Last week, Matt gave Jessa a gun to protect them both, but she wasn't ready to take it. He convinced her to practice using it while it was unloaded so she can start to get used to it. That's where we pick up the story this week:
She may not have wanted to shoot before, but she learned quickly. Each time she practiced, her movements became more fluid.
Matt smiled and allowed hope to gather inside him. Even though shooting a person was different than pretending with a target, maybe she’d have the guts to pull it off if he needed her to. If there was a God, though, it wouldn’t come to that.
“This time, from where you’re standing right now, I want you to imagine someone other than me coming through that door.”
Thanks for letting me share bits of my latest baby with you these last few weeks. Next week will be our last visit with Matt and Jessa so be sure to turn in! As for today, visit www.sixsunday.com for more snippets from other authors. And be sure to leave comments for them! (Authors love those!)
