I carefully ease my way around the corner of an abandoned building, my 44 magnum ready to fire

I see my partner in a choke-hold with a gun pointed to his head

“Drop your gun” the criminal demands

“No” I say

The criminal says, “I’m not kidding”

I look at him and sternly say, “neither am I”

The criminal says “I mean it…I’ll shoot him”

I say, “okay, shoot him.Β  He’s nothing to me…but while your bullet is going all the way through his brain, my bullet will be going all the way through yours…so, the way I see it, you have two choices.Β  Die today or walk out of here and live to see tomorrow.”

The criminal asks me if I really expect him to believe that I will let him walk away

“We’ll meet again”, I tell him

He slowly points his gun at me.


So, what do you think happened?

  1. Oh I’ve been racking my brain.. this is why I do not read detective stories and such, cause I am terrible at guessing what is gonna happen… well mostly. (Not when its those predictable, badly written ones). But this one was a good write, seems impossible to guess… “Criminal” shoots against you, but you are faster? “You” shoot your partner? I do not know… You talk the criminal down ? This drives me crazy…πŸ˜ƒ


  2. No Laurel, I forbid you to post posts like this, when it is after 02.00 a.m. at my place… πŸ™‚ I am waaay too sleepy to have any idea! But I liked the post, though, very nice. πŸ™‚ “CSI: Laurel”. πŸ˜€
