The Box, Part 1

I held my breath and waited. I could feel the blood pounding in my ears. After an eternity Fuck Me Eddy lowered his pistol and eased the hammer down. He didn’t say a word.

I’d been trying to think of what I could have possibly done that warranted a trip to the garage alone with Fuck Me Eddy. Then it came to me. I remembered asking Junior one night where he got his supply of Mannitol and Lidocaine. That stuff was harder to come by than […]
