Hand of God

I swear I see copper winking at me from inside the Ruger’s barrel. He attacked me while I was jogging in the park. Earbuds in and a head full of tunes, and I didn’t hear him. He materialized in front of me with the gun pointed at me eye level.

“What the hell?”

A grin stretches his face. He chuckles then begins laughing.

I throw earbuds, phone, watch and yell,

“What do you want?”

He wipes at the tears from his maniacal laughter and pulls the trigger.



Laughter stops. He runs.

Looking down.

I’m ok.

No bullets.
