Is the Offer Still Good?
On the streets, everyone knew him as “Oso,” and he did, in a weird way, resemble a bear. The brutal gang leader ran a small crew that dominated six blocks of town. He was the shot-caller.

He awoke in the prison infirmary after his “welcome to the joint” beatdown. As he drifted in and out of consciousness and contemplated the next fifteen years, he wondered: Did he still have that detective’s number?
Prompt: Big fish in a small pond
