey and Mallory were inflicting on innocent people. He knew he had to act fast before he lost himself in their world of madness.
As Mickey and Mallory continued their spree across the country, they attracted the attention of other criminals who wanted to join them. These new recruits were drawn to the power and notoriety that Mickey and Mallory had achieved, but they had no idea what they were getting themselves into.
One of these recruits was a man named Jack, a hardened criminal who had been on the run for years. Jack was intrigued by the idea of working with Mickey and Mallory, and he quickly became a close confidant of the couple.
At first, Jack seemed like the perfect addition to their team. He was ruthless and cunning, and he had a knack for getting out of sticky situations. But as time went on, Mickey and Mallory began to suspect that Jack was not who he claimed to be. They thought he might be an undercover cop, but they couldn’t be sure.
Their suspicions turned into paranoia, and soon, Mickey and Mallory were turning on each other. They each believed that the other was the one who had let Jack into their circle. The tension between them grew, and they began to distance themselves from each other.
Meanwhile, the detective was struggling to maintain his cover. He had grown close to Mickey and Mallory, and he knew that he could not bring them in without incriminating himself. He tried to convince them to stop their killing spree, but they were too far gone.
One night, as they were planning their next move, Jack betrayed them. He revealed that he was indeed an undercover cop, and he had been gathering evidence against them for months. Mickey and Mallory were stunned. They had trusted Jack completely, and now he had turned on them.
The couple fled, but the police were hot on their trail. They were chased across the country, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. Mickey and Mallory were determined to go out on their own terms, but the detective knew he had to stop them before they could do any more damage.
Finally, after weeks of chasing them, the authorities caught up with Mickey and Mallory. It was a dramatic standoff, with guns blazing and the couple fighting to the bitter end. In the chaos, the detective was shot, but he managed to get off one final shot that took down Mickey.
Mallory was caught and taken into custody, but she was never the same. The media had glorified her and Mickey as legends, but for Mallory, the reality of their actions had finally sunk in. She was left to grapple with the consequences of her actions, haunted by the ghosts of her past and the memories of the man she had loved.
Chapter 6: The Breaking Point
As Mickey and Mallory Knox continue their killing spree, their relationship begins to show signs of strain. They have become inseparable partners in crime, but the constant violence and danger are taking their toll. Mallory is starting to feel trapped, and Mickey is becoming increasingly paranoid about their future. They both struggle to trust one another, and their love is put to the test.
Mallory is feeling more and more disillusioned with their lifestyle. She is tired of the constant danger and feels like she has no control over her life. She is also growing increasingly concerned about their relationship. As close as she and Mickey are, she is starting to wonder if they are truly meant to be together. She loves him deeply, but the killing spree is beginning to feel like a prison.
Mickey, on the other hand, is becoming increasingly paranoid. He is convinced that the authorities are closing in on them, and that they will soon be caught. He is also starting to have doubts about Mallory’s loyalty. He wonders if she would turn on him if it meant saving herself. He is so consumed by these thoughts that he begins to lash out at her, accusing her of being unfaithful and questioning her commitment to their cause.
Their relationship reaches breaking point when they encounter a young couple who remind Mallory of herself and Mickey. The couple is happy and in love, and Mallory realizes that what she and Mickey have is not normal or healthy. She starts to question everything – their lifestyle, their love, their future. She wonders if there is a way out of their situation.
Mickey, meanwhile, is growing more and more paranoid. He is convinced that the young couple they met will turn them in to the police. He takes matters into his own hands and goes after them, killing them both in cold blood. Mallory is horrified by the violence, and realizes that she cannot continue down this path with Mickey. She tries to reason with him, but he is too far gone.
In a dramatic confrontation, Mallory tells Mickey that she wants out. She tells him that she loves him, but that she cannot continue to live like this. She wants to start over, to live a normal life. Mickey is devastated by the revelation. He feels like Mallory is abandoning him, and that their love was not enough to save them.
