Hi everyone! I love this quote. It's from Mickey Spillane's Something's Down There:
"Hooker didn't turn around. He simply let his eyes slide up to the dirty back bar mirror and he saw Chana at the same time she saw him and their eyes met and for a second he wished he had been packing his .45 and the piece was in his hand with the hammer back so he could turn and shoot her guts right out of her beautiful belly and it would finally be all over with for all time.
"She came up to him and said, 'Hello, Mako.'"
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
