Sample text

I would have confronted him from behind a Glock, asked him to say one true thing with my free hand at his throat and my knee in his nuts, my spit flying into his open face as he sweated his last, as he knew with certainty this would be his final breath. Justine is making coffee, and for some reason, the smell of it is a reminder of being in my parents’ house, something I have not thought about for years. I don’t allow myself to think of them, of that place. I never smoked cigarettes, and I genuinely hate the damn things.

My body. My plan, as far as it goes, is to deny him that rush, to look at him with these big baby blues and not blink. I might even thank the fucker for ending my walk through this stain of a town, of a life. I look down at Justine again and feel a momentary pang of remorse for not knowing her better, but it fades in a single heartbeat. It snowed hard through the night, an early heavy snowfall even for this town of northern latitude. Justine had to stamp the snow from her shoes when she came in last night, and she headed straight for a hot shower, complaining that the wind cut through her tiny uniform even though she wore an overcoat.

And ye shall know the truth. And the truth is we have become agents of nihilism, one and all. Chanelle and Justine come into the bedroom together. Justine was making coffee when her sister used her key to get in, and Chanelle asks about the beer bottle that had been sitting on the doorknob, which fell and broke into a thousand pieces on the linoleum when she turned the knob. I know I have to tell them, not about the bottle but what it represents, the danger. But why would they believe me? I have never let on that I was ever anything but what they know, a harddrinking convenience store clerk.
