Talk

“Not a hatchet–an actual ax.”

“Oh. I had heard he used a hatchet. Picturing Mark swinging an ax is even more difficult.”

“Yeah, well he loved Rebecca.”

“Really? You’re saying it’s okay to do what he did because he loved her? I’m not saying the killer should be walking around, but there is a little thing called rule of law. He should’ve had his day in court.”

“Please. You know as well as I do that the system is broken, especially in this case. They gave up.”

“Fine. Either way, I can’t believe it.”

“I know. Apparently when the police told him the trail went cold, Mark just quit his job, sold a bunch of stuff, and secretly tracked down that mother fucker. Search and destroy.”

“I meant that I can’t believe he turned himself in.”

“Oh.”

“Really. Now he’s probably going to prison. He had essentially gotten away with murder. And then he turns himself in. It doesn’t make sense.”

“No, it doesn’t. Have you talked to Rick much?”

“Not much.”

“Yeah, me neither.”

“Mark called me that morning to ask if I’d help him.”

“Me too.”

“I guess he learned pretty quickly who his real friend was.”

“Yeah.”

“I just have the wife and kids, you know? I can’t get involved in something like unearthing a dead body.”

“You’re right. You are right.”

“Everyone’s saying Rick is something special for risking everything to help Mark though.”

“I’ve heard the same talk.”

“Well, what can you do?”

“Not much anyone can do at this point.”

“Not at this point.”
