“Sauron, the Inquisitor,” they both say in unison, “The One Ring of Power.”

“Don’t even think of doing anything funny,” Sauron says.  He is standing in the doorway wiping the remainder of  Goslin’s sneeze off his coat. Behind him two big oafs are standing with what appear to be Smith and Wesson 45’s pointed right at Goslin and Mc Adams’ hearts.

“What the hell are you doing here?” says Mc Adams. She’s placed her hands on her hips to broadcast her displeasure. “You were supposed to keep track of Darlene. What happened?”

“None of your lip missy. Plans have changed. People have different loyalties now.  I have these two guys to make sure you don’t get out of control. Now take those guns of yours out very carefully with two fingers and put them easy like on the floor.”

“You double crossing son of a goat poker,” says Goslin. “What? Did someone else pay you more to turn on us?”

“I’d be real careful about name calling you little punk. These two guys here are just itching to take you for a long one way trip to nowhere. Put the guns on the floor.”

“Here’s mine,” says Mc Adams. “See I’m holding it with two fingers just like you said. I’m going to lower it to the floor just like you said. We don’t want any trouble and I’m sure Goslin the pig didn’t mean to call you a goat poker.”

“You are a smart lady and not bad-looking if I may say so myself.”

“Why Sauron I never thought you cared. Okay I am placing the gun on the floor.” Mc Adams spreads her legs just a little as she bends her knees to place the gun on the floor.

“You also have a fine-looking set of pins.”

“Sauron. Why don’t you tell me why you are working for that lowlife Ted Needham.”

“You have got to be kidding me. I’m not working for that slodge. In fact, remind me to punch a hole in his skull the next time I see him.”

“Who the hell are you working for then? We thought we had you bought off right proper with the last payment. You were supposed to keep track of Darlene and let us know where she is.”

“Yeah well sorry about that. I found myself a new buyer who was willing to double what you two cheapskates offered. Hey I can still do the deal with you if you want to raise the price above my current retainer.”

“Well you can just kiss my ass,” Goslin says. He whips his .357 magnum out of his holster and before anyone can react he fires six quick rounds. Mc Adams pulls her gun off the floor and while in the squatting position lets go with six rounds of her own in less time than it takes to say the words six rounds.

There is a stunned look on Sauron’s face as the smoke begins to clear.

This ends my contribution. Stay tuned for the next segment by Hazy Shades of Me



  1. Oh, Sauron, didn’t see him coming, great link. I wonder who he’s working for? It’s so much fun not knowing where the next person takes it 🙂


    1. Thank you. It is so much fun


  2. Reblogged this on The Community Storyboard and commented:
    Read the next update in our chain saga! 🙂


  3. Hahaha! Great job! I like that you brought out the big guns. I was expecting as much from a guy who wrote a novel about terrorists. I am glad you had the crime angle on this. Now, I want to see who is left standing, if anyone, when the smoke clears. Is Sauron going to fall, or did they aim high and shoot low enough?


    1. Thanks. You know I had to do it. LOL on high or low


  4. Eep! Shoot out at the station…That’s a lot of flying bullets flying around. Nicely done, John. This is becoming great fun – I look forward to it each evening. I still feel sorry for the poor person who has to tie all of the together in the end.


    1. Thank you. I agree it will be a tough job.


  5. Awesome! Totally wasn’t expecting it to be Sauron!


  6. This is great, John! I was itching for a good, old-fashion shoot out 😉


    1. Hopefully the two goons get it and we find out more about the double cross.


    1. Thank you sooooo much 🙂


  7. A shoot out was a great idea John. I imagine the person who goes last could be in for a tough time.


    1. I think you may be right. Heh heh heh.
