The Littlest Client #71


The assailant turned and fired at the door. I ducked my head back and heard the slug burying into the plaster wall. I looked back and saw he was out on the fire escape so I came into the room. Rucksack was lying on his back on the floor with blood still coming out of the hole between his eyes.

I went out the window. The gunman was already down to the bottom fire escape, but the ladder was locked.

He looked back up at me and fired. The bullet ricocheted off of the metal handrail in front of me...

    Shame ‘bout Rucksack, it was he himself who was on his back after all! I reckon the bullet that zeroed him was intentional and weren’t no Rickyshay!
