My life was one giant duplicitous act.
As I sat in the CR-V panting and drenched in sweat, I wondered how I was going to get myself out of this shit, shit that I was in up to my neck. For once in my life, I wasn’t so self-assured.
“Jesus, bro! What are we going to do? He’s got a fucking gun!” The driver shouted. As I watched the man approach the car in the vanity mirror, I briefly closed my eyes. How the hell did it come to this? I asked myself. It was supposed to be so simple. I only wanted a business of my own. I would have never expected to be in the crosshairs of a maniac’s gun. But of course I was. Every decision I’d made, decisions that seemed so inconsequential, so insignificant at the time, had brought me right here, right to this moment. My choices had altered the course of not only my life, but also the lives of all the people I loved.
Snapping back into the present, I opened my eyes. “Right now, I need you to calm the fuck down and drive.”
The car lurched forward as a bullet shattered the back window.
