The Return of Boy Justice: A Short Story
by Peter Atkins
About the eBook:
"Help me. Please, Boy Justice. They're going to kill me."
Everyone seems to have forgotten Boy Justice, sidekick to TV's masked vigilante, The Blue Valentine. The actor who played Boy Justice is now 78 years old, and an autograph request from a young fan comes as quite a surprise.
Even more surprising is the boy's frantic arrival at Alderton's apartment, begging for help.
"Boy Justice. I told them you'd protect me."
Boy Justice isn't real. But it's time for him to make a comeback.
