We get ready to go out for a serious drinking session. We have a few whiskey chasers before we head out. Ray’s telling me nothing, but shows me everything. He’s got a crap poker face.
Ray: Did you know Logan’s doing well for himself?
Paul: Good for him!
Ray: He owns nightclubs, bars, casino’s, property all over the city. He’s worth about forty million!
Paul: Well so would I be if I had a five million kickstart!
Ray goes silent. I worked for Logan before I went inside. In fact, he set up the warehouse robbery that I done fifteen years inside for. I’m confident Ray never knew what REALLY happened on this job. I’m about to show him.
There’s a CCTV video that was posted on youtube. Me and my team were ambushed after we pulled off the robbery. We were switching cars in a warehouse, then it all kicked off! BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
Ray: WTF! I never knew about this!…But It doesn’t make sense! I mean why would Logan get you guys to do the robbery, then have you killed? I mean, he would still have to pay these other guys?
Paul: Not as much. We prepared six months for this job. I had a highly skilled crew. Because of this, we got a 50-50 cut.
Ray: So he paid the ambush team less?
Paul: Psychopaths who would pop anybody for ten grand a head.
Ray: Shit! Now I know why you talked about revenge for years. You used to go on like Max Cady!
Paul: All those years inside, I thought about shooting him, stabbing him, burning him, strangling him, or just running him the fuck over! Every way you could kill a man, I thought and fantasised about doing this to Logan!
Ray: You still feel the same?
Paul: No! I can’t live like that. That negative rage was burning me up. All that energy went into my writing. That’s all I care about now. It’s a fresh start, new chapter for me. Lets go get a drink!
