Sheriff Cole paused at the door.
The Mayor rose. "Sit down. Please." It was more command than offer.
The Sheriff sighed audibly and returned to his seat. Mickey O'Donohue sat down again. Eventually, the Mayor sat too.
"Cole, we've known each other long enough, how many years is it? I like to think we're friends, if not good friends. What's eating at you?"
"Joshua..." the Sheriff began. Mickey O'Donohue almost jumped. It was the first time he'd heard anyone call McGinley by his first name. Up until now if he wasn't Mayor McGinley he'd be Minister McGinley. But never Joshua.
