Bad Grass Bill

“Looks like he was up to something Bill.”

Detective William Robert slowly pans his flashlight across the field. “Tell me Earl, does the grass look matted down over there?”

“It sure is Bill Bob.” Once again Detective Robert dismisses his partner’s dull wit.

“Hey Earl, go stand by that stump, I wanna see something.”

Earl imitates a little girl skipping in the spotlight. “Anything for you Billy Bob.” Without emotion, Detective Robert whiteness’ Earl’s demise in the sticky, alien grass. “Beh, Beh, Billllll, help Bill help! I can’t move, I’m stuck real bad Bill!!”
