Time I left Roy’s, my head was a swirl of liquor and the lattice of leads stabbed harsh into my temple. Figured that’s what brought the frown until I noticed that I was staring at the open hood of my car.
I kept nothing in it – but the lever is beneath my dashboard.
I took a few steps towards it like wading through shit and placed my hand on the wing. Empty darkness.
My vision blacked out before I registered the blow.
My head reeled as if falling back but I could feel strong arms tipping me into the trunk.
