“Are the rumors true?”

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 7—Scene 1… Inside Silverthorn’s Café… it was quiet—no customers, just Hiram and Kiwi—perfect for the confrontation both Liam and Gypsy were expecting.

“Well,” Kiwi grinned, “Look who’s here!”

“We’ve been expecting you,” Hiram added, “Considering all the rumors coming out of Forest City these days.”

“Are the rumors true?”

“Partially,” Kiwi replied, “The ‘powers-that-be’ decided to rebuild Forest City without the casino.”

“Not only that,” Hiram added, “We had already decided to close the casino. The net profits have been dwindling dramatically over the past several months, due to the activities of some folks who have somehow figured-out a way to beat the odds.”

“Sheriff Boomer has a few leads he and the FBI have been following-up on—but as I said, these folks are clever,” Kiwi added.

“So we’re out of work.”

“No Liam,” Hiram smiled, “You’re about to be offered a new opportunity. An opportunity which will be even more profitable for you—and for us.”

­­“Tell me more.”

“We’ve opened several new ‘Silverthorn’s Fine Dining’ cafés—which also serve alcoholic beverages—our newest is in Forest City.”

“We just left there and there was no such location.”

“The village has changed dramatically since you left—you do realize we are all characters in a ‘REAL WORLD blog,’ right?”

“We’ve heard rumors.”

“They’re true,” Kiwi smiled, “Many of us have been here through nearly countless changes. For example, look at the artwork on our wall—that is how we once looked.”

“Okay, we get your point, Kiwi,” Liam had begun to get it, “Now what?”

“Let’s go look at your new house,” Kiwi grinned, “C’mon, I’ll give you the tour myself.”

Episode 7—Scene 2… They arrived at Liam and Gypsy’s new home… “Wow!” Gypsy exclaimed, “It’s not a townhouse!”

“No, it’s not a townhouse, you don’t have to deal with nosy or noisy neighbors.”

“Well—let’s see the inside,” Liam was beginning to warm-up to this new world order.

“This is the great-room,” Kiwi said, “Complete with fireplace and new furniture. On this level are your master bedroom suite, and downstairs are two more bedrooms and a full bath.”

“Oh—my!” Gypsy exclaimed, “We don’t need this much room.”

“Yes, you do.”


“Oh, my dear Gypsy,” Kiwi smiled, “You’re pregnant!”
