Sermons On Ending Times 3

Jesus was a man that never feared.

It had to happen.

-"Judas! Where are you man?"- He walked a line, straight through the dark hall, like if his foot was following the other. You could hear the slaps and moans of the midnight shift workers sweating every penny in their rooms.

Suddenly from the shadows, a smile. It was as fake as all the orgasms upstairs.

-"Looking for some fun boss?"- said Judas with a tone that proved he would never quit cocaine.

-"Judas are you alright? I... thought you needed my help?" - said Jesus cracking his neck getting ready for a fight.

-"You should have left me... once an apple is rotten there's no way you can fix it"-

-"I can bet you're wrong... but if you are weak, you will always fall again in this pit, boy"-

-"SHUT UP! I'm not weak you prick! I'm smarter! Do you know how big this guys are? They know everybody! They are gonna start hunting witches on our asses, thanks to you miracle man! Do you know how hard is for me to get any drug around anymore?"- said Judas with a mixture of fear and anger.

-"You are being weak and stupid. Do you want this life for your children? I never said that if you followed me it would be an easy way. The right path wasn't meant for the lazy, we had finished the drug issue for the people, you could work in something else, maybe turn this into a nice shelter"-

-"The right path you say? Politicians use this so-called shelter to cheat on their wives every day and their menaces has run wild since they know you are my friend! They even shot me on the leg one day remember?"- said Judas almost running out of air.

-"And who healed you? Don't you remember that?"- said J with a stare that made him feel like a traitor.

-"It was you... but one day they will shoot me in the head and throw me to the dumpster. You won't be able to heal that"- Judas held his cries.

-"So... you sold me, I never wanted to put you through this fight between good and evil"- Jesus noticed red laser pointers across the room and guns starting to reload loudly.

-"Let's stop pretending you and I... this war is all we care"- Judas rubbed his stuffy nose with his palm. It was a matter of time for the lasers to get a clear shot of his head.

-"I should've known you'd betray your soul"- Jesus tackled Judas. He draw from his jacket a Colt.44 and aimed to the fire extinguishers in each column while making his way to the counter for cover. The air was razor shaped, you could feel bullets following your moves.

The room was a spectacle of sparks and ricochets all over the dark atmosphere.

Remember, Jesus was a man that never feared.

-"Night vision goggles are useless for about 40 seconds now".- said Jesus while reloading the revolver.-"They were aiming to your head, not mine... any clue?"-

-"I guess they must have betrayed me as well"- Judas was shocked the man that he sold just saved his life.

-"Two for the price of one kinda offer ain't it?" - Jesus handed him the gun.

-"What's this?"- Judas panicked.

-"I knew you setted me up. Actually I knew they were going to turn against you and that they were following me to Mary's place, that's why I took the rooftops"- Jesus smiled.

-"But how?! what do you want me to do with the gun?!"- Judas was even more impressed.

Like a horsemen from the apocalypse an intense roar smashed the door. Simon knew how to make an entrance. He pulled the breaks of his black motorcycle in front of the counter. Guns facing up, shots were fired targetless as a distraction to make a clean extraction.

-"Figure that on your own kiddo"- Jesus slided through the counter and mounted the bike - "Go! go hit it!"- J took Simon guns and kept on firing the skylights, as the tires screamed like a banshee from zero to 60mph. They were out in no time.

Behind Judas was left with a question, a remorse, and a bullet.

Only one bullet.
