That’s What People Do

What was his business?

He sold used cars.

What kind?

All kinds. Pickups, station wagons, mini-vans,SUV’s, even had some of those Hummers.

Was he honest?

He was a salesman. I know that much ’bout him. He had those cars polished. Spic and span they were. Hubcaps, everything. The cars had a glow ’bout em.

Who’d wanna kill this guy? Was he well liked? Have any vices?

People liked him. I know he used to bet on horses. That can be a vice. A problem in somebody’s life. Don’t you think so? Maybe he gambled on other things too, football, baseball, everything. You know, they still won’t let Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame. Damn shame. Un-American.

Price you pay.

Was there a lot of blood at the scene? Of the crime. The scene of the crime. Blood everywhere?

Yes. A real mess you could say.

Just curious.

Yeah. Looks like the damage was done with a ball bat. Blows to the head. Took the money and ran.

That’s what people do?

Yes. That’s what people do.

The writing is based on my surroundings and what I've been surrounded by. This language is coarse and politically incorrect; which I make no apologies for. These characters are not nice and to use any other dialogue would be disingenuine. That being said, I choose to roll the dice. dm seay
