Plot

Mr. Logan Granfield had recently won $78,000,000 in a Mega Lottery and started by buying an extremely large mansion, a butler, and a $1,000 dollar a day hooker. He developed a delusional paranoia after winning it.

He was afraid the whole world wanted to steal his money. He then found his expensive artwork to be a thief as well. He shot an arrow at it with his expensive scope crossbow. As he attempted to pull it out, he received a fatal electric shock throughout his body and he died. How? When he shot his titanium arrow at the painting. It had made contact with the 220-volt powerline inside the wall. As he received the electrocution, it made its way to his heart and sent him into cardiac arrest.

Theodore: "I fear the master has expired."

Hooker: "Am I still going to get paid?"
