Hold Me Closer, Necromancer Chapter 2

By Lish McBride

Chapter 2

Well, Ain't That a Kick in the Head?

  • To shake off the disturbing events of the night, Sam decides to join Frank and Ramon for a movie night. Because they're watching Conan the Barbarian and a lot of movies with misogynistic tendencies, Brooke decides to skip out and go home.
  • In the parking lot, a big, muscular pretty-boy comes over to their car and tells Sam he's been sent by Douglas Montgomery to talk to Sam. Like we're supposed to know who Douglas Montgomery is.
  • Sam and Ramon mock the guy and shoot off their mouths. This ends up being a bad move—the muscular guy attacks Sam from behind and beats the snot out of him.
  • It gets worse: The attacker tells Sam he smells like death. And blood. These are pretty powerful intimidation tactics, but Sam decides to defy him and fight back by screaming in his face and kicking him.
  • Because Sam's no match for this guy, Ramon does his part by breaking his skateboard over the attacker's head. He responds by punching Frank's car with his fist, knocking the bumper off. Wait. Did that really just happen?
  • The guys get in the car and make their escape, debating about exactly what happened back there—whether the dude was jacked up on drugs or just having serious anger issues. Sam is really just thankful they're safe, and that Brooke got out before the action went down.
