Cliffhangers, Inc. Chapter Two
By: L. Craig Woods


Charlie didn't make a sound as he dropped the two stories to the alley below, but his body made quite the 'thud!' when it hit. Hal limped over and helped Todd to his feet.

"You okay?" Hal asked.

"Yeah. He got close a couple of times, but never connected."

"Good." Together they moved to the window and looked down. Charlie lay on his back in the middle of a large trash dumpster, amid the remains of aquatic entrails and severed fish heads. "And people wonder where we get the ideas for our stories," Hal added with a smile.

"Yeah, right," Todd said, then pointed at the dumpster. "Crap, dude, look. He's starting to move around."

"Damn. We better get outta here," Hal noted.

"Okay, okay," Todd agreed and they both headed for the front door.

Dodging smashed furniture, they were almost to the door when Hal asked, "Hey, did you send off those chapters to 'Cliffhangers'?"

Todd slapped himself in the forehead. "No! Charlie interrupted me and I didn't get to it."

"Grab the disc, then," Hal said, looking at the wall clock. "We just have time to get it over to them, in person."

"Right." Todd ran back and popped the disc out of the computer, slipped it into a plastic sleeve and rejoined Hal, putting the disc in his pocket. "Okay, let's go."

They reached the door and Hal said, "Nobody'd going to believe this story, you know, dude?"

"Hell, I don't even believe it," Todd said with a wide grin and opened the door, then suddenly backed up, causing Hal to bump into him.

"Youse boys goin' someplace?" a gravelly voice asked from the doorway.

Hal looked over Todd's shoulder and saw Manny standing there, looking not at all pleased. He also had a small caliber pistol pointed directly at their chests.

"So, where's Charlie at and where's my 'money'!" Manny demanded.

"Oh, crap," Hal muttered.
