just finished rough stone rolling

joseph pulled the trigger six times into the hall, dropped the pistol on the floor, and sprang to the window. with one leg over the sill, he raised his arms in the masonic sign of distress. a ball from the doorway struck his hip, and shot from the outside entered his chest. another hit under the heart and a fourth his collarbone. he fell outward crying, "oh lord my god!" landing on his left side, he struggled to sit up against the curb of a well and died within seconds

that's when i found myself crying.

more in the next couple days...

  1. Amazon is only now sending me the book, so I'm looking forward to finally getting a chance to read it.
