Angela and Oprah
PAGE 3
Then, Angela asked the question that changed everything. "I said, 'Where is your mother?' He's, like, 'I don't know,'" she says. "[I asked], 'Where's your father?' [He said]: 'I don't know my father. I've never met my real father.' And I said, 'Oh, honey, I'm so sorry.' And he just started bawling then and he was like: 'Ma'am, I don't want to do this, but I know you're going to call the police. I have to do this.'"

Terrified, Angela says Greg asked her to calm down and then put the gun in his pocket. "He fell to his knees and started rocking and crying. And he's like, 'Pray with me,'" she says. "I reached down and I touched him. I was like: 'Jesus, please touch him. Let him know he's a good person. He should never lower himself to this.'"

During the prayer, Greg took the bullet out of the gun and handed it to Angela. "I took it," she says. "And he said, 'No one's ever talked with me like this.'"
