Do the Job, Take the Shot (#32 Metamorphosis)

Ian drove for an hour before he found cell coverage.

“I’m coming home.” Ian said quietly.

“How are you?” Charlie asked.

“Got the kid back. Had to take a shot.”

“That’s not what I asked.”

“I’m fine.”

“You’re lying.”

“Yes.” There was quiet on the other end. “I’m not who I was. I can still do the job, take the shot but… It’s changed. I’ve changed. I don’t know.”

“Why don’t you come home and we’ll talk things out.” Ian was quiet for a long time. “Ian?”

“Thank you.”

“For what?”

“Still keeping me.”

“I promised I would, did I?”
