Episode #22 sends former detective Robert Gibson back to the gas station, what he finds ain't pretty... this is the fourth part of a series that started with Episode #16 Special Occasion, and continued with parts two and three last month.
Here's a preview to get you going:
Rob felt the pain in his knuckles. He rubbed his hands together hoping the heat would help, but the storm was coming fast. Rob lit a cigarette successfully despite the wind and paused to smoke and think. Rob assumed the clerk was dead, but he was then overcome with the sense that the boy had not yet reached a point of redemption from whatever depths he had fallen to. He was working a shit job, and he was trying to make the best with what he had. He was taking advantage of the chance if that’s what it was. Rob felt wrong for doubting the clerk. What he said about the wolves was true enough. The boy understood evil, maybe because he had been a close party to it recently. He hadn’t understood enough to avoid it entirely, or else he still underestimated how it could turn on him, being the way young men are. Now he was dead, or running through the woods with a bullet in him. He was a true innocent in this case, and Rob had failed him by not seeing the shape of it sooner.
Going on road trip this summer? Maybe a long flight?
