The bookies assistant Part III

so the gun just sits there?

She’s an Amazonian warrior – i’m telling ya.

amazonian?

Ppl have gone into that house
and she’s been wearing war paint
chain mail underwear
and music in the background that sounds like – chanting

chanting?

Chanting.
i’m telling ya – that gun
it’s never actually been cleaned
it just sits there on the table – for aesthetics

you mean like – just for looks?

Man – you tell me which would scare ya more…
a regular gun in yer face -or- someone who lives on a rumour.
a rumour that says the bookies assistant can eviscerate you….
quicker than a bullet can kill ya

i am. never. placing. a bet. again.

Not with her anyways.
