Pistols & Pain (Book 1)

I watched the woman I loved stand in front of me, with a gun pulled out on me and the trigger pulled. I silently prayed as I stepped to her, letting the barrel of the gun sit in the middle of my chest as the rain came down over both of our bodies. She was crying and I wanted to take her pain away. I wasn’t scared that she’d shoot me or that I’d die right here right now at this present moment, by the hands of the woman that carried my child. I just knew that for her to be here like this meant that she needed to let it out.

POW! I closed my eyes and opened my heart, as I heard the gun go off. I opened my eyes and she was standing there in a shocked-like state. I looked over my body, but there wasn’t a bullet in me. I looked in the house and there was a hole in my wall. Damn, her aim was terrible, but I was glad it wasn’t me that had gotten hit.

“Oh my god, Marco, I’m so sorry baby” she pleaded as she was looking over me, dropping to her knees. I fell right there with her.

“Heavenly Father;

We come to you tonight to ask for forgiveness right now. This young lady is lost and I ask that you cast your spirits around her and hold her close. Whatever this demon is that’s chasing her, we ask that you remove it from her mind, body, soul, and spirit. Keep her safe as she takes forth another step in this journey of life. Hold her near your cross, as she prepares for an even greater challenge and that’s motherhood. Heal her Father and I thank you for blessing me with this woman. You brought us together for a greater purpose and, whatever it is, just know Father that I am ready. Bestow your blessings upon her, as well as your blood.

In your name I pray, Amen”
