I heard Creighton tell the clerk not to say or try anything.
"Act calm," he said as they were walking to the cooler. He had the gun jabbed into the clerk's neck with his right hand and the back of the clerk's shirt scrunched up in his left hand. They passed me, and Creighton finally acknowledged me.
"You get back here, too, you stupid bitch."
No way was this really happening, I thought. The man I loved was going to do this? It wasn't possible. I started to follow them both to the back cooler. The clerk was so scared he urinated in his pants. Creighton walked behind him, the gun still to his neck. I could see a trail of urine on the floor. I finally realized this was not a joke.
We got to the walk-in cooler where the beer and sodas were stored. I stayed in the archway of the door and watched in horror as Creighton yelled at the clerk to get on the ground. Creighton pushed him and he lay down on his stomach. The clerk still hadn't said a word to try to save himself from what was about to happen. Creighton put his left foot on the clerk's back, right between his shoulders and his butt, and I shouted out, "What are you doing? Why are you doing this to him?"
I hoped that the clerk would plead for his life, but the sad truth was he was too scared.
Expressionless, Creighton looked at me and then he looked at the clerk. "Please don't do this to him," I pleaded. "What are you doing Creighton? Please don't do this. Please. Look at how scared he is. He won't tell anyone, and neither of us will. Stop!"
I have never written a review before but I regret spending money on this book. It was a poor read and the writer failed to tell the story in a manner that would hold my interest. Boring. Boring. Boring.
One of the worse books I have gotten. Not believable. Poorly written and a waste of time.
Move on to something else.
What disappointed you about A Journey Beyond Abuse?
This is a very poorly written book. It doesn't really give any background on the characters.
What could J. G. Porter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Its a sad story, but I think there is a lot more to the girl in this book than was let on. I felt she was more troubled than what we were led to believe.
Would you be willing to try another one of Lisa Meadows’s performances?
Absolutely not!! If I could have given a minus star I would have. lol
Any additional comments?
Lisa Meadows performance was just horrible. I will not buy another book if she is reading it.
