A Little Excerpt

“Are you feeling better now, Kevin?” Jack Andrews (The Magic Video Game) questioned his “baby brother.”
“Yes, my chest is a little sore from the gun and running so far. But I’m fine,” Kevin Maggliardi replied.
“Do you have a bruise?”
“Yeah, I got a nice bruise from those bozos pressing the gun into my chest.”
“Oh wow,” Jack said.
“Yeah. It was absolutely terrifying. I was on my way to your place, and my brain thought I had been hit by a car. I was grabbed from the sidewalk and pushed against a wall in the alley. I had a gun against my head and my chest,” Kevin remarked.
“Oh wow. Poor kid.”
“Yup. It sucked. The guys looked terrifying even. The one pressing the gun against my chest had rotting teeth, no joke. I was concentrating on my breathing and my heart rate because I didn’t want to show them that I was freaking out. I could actually hear my heart pounding as if on an ultrasound. It was crazy. I started freaking out when my heart stopped.”
“Your heart stopped?”
“For a split second. Then it just started skipping and slowing down and then beating too fast because of how much pressure the gun was putting on my heart. He kept screaming at me to give him my money. I had like twelve bucks on me.”
“Yeah. Thankfully, my heart is really strong, so it could withstand the pressure from the gun. And it’s beating normally now.”
