Bourbon On The Rocks #216

by

Cal cracked Harrigan in the side of the head, who dropped his gun and fell to the floor. He motioned for Diamond’s two goons to come grab Harrigan and drag him over to where Milton and I were.

“Alright,” Diamond said with a smile, “now that that’s handled, here’s how this is going to work. Striker, you and Cal and the boys take this shamus and this city stooge out to my construction site and bury them where the slabs for my new buildings are going.”

Striker said, “What about Milton?”

“Don’t worry,” Diamond said, “I’ll take care of him.”

    Sorry for the dearth of drabbles this evening. I was engaged in a little social interaction. But I have finished writing this story, so now it's just a matter of getting it all posted. It still has a ways to go yet.

    You’re allowed a little social interaction Christopher. It keeps us all on tenterhooks, just like Jake was at the harbour! Hope you had a good evening. I can’t see how the hell Jake and Harrigan are gonna get outa this one, but I’ve an inkling they might...

    Thanks, Neville.

    Thanks, Jeff. I found the missing "h." As far the other, I was thinking about Jimmy Hoffa. They speculate he was buried alive at a construction site.

    I reckon at this point I'd just be grateful I'm not Milton!

    Sorry Christopher. I don't know why i put Neville and not Christopher. In my defence my brain was malfunctioning again this morning.

    Me too, Drew!

    That's fine, Jeff. I knew what you meant and I appreciated the heads up. I usually proofread better than that but I was in a rush.
