Jack Shares His Betrayal With Mike.


“Life was actually treating me pretty well until our mutual former classmate, Blake Riley pulled the carpet from underneath me. I thought that Blake and I were pretty tight the last few years. We were very successful business partners until Blake decided to cut me out of the partnership. I thought that we had each other’s backs until very recently. I would even have said that we were close friends at one time but Blake met a female entrepreneur that swept him off his feet. To paraphrase Marlon Brando she made Blake a business offer that he could not refuse. Unfortunately I didn’t seem to fit into the happy couple’s business plans. Blake threw me out like last week’s garbage.
“You sound very angry. Are you planning to get Blake back for this travesty of justice?” said Mike taking a sip from his can of Diet Coke.
“You bet I am and that’s where I need your help,” answered Jack.
“Oh, where’s my manners? Can I get you a Diet Coke or put on some coffee for you?” said Mike.
“Yeah, I’ll have a coffee once you get your percolator all fired up.”
Mike got up and slowly and carefully manoeuvred his way off the couch to make the coffee in his small kitchen. There were so many dirty cups, plates, dishes and bowls that Mike had to move a lot of cookware out of his way in order to find the coffee percolator. He’d worry about finding a clean coffee cup after the coffee was brewed.
After he finished setting up the coffee maker Mike returned to the couch. It looked like the couch had swallowed the big man inside it so that he was now a part of it.
