Maybe a bit freaky, but not terrible.
And because I'm nitpicky...
"He was shaking mightilly his eyes were wide with terror, and he looked ready to run. After all, sometimes politicians killed the messenger that brought bad news. I had killed a couple myself."
'mightilly,' is spelled wrong. Only need one 'l.' Also, you need a comma after 'mightily,' and then get rid of the 'were.' I really liked the last sentence here. Gives the story a nice bit of humor.
Great job. I guess this is a series type thing, but you do a nice job of conveying the characters.
