“What was that sound?” Father Mitch asked. He looked over at Tony, who was leaning back in a styling chair, staring at the ceiling.

Tony leaned forward and then stood. “It sounded like someone came into the building.”

Max opened his eyes. Napping seemed like the best thing to do while they waited for inspiration to strike. “What’s going on?” Continue reading “Chap. 13—Red Horse (Seven Seals Redux, #2)”

Jibber and Miss Foo were restless inside the school van. Jibber whimpered as she clawed at the corner of the van’s door as if she were trying to dig a hole to escape.

“They need to go to the bathroom,” Georgie said, rising from the backseat. He stooped toward the door, hovering over the anxious pooches, ready to let them out.

“Wait a minute, Georgie,” Sarah said. “If we let them out, the birds will attack them.” Continue reading “Chap. 11—Red Horse (Seven Seals Redux, #2)”

Max, Tony, and Father Mitch collapsed into the black cushioned styling chairs, turning them to face out toward their feathered guards.

“I don’t know about the rest of you,” Max said, lighting a cigarette and taking a long drag, “but I’m exhausted.”

“I think we should use this quiet time to rest and figure out what to do,” Father said, rubbing his sore wrists. Continue reading “Chap. 10—Red Horse (Seven Seals Redux, #2)”

“I’ll scare them away,” Tony said, walking through the sliding double doors. “You two, stay here.”

Max and Father Mitch watched as Tony went through the last set of doors and stepped onto the sidewalk, clapping his hands and shouting for the seagulls to fly away. The birds took flight as if they were flying away, but instead of leaving as Tony had planned, they circled around and swooped down at him, like white feathered piranhas after fresh meat.

“That kid took Father to that side of the store,” Tony said, pointing toward the produce department. He jumped on his mountain bike and began peddling down the broad aisle between the checkout counters and women’s clothing.

Max was right behind Tony until he saw the checkout with tobacco products. He got off his bike, went around the counter, and grabbed a couple packs of cigarettes, which he shoved into his pockets, along with a lighter. “Tony, hold on.” Continue reading “Chap. 8—Red Horse (Seven Seals Redux, #2)”

Buddy elbowed Tony and pushed him into the wall as he unlocked the glass door. He loaded a shell into his hunting rifle, turned off the safety, and opened the door. Pressing the stock into his shoulder, he squeezed the trigger. The deer was so close there was no need to aim as he loaded another shell and fired again. The enraged animal charged him, knocking him into the tempered glass where he fell onto the oily concrete. He brought his rifle up and fired one more shot at close range, finally dropping the animal.
