Janie loved John Wayne. She loved his horse, his many guns and the way he smiled. She wished more than anything that he would come to kill her Daddy. Her Daddy hurt Janie with his fingers. He had to pay and Janie was too young to buy a gun. So she prayed to God for John Wayne to come rescue her, save her from this hell, this life. She was nine years old when she met Jonny, the boy with the funny hair and bruises on his cheek. A gift from his Mommy.
