On the lam and in love

Demise in Denim

Walker Boone here. There’s a dead guy in the bathtub, my gun’s responsible for the dead part and I don’t know how to get out of this mess.







The thing is I didn’t kill the guy and until I can find out who did I’m on the run. It’s not as easy as you might think. This is Savannah and everyone knows me. I’m that lawyer guy who dives the ’57 red Chevy convertible. It’s a given I can’t use that as a get-away car so I switched it for a pink scooter. No ones going to look for me in a pink scooter…right?


Now where to hide is the problem. I can’t leave town. If I do that I’ll never find the killer and be on the run for the rest of my life. I don’t want to be on the run, I want to stay in Savannah.

I like it here, it’s home. I have a house, a law practice, a dog named Bruce Willis and I have a girl, a special girl. And that’s here things get even more tricky.

It’s been a little rocky between us since I represented her ex in their divorce and sort of took her to the cleaners in the settlement. In my own defense she’s the one who signed the prenup that made the cleaners part pretty darn easy.

But then out paths kept crossing. I know her mom, her aunt, Bruce Willis thinks I’m a good guy and then there are the dead bodies that keep popping up. Hard to imagine forming a relationship over a corpse but that’s how it is. We’re usually trying to find the killer sometimes together, other times not so much.

She has her ways of doing things and I have mine. Mine are a little more calculated and thought out. Hers are mostly dumb luck that puts her in the right place at the wrong time.
We’ve gotten close, closer than I’ve ever been to anyone. Why did I have to figure this out now of all times? Why not before?

Well there you have it. I’m a guy on the lam and a guy in love and I don’t know how to fix either one. Wish me luck and maybe give me some advice on how to let this girl...this special girl...know I care about when I can’t even let her know where I am. 


I’ll give away two Demise in Denim lunch tote from the answers.

  1. Walker, Walker, Walker, how did you get into this mess? Oh, and "dumb luck", really, you want to go with that. How is your "thoughtful consideration" working out for you? The way i see it, me and my dumb luck are your best chance of catching the real killer and saving your spectacular, umm, car. Don't worry, you'll think of some way to show your appreciation. Gotta run. Hot dogs in the fridge, Reagan

    1. See…that’s exactly what I’ve been telling Walker all along. I’m really good at this finding the bad guy stuff and needs to trust me and not be so protective. Thanks for the support. Hugs, Reagan

  2. I think we need to send her this post! I just went awwww when he said a special girl. I think fixing may be easier than you think. After all, you've got the pink scooter, don't you? But find the killer first.

    1. Thanks Gandma Cootie. Reagan is special and I hope she believes me when I tell her that. Things have not always been terrific between us but lately…well, things have been better. Thanks for writing. Have a good day. Walker

  3. I think maybe an email wouldn't hurt---or a phone call. Or maybe just catch the killer so you can go see her.

    1. Hi Sue. I have to be very careful as I know the cops are watching her. I don’t want to get her in trouble and for her to get locked up too for helping me out. Have a good day. Walker

    1. And I do care. I hate that I’m putting her in harms way. Sure hope we find that killer fast.
      Thanks for writing. Walker

  6. This may be a little tricky being in the situation you are in at this time. Maybe you can send her some type of communication to let her know you are okay and thinking about her. After you catch the killer, then try to woo her, and ask her out for a date.

    1. Hi Michelle. An email might let the cops know she’s in touch with me and that would put her in harms way. I got a more tasty idea. Wait till you see. Thanks for the support. Walker

    1. Hi, Mary. Yes, we need to find this killer first and the cops keep getting in the way. Have a good day. Walker

  9. Communication is important. Let her know you care about and for her, you're ok (and if you can safely do so, where you are). Catch the killer and then take her on a special date. She might e thrilled to have a ride on that beautiful pink scooter! servedogmom@yahoo.com

    1. The communication part is tricky. The cops are sniffing around and I need to keep distance between us. But there is a way…I think I have an idea that will work. Thanks for writing. Walker

  10. Let her know somehow that you are okay, after you get out of the spot you are in tell her how you feel. Thanks for the opportunity! angelhwk68@yahoo.com

    1. Great idea. She needs to know I’m around and watching out for her. I’ll do that. Thanks for the tip. Walker

  12. Do one thing special every day - bring a red rose one day, send a text, bring something for the dog. One simple thing each day that takes some effort and shows how often you think about her.

  13. As soon as I find the killer I can do all those things. If the cops thing she’s helping me her goose is cooked. Thanks for all the suggestions that I can use once this is all over. Walker
