(Imraan Al-Hariq continued form Back in St. Paul, if Just for an Evening...)

Imraan had eaten. He had rested. He had allowed himself one last vestige of the civilized world, and moreso, one last reminder of those he was trying to save.

Now, it was time to act. He HAD to act.

Previously, when he had thought he had been ready, Imraan had recited to himself the Beatitudes. He had been wrong to do so, just as he had been wrong to think he was prepared so early in the game. He wished again that he had brought a Bible with him on the trip. He could have taken one from the Parish, perhaps, but that was no longer an option. They could not be considered holy. As it was, his memory searched itself back, and settled on the necessary verse.

Finally, be strong in The Lord and His mighty power.

He was ready.

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.

To take his stand.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the authorities, against the power of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

The authorities. Danya. Danya could not be defeated through strength of arms, or through escape. He could only be defeated if someone like Imraan took a stand, and deprived him of a winner, deprived him the satisfaction of letting one who spilled blood win this game.

Ones like those he had glimpsed inside this house. Ones he had met before, and let them go off to kill again. To kill and be REWARDED again. Danya would no doubt be pleased with Ivan Kuznetsov and Tabitha Gweneth.

He would be less pleased with Imraan Al-Hariq.

Therefore, put on the fill armor of God, so that when that day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
