He he he he... she chuckled as he reached for his chest and steadied his racing heart.
Apparently even the silent giant is capable of extreme emotions!
Bambi beat a quick exit.
Big Louie frowned and shooed her away. "Not now, Bambi. I'm exhausted! I want the bed to myself."
Big Louie rolled onto his side. "SCAT!" he ordered with his eyes closed.
Slick slipped into the chair next to Johnny, distracting him. "So, Butterfingers and I were trying to figure out who the rat is..."
Johnny rolled his eyes. "God help us all," he said sarcastically.
Slick continued on as though he wasn't interrupted, "So, what do ya know about Weasel. We've never seen him before. He said you grew up with him?"
Slick glanced back towards Armando. "I don't know about him, Remmy. But if you say he's cool..."
"Yeah, sure, he's cool."
Red glared at him over Bambi's shoulder, subtly shaking her head at him.
"Uh... maybe we should talk a little later when we have a bit more privacy, Bambi," he said at quietly as possible.
"Come on, Remmy! I gotta go!" Butterfingers pleaded on the other side of the door.
"Hold your damn horses!" Johnny shouted back, making sure he was good and clean before stepping out of the shower.
"I don't know how!" Slick said fretfully.
But, an idea started to form...
Slipping under the sink, he turned off the water at the valve.
"I got this one," Johnny said. "Be back in a jiff."
Big Louie shook his head. "Sometimes if you want something done, you have to do it yourself. And then eliminate the ones that couldn't get the job done for you!"
Red shook her head and placed the dishes in the sink. "Any idea when Remmy'll be back with that part? He's been gone awhile."
"He'll be back once he gets the part!" Big Louie barked. "As if you could do it any better than he could!"
Red scoffed. As if she didn't know a thing or two about sinks. She slipped under the sink and began fiddling around. Hmm... looks like the water was just shut off... She turned it back on and tested it.
Tiny T. glanced over at Johnny. "Red fixed it. You must not know much about plumbing," he scoffed.
Johnny slapped his palm to his head. "Damn! Guess we don't need this part after all. Slick - you still owe me $15, you meat-head!"
Slick scoffed, but came over and shoved the cash at Johnny. He did not want to piss Remmy off...
