In the Name of the Father 15: The Fall of Harmony Baptist Church

I’m not sure how much longer it could have gone on. Brother Haste’s home was obviously an unhappy one. He had fought a war against his daughter for wanting to marry a black man. He scoured the Bible, looking for any passage that might make it a sin for her to marry who she loved.… Continue reading In the Name of the Father 15: The Fall of Harmony Baptist Church

In the Name of the Father 14: Sasquatch 5

Therapy is supposed to cost 24 bucks. That is, after Medicare hits it, paying most of it and leaving me with this copay. See Medicare is no joke. It is the best insurance any of us has ever seen. Over the years it has been cut again and again. It is on a butcher’s block… Continue reading In the Name of the Father 14: Sasquatch 5

She lifted her fist… Continue reading In the Name of the Father 5: The Rise of Rose

“For the love of all that is fuck, this girl has an ass like ‘yes, please,’” Shadow said. Arthur smiled and nodded. He looked me up and down, then back into my eyes with interest. “Long hair, about to the breasts. Very straight. She tucks it behind her ears. Face of an angel. Smile of… Continue reading In the Name of the Father 3: Camelot Part 1

In the Name of the Father 2: Man of God

“This mutha fucker right here.” Servant pointed at the holiest man he ever knew in front of the entire congregation of Harmony Baptist Church, and no one gasped. No one stood up and yelled him down.

Aftermath Guardian’s War 16: Undeniable

Rose loved Servant for the obedience he showed her and what he could give her. Her marriage with Mumble was loveless and frigid, and Servant gave her arms to wrap around herself and a soul to make her feel special.
