Mickey O'Donohue slowly stretched his arms out in front of him. And yawned.
He didn't know what game Sheriff Cole was playing, but Lucy McGinley's eyes had long given up playing games and Cole needed a distraction.
The pistol strayed to align with his face.
"Only stretchin', Ma'am," Mickey said. "I'm gettin' mighty uncomfortable here."
Lucy couldn't believe the stupidity of the man. Here he was, about to be shot, about to be killed, and he was so concerned about feeling uncomfortable he was begging for a bullet!
"Fool!"
Cole had tensed, but the pistol jerked back to face him.

    What is so exciting is that this story could go a number of ways from this point and I have no idea which it will be. Great nailbiting stuff, Drew. 😰

    I have to make a few decisions pdq about my own story. Not so much an impasse, but too many options on the table.

    Too many options is often the worst option, I find. I'm sure you'll find your way through the maze though :)

    Thanks Drew. Maybe I’m scared because I’m close to finishing... and I don’t know what I’ll do then. 🤔

    Haha I don't think so, mate, not for very long at all. You'll probably just get another idea and start again :)
