Charlie stood in the entrance to the back room. Jake sat in the same seat he’d been in that past Sunday. He was stoic as always...he had a whiskey in front of him.

“Thanks for calling,” Charlie said.

“He was a Caspian,” Jake replied. Staring into his shot glass he

“We said we'd walk together, and come what may, then come twilight, should we lose out way, and if we're walking a hand should slip free, I'll wait for you, and if I fall behind, wait for me.”
C.A. McGroarty, Fantastik

“Jake grinned and acknowledged Charlie as being only number two in his
life. Charlie and Warden Brendan Frank, the only two men to ever do a kind
thing for him. He had never been in a position to return the deed to the warden,
but with Charlie, perhaps he was.
After a few moments’ struggle, he softly said, “I killed a man in Chicago…
many years ago.”
C.A. McGroarty, Fantastik

“He caught a glance of himself in the stand-up mirror in the corner of the room. His hair was soaking wet, beads of sweat ran down his face, and the black hair on his arms and chest had matted together. He looked more Tobacco Road than Rittenhouse Square, and his already thin frame looked more frail than usual—it was. He had to remind himself to eat real food.”
C.A. McGroarty, A Return to Normalcy
