""Sure," Jason said as the third gulp of alcohol disappeared, he didn't ask for another, not yet. "Until others are ready to string you up by your laces and turn you into nothing but meat because you happen to be related to one of the most notorious gangsters in town.

He seemed to honestly think about Jason’s question before bringing his head down, blue eyes placid and face composed.
“Yeah,” Randy said finally, poker-faced. “I used t’shovel manure.”
