A little encouragement

'Have you got my money, Michael?'

Michael glanced up nervously, scratching at a grubby shirt. 'I ... I'm working on it.'

'Perhaps you need to work harder?' Doyle lifted up a baseball bat, wiggling its tip menacingly.

'I ... I definitely won't be able to get it if I can't walk.'

'You don't seem to be able to pay it back as it is. Perhaps you need a little encouragement?'

'I'll pay it back, Mr Doyle. I promise.'

'I know you will, Michael.'

Doyle swung the bat, tight and fast.

Michael yelped as his wrist snapped with an audible crack.

Rob - Yeah, definitely a reminder to be very careful of whom you choose as a creditor! This is very well-done.
