Previously: “According to the ‘hull-speed calculator,’ this boat will only go about 10mph, maximum speed,” Linda was a bit disappointed—especially after hitting 500mph in her P51 Mustang.
“It’s your house, Linda,” Boomer laughed, “How fast does your house in Chippewa Falls go?”
“Point taken—but still…”
“It may not be as bad as you think—let’s take her out.”
Meanwhile—At the McOsker Cabin…
“Where’s Liam?” Boss McOsker bellowed…
Adventure Six—CASINO—Episode Three…
…as he came down from his upstairs office—no one was willing to answer—no one dared!
On his arm was Bambi—almost dead-ringer for Gypsy. Gypsy had all she could do not to stare.
“Do I need to repeat myself?”
“No Boss,” Carrick Brannock replied, “He tried to call you on the communicator Juco gave us—you didn’t answer—so he called me.”
“Yeah—one of you guys show me how they work. What did he tell you?”
“He said he had a couple of prospects for us—a mean one-eyed fella an’ a woman hit-lady—who has her own custom Thompson! Says she really knows how to handle that gat—way better than ours!”
“Really? Look—you fellas spread-out and visit every low-life dive bar you can find,” Boss McOsker was both surprised and impressed at what Liam had done, “Also see if you can find a couple more cars—modern ones—so we fit-in a little better—got it?”
It was then that Bambi noticed Gypsy standing alone. She approached her, “Looks like Daddy played around more than I thought—you must be related to me!”
“Could be” replied Gypsy trying to sound very nonchalant, “Who would that Daddy be?”
“Larry Goodall and my mother was Mary—sound like someone you know?”
“Yes,” replied Gypsy with disdain in her voice, “That would be the man who used his bodily fluids to contribute to my birth, but as far as his being DADDY in any sort of loving nurturing way that he was not. I met Mary once just before they shipped me off to the foster system. She did not want me around. I was surprised DADDY allowed it since he saw me as his plaything.”
Bambi laughed out loud, but Gypsy saw a flash of pain in her eyes, “Yes he wanted me to be his plaything also, I tried to tell mother about the touching and his coming in my room and staring at me while he thought I was asleep like he was just waiting for me to be ripe.”
“What did she say?”
“Hey you two—quit your jaw-flapping, and listen-up!” Boss McOsker tolerated no inattention, “We have a lot to do if we’re gonna get a piece of the action around here!’
