“Cool as Stone Cold, cool as Stone Cold.” Spinelli’s mantra was the speed of thought shooting by in just an intelligible enough fashion to mean something. This is another one of those situations that Spinelli only imagines himself getting into in a far off, fantasy way, and yet finds himself in anyway. Bullets tear through the air as Spinelli tears around a corner, wishing he’d spent more time running track in high school instead of smoking pot. It’s mobsters again (always with the mobsters).
And crap, Spinelli wants to be manly and badass but he’s rapidly picking up that there’s a very clear line between all that and being stupid. And Spinelli is a lot of things, but he can always hold tight to the fact that he’s not stupid. He turns another tight corner, ducking into a small pocket of shadow, curling in on himself. His laptop is warm against his chest, the quiet thrum a calming distinction from the blood rush in his head. The footsteps of numerous, fun wielding villains gets closer.
“Cool as Stone Cold, Cool as Stone Cold…”
