Crystal says: Being a nurse myself I can relate to your story we tell our patients “it’s going to be fine”. Sometimes knowing we have a long road ahead. Great story.

Crystal says: Great story. We should all be grateful for everything. I’m grateful for my hubby who is my hero protecting me and our country.

Crystal says: First who doesn’t love a wolf. Need to know what happens next lol. Love the use of your prompt.
The bell on the Gas-N-Go’s door dinged but I didn’t turn around.
“Gimme all the money!”
I froze. Turning slowly, I peeked around the end of the aisle. The teenage clerk was ghost pale. Two men stood at the checkout counter. They both held guns. That’s when I realized the clerk and I were the only ones in the place. I must have been staring too hard because one of them saw me and yelled, “Get over here.”
I got over there. That was a freaking big pistol in his hand.
“What the fuck?” the other guy said, getting a load of my pink bridesmaid dress. My sentiments exactly.
“Just do what they say,” I said softly, my eyes on the scared clerk. “It’s going to be fine.”
Except it wasn’t. They saw the video cameras. They weren’t wearing masks. One attacked the clerk, beating him with the pistol. A gun went off as the other grabbed me.
A guy in leather burst in and all hell broke loose. A spray of blood splattered my dress and face. Then it was over.
“Time to go, Pink.”
Who was I to argue with a man wearing wolf eyes?
