Excerpt

PROLOGUE

COLE

Have you
ever been to a funeral where the preacher stands before the friends and loved
ones of the deceased and talks about how shitty the person was? How he fucked
around on his wife? Or spent his family’s life savings to feed his gambling
addiction? How about during his bachelor party when he snorted coke off a
hooker’s ass?
Me neither.
Why is it
that we’re fucking saints the moment we die?
You hear
the preacher say things like, “Oh, John
Smith was a lovely man who loved his wife and kids,”
when he should really
be saying, “John Smith was a worthless
piece of shit who fucked the underage babysitter every chance he fucking got
while his wife was busy working two jobs and raising his ungrateful children.”
And let’s
not forget that the deceased in that casket before you never even went to
church. Let alone knew the preacher who speaks so highly of him. All he knows
are the stories the blinded loved ones wrote down on a little card for him to
share.
He’s a fucking puppet.
I haven’t
read the Bible word for word, but I know the Lord says if we confess our sins
and ask for forgiveness, he will cleanse our souls, and we will be forgiven.
Poof. It’s like magic.
Now that
begs the question–what if you’re not sorry? What if you don’t care to be
forgiven?
No amount
of holy water could cleanse my soul, and I’m okay with that because when I
sinned, I understood that I would one day have to pay. We’re all going to die
eventually. You can be one of those people who bury your head in the sand to
avoid talking about it all you want, but it’s life!
Live or
die.
Heaven or
hell.
Angel or
devil.
It’s black
and white. There are no gray areas.
So tell me
... when you’re lying in that casket in front of your friends and family, what
are they going to think of you? Are they gonna believe that preacher who talks
bullshit, or are they gonna know you didn’t care if you were going to burn for
eternity?
I’m not a
religious person. Obviously. But I do know this. When I am damned to hell,
it’ll be because I fucking earned it.
