“I know Julia, just shelf it for a moment. I need to get off the street. This really hurts.” I still can’t believe I got shot.
“Holy shit! You’re hurt! Oh my God, Justin, I’m so sorry. I didn’t even notice. There was just so much going on and you were glowing.”
“Calm down Jules. Just get me to a church, any church.” I sag under the weight of my own body, unable to ignore the waves of pain crashing through me. My knees shake and I fall, darkness filling my sight before I hit the floor.
