The Orange Houses Chapter 28

By Paul Griffin

Chapter 28


  • At Joe's store, six days before the hanging, Jimmi breaks in and grabs some of Joe's ashes.
  • It's not long before the cops show up and arrest Jimmi.
  • The cop tells Jimmi he'll write it up as trespassing so he doesn't lose his veteran's benefits, but Jimmi doesn't care all too much.
  • The cops let Jimmi shower, which makes him feel all fresh and new, and as he leaves the police station, he's given back his backpack with Joe's ashes in it.
