Previously: “Who else? Flutters. He seems to hang-around me all the time anyway.”
“I can’t imagine Flutters trying to handcuff anybody,” Chris laughed.
“But—you CAN imagine him observing problems and letting me know.”
“Then, it seems settled. With a little help from your ‘time-bender,’ Cujo, we can bring back an adobe building which would make a fine jail,” Cantrell was happy with any help Yatkowsky, no matter how temporary, offered.
Soon the jail—with no small help from the Beagamute—was back in place, and Larry began his reign as the town marshal of Fort Justice.
It would not be a good start for the Larrys!
Chapter 7—Loco Part IV, Fort Justice—Episode 10…As promised—by the time Larry and Flutters walked out of La Cantina, the new/old building was in place—and already modified into a passable marshal’s office.
The building looked as if it had been in that spot for years rather than mere minutes. Even the hardy desert weeds looked as if they’d been there for a very-long time, “Flutters, let’s take a look.”
The office was small, but complete with a jail cell, personal quarters (not shown, but within the personal quarters they found a carrier pigeon door to the outside so Flutters could—well, you know—powder his beak).
It soon became clear that Larry’s day wouldn’t end well—when a man, who looked like an ordinary citizen-extra on any old western walked into the office.
He was holding a Henry Rifle and pointing it roughly in Yatkowsky’s direction, “You’ll come with me, marshal, or die right there where you’re standing.”
“Could we stop next door and get a beer, first?”
