She looked at me, back to the bodies, than back at me and said "What Army?"
"She had a point" I thought . "My Army...well, you would be the first member of it." I paused, watched her face, an added "It is the Army of the LORD." I knew that would impress her. She didn't laugh which is what I was secretly afraid she would do. While she considered it my heart leapt and I thanked HE who had brought her. She was hot. Young...maybe to young. She was Black which wasn't a problem. I hoped me being White wasn't a problem for her. Skinny tho for a Black girl. They usually were big girls around here. She interrupted my prayer of gratitude when she asked "Do I get to be a General?"
"Hmmm...I don't see why not." I told her. I hadn't thought about ranks. I was The Chosen and everyone else was "The Rest."
"I have AIDS..." She waited to see what my reaction would be.
"Okay. We all have issues. HE doesn't seem to care as long as you don't sin and follow his plan." Inside I was relieved and disappointed. Disappointed that I would not be getting any and relieved that even though I wouldn't be getting any it sounded like she was considering joining. I liked that. Maybe HE would talk to her too.
She stood up and was brushing her clothes off. She asked me "What's this plan?"
I had never articulated it to anyone before. I had heard it in my mind but getting it out of there and past my lips wasn't working so good. Especially as she was staring at me with her big brown eyes. Answering this was harder than stabbing the sinners.
"HE is God. He talks to me and shows me visions. This world is coming to an end soon. We need to help make it happen by breaking the Devil machines and building an Army so we survive. Then we will go to a place and live." I stopped, then added quickly, "No wearing sunglasses."
She looked at me solemnly "Do we get kill assholes like this or is that a sin?"
I was surprised by the question. "No! HE wants people like this dead."
She smiled. The first time I had seen her smile so far. "Okay." Just like that I had a General for my Army. I threw up my hands and yelled "Thank you LORD!"
She didn't join me in thanking the LORD. Instead she scowled and said "Quit making so much noise and help me drag these assholes off the trail."
