The Visit

Hey!! wake up!! you don't wanna miss this!! The soft voice that woke him, he didn't know. Opening his eyes and seeing two grim faces. Along with one that was angry and beautiful. And the startling fact the last thing he heard was the hammer being pulled back. Click Click Click None of them were family or kin, never mind the question of how they got in. Waking up to cold steel touching his skin. But wait! ... This is not where the story begins. A young no talent Rapper, pimp wanna be, just turning twenty-three. Running the streets trying to be somebody. Not a member of a gang speaking nothing but slang. using every four-letter word except B-E-L-T. That he needs to hold up the jeans hanging off his behind. Thinking he's fine and in fashion and always looking for some action. Got the hook up and now carrying a black 38 Smith & Wesson. The young blood is in need of a good lesson. Saw a beautiful young lady and not wanting to miss a chance for a little romance. He showed the lady the caliber of his conversation. Of course, she was not impressed. But ask for his phone number. Saying playfully, you'll be hearing from me. And well you know the rest. Hey!! Wake up!! You don't wanna miss this!! Click Click Click

Robert, A complex love affair of the heart, and well described life born of chaos. The candle burned at both ends, after being dipped in gasoline. 'Live by the sword...' -Richard

The first words out of his mouth is wait, what did I do to you? Dying by the sword in the middle of a turf war. There was no room for romance. Thanks for the read.
