“Yeah, it’s true. Are you surprised?”

“Yeah!” he blurted. He backtracked. “No. I don’t know. Not really I guess.”

“But I told you,” Mark reminded him. “I told you, but you thought I was full of shit.”

“Well Christ man! Who would believe it?” he nervously laughed.

“You.” Mark looked directly at him. “You believe me.”

“Right. Yes I do,” he nodded his head in affirmation. “Christ!”

“It something else though. Huh?” Mark shifted his weight off one foot to the other.

“Well I should have known.” He put his arm on Mark's shoulder.

“You did know,” Mark looked at him. “I told you.”

“Yeah, I guess you did.” He gave his shoulder a squeeze.

“I always tell people the truth and they think it’s bullshit,” Mark looked into his eyes. “Hey?” his tone made him look at him.

“Yeah Mark?”

“Pray for me,” he whispered. “Will you?”

“Done bro,” he gave his shoulder a squeeze. "Christ!"

"But I told you," Mark whispered.
