Jeremiahby S. Scott Twigg
In a vengeful quest, Jeremiah Stone kidnaps a member of the mob and incurs the wrath of both God and the Devil. Within days, he's had to make some hard choices concerning the lives of others, cheated certain death a half dozen times through both luck and skill, and used up almost every favor he's ever gained. All of which put him in his current position, treading the line of love and hate with the object of his affections caught somewhere in the middle. Life never turns out as planned, he thinks, frowning internally. So contemplating his situation and realizing he has no choice but to continue, Jeremiah reaches into his backpack. Pulling forth an envelope, he hands it to NYPD Captain Eric Hallaman.
"What's this," Eric asked.
"Consider it my last will and testament," Jeremiah answered. Then, without waiting for a response, he takes two quick strides and leaps towards the other rooftop leaving the captain alone with Opus. Halfway across the span between buildings, Jeremiah hears bullets plunk into the ledge behind him while other whizzed past his head.
Nothing like leaping out of the pan and into the fire Jeremiah thinks as the night swallows him.
Would it matter if he knew his soul is caught in a divine bet between God and the Devil, both of whom have denied him death twice? And it's death he desires, he just doesn't want to go out peacefully.
