Dear Friends, this is David Telbat with “Bicycle Bandits, a Steadfast Short Story.” Many of you have been reading The STEADFAST Series (novellas), and you’re waiting for more. Well, I’m eager to write more! You’ve certainly noticed that the idea behind Steadfast is not the futuristic setting, or the post-pandemic scenario. Rather, what makes Steadfast most unique may be the resilient character of a simple man in the most strenuous of circumstances. How about remaining Christ-like while being shot at? This is another installment in the Steadfast timeline. Stay tuned for more Steadfast Shorts, novellas, and full-length novels to come! And remember, in America’s last days, only the steadfast will prevail!

Ben Lawrence pedaled his mountain bike faster. Sweat poured into his eyes—not from the exercise, but from the terror. After remaining cautious for so many years, highway bandits were now about to kill him!
He ceased pedaling for an instant and peeked under his arm at the road behind him. Heidi, his wife of seventeen years, was falling back. During the first winter after the virus had swept across America, Heidi had lost too much weight, along with her stamina. Now, with five robbers on bicycles chasing them, Heidi was faltering when she needed to pedal for her life!.
