Excerpt from Conduct Unbecoming
The ambulance carrying Isobel lumbered away and Teague finished talking to the police officer. When he was done, he called Vivica, but her phone went directly to voice mail. His next call, to his cousin Joel, went through.
“Why are you calling on my day off?” Joel asked, bellowing over loud rock music.
“Tell ya about it when you pick me up, cuz. I need a ride. I’m at Old Fort Park.”
“Be there in five.” He hung up.
Good to his word, Joel pulled up in his bright blue, souped up Honda Civic. Teague got in, wrinkling his nose.
“This car is an embarrassment, Joel.”
“What’s wrong with Blue Bell?”
“The name, for starters.”
Joel stopped abruptly at the corner. “If you don’t like my ride, you can walk home.”
“Sorry I insulted the ugliest car on Earth.”
The car lurched to a stop in the middle of the street.
“I lied, it’s not the ugliest,” Teague replied. “Could we not? I just got shot at.”
