Only a few witnessed the ceiling of the church disappear and the angels descend, carrying a naked man. His eyes were squeezed shut.

...be a good father/Johnson’s pitching tonight/lay her down in the tall grass /teach him a lesson/have MetalGarurumon…he heard them all, pleading a cacophony in his mind.

The angels left him to the cross and he opened his eyes. They all saw him then. He looked to his left and saw the nail through his wrist. He looked to his right and saw the same. He screamed.

He knew only his name.

Matthew.

    Whoa, that is definitely something to think about! I love alternate spins like this. Fascinating and also very intricate with the details. It made sense when I saw “Matthew” 😊 Amazing work!

    hmmm. I'm intrigued, but not sure I get who Matthew is.

  • Metalgarurumon and Matthew! I love how you incorporated Digimon into this!

    I'm afraid I'm not up to date with my religious texts so will miss some context and nuance, but it intrigues me to see the wrong man on the cross. Fascinating story.
