Brigid Kildare's Steel Works (Excerpt)
Brigid Kildare has always loved fire. She uses a torch welder to make huge metal sculptures in a garage she shares with an assortment of bikers, who suppose they're a gang and call themselves the Chieftains. Her lifelong best friend is Patrick, a Christian biker who gives a lift to the addicts and prostitutes he finds on the street.
She thinks the major problem in her life is that Patrick and the less than intellectually gifted Meghan have found romance with each other. Not that SHE wants to date Patrick. But it's still very annoying.
One day as they're minding their own business at Kerry's bar, the Chieftains rumble with the Snakes and the wise mentor of the Snakes, Fabian, is nearly killed, allegedly by Patrick, though all of the Chieftains are possible culprits.
Patrick and all the Chieftains are on trial to answer for their faith, their beliefs and their motivations. The Court asks them, "Who are you, really?"
Naplwrimo runs on love, sweat and your generous help.
