"He didn't kill anyone Mick, you remember that. Didn't kill Mr Bowen, neither."
A commotion at the bar distracted Sheriff Cole. Three men, two of them strangers, were arguing loudly and a circle of space had formed around them. The cause was unclear but it would soon blow itself out, Cole decided after a cursory glance. It was a typical early evening squall. And sure enough bonhomie was soon restored and the three men were slapping each other on the back and insisting on buying each other drinks again.
Cole continued: "But John Bowen's different, Mick, John Bowen's very different."

    Intriguing Drew. I can’t see where this is going, which makes it all the more fun to read!

    Thanks for the comments Neville. At least now I have a clear idea of where this is going, but these characters may lead me off in another direction at any time. I just hope they behave lol :)

    I know the tendency of characters you get to like tugging your arm like a kid after a choc-ice. You have to give in to them🙂
