A Series of Things That Henry Deals With

by Moose | Score: 5950

It's not every day you discover a letter in your inbox containing the seal of the Queen. Her royal highness seldom sends letters to common men employed in the Qranst Quarry. Hell, Henry had just arrived back home from the dentists when he saw the fabled blue letter on his door. Fuck that dentist. And his bottle of syrup. But dentists and syrup aside, what was Henry to do now.

As he picked up the letter, a gang of rowdy men from the Tavern five houses down arrived to rob his ass blind. That's how the fight broke out, that's how Henry got arrested for beating the living shit out of Mr. Korlsn. And he still hadn't opened that damned letter from the Queen.

As he sat in that cell, with only an unwilling auctioneer babbling on about market prices and pestering Henry on if he wanted to purchase a moose from India, or an antique coffee mug from Thailand, he really wanted to beat the shit outta that man too. 

The letter though, fuuuck that letter. Speaking of which, whilst Henry waited in that cell, a package had been delivered to his home unbeknowst to him. A package containing a gun. You see, Henry had been chosen for a job. A killing job. Henry worked once for an artistic sports coach named Melvin, who was actually a hired gun. Henry was also a hired gun. Fuck.

Now how did the Queen know Henry was a hired gun? Cause that dumbass wore a bangle bracelet containing the mark of the hired guns. I mean it literally had a fucking gun on it.

Back to Henry. A strange mist suddenly begins to penetrate the cell. As he wonders what the fuck, a shrill cry echoes in the mist. Man is Henry absolutley fucked. Like, hes really fucked. Really with a damned I for fucks sake. Fuck that Mistewr Melvin. And the tolerent curator. And the fucking moose. Ohhh fuck that moose. Blasted moose and his damned noose. Thicc like  a shoose. Well. Fuck
Henry died.
