Nearly upside down in his chair, Night Lord watched the video of Power-house’s bust at a ring of car thieves’ hideout. The thieves began to fire. Power-house hit the ground. Night Lord smiled. “You’re not bullet-proof, that’s for sure.”
Powerhouse released a smoke bomb.
“That’s a good trick, pal. We’ll have to find a way around it.”
Powerhouse entered Mrs. Kennedy’s room carrying a Bible he’d found in the lobby and sat across from her.
Mrs. Kennedy sat up in bed.
Powerhouse opened the Bible at random and read about a sacrifice to dedicate something called a tabernacle that the children of Israel built.
Several paragraphs in, Powerhouse frowned. “All these sacrifices are exactly the same. I didn’t know they had copy and paste back then.”
Mrs. Kennedy shook her head.
Powerhouse skipped ahead by a hunk of pages and began to read. “Adam, Seth, Enosh, Kenan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech.” He paused. “Is this the phone book of the Bible?”
After three more chapters like this, he yawned. “I don’t get it.”
Mrs. Kennedy grabbed the Bible from him. “You have to believe.” She clutched the Bible to her chest and went to sleep.
