“Can they be trusted?”

Hunting Banner ©JBoardman PREVIOUSLY: “Well,” Smith was impressed with the Comfort Suites Hotel and his room, “That’s as good a hideout as I’ve ever had.”

“Wait until you see one of the freighters come through the canal. Let’s walk out—there’s a big boat getting ready to enter.”

“By all means,” he replied, “I could get into this tourist thing.”

There weren’t very many other tourists on the South Pier—they’d been caught on the North Pier as the lift-bridge was raised. Smith and his escorts were alone when they reached the lighthouse.

Smith and his escorts were alone when they reached the lighthouse.

They were also alone when Jones pulled the trigger of his pistol just as the boat’s horn sounded.

His body was slipped into the canal.

Season 16—Adventure 3—Hunting—Episode 9—Scene 1—On the Highway, Headed North… “That worked-out better than I could have imagined,” a very-satisfied Jon Jones said, “Smith’s body was sucked under that boat, and churned-up!”

Sheppard Williams was riding in the old T-Bird with Jones, “Yes—it was a sight to see.”

“I didn’t like the blood & body-parts bubbling-up all that much,” Jones replied, “But—Juco should be happy.”

“What about Wood & Hale?”

Jones & Company Northbound ©JBoardman“What about Wood & Hale?”

“We’ll give them a chance, Shep.”

“And if?”

“We’ll invite them on a road-trip.”

“Roger THAT!”

Episode 9—Scene 2—At the Blue Sparrow Motel Café… The place was quiet—breakfast was over, and the lunch-rush wouldn’t begin for another hour or so—a perfect time for Jonathan Jones to talk with Jack Wood and Mike Hale. Besides himself, the only other customers were Joey and Boomer.

Jones trusted these two men—although he thought Boomer a little too old.

Still—the man seemed to have dangerous in his demeanor.

He really didn’t want to take another trip to Duluth or Superior. He’d much rather fold them into his crew.

“Good morning, gentlemen,” Jones greeted as Wood & Hale came into the café, “You’re right on time.”

“Good morning,” Hale returned the greeting, “Where’s Smith?”

“Dead,” Jones replied, “Does that matter?”

“Not to us,” Wood said—smiling.

“What are they doing here?” Hale asked, “Can they be trusted?”

“Juco thinks so,” Jones replied, “He had a problem with Mr. Smith—no one else.”

“The broads too?”

“Especially the ‘broads’ as you so inelegantly put it,” Jones laughed, “You don’t want to mess with ANY of those women. They’ll hand you your heads on a platter.”

“Ya think?”

Thus, ends this Adventure—but our story? To be CONTINUED…
