Two figures were walking down the road in silence. They were heading to Kiam’s house, where the council was taking place. It was early in the morning and one of them still had a wolf-like appearance: the tail was still there and the face still had that dynamic feeling to it.
And in that awful silence……..a phone rang.
One of the two men hesitated but quickly answered:
“Oi, you there?”
“How long will it take you to get here? …Hey am I on the speaker right now?”
“Err….no.”, the man lied. “The new target?”
“Comp. Hurry up. We have the detective. Comp’s the wolf so we might have troubles putting our hands on him.”
The man glanced sideways at Comp. In an instant, unspoken agreement they both turned around and ran, and didn’t stop until they’d put several houses between them and where they had been standing a couple of minutes ago. Comp ran expecting something to hit him in the back of the neck. Possibly the world.
The two of them landed in a ditch and lay there panting.
“ARE WE SAFE HERE?”
“I’M ASKING YOU.”
“Oh. No. I shouldn’t think so. They’ll be coming for us. It’s just a matter of time until they find out.”
“SHALL WE RUN AWAY AGAIN?”
“It’s worth a try.”
They listened carefully. Nothing.
They made it to another ditch a few seconds before some voices penetrated the silence. The farmers were here.
“WE NEED A PLAN.”
“May the mad cow bless us and keep us safe..” thought Stuy.
“We could try running again.”, he said.
“THAT DOPESN’T SOLVE ANYTHING.”
“Solves most things.”
“HOW FAR DO WE HAVE TO BE TO BE SAFE?”
Stuy risked a quick look at the farmers.
“Interesting philosophical question.”, he said. “I’ve been a long way, and I’ve never been safe. That’s how I started farming.”
“AHAAAAAAAAAA! There he is!!!” screamed Ziasca from the other side of the road.
Stuy carefully considered the available options. They were cornered and Stuy also had to admit that they were fucked.
Comp took a sorrowful glance at the sky and made up his mind.
Suddenly, he attacked Stuy as if possessed.
“What are you doing man?!” Stuy has shouting, trying to escape his attacks.
But Ziazca had finally caught up and was now trying to immobilize the insane wolf .
RAzzy and Kiam quickly followed his example. Liquid was cheering in the background with beer.
Stuy was still in shock, on the ground.
“ Get that fuckin’ knife!!” RAzzy shouted.
“He’s going berserk!”
“Quick, grab his tail!!”
Kiam went for the tail.
And while RAzzy and kiam were desperately trying to calm down the beast (stuy was still in shock), Ziazca removed one of his socks and was carefully placing a brick inside it, tying the sock up at the end.
“ What good is a sock going to do?!” Kiam shouted while trying to strangle Comp.
“ Um. Well, you swing it and then you hit something with it. Or sometimes the back of your hand., sometimes..”, said Ziazca while swinging the sock around.
With a BUMP, the sock connected in its wide humming arc with Comp’s head.
“See? It sort of kills people but leaves buildings standing.”
“He….tried to save me.”, thought Stuy as the farmers were beginning to celebrate.
But the day wasn’t over and Ziazca had one more thing in mind.
He held out his hands for silence. And then, with a theatrical flourish he reached for his wallet in his pocket and opened it, revealing a golden shiny badge.
Kiam rolled his eyes.
“Kiam, you are under arrest!”, said Ziazca dead serious.
It was full moon. Stuy was lying in his bead, staring at the ceiling above him. And he was sad. Very sad. Not simply because the air conditioning had broken down again, not because he was hungry, and not even because his cat went missing (well, I guess that was to be expected since a wolf is considered a dog from a certain perspective), but also because his master was now dead. And all because he had tried to save HIM.
So of course he had to do something. It was bad manners not to.
He decided to break into the jail and kill kiam. That way, the farmers would believe Ziazca had killed him instead since he was under arrest.
If there’s anything sharper than a knife, more terrifying than a New York cockroach and bigger than a troll, then that’s definitely the element of surprise.
And the guards standing in front of Kiam’s cell had it all.
“Are you all right?” ,he asked Kiam.
“Have you come to save…whut?”
Stuy loaded his gun (the bars were an obvious obstacle for his teeth) and …….
Kiam’s blood was spread all over the wall behind him like an abstract painting.
An hour later Stuy was back home, making some tea, watching TV, his air conditioner fixed. But as he was thinking if he should get himself a cookie, he fell to the ground.
Paralyzed, in pain, clenching to life.
After a few minutes, he was dead, mouth half-opened, marking an unspoken “Ou”.
It’s all about the element of surprise.
