They took something from her she can never get back – Turned her blue days black – She will make them pay with what they can not buy –
When Mercy comes someone is bound to die

Nathan leaned against his bike, hand under his chin he pondered Screws argument.
”You see man an woman …two different bloodclart species you can’t tell me nuthin’. “ hitting the air with aggression Screw waited for the listening ears to collaborate his random theory.
Defeated by the heavy silence, he lit the tail of his spliff and simmered down. Nathan dropped his shoulder and shook his head, twenty years they had been friends and Screw face aka Delroy Brown had never changed.
Change had been on his mind a lot lately. Man like Screw came once in a lifetime hence their brotherly bond but there was a time for everything and it was that time.
Tayshan had been his wifey for two years and her altermatum was get out or stay out. It was different for Tay, she had a good start, the product of a happy home was a far cry from the shit hole Nathan had grown up in. There was no happy home, or a parents around instead he had clambered through the care system and made it out. Nathan had no time for pity stories but he had a lot of time for Tayshan; Her beautiful hair and long legs had taken him deeper than he had ever been.
Drifting his gaze over the street he thought nothing of the female approaching her head low, beneath a large hood hips swaying in the slight drizzle. Screw had begun another unnecessary tale one that surprisingly had the audience captivated. Taking his focus off death approaching he listened as if he had been doing so all along.
“Yes Screw, that makes sense..”
“See even my man Nate here understands the deal. In this day and age we are no longer….” Screws words drifted off as a bullet brust through skin, flesh and skull.
Screws body dropped to the ground, the crowd had fled and the shooter dissappeared into the night.
Staring at his oldest friends dead body Nathan smiled. Mercy was about to change everything.
