Henry – Part 2

The conclusion of a two-part story. Read part 1 HERE.   Wherever you go, wherever you be, do not say ‘yes’ when you need to say ‘no’.   The voice was deep and masculine, in an angry American accent. “I said, what the fuck are you a$$*%$#@ doing by my car?” In the twinkle of […]

He had taken […]
