“It’s time to put your money where your mouth is,” Will said limbering up his wrist. For weeks he had heard people going on about the undefeated Tyler. Enough was enough, and now Will was coming out of self-imposed retirement. This road house was his and everybody should remember the fact!
As the two combatants took to the table money started to be slapped down all over the joint. This was going to be the decisive battle to settle the issue once and for all.
“Okay, Dad, I’m ready when you are,” Tyler said looking his father straight in the eye.
Will knew the day would come someday, but he thought it would have been longer than nineteen years.
After a long struggle the older man felt his knuckles hit the table.
Tyler jumped up and scooping the cash into his hand, called out, “The champion!”
“Happy birthday son,” Will said with a wink. The gesture did exactly what he hoped. Now everyone wondered if the old guy had let his son win. Well reputations die hard in Buck Hollow.
