He who Sows Winds will Reap in Whirlwinds: Part IX

So Harrison was dead, good riddance in a way. He had never met such a bumbling psychopath before. The two pesky kids were locked in the room. He had to admit that his dialogue about the painless and painful death had been brilliant. He allowed himself a dry smile. He had an hour to check in at the clinic. He didn't want the new receptionist to suspect something. He didn't need another body to dispose of right now. The last one had been problematic enough. Overdose of heroin had been a good idea though. "Look after the prisoners. Especially the girl.", he barked at one of his henchmen. Robinson, the fellow's name was he thought. "If anything happens and they manage to escape I will personally shoot you in the heart", he menaced, "Robinson" he added. For effect. To show everyone that he knew exactly whom he was talking to. "Umm", Robinson shuffled his feet. "Speak up, man, speak up. You're not a debutante at her coming out party." "Sir, the name's Robertson", Robinson mumbled. "Robinson-Robertson, pot-ay-to-pot-ah-to, what difference does it make?" he was irritated now. Trivialities. He walked out, got into the waiting car and drove away. Robertson smiled disarmingly at the other thugs in the room. "I'm just going to go check on the prisoners", he said. The rest of them ignored him. No one knew where he'd come from. The thugs were used to knowing everyone in their social circle. And the strangeness of this man disturbed them.
She was waking up. Kevin almost wished she wouldn't. He felt wretched. And a little embarrassed that he hadn't even managed to hit one thug while she'd faced down five of them. He supposed she'd crow about it. "Look at the big picture", he told himself, "That is not the important part of it". She stirred. She fingered the blood on her forehead. "Don't worry about it, we'll get through. You couldn't have done anything", she whispered. "Those were my lines", he said. She grinned at him. "Did anyone come in? What happened when I was knocked out? How long have you been awake?" They both heard a shuffle outside the door. The knob was turning. "Shhh.."
