Unexpected Encounter

“You must leave the city immediately,
And never return. Repeat:say nothing…”
His muscular jaw tenses… sighs… internally.
Eric pays the bill, and leaves by running.
Jumping onto his big motorcycle,
He leaves the city and country in haste.
Deplaning, he faces some huge rifles,
But with good luck he has been very graced.
Managing to take his opponents down,
Through cunning, mind games, and his own raw skills,
He escapes, and is finally alone.
Thoughts run through his brain in waves and swirls.
All of his plans are ruined and undone.
Who is out to get him and make him pay?
What has he done to deserve this today?
