Night Lord stared down into the classroom the youth usually met in. No one was in there. By now the service should’ve been about over. The laughter of two boys resounded through the ventilation shaft. They were already using their new youth center. Disaster! The center wasn’t to be opened for two months at the earliest.
He left the church and ran outside. Jones was talking with Powerhouse. He hid behind a bush, shouldering his dart gun.
“I’m a good guy,” said Powerhouse. “How could I not go to Heaven?”
“Are you perfect?”
“No, but what’s that got to do with it?”
Night Lord focused on the pastor and prepared to fire.

“But nobody’s perfect!”
The Pastor nodded. “That’s why we need Jesus.”
