“Will you tell me where Vic Houston is?”

Jake nodded toward an old blue Olds. “He's working under the hood over there.”

“Thanks, Jake.” The smell of gas, grease, and rubber hit Tom's nose as he made his way to the Olds. He saw Vic with a wrench, tightening something in the engine. Tom leaned against the fender. “Vic, do you have a moment?”

Vic looked surprised and Tom noticed his grease-grimed hand clench the wrench tighter. “What do you want, Shafer?” His voice was rough.

“I didn't come here to fight you, but before I leave to go back to base, I have something to say. If I hear you've hurt Pam in any way, I will find you.”

Vic's fingers bunched the dirty cloth that covered the radiator. “I don't plan to hurt Pam, but that doesn't mean I won't try to date her. And the big-time flyboy didn't bring any charges against me. Are you too chicken?” He spit on the floor by Tom's feet.
