    Brad pulled his gray McLaren 570S Spider into the drive of his parents' political home in the suburbs of Washington DC. Jenny hopped out and not-quite ran to the door. Brad turned the car around, expecting an abrupt departure. Shutting the engine off, he sat for a moment before getting out. He pocketed the keys, sighed, and walked slowly towards the door Jenny had disappeared into. “Hello, Netty,” he said to the cook when he entered. “Master Bradley,” Netty said in greeting. “They're waiting for you in the parlor.” “Thanks, Netty.” Brad left the kitchen and went down the hall. He listened. Not to the words, but to the voices. He heard Jenny asking questions. His father and mother tried to answer her. Will tried to get a word in. But not Steph. Brad frowned. Stephanie tended to be the loudest of the four and always had something to say on every subject. He entered the parlor. “Where's Steph?” “That's what we wanted you here to discuss,” Senator James Michaels, his father, said. “She's been kidnapped.” “First Jen. Now Steph. This family is cursed,” Will muttered. “Have they made contact?” Jen asked. “Yes. Don't involve the police,” the Senator said. “Further demands will follow.” Crossing his arms, Brad leaned against the inside of the archway. He shot a quick look at Jen. “How did they contact you?” she asked. “They sent us a video recording on a memory stick,” his mother answered. “I want to see it,” Jen said. “It's in my office. The computer is on,” his father said. Jen headed back towards the hall. She gave Brad a quick nod on the way by. He saw her pull her phone out of her pocket when she was out of sight of her parents. Brad watched his family. His mother and father looked at each other. Will tried to disappear into the sofa. “So, what's the plan?” “We wait until they make contact again. We find out what their demands are. We keep her safe.” Shaking his head, Brad said, “There's not a damned thing we can do that will keep her safe if they decide to harm her. In the meantime, business as usual. There's nothing wrong. Keep your career safe.” “What's that supposed to mean?” James demanded. “Same thing it always means, Dad. Your career is what is important. Not Jen when she was taken. Not Steph now. Hey, Will, got any plans to be kidnapped so Dad can schedule around it?” “You're out of line!” “Am I?” Brad asked. “Got it!” Jen said running past Brad. “Where are you going?” “Business as usual, Dad. Living up to your expectations. Jen's got schoolwork to do. I've got a date tonight. Feel free to call when you'd like me to stop by for another ten minutes.” Brad turned. “Gotta go.”
  2. Shield Bash was a standard in DragonQuest.
  3. On a warm summer's evening On a train bound for nowhere I met up with the gambler We were both too tired to sleep So we took turns a-starin' Out the window at the darkness The boredom overtook us And he began to speak He said, "Son, I've made a life Out of readin' people's faces Knowin' what the cards were By the way they held their eyes So if you don't mind my sayin' I can see you're out of aces For a taste of your whiskey I'll give you some advice" So I handed him my bottle And he drank down my last swallow Then he bummed a cigarette And asked me for a light And the night got deathly quiet And his face lost all expression Said, "If you're gonna play the game, boy You gotta learn to play it right You've got to know when to hold 'em Know when to fold 'em Know when to walk away And know when to run You never count your money When you're sittin' at the table There'll be time enough for countin' When the dealin's done Every gambler knows That the secret to survivin' Is knowin' what to throw away And knowin' what to keep 'Cause every hand's a winner And every hand's a loser And the best that you can hope for Is to die in your sleep" And when he'd finished speakin' He turned back toward the window Crushed out his cigarette Faded off to sleep And somewhere in the darkness The gambler he broke even But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep You've got to know when to hold 'em Know when to fold 'em Know when to walk away And know when to run You never count your money When you're sittin' at the table There'll be time enough for countin' When the dealin's done You've got to know when to hold 'em (when to hold 'em) Know when to fold 'em (when to fold 'em) Know when to walk away And know when to run You never count your money When you're sittin' at the table There'll be time enough for countin' When the dealin's done You've got to know when to hold 'em Know when to fold 'em Know when to walk away And know when to run You never count your money When you're sittin' at the table There'll be time enough for countin' When the dealin's done
  4. Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.
  5. Then again, they could be hiding their actual true potential. They let a hit get through here and there to see what you are capable of.
  6. She's been goin' out with him She's been goin' out with me Said she'd let us know by tonight Which one it would be So I waited by the phone But she never called me up Had to know what was goin' on So, I drove by her house and sure enough That ain't my truck in her drive Man this ain't my day tonight Looks like she's in love and I'm out of luck That ain't my shadow on her wall Lord this don't look good at all That's my girl my whole world But that ain't my truck I pulled over by the curb I've been sittin' here all night Wonderin' what it was I did so wrong That he did so right I've thought of breakin' down her door But there's nothin' left to say That chevy four-by-four Says it all sittin' in my place That ain't my truck in her drive Man this ain't my day tonight Looks like she's in love and I'm out of luck That ain't my shadow on her wall Lord this don't look good at all That's my girl my whole world But that ain't my truck That ain't my shadow on her wall Lord this don't look good at all That's my girl my whole world But that ain't my truck That's my girl my whole world But that ain't my truck
  7. Heading out this morning into the sun Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin' one Warm wind caress her Her lover it seems Oh, Annie Dreamboat Annie my little ship of dreams
  8. Well, I heard some people talkin' just the other day And they said you were gonna put me on a shelf But let me tell you I got some news for you And you'll soon find out it's true And then you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself 'Cause I'm already gone And I'm feelin' strong I will sing this vict'ry song Woo hoo hoo, my my, woo hoo hoo The letter that you wrote me made me stop and wonder why But I guess you felt like you had to set things right Just remember this, my girl, when you look up in the sky You can see the stars and still not see the light (that's right) And I'm already gone And I'm feelin' strong I will sing this vict'ry song Woo hoo hoo, my my, woo hoo hoo Well, I know it wasn't you who held me down Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains And we never even know we have the key But me, I'm already gone And I'm feelin' strong I will sing this vict'ry song 'Cause I'm already gone Yes, I'm already gone And I'm feelin' strong I will sing this vict'ry song 'Cause I'm already gone Yes, I'm already gone Already gone All right, nighty-night Already gone

  10. If you can track it down, Class was a 2016 Dr Who spinoff about kids studying at Coal Hill. Found it in a bin in a dollar store.
  11. A couple of cows were smoking a joint and playing cards. That's right. The steaks were pretty high.
  12. Apparently large vehicles aren't considered weapons. It's good to know.
