Chapter 5

"I asked you if you knew what this meant?" He asked holding the amulet in my face.

"Not exactly, but I know it has something to do with that strange little man in the prison," was my reply.

"Well, I inquired around town about it, and discovered its direct connection to a man called Jesus. Have you heard of him? He is the one who was supposed to have risen from the dead after being crucified. The report is that more than four hundred people saw him after his resurrection. This amulet is a symbol of something he said to some of his closest followers," Romy explained rather excitedly.

I tried to calm him down but to no avail. He was evidently terrified by the whole idea of someone coming back to life after they were dead.

"Well, I don't believe a word of it! Come on, Romy, you can't tell me you really believe that, do you?" I said pressing him to calm down.

"What if it's true? Aren't you afraid of what those people who died in our prison would do to us?" Romy asked.

I could tell this was getting out of control, so I tried a little harder to get him to calm down.

"Romy, if I were you, I think I would be afraid of what people might do to you when they hear you talking like this," I insisted.

As I looked into his eyes I could see the fear. He then began to tell me about a man who had come to visit the strange little man before.
