Larson nodded slowly then said, "Look, Dude, I have some money saved away…in fact, I should hurry and claim Holden's stakes as well before the banks decide to keep them as their own, but that's an issue for another time. Dude, here's a couple of silver pieces. Get your mom her treatment then just get a job." The Dude tried to refuse the money, but Larson placed it in his hands and nodded again. "Take it.
