Freedom Isn't Free [ePub]

by Jim Martin

I used to smoke. A lot. The funny thing is, smoking is an expensive hobby. I was a bum and I was lazy. When my money was all but gone and my dog was starving I started to think that it was the end of the line. I started to think a lot of things. I decided to quit smoking. Then I started making a plan. I put together a list. I was up against it, right? I needed to make some money and I needed it quick. That's what the plan was about.

Carolyn was new to Nashville. She was beautiful and polite and all those things that girls can be when you fall in love. I doubt she'd ever done anything to hurt anybody. That's why I felt bad about it. But sometimes bad things happen to good people, and who's to say who's more important? I had responsibilities and I had a plan.

Sometimes you have to do things... Sometimes you're desperate. As long as I had a plan, I thought I was going to be okay.

Sometimes things don't go according to plan.