In the end, Mickey and Mallory go their separate ways. Mallory turns herself into the authorities and is sentenced to life in prison. Mickey continues his killing spree alone, but without Mallory by his side, he is a shadow of his former self. He is eventually caught and sentenced to death.
The chapter ends with a sense of loss and regret. Mickey and Mallory’s love was powerful, but it was not enough to save them from themselves. They were two damaged souls, drawn together by their shared traumas, but ultimately unable to overcome them. The reader is left to wonder what might have been if they had chosen a different path.
Chapter 7: The Final Showdown
The sound of sirens echoes through the air as the police close in on Mickey and Mallory. The couple is holed up in an abandoned building, surrounded by law enforcement from all sides. They know there is nowhere left to run.
Mickey and Mallory stand back to back, their guns in hand. They have vowed to go down fighting, and they are ready for whatever comes their way. The adrenaline is pumping through their veins, and they are both on edge, waiting for the inevitable.
The SWAT team bursts through the door, and the showdown begins. Mickey and Mallory are outnumbered, but they are not backing down. They take aim at the advancing officers and start firing. The air is thick with smoke and gunpowder as the battle rages on.
Mickey takes a bullet to the shoulder, and Mallory screams in agony. She knows that they are running out of time, that they cannot keep up this fight forever. She turns to Mickey and sees the pain etched on his face. She knows that he is hurting, but she also knows that he will never give up.
The police continue to close in on them, their weapons raised. Mickey and Mallory are surrounded, their backs against the wall. They have no escape and nowhere to go.
Mickey and Mallory look at each other, and a sense of calm washes over them. They know what they have to do. They raise their guns to their heads and look each other in the eye. They pull the triggers simultaneously, and the bullets fly.
As the gunfire subsides, the room falls silent. The SWAT team cautiously approaches and finds Mickey and Mallory lying motionless on the ground. They are both dead, their bodies riddled with bullets.
The media descends on the scene, hungry for the next headline. They glorify Mickey and Mallory, turning them into legends. They talk about their love story and paint them as tragic heroes. But for the families of the victims, there is no glory. There is only pain and heartache.
The aftermath of the shooting is messy and complicated. The media frenzy dies down, and the families of the victims try to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. The authorities are left to sift through the rubble of Mickey and Mallory’s twisted relationship, trying to make sense of the chaos.
As time passes, the memories of Mickey and Mallory fade. They become nothing more than a footnote in history, a cautionary tale that no one wants to remember. But for those who were there, who witnessed the final showdown, the memories will never fade. They will always be haunted by the sound of gunfire and the tragedy of a love that ended in bloodshed.
Chapter 8: The Aftermath
The sun was setting over the desert as the final standoff between Mickey and Mallory Knox and the authorities reached its climax. For what felt like an eternity, the couple had been exchanging gunfire with the SWAT team that had been dispatched to apprehend them. But as the dust settled and the smoke cleared, only one thing was certain: the reign of the Natural Born Killers was finally over.
The world watched in horror as the body count climbed ever higher. Mallory’s once-beautiful face was now bloodied and bruised, and Mickey was riddled with bullet holes. But even in the face of certain death, the couple refused to surrender.
With one final shot, Mallory pulled the trigger, ending her own life and leaving Mickey alone in the world. As he lay dying on the hot desert sand, memories of their journey together flashed before his eyes. The pain of their childhoods, the thrill of their first kill, the rush of adrenaline as the media glorified their actions. It all seemed like a distant memory now.
The authorities rushed in to apprehend Mickey, but it was too late. He succumbed to his injuries and passed away, leaving nothing behind but a legacy of violence and destruction.
In the days and weeks that followed, the world struggled to come to terms with what had happened. The media, always eager to profit from tragedy, glorified the couple as anti-heroes, romanticizing their story and turning them into legends.
But for those who had lost loved ones at the hands of Mickey and Mallory, there was no romance to be found. Only pain, grief, and a profound sense of loss.
