Christian just got fired, and he was afraid he wouldnt be able to support his family. Christian had a beautiful young wife named Casey and a gorgeous newborn baby named Jeremy. When he arrived at home at 8:00, Casey was waiting up, with the baby wrapped in a soft warm blanket in her arms. Christian played it off as if he had work again tomorrow and got ready for bed. He stared into his eyes in the mirror and cried and quickly wiped it away as his wife knocked on the door. He had a plan to dress in his work uniform and go out and look for a new job. Christian talked to all his friends and at the end of the list was his druggie friend Sean. He called and asked if he needed any work and Sean only said that he could deal drugs with him. So he went to his house and talked buisness. They had a plan to sell cocaine at double the price they bought it for and they would split it 50-50. That night when Christian got home, he went straight to bed. About 3 months later he was making a little more than his job at the resturant but he needed more to pay his bills, buy baby stuff and pay off his debts. Christian was driving down a street where he typically sold coke on and he looked in hi rear view mirror and saw a car park at the end of the street as if they were blockading it, and when he looked forward again he slammed into a big black truck and 2 men got out and ran to his car door. They pulled guns out and threw him out of the vehicle and aimed guns at him, he reached for a shard of glass from the wreckage on the smoldering hot street and jammed it into one of the mens shin. He felt the resistance of the flesh and felt it stop when it came through the other side of the mans calf. The man screamed and dropped his gun, in a rush Christian reached for his gun and shot the other man in the knee cap and watched him fall to the ground. Christian quickly grabbed that mans gun as well and as the man looked up at him, Christian aimed both barells at his chest and shot into his torso and pushed the hot barrell end of the guns into the mans eyes and watched him die. By this time at the end of the street the other men were out of the car and running toward him, Christian took cover behind his crippled car and the men pulled guns from their jackets. Christian fired off 2 shots, both accurately shot right inbetween the eyes of his attackers. He felt a great rush. like he has never felt before, Christian felt exilarated and amazed he had done such a thing. He Felt Alive. Christian sprinted through multiple alley ways and got to the alley behind his house, with his Friendly's uniform still on he stashed the 2 9 millimeters in a pot in his backyard and walked inside calmly. He sat went to the bathroom and immediately threw up, following that he washed his face and looked at his reflection in the water. He thought long and hard about what he'd done and thought that most normal people would of been horrified, but he just felt alive. The next day he got a call from a restricted number, talking about a job they had for him, so he met in the place they requested, with his new guns of course and talked to the man. He had heard about the people that were killed the following day and somehow the man knew it was him. so Christian accepted the money and set on for the hunt for this man. He went to the address the man had given him and soon found out that the target was his old friend Sean. The man already paid Christian half now and would pay the other half when the job was done. He thought for awhile if he could even kill his friend, but it was for his family. so it had to be done.
