Nature of the Beast - Jack
Time passed slowly, Jack wandered the halls aimlessly, wanting to know but afraid to ask. What he didn’t know couldn’t hurt him. Losing Nick would be more than his battered soul could stand. Strangely, his wandering had taken him to the chapel. Church and God; two things he had given up on since his wife had left him. He had stopped believing in a loving, merciful God, Jack had seen too much over the years. His faith had dried up like an afternoon rain under the sun’s harsh glare. How could God stand by with all the pain and suffering in the world? How could he believe in a God that would allow a wife to break her vows and take his children from him? Jack stood outside the door, wondering if his pleas to a God he had abandoned long ago would be answered.
