Friday Night Drabble Party!
Okay, okay, I know I missed last week. But, y’all, I was at the lake! THE LAKE! Lake time rules.
Hey! Y’all signed up for my newsletter? Better get to that. I give shit away, people. Books, audiobooks, a chance for your name to be in one of my books. Get on it!
Now, on with the drabble!

The Legend sputtered, coughed, fell on his face, died.
The townsfolk gasped.
“Guess I’m the new sheriff in town,” Gil said, grinning at the townsfolk. “Bet you sorry sacks didn’t see that comin’, did ya?”
