Example text

No, I mean it,” he said. ” “I’m going home now, Alex. ” “Edwin,” I said. ” “I’m going home, Alex. ” “Thank you, Alex. ” “I’m going to buy you dinner. ” He went up to the bar and put a few bills in Jackie’s hand, pointing back at me. And then with a wave he was out the door. I couldn’t stop myself from smiling. There was something about the man, I just couldn’t bring myself to hate him. In a way, he was just like my old partner, Franklin. Edwin was barely five foot four, shaped like a pickle barrel, as white as a man can be, richer than hell, and a compulsive gambler.

Goddamn it. I thought I was over this. I thought it was gone. As I pulled into my driveway, I tried to remember where I had put those pills. I hadn’t taken them for so long. And only on the bad nights. Just to get through those bad nights. I had to find those pills. Just this once. One more time. I needed to sleep. Just a couple hours. I needed to close my eyes and not see Franklin on the floor next to me. I found the pills in the back of my medicine cabinet. Without looking at myself in the mirror, I took one, and then another.

Jackie went over the bridge every week to get good beer from Canada, just one more reason to love the place. I forgot all about trailer parks and pissed-off ex-private eyes for a while. I figured that was enough drama for one night. I figured I was allowed to relax a little bit and maybe even start to feel human again. But the night had other plans for me. Because that’s when Edwin Fulton had to come into the place. Excuse me, Edwin J. Fulton the third. And his wife, Sylvia. They just had to pick this night to drop by.
