SUPERHERO SUPPORT GROUP
By D. M. Larson
PART 13 Humor the Guy
Let the rest of them go, Carl...
Caper! Call me Caper.
I refuse to call you by a name that isn't you.
Come on, Doc! Humor the guy.
I refuse to back down on my principles even in the face of death...
The Doctor is trying score points for the afterlife which she'll soon be seeing.
(Caper holds up the trigger with a shaking hand. Catchick sees Dogboy circling and helps distract Caper)
Wait! Can I have one last request?
I'm young... I haven't lived my life.
What are you talking about?
There's so much life I want to live. So much I want to do... did I really do you such a wrong that I can't have one little request before I die.
I don't know...
What is it?
It's embarrasing... can I whisper it in your ear?
Um... I guess so...
(Catchick leans in to whisper in his ear and gets ahold of his arm. Dogboy makes his move. Sirens are heard.)
(Catchick wrestles Caper's arm and Dogboy tackles Caper to the ground. The Doctor cowers between some chairs.)
