Buried my Fish

Kate, sticking her finger into his chest, says, “You just buried my fish.” There’s a stand off silence between them. “I caught the biggest Northern Pike I’ve ever caught. We were just about to gut it on a concrete slab that you just buried with your dump truck.”

The guy looks down at his hands and the red disappears. “Well shit lady, I didn’t mean to bury your catch. I was just dumping fill like we do when the park’s closed.”
