Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day

 

 

It is Wednesday Story Day again, and last week we learned that one of the hitmen after Larry and Andrew is a former Serbian secret service guy. The lieutenant knows a guy who is a Serbian crime lord. The Lieutenant doesn’t think the guy is involved but might know something. He and our guys were just getting ready to leave when the Major of the highway patrol came in.  He reported that there is a rumor on the street of a contract on Larry and Andrew but nothing concrete. Let’s catch up with the Lieutenant, Larry and, Andrew as they arrive at the location of the Serbian crime lord’s place.

 

“I’m glad the Major decided not to come. I think it would have spooked my guy?”

“You have a name for this guy?”

“Nikola Stanković. Of course, this would be like John Smith here.”

“Popular name in Serbia.”

“The most popular.”

“Could be a fake.”

“Wouldn’t surprise me. Let me do the talking. These guys know me.”

“You hang around them a lot?”

“No, but I have put a number behind bars, and as Nikola once said, “Mrzim te, ali imaš čast.”

“Okay. I’ll bite.”

“I hate you, but you have honor.”

“Well, that is a happy note.”

“I hear someone coming to the door. Stand back, we don’t want to spook him.”

“Da?”

“Hello. My name is Lieutenant Mayfield with two friends, and we would like to see Mr. Stanković.”

“You have appointment, yes?”

“Well, we don’t have an appointment, but as an old friend, I’m sure he will see us.”

“Here, you wait.”

“How tall is that guy anyway?”

“I would say six-feet ten. Not one to mess with for sure. Here he comes.”

“Mr. Stanković will see you. Hands above your head.”

“Just do as he says. He will take your weapon, but from experience, I always get it back.”

“Be careful with that, Boris?”

“Not Boris. Vlado. Follow me.”

“These guys have a minimal sense of humor, Larry. Let me do the talking.”

“Ah, humor. Boris funny guy in Serbia. How you say funny stuff?”

“Comedy?”

“Da. Good joke, he does. Count of Serbs to kill vodka bottle?”

“Okay, Vlado. How many?”

“None.”

“None?”

“They drink bottle. Only kill people.”

“Okay, then. That was a good one.”

“Here, wait. Mr. Stanković comes.”

  5. Nothing like a little humor to make your point. I can’t say I’m fond of the idea of giving up the guns. I hope this works out for these boys. They could use a break.

    My goodness, 6’10” and not a member of the NBA, something’s definitely fishy. At least we have a jokester, maybe there’s hope – or not!

    1. Hope is all relative. There is a universality of humor that might be misleading. Thanks, Gwen.

  9. Six foot ten? Probably should’ve been recruited to play basketball in the States. Of course, the way this virus is hanging around, nobody would get to see him play!
