“Hey, Pete! That center light’s not working!”
“Got it, Mario. Hang on a sec.”
Pete limped through the backstage maze toward the catwalk. Halfway up the rolling steel mesh stairs he heard, “Look, Pete, if you can’t get that fixed right now, Stella’s gonna fry our heads and dip ’em in ranch for her dinner.”
“Mario, I got it! Just hang on one second while I plug it back in!”
As he reached over the catwalk’s railing to grab the light cord, he heard a horrific crash as Kyle knocked the stairs over, crushing Mario, followed by a disembodied voice muttering, “Damn prick had that coming.”
Whoops! I almost forgot to publish! It was done on Friday, I promise! :>
Because I had used a video tie-in for Kyle the Reaper’s first appearance, I thought it would be fun to include one here, too. Luckily, I found that WOTE video — which I had never heard or seen before. I think it suits the story quite well.
