Enjoy this fun little never before published short story.
You always were a little weasel, starting with your days as a juvenile delinquent.
I tried to reason with you, but you were having none of it.
When I chased you down, you turned on me, shoved me in the trunk of your car, and drove me far into the desert.
You threw me a shovel, and made me dig a shallow grave.
Then, you made me lie in it. You aimed and fired, but missed.
Of course you ran away – leaving me to my fate.
But I am of tough stock; giving up was never an option.
It took days to find my way back to civilization.
I’ve been looking for you ever since – and now I have you in my sights.
Keep glancing over your shoulder, because I am not giving up.
I am going to make you pay your library fines if it’s the last thing I ever do.
