The Meek Shall Inherit
Not knowing what Jake
had planned when he arranged
the meet with Mack, but Jake had
to be hurting from those 38 slugs.
It was always going to come to this,
leave Maggie out of their goings on,
or else, and else came when the
bullets started flying with Maggie
in the middle.
The fact that Mack saved
her life a night ago,
by taking out the two shooters,
and in the process hitting Jake,
might not count for much.
He pulled back the slide on his 38.
Mack could see the three figures
waiting for him. He muttered
what in the holy hell, when he realized
what he was seeing,
There was Jake, Maggie,
Louis too. The same sighting
of Louis earlier.
