I tried to be coy and stand offish, attempting to ignore your seductive prose, but your compelling story and colorful characters with their wonderful turn of phrase just sucked me right in and I had no desire to climb out.

Great storytelling my friend

I like your writing usually, this one like all you do was complete 'Hump.' I found it took a bit of ploughing through and was a tad cartoonish, none-the-less it was all you. Hope you win. Sincerely Mabaker12.

What happens when two mobsters get too old to play the game? They invent a new one. Feet and Kermit are well-drawn characters in a difficult situation. The reader wonders if this story could work as the beginning of a highly entertaining novel. Well done, Lee. :) Nancy

    Thank you, Nancy. Yeah, even button-men get old and tired. It's always good to create a story with sequel potential. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

What an exceptional story. Well done. I was hooked from the very beginning. I'm reluctant to give out my sixes this early in the week, but when you've got a story like this, it would be criminal not to do it. Surely you must have some books in print or on the way. I'll check out some of your other stories. I really enjoyed this.

    Thank you, Tom. I'm so glad you enjoyed. I've done some on-line publishing, but, honestly, I'm looking to build up a stronger portfolio before I approach traditional publishers. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

You just get better with age(So how in the hell old are you?), your plots are more complex, characters real, and you always manage to put that little unexpected twist in at the last, a subtle 180 that surprising, but also satisfactory. And, I get the feeling there just might be a sequel to this story, eh?
Cheers, irish

    Thanks so much, Irish. I'm only seventy years old, so I don't want to rush my development. I've been working on my plots recently. And, yes, I think this story requires a sequel. Thanks again, my friend. Peace, Lee

That ending was a surprise. Bobby was a rat, and most rats are trapped eventually. Perhaps Feet considered him a small enough rat to actually be a mouse. He's mighty lucky the cat isn't interested in retirement.

    Thank you, Cindy. I get the feeling the cat is still playing with the mouse. We'll see. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

Quite a cast of characters--you nailed 'em all! A feast of delectable tidbits-- wickedly witty snark--startling closer--is this part of a longer story? Just curious--it's brilliant as is.

CONGRATS! (review updated)

That is a one in a million ending. It is true 'sometimes' that people get do tend to change as they are aging. I have hardly ever heard of a Hitman doing a 180. So this was a refreshing end to the story.

My last six...Glad I saved it. Lee, I don't know where you get your ideas. Well written with rich characters. I enjoyed the read!
--like dropping a cow turd in an Easter basket and calling it a jelly bean.
(Maybe you're not a country boy; cow turds are big, maybe a rabbit turd?)

    Thank you, Bill. Yeah, I've seen cow turds. I thought the size differential enhanced the absurdity of the simile. Glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee
