Wells doesn’t respond. He gives her a heartless stare and snatches it away from her. Wells slowly makes his way out of the room.
Shortly afterward, Ackerman is standing next to the sedan as Wells makes his way outside.
“You think I could get my job back with that book?” she asks.
Wells slowly makes his way down the steps, thumbing through a few pages.
“Yeah, you could get your job back and destroy everything else the Bureau has held on to and protected for so many years.”
“Look, I know you want to keep this under wraps but what if James finds out about this and starts the Easter Day Murders all over again?”
Wells hands Ackerman the book. “Then I’ll be waiting for him.”
It’s six weeks later, back in Hutchins, Texas, at Nicole and James’s home. It’s about six o’clock in the evening, and the neighborhood is quiet. Suddenly staggering outside with blood smeared over his shirt, James is in tears. He’s shaken up. James grips the phone in his hand and paces around talking to himself.
“I shouldn’t have done this! Why did I do this?”
Finally, James calms himself down and dials 911.
Inside the house, in the living room, Nicole is hanging from the chandelier with her stomach sliced open. Blood is everywhere. The house is trashed. James comes back in and looks at Nicole’s body. James begins to laugh as he hears the sirens approach their home. James takes out a cigarette and lights it.
“Love is just what it looks and sounds like: a four-letter word.”
James laughs and takes a seat.
Being able to adapt to a skill which lies dormant in a lot of people: Surviving through the hard times in our neighborhood we demanded it, with the help of God. The first time you read "Easter Day Murders", the debut novel from Bryant Jackson and Edward Meadows, you will experience a motion picture novel. These two authors have created a new avenue of novels which hasn't been tapped into yet. Being long time friends, Edward and Bryant shared different outlooks on movies and novels. Both being from two southern states, Bryant from Arkansas and Edward from Alabama, the two came together in 2001 on their first project "Legions", with consistance and encouragement from peers and fellow co-writer, Ronald Givens Jr., also from Arkansas, Edward and Bryant put forth the effort to make writing screenplays and novels more than just a hobby. In 2004 Bryant moved to Texas and Edward and Ronald remained in Arkansas, but the split didn't deny them of creating new stories. Before returning back to Arkansas in 2007 Bryant and Edward sat down put all their ideas together and made their multi-media label concrete, Triple Vision Entertainmnet LLC, over four projects was completed and three now are being optioned into novels. When first asked about the entertainment industry, Bryant stated, "The reason why today's industry is hurting, people who've already made it are not willing to give nobody else a chance, ecspecially when they can make a difference in the industry. Until those people are given a chance the consumers are going to keep suffering from wanting a breath of fresh air, but we're going to keep pressing our way and keep believing in God."
