Fractured Fairytales: Ruby Red
The gang split, but not before their boss accidentally tripped on the grandmother’s sewing basket. He slammed into the wall, dislodging the antique silver axe that Ruby’s grandfather had used during his days as a lumberjack. The axe tumbled from its display pegs and lodged into the gang member’s skull, killing him instantly.
Ruby believed The Lupines would not trouble her family again. She was dead wrong.
Up through the gang hierarchy emerged a troubled soul out for revenge. The younger brother to their dead boss, he had the street name of “Big Bad” and the credo to match. Big Bad planned to let Ruby Red know just how bad a Lupine he could be. With several of his posse staking the house, he broke in while Ruby was out grocery shopping. Big Bad killed Woody Pineisco and dragged the grandmother away into the night.
“Little Red Rides into the Hood” - only this time, she plans to end the tragic story.
