Billy nervously grips the hammer.
The woman in red-sequined skirt, fake smiling and waving, skates off to applause.
Announcements and music echo over the rink. A blue-sequined woman steps onto the ice.
Red Sequins glances at Marvin, nods. Marvin whispers, “Take her out,” giving Billy a shove.
Billy lunges, hammer held high. Slick ice gives no traction. He sprawls, releasing the hammer. It flips, descends, hammer claw embedding in his skull.
Blue Sequins, seeing blood splatter freezing around Billy’s head, falls on her rump.
Red Sequins smacks her forehead. Marvin ducks out.
Lesson: Don’t hire thugs from Craigslist.
