“You’re all angles. One minute you’re here and the next you’re 180° the other way. What the hell is wrong with you?”

“Well, I’ll tell it like this: once you’ve spend a year underground doing various things for a drug overlord…”

“A what now?”

“You heard me right. A drug overlord. Why else would I be underground?”

“Oh I dunno. Digging a tunnel for a subway maybe?”

“Is that what you thought I was doing all this time? The railroad is my life!”

“But you said…”

“What? That I was digging a subway? What else would I be doing?”

“Were you digging northward or southward?”


“Right. Westward it is.”

      • No no no! Not at all. I’ve just been incredibly busy for the last couple of days. Sorry to make you worry.
        Sometimes I like to leave things dangling a bit, to make people think or wonder, or even to let them come to their own conclusions. In this case, one of the characters is terribly unreliable, thus your slight confusion. Your feeling was likely correct. 🙂
        Just a tip though, not meant to cause you any woe or embarrassment, but something that may be better coming from me than someone less polite – many authors will get quite upset at unsolicited critique. Unless they ask for it, it’s best not to give it. I learned the hard way. It wasn’t pretty. 😛
        As always, thank you so much for your comments, Ainsworth. Again, sorry it took so long to reply.
        Cheers! 🙂
