Exit Messiah

 “That’s a very large Jesus sticker on your window there, eh?”

“Go big for the big guy.”

“I suppose. Do you think he was really that white?”

“Don’t know. I’m just pumping gas. And you’re just a guy wandering around. So, what do we know?”

“Maybe so. Have a good day.”

The man tilted his head in recognition as he cradled the gas pump. He hopped back in his Civic and drove off. Jesus disappeared around the corner, leaving his gas station flock to fend for themselves.
