"Kill him." The moment the words were out of his mouth, I dropped the gun in shock and took a back step.
"I will let you go if you kill him," he was pointing towards John.
"No," I whispered.
"Tsk-tsk, and here I thought you wanted to leave," he said with no remorse.
"I can't," I stuttered.
"Why?" he asked.
"It's a sin," I whispered.
The leader walked towards me, and before I could step away, he grabbed my wrist and pulled me closer. I gasped seeing him so close to me and was struggling to move away from him; however, he turned me around abruptly, making me face John while he stood close from behind; my bareback felt the fabric of his white shirt.
"What will happen if you sinned?" he asked, leaning close to my ear.
"Please," I begged, closing my eyes.
"I will tell you what will happen. If you sin," he leaned closer before adding, "you burn in hell." I didn't realize when he placed the gun in my hand, locking my fingers around it with his own, and raised it towards John.
"And this is hell." Before I could stop him or pull my hand away, he pulled the trigger, followed by the gunshot, and I shut my eyes tightly.
