Requiem For A Stripper #356


She slammed my orange juice down in front of me, half of it sloshing out and winding up on the table top.

I looked at Harrigan, "Romero admitted to killing Honey Comb. He was having an affair with her and she wanted him to leave his wife for her."

It looked like Harrigan's brain was having a cigarette, because I swear I saw smoke coming out of his ears.

"Now," I continued, "the three charred bodies in that house were Klaus Schmidt, Horace Busby, and Anthony Romero."

His eyes glazed over when I said that.

"I'm sorry, Jim. I am."

    I think you are sorry Jake... but not sorry that Romero’s charcoal, nor that evil schmidt Schmidt. But quite sorry for Horrie!😢

    Yeah. And I think he feels bad for Harrigan.
