True events

In Detroit, Michigan the year is 1997. Just weeks before graduation in front of Kettering high school, turmoil is ensuing from a gang shootout. Students are fleeing in fear of their lives. Police cars are rolling up on the grass with sirens blaring. A group of students are surrounding one particular student by the name of CRYSTAL. She’s on her knees bawling. Moving through the chaos, we come upon another student by the name of CHRIS. He’s on his back with a blank stare gazing at the sky. A slight smile comes across his face slowly closing his eyes, letting a tear roll down. Four weeks before this catastrophe took place. Chris is riding around the West Side of Detroit on “Schoolcraft” Blood territory, with his best friend CLIP who is a “CRIP” affiliate. Clip has an attitude scanning over the neighborhood taking a pull from the cigarette hanging from his mouth. Chris asks him “What’s going on?” Clip proceeds telling the story about another Crip member getting murdered three days ago in front of his mother. Chris understands why his friend is mad, so he asks “Why are we on the West Side?” Clip tells him he’s looking for the person who killed his friend.

Not comfortable with the situation, Chris begins complaining, but it’s too little too late, because Clip spots the car used in the drive by parked in the parking lot of a liquor store. Clip pulls over across the street grabbing a Desert Eagle from under his seat placing it on his lap, before wrapping a blue Bandana around his face. Chris attempts to stop him, and Clip gives him a look letting him know he’ll kill him, too. Clip gets out the car making his way across the street to the store. Chris slides over in the driver seat praying the outcome doesn’t end the way he thinks it will. Inside the store, BRANDON the person who killed Clip’s friend is chatting with the Store owner. He notices the Store owner expression indicating watch out. Brandon turns just in the nick of time avoiding Clip’s punch, swinging back connecting with his jaw and the fight breaks out. The fight is going good, until Brandon lands a good punch staggering Clip, allowing him to make a run for the door, but Clip is right behind him. Dashing out the store, Brandon runs to his car, but he doesn’t get there quicker than Clip’s bullets hitting him in the back dropping him to the ground.

The Writer: Bernard Mersier

I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. In my younger years, I wanted to become a doctor when I grew up. But after winning my first writing contest in elementary, I made up my mind on becoming a writer. I believe through writing, not only do you express what’s inside your heart and mind, you can reach others with your words, because words are powerful. Majority of my writings come from self-experience, the help of others inspiring me on certain topics, and what I see, read or hear about on a daily basis. Aside from writing being a talent I was born with, I mainly do it so my children can see no matter what you set out to be in life, as long as you're determined, you can accomplish... Go to bio
