I started down the stairs, hoping I'd find my gun along the way. I reached the stairs to the first floor and still hadn't found it. My only hope was that Stan North didn't have a gun on him. He saw me as I descended the stairs and pulled a pistol from under his jacket. Apparently the City Planner's Office was a rough place if they were packing heat.

I vaulted over the stairs' handrail and took cover behind a stack of crates. I might could bluff North into thinking I had a gun.

"It's over, North. Drop your weapon."

    (Penultimate line...’could’ shouldn’t be there? I think maybe you deleted ‘see if I’ in the edit and could was a clingon?)

    Exciting stuff, puke included.

    Thanks, Neville. I thought it sounded okay, like if "might could" was replacing "may be able to." Maybe that's a Southern thing.
