Sunday Photo Fiction Part 5: The Exchange


Part 4: Roman Ruins and Revenge

It had been months since Graham had seen Allie. He missed her terribly. Allie’s kidnapper Jax had asked for increasingly more money in exchange for Allie.

Now here Graham was with ten-million-dollars in a drab duffle bag, waiting in the front of a big rig truck for Jax to come get the money. He did not know what Jax’s problem was. He remembered him from school and his day’s at Stanford University in Business. Jax was extremely competitive.

They had been friends once, but then Jax became exasperated one evening after Graham had picked-up a girl Jax had his eye on. He told Graham he was tired of how Graham’s family always paid for Graham and Graham never had to work for anything. Jax was tired of coming in second in everything in life to Graham. When Graham’s sister Cassandra, Jax’s on again off again girlfriend, dumped him for one of Graham’s other friends, Jax blamed Graham. Now Jax was a powerful criminal and Graham was at his mercy.

Graham waited and waited for Jax to come get the money so he would return his beloved Allie. But when Allie showed up with a gun pointed at Graham and took the money Graham was shocked. She hit Graham over the back of the head with the gun and darkness took him and his heart broke when he saw Allie through the window kissing Jax and riding off into the sunset without Graham.

Sunday Photo Fiction: Part 4 – Roman Ruins and Revenge


Part 3: Fatal Attraction

I’ve been in this city before. I remember the buildings and the blue painted doors. Jax has taken me to Rome. I can’t believe I’ve been with Jax four months now and that Graham and I ever existed as a couple. Jax is my dream and he has taken me to my favorite place in the world, Italy.

We are visiting an old Roman building dedicated to the Roman God Bacchus. Was he the God of wine? I’m not really sure, but the wine here is has been fantastic.

Jax squeezes my hand gently and kisses my forehead as I look at the old paintings on the wall of this ruins. “Ready to go my Allie – Cat?” he says. I smile and nod and as an after thought ask:

” Jax when are you going to get the Everett’s money, we sent Graham the ransom note weeks ago?”

Jax smiles,”Allie baby, don’t worry about the money I’ll have it by tomorrow night.” I nod placated for the moment.

” But you’re not going to leave me with Graham are you Jax? I’m your girl now?” Jax squeezes me tight and whispers in my ear:

” Allie, you are mine and I’m never going to give you up. Besides how it must hurt Graham Everett to lose his girl to me, that’s half my revenge.”

I smile at Jax running my fingers through his hair and we leave the old Roman ruin together.
