The Naked Beat


As I got to the back of the boat, Jeffrey and Rebecca each offered me a hand up. I crawled over the railing and dropped, soaking wet, onto the deck. Then I saw Harrigan boarding the ship. That old son-of-a-gun really came through for me. Not that I didn't already have the situation well in hand, you understand. But he was willing to give up everything he'd worked so hard for in order to save an old friend. That kind of loyalty only comes around once in a lifetime, and that's if you're lucky.

I was lucky...
