Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day

 

“I can almost smell Friday, Lucy.”
“Better nose than mine Little One.”

It is Wednesday Story Day again, and last week we got yet another surprise in the form of a billionaire who kindly asked Andrew and Larry to go back to Boston. It looks like whoever is the top dog they are pretty influential in getting a billionaire in their hip pocket. Well, the offer has been made, and the billionaire is waiting for Larry’s response. Let’s hustle cause I think we all would like to know what Larry has to say.

“Do we have a deal, Mr. Nobel? I don’t think so.”

“Uh, Mr. Dunfee, I would think over my offer very carefully if I were you.”

“Excuse me Larry but can you and I have a moment?”

“Mr. Nobel is there a place Andrew and I can talk?”

“I’ll leave, and you can have this room.”

“No offense but we need to talk in private. How about the front porch?”

“By all means. Let me call Terrance to escort you there.”

“No need. We left breadcrumbs.”

“Huh? Oh, I get it a joke. Very well, I’ll wait for you here.”

“Come on, Andrew. Let’s go outside.”

“Right behind you, boss.”

“Okay, we are out of earshot, Andrew. What do you want to say?”

“I think the best course of action is for us to get back to Boston and conduct our investigation from there.”

“What the hell, Andrew. We have a search warrant burning a hole in our pocket, and we are only steps away from proving Rafferty’s wife lied to us and we can hopefully get some proof that she was in the hotel here in South Lake Tahoe when she said she was in Boston.”

“I know, I know. Is trying to prove someone lied worth getting your head shot off?”

“You really think those bozos would do that?”

“Did you look at them?”

“Well yeah, of course.”

“Then yes. I think they could do that.”

“Okay so we go back to Boston. How do we conduct the investigation?”

“I think we get the DA to issue a few warrants and get to the truth that way.”

“That does make some sense.”

“We are on our own here, Larry. You already got a hole in your shoulder, and for what?”

“Justice.”

“Fine we can still get Justice from Boston, and we will be in our own jurisdiction.”

“Okay Andrew. I’m going to take your advice, after all, I’m paying you too much to simply ignore it.”

“Spoken like a true boss, boss.”

“Let’s go back inside and let ole Jason Nobel know he has a deal.”

“Excellent.”

“If this goes south, I’m going to kick your butt.”

“I will happily receive such a kick, your lordship.”

“You know Andrew, sometimes you take the fun out of things.”

“My plan, sir.”

  1. Andrew does have a point. Though I wonder how far Noble’s reach goes.

  3. “We left breadcrumbs.” Lol! Kind of a smart aleck, eh? They’ll have a hard time finding a DA to issue a warrant since they don’t have the power to do so.

    1. Yeah, should have said, friendly judge. But at least the DA won’t be trying to put them in jail.

    That was a fun exchange, though I wonder about the outcome. I don’t trust Noble, and I suspect he’ll reappear. But for now, we must wait. Bummer. 🙂

  6. ‘Noble’, huh? Sounds fishy! I’m thinking Hymie Pfartzengiggle and ‘Noble’ have a lot in common! Just saying! My source: a plastic surgeon…

  8. Well, well. That was not the reaction I expected from Larry. But, maybe they do need to go back and get some more tips from Gloria. 🙂 They certainly have gathered a good amount of options to consider.

  10. Or how’s about they just pull an Axel Foley and assure the locals they’re leaving town, while laying low and finishing things up.

    Sure, there’s gonna be fireworks involved in that stunt. But hey . . it’s gonna be entertaining. 😉

  11. Oh… I’m gobsmacked that Larry became reasonable. Now I’m really worried about what might happen when they go back inside. You sure know how to keep us on the hook, John. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Yeah, don’t worry. They already told Nobel that they’ll take the deal. He’s got his goons assigned to take them to their car and then to the hotel to get packed. So smoo0th sailing. Oh-oh who’s that at the hotel?

  12. Given that shots have already been fired, I think working from a distance might be a good idea. If they have to come back, maybe the can bring a little muscle or at least have an invite from the local authorities. Still, I’d take a crack at the night desk at that hotel – as long as they have to warrant, what’s the harm in asking? Well, yea, bullets, but…

  17. I really thought Larry would say no. It’s not like him to back down, even in the face of 2 vs the rest of the evil empire. Let’s hope Andrew’s common sense getting back to Boston gives them an edge.