As the months passed, the world moved on, but the scars left by the Natural Born Killers would never fully heal. The trauma inflicted upon their victims and their families would be felt for years to come.
In the end, the legacy of Mickey and Mallory Knox was one of tragedy and darkness. A cautionary tale of two damaged souls who found each other, and in doing so, unleashed a wave of destruction upon the world.
And as time passed, the world would remember them not as legends, but as the killers they truly were.

Thank you kindly.
We’re always looking for more like-minded individuals to join our cause.
Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got a whole list of people we’d like to see taken care of.

INT. A SHADY BAR – NIGHT
Mickey and Mallory enter the dimly lit bar, their eyes scanning the room for any potential targets. They make their way to the bar and order drinks, eyeing the patrons around them.
As they sit sipping their drinks, a disheveled man approaches them.
Hey, you guys look like you know how to have a good time. Mind if I join you?
Mickey and Mallory exchange a glance, sizing up the man.
Sure, why not?
The three of them continue to drink and chat, the man regaling them with tales of his own criminal exploits. But as the night wears on, Mickey and Mallory start to suspect that something isn’t quite right.
So, what’s your story? Why are you really here?
The man’s demeanor shifts, and he reaches for his phone.
I was hoping you’d ask. You see, I’m an undercover cop.
Mickey and Mallory jump to their feet, their guns at the ready.
You son of a bitch!
Whoa, easy now. I’m not here to arrest you. I want to help you take down a bigger fish.
Mickey and Mallory exchange a look of disbelief.
What are you talking about?
There’s a bigger player in town. Someone who’s been watching your every move. He wants to meet you.
Mickey and Mallory are intrigued, but wary.
What’s his name?
He goes by the name of Jack. He’s the one pulling all the strings.
Mickey and Mallory nod, their curiosity piqued.
All right, we’ll meet this Jack. But if this is a trap, we won’t hesitate to take you down.
I understand. But trust me, Jack is the real deal. He’ll change the game for you.
Mickey and Mallory exchange a look, their thoughts unreadable.
We’re in. But we’ll be watching our backs.
The scene ends with the trio exiting the bar, their fate uncertain as they head towards their meeting with Jack.
Detective Jack Crawford
Setting: Deserted motel on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona
Mickey: “I can’t trust you anymore, Mallory. You’ve been keeping secrets from me. You’re not the girl I fell in love with.”
Mallory: “I did it for us, Mickey. I did it to keep us safe.”
Detective Crawford: “You two are monsters. You’ve destroyed countless lives, and you deserve to pay for what you’ve done.”
Mickey and Mallory Knox have reached their breaking point. Trust issues have surfaced, and their love is being tested like never before. They’re holed up in a deserted motel on the outskirts of Tucson, Arizona, unsure of what to do next.
Mickey sits on the edge of the bed, holding a gun in his hand. Mallory paces back and forth, her eyes darting around the room.
Mickey: “I can’t trust you anymore, Mallory. You’ve been keeping secrets from me. You’re not the girl I fell in love with.”
Mallory stops pacing and looks at Mickey. Tears start to well up in her eyes.
Mallory: “I did it for us, Mickey. I did it to keep us safe.”
Mickey: “What did you do?”
Mallory takes a deep breath and tells Mickey everything. She had contacted a lawyer and made a deal with the authorities. In exchange for their safety, she promised to turn on Mickey and give them all the evidence they needed to put him away for life.
Mickey’s face turns red with anger.
Mickey: “How could you do this, Mallory? How could you betray me like that?”
Mallory: “I had to do something, Mickey. I couldn’t keep living like this. I couldn’t keep looking over my shoulder, wondering when the police were going to catch us. I had to try and save us.”
Mickey stands up, pointing the gun at Mallory.
Mickey: “You’re the reason we’re in this mess, Mallory. You’re the reason we’re going to die.”
Detective Jack Crawford bursts into the room, gun drawn.
Detective Crawford: “Police! Drop the weapon!”
Mickey turns to face Crawford, tears streaming down his face.
