Gee,they get into alot of misunderstandings but they always work them out one way or the other.

They both wind up getting in trouble with dangerous guys due to the fact some bad guys are out on the street again with revenge on there minds hoping to get even with Hardcastle and McCormick.

Anyway I read this before a while back and this is a good of drama and emotion much like the show had.

This was a great story. Mark's disappointment and pain when he thinks the judge feels he is free-loading. And then later, when Mark decides he will have to accept that the judge doesn't think of him as family, as he does the judge.

Mark's coming back in time to save the judge, and then the judge getting a gun in time to save Mark, was a true showing of their partnership-each being there for the other when it counts.

I loved their talk at the end, and that the judge wanted to fix the mistake he made, and let Mark know how he really feels.

Thanks for sharing.

Great epilogue! I loved it just as I love everything and anything Arianna writes. Don't miss this, it's just too good to pass.

Wow! This was a nice surprise to lof on and find a bunch of new storiies to read. I loved them all but I think Meal Ticket was my favorite. I tend to like stories when they get a little mad at each other and later regret it. You seem to really understand the boys and your writing is easy to read, very nice.

Drama, tension, snappy dialogue, in addition to being a real heart-warmer; what an entrance onto the stage! Here's a bit of a shame-faced admission, though - I'd never thought of the Judge's own dirt-bike in connection with McCormick's present. I'm so glad _you_ did!

Happiest of New Year's right back atcha!

Yup, 'family, in a weird kind of way,' that's what it is. And, like family, they say clumsy things, misunderstand, squabble, and go stalking off. But when push comes to shove, they back each other up, whatever it takes.

Thanks for a delightful inter-holiday outing complete not just with angst and owies, but also with insight and humor (or humour ;-))

This is a good story. It had action, and a lot of emotion. It was a pleasure to read. Write another one soon!

Aw, what a great story. I definitely agree with LM, you need to put all of your stories on the net.
