2: Broken Heart
afternoon, Hank, Dale, and Boomhauer met in the alley as they always
did. They waited for Bill to show up as he normally did. To kill
time, Hank and the gang engulfed several beers, cautious not to get
drunk. Minutes passed by, and there was still no sign of Bill.
should have been here by now, Hank said. He always shows up
between 3:00 and 3:30 in the afternoon. Now its 3:40, and theres
no sign of Bill at all.
man, maybe hes inside his dang ol house, man, Boomhauer
true, Hank said. Lets go see if hes OK. Hank, Dale,
and Boomhauer walked next door to Bills house. Like Hanks
house, it was a one-level home surrounded by a rather small patch of
land. Dale knocked on Bills door. They waited for Bill to answer
it, but nobody seemed to hear the door being knocked. Dale knocked
much louder. Angry when nobody was coming, Dale slammed his fist
repetitively on the door. He panted when he stopped, but he grew
even madder when Bill still did not show up.
