That's Just Crazy Talk

Ah dang, I think I made things worse.

In his haste to establish friendly relations, George failed to consider that the worst thing he could do was to seem pushy or overly friendly. Cisco right now seemed to be outright terrified of him, and under the circumstances, especially with his physique, he couldn't really blame him for that. The best thing he could do right now was to give Cisco some space and to apologize for the whole deal. Hopefully, the guy wouldn't get himself killed without a helping hand, but it was unlikely that George would have contributed much anyway.

"I don't plan to kill anybody," he said in a much slower voice. "Couldn't do it even if I wanted to. But seeing as you clearly don't trust me, I'll just be on my way then."

Walking in the opposite direction, with one hand on the strap of his daypack and the other in the pocket of his shorts, George turned his head around and shouted back, "See ya, Cisco! Be careful out there, okay?"

Now what am I going to do? First time I meet someone who isn't packing Carol Channing, I'm dead. Guess I'll find that out when I get there.
