Yeah, I’m lying here on the sidewalk spilling my guts all over. I risked my life to defend the woman I love. Funny thing, I never told her I loved her. I never even kissed her…not even once. Now, I’ll never get my chance because I’m bleeding out. Darn it. I hear her voice…so far away now. Everything’s going dark. Jess…I… Gammy?
