Sheriff Thompson showed up maybe 15 minutes later.  He was in his own car.  He drove a classic 1974 Pontiac Trans AM.  It was a perfect car for him.  All muscle, no brain.

Bob and the Sheriff had clashed before.  Mostly when they were drinking at the local watering hole/restaurant/post office.  Bob liked baseball and the Sheriff liked football.  It was mostly playful banter but Bob didn’t like the Sheriff.  He knew the Sheriff could be a prick.

‘So what happened here Bob?’

‘Sheriff I don’t rightly know.  I was in the house when I heard a loud explosion.’

‘Hey, did you hear that sound?  Sounded like a bomb went off.’ –Bob said.


‘No, what are you talking about?’ Sam replied from the other garage.


‘How the fuck didn’t you hear that?  That loud boom.  You remember that one time we did practice target on a propane tank across the lawn?  It was like that.’


There was no reply from Sam.


‘Sam, what are you doing in there?’  Bob left his desk and went into the garage to see what Sam was doing.


He saw Sam lying on the ground bleeding from what was left of his right arm.
