Her – how my life was changed by a chance encounter.


A short story by Rick Field.


I blinked, then frowned, when I noticed the strange squiggly piece of graffiti. To this day, I do not know what had caused my eye to fall on the small figure, and sometimes, I wish I had not noticed it and continued on my nightly voyage.

However, I did not continue, and I had noticed it. In a flash, I had passed it – the speed limit was 45, and I was doing a conservative 50. At the next intersection, I turned around.

Pulling over where I had thought I had seen the graffiti, I got out of the car to investigate. My excitement tempered as I fingered the gratifying weight of the Colt in my inner pocket.

I may be what most people would call a 'nerd' – a PhD in Biology by age 25 will do that to a man – but I was born and raised in the Deep South. God and Guns had been as much part of my upbringing as had been hamburgers and French Fries.
