Arriving In the Wrong Story #3

About this time, our hero was starting to wonder if he was going to manage to get anyone to pay attention to the dam above the town where the water was already high and getting higher as the thunderstorm hit. "Would you just look?" he shouted.

And the mayor looked up across the rooftops at the dam. "Hey! That dam's going to break!"

"That's what I've been trying to tell you."

"There's nothing wrong with that dam," came a voice from behind our hero. He turned and found that he was facing the police chief, standing there with gun drawn. "You've been scaring everybody about this long enough."

"Apparently not, because you still aren't paying attention." He turned to the mayor. "Aren't you in charge here?"

"I thought so, but it seems that he's got the gun."

Yes, so he does.
