LEMONADE BOYS (rough draft) The Story Continues, The Competition (The King and Trey)

The boys were gathered in their clubhouse.

“Well Bossman, what should we do about Trey?”  Lug spoke.

The King sat in contemplation, “Let’s give him a little time.  I want to see what he does.”

Fudge was a little jittery, “You sure you don’t want us to rough him a bit?”

“No Fudge I don’t.  We can’t stop this Trey guy with violence.  We need to make smart moves.”  The King was even in his speech.

 

A few days went by.  Lug and Fudge would periodically drive by the apple juice stand to check on Trey.  They would not speak to him, they would only drive by just to see if he was operating or not.  And he was.

Lug and Fudge reported back to the King.

“Bossman it has been four days now and Trey is still operating as normal.”  That was Lug.

“He did not take your words seriously sir.”  Said Fudge.

The King sat up, “Very well.  We will need to take some action against Trey.   Fudge, do you think his stand is made of wood?”

“Yes sir, it definitely is.” Fudge answered.

“And is it about the same size as our stands?”  The King asked.

“Yes sir, I would say so.”  Fudge answered.

“Very good.  Then here is what we will do…”   The King laid out his plan for Lug and Fudge.

 

It was Wednesday Morning.  3am.  Pitch black out.   A U-haul moving truck drives into the quite suburb.   The U-haul truck parks about 50 yards away from the apple juice stand.    It all happens very quick.    The truck turns off.   Eight figures in dark attire and ski masks exit the vehicle.  One opens the back of the truck.  It is empty.  The figures gather around the apple juice stand and lift it.  It moves easily.  The figures move in unison and load the apple juice stand into the back of the U-haul truck.  They close the truck, get back in, and drive away.  The maneuver took no more than four minutes to complete.

 

It was the afternoon.  School let out.  Trey had just gotten out of class and was walking home.  Let’s make today a great day of business. Trey thought.   As he walked to his normal working location he stopped.  “Where is it?”  He asked aloud.   All he saw was nothing, only an empty space where his stand used to be.    Some local neighborhood kids came by to see Trey and get some apple juice.

“Hey Trey, where is your stand?  What did you do with it?”  One kid asked.

Trey was stunned.  “I just don’t know.  It vanished.”

 

Back at the headquarters, the King and his boys were meeting.  Fudge was laughing, “Oh Boss, I would be so happy to see the look on that guys face when he shows up to no stand.”   Fudge was joyous.

“I’m sure he will be quite surprised.”  Said the King.

“Surprised?” Lug asked.  “He is probably going to lose it!”

“Well boys, it feels good to strike a blow to the competition.”  The King spoke.   “But I do think we should put Trey out of his misery.   Let’s deliver the package to him in two days time.”

“Do you think we should have one of the girls do it?”  Fudge asked.

“That is a good idea Fudge.  Yes.”  The King was pleased.

Trey was leaving his class at school.

“Hey Trey!” A voice called out.

Trey turned around to see a girl standing in front of him.  She wore a very revealing top and she wore a short skirt.  This girl also held a medium size envelope in her hands.

“Woah, hey, who are you?”  Trey wondered.

“My name is not important.  I have something for you.”  The girl handed the envelope to Trey.  “It is from somebody else in the business.  It is safe to open I promise.  Be sure to act wisely.  See you later.”   The girl turned quickly and walked away.

Trey took the envelope and walked to the bathroom.  He wanted some privacy to open the envelope.

He opened it and pulled out the contents.  They was a small envelope that said ‘Trey’ on it.  And there were 3 photos.  One was a photo of the sign, “Welcome to Smallsberg.”      Smallsberg was a small town about 30 minutes from where they all lived.  The other photos were of his apple juice stand!   There it stood in Smallsberg.  One had a photo of the stand with a couple of good-looking teenage girls next to it.  And the other had a far away shot showing the location of the stand.

Trey’s mouth dropped, “They moved it!”  He dropped the photos on the ground and he reached to the small envelope with his name on it (‘Trey’).   He opened the envelope and it was a handwritten note.  His eyes scanned it.   Trey trembled slightly as he read the note.

The note read:

Stay out of my territory.    Sincerely, The King.

Lemonade (Rough Draft) Fit for a King

As the King sat in class he looked around the room.  He did see some talent.

The students were going around the room introducing themselves and saying an interesting fact or a hobby.    Nothing out of the ordinary.

One girl caught the eye of the King.   She was a thin girl with long dark hair.   “Hello.  My name is Amanda.  Um, something interesting about me is that I like to play video games.  They are fun!”   she smiled.

The King was smitten.  What a beauty. He thought.   When the class got out the students all moved to their other classes.  The King did not get many chances to speak to Amanda face to face.

