Round Robin Episode 7

Help? Jackie needed a high profile lawyer and a giant shoe horn to get out of this. Or… She caught sight of Jack climbing the fire escape. Or one PI who could cough up some answers, like how he knew Matt and what he knew about her mother’s secret account. “Thank you ladies for your help, but I think you need to turn that quilt square over to the cops. Evidence, you know.”

“This isn’t our first murder, dear.” The two women looked at each other before easing toward the bar’s open back door. “Are you going to join us?”

Not in this lifetime. Inside, Jackie heard the police barging into the scene upsetting the already traumatized patrons. Red and blue strobelights sliced through the dark alley, tainting their faces in garish hues.

The woman on the left raised an eyebrow.

Jackie resisted the urge to cringe while slipping on her heels. Why is it that women of a certain age always managed to make her feel guilty with that look? “I just need to collect myself.”

Ignoring the body of her ex, Jackie tiptoed around the blood oozing along the debris strewn asphalt. She felt more than saw the two women head inside. Smiling, she ran to the lowered fire escape and set her hands on the cold metal rungs. When she caught up with Jack, she’d….

Glasses shattered, sending a trail of glittering shards across the stained concrete floor. The businessmen at the oak bar shrieked like school girls before melting off their stools to cower near the brass footrest.

Taking her own advice, Jackie pressed inside the curved side of the bar. Her tight jeans cut across her belly as she kicked off her stilettos. Well this certainly hadn’t gone the way she’d planned. Palming the heels, she wielded the makeshift weapon. Three inches of Chinese plastic against bullets, not if she wanted to get out of this alive. Time for plan B.

“Stand up and face me like a man, you son of a bitch!” Another pop and the lampshade over the pool table exploded.

Jackie’s tongue stuck to the roof of her mouth. Could she make it down the hallway to the bathrooms?

Two more shots echoed around the bar.

Wood chips from Jack’s table sprayed the floor. “Jenner, is that you?”

Jackie mentally cringed. Maybe it had been a blessing that the PI hadn’t returned her call. The man sounded too damn relaxed for someone being shot at. Inhaling a calming breath, she looked for an exit. Matt would have to understand. Becoming collateral damage wouldn’t help fund the animal shelter and she didn’t have that much life insurance.
