five sec in my life
just like any other day, going to the market, mom, me, and my brother my life.
talking with my mother as i notice the armored car, i saw a guard go in no cross in
my mind anything could go wrong.
got off the truck. my brother behind me like always no big deal, first to go in the
store were me and my mom as the gaurd past by us with 3 bags of money in a dolly
i cared less but two seconds later.
"move away now" those words hit me hard it triggerd a nerve, blood boiled ready
for a fight, rage, anger it all got collect so fast when i turned back and saw the
rookie guard reaching for his gun and my little brother standing in front of him.
first sec, where were the cameras, how far was the armored truck who else was
around, wht was around me.
second sec, i was faster and stronger than tht guard i could easyly take him down if
i got next to him, i could run rush him n smash him against the candy stands.
thrid sec, i rush him he pulls the gun i smash him in the candy stand take the gun
and shoot him down for even trying to reach for a gun at my brother.
fourth sec, run at him and just beat the crap out of him intill i got pulled off.
fifth sec, how would i explain my action, self defense? i just was trying to protect my
brother i just got blinded with fear of my brother? i thought of so many things to say
for my action for wht, i was going.
"move away" he said it in a lower voice and my brother just stepped aside,
i dont know becuase he lowered his voice, tht safed him from me taking action, what
if would of yelled it again? would of i taken action?
thats something i think about because when it has come to my brother i care, i
protect him with all my might n yes my life. but i always have tht question in my
head "wht if".
