The Friends Of Starstepper Society
Are the Friends of Starstepper for real? Are they serious? Very. But how so? Who are they, anyway? And what's in it for them?
The first person to become a person of deep emotional purport in Starstepper's life was the owner of the hotel he lives in. He lives in a Al Capone Chicago type town in a ghetto. Her name is Old Lady Smith. She offered him free rent for security services after she happened on him when he was in the form of a huge Kodiak bear as he scared off some teenage gangsters in the city who thought to have fun with the funny and lonely looking Apache.
His kindly patience did not prevent them from pulling out their pipes, knives, chains and brass knuckles. In fact, it inspired their contempt. Were they up to dealing with their new found clown as a 9 foot Kodiak bear, grizzly, growling and coming at them? You should have seen them run!
Mrs. Smith will never forget it! And there are other stories she could tell you, too...
Two days after Starstepper moved in to his new place a team of three bouncers, sent by the Big Boss, guns wagging, showed up there for their protection money. Sounds good but it wasn't. The protection she was forced to buy was from them.
Imagine their surprise, and hers too, when a 6 foot tall American Eagle stepped into the room and exhaled fire from its yellow beak like a flame thrower. Believe you me, they lost all interest in the money right then and there! I think I might have done the same.
But who is the Big Boss? Isn't he the guy who sent the thugs? Must be the head honcho in some type of Boss organization. Yes, that's true. But when the boys got back without the loot he got out his best thinking cap and put it on real serious. He must maintain respect in the neighborhood or it all falls down. And it better not be his pants!
Other notables in the life of the Big Boss are his Secretary/Nurse, his Shrink, and a sarcastic inventor who owns and operates Dr. Zoobar's Scientific Underworld Solutions.No Ltd. He is jealous of the Big Boss' nurse because she looks real cute under that white hat. But she sure has her hands full getting him to take his medications. Couldn't she do better, he wanted to ask. But hey, its a job, and it pays her well, she would have told him back.
There are many other friends and foes in Starstepper's life. Some of them show up only once but others find their days wrapped up in his one way or another often. Good thing he comes through for them, so far. Speaking of time, I wish I had more of it to tell you the rest right now. But the little woman needs me to wire up her new stereo so she can play her old Tommy Dorsey records and she has been after me about it for longer than I like to confess.
Starstepper is the fictional main character, do I need to say, in a book of short stories I just uploaded at Amazon to the Kindle reading platform.I will tell you more of him later, happily. Or click on the Amazon Starstepper story book link under the eagle photo below and give him a quick once over.
