Chapter 22

After being nearly trampled by the Official Lungfishfest© Superfloat©, and losing James yet again, Settfour found his car and was on his way to the cabin. He knew Luke would probably rip his spleen out or something, but at least they had Denise. He cautiously stepped up to the door.

“Oh, like you didn’t do? We could save a lot of trouble if I killed you right here.”
