Bourbon On The Rocks #18


"Of course not!" he exclaimed. "But it kept me out of the war."

I shook my head. "You know, Milton, you were a dickhole when we were kids and you still have piss dribbling down your chin."

He laughed. "Did you go?"

I didn't want to get into a discussion about the war. I was trying my damnedest to forget it.

"Yes I did. And I wasn't drafted, Milton. I actually volunteered."

He laughed so loud the crummy paint started flaking off the crummy walls.

"You talk about when we were kids," he said. "You always were a sanctimonious prick!"

    Maybe you are a bit saintly, Jake, but Milton sure is a slimebag. Not a lot of sympathy for him round here! Watch out though, he’ll try to do the dirty on you to save his arse!

    I've tried to avoid having Jake come off as holier-than-thou, but when you're intrinsically good I guess that's unavoidable.

    As far as Milton goes, he's a bit of a slimeball, but I'm still writing it and the character seems to be evolving a bit in the ones I haven't posted yet. I'm not sure what the final analysis of him is going to look like.

    Thanks for reading!

    It will be great if the way the story develops you change my mind about Milton and end up showing some sympathy for him! I like to think that in my drabble story about Rufus, while he starts out as a ruthless psychopath, by the end the reader might quite like him. I hope! :-)

    Yeah, I do remember having some sympathy for Rufus by the end of it. He was most definitely an interesting character!
