Second chance

‘Don’t look at it as betrayal.  It’s salvation.  It’s doing the right thing.  You ended up on the wrong side of the tracks, now you’ve got the opportunity to make amends.’

Finlay continued to stare at the far wall.

‘You’re really prepared to jail time for them?  To take their rap?’  Carter paused.  ‘I’m offering you a second chance.’

‘You’re offering me a death sentence.’

‘We’d give you a new life.  It would be a fresh start.’

‘With no family and friends and constantly looking over my shoulder.’

‘You’d be doing the same in jail. Every second of every day.’

A drabble is a story of exactly 100 words.
