Danger Bay—Episode 27—Swigs (continued)!

Story By Ines Hegedus-GarciaImage of “swigs!” ©2007 New Codger

From Episode 25: “…and Mac sensing things were about to get out of hand, was just turning to face Big A, when he was hit by a well-aimed beer mug…”

Mac, stunned, grabbed the table-top and was shaking his head trying to recover from the unprovoked attack, and I was incensed that such a thing could happen in my place, much less in Danger Bay. I ran to intercept Simpson who was moving towards Mac:

Whoa – whoa gentlemen!” I said very firmly, “there will be no beer spilling within the confinements of my bar!”

Hey lady,” Simpson said loudly, “Butt out! This is none of your business!”

Have you totally lost your mind?” I said, standing directly in front of Simpson, looking defiantly up into his face, “I don’t know about the rest of Danger Bay but you are no longer welcomed at Swigs!

Molly, rightly sensing I might need a little support moved quickly towards me while calling out, “Hy, Sam, Trigg, Lar—c’mon! Ines needs our help!

Even Sarah, her eyes flashing, ran over to help, as Molly continued, “Let’s escort Big A to the door!”

Surprisingly enough, Simpson allowed himself to be escorted outside without resisting.

Mayor Gamboge standing there shaking his head said “Ines, this cannot be good for business.”

“I’ve never liked that guy from the first time I laid eyes on him,” I replied, “I was waiting for an excuse to banish him from Swigs. Now to celebrate! Drinks for everyone – on the house!

No one noticed that Mac had left Swigs until we heard what sounded like a scuffle outside. It was over as quick as it started, and Mac returned, his large face decorated with an even larger grin.Image Smilin’ Mac ©2007 New Codgers

Hmmm—wonder why he’s so happy—oh never mind, I think I know!
