It could have been me

What scared me?

The loaded gun? No, not that.

That he was prepared to take my life over the green in my pocket? Strangely, no.

It wasn’t that I recognized him. High School…. Calculus, right?

His eyes.

That desperation.

Like the clearest mirror I’d ever seen. And that terrified me.
