Short Story: Payback

So this isn’t perfect. It was one of my assignments in one of my classes. Went through about 4 revisions, and received much feedback, but I’d like to make it better. So please, offer me your thoughts. I do like the story, which is why I wanted to share. Also, a note on my other …

Tim Cappello had a cameo in THE LOST BOYS—and by calling it a cameo we are being generous—and yet he has managed to achieve a cult following for it. “Sax Man,” as his character is known, is still rockin’ three decades later. He finally got around to releasing an album, entitled “Blood on the Reed,”…
