The Adventures Of Boner And Stink – Part 3

We moved the Cadillac to a secure location and laid low for a couple of days. I heard rumbles through the grapevine about Thor being more than a little pissed over the disappearance of one of his cars and what he planned to do to the rat bag that had stolen it.

It was a tense couple of days waiting to see what came next but the news died out so it looked like a good time to approach Thor and inquire about the possibility of getting my car back. I decided to leave Stink at home in case his mouth should get the better of him.

I called up Thor and told him I’d like a meeting. He was in a foul mood but agreed to see me. I rolled up to his place and took some deep breaths before I went in.

“Hey Thor, my man, how’s it by you?”

He eyed me up and down a bit longer that I was comfortable with but I stood my ground.

“Well I’ll tell ya, Boner, it’s not much to my liking. I’ve got a little problem.”

“I’m sorry to hear that Thor.” I wasn’t stupid enough to inquire.

“What do you want Boner?”

“Well, you know that car you won off me in that poker game? To tell you the truth I miss it, Thor. I was wondering if you’d consider selling it back to me.”

He came out of his seat like greased lightening and pinned me to the wall by the neck. I could swear my eyes were bulging, but I didn’t react.

“You a funny man, is that it Boner?”

“What do you mean, Thor”, I croaked.

“Some asshole stole a ride not unlike the one I got from you. You wouldn’t happen to know who that might be now, would you?”

“Jesus Christ, Thor, I just came here to ask if you’d sell me my ride back, I don’t know nothing from nothing. I’ve been under the weather of late, I’m not up on current events.”

He relaxed his grip on my neck and gave me a penetrating stare, then let me go. He went back to his seat and sat there staring at me as his henchmen gave me the evils.

“Why so interested in the ride now, Boner?”

“Hell, Thor, I miss it. It was a good ride. I been rolling around in this piece of crap Toyota ever since the game and I just thought maybe you didn’t need it and I could buy it back.”

“So you’re flush again, is that it? Just where’d you get money, Boner?”

“You know me, Thor, I wheel and deal.”

He threw his head back and laughed. “I’d hate to think you’re playing me, Boner.”

I just stood there and looked at him. The less you say to a guy like Thor the better. I knew he was looking for clues. I was starting to wonder if I’d blown it by trying this gambit. Thor looked thoughtful for a moment, then picked up his beer and took a swig. He slammed the bottle down on the table and leaned forward.

“I’ll tell you what, you find my ride for me and bring me the piece of shit that stole it from me and then we can talk about your car.”

“But Thor, I don’t – “

“Get the fuck out of here! You heard my deal, now leave, or my boys here will have to escort you out.”

His trained monkeys made menacing gestures so I headed for the door. It was not going to be my day.
