Couldn't quite figure out if the condemned man's friend was a chaplain in the prison, a guard on death row, or one of the men to operate "old sparky." Whatever the relationship, you effectively portrayed the tenderness of their bond and shared anticipation of spending eternity together. Dialogue seemed genuine. Whole scene reminded me of "The Green Mile" - but infused with faith, hope and love.

Poignant dialogue between the prisoner and the other man, which I presume, in my mind is the chaplain; I like how you never defined who he actually was, it was the reader's choice, open to interpretation. Good job - especially the part of "being free shortly" obvious that he accepted Christ and repented. I liked it, reminded me of an old time novel. God Bless you~

So much emotion and vision put into the conversation and perspectives – love how this shows how differently death can be viewed with God in your heart! Good job on this!
