The Way of Escape These Things: Second Edition
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.” Psalms 24:1 (KJV)
In God I am abundantly excited and eager to share my God-given revelation, because it is too great to keep to myself. Even though when I started this journey, I knew little about computers and such, but God the Spirit revealed to me the things I needed to know to get the job done, in Jesus’ name. God told me to make a list of my hearts desires and I obeyed Him based on ‘These Things’: “Delight yourself in the Lord and he shall give you the desires of your heart”, Psalms 37:4.
The Lord is my song, my joy and my praise.

Teddy Reid ground his teeth as he pounded down the lid onto the fifty-five gallon drum. Once again he was cleaning up someone else’s mess. This time it was for Riley’s sister. Reese had called him from the warehouse near hysterics. He couldn’t make out what she was saying, but understood why once he arrived. She had killed Carrington Hayes.
Brushing a grimy sleeve across his sweaty brow, he stopped his work to glance over at Reese. She stood just a few feet away; fingering the charms on the bracelet he had given her for her birthday. When he arrived, he found her in the same spot; hovering over Hayes’ body with a bloody hammer clutched to her chest. She had used it to bludgeon him to death. Teddy grimaced. Knowing Hayes’ arrogant playboy antics, he didn’t have to ask what happened. More than likely she had confronted him on his cheating.
Teddy blinked. All of this could have been avoided if she could have just given him a chance and accepted him for the man she needed. He wanted to be more than her friend, but she saw him as just another one of her brother’s flunkies, and not someone to be taken seriously. Even with her standing there covered in blood, he loved her and would do anything for her. Maybe now she would look at him, he thought. She did call him to help her.
Irritated, Teddy raked his teeth over his bottom lip. He knew Hayes would be trouble the moment he started sniffing around her. The guy was no good and he told Reese so. But even though the man was an ass, he thought the most that could happen, would be Reese crying over a broken heart, not him concealing a body in a barrel. Teddy turned back to his work. He wished Reese had taken his advice and left the fool alone.
Finished with his task, he pinched the bridge of his nose. Now he had to find a place to put the damn thing where no one would find it. But first he needed to get Reese to snap out of it. She had been standing in the same spot since he arrived. She just stood there in a daze; in shock at what she’d done. She was so out of it, he had to pry the hammer from her hand before wiping it down and tossing it in with the body.
“I…I don’t know what happened. One minute we were arguing and the next thing I knew he was laying on the floor.” Breaking out of her daze, Reese knelt down to touch the spot Teddy had cleaned.
He grabbed her up by her shoulders. “Reese, listen to me. You have to get out of here before someone shows up. Reese…” Teddy shook her; shook her hard. She had to snap out of it. Although they were in a part of the building that was rarely used, they could still be discovered if one of the crew decided to wander in, looking for some alone time with one of the girls. They were in a secluded warehouse owned and operated by the mayor.
Realizing she wasn’t going to move, Teddy decided to fore-go his plans to bury the drum. He couldn’t do that and take care of Reese too. He would have to improvise. Acting quickly, he pulled her to his car and placed her in the passenger seat. Finding a screwdriver in the mess in his trunk, he punched several holes in the top of the drum. He would have to toss the barrel into the river. With any luck, it would sink to the bottom, never to be seen again.
