Day 293 – Opportunities – Short Story
Ten grand, seventeen years of my life, all nutted down to ten grand, that’s what they paid me when THEY decided it was time for me to move on. SEVENTEEN FUCKING YEARS of my life I gave them, help them build their little fucking empire, my blood, my sweat, kids birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, holidays, everything I gave to them, and now I’m left with ten MEASLY grand and nothing else?
My wife left me after eight years of putting up with my work habits, we tried to make it work, but, THEY needed me, THEY couldn’t make things happen without me, and now, THEY tell me it’s over, BULLSHIT IT’S OVER!
Every fucking skeleton, every fucking thing they’ve hid over the years is coming out, every fucking bad decision, every fucking fuck up, all of it, on national TV no less. Those fucks think they can just throw me away like I’m nothing! Like I didn’t contribute anything to their empire! Well they’re wrong, I’m going to make them regret this one, I’m going to make their lives worth nothing, bring their empire to the ground, and then, when it’s all over, I’ll take my measly ten grand and offer to buy them out, take their tired, dying business, and let them walk away with what they gave me.
Yeah, it’s going to be fucking awesome, once the news crew gets here, I’m going to spill everything, and then these fucks will know who is really the boss, and I won’t need this gun to show them that.
