Little Red gets flirtatious


(J2#6/3) - Manny the Mobster had to make a delivery of money as part of his illegal money laundering operations with Grandma, but all his other couriers were busy, so he ordered his bookie, Little Red, to take the money to her. But on his way to Grandma's bakery, her front for the laundering, he was distracted by a tavern and stayed there for a while, trying to flirt with the waitress, admiring her big eyes. Meanwhile, Grandma had been held up by two hoods seeking the laundered money delivery. Elsewhere, Little Red realized he was late and rushed to Grandma's bakery, but was silently observed by Zane Yama (J2). However, Little Red was held up by the hoods as well after entering the bakery. The two hoods admired the money and were about to shoot Little Red when J2 smashed through the wall and knocked the hoods out. Although rescued from certain death, he was very soon arrested by the police who were rounding up Manny's associates. He was taken away in a prison van along with Grandma and the two hoods.

The title of this tale was "Little Red, the Wretched Hood!", and is an obvious take on the "Little Red Riding Hood" fairy tale.
