I had finished off the last bit of my sherbert which that ignorant slut Amy had told me was correctly pronounced Soarbay. It was good but not as good as ice cream. Trust someone who thought salmon was a decent meal to serve weird ass ice cream with a funny name for desert. I excused myself and went to the bathroom down the hall. Once I had the door closed I fished the caps out of my pocket and armed GUN. I had been bluffing in the car but I thought if it came to displaying my desire for them to stop a sharp knock upside the head with GUNS heavy barrel would have worked. If not? Life was short and HE would be waiting for me on the other side.
I flipped my wienie out and blasted a burst into the bowl. I was always happy to see the plumbing working. Before I stepped out into the hallway I took a look at myself in the mirror. I had been told more than once that I looked like a cave man. Once I was told I had craggy good looks by someone who eventually left me for a woman so at best I was probably somewhere in between. I did have good eyes. Blue and piercing. I gave the mirror my best piercing stare. Yep. They pierced pretty good. Especially now that I had HIM inside me. I had noticed that people didn't like holding eye contact with me for very long. They just couldn't handle the eye contact when it came from a servant of the LORD. I knew his WORD and it told me "Your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods." I took one last look in the mirror and thought maybe it was time to grow a beard. A beard would help me look more biblical. People loved that stuff.
They were waiting for me. I was sure I heard Amy say "...he is a little rough around the edges" as I walked down the hallway. I settled back in my chair and Tyler said "Well Chosen now that we have eaten lets talk about you and us.
He smiled. Tyler was a smiler amongst other things. "Dennis just got off the phone. The video of you and your friend in the Safeway..." He paused so I could really focus on him I guess and said "It has been viewed more times than any video Youtube has ever had in the amount of time it has been up. It's even starting to show up in foreign languages.
Denis broke in "It's amazing. The woman who took it is famous now. People are looking all over for you. People like your message Chosen. They like it a lot."
Tyler continued "People we represent think you may be on to something..."
I interrupted him "The church groups?"
"Not just them Chosen. It's more than that. They are willing to help you. Provide you with a place to stay. Make sure you get enough to eat and, well, just take care of your earthly needs. Amy here is a media specialist. Dennis is our liaison and strategist. I'm ..." He laughed depreciating "I guess I am the experience and wisdom part. There is, or can be, a bunch of people behind them to help. There is a lot of resources than quickly be focused behind you Chosen. A lot." He emphasized the last two words.
Dennis filled the silence, asking me "Is this something you would be interested in?"
I thought about it for a few seconds. "I had never handled snakes but I thought I was up to it unless I got word from HIM otherwise. I didn't answer right away. I didn't want to look eager. In fact I milked it a bit by looking around the room at each of them. Then I thought a bit more and said "Yes. What do you want from me?"