——————- —————– ——————

The King was sitting with his boys.  They were at one of the houses.   They were talking about whatever, discussing video games and tv and sometimes which girls they like.

One boy looked at the King, “Hey boss man you got any girls you been eyeing?”

The King hesitated, “Well I guess so.”

“Well damn who is it?”

“It’s a girl in one of my classes.   Her name is Amanda.”

A boy blurted out, “The Burger?”

” I don’t know why you would call her that, she is a beautiful girl.   I plan on making her mine.”

“Okay bossman you think she is the one for you, huh?”

“Yeah I sure do.”

Some of the boys looked around from one to another.  Then another blurted out, “Wow can’t believe bossman has his eyes on Amanda Queensberger.”

Lemonade (Rough Draft) The Story Continues

The King surveyed his troops.  It was a ragtag force.  Kids and young men, nobody older than 16.

“Thank you all for coming.  I’m gonna spell it out for you guys real simple.  We have our stands okay?  Our stands is where we do our business.  You guys got that?”    The king spoke and looked around at his boys.   The boys in front of him nodded nervously.

“Right, we do our business at the stands.  The stand is where we sell.”  The king spoke.  He looked at his boys and tried to make eye contact with each one of them.  He wanted to let them know the importance of his words.

“Each stand will have a little and a big.  One little guy and one big guy.  One and one.  The little guy handles the lemonade and the big guy handles the goods.  We are gonna be sure these stands are made of wood.   And each stand will also have a bat beneath it, a wooden bat.  That is there for our protection.”

The King continued on, ” We are gonna have burner phones alright?  Just flip phones.  Do not give your phone number to anyone except people in our operation.”

“These are our burner phones and how we are gonna communicate.  You can text okay?  But, if this stuff is sensitive then DO NOT send the info with a text.  You can call me okay? You boys got that?  Make a phone call!”

The King spoke some more, ” What we do here is simple.  We have sugar and we have sugar.  We hide in plain sight.   You boys got it?”

Boys.  We are here to make money.  Okay?  The goal is to get the money.

But you kids need to know there will be risk.  If you think the police or your parents are suspicious and want to get your phone, then BREAK IT!  you got that?  Break the phone, we can’t have authorities get it.

Don’t be afraid to destroy the phone.  These phones are cheap.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

An interesting film.  It was well shot (cinematography).  The plot is not overly complicated but the movie does have twists and turns.  The film has an interesting tone as well, definitely a “black comedy” as well as a drama.     The movie is an original idea and it is an entertaining film.   I don’t know if it is one of the BEST movies of 2017, but it was definitely a good movie and I would be willing to watch it a second time.

You might even like this film if you are from Missouri (or maybe maybe even North Carolina)

Rape On The Night Shift, Taking Advantage of the Working Poor

This builds off of the Me Too Movement.  There was an investigation done on the Janitorial industry.  It turns out that many of the janitors are women who work at night time and often by themselves.  And believe it or not, the industry has supervisors that take advantage of these workers.  Some of them don’t know their rights and some of them have fear of being deported.   If you are interested in this kind of story then check out the story from Nightline:

It is an interesting story and a good example of investigative journalism.

Conspiracy, AntiSemitism, The Origin

The Origin of the Jewish Conspiracy that the world is controlled by the Jews.

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

The text above was published in 1903.  It is an Antisemitic fabricated text.
The text was denounced in THE TIMES in 1920 1921.
The work takes some inspiration from the 1864 work: Dialogue in Hell between Machiavelli and Montesquieu)
If you have ever been curious about where AntiSemitism comes from or where some Antisemites draw their information then know that The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a very influential text.
You can find interesting info on this work by searching online and looking at the wikipedia page.

Geisha, Memoirs of A (Biscuit Post)

I read Memoirs of a Geisha.   What a read!

I have often been interested in underworld kind of stuff like drug dealing and prostitution.   I recently watched Breaking Bad as I had never seen it before so I got a sense of a drug dealing so I thought I should read a book about Prostitution.

Geisha actually are not prostitutes.  They are entertainers who sit with men and pour them sake and delight them with conversation and dance and song.  The geisha can have sex with them if they choose but usually they do not.

The world of the Geisha is a social world where you have to struggle for power.  The story reminded me of Robert Greene’s 48 Laws of Power in that there were certain rules the characters had to follow in order to succeed and “play the game” so to speak.

 

Also, in the world of the Geisha if you are a beautiful young lady then you can auction off your virginity for a large fee.   Quite an interesting phenomenon.

Memoirs of a Geisha is not a book for girls only.  It is an interesting tale about trying to survive in a strange world with its own rules.

The book is a bestseller for a reason.  Once you start reading it, it becomes a “page turner.”

2 thumbs up.

Biscuit approved.
