The Repo Man

No one ever liked hearing me knocking at their door. Some hid, some fought, some cried, some even packed heat. But they all paid up in the end - I was the best goddam repo man this side of Detroit. Five years in the can when I was just out of school made sure I knew the tricks of the trade.

The last one was known as a tough cookie. He had form, some thought he was a stool-pigeon, a real cake-eater. Walking up to his house I saw him in the window. Was he packing? He looked smug, that’s for sure, best house on the street.

I reached the front door.

Knock.

“Not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin,” came the reply.

This one was a lush, ‘fuck’s sake…’ I muttered under my breath, this was going to be a tough one…

khuckeby: Overall a good read. I enjoyed the story line and felt as if it kept an air of mystery. I would like to have seen the old cop visit again with more of an explanation for his first visit from his perspective.
